Amazing location, but terrible value for the price
Jul 22, 2014 by: ChristineC919 from Dallas, Texas
Great location, terrible hotel. The rooms are awkwardly arranged and small. The worst thing, though, are the bathrooms. The bathrooms are a disaster. I had to move the luggage rack and the coat hangers to close the closet door. And, I paid extra for a whirlpool tub. The tub was disgusting---circa 1975, so I did not want to take a bath and it did not provide the romantic extra that I intended when I paid extra. The night we checked in, I tried to take a shower. First, I pulled a towel off of the towel bar and the entire towel bar fell off of the wall. Then, I got into the tub and positioned the handheld shower (yes, no shower head) and, when I tried to turn on the hot water, nothing came out. Then the shower pull came off in my hand. I gave up and decided to try again in the morning. The next morning, again water came out when I turned on the hot water. So, I called downstairs to ask to change rooms and was told there were no other rooms. The maintenance man came up to see if he could fix the hot water. So, he came in and re-attached the towel bar to the wall and made the hot water come out. The hot water was scalding and, even with the cold water on, it was too hot. Then, as I showered, I realized that the tub was not draining. When my companion finished his shower (we didn't want to turn off the hot water, just in case), the hot water wouldn't turn off. So, the tub was filling and the steam began to set off the smoke detector. I had to call for the repairman to come back to turn off the water, all while the smoke detector was going off. We packed our things and moved rooms, obviously. When we got another room for the second night, the bathroom was equally small and the tub equally disgusting. The hot water did work and the tub did drain, at least. However, when I checked out, I had to request a discount for the ridiculous inconvenience of the first night. The discount offered was LESS THAN HALF of one night's stay. Given the ridiculously high rate at this hotel for Baltimore and the ridiculous evening and morning we experienced (as well as the overall crapiness of both rooms), the discount was insufficient. I would not recommend that anyone stay in this hotel. Don't be seduced by the location or the cute exterior or lobby. The rooms are terrible and no one, under any circumstances, should rent a room with a whirlpool tub until they gut and remodel those bathrooms.
Great Stay in Fells Point at Admiral Fell Inn
Jul 21, 2014 by: Theresa K from Boston, Massachusetts
We had a large family gathering for a family wedding. We virtually took over the Admiral Fell Inn. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. They were responsive to any need. The location is very convenient - expecially since the reception was on the Spirit of Baltimore. No matter what time we were coming or going, we were greeted with warm smiles and a sense of humor which made our stay that much more pleasant.
Pretty Historic Inn
Jul 19, 2014 by: Patricia C from Pittsburgh
Stayed one night with my sister in Room 195 with two double beds. This room was in the back, away from the Fells Point nightlife noise, and very quiet. Very clean. Nicely decorated, well-appointed, comfy and cozy. Enough lamps to make the room warmly bright. Pretty, well-lit bathroom with lots of thick, soft white towels and good water pressure in the shower. Friendly, accommodating staff. One blip: At 8:00 a.m. on checkout day, housekeeping was knocking on the door, wanting to clean the room! I said we would be leaving at noon, the hotel's checkout time. She corrected me, saying checkout time was 11:00 a.m. A call to the front desk verified the noon checkout time, solved the problem and housekeeping did not bother us again. This might be a staff training issue.

Location trumped staff!
Jul 17, 2014 by: lesky from Rochester, NY
After a rocky check-in, as in no one was at the desk for almost half an hour, our stay was all we hoped for. The location is excellent. It's right next to everything you want to eat, drink and see. Short (10 seconds) walk to the water taxi makes Inner Harbor easily in your vacation plans as well. The location can not be beat, our room was huge, clean and quiet. We will definitely be back!
