our second stay at a wonderful facility in a great location. everything about it is top notch and breakfast choices are great, whether partaking downstairs or in the privacy of your spectacular room. only problem we experienced, both times, is that the whirlpool tubs did not function. they are basically oversized bath tubs. that is fine, but we were lured into registering (at a premium price) specifically because we go our of our way to find rooms with fitted tubs - not an easy find. so, if you are looking for that elusive jetted tub in baltimore, this might not be the place for you.
My stay at 1840s Carrollton Inn was by far the best B&B to date. The rooms are beautiful, classic and the whirlpool tubs in their chic bathrooms are just a lot more packed into the reasonably priced (we made use of one of their many frequent specials!) What made this place really stand out compared to other spots was their service. Not once did any of the staff make me feel like it was a business, or that I was their client. They made it my home away from home. I would definitely stay there again! Highly recommended!
As a long time B&B guest/traveler, I have learned to moderate my expectations when making on-line reservations. I have probably stayed in 20-25 different hotel/motel/B&B's in each of the past 20 years. I would like to express my thanks and respect to the owners and staff of the 1840s Carrollton Inn. It is 5 star in every respect. After returning from Italy, and staying at $500 - $700 per night 5 stars over a period of two weeks, I was so, so pleasantly surprised this weekend by Carrollton's value and features that I thought I should let others know.
My wife and I stayed at Wayside in on December 30, checked out on New Year's Eve, had a great time. The owner David is a great host, the Inn has every amenity in your room you could you could hope for...the fresh made coffee machine conveniently located for guess has seemingly unlimited flavors. Great creative breakfast and the luxury of staying in a 200+ year old home/Inn, RBeasley Silver Spring MD
We arrived for an impromptu holiday getaway between visits to family. David, the proprietor welcomed us warmly after our rush hour commute. There were even cookies waiting and he upgraded our room since it was Christmas. The jacuzzi was exactly what we needed, as was sitting on the couch in the common area in front of the fire to relax before dinner. Soft music, beautiful lighting, period furniture. It was like stepping back in time, but also having great wireless! The breakfast was amazing and we were encouraged to express any food aversions, so I think anyone needing a special menu would be in for a treat. I would recommend this b&b to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. It's also 2 easy miles from downtown where you can eat delicious food and buy some nice wine for your room.
We recently stayed for two nights at The Wayside Inn to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Dave is a wonderful, cordial host, and everything was simply outstanding including the breakfast. Of the many B & B's we have visited, this one ranks #1. Everything was exactly what one would expect from an inn on both the Select Registry and in the Diamond Collection of BedandBreakfast.com. We hope to make many joyous returns. Ron & Karen Parker/Moorestown, NJ
We just stayed for one night, but we had a really nice time and really enjoyed the beautiful room. Everything was very clean and up to date. We didn't eat the meals there, but the breakfast spread looked very appetizing.
This was our first time visiting a bed and breakfast and it exceeded our expectations. The house was beautiful, the room quaint and charming, and the service excellent. Our favorite part was the amazingly comfortable sheets! Will definitely be recommending to friends and family.
Our stay at the Wayside Inn Bed & Breakfast was memorable and fun--a beautiful and stately home, great location just a few minutes from historic Ellicott City and all its wonderful amenities, great breakfasts, and very congenial hosts.
Thank you for everything! Terrific stay. Room was very clean and comfy. Great location close to baltimore, dc and fredrick. Historic charm meets comforts of today. NAlso very quiet and relaxing too.
We were able to stay just one overnight at this lovely Bed and Breakfast. It is a lovely home, beautifully decorated and well kept. The owners were wonderful hosts and breakfast was delicious. David and Susan went out of their way to accommodate our late arrival, which we truly appreciated.
We went for an anniversary getaway. The family that runs this is still running strong a couple of decades after it was built, but the place needs some upkeep. Our room needed spackle and paint in a few places, and there was a picture missing from one wall (hooks there, picture missing). The TV should have been mounted or at least the wires should have been hidden. Overall it's looking a little run down. A fairly small investment in spiffing it up would derive significant benefits. I was surprised by how tight the room was, tho. I should have read the description better - cozy is right! That said, we pretty much spent the whole day lounging in bed, so it didn't really matter. Would have been nice if there were a way to bring a hot breakfast up to our room. The walls are a little thinner than I'd like (though listening our very vocal neighbor was quite titillating, and we learned that the restaurant we had planned to attend had no reservations available - saved us a call!). All in all a nice place and convenient location but not a place we loved so much we want to return to it again.
