Parking was a major issue; the staff was unfriendly, harried and not pleasant to deal with. Would not recommend. The room was fine, although the air conditioning left something to be desired.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Historic Inns Of Annapolis Hotel

What a Joke

from weekends
Not the place to stay in Annapolis! Everything about our stay was very poor. Rooms dirty , service poor. NEVER AGAIN. We did spend sometime looking for a B&B to stay in next time.
Flag House and The Inn at 30 Maryland look beautiful.

Be Careful

from RuckN
The Historic Inns of Annapolis consists of three separate properties: The Maryland Inn, The Robert Johnson House, and The Governor Calvert House. During a recent trip to Annapolis, my wife and I stayed at two of them.
When we arrived, we were assigned a room in the Maryland Inn which is located at the top of Main Street right on Church Circle. This is a very nice location. The check in desk is at the The Governor Calvert House on State Circle which is also where the Robert Johnson House is located. We were efficiently transported to the Maryland Inn. Do not under any circumstances allow them to house you in this building, particularly for the prices that they charge. A fair fee for the room would be in the $50.00 range and then only for the location. The room was poorly decorated with "antiques" that appeared to be cheap reproductions made in the 1950's. We encountered pealing paint in the room, mildew in the bath tub, a cracked window, an uncovered electrical outlet and plenty of dirt. We had arrived late in the day and went to an early dinner.
The next morning I called and complained about the quality of the room. We were moved that day to the Governor Calvert House. We were placed in room 412. That room and 410 share a balcony that overlooks State Circle and the Maryland State Capital building. These are probably the two best rooms on the property. The room was clean and nicely decorated and the State Circle location was equally close to downtown.
I would give the Governor Calvert House a 3-4 rating. I do not have any idea what the accommodations are like in the Robert Johnson House. If you plan of staying in Annapolis, I would be very careful about the Historic Inns as you don't know what you will get.

$259 a night and we had two rooms reserved for 5 nights, if we had known what we was getting we would of stayed miles away and got a rental car.
We appreciate historic buildings but...situated between two oneway streets, the windows are allowing ALL the street noise to come in the room, sleeping on the sidewalk could not of been noiser. Carpets were dirty and stained. Picture is attached. The wingback chair covered in fabric, had both its arms worn and ripped, picture also attached. The soap dish in the small bath had caked soap built up on it from the last month or longer, we were afraid to place our soap on it.
I dont know where the problem is on running this hotel. The staff was nice and considerate, the issues are dirty rooms and not replacing items that need replaced when they are worn...poor management somewhere up the chain.
We had reservations for 5 nights but ended up moving in 3 days as soon as we could get reservations at another hotel. The Historic Inns have three different buildings in seperate locations in Annapolis, I have no idea what the other 2 are like, but would be very leary to rent any of their rooms, with the conditions we were given in ours.

Definitely stay away

Just came back from a stay at the Maryland Inn and it was a dump. I wish I had read these reviews first – everything said is on target. The convenience of location is the ONLY thing it has going for it. Originally my family was going to be placed in the convention center (1980’s) section of the Governor Calvert House, but since we wanted to actually stay in a “historic inn” we asked for another room. This must have ticked them off, because they sent us off to a badly decorated dingy room with peeling paint and plaster in the Maryland Inn. I had to call housekeeping twice to get a luggage stand and extra towels, so we each would have one, and got an attitude rather than courtesy. In the cramped bathroom, the walls and the tub paint were peeling and the diverter on the shower was not working so only a dribble of cold water came out of the showerhead. The drain was not working either so the water half-filled the tub. Needless to say we asked to move to another room. They sent us to a better-looking room in the Maryland Inn - still peeling plaster and paint, but at least this one had wallpaper on one wall and some attempt at décor. The tub still drained poorly and apparently leaked through the ceiling into the lobby below. The biggest problem was the noise – the hotel is wedge-shaped and fits in to the triangle where two busy streets meet. There is a restaurant and popular bar in the basement of the building. There were shouting drunks, thumping music, traffic noise and sirens until very early in the morning. Apparently the state congress was in session that weekend and meeting down the street, which may account for why there was so much activity. In addition in the room directly above us, they apparently placed a volleyball team which sounded like they were coming through the ceiling. Parking is also a problem – valet parking with the hotel is $18 per night and there is hardly any alternative on the streets. Definitely stay away.

I loved the Historic Inns of Annapolis, What a delight!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My recent visit to the Historic Inns of Annapolis was wonderful. I loved the great location. Service was a delight. The staff was friendly and willing to go the extra mile. I will definitely visit again. I am definitely recommending the hotel to everyone who visits Annapolis.

