    The hotel stall was very very nice and helpful. I stay in a hotel about 150 nights a year. This was one of the best overall staffs that I been around. There was a staff member making waffles for people and waiting on us.

    « Convenient and newly redone »

    Excellent location right over the bridge on Kent Island.and across the str eet from excellent seafood restaurants (Fisherman's Inn, and Bridges) Beautiful room and especially appreciated lamp connections for our phones. Bathroom small but adequate and clean. Perfect location for shopping at the Outlet Mall

    « Great location; some items dated »

    The location is great, just across the Kent Narrows bridge from Kent Island. A seafood restaurant is next door. You have great views of the bay, if your room is on the bay side. On the other side, you have a view of highway 50. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast room was small and crowded. The rooms are on exterior hallways, meaning you have to walk outside to get to the breakfast area. I thought there was a problem with my bill, which I only noticed after arriving home, so I corresponded with Marc, the GM, via e-mail and he was very helpful and resolved the problem.

    « Newly renovated!! »

    This place is absolutely no doubt in my mind one of the best hotels I've stayed at in many many years from calling in and placing my reservation I talked to Heather a very nice professional lady. She helped me with making my reservation, I even called back several times to add and change many things to my reservation and she was just an absolute help. When I checked in Heather also checked me in. She was just as bubbly in person as she was on the phone, she welcomed me the second I walk to the door. She reviewed my reservation and noticed that I was not a Best Western rewards member and then proceeded to tell me all of the wonderful advantages becoming a member, so she signed me up even upgraded my room to an immaculate view. The breakfast was absolutely amazing so many different options to choose from. All of the staff that I had came in contact with are absolutely wonderful and very helpful . I will be back for future stay and I highly recommend this to anybody that's looking for a room on Kent island!!!

    « Excellent service. »

    I had a wonderful nights stay here. It could t have been an easier check in. Only down side is not a very large parking area in front couldn't park car in sight from room. Other than that, It was wonderful. The lady at the front desk was very presentable, very informative, helpful and professional. And I would recommend this to anyone in the area! After the sleep inn down the road tried to charge me 250$ for a one night stay in a basic room, I found this a dew miles away and couldnt have been happier!

    « Heather at the front desk! »

    Let me just say that Heather is amazing!! She helped my with my check in and also my check out. She is very friendly and does her job accordingly. She was so busy between the phones, guest, and taking in orders from the delivery guys that she still maintained her time and attention to every one perfectly!! The room was beautiful and my breakfast was outstanding!!! I did not get a chance to us the pool but it looked. We plan to come back again next year for our 2nd anniversary and I hope Heather is there to assist me as she did an amazing job, we loved her!!

    « Niki & Ralph »

    I must say the staff is welcoming and full of wonderful hospitality. I mention Ralph & Niki because they both stood out as extremely professional and welcoming. Ralph is professional and has a tireless work ethic. He does a great job, even on Thanksgiving day! Niki was professional, welcoming and helpful and was also working on Thanksgiving day! We have stayed here before and I was blessed with Niki helping me that last visit also. We enjoy staying here for several reasons. The indoor pool and hot tub are clean and ready and waiting for our visit. The staff has a wonderful attitude. Others have also mentioned the breakfast experience is a pleasure to wake up and enjoy.

    « Had to have a place to stay »

    This is an OLD motel which has been spruced up with new paint, updated bathroom fixtures, etc. The beds were clean and comfy. The pool looked gross and had some kind of oily film floating on the top of the water. However, the breakfast was amazing for the usual free breakfast. I have never seen as good a selection of entrees. The lady who was the breakfast manager was so nice. The Fisherman Inn restaurant across the street was really good and such a nice surprise after a long drive. I would probably not stay there again, however. The view of the water across the street is very nice.

    « Immaculate stay! »

    First off let me just say that this is a very beautiful hotel from walking into the lobby to the cheerful staff behind the front desk and in the beautiful rooms I am astonished at the new renovations at this hotel has went under. The rooms are absolutely beautiful the beds are so comfortable ?? The breakfast is absolutely amazing I love how there's so many options to choose from whether you want hot foods cold foods or just a bagel they have everything that you absolutely need. The pool is a plus for my kids. When checking out Heather was behind the desk and she was just as cheerful and happy and delighted she asked me how everything was with my stay and I told her that it was absolutely gorgeous that we will be coming back. She is very friendly and an absolute sweetheart.

