Here you will find a room for one on the southwest edge of Baltimore city, 10-15 minutes from BWI Airport, and five miles from downtown Baltimore.
This is a small room on the second floor of a four bedroom house. The room contains a twin-sized bed, desk, 27 inch TV, and rack to hang your clothes on.
Linens, which includes one set of sheets for the bed, towel and facecloth are provided.
Breakfast is not provided.
However, the kitchen is modern and spacious, and.you will be a few blocks from a shopping center with a large international grocery store, pharmacy, other shops as well as restaurants.
The kitchen and bathroom are shared with up to two other guests.
Hardwood floors are throughout the house.
Bus lines are within walking distance, and the light rail going to BWI, downtown Baltimore or Hunt Valley is 1 1/2 miles away. If you are driving , on-street parking is readily available on this quiet dead end street.
The hosts do not live here, although are readily available by phone or email.
This is a house with good access to Baltimore that is being used to rent out rooms. The owners were doing some last minute cleanup when I arrived. You will not be pampered, but all the basics are covered with a few nice extras. The wireless internet was fast, and the kitchen/laundry facilities were available for use. There were a couple of others staying at the house, but I only saw one of them a couple of times. I shared the bathroom with him, but I never had any trouble getting in when I needed to. The house is somewhat near a railway crossing where the train sounds its horn, so might want some earplugs if you are a light sleeper. This is a budget BNB, but if you are trying to stay within a budget, this may be what you are looking for.
Rating on a scale of 1 (worst) to 5 (best):
Overall: 3 (Somewhat satisfactory)
Cleanliness: 2 (Host could have done more to prep the place for cleanliness)
Host: 3 (Was told the host would meet me at the house to give me the keys, but instead, after calling the host's number, I would only get voicemail and a call back later. Never saw the host upon arriving at the house and throughout the duration of my stay of three nights.)
Atmosphere (within the house): 3
Safety (of the surrounding area): 3 (The area is ok and would be safe for most during daylight hours. My advice here would just be to use some common sense regarding your personal safety.)
Other: If taking public transportation, would advise taking bus 016 to the Light Rail train stop, which will then get you downtown. Fares for public transportation are $1.60 (one way) and $3.50 (all day pass) - no change is provided for buses and light rail stations provide change for light rail tickets only.
This property is an older house on a quiet dead-end street (with no traffic). A street-light keeps the on-street parking (in front of house) well illuminated. Generally speaking, the house was clean and appeared to be maintained in good overall condition. House is located in a lower working class (but secure) neighborhood. The surrounding (detached) houses on this street had a clean and maintained appearance....This is a budget B&B.... The owner/host no longer lives at the house. You bring your own breakfast and prepare it yourself (in the full kitchen). Each bedroom has a keylock door. The one other guest (that I met) was a friendly and respectful person. The "airbnb" photos accurately showed the rooms. This house seemed set-up for youthful-adult travelers, home searchers (who need a temporary place), students (Note: University of Maryland - BC is somewhat nearby), and other short-term (less-expensive) stay scenarios. Overall, this is was an acceptable place to stay.
It's a bed, in a room, in a house, in Baltimore. Don't want to be negative but the room and house were pretty dirty. Dozen or so dead bugs on window sill. OK for someone looking for a place to crash. Would not stay again. Sheets were clean but the promised towel & face cloth were not provided.
