A Room in History

The Carrollton Inn is perfectly located for access to the harbor area with shops and restaurants and close to transportation. The Charm City Circulator is a free local bus that stops across the street and accesses many of the areas that visitors might want to see. The Inn is old and elegant but the staff is young and helpful. The incuded breakfast cooked to order each morning and served in a lovely dining room was a plus.
A Hidden Gem near Baltimore Aquarium

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and we were a little worried we wouldn't like it. It turned out to be one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at!!! We stayed in "The Scholar's Room" and it was gorgeous and very clean. We loved the décor. The chocolates with a fresh rose on the bed were a nice welcoming touch. The king size four-poster bed was very comfortable. Very nice and clean bathroom with a double whirpool bathtub and shower. The location was perfect for our trip. The Baltimore Aquarium is only a few blocks away; about a 7 minute walk. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For breakfast you have a choice of it being delivered to your room, dining room downstairs or the courtyard (during nicer weather). The courtyard was directly outside our room and the traffic noise was unnoticeable. We chose to have it delivered to our room. It came piping hot and was one of best breakfasts we have ever had. The raspberry pancakes were amazing! They have free off street parking but it is at your own risk. There is also a parking garage that you can get your ticket validated at the front desk that is about 2 blocks away. Cost is $10.00 for a day unless you take your vehicle out, then you have to pay again. I forgot a personal item in the room and the staff went that extra mile and shipped it to me. We highly recommend the 1840s Carrollton Inn if your staying in Baltimore for work or pleasure.

The 1840s Carrollton Inn is clean, quiet and centrally located to Little Italy and downtown Baltimore. It is reasonably priced and feels more like a B&B with the friendly service and great breakfast. I highly recommend it.

A quick weekend trip prior to a Sunday wedding in Baltimore. Booked the Independence room 203 (room of the month)on Thursday along with (2)1hr massages. Shelby was exceptional in setting up our experience and the staff followed up with on-time accomodating service. We checked-in late Saturday and the staff helped us to set dinner reservations at La Scala - easy walk/great food/great atmosphere - highly recommend it! This is the second time we stayed @1840s -look forward to our 3rd trip! Only 1 small note Rm #203 is a GREAT room/layout,but on the corner of very busy street - atmosphere outshines the traffic noise. UPSIDE - breakfast in bed:)
Not for me...

Waited too long to book a hotel for family visiting weekend and opted us out of our usual place. I came across the Carrollton's sister hotel on TA and they were booked as well but recommend the 1840s Carrollton. There were a few rooms available and I booked the Diplomat Suite. First impressions were not good... the common areas are not well kept. I understand this hotel is directly off a fairly busy road but there is no excuse for not vacuuming on a regular basis. It looked like the stairs and lobby area hadn't been swept or vacuumed in days. As this was my first impression of course I was worried about our room, and though it was rather dusty it appeared to be clean. Then I went into the bathroom... The glass that they leave for guests that sits upturned atop a washcloth was full of "toothpaste rinse" and the washcloth was filthy. I brought it down to reception, apologies were made, and I was given what appeared to be clean replacements. The positives... the staff is really very lovely ~ very friendly and very kind. Breakfast was the highlight - delicious. The worst part was the street noise - unbearable. I mentioned this on check out and was told next time we should book a better room and if they had one available (which they did not) they would have switched us into it. This seemed an odd comment because we were in one of the highest priced rooms they had. I wouldn't tell you to avoid this Inn as many people love it - just do your due diligence to make certain its a place you'll be comfortable visiting.