    « Best Western Kent Island »

    The continental breakfast was the star. After that....not impressed. Overpriced for what you get. You have to go outside to get anywhere in hotel which wouldn't be bad if there were proper lighting. Its pretty dark, no security cameras. Front desk told me many people party at the club's across the street and rather than drive they stay there So up front I was told beware of drunks...which came in to play at 2:30 a.m. when 3 stood outside my door and argued. My biggest complaint was the handicapped accessible room. First, it was on the 3rd floor! How safe is that in case of fire when elevator is not an option? Inside the only accommodation was a bigger bathroom with a grab bar in the shower but all fixtures were the same. It was not handicapped accessible for a person in a wheelchair. The bathtub/shower was the standard so a wheelchair bound person was unable to access it. Overall...not someplace I would stay unless the Holiday Inn Express around the corner was full.

    « Super beds, great renovation »

    In spring of 2016 this hotel underwent renovations. We stayed here in Oct 2015 and again in July 2016. The renovations are nice, but let me tell you, the new mattresses are HEAVEN. Our whole group that we came with remarked how great their nights sleep was. Surprisingly several of us took the sheets off to see what brand the mattress was. I actually called Marc who is the General Manager there. He was super and gave me information on the mattress. They are Serta, and special made for Hotels. He went as far as to give me some contact information to see how a guest can purchase Hotel mattresses. We will be ordering one of these Very very soon!!!. Thanks Marc. My back appreciates your help ??

    « Great stay for the money »

    This is a great place to stay even if its just for the weekend. Great restaurants all around, set on the water, great food great view. For those who have never visited the Eastern Shore this is a great place to stop and visit. Very friendly people who will be more than happy to make sure your stay is great.

    « There for a wedding »

    The hotel was good, but the service was excellent. Niki was the standout as she helped us with the check in process, and interacted several times. Always helpful and friendly and on the last day, our rental car would not start, and she personally provided a jump to start our car.

    « Great service; room is OK »

    We arrived late unexpectedly and were given great service by Kara (although we could have booked it cheaper online - we were just tired). The room was loud. The toilet and shower could have been MUCH cleaner. The breakfast is so much better than the Best Western in Annapolis. This motel seems to be undergoing changes, as they are painting the outside and freshening it up. (We would like to see the local art brought back, though!) The indoor pool looked clean and was by a lovely mural, but we did not use it.

    « Clean, Comfortable, Excellent Breakfast »

    Clean Rooms, Friendly Staff and excellent full buffet breakfast. Stayed 6 days - 4th floor, would have been a beautiful view - but it rained the complete time I was there. A bit expensive - but guess you paying for the location... Would definately recommend it.

    « Average »

    Basic room, clean but nothing memorable. Bathroom is tiny and basic. Check in was slow, I wasn't in any hurry but not sure why it seemed to take 5 to 10 minutes when I already had a reservation. Not sure that I would stay here again as there are other options in the area

    « Very acceptable budget hotel experience »

    The service, quality of the room, and my overall experience at this BW location was very good, if not surprising. When looking for a moderately-priced, budget hotel, this location will not disappoint.

    « OK hotel that thrives off of location »

    We stayed at a comfort suites in the middle of nowhere Indiana for $99 a night and it was very nice! This hotel is on the bay near Baltimore and was just OK... and was $200 a night! I understand you pay for the location but it definitely felt like they knew they wouldn't have any problems filling the hotel for whatever price they want to charge. For $200 a night I expect a lot nicer place, but you're kind of stuck I guess when you are by water... and they know it. No complaints about the staff... but its definitely the party place where every stays to walk to the bars. The pool was FREEZING COLD and unusable (weather was in the 70's and 80's). We passed a drug deal on the balcony one day. Rooms didn't feel very home-y or clean but they passed as 'good enough'. Definitely felt like i was overcharged for what I got. I was there for a wedding so I didn't have much choice on where to stay. It was here or $300 a night for the Hilton. Too rich for me...

    « Clean rooms, good breakfast »

    The room was clean, bed comfortable. Bedding and pillows could use an upgrade for the cost of the room. It is a motel not a hotel. Staff was not responsive to request for additional bedding. One skimpy blanket only. The hot breakfast was good and served in a clean sunny room.

