Annapolis is one of the oldest cities in America, therefore making an effort to find a historic property to call home for a few nights seems like the right thing to do. We stayed at the Historic Inns of Annapolis and couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay.
The location was great! There are three main properties associated with the hotel, each located in the heart of Annapolis and within a few minute walk from each other. Parking was a little more complicated as all the free spots were taken up. Over the weekend, they suggest a free parking garage about a 10 min walk from our hotel. To us, this wasn’t really a big deal because we knew being in an older part of town, parking wasn’t going to be plentiful. If you’re arriving via any other mode of transportation, you may need a Taxi or an Uber to drop you off. The nearest bus stop is College Avenue & Bladen St.
We were visiting over the 4th of July weekend, so prices may have been slightly inflated, but you should expect to pay an average of $100 to $200 per night
Quality of Sleep:
We got a first floor and the floor above us was a bit creaky, but other than that, the bed was super comfy! You’re going to get a great night’s sleep, and If you can get an upper level room… even better!
I really liked all the decorative touches the Historic Inns of Annapolis put into their rooms. Although a smaller room, it was tidy and cozy with enough space to put our bags.
The bathroom was small, but considering you’re in an older building, the odd set up came with the territory. The shower worked well, everything was bright and clean, they provided the usual toiletries, we had no issues!
This is an old hotel, so you’re not going to get a soundproof room, but it wasn’t noisy. As noted above, the ceiling was a bit creaky but during a busy time of year we weren’t bothered too much. People walking by the hallway may make some noise, but again, this isn’t a constant.
The room had a flat screen TV and cable, so if you’re needing some entertainment late at night while munching on snacks in bed, this room is fully equipped to handle your modern expectations.
The staff was extremely helpful, especially when explaining how and where to park. Without them, I think we would have been driving around in circles. The front desk was friendly and always willing to help.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Historic Inns of Annapolis. If we were to come back to Annapolis, we would stay again. Let us know if you’re planning on visiting Annapolis and if you’re considering the Historic Inns of Annapolis to call home for a few nights!