Terrible Location for a Conference

from A TripAdvisor Member
Poor service, unprofessional attitudes and mistakes dominated our event. Neither the sales or catering managers were available on-site throughout the duration of our conference. We were assured that the hotel could accommodate a group of our size (approximately 120), yet clearly it exceeded the capacity. We ran out of food and wine at our reception, lunch was poorly executed and despite a full pre-ordered menu, the food arrived cold. No beverages were served at the tables, not even water! The audiovisual equipment (microphones) never worked properly, which is obviously detrimental in a setting where most of the events revolve around presentations. The conference rooms were dirty, the hotel rooms were dirty, and the table linens were stained. We had to follow up about everything to ensure that the event went somewhat according to plan. We ran out of coffee cups, utensils and napkins every morning for breakfast and had to track down a hotel staff member to replenish. The hotel staff even made independent decisions without consulting us that contributed to the disorganization of our event. The hotel staff was loud, rude and completely unaware of the standard operating procedures for a large event, and a supervising employee was nowhere to be seen. Once the hotel had made the sale for our conference, they disappeared. Also, there isn't a business center or a way to fax, make copies, etc. Dial up Internet that only worked occassionally is all they could offer. Not only were the main conference rooms a mess, but the hotel rooms were dirty, smelled musty and the mattresses were extremely uncomfortable. The air conditioning didn't work properly and the rooms overlooking the atrium in the Governor Calvert House, can be quite loud. The "quaint" atmosphere does not even come close to making up for the lack of service and cleanliness.

t Bother

from A TripAdvisor Member
There are three hotels in the group, and each one was scarier than the next. The rooms are dirty, outdated and dark. There are no amenities to speak of, the staff at the front desk were barely able to help us, and at times there was an unpleasant sewer smell wafting through the common areas of the hotel. The location is ideal, but that is really about all these hotels have going for them.

Highly Disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
Things didn't turn out like they should have. We were supposed to have a room with a double bed, but ended up with one bed in the room. The hotel said that they would send a roll-away. After three calls to the desk and still no roll-away, we gave up and my son ended up having to sleep on the floor!

Filthy Bathrooms

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Annapolis Inn was a huge disappointment. I purchased a gift certificate for my fiance for Christmas. We just returned yesterday from our overnight stay in the Calvert house. Upon arrival I had to call the front desk to let them know that there was an excessive amount of hair on the bathroom floor. I then began to notice that the bathroom had not been cleaned at all. They sent a girl up with a rag in her hand to clean the bathroom. She spent about two minutes in there. I then spoke to the manager on our way out to dinner who assured me that she would be sending in her nighttime housekeeper to clean while we were out so as not to bother us. No one entered the room while we were out. The hotel was not at all luxurious like they advertise; typical hotel furniture, old bathroom fixtures and a worn-out jacuzzi that was ridiculous looking beside the bed. Besides the fact that our bathroom had not been cleaned prior to our arrival I noticed that it had not really been deep cleaned in a long time. The walls and tile grout were filthy. It was disgusting. I had to wear flip-flops in the shower. No one had cleaned under the bed in months and the french doors behind the sofa had greasy fingerprints all over them. The worst part about it is that this was our last night of a week-long trip and we were so much looking forward to being in Annapolis. After realizing how dirty the room was I just wanted to go home.

s about all...

from A TripAdvisor Member
Our check-in went well. Good directions to the Maryland Inn were given . I chose Historic Inns mainly because of their location, but should have read previous reviews! The room was in desperate need of a face-lift and modernization. For the price we paid, I did expect 3-4 star hotel, but would have done better at a low-end Super 8. Some positives were the quick response from valet attendant and it's close proximity to everything. Our room was quiet, could not hear other guests, but could hear all the weekend pub activity till the bars closed!
Suggest staying @ Loews hotel, and taking a cab or free shuttle to historic area.

Top Local Tips for Annapolis

Enjoys dinner & drinks next door at Harry Browne's Great downstairs and outside fine dining at Harry Browne's. The upstairs bar is an excellent location for the those over 40, not into the younger bar/band scene downtown!

Best bets for dinner in Annapolis Two restaurants in Annapolis I'd highly recommend: O'Leary's (in Eastport). Best seafood in area. Take the water taxi from Annapolis Dock (walkable, but water taxi is fun). Maria's...great Itallian food. I've eaten at both several times, never disappointed.

Breakfast and the Pledge of Allegiance We asked for a breakfast recommendation and our hotel staff directed us to a little diner on the main street of Annapolis called 'Chick and Ruths'. It was everything you'd want of a diner in terms of great breakfast food with a vast assortment of options. But, the fun thing about it was that at 8:30 AM, all the diners are asked to stand and recite the 'pledge of allegiance'. (You never do forget it.) Just a fun highlight that gets you the right start for a day spent in a military town.