    « Great view of the harbor at an affordable price. »

    Wife and I just returned from a 4 day stay for Trawler Fest (boat show). Rate was $102 per night plus tax. Hot breakfast was very nice. Plenty of everything. The exterior of this BW is showing a bit of age and isn't far from a facelift. The room itself was fine. Nice new large HDTV. Comfy beds and pillows. Clean rooms however had a bit of difficulty with the toilets (didn't seem to want to flush properly) Front desk staff was friendly but very, very slow at check in and out. I also want to thank the young man from the maintenance staff that gave us a battery jump with his jumper cables using his personal car. He went out of his way to help us and refused the $10 tip that we offered. I had left the lights on our rental car during a rain storm the previous night. Thank You for your kindness young man. Thank You VERY much.

    Our check-in experience was pretty awful. We were tired, and the process took forever. The room was basic, but clean. The breakfast was good. The pool was great - nicely heated. Location was safe, but a bit noisy.

    « Watch the sun over the marina and water »

    A wonderful 2 night stay. Bay side view was so nice, seeing water and a marina. Many different restaurants, all seafood, no fast food, around. Office staff super friendly and accommodating. Popcorn in the lobby in the early evening. Warm pool and whirlpool, and coin laundry on premises. Microwave and small refrigerator rooms. Lovely area just a few miles from Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Staff were helpful and gave me a later check-out time. I made return reservations as I checked-out.

    « Cute hotel with a great view »

    We stayed one night in Kent Island after a wedding in Annapolis in September. It was a cute little town with restaurants/bars overlooking the water. Everyone was very friendly at the hotel and we were able to check in about an hour early. All the restaurants were in walking distance. The room was very clean and we had a great view from our room! Great spot for sunset.

    « very clean and great location »

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western. It's literally across the street from some amazing restaurants and bars. Perfect home base for exploring the area. The hotel was very clean and the staff at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. I loved the dark colors in the rooms; very cooling! A little pricey though.

    « Beats getting a DUI »

    Was visiting a friend and after several drinks decided I needed to get a room because the drive home was too long. This hotel was close and available and the room was clean comfortable and quiet. The breakfast in the morning was great too. Would stay there again.

    « Don't stay here »

    Don't stay here. The property is not updated. AC didn't work and clothes were wet in AM due to humidity in the room. Hot tub didn't work & mgr. was unresponsive. Cleaning staff skipped our room. High rates and very poor property conditions. Stomach upset after eating in over-crowded and hot breakfast room.

    « Wedding Reservations »

    I reserved 20 rooms for our wedding at this hotel. This hotel didn't charge us for reserving rooms! the Hilton wanted to charge additional $250 to keep our rooms!Best Western even gave us some additional rooms! Becky was super easy going and worked efficiently ! The front desk staff each time I called where very accommodating, easy to talk to and respectful to my guests. Rooms were standard nothing special good views of the Kent narrows area!

    « Best Western Kent Island »

    The place is run down and very disappointing. The rooms make a cheap hotel look good....they are very runs down and in need of updating. Electrical outlets did not work. The electronic door locks kept breaking and we had trouble getting back into our room every time we tried to do so. We had to have maintenance come up to our room to get us in....what a waste of time and a pain in the butt. Stay elsewhere!

    « Very dated with very dark rooms... »

    We checked in on Saturday, September 2nd, 2016. The room charge was $199 as we were there as part of a set of rooms blocked off for a family wedding. We got to our room and quickly realized we would not be staying. The rooms were extremely dark because the walls were painted navy blue. The furnishings were old and although the bathroom appeared to be clean, the toilet would not consistently flush. There was one common balcony that went across the whole building. Each room had two plastic chairs in from of the window on this common balcony. The neighbors were sitting in their chairs smoking, which was a problem for us. The front desk clerks were extremely nice, however they said that because we had technically checked in, we could not get our money back. Since there was no way that we were going to spend another second at this hotel, we cut our losses and went across the street to the Hilton Garden Inn.

    « NOT BEST WESTERN'S BEST »

    Although the area influences the cost of motels, unlike other Best Western Hotels that I have used, I didn't consider this one to be a good value and the attitude of the staff certainly didn't help either. At one point I had to ask myself who is paying who?

  • 4
    « Nice place to stay »

    Nice room, although overpriced for a Best Western due to location. Breakfast was good although small room got very crowded. The bed was comfortable and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave. Would stay again if in the area.

