      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.

      New Beginnings


      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.

      Low on housekeeping, high on fat.


      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.

      Tidewater Inn


      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.

      Christmas Day. I have just come in from a walk with Bob, Shackleton and Steven (who has come East for the holidays.) The temperature is 53 degrees, unseasonably warm for this time of year. So far, it has been a mild winter-but it is even warmer in Miami (82 degrees) where we fly just two weeks from today. Three days later we fly to Barbados (82 degrees) where we ...

      I look out the bedroom window and see a thousand geese huddled on the ice on Leeds Creek; they are having a wonderful time. The snow is falling and the thermometer says 28 degrees. It is a beautiful sight, but it is our second snowfall within five days and our fifth day of below freezing temperatures and we are weary of gray skies, fur-lined boots, and icy roads. Warmer days are coming though. On February 5, we fly to Miami and from there on February 8, to Havana for a tour of ...

      ... time we "went nomadic" we had one but this time we thought we'd try a different approach - "Sell it all" and get free.

      The best parts were:

      • The realization that very little of what you have do you really need
      • Giving stuff away
      • Going through every photo and every old document and scanning them... we found our first love letters to each other and everything else. All digitized now...
