This property is located right on the water in Solomons which can make for some great views if you have the right room, but otherwise it is just an average hotel and reminds me why Holiday Inn has such a generally poor reputation.
The hotel is very spread out and appears to have been in two sections, with my section being the most recent. This results in confusion as the main elevators only go to certain floors, and you need to find the other elevators to get to the other rooms. Also the hallways are quite long, so if you are located at the end of the hallway, expect a decent walk to the elevator. It actually is faster to take the stairs if you are only going up or down one floor.
There is nothing special about the rooms and most of the pictures on the hotel website are from the suites which are nicer and not as dowdy as the regular rooms. The doors look like they came straight from the 70's with a wood veneer that reminded me of the cheesy fake wood panels I grew up with.
Even though I am a Platinum Elite member I wasn't recognized as such which is a major negative in my view.
On the plus side there are plenty of places to eat from McDonalds and Burger King down the street to seafood restaurants galore.
If you have other options for lodging in Solomons I would look at those first because for $102 it wasn't worth the price.
This property is in serious need of a facelift.
