Holiday Inn Solomons Conference Center and Marina
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Solomons
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Only a two night stay but a wonderful Holiday Inn we wish all of them was of this caliber. We have stayed at several across the country but none compares to the spot. We want to plan another trip and will definitely stay there.

Room was clean and comfortable; service was friendly and efficient; amenities were OK. Would not choose this as a holiday destination, but good enough for an overnight stay when visiting Southern Maryland shoreline.

We appreciate the time it took for you to post a review of your stay at the Holiday Inn Conference Center and Marina. While your review was positive, we assure you that we could meet any expectations as a holiday destination. Solomons and Southern Maryland are full of things to do and get our and play. Charter fishing on the Chesapeake Bay and Patuxent River, hunting for sharks teeth at Calvert Cliffs Park, local wineries, Calvert Marine Museum, Kayaking and Anne Marie Gardens just to name a few. Again thank you, Jeff Shepherd, General Manager

We held our daughter's wedding reception at this hotel and Shannon Schulze, the event coordinator/Director of Catering, was outstanding!!! She helped us tremendously with all the aspects of planning of the event, gave us contacts for the wedding cake and the DJ. She is a great resource and wonderful to work with. She always answered all of our questions whether we called, sent an email or stopped by the hotel. The food for the reception was delicious and we had an open bar, both of which everyone loved. The ability for all the vendors to get into the reception room the day before and the morning of the reception was especially helpful for the set up. We found the hotel staff very helpful and friendly and our stay at the hotel was very enjoyable. The setting and scenery around the hotel was very nice and it was an added bonus for folks to be able to step out of the reception room to the outdoor patio seating area. From the outdoor area you could see the outdoor pool and the marina. The bride's and groom's families had a lot of folks from out of town and it was nice to be able to have everyone be able to stay at the hotel for the weekend and spend time visiting with each other. With all of the things at Solomon's Island and the pool at the hotel there was a lot for everyone to do.

We stayed here 2 nights for a wedding. Our room wasn't made up before we left for the wedding mid afternoon despite the fact that we were out of the room for a good portion of the morning and early afternoon. We arrived back after the wedding to find that the room still wasn't made up. We had to call and barely got an apology.

We also were not given the welcome bag, provided by wedding hosts. Information about transportation to the wedding was in the bag, so we missed the bus!

We requested a room with a view and they gave us a room overlooking the pool rather than the marina.

Overall, the staff was a big disappointment. Choose another venue to host your event guests!

I would like to thank you for your recent review of your stay with us. Our entire team appreciates the feed back and any opportunity to improve. I certainly apologize for any inconvenience You experienced during your stay with us. We have very specific and detailed procedures as it relates to any gift bags handed out by our front desk team. Just last week we delivered over 150 to guests checking in for three different weddings. We have reviewed our procedures with both our sales and front desk team in an effort to assure this does not happen with any guest in the future. While our housekeeping team does their absolute best to get to all of our 326 guest rooms cleaned as soon as possible it is possible on full nights for some guest rooms to be completed in late afternoon. Again I apologize and thank you for your feedback. Jeff Shepherd, General Manager

I go to Solomons fairly regularly as I have family there and just happen to love the area. It is a great place to visit and my stays are always enjoyable due in large part to The Holiday Inn Hotel, Conference Center and Marina. The location is wonderful and the hotel is constantly being updated and well maintained. I have stayed at other hotels in the area but much prefer to stay at this one The manager, Jeffrey Shepherd and his staff are very helpful and always accomodating and make a stay at this hotel a pleasant experience. Donna who takes the reservations is also very helpful and makes the reservations process easy and uncomplicated.
The room I was in had a nice view of the marina and was very clean and comfortable. If only I could fit the bed in my suitcase and take it home with me....lol They are sooo comfortable.
Also the inhouse restaurant, Isaac's is a great place for a delicious dinner. I highly recommend the specialty of the house, "Chicken Chesapeake". It is wonderful and if you like blue crab as I do you will enjoy this dish. They also have a nice lounge and in the good weather a really neat outside cocktail area that is fun and occasionally has bands performing.
There are other places in the area to stay at but all in all for the price and the quality, you can't beat this hotel.

This hotel is a dated version of an old Holiday Inn. The hotel looks worn and services at the front desk was very good but the conference I attended there was a disaster. The air conditioning was not working well, the food service was a disaster, the actual food served was horrible, and with only one bartender in their lounge while holding a sold out conference the experience was as bad as it can get. I would recommend finding a B & B and taking advantage of the local restaurants for meals. Stay away....

I would like to thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us. We regret that you left our property feeling "you would stay away” As a conference center we certainly are used to dealing with larger groups, conferences and meetings on a daily basis. I certainly apologize that we failed to provide you a positive and comfortable experience during your stay with us. It is my hope that you will give us another opportunity to provide you the experience you deserve, I assure you we can make this happen. Again I apologize, Jeffrey D. Shepherd, General Manager.

Went for a quick overnight with hubby. Had a (limited) water view of the Marina, which was nice. A short distance away from the "Downtown" tiki bar and Calvert marina area, but a nice hotel, friendly service, and comfortable room. No free breakfast, as the website is misleading. Isaac's Restaurant was pretty good for dinner, with tables overlooking the marina. Also an outdoor bar in the courtyard pool area with live music. Would recommend for the area. Room also had refridgerator and microwave. Welcomed as a priority club with water bottle, snickers bar, and snack chips.

Room Tip: Request room with a water view
