Horrendous. We spent one night there last night. We went to see a concert @ Meyerhoff and it was nice & cool outside, about 70. BUT when we got into our room, it was 80 degrees with humidity & they had a large white fan blowing on the table next to the bed (???). I went to use the bathroom and water dripped on my head & back. I look up and water is dripping from the light fixture and my husband holds a towel over my head !!! We then stick it out for the night, turn up the AC and it turns out the condensation is what is dripping from the ceiling in the bathroom as well as from the vent on the wall outside of the bathroom. We woke to a bathroom soaked with water that leaks into the carpet in the room -- ughh. The mattress on the bed is about 20 yrs old as well. And there was a beer can in the waste basket. NIGHTMARE, don't stay there !! AND entry into the the B&B is a nightmare. They give you a code to get in, but there are two sets of doors. The first set of doors were locked - so we thought --I called and no one answers, you can only leave a message!! It turns out the humidity swollen the doors and my husband finally pushed the door open but we thought we were locked out. There isn't a restaurant - the restaurant is now an Indian restaurant, serving kabobs, etc. We did have dinner there and it was good but it isn't connected to the B&B, but when I called, it sounded like it was. I said can we get dinner, yes, just go downstairs, there are kabobs, etc...I feel like we were robbed. Wifi: They say they have Wifi, and we followed the instructions, but it didn't work. Just a nightmare. Awful. Don't do it. 4 stars is from 2 years ago. These are new owners and they should never own a B&B.
Wonderful inn in downtown.

We came here to attend the long awaited wedding of our dear family friends. It was a beautiful and memorable event that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. It was also our first time in Baltimore, and we had the best time including our stay at this historical inn. It was the perfect location because the reception ceremony was also in the downtown area. We appreciate the complimentary room upgrade to the suite. It was all we could have asked for besides having to take a cab elsewhere for errands. Took lots of pictures to add to our album. Wonderful inn and room in downtown Baltimore.
More benefits and budget friendly.

This hotel was a great place to rest my head, and got more benefits for my money. Believe me, after reading some of the reviews, Abacrombie Inn was the last place I wanted to go to, but I just couldn't afford to stay in the high priced hotels in the area. I usually play it safe with Choice Hotel chains whenever I travel, and stay away from independently owned properties. I admit taking a crazy risk booking here but it actually paid off for me. Simply stating, the accommodation was within my budget, clean room, superb location (safe/quiet), and parking. There wasn’t much going on around the neighborhood, but I got a chance to hang out at a bar a few blocks away. Two thumbs up.
Decent room but no elevator!

We spent a night here on a busy Saturday this month, so it seemed. I booked a room several weeks ago, and specifically requested a room closest to the lobby because my girlfriend has a bad ankle. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and we ended up taking a hike all the way up to the 4th floor with no elevator! Most hotels these days at least have an elevator but Abacrombie doesn't. They apparently were sold out of rooms and couldn't make any move arrangements for us which is a shame. It was pretty upsetting to go through, but we got a decent, clean room if anything can make up for our discomfort. It had lots of space and a sitting area with a comfortable sofa. The front desk manager was nice enough to give us a discount to our room bill.
Very lovely inn!

My husband and I run a family catering business together, and recently had an appointment with a client in Baltimore city. We made walkin reservations at the hotel after wrapping up our work that evening and trying very hard to find Abacrombie Inn. We got lost a few times after missing a turn here and there, but the staff was very patient in helping us find our way around and welcoming us in to our room. Not bad at all! Parking and location were the main reasons we agreed to book here but the room was very beautiful and cozy. I spent some quality time in the lobby downstairs to read magazines and relax since it was nice and quiet. You couldn't even hear a pin drop. We were served a light breakfast by someone claiming to be the manager the following morning before signing out. We left very pleased with our experience, and would love to come back if we get another opportunity.
