Based in Washington DC we often spend a weekend on the Eastern Shore. Morris Inn fits the rustic environment of Oxford and has an excellent location. The rooms are OK. We had a room with a sitting area, a bedroom and a bathroom in the middle. Lots of space but somehow not very appealing. Wireless works, but not in all rooms, including ours. The Inn appears somewhat run down. I believe that I read somewhere that it was recently renovated. If so, that is not obvious. The breakfast was really nice and service good. All in all an OK experience but for the money we paid, we have had much nicer stays on the Eastern Shore. This is our first time in Oxford and we are definitely coming back to Oxford, but probably not to Morris Inn.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Once the home of Robert Morris who gained fame as "Financier of the Revolution". General and later President George Washington was a close friend and visited Robert Morris often. In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here and fell in love with our renowned crab cakes. More history is located here. Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under celebrity Chef Proprietor, Mark Salter and Ian Fleming. Enter the Inn and step back 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in the cooler months and offering casual outside dining on our Terraces and Veranda during balmy warm summers. This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service. ... more less
