THE Annapolis Experience

5 on December 19, 2015

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Scotlaur Inn. Perfect spot to experience the heart of Annapolis. Walking distance to everything - park the car and walk. The owners and staff are outstanding and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. Having the famous Chic & Ruth's down stars with complimentary breakfast is a bonus. Highly recommend. Will stay again in the future. Bill & Faith Williston, USNA '83

This is the second time that I stayed at the Scotlaur Bed and Breakfast. Located right in the heart of Annapolis and right above a unbelievably good deli the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Always a great vibe and great experience at the Scotlaur!!! Paula J. Betz


DON'T WASTE TIME LOOKING FOR BETTER, THIS IS EXCEPTIONAL

AS A TRAVEL AGENT I HAVE BEEN MANY PLACES IN M Y LIFETIME. SCOTLAUR INN HAS OLD WORLD CHARM, WHAT ONE WOULD WANT FROM AN INN IN MARYLAND. THE OWNER, TED, IS VERY MUCH A WONDERFUL HOST, AS ARE ALL HIS EMPLOYEES. YOU WILL NOT FIND ANYTHING MORE CLEAN, FRIENDLY, GREAT FOOD, VERY COMFORTABLE BEDS, THE PRICE IS UNBEATABLE, ATMOSPHERE ABOUNDS. THE INN IS QUIET, WALK DOWNSTAIRS TO BREAKFAST, LUNCH , DINNER. THE FOOD IS A BARGAIN IN PRICE AND QUALITY. EVEN IN THE DEAD OF WINTER THIS PLACE IS THE PERFECT LOCATION, QUALITY, PRICE.


Right on Main Street

4.8 on June 05, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay at the Scotlaur Inn. I wasn't expecting it to be located where it was on Main Street, or above the Delly. I think that was my fault, though, and not because the information wasn't available to me. I had been looking at several places to stay online and got the images mixed up in my head. In spite of that, I found the Scotlaur Inn to be exceptional in service, friendliness, and charm. The people were kind and helpful and fun. The room was fantastic, clean, and had all the essentials. The breakfast was wonderful, delicious, and numerous options were available. Plus you could add on to whatever meal you chose for additional cost. The location was perfect: right in the heart of the shops and restaurants, and close to the water. Everything was easy to walk to. My biggest complaint would have to be parking. There are meters, but only for 2 hours, and there is a parking garage, but it's expensive! The Inn does give you a validation ticket, which gives you half off the total, but it's still pricey. Overall, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others as well.


Lamentable

Room was so small that we needed to move out to open our suitcases. Internet doesn't work at all during our stay. The guy in charge was........better not say. and photos doesn't match what we found. Something to forget about.


One of a Kind.

The Scotlaur Inn is located above the locally celebrated Chick & Ruth's Delly - a hole-in-the-wall-style eatery with character that does not ever quit. The rooms are clean and respectable, and at 8:30 AM (9:30 on SA & SU), all activity stops in the Delly, so that all those inside can pronounce the Pledge of Allegiance. This was the highlight of my trip to Annapolis. Don't miss it. David Larousse


Overnight in Annapolis

3.4 on May 23, 2012

My boyfriend and I decided to stay at the Scotlaur Inn for the night to enjoy Annapolis on our way to my son's wedding in Ocean City. The rooms were adequate and clean and the decor was what I expected for the value. Chick & Ruth's Diner was our choice for breakfast and the selections where what you would expect from a diner. If we travel to Annapolis again, we would entertain staying here again simply for the value.


Enjoyed the stay

We have been to the boat shows for 30 years, but this was our first visit to the Scotlaur Inn.I own a business and most people want too much for their money, especially in tough times.I am a big man and walking up the stairs was a little tough and our room was small, with a double bed and a small bathroom. I found out that some of the rooms are larger. We had some of our friends with us and their room was small, but the rooms were clean. The best part is the people are so friendly and the service is great, especially having breakfast at Chick and Ruths downstairs. Chuck and Stewart were the best and I would go back just to enjoy the conversation with those guys. The bottom line is spend $ 140.00 night at the Scotlaur for the Boat show or go to the Marriott down the street if you can get a reservation for $ 485.00 per night. we will come again. Thanks to the great people


Charming, great value!

We loved the quirky NYC Style Deli/Diner and the gracious owner/host, Uncle Teddy. The room was small, but comfortable, traditional and very clean. The "delly" food was excellent. The location, outstanding for downtown Annapolis. Only downside: bad cable TV service. Excellent value. Will visit again.


Breakfast tells all

2.2 on February 14, 2011

Listen, I own a buisness so I am not going to completly rip this place. The bottom line is the room is very small, the bath towels were 50 year old hand towels, and a place famous for huge portions of food (Man Vs. Food was taped here) has a special menu on the back for guests, Two baby eggs and a piece of toast, half a bagel and some margarine, 2 bisquick pancakes no meat no nothing. The breakfast was pathetic. Special 5 oz juice glasses.

Innkeeper Response
I am sorry & don't know what to say. Our guest can see the size of rooms on our web site, I take the pictures my self and just what you see, maybe not the biggest but nice, just like size on the web site. They are clean and fresh looking. The towels are nice from a linen service and not old!!! We never serve 1 slice of toast or 1/2 a bagel. Our breakfast menu for inn guest is listed on our website and the guest are shown the menu when checking in. You have a choice. The pancakes are ALWAYS 3 large ones, The juice in is a 8 oz glass, (we don't even have a 5 oz glass). We use large eggs. I am don't know why this guest is getting their information from. Our restaurant is where you have breakfast and you I am sorry if someone was thinking they were going to get a 6 pound milk shake or 1.5 pound sandwich as seen on our show Man vs Food. If a guest wants large platters, of course there is an up charge. This is mentioned when they check in. Take a look at our web site and it shows, what you see is just what is given. Nice conformable rooms, Clean, your choice of breakfast, 2 eggs, order of toast, Fried potatoes, or Pancakes, juice & coffee, or muffins with juice & coffee. All of which is listed. Not a Colossal Sandwich or 1/2 pound Jumbo Lump Crab Cake or other items. I am sorry this person is unhappy, The information they put down is just not correct... I wish they would have told me of their problems. No guest complained to me about the things that were written here. Not Fair...