    « Will stay again. Enjoyed it very much here! »

    We stayed 2 nights. Staff friendly and helpful!! Made suggestions on what to do & where to go. The hotel is a little dated. They are working on updates. I loved The blue walls in the room. The pool was nice temp, but hot tub needs attention. Half of the jets don't work & it's more of a "warm" tub. There is s patio deck out from the pool which is very nice! Benches and chairs, lovely green foliage. Breakfast is nice, hot, nothing super excited. One elevator at the FAR end of the hotel. Unless your room is one the 4th, maybe the 3rd, don't pay for bay view. If you do, you'll have a great view of the fisherman's inn. Awesome restaurants in walking distance. Beds are comfy. The pictures are from the 4th floor & across the street.

    « Great place to be ! Feel like home ! »

    « Huge disappointment »

    Reserved 4 weeks in advance for King with view, 2 nights, two people. Confirmed reservation 2 days before arrival. I was assured all was ready for us. Guess what? Ended up in a double on the parking lot. 10% discount on a $500. 00 bill. Small , cramped and noisey. On the plus side....clean. Location is great. That is all.

    « Great stay »

    This was a girl's night out and the location was terrific. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was helpful and friendly. Great stay and great value. The free breakfast was one of the best I have been offered at a hotel. Hot and cold dishes and plenty of strong coffee.

    « EHH... Expensive for quality »

    We only booked here because it was the only option that wasn't booked completely. It was cheapest around, but also the least quality. The room wreaked of mildew and mold. Thankfully we were here for a wedding, so only slept for about 4 hours and then were gone the rest of the time. It's in a central location. The room was quiet since the air conditioner drowned out the outside noise. The front desk staff was very friendly, and we didn't partake in breakfast.

    « Ok for a night »

    The room itself was okay. There's been an honest attempt to update it. The bed was comfy. The room was clean but the bathroom had the oddest smell, musty or something. The air conditioner was a 7 out of 10. The girl who checked us in didn't seem happy to see us, if not bothered we we're there. Convenient to restaurants.

    You can't beat the location of this Best Western. Rooms have been recently renovated and very clean. Our only complaint would be that the air conditioning unit wasn't getting as cool as we would have liked considering it was 96 degrees outside. Other than that the stay was perfect and the service was super friendly!!

    We were here for a family wedding in Stevensville at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club. It was about 15 minutes from the venue and easy to get to. Lots of dinner restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are newly remodeled. Comfortable beds in our king room. Fridge, microwave in the room. Ice and soda vending on every floor. Did some laundry in the laundry facilities here. Old machines, but they worked. Very, very friendly staff! Coffee and popcorn in the lobby. Breakfast was good. Pre-made Cheese omelet, waffle makers, juice coffee, bagels, toast, sausage, yogurt and biscuits and gravy. I had an omelet and a waffle and both were good. I would stay here again for sure!

    « Better than expected »

    My family stayed here one night while visiting friends in the area. Check in was friendly and quick. Our room had two queen size beds, both comfortable. Also a flat screen tv, desk and small bathroom. All were clean and relatively updated. There is an indoor pool and breakfast. The only drawback is the lovely view of the highway but that really isn't a big deal. It is close to restaurants and marinas. We would stay here again.

    « View, Breakfast & Price Excellent »

    An upgrade gives you a view of the gorgeous Bay. All rooms open to outside. Get a room on level four or three for a nice morning walk around and view. Even rooms on otherside, although facing highway are quiet too and as my husband said, "we're just sleeping in the room anyway." Rooms are clean and nice nothing special, frig and micro, blow dryer, iron, small coffee pot. BREAKFAST for "full continental" was EXCELLENT! Whip cream, strawberry waffle batter & regular, almond milk, chocolate syrup, good sausage and decent scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy. The nicest people work in breakfast room. Crab Shack across the street was delightful with FRESH shell fish and good prices. Quite an experience even for us west coasters. Beautiful drive and only 25 minutes from Annapolis, worth the distance and savings.

    « Great location »

    The location is awesome - walking distance to restaurants and water. The views on the water side are incredible and well worth paying extra for. The service from the front desk people and the cleaning ladies was generally outstanding. A small incident kept me from rating it a 4: Upon returning from dinner, the door lock wouldn't work. I went down and had the key cards redone, but they still wouldn't work. A half an hour later (waiting in 90 degree heat), the manager finally took the lock off of the door so that I could get in to pack my stuff to move to another room. I expected some sort of campion for my trouble, but was offered none. This affirms my normal practice of mostly staying at Marriott branded hotels.

