We had reservations at another hotel but a snow storm was scheduled to hit Baltimore and we wanted to beat the blizzard and come into town a day early. Unfortunately, our other hotel was booked so while in transit we pulled something up and booked online while driving - the ratings were DECEIVING! We arrived and immediately got the feeling we were in a bad place. "Random people" were just handing out everywhere and as I tried to check in (through a thick glass window) a drunk man came in and starting talking to the front desk clerk who simply just ignored me and explained why "He wasn't going to Denny's anymore!" When he was done, I was given the keys and we make our way to our room first stopping at the vending machine which by the way sells Bareback Condoms, right next to the Hershey's candy bars. I didn't bother getting anything from the machine and we made our way to the elevators which REEKED marijuana odor! When we arrived on our floor there were two men (in different rooms) just hanging around outside of their doors, what they were waiting on, I can only imagine. Needless to say we didn't sleep very well that night! Upon leaving we were confronted by two women who said, "You two ladies are beautiful, yeah beautiful, and we got that weed and stuff." ... So was that a proposition or solicitation and if it was, for what? We couldn't get out of there fast enough BUT they did offer a continental breakfast. We were extremely hesitant, who knows what would have been in any of it but it didn't matter ... we didn't eat ... all they had was Special K cereal, a doughnut and plain bagel. Bottom line, unless you are looking for a "room by the hour" kind of hotel, I wouldn't recommend this hotel, EVER!
