Mixed experience

Nothing special about the location, other than proximity to the stadium - it's in kind of an industrial part of town, and the construction on the casino had the streets and sidewalk all torn up, making it difficult to walk anywhere. To make up for that they have an hourly shuttle to the inner Harbor. They did have parking available for $15 a day - but they were very full this weekend and recommended that since I had a space, I shouldn't drive anywhere or I might not be able to park when I come back (not what I want to hear when I'm paying for parking and the hotel isn't in a great neighborhood). The room itself was great - big, clean. Beds were comfortable with extra pillows. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good - could have used a few more healthy options. Overall - for the price a good place to spend the night, then get out to a better part of town (if they'll let you take your car).

Good value

My son and I recently went to an Orioles game. We picked this hotel for two reasons: proximity and cost. The cost, and the hotel itself, we're great. A typical Holiday Inn express Hotel. No-frills, but clean and certainly good enough for a quick overnight. The proximity to the ballpark though was another matter. Although the distance was only about a mile, that mile was a tricky mix of highways and questionable neighborhoods. If one wants to be able to walk to the ballpark, this is not the hotel to do it from. They do provide shuttle service on the hour to and from the games, but that is not quite the same thing as walking.

Not worth the price

The website was misleading and made it look way better than it was. The location was not in walking distance or as close to attractions (National Aquarium, Inner Harbor) as it specified. They do give discounts to the Aquarium. The "hot breakfast" was a automatic pancake maker (yuck) warmed up ham and egg patties. Room was okay, comfy beds and pillows - overlooking noisy construction of a casino. Would recommend looking elsewhere for this price, much left to be desired!

The hotel has a discount to the Aquarium. You book it online with a code BUT make sure you have the hotel print your confirmation and bring it with you. I just brought the confirmation email on my phone and it took them 10 min to figure it out. Also, this hotel is NOT w/in walking distance and in a sketchy area. Also do NOT go to Sonic nearby, worst food I have ever had.

Family weekend

The hotel itself was not bad. There was a LOT of construction next door, shuttle driver said they are putting up a casino. Hotel Desk Staff was not especially helpful, not rude, just not helpful. For instance, no one bothered to tell us we could get discount tickets for the Aquarium and that we actually HAD TO PURCHASE THE TICKETS AT THE HOTEL. The shuttle driver suggested a tourist trap of a restaurant for dinner, over $120 for 3 people! With a 17% gratuity automatically included.

Family vacation

Very Friendly staff, nice pool, fair breakfast. Our non smoking room was on the same floor as smoking rooms- not cool- had to walk through smoke to get to our non smoking room. Had to pay $15 per night to pay at this hotel- not cool

Great experience!

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The staff was very courteous, helpful and cheerful. I especially appreciated the shuttle to the Inner Harbor and meeting Mike, the driver, who was very pleasant. The rooms very clean. They could use some more parking. The location is very close to the stadiums, but the neighborhood is a little run down. All in all, I would recommennd this hotel.

Perfect for football game

Great time for my family. Shuttle was great. Breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were beautiful. Staff was helpful. I have no complaints. Except that the ravens beat my giants. But I won't hold that against you.
