My son and I will be visiting Towson University in April. He will probably spend the night on campus with a friend but I'll need a hotel room. There is a Marriott on-campus that sounds wonderful but costs $189 a night. The other Towson hotels got terrible reviews. I would like to spend closer to $125 and be within 20 minutes of Towson. Any suggestions for a nice clean hotel?

The Sheraton Baltimore North is worth a look, although it's not much cheaper. It's on the north side of Towson from Towson U and adjacent to Goucher College. It doesn't show up on the Towson hotel lists, but the Baltimore ones.

The Sheraton Baltimore North, which is connected to the Towson Town Center (a large shopping mall), is located in Towson but is listed on here under Baltimore. It is a pretty nice hotel, but is a bit on the expensive side. You might want to try the Holiday Inn Select or even the Days Hotel in Timonium. Both are decent and affordable hotels, located about 5 miles from the university. The Embassy Suites in Hunt Valley used to be a nice place to stay, but I wish that they would renovate the hotel one of these days. From what I've heard, the place is really getting run down and could use some major repairs and a total makeover. It is a shame, as it used to be one of my favorite places to stay. I believe that the Courtyard by Marriott in Hunt Valley just completed a major renovation and might be a possibility for a place for you to stay. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
