“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

First time to Annapolis and we we used a B&B.com gift card. This is not your typical B&B but that is clearly pointed out on their website. The deli is an experience. We enjoyed reading the history of the family and loved the magic tricks. We walked everywhere and explored a lot of Annapolis with out having to worry about moving our car. It was hot that weekend but our very small BR was like an icebox. This is an excellent value.

Room Tip: You must be able to climb stairs.

Since we wanted to eat at Chick and Ruth's as a surprise to our grandsons, we decided that after drinking a giant shake we would not want to travel far. Thus we booked a room in the Scotlaur Inn, room 301. When you arrive you need to park in a parking garage which runs $8 / day but you get a sticker for half off. Then you must walk to the Inn with luggage and check in at a very busy "delly". You must climb steep stairs to get your room. Our room was not very clean and all of the wooden furniture had some sticky polish on it which caused anything placed on it to stick. The floor had not been vacuumed as I picked up two cherry stems. The air conditioner was not strong enough to cool the entire room and bathroom too. As stated by someone else the towels and wash clothes were dingey and very coarse. The closet contained the roll away but the doors were off the hinges so we could not retrieve the roll away therefore our youngest grandson slept on the couch cushions laid on the floor. Overall, the room did not feel clean and we were deeply disappointed. OH you must order from a set menu for breakfast which is very chintzy i.e. bagel, cream cheese, coffee or muffin, coffee, and juice. They do discount your meal if you order something else off the menu.

If you are searching for typical B&B look elsewhere and pay more. If you are you searching for clean, inexpensive room with absolutely no frills in a great location, this might be an option. This B&B is located on Main Street, only steps away from restaurants, bars, shopping and City Dock. You check in at the deli and free breakfast is included, which was the best part of the stay. We were located on the third floor (be prepared to climb up lots of stairs (approx. 18-20 per floor). Our room was very small but clean. My suggestions: bring your own towels (towels-really thin and rough and a small hand towel for floor mat) and toiletries (poor quality) and the pillows (really hard and scratchy).

The name of this place "Scotlaur Inn Bed and Breakfast" is deceiving - this clearly is not a Bed & Breakfast. It is located over a deli on the main traffic street of Annapolis, MD with check in at the cashier in the deli, none of the special bathroom amenities (tiny bar of soap?? thin towels), no comfy sitting area, no elevator (40+ stairs to 3rd floor), no cozy outside garden or porch area, breakfast was in the deli, etc. I'd call it a hotel room over a deli. I can say that the room, being right on the main street, was very quiet and the bed comfortable. Parking is in a parking garage around the corner. Overall, we were disappointed. Within a few blocks were what appeared to authentic B&B's that I would recommend checking into for a true B&B experience.

Room Tip: Find a true bed and breakfast with all amenities

OK, Scotlaur is kind of a unique place, and people will obviously divide on certain things, like if you find the check in at the crowded deli and the casual staff annoying or, as I, very welcoming, warm and loaded with personality. The rooms are small, the bathrooms are small, but they are charming, have a lot of character, and are suprisingly quiet, considering th location. Beds are comfortable. This is not a major amenities kind of place, and if you are looking for the Four Seasons, with cute toiletries and fluffy designer towels, you won't like it. But I have gone many times, and I always ended up wishing I could just move in. The deli food is great (the Patty Melt is the food of the gods). I love the friendly, homey atmosphere (I'd walk in the deli and one of the staff would yell "Hi, Chicago guy!" and the lack of pretension. The rooms are very clean - I have NEVER been bitten by bedbugs here as the poster below claims (though I have in places that cost four times as much). The location is ideal, and while the parking lot is cheap and close, you can leave your car there unless you want to poke around DC, as everything in Annapolis is walkable. This is not a luxury place, but it is a total delight. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Annapolis. Love this place.
