“Diamond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2011

My wife and I had our wedding at the Laurel Grove Inn, and couldn't have been happier with the results. The grounds were beautiful, offering good options for sunny day and rainy day options, and with more than enough space to accommodate our out-of-town guests. Tiffany and her family were amazing.. Several of our guests vowed to return themselves for a weekend getaway. Marylanders looking for a good sunset spot for their wedding, look no farther :D

We rented the whole house for our stay. There were 12 people in our group plus many other relatives and friends from the US Naval Academy coming during the day time for BBQ's and Dinners. The owners, Tiffany and Tom (and daughters) made us feel not only welcome but comfortable. We had arranged to use their kitchen and BBQ for our meals. Tiffany and Tom even went to the store for us to pick up fresh steamed crab and steaks while we were at the Naval Academy picking up our son and his friends. Some mornings we had to be out the door by 6:30am and Tiffany was up making bacon, eggs and fruit and coffee for us.
The rooms were very large and the beds are new and comfortable, each with a TV. Bathrooms were clean as were the sheets and blankets. The house is not immaculately clean but it is still clean. No one in my group had any complaints about the house. The property is beautiful and watching the sunset from the upper back deck was awesome. We had some early teens with us and they enjoyed the trampoline and seeing the deer meander through the area.
The house is located far enough away from downtown Annapolis that there are no busy streets but close enough to easily drive there in 10 minutes. We have already reserved the house for our next trip back.

Stayed at the Laurel Grove Inn as part of a television shoot, and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Tiffany and her family went above and beyond to accommodate us during our stay, and we were blown away by the views and the property. The Inn was in beautiful condition, gorgeously decorated, and breakfast was outstanding. I was there for business, but would return to the Laurel Grove Inn as a personal vacation destination anytime! Highly recommended!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2009

After alot of research on where to stay in Annapolis, we decided on this property based on favorable reviews from several different websites. The moment we arrived at the front door, we suspected that these reviews were not so accurate. Our suspicions were confirmed shortly after looking around the place. Although the owner/innkeeper was very warm & friendly, it was obvious that she did not have experience in the hospitality field. The property, both inside and out, was an incredible mess. It clearly hadn't been cleaned in quite a while.Cobwebs, dust, a shattered widow, bugs, dog hair, in the public rooms. Dirty dishes in the sink, crumbs on the counters, food left out in the public kitchen. There was old coffee & moldy grinds left in the coffee pot in our room. The bathroom was worse, with a dirty towel with make-up on it & hair in the bathtub. We actually scrubbed the shower & tub clean before we used it. We had to ask for shampoo & soap, and were given used trial sized samples. One of the beds had hair inside, after pulling back the sheets. There was a "family" of bugs crawling around the dirty carpet, and seemed to be multiplying daily. There was dog urine in both the public kitchen & the game room that had not been cleaned up during our entire stay. In addition, our room was never cleaned, linens & towels never refreshed. There was several piles of dog feces outside the front door, which were also never cleaned up.
The grounds were unkept, an old covered hot tub and a very unstable gazebo that was falling down & propped up by a tractor.
This property has so much potential to be fantastic. It was a shame and very sad to see that the owners do not value their amazing location, nor their paying guests. Like I said, we would not recommend staying here. Ever.

I find this review very concerning. I have a professional cleaning service each week come to "spruce" it up . The day I am expecting guests I personally go through the room to be occupied to ensure everything is in place. I can remember exactly the customer that this review was written since no matter what I did to make them comfortable it wasnt enough. Im sorry that their experience was not what they expected.
