My daughter and I took a chance on this little B&B which was 1/3rd the price of the historic hotel where our family reunion was held. We were not disappointed. We were just a few blocks from the reunion hotel and right in the middle of all the action and restaurants and shops on Main Street. The area was safe with lots of people out at all times. Very Old School diner below, but our room was very quiet, being in the middle of the historic building. Modern, clean room with a big window, but small. No chair, no closet, no microwave, refrigerator, or coffee maker, but then, we expected that. The sink is in the room. Steep stairs, not for mobility impaired. The parking garage behind is under construction. The bed was comfortable, but when getting in or out, it squeaked like a banshee. Good hot water, and good heating and air. Very nice for the location. We ate at several restaurants just outside our door, and the food was fantastic!

Small room, no microwave, refrigerator or coffee maker. Breakfast was advertised as included and then we were given a bill (which was rescinded when we complained). Parking voucher for a garage three blocks away.... not staying there again!

The room was charming. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location in downtown Annapolis. Breakfast was delicious as always. Christian (the manager) was very helpful even though we arrived at a very busy time of day.

Designed for couples looking for perfect location. You are walking distance to everything. Yes rooms are small, but bed is comfy and room is clean. Food outstanding. Expect lot of steps in narrow hallway. Very convenient with everything you need.

We really enjoyed our 3 days there. We were in room 201, and were able to look at all of the activity on the street below. Of course, on Saturday nights, it gets really wild in Annapolis , so it does get a little noisy in the room. Our room was small, but clean and nicely decorated. The breakfasts were great - in fact we ended up eating all of our meals downstairs because the portions were plentiful and the variety was great. You do have to pay for parking in the parking garage behind the building, but considering that parking is at such a premium in Annapolis, what we paid was fine. The B&B gives you a coupon to get the parking half price. No complaints at all. It was our second time staying there. Oh, and you are walking distance to the Naval Academy and the marina. What's not to like?

We stayed with you after having a week’s worth of daily meals at the restaurant. We were in Annapolis a couple of months ago, to visit our daughter at USNA. There were so many meals we wanted to try that we kept on coming in for dinner every day. Well, that wasn’t enough. We decided it would be much easier and convenient to stay at the ScotLaur. We stayed with you last week and again, we ate there for the “included breakfast” AND we had four of our five dinners at the restaurant. I think we could stay there every time and not go through all the meals offered on the menu! The hotel stay was phenomenal. It was comfortable, quaint, quiet, convenient, reasonable, and clean. We made the reservations about six months ago to ensure our stay during several major events occurring at USNA, which we were attending. The hotel confirmed our reservations a couple of weeks prior and the night before, to make sure we were set and didn’t need anything additional at the last minute. They were totally on top of it. The room was small but not overly uncomfortable. There were two of us with our daughter staying with us for one night. The double bed was fine. The room was wallpapered and decorated with an Amish motif. It even included a stuffed animal on the bed. The bed linens and towels were clean. That was the main factor we expected. There were sundries available but we brought our own so we didn’t use them. There was a clothes chest with plenty of drawers for storage. No place to hang dresses, suits, or anything you don’t want wrinkled. You’ll have to hang over the door. The sunlight was fine as the window faced a backside porch which led to the back of the building and parking structure. Two lamps, one on each of the nightstands, which also had drawers. There was a small stack of books available in the room. Bring your own book. There was an alarm clock, if needed. The sink was within the suite as opposed to being with the shower and toilet. The underside of the sink had plenty of storage, including an iron in case you needed it. There was a wicker storage bin filled with blankets and fresh sheets. We took those out and used it as a laundry basket. Not all places are perfect of course. I’d be lying if I told you that the shower was…well…really, really tiny. So tiny that if you bent over to try and scrub your heels, your head would hit the wall as you bent down. The door of the bathroom must be closed in order to open the shower door. They swing in the same direction. Water pressure and temperature were fine. Toilet was fine. There was a flat screen TV but we didn't have time to watch it. The internet was great and free WiFi. Carpeting was not new but was clean. We requested a “cot” for our daughter’s one-night overnight. We were provided with a plastic twin mattress that was placed on the carpet next to us. We were forewarned that the room would be nearly impossible to move around with that mattress on the floor. Indeed, it was true. However, we didn’t mind. Better than not having the opportunity to have her stay with us. As expected, she was glad it was only for one night. The corridors inside the Inn were familial. It felt as though you were in your own home, dating you back to the early 70s. Photos of the original owners, and his family were hanging on the walls throughout. There were two levels of rooms. We stayed on the first level. I felt safe and secure as a key was needed to come into the building from the restaurant. The Inn sits in the middle of downtown Annapolis so there is no need for transportation. The Academy is approximately a quarter of a mile from the Inn. The only reason we rented a car was because we needed to get to and from the Inn to the airport. It was less expensive than doing an Uber. The downside was that the parking fee adjacent to the hotel charges $20/daily. The Inn reimburses you $10 for the day. That’s still $10 a day for parking even if you don’t use it. If you go in/out more than once, it becomes more expensive. We went to the mall a couple of times to get essentials and the going in and out, added up to our bill. We’d plan our trips better next time. Hands down, the experience and everything about the stay at ScotLaur is recommended. The only thing that didn’t make sense was the parking. There is street parking but it is hourly. Then again, it Is not any different than any other touristy city. That’s just a fact to deal with. Looking forward and already booking our next stay for the beginning of the year. We visit every other month and this will be our new destination. To us, we love it. It makes us feel like we’re at home.

Friendly staff, rooms are small, but clean and functional, bed was comfortable - should you forget to pack something, they are willing to supply it for you - even a toothbrush!! Sunny rooms, but our view was of a roof top/parking garage. Great location - no need to move your car once you park. Short walk to the water. They offer 1/2 price off your parking at the parking lot within walking distance to the hotel.

Because of our late flight they were really nice and allowed us to check in late. As you read other reviews, you can tell that the rooms are above the Deli. When you are in the rooms there is no noise or food smell coming upstairs. Our room was small but very cosy and had everything that was needed. Very pretty area around the B&B. The Deli has the best food and the portions are fit for a king. We will be staying here again when we are in the area.

I did not know the Scotlaur Inn Bed & Breakfast was connected to Chick and Ruth's Delly run by the same family, until I called the day of my reservation to ask for directions. A restaurant worker answered the phone saying "Chick and Ruth's Delly." At first I thought it was a wrong number. The b&b occupies the upstairs two floors of the building while the restaurant is street-side. Check-in was at the restaurant cashier's counter. I was given an all-in-one key to the inn's front door, my room, and back staircase and then shown to my room. That was the last I saw of any inn "staff" aside from the many family photos going up the stairs to the rooms. The attractive, colorfully painted balconies/fire escapes which grace the inn's photo on its web site are actually at the back of the inn and double as a second exit-entrance. Guest access to the inn is actually at the front of the building by a door to the right of the Delly (not pictured on the web site). Personally I feel it would be better to explain these eccentricities to potential guests. Given that the inn is a bnb, breakfast at the Delly is included, but one must choose from the standard menu. I sat at the counter and watched all the kitchen activity which was fun. The inn is on a central street for shopping, restaurants, and strolling, while the marina and night life are steps away. If you enjoy all the funky "touches" I've described above and like Victorian floral, wallpapered rooms, this is definitely the place for you! If not, try one of the chain hotels on the outskirts of the city of Annapolis.