    « Rip off »

    I was told check in was 3:00 PMwhen I called the hotel the day before mty arrival. I arrived at 2:45 and was told check is was at 5:00 and that a mistake was made when I was told 3:00. We needed to be at a wedding at 6:00 and I specifically picked this hotel because of the check-in time. I was told for about $20.00 more they might be able to find something. 10 minutes later and $20.00 extra dollars out of my pocket 5 rooms opened up. I think this is a scam and I was taken advantage of.

    Disappointed that no longer pet friendly!!! Hopefully, they will change and set aside a number of rooms for Senior travelers who have the ability to pay a little extra for their small dog - easily limit to 40 pounds.

    Stayed here for a long weekend. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The recent renovations are complete and the rooms are very nice. We were in 407 facing the bay and the Fisherman's Inn. The odd numbered rooms are on the bay side. The location is good for places like the Fisherman's Inn, the Crab Deck, the Jetty and other local hot spots. It's a short walk to all of them. We will be returning soon.

    « Beware of Bay View »

    Paid extra for the 'bay view' room. Had a view of the front of the hotel awning! Front desk gave me another room but only after arguing with me over what their ads say....online says bay view, they say at hotel bay side. Had to take 2 of the wash clothes down to front desk to ask for more, they had mold stains on them. This hotel won't see me again!

    « Rude receptionist. For all you dog lovers, they no longer accept pets. »

    We have stayed in the hotel several times a year for the last ten 10 years. Average hotel but it's clean and the front desk has always been extremely friendly and welcoming. And the location is fabulous...great bars and restaurants right across the street. Called to make a reservation tonight and was informed that pets are no longer allowed. I was quite disappointed as we usually have our small dog with us when we travel. The clerk was obnoxious about the change...could have cared less and was very rude in her attitude about the whole thing. What has happened to your friendly clerks? And why the change in the pet policy?

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    Stayed for one night with my girlfriend over Memorial Day Weekend 2016. Typically, we stay in Renaissance/JW Marriott but obviously those types of options do not exist here. But wow, we were both very pleased with the condition of the room, particularly the comfort level of the bed. I suffer from three herniated discs and mattress quality is extremely important. We will definitely be looking to stay here again in the future.

    « False Promises »

    I believe in Best Western, I only use Best Western, for business and pleasure. This year, we had 9 rooms booked for our fishing trip at the Chesapeake Bay. The majority of my party had rooms on the second floor, were a wedding party got out of control, very noisy during the night, the hotel failed to take action. If the desk clerk is a coward, hire security, or call the Police. We were promised to go bags in the morning as we leave before breakfast is served, no bags, clerk had no knowledge she was to prepare any. The check out process was very slow and painstaking. It took 30 minutes to check out 9 rooms, next year, you got may card, I'm walking. Like I said, I believe in Best Western, we have stayed at this hotel this time each year for several years, we are in the 7th year of the Chesapeake Bay Fishing Trip, we have always had excellent service with best Western, and at this location. I'm certain, Best Western not liking these comments, we will find better service next year, Best Western is good at cleaning up their act.

    « What you see is what you get »

    On a last minute whim, we made a reservation. Lowest rate we could find with availability. One side faces Rte 50. The other side faces several seafood restaurants and a marina. Fortunately, we had the latter. Room was ok. Everything about it was ok, except there were several wedding parties staying there. Quite noisy. Front desk staff were quite nice. Except we got back to the hotel about 4 PM to find that the room had not been cleaned. 'Well, you call to ask us to clean it.' And then, when we returned from dinner, the room keys did not work.

    Hotel is in a great location, the View of the Bay is amazing. Rooms recently redone and very nice. This was not my first stay at this hotel and it will not be my last. I was away for business but able to bring my son. He can't wait to go back!

    « Amazing Staff! »

    I just stayed at the Best Western Kent Narrows over memorial day weekend, the front office staff (Ciara) I believe was her name was extremely helpful and sweet! She deserves a raise for excellent customer service! The rooms were very nice, clean, quiet for sleeping. Loved that it was within walking distance of awesome restaurants and bars! The absolute best thing about my stay was that I unfortunately realized 3 hours into driving back to Kentucky that I left my $75 pillow in the hotel room! I was so bummed that I had left it there, but the manager shipped my pillow to me 2 day priority shipping! That is awesome customer service!! If i'm ever back in Maryland I will definitely be staying here! :)

    « Mini-vacation success »

    We had two rooms, different floors which wasn't expected but okay. We loved that we were able to have the views of the Bay instead of Route 50. Upon arrival our rooms were not available. We didn't mind too much, we just went to have have a late lunch across the street, by the time we were done, the rooms were ready. Beds were SUPER comfortable and rooms very clean. The air condition unit in our room wouldn't stay on but did keep the room cool when it was running. Would recommend hotel.

