“Nice hotel in Cambridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2011

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge for one night in October. My friend and I wanted to experience the eastern shore of Maryland before heading on to Washington DC and found the Holiday Inn Express met our needs. In fact, the hotel and the rooms were great - large, clean with friendly staff. It was just a shame that it was on the main highway - we would have preferred to be within walking distance of central Cambridge instead of next to the strip malls.

However, it was a short drive into Cambridge and there are beautiful roads to go exploring on nearby to see the beautiful eastern shore. I would not hesitate to stay here again if stopping in Cambridge.

To whom it may concern,
Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge, Md is by far the most welcoming family oriented, well accommodating hotel in the city. I frequent the eastern shore quite a bit since majority of my family & friends reside there. I've stayed at two other major hotels in the area (we won't mention any names) and had nothing but issues that were addressed with negative attitude. Ms. Pauline, Ms. Nakia S, Ms. Kia J, Ms. Sandy & Ms. Angie have always went out of their way to make sure my stay is more then comfortable and stress free. In no way did anyone ask me to write a review but great customer service doesnt exist anymore, so I figured I would share with the rest of the consumers. If your every planning a trip on the eastern shore. Make sure you stop by Holiday Inn Express of Cambridge and enjoy the warms smiles of Chuck's team. They'll take care of you.. Thanks again everyone.

Room Tip: Ms. Sandy's breakfast goes fast so get up early.....smile...I just always enjoy my stay.

Location-- On the main highway in Cambridge near several strip malls that include stores like Walmart and Food Lion and fast food galore. About a 5 minute drive to downtown Cambridge and 20 minutes to the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge. Condition-- Clean and well maintained. Rooms-- Very clean with both microwave and fridge, but are otherwise very basic with no updates. Mattresses are barely adequate, with inconsistent firmness. Breakfast-- Basic buffet with powdered eggs, bacon, cereals, yogurt, breads, etc. Service-- Efficient, but seemed disinterested. The front desk staff moved me to another room with no comment, apology or concern about my bad night. The staff began cleaning up breakfast early although guests were still arriving to eat. Overall--Overpriced due to lack of updates or any extras. It is a very clean hotel, but that should be a basic expectation.

Room Tip: Check your beds before you get settled to ensure good mattresses.

As an alternative to the luxe and costly but absolutely fabulous Hyatt Regency Resort in Cambridge, MD, try the Holiday Inn Express across the street. Have stayed here twice and have not been disappointed. The staff is very accomodating, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is worthwhile. From 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. the following is provided: cereals, hard-cooked eggs, yogurt, milk, coffee, teas, juices, scrambled eggs, sausage links, various breads and fruits, make-them-yourself pancakes, muffins, and cinammon buns that are heated. Certainly enough to get you on the road home or touring.

Daily newspapers are provided in the lobby: USA Today during the week and local papers during the weekend. Good eating spots along the highway nearby; we like the Greek/Italian Palace (blue building) that is about 1/4 to 1/2 mile west of the hotel.

There is an indoor pool; parking lot is ample for a full hotel. Beds/pillows are comfortable; towels are soft. No microwave but there is an under-counter size refrigerator (Wal-Mart is next door for goodies). WiFi is provided.

Take a ride down to the end of Hoopers Island to get a real feel of living on the Shore. Visit the Blackwater Refuge on the way.

If you hear that J. M. Clayton's Seafood is having a crab feast, by all means go. These crabs are Choptank River crabs and are large, meaty and sweet.

Room Tip: Fourth floor is smoking; all others are non smoking.
