Too noisy to sleep
Oct 23, 2014 by: Adam W from Boston
First, the pros: the hotel is in a great location in Fells Point, the check-in staff are friendly and the wifi is fast. The major cons: the rooms are dark, dirty and dingy, although the beds are clean. The main issue with the hotel, though, is noise. I'm not a light sleeper, and can tolerate most noise, but this is ridiculous. There's a loud karaoke bar directly under many of the rooms, including the one I stayed in. The bass shook the room and the singing was incredibly loud. It made it impossible to sleep. When I called the front desk, they said it would be over by 10:00, but this turned out to not be true. The bar is actually open until 1:30am, and some of the other bars seem to go as late as 2:00. Plus the street noise from people talking, arguing and fighting continues even after the bars close. They were unable (or unwilling?) to move me, so I didn't get any sleep. It's important to underscore that the hotel is literally ON TOP of the karaoke bar, so it's incredibly noisy. The windows are also not noise-proof, which allows a lot of street noise in. But no amount of sound insulation could possibly make up for the noise that comes up through the floor.
Cool Place to Stay!

We loved that this hotel had so much history and was located right in the heart of the action. It was clean, decorated with an historical appeal, and everyone we were in contact with was friendly and helpful. We were in town for a medical appointment and unfortunately didn't get much sleep because we truly were in the heart of the action. The noise from people walking to and from bars really carries! Still, we would stay there again.
An historic jem!!!!!!!!!!!!1

The Inn is historic and offers a lot of unique architecture. The staff is polite and helpful. It is located in the middle of everything. Water taxis are just across the street, there are always cabs by the inn and the inn itself offers a free shuttle to the attractions close by. A lot of great places to eat right by the inn so you can park your car and go it on foot. What you need to know is don't pay the money for the Inns breakfast not worth even close to the price go across the street to eat. Second park your own car in the parking garage located close by soooo much cheaper than valet service don't park on the street too much crazy partying at night. when you book at the Inn each room is different but the same price so ask for one with a refrig avoid rooms that overlook the street atleast on weekends the party scene is like new Orleans and goes on till 230 am impossible to sleep. Gregory M Longus Jr our shuttle driver was excellent and so was Koury at the front desk. If you have AAA use it ,makes it cheaper. The aquarium was disappointment and done in 2 hours not worth the cash. don't bring growlers from out of state they can't fill them. Best burgers and crab cake sandwich at koopers right by the inn. Brick oven pizza up the street was good. Nice seafood at Rip Tide also up the street. Nothing is cheap at the harbor!!
The little things add up to average

This hotel is in a great location near the harbor. The rooms are clean and there is free WiFi that is quite fast for a freebie, which is always a good thing. I realize that there are restrictions on the types of modifications they probably allow in this neighborhood, and I'm sure that some people like the "old world charm" of this property. But the lobby is dark and dated, as are the rooms. The bed and pillows were lumpy and uncomfortable. The worst part is that some of the hotel is on top of a karaoke bar that is open until 1:30 am. My room was directly above it and, although the staff tried to move me (thank you!), there were no rooms far enough away from the bar to make it worthwhile. The bass shook the room and - well, let's say many "singers" are far from it. A friend was staying on the third floor and he said he could even hear and feel it in his room. My bottom line is that if you want a quiet, comfortable stay, look elsewhere.

The location was perfect. You could walk to restaurants and shops; however, if you were looking for a good night's sleep - forget it. The music from the nearby bars kept us up until after 2AM. Breakfast buffet was included in our stay - very disappointing - the scrambled eggs and bacon were cold. The staff was friendly and very helpful in recommending restaurants for lunch and dinner.
