Reviewed 28 July 2014

My girlfriend and I stayed for a 4 day weekend and we could not be more pleased with our stay. If you like a place with character and has that feel you wouldn't get any other place, Admiral Fell Inn is your place. The staff was great and the weekend brunch was delicious. However, the biggest draw for this place is the location. You could easily stay within two miles of the hotel and be very happy. Every shop and small restaurant or bar is a five minute walk. The food everywhere was great and reasonably priced. Needless to say, if we go back to Baltimore, we won't need to shop long for a hotel. It's a unique place to stay unlike any other hotel I have ever been and I can assure you, if you choose to stay here, you will not be disappointed. -Jason

Loved the historic factor about this hotel. Each room is named after an important figure in the area and the set up is different as well. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The wood floors made noise when you walked over them, I guess because its such a historic building. Other than that, no complaints. Food options where great for breakfast. Accessible to one of the best areas in Baltimore.

After enjoying a Sunday afternoon walking around and sampling various taverns, my husband and I decided to spend the night. The GM noticed us booking a room via Expedia and he immediately said he'd match the rate and check us right in. Great room on 1st floor facing courtyard was quite large and very quiet. Overall, a great decision to stay at this charming hotel in the middle of the action. Stop by Anastasia's which is connected to the hotel and have Luis make you a fabulous cocktail complete with a show.

We had a great experience at the Admiral Fell Inn. Our first stay there. The Fells Point area is great fun. The Inn as a perfect location to explore Fells and all of Baltimore. The Inn staff was super. Accommodated everything we needed. You will likely meet the hotel manager Mario. A great guy, and really gets it when it comes to guest service. We recommend finding the little bar downstairs. Great staff and all around fun with guests ands locals alike. A very friendly place. We recommend the Admiral Fell to anyone looking for great accommodations in a fun area.

My husband surprised me for my birthday and took me to Maryland. We stayed one night in Ocean City, after that, we were extremely happy to move to Baltimore to spend the following night at the Admiral Fell Inn. There was a delay in getting our room ready, but the front desk, valet, bartender, and the General Manager, were very helpful and took very good care of us. The hotel was beautifully appointed with period furniture and artwork. We found it, extremely clean and we felt very safe and comfortable in our room. The shower and the bed were worth staying for all by themselves! Additionally, the location of the Admiral Fell was very convenient to shopping and restaurants. We can't wait to go back!! :)

Great location, terrible hotel. The rooms are awkwardly arranged and small. The worst thing, though, are the bathrooms. The bathrooms are a disaster. I had to move the luggage rack and the coat hangers to close the closet door. And, I paid extra for a whirlpool tub. The tub was disgusting---circa 1975, so I did not want to take a bath and it did not provide the romantic extra that I intended when I paid extra.

The night we checked in, I tried to take a shower. First, I pulled a towel off of the towel bar and the entire towel bar fell off of the wall. Then, I got into the tub and positioned the handheld shower (yes, no shower head) and, when I tried to turn on the hot water, nothing came out. Then the shower pull came off in my hand. I gave up and decided to try again in the morning. The next morning, again water came out when I turned on the hot water. So, I called downstairs to ask to change rooms and was told there were no other rooms. The maintenance man came up to see if he could fix the hot water. So, he came in and re-attached the towel bar to the wall and made the hot water come out. The hot water was scalding and, even with the cold water on, it was too hot. Then, as I showered, I realized that the tub was not draining. When my companion finished his shower (we didn't want to turn off the hot water, just in case), the hot water wouldn't turn off. So, the tub was filling and the steam began to set off the smoke detector. I had to call for the repairman to come back to turn off the water, all while the smoke detector was going off. We packed our things and moved rooms, obviously.

When we got another room for the second night, the bathroom was equally small and the tub equally disgusting. The hot water did work and the tub did drain, at least. However, when I checked out, I had to request a discount for the ridiculous inconvenience of the first night. The discount offered was LESS THAN HALF of one night's stay. Given the ridiculously high rate at this hotel for Baltimore and the ridiculous evening and morning we experienced (as well as the overall crapiness of both rooms), the discount was insufficient.

I would not recommend that anyone stay in this hotel. Don't be seduced by the location or the cute exterior or lobby. The rooms are terrible and no one, under any circumstances, should rent a room with a whirlpool tub until they gut and remodel those bathrooms.

We had a large family gathering for a family wedding. We virtually took over the Admiral Fell Inn. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. They were responsive to any need. The location is very convenient - expecially since the reception was on the Spirit of Baltimore. No matter what time we were coming or going, we were greeted with warm smiles and a sense of humor which made our stay that much more pleasant.

Room Tip: Fells Point is a lively place. If you are looking for a quieter room, do not face the street.
