A delightful oasis
Jan 18, 2015 by: TreusNetti from Columbia, Maryland
Great location - near Little Italy and Fells Point. You feel like you're near it all (which you are), and yet you feel like you're getting away from it all at the same time! The staff is friendly and helpful, the room we stayed in (Estate Room) was lushly decorated and so cozy and made you feel like you were sleeping at a Victorian inn. The bathroom was really nice as well - marble tile, jetted tub, beautiful custom shower. At first we were put off by the fireplace being electric instead of wood-burning or even gas, but it's a very nice "fake" fireplace and gave us the look and feel of a real fire - so cozy! We wish we had one more night here - all we wanted to do was stay in the room and soak in the coziness! Breakfast ordering was easy - we just filled out a form and left it on our door the night before - you can choose whether to have your breakfast in the dining room or brought to your room, and they also offer coffee or tea brought to your room before breakfast time. The food itself was simple, nothing to write home about, but satisfying nonetheless. I will definitely return here in the future and recommend it to friends!
first stay at a bed and breakfast
Jan 12, 2015 by: 909msal from Elkins Park, Pennsylvania
This was our first ever stay at a bed and breakfast and we did so because we wanted more than just a hotel room for a romantic weekend away. This is a lovely inn, really well kept with beautiful furnishings. The staff could not be nicer or more accomodating and our needs were definitely met. We parked our car for $10 a night at a lot 1 block away and validated by the inn to get that rate. We walked everywhere including the Power Plant Live (bars/restaurants) Little Italy for dinner and Whole Foods/Bin 604 for wine. Pros: very private, comfortable bed(except for the sheets, i found them "scratchy", clean, pretty and romantic, breakfast was nice and they served it in your room if desired, lovely staff Cons: sink was slow as mentioned by someone else - who cares - i was there for my husband not the sink, street noise - that was a problem the first night. The second night we hooked up our bluetooth speaker and put on meditation music via pandora (free wifi) and I slept like a baby, buses and all. However, if you are sensitive to noise, I would not recommend the Declaration suite as it sits right on Lombard Street and is noisy at night. Recommendations: provide a white noise machine or bluetooth speaker/music so guests can play music if they don't bring their own.
Waste of money do not go there

Didn't like the location. The noise at night was horrible couldn't sleep at all. Sink was clogged, tub didn't work. Call the front desk, they said they are going to try to fix. They didn't. Mention this at check out. The guy roll up his eyes didn't care. Room service: breakfast was ok, decent coffee. As you can see I am not planning ever get back. Do yourself a favor find another place with the kind of money you spend here you can get in s much much better place.
What a great place!

We've stayed in a number of B&Bs in Balto, and this one is right at the top of our list. The neighborhood is transitional, with newish residential development along with some older shops and businesses. Only a few blocks from Little Italy and its numberless restaurants, it's a slightly longer walk to Harbor East. The place shares a lovely courtyard with a historic mansion and a new performance space that incorporates the salvaged cast-iron facades of a now-demolished building. The inn has a small elevator. Spacious rooms, as well as a lovely breakfast room and a nicely furnished parlor for lounging or enjoying a cup of coffee.
A Room in History
Dec 13, 2014 by: lmdja from Massachusetts
The Carrollton Inn is perfectly located for access to the harbor area with shops and restaurants and close to transportation. The Charm City Circulator is a free local bus that stops across the street and accesses many of the areas that visitors might want to see. The Inn is old and elegant but the staff is young and helpful. The incuded breakfast cooked to order each morning and served in a lovely dining room was a plus.
