... water ice is softer than fresh. The kids and I have spent the last 5 days getting her ready for the delivery crew. They are here. The boat is fully provisioned. The generator is running. The engines are running. The boat has heat. There is no warming in the forecast. It's time for Coco to go back home were she belongs- the tropics.

Our next stop was the Annapolis Mall. We dropped our van off at the Sears Auto Center for its oil change, and then wandered the mall to fill our time. We got Kelsey's engagement ring inspected and cleaned at Jared's, and we melted into our respective massage chairs in Brookstone. The most fun was had, however, in the Lego store!
We marvelled at all of the Lego sets that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tidewater Inn Easton
We checked in for the weekend, and promptly checked out. Extremely "tired" property. And that is putting it nicely. Management is non-existant and employees do not have a clue. And that's the good news. The bad news; the guest rooms, public space and food. Don't even get me started on the food. We were fortunate enough to find a room available in St. Michaels at Perry Cabin. Yes, a fair bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Until a change in management and extensive renovations, I would not recommend the Tidewater.
Disappointing to say the least
If this place is indeed under new management, I quiver to think what it was like in the past. Staff not at all helpful, food deplorable, accommodations sparse to say the least....the bathrooms are circa 1940's. No organization whatsoever. Everthing was dirty, dirty, dirty. Nice location in the heart of Easton...but next time we'll stay in St. Michaels.
I just wanted to help out the Tidewater Inn's reviews. I noticed a lot of people have not been happy with their recent stay. The Tidewater Inn is now under new management and making major renovations. The place is looking gorgeous. I am getting married in Jan 2005, by the way the Tidewater was looking, had no intentions of booking it. After recently stopping by to see renovations I have decided to use The Gold Room as my reception hall.
Tidewater Inn - so/so
I would NOT stay at the Tidewater Inn again, unless it makes some renovations. Stayed there 18 years ago and it was beautiful and had a wonderful buffet.The room was small, the bathroom smaller, and there was no heat or air conditioning unit and the room was TOO HOT. Do yourself a favor and go into St Michaels or another town for lodging - there are much better places for the money.
A Beauty In It's Day
When you first walk in the door,you think that this will be some place special...which I'm sure it was in it's day.It was lacking in cleanliness and needs repair.It is sad to see this "beauty" going downhill.It needs more staff.The free breakfast left something to be desired.The staff that was there was very nice.
Tired Old Man
Tidewater's web-site was alluring, but the reality was disappointing.
The honeymoon suite was clean and quaint, but hard to find, since the room number wasn't listed on the sign as we departed the elevator. The lobby was dark and dismal and the staff we encountered were not friendly. The pool area is unkempt, and it's a shame since it has great potential. To get to the pool the guests must walk through the basement, passed the noisy boiler room, since all the other doors are locked. I'm sure the Tidewater was lovely in it's time, but its time has passed.
We stayed at the Tidewater Inn for a three day conference. The room was very small and the bathroom / shower was tiny - no shelf space and a 7-8 square foot shower stall. The bedspread / blankets were well worn and the dust on the window blinds seemed as old as the hotel. The doorknob came off in my hand each time I enetered the room and the hotel staff told me that they did not know how to fix it. The food served at the meeting was of limited variety (although tasty) and all high fat and high cholesterol. Typical breakfast was bacon or sausage and scrambled eggs or french toast - there were no other choices although they did fill a request for egg white omelet with only a twenty minute wait.The hotel staff was noticably absent when it came to cleaning / refreshing the meeting room for this three day meeting, although they did eventualy get around to filling our requests.All in all, I would not hold a multiple day meeting there again.
The Tidewater Inn and Conference Center
We stayed on their golf package for 3 nights in June 2003. PROS:
reasonable room rate, very friendly staff, excellent location in the
center of "historic" Easton, outdoor pool, complimentary valet parking,
decent Sunday buffet brunch. CONS: room was on the small size (and a
bit dingy), bathroom was even smaller and showing its age, no
thermostat to control A/C (although room was comfortable temp
throughout our stay). All in all, I thought the pros outweighed the
cons and I would stay here again if we were visiting Easton.
Great place for Md Eastern Shore
The Tidewater is a great place to take in the sights of the Eastern shore. The rooms are small and older but are always spotless. The hotel was built in the 40's, so you can't set your room temp. but I have never been uncomfortable. The bathrooms look old but that's part of the charm. My wife and I started to stay at the Tidewater because all the rooms in St Michael's were sold out. Since then (approx. 9 years ago) I always stay at the Tidewater. Easton (town center, not the part near rt.50) still has a southern slow pace, it's a nice quiet town and the Tidewater is right in the center.
I stayed at the Tidewater Inn in October of 2001. The rooms are small and old. The room I stayed in did not have a heating/cooling unit to adjust the room temperature. From the worn out carpet to the make shift bathrooms the Tidewater Inn needs a major renovation.
