Wonderful inn in downtown.
Mar 06, 2013 by: Ken R from Bristol, Connecticut
We came here to attend the long awaited wedding of our dear family friends. It was a beautiful and memorable event that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. It was also our first time in Baltimore, and we had the best time including our stay at this historical inn. It was the perfect location because the reception ceremony was also in the downtown area. We appreciate the complimentary room upgrade to the suite. It was all we could have asked for besides having to take a cab elsewhere for errands. Took lots of pictures to add to our album. Wonderful inn and room in downtown Baltimore.
More benefits and budget friendly.

This hotel was a great place to rest my head, and got more benefits for my money. Believe me, after reading some of the reviews, Abacrombie Inn was the last place I wanted to go to, but I just couldn't afford to stay in the high priced hotels in the area. I usually play it safe with Choice Hotel chains whenever I travel, and stay away from independently owned properties. I admit taking a crazy risk booking here but it actually paid off for me. Simply stating, the accommodation was within my budget, clean room, superb location (safe/quiet), and parking. There wasn’t much going on around the neighborhood, but I got a chance to hang out at a bar a few blocks away. Two thumbs up.
Decent room but no elevator!

We spent a night here on a busy Saturday this month, so it seemed. I booked a room several weeks ago, and specifically requested a room closest to the lobby because my girlfriend has a bad ankle. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and we ended up taking a hike all the way up to the 4th floor with no elevator! Most hotels these days at least have an elevator but Abacrombie doesn't. They apparently were sold out of rooms and couldn't make any move arrangements for us which is a shame. It was pretty upsetting to go through, but we got a decent, clean room if anything can make up for our discomfort. It had lots of space and a sitting area with a comfortable sofa. The front desk manager was nice enough to give us a discount to our room bill.
Very lovely inn!

My husband and I run a family catering business together, and recently had an appointment with a client in Baltimore city. We made walkin reservations at the hotel after wrapping up our work that evening and trying very hard to find Abacrombie Inn. We got lost a few times after missing a turn here and there, but the staff was very patient in helping us find our way around and welcoming us in to our room. Not bad at all! Parking and location were the main reasons we agreed to book here but the room was very beautiful and cozy. I spent some quality time in the lobby downstairs to read magazines and relax since it was nice and quiet. You couldn't even hear a pin drop. We were served a light breakfast by someone claiming to be the manager the following morning before signing out. We left very pleased with our experience, and would love to come back if we get another opportunity.
used to be better, now its awful

I stayed here for work on a regular basis, once a week, for about 6 weeks or so. This was 5 years ago. Either they had me on a "good" floor or this place has significantly gone downhill. I booked this place recently and found it to be an entirely different place than I remembered. The bed is clean, but the sheets are the cheapest quality you can get, same with towels and just about everything else. The furniture is old, not in a charming way, but in a gross way. Things are dusty, the carpet is gross, the bathroom full of rusty and paint chipped bits. I didn't want to walk barefoot, didn't want to put my stuff on the hangers, the place just gave me the creeps. The only highlight is that after I changed my room, my new room was Safari themed, with pictures of Hemingway on the walls and a leopard print bed spread. The guy that worked there was super nice, but he'd only been there for a week and he told me that he was leaving in a week for a new job elsewhere. They can't even keep their employees here! All they need is to sink a bit of money, a bit of love and care, a bit of time into this place and it could be a really nice charming B&B. You can get away with some of the flaws if you just work on some of the basics. But its clear whoever owns this place is either totally broke or doesn't give a @#$% about the place.
