Our family stayed at this hotel this past Thursday-Saturday (August 7-9). We had a Travelzoo deal that we used. The hotel was okay not sure why they are considered a 3 star. When we first arrived the outside of the hotel looked okay and the lobby was decent. When we got to our rooms it was very hot and stuffy....

We got our reservations for the Fort Magruder Hotel through Priceline's Express Deals. We arrived at 4:30 and had to wait in line for about 15 minutes to check in. There were 2 people at the desk and a third arrived to set up a workstation (?) while we were waiting. Once we got to the desk, things went pretty...

Really enjoyed my stay except for the room itself. The hotel is in need of major updates. The staff was great. Nikkah at the front desk was wonderful and so was Stephanie at the restaurant and bar. The staff here is amazing. The only cons I have about my stay is the room itself. When the ac was on, the...

Let's get the negative out of the way.....check-in was just horrible. I arranged with the hotel (or so I thought), prior to my trip that we would arrive very early in the morning. I chose not to deal with the 800# reservation center and called the hotel directly to make sure things were in place. I spoke with someone at...

We traveled July 17th through July 20th, 2014. We got off the elevator and thought we might hit our heads the ceilings were so low. The room was clean but very outdated.

After reading other reviews of this hotel I was apprehensive about staying here. However, this was a last minute 4th of July trip and rooms were very limited so we ended up finding a room here do to a cancellation. The room was very clean and did not smell musty at all. The hotel is located in very close proximity...

Room was clean. Beds fine. Nice indoor and outdoor pools. Extra friendly and helpful staff. Great hot tub in the indoor pool enclosure. Breakfast was great, with eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, muffins, French toast or pancakes, juice and coffee, and wonderful fresh fruit.

As others have stated, the hotel is a good value in an area that is heavily touristed due to numerous attractions. I stayed there in mid-July for my annual family reunion. The organizers hailed the generosity of the hotel as they searched for a venue that could accommodate our small group of 30. They said most other area hotels would...

This place looks decent upon check in. Lobby is decent and girl at the front desk was super sweet. The place is dated. The rooms need a serious update. The beds were horrible.

We selected this hotel because of a Travelzoo voucher. I had stayed there once before and knew it was relatively nice and convenient, and the price was right with the special offer. It was a bit of a hassle to make the initial reservation, but they more than made up for the problems once they were alerted to the issue....