I happened upon this marvelous B&B while searching for a Baltimore hotel. Everything about our stay was perfect. The Inn is magnificently decorated in true 1800s style. Included was a gourmet breakfast served in the exquisite dining room. The staff were simply amazing! Actually, everything about the Inn was amazing
You absolutely cannot do better for the Inner Harbor area than this Victorian Inn with its adjacent lot for free parking (or garage lot for $10/night) and abundant, delicious breakfast. We took the suite with sitting room and fireplace; the heavy Victorian furnishings are not to our taste, but it was quiet, with a marble bathroom and view of the garden/patio. You are greeted with a rose and chocolates, plus a fridge with soda and water and a microwave with popcorn. We took breakfast in our suite and it was delivered on time exactly as ordered; after that, we didn't need lunch. The staff us friendly and helpful, but housekeeping could use an upgrade. However, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else for Inner Harbor, Baltimore.
This inn is BEAUTIFUL upon driving up. Walking in, we were immediately greeted, checked in, given our keys and had a tour of the common areas. The receptionist then walked us to our room and gave us all of the information we needed. She was very informative and friendly. The room was great. We stayed in the R suite. You walk into a small kitchenette with a tall breakfast table. Great for more extended stays. Then, the room itself seemed a little small, but this may have just been because of the king-sized bed. (Which was also AMAZING.) I wish the decorations had more a personal touch, it just seemed mish-moshed and felt a little more like a hotel than an inn. Then we went into the bathroom. This was HUGE! VERY tall ceilings, very well decorated. The jacuzzi tub was amazing. The bathroom was surprising and it definitely MADE the room. (Just wish the rest of it was as nice/well put-together.) We wound up going into Baltimore for a bit. This was also a great location - it only took about 30 min to get into the city. Good to be away from it, but still close enough. On the way out, we stopped by the snack table - which was well stocked with vegetables, dips, and cookies. As well as the coffee/tea bar, which had plenty of choices. This was a nice touch. The sleep on this king bed was great. Onto the food: The chef was very warm and welcoming. She immediately took our orders (from a surprisingly sizable menu). There was also a counter with pastries, fruits, yogurt, coffee, etc. So we grabbed a few little things while waiting - which also took no time at all. And the food was GREAT. When we checked out, we had a different receptionist who was also very friendly. She asked about our stay and welcomed us to please come back. We certainly will! Overall, this was an AMAZING stay at a GREAT inn. It was certainly worth all its value! Thank you so much for this experience!
The Wayside Inn is a historic home in Ellicot City, MD that offers tons of history, unfortunately unless you read about it the Innkeeper will only give you a very brief summary. The Inn offers five unique and beautiful rooms, which feature cable tv and comfortable bedding. As expected in a home this age, the floors and step squeak, but this adds to charm. We stayed in the Pierpoint Suite, which is the original master bedroom of the home and offers a comfortable sitting room and large bathroom with two person jetted shower. The bed is a bit high, but a step stool is provided. The first floor is beautiful, with the exception of the kitchen which the Innkeepers have some personal belongings. There are a few minor maintenance issues. With a few hours of work, and some additional hospitality training this Inn could be the gem of Ellicot City.
My husband & I celebrated our anniversary. The romance package was awesome. They did a great job with the set up while we were out for dinner. Breakfast was fabulous. Will return soon! Thank you.
Wonderful B&B and this was my second visit. Even with the renovations not being completed in my suite, my stay was worth it. Thank you Sabrina and all other staff for making this stay extra great. Will be back soon for a more luxurious suite.
Discovered this B&B "around the corner" from my sister's place. The staff is exceptionally helpful and courteous, and my room - which was one of their small ones - was spacious and well-equipped. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. Lovely common areas indoors and out. Breakfast offerings are generous - my only comment is that I would have preferred more health-conscious options (yogurt without added sugar, whole grain breads,etc.)
Spent 2 nights in the Independence Suite for my wife and I's tenth anniversary. Simply put, an amazing place. I upped for the romance package, and it did not disappoint! I even worked it with staff for them to implement the package within our room while we were out to dinner, and they did! Staff were great and accommodating, and breakfast was superb. A great location to the inner harbor (walking distance to everything), and lots of great restaurants around. Will gladly stay there again! One minor complaint is there was a touch of excessive noise coming into the room from outside at night, but no more than expected for being in the middle of the city!
Stayed 2 nights while visiting Grandaughter at GW university in DC. Room was clean staff and cook were GREAT. Room could be much better with a little maintenance. ( staff informed us that a maintenance person had just been hired to address these problems)
This was the perfect place for my wife and I to enjoy our week vacation. Columbia is 30 minutes from Baltimore which is close enough to enjoy the sites but far enough away to escape the high living costs. We stayed here during the week (Monday-Thursday) and found our suite to be very affordable and very comfortable (tempur-pedic beds!). The made to order breakfast was the butter cream frosting on the cake. Truly an "over and above" service that we will definitely take advantage again. Highly recommended. I also wanted to note that it rained Thursday so we decided to stay in and read in the library... cabin fever? heck no! Thank you David and Cynthia for a wonderful stay.
