Comfort

The only thing I disliked was the parking. The parking was not convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I did not like the narrowness of the hallways, but it was to be expected considering the size and location of the hotel.

Disappointing

On arrival, our non-smoking room smelled like smoke. The staff clearly knew, because they left the window wide open (and the heat cranked since it's Fall) in an attempt to air it out. By late evening, the smell had pretty much cleared. The wifi was awful. We tried on multiple devices. It took about 5 minutes to load an email. At all times of day (they tried telling us it was due to overuse). It works fine in the business center, so I spent most of my time down there. The elevator is a joke. It skips floors and goes to whatever button was last pressed. The maintenance/cleaning people would press the button in the basement (next to the business center) to try to go up, but consistently had to call the front desk for them to "send the elevator down". Breakfast was fine. The eggs always looked a little too pre-made, so I couldn't bring myself to try them. But there were other options. Semi-sketchy bus stop out front, but I never had any problems. The area in general seems relatively fine. The cleaning staff wouldn't come clean the rooms until around 2 in the afternoon. I had things going on each morning, but was usually back by then. Always made for an awkward encounter (especially since my Spanish is kind of rusty). I won't be staying here again. The price was very low and appealing, but I guess you really do get what you pay for.

Not a great experience - frustrated every day

Bed Comfortable, clean sheets and towels. Given key card for occupied room, then someone else was given key card for our room. Deadbolt not working, but had chain on door. Had room door as bathroom door and only way to close it was with deadbolt. Hmm working deadbolt on bathroom and not room door. Room not vacuumed during stay. Reservations for 5 days, elevator didn't work for 3. Repairmen worked on it 3 days. Breakfast not up to par, powered eggs, had sausage, links and patties everyday. Black bananas, juice machine not working, uncovered pitcher of orange juice. Hotel has a bus stop in front, had to unload and load car. Costly parking 1 or 2 blocks away. Toilet kept running reported that and deadbolt to front desk, I fixed the toilet when no one did. Due to the size and type of door, the threshold for the bathroom had to be fabricated out of metal, but when stepped on buckled and made a noise. An inspector was there meeting with the manager, making recommendations for the breakfast, only one done was a lid for the orange juice. We felt sorry for the staff, as they kept apologizing for the elevator problem, often times running up 5 floors to tell us, because when we did call the desk they could not understand us and thought we were checking out and not calling to find out if the elevator was working. Staying here did not bode well for giving a good impression on Baltimore or Best Western. Very disappointing experience.

bargain hotel for the area

Parking was slim to none. The hotel elevator was not working properly and was forced to use the stairs. The 1st room assigned to was nice but had a poor view. So I requested another room that had a view but a insufficient air conditioning unit. The thresholds in the entrance of room and the bathroom were very high that cause myself and my guest to trip over repeatedly. That really needs to be addressed. The staff was very attentive and courteous.

budget friendly

Overall I had a good experience. The front desk staff was friendly and willing to help in any way. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The hotel was in a good location only a few blocks from inner harbor and tons of restaurants. The free breakfast was nice as well. My only issue was with house keeping. They would knock on the door very early in the morning and just come in if you didnt answer right away. Overall, for the price it was a good stay.

Bad Experience

This hotel was bad! We had to switch rooms 3 times apon our arrival until we found a room where the AC worked. They put us in a room with a window AC unit that was plugged into the lamp on the nightstand. The shower door was off its track. They only cleaned our room 2 of the 5 days we stayed. When we asked at 7:00pm why our room was not cleaned, the staff stated that the cleaning staff had gone home for the day and did not get several rooms cleaned.They never left us enough towls either. As soon as we got out of our car, to check in, we were asked by bums out front for money. this was the worst hotel I ever stayed at.

Small hotel but nice rooms

I called to the front desk asking for more towels and I was told to walk out into the hallway and find the housekeeping attendant and get my own towels. Poor customer service. Also way too expensive for what I got.

It's in a good location, it was a little noisy at 1 in the morning from the street. Room was not cleaned on the first day, I came back to my room at 3:30 on the second day and it wasn't cleaned.
