Seen how they were and really seemed to improved.

As a fan of Hotel Impossible, how could I not stay? Knew exactly what to look for as well. Only issue was the filter on the air con; had to clean it, big deal. Paid for a twin bed and they gave me a neat African hunter theme room in corner with a queen size. Come on, that's proper service. Even spent time looking at the great pictures on the wall. Slept for about 10 hours very comfortably after a long day of flying. The products in the bathroom were the best I have seen in any place I've stayed. Cold bottle of water waiting for me was a nice touch on hot day. The owner was very nice and helped me get in over the phone when I got there even though she explained everything to me in a voice mail I didn't think to check. Never stayed at an Inn before and this was definitely a good experience. Did take me a while to find the wi-fi code. It was on the wall in the lobby, would rather it be in the room. Oh well. Also, highly recommend the restaurant literally 5 yards away around the corner. The food was excellent and RJ at the bar is a really good guy.
old and unkempt

No old charm, nor nostalgic past… Just an unkempt, cheap joint. Apparently, this hotel was good in a remote past; not anymore. The place needs major refurbishing. I am amazed they are still functioning. I guess people coming to MICA or UB need a place just across the street. I spent one night in this place, but I could not see myself spending a second night in this dirty creepy place. I booked a real hotel about a mile away and walked to the campus. If I knew ahead of time how this hotel looks like, I would have found something else in the area, probably at a similar price.
Seriously, these people are not over exaggerating, DO NOT STAY HERE!

I knew this place wouldn't be great from reading the reviews but I also had the notion that people who review hotels were generally on the picky side with a tendency to make mountains out of molehills. For this I paid the price. The price of enduring itchy sheets, tiny rough towels, half a roll of toilet paper which was never replenished(until I bought my own from the grocery), a tiny fan as air conditioning, in and out wifi and absolutely nonexistent customer service. Also all electronics would be mysteriously unplugged every time I returned from an outing, which gave me a creepy big brother feeling. It is confounding to think these people make money in the hospitality industry. Do not stay here!

I was looking for a one night stay so I could attend the baseball at Camden yards and stumbled across this place by accident, turns out the worst accident I've ever had, no aircon just a table fan, promised wifi but did not work, dirty shower room and toilet, when I payed the lady upon arrival I was told to pay cash because "it's easier for everybody" the cost was $114 for the night, no wonder she had a nice big grin when I handed over my cash. I just couldn't wait for the morning to arrive so I could get out if this place. Will I ever stay again, NO WAY IN HELL.
The Truth about the Abarcrombie Inn

Do NOT stay at this place! When we drove into the parking lot, rats scattered. There was NO ONE there to greet us or check us in (we had been given an electronic code for the front door lock.) The place's vibe is just this side of the Bates Motel in Hitchock's "Psycho". There was not staff around at all, and I saw no other guests coming and going. We were put in a room on the top floor -- outside of it was the hotel's air conditioning unit which made loud noise all night long, so it was hard to sleep. The room itself looked like something that Miss Haversham would be found in. I would not recommend this place in any way!
