Old YMCA

This hotel was a pleasure to stay at, it doesn't have on site parking but there's a nice parking garage across the street. Not much in terms of amenities but it is In the city. I was able to get anywhere easily. Room was nice and compfy. It's nice.

Perfectly adequate hotel

The location of this hotel is excellent: it is located just across the Walters Art Gallery, which is one of the best museums in the country, within walking distance to the Inner Harbor, and in close proximity to Camden yards and the Johns Hopkins campus. The hotel is not fancy nor does it have many extras, but it is perfectly adequate for a stay in Baltimore. Everyone was friendly, and the room comes with a free hot breakfast.

Adequate, very basic lodging

I just needed a place to stay for the night in the middle of a long roadtrip. This hotel was very very basic- a bed (not the most comfortable, old ratty covers), a chair in a corner, and a TV that we did not use. It was not decorated or designed to look like other nicer hotels, with paint or wallpaper. So I would not stay here if I was vacationing, but it served the purpose for lodging overnight. Adequate but not great. The one wonderful thing was the staff- they were extremely helpful. I dealt with three different desk workers during my stay there, and all three were the most welcoming and helpful.

Mediocre

The only things I liked about this hotel was that it was close to many of the attractions in Baltimore, and a short walk to the free city bus. Also the shower had good pressure and there was a (very average) free breakfast. The pillows and bed were hard, the room felt unclean, the toilet was unclean. There was only 1/2 a roll of toilet paper. The A/C was either freezing or we had to leave it off. The blanket thin and worn.

A great value

I needed to be in town for a couple of days mid week, and I wanted a location that was walking distance from the University of Baltimore. This hotel was perfectly located, and it was by far the best price in town. I was able to easily walk everywhere in town from the hotel, including the popular harbor area. The hotel's parking area was full, but there was a parking garage across the street for $10/day, which was perfect. The room was very basic, but it definitely had everything that I needed, and I was comfortable staying there. The room was clean overall, but the bathroom was in need of some added attention, which is why the cleanliness score is low. This is an older hotel, but it is in pretty good shape. The staff was great. Everyone I interacted with was really friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the breakfast staff. The hot breakfast was a nice touch too. If you're looking for a place with all the frills to hang around in all day, this is probably not the hotel for you. If you're looking for a comfortable, reasonably priced hotel to rest in after a day out enjoying Baltimore, this place fits the bill!

The agent that checked me in was so welcoming!! I wish I remember her name. I thought it was a nice hotel. it's near Charles St. which has a variety of dining options. Also, near the attractions at the harbor. I would go back.

its a walk to the inner harbor

Got there and the room door handle came off in our hand, had to move to another room. Have to pay add $15 for parking very limited. Get to breakfast early. Some staff really friendly some not. Three workers cut the breakfast line in front of guests very rude and then took all the bacon.
