Travel Blogs from Baltimore
... and not since my back-packing trip. A chance stumble upon one of these blogs rekindled an old burned out flame to start blogging again. It was interesting to read how, as seasons past, the will of a freshly minted youth molded inside the theaters of society has changed and that which is but a faint shadow of a distant memory. Life has been blessed but there are certain regrets particularly with some humanitarian efforts i was involved with and which over ...
As the parent of a special needs kiddo with a crazy health history, I'm always on alert. And being wired as I am, with an overactive right brain and very creative imagination, I often play out worst-case-scenarios in my head, thinking that perhaps whatever I can conjure up will always be more awful than reality.
That was not the case today. Oh hell no it wasn't.
We had our first misstep in what has otherwise been pretty much a perfect trip. ...
... will probably be the last person I go to see before I leave Maryland. She's definitely the most important. I drove home that night without listening to music, something I rarely do. Sitting in the relative silence of the inside of my car, I realized why I felt so good. The hate was gone. I can let go of the anger now.

Good contacts. Tonight, Saturday, there is a dinner and dance with a cruise theme. ...

Until then, Arrivederci!

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Inner Harbor Baltimore
There are only two reasons to stay here: location and budget. Both are good, but the place is tired and run-down. You can't tell from the lobbby, which is maintained nicely. The rooms: forget it. Dirty bedspread and carpet. Tiny, cramped bathroom that needed a good scrubbing. Weird stinky smells in hallways, elevators, etc. If you're coming to Inner Harbor, pay more and stay elsewhere.
Great Hotel, Great Price
Stayed at hotel beginning of October, for a baseball game. Great location, you are close to everything. Everyone was very friendly. Rooms were clean & no smell. Perfect size for 2 people. The restaurant was a little poorly staffed but the food was good. I would highly recommend. That will now be our hotel when we travel to Baltimore.
I'll echo previous reviews that the location is great, but otherwise, this is a very mediocre hotel. Rooms are tiny, and ours had a very bad smell - perhaps mildew, I'm not sure. Bathroom was so tiny that you could barely close the door and have room to turn around. Hallway noise is terrible, as I imagine walls are very thin. Elevators are small and take forever to arrive. And there are no reasonable priced places to eat nearby, so one has to wait in a very long line for the hotel breakfast buffet which is just average.
All that said, the staff was very pleasant and they do provide free internet access, but at the $150 price we paid, this hotel is not worth it.
Better location than hotel
This hotel is 2 blocks from the harbor and for that the price can't be beat. Now what you get in the hotel is another matter. The front desk staff was awesome, but the hotel room was not too good. First room had a wet carpet in the corner and smelled of perfume as if to hide a different smell (I don't want to guess). The front desk quickly sent up another key for a room across the hall--much better, but when the hallway smelled nicer than both rooms, well, it's a bummer. Continue to hate the sink outside the bathroom--travelers need counter space!
Couldn't get the wirless broadband to connect, but they did have a business center with 2 computers available.
Again, the location is great, but unfortunately the hotel is not.
Best Days Inn I Ever Stayed In
Stayed at many horrible Days Inn before and swore I would never stay at another. Tried one time due to price and location to Camden Yards and Inner Harbor and the overall reviews on this website. Everything was very satisfactory. Rooms were very clean and neat. No smell whatsoever. Room had AC, TV, fridge and microwave. Showers were excellent and beds were comfortable. Received extra pillows and towels in a timely fashion. We didn't use the pool,it was small, but looked very clean. Only complaint was the elevators were few and very crowded. Parking is adjacent, but had to pay $11.00 for the night. Great hotel for price and location.
I booked this hotel through Hotels.com, requesting a non-smoking room. I've used Hotels.com three times now - never again. Hotels.com has that "can't guarantee that you will get the type of room you request" policy and they've lived up to that clause in the contract every time I have booked through them. So I had to settle for a smoking room - it smelled putrid. The desk clerk, who was rude, put us in this corner, adjoining room that was obviously a typical party room for conventions and weddings. The room was dirty, disgusting bed spread and sticky floor. We also got valet parked and it took them over half an hour to bring me my car. Don't do it!
Price can't be beat
Our family of four spent one night here in June. This was by far the cheapest hotel in the Inner Harbor area. Location is very convenient to the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards. Staff was very helpful. Hotel was nice enough, and worth the money. Room was very small. Probably could not have spent more than one night here without getting on each other's nerves.
Day Inn ball game deal
If your going to see the Orioles or Ravens, this is the place to be.
Cheap by Inner Harbor Standards and within a 5 min walk to the stadiums. Very Safe, and only 10 min walk to the Inner Harbor. We've stayed here a couple of times, rooms are clean, and the service has been very good. Has a SMALL outdoor pool, Don't go for this. and Parking although extra is right next door. Cheap by Inner harbor standards.
Best Days Inn
This is the "best' Days Inn my wife and I have stayed in, all the others are sub par and I do not recommend Days Inn on the whole. This one is close to the Inner Harbor via the skywalk and the staff was courteous and helpful. My wife is a neat freak and this room suited her just fine and if your looking for good Maryland blue crabs take the seaport taxi to Canton and go to BO BRooks, great crabs
Location great, little else to love
Stayed May 17 & 18, 2003. It would be hard to find a more convenient location. Short walk from Convention Center light rail stop to & from BWI. Short walk from Orioles Park & Inner Harbor. Price outragous for a very ordinary room ($160/ night) but everything else in area made it look cheap. Room had a chemical stench like plastic fumes.Would probably stay again but would look hard for options.
