Mount Vernon Hotel
Travel Blogs from Baltimore
The day started with rain but as we arrived in Baltimore the skies were clear! Planned on going to an old school Crab shack outside of Baltimore. Found Bill's Terrace online.. big hit with the locals. We arrived at Bill's with a big appetite, the waitress informed us they had Large crabs available for 58$ a dozen..that would be enough to start us …
... he went to work. It lasted 80 minutes and did hurt but you kind of got into the groove of it after awhile. That's not to say I wasn't happy when it was over. I had no breaks or breathers and didn't check on progress, though you can sort of guesstimate the latter by where he is working on your body. Much like when I ride my bike up hills it I was very much of the mindset of 'you can rest at the top'. Afterwards it feels pretty tender, and hurts the most on top of ...

organize their days better and have less stress, build loving relationships, and pursue their passions. He was about to wed Richele, a female health coach. Such a union would make them invincible.

True Crime, Adventure, Fiction, Spirituality, Philosophy, Education, Cultural Studies, etc. My suitcase bulged with the girth of thirty or so of my highly-prized books, and wouldn't zip up completely. Satisfied with the books that I had picked, I donated the remainder to Baltimore's local book exchange.

Historical Traveler Reviews Mount Vernon Hotel Baltimore
Do not stay here!
A friend and I came to town to stay one night and attend an Oriole's game. The hotel did not have my reservation, checked us into a dirty room and then gave us a room that did not have a working bathtub/shower! The last item was not discovered until the morning. The rooms are old, dirty and hot. The air never changed the room temperature and the windows are keylocked shut. The staff never apologized for any of the problems. The staff told us to take the wrong lite rail, thank goodness we discovered this before we got on the train.
DO NOT STAY HERE!
Get what you pay for
Well what do you expect for <$60/night? I had a pleasant stay in this hotel for two nights. It is about a ten minute walk from the convention center but as Baltimore is so safe it is worth it to see some of the city that is NOT the Inner Harbor.
The staff were helpful at all times with taxis and directions.
I do not reccomend the coffee in the morning and the breakfast continental etc. was not good. What is it with these places that think the only preserves we like are grape jelly and mixed fruit?
While it did not have high speed internet access I was able to piggy back on a local business line for some of my stay. Would I stay here again? For this price, yeah sure!
Below Hygienic standards
It was highly disappointing. The room had a stink, the air conditioning didnt function, the evening staff was rude and had attitude. It was totally sub standard and the quality was disgraceful.
When You Went To The Best Inn...
You should have chosen to settle in at the Best Inn. We have stayed there at least 6 times in the past three years, and received excellent service, a CLEAN room and QUIET! We've stayed downtown a number of times and been disappointed. Best Inn delivers comfort at an inexpensive daily rate. Next time you visit Baltimore, book Best Inn. You will save money and enjoy your stay. Promise.
From the moment I walked in the door, I knew this lodging event would be an experience. A grand old dame of a hotel, perhaps? In need of cosmetic sugergy----lots of it. One of two elevators of the nine story building stopped working almost immediately making for an exceedingly long wait. Being reasonably fit, I took to the stairs to go down and up. However, there were many patrons for whom the stairs were not on option. While waiting for the elevator, one of the housekeepers joined me for the wait and mumbled under her breath, "oh, not again" and just shook her head
I just wanted to say that I had the best time here in Baltimore, and it was because of the Mount Vernon Hotel. The rooms were ok, but the best part was the staff. I drove in from Philly with a few buddies to check out Camden Yards, and we checked in after one of the night games. The girls who work there are all hot, college chicks who live in the area. Every night they were up for partying in our room with us. I probably shouldn't say anymore, but I recommend this hotel highly!
Ruining the Reputation of Baltimore
My family and I decided to take a trip to Baltimore (my first time there). What an experience with the hotel from the moment we checked in. When we went up to our room we decided to look out the window at some teenagers marching when we turned around there was blood all over the blinds. I work in the health field and immediately called the front desk and asked to speak to the manager. He refused to see us face to face and the problems seemed to be never ending. After looking in the drawer of a night stand for the bible we found some marijuana in the drawer. I obviously was not pleased as my 4 year old son was also standing there. We were given a hard time but managed to get another room. Do not stay at the Mount Vernon Hotel. Totally bad experience.
Functional but dreary hotel
We stayed here to celebrate a birthday and wanted to go the cheap route. The room was a bargain close to downtown, but we got what we paid for: a clean place to sleep.
The hotel room seemed clean enough. The place hasn't been updated or upgraded in a long time from what I can tell.
Continental breakfast was a sad affair. Lots of danish in plastic bags.
There seems to be some sort of college cooperative agreement here b/c there was a student lounge on the 1st floor and a lot of college-age comings and goings.
The staff was apathetic and slow on both check in and check out.
Basically, if you are looking to save $, it's a good price and a clean room. If you want a "nice" hotel, this isn't it. Spend more.
Don't Stay Here
We picked this hotel because it earned four stars on Hotels. It would be four stars ... in Fallujah, perhaps or maybe Kabul.
The first room they showed us had no lights. We would have had to dress by the light of the TV. There was a toilet sitting in the hallway and the whole floor had the atmosphere of a jail.
When we complained, we got another room that had lights, but smelled like a moldy towl and had a torn and stained carpet.
Even though we prepaid for our room, we left and stayed at a Holiday Inn several miles away. It cost us double, but it was worth it.
