Annapolis is a fairly expensive town in which to spend the night. Most everything I found when I was researching prices is more than I prefer to pay when I'm just going to be sleeping, spending a few hours in a room, and cleaning up the next morning for the next leg of my trip. But I was looking at the Annapolis region recently for a two-night stay, as I had a function with friends in the Newark, Del., area and didn't want to travel on I-95 if I could help it. I knew Annapolis would work well as a base of operations -- check in Friday evening, drive across the Bay Bridge and up to Delaware on Saturday, then back to Annapolis for that night.
I was happy to find the Best Western at a decent rate, and as a plus, they have exterior corridor rooms where you can park right outside your door. I made a reservation on the BW website and then called to ensure I could get a room where I could park right outside the door.
It had been snowing when I arrived on Friday, but the parking lot and walks were in good shape. The lady who checked me in had taken my call to request a first-floor room and my request was accommodated.
The room itself was small, but clean. Wi-fi was OK. Not a big variety of TV stations to choose from on the cable system. Shower water pressure was average. I found it interesting that the toiletries (soap and lotion for the sink; soap, shampoo and conditioner for the shower) were in wall-mounted dispensers rather than bottles, although a bar of soap was provided at the sink. I've seen this before but not very often. No microwave or refrigerator in the room but that's OK because I travel with a cooler and I was close to the lobby to use their microwave.
Hot breakfast was served both days but I wish they had biscuits and gravy. I don't know about restaurants in the area; it was snowing Friday and I didn't want to get out so I went to the lobby and microwaved a sandwich I'd bought earlier in the day. I got something to eat on my way back to Annapolis from Delaware on Saturday so again, I didn't have a chance to check out what was in the area. There is some sort of shopping center across the street and the only store I remember being there is Home Depot.
If you need a reasonably priced place to stay in Annapolis, I can recommend this Best Western. less