    Conveniently located off 301 near good restaurants and harbor location. Have stayed here before and always satisfied with service. Love Fisherman's Inn across th street. Great Happy Hour. There is an elevator which makes it easier especially for those with stair issues.

    « Wonderful night's sleep »

    After a very long 10+ hour drive this late-night stop was very welcome. The front counter staff both late-night and morning were very pleasant and efficient in checking me and my family in and out. The beds were extremely comfortable and provided a very much needed good night's sleep. It was the best night's sleep I had gotten in a long time.

    « Lots of other places nearby »

    The good, the bad & the ugly: We'll start with the good: In fairness, they have a great breakfast (for a chain hotel) and good water pressure in the bathroom. I was pleasantly surprised that the towels were not thread bare - surprisingly thick. Also, the location is good. We had to stay here to attend a wedding hearby, but there are plenty of other options (as long as you're here when there are not 7 weddings on the same day!). The bad: Long lines at check in and many people's rooms were not ready. Ours was. We came in to find beds with fitted sheets that were too small, so they were bulging off the mattress. We tried to fix them but they were pulled so tight in an attempt to fit on the beds, we figured we'd make do. We awoke the next morning all caught up in the sheets that of course came off and we'd slept on the bare matttress all night. Yuck. Also, the TV didn't work - no signal - and no one else from the maintenance staff could get it to work. Yes we had a TV, but no it didn't work. We reported the problem. No luck. We had people knocking at our door at midnight, people smoking outside the room at 2AM, which the HVAC system pulled right into our room so we awoke to the smell of cigarette smoke, and then at 4AM the noise from the room next door started. I agree with other reviews that the walls are paper thin. Everyone was talking about it in the breakfast room. The ugly: For the price we paid for our room, I would have expected better value. I would say, if you have a choice, try another place down the street.

    « Lots of reason to stay at this hotel off US 50 »

    We were pleased to see that improvements and upgrades have been made since our last visit in late 2014. So, this review is short. Everything we used or enjoyed worked. Simply and well, though aging. WiFi worked effortlessly without dropping. The desk staff was very courteous, cheerful and efficient. The whirlpool, which we used soon after arriving, was just right for two to stretch out in. The Fisherman's Inn across the road is the lure to this hotel, and we have not been unhappy with our choice of this hotel. A nice touch in the standard-fare complimentary continental breakfast is that it starts at 6:30 am, which helped get us into the Washington traffic early. On-and-off access to US 50 couldn't be easier.

    « Better than expected :) »

    Well as I read the reviews before my stay, I was a little apprehensive going in. I'd like to say the hotel construction was non existent and the rooms were fantastic. The cleanliness and comfortable beds were awesome. The staff was very friendly and one I remember was Dianne P at the frontdesk. She was so welcoming and obviously enjoyed the people she met coming in the door. The breakfast provided rated as well as most we go too. There's only so much you can serve in that environment, the staff person Judy did a great job. So I hope this review lessens any anxiety one may have with reading previous renovation reviews.

    « Good Room, A few minor issues »

    The refrigerator did not work and there was no trashcan. Other than that, everything was good. There is not much to do in the immediate area, but the surrounding restaurants and bars are good. We were there for the Bay Bridge Boat show. The parking lot gets very full and hard to find parking when the hotel is completely booked. Overall, it is a good place to stay if you are looking for a room in that area.

    « Nice room, terrible breakfast »

    We've stayed at this hotel before, but not for quite a few years. It's being renovated. Our third floor room was newly renovated and very nice, although the new drapes were already torn. We were there for only one night and didn't experience any noise from the renovations. This hotel is NO LONGER PET FRIENDLY as noted by management in their reply to a recent review. We weren't traveling with a pet but will be doing so in the near future, and I asked about this at the desk. The problem was with coffee and breakfast. I asked if coffee was available before 6:30 AM (when breakfast starts) and the desk clerk pointed out the coffee machines in the lobby. My husband went down about 5:45 the next morning to get some. There were no cups, and nobody was at the desk. We tried the coffeemaker in the room - there were no little packets of creamer. When we went down to breakfast there was plenty of coffee, and it was good. There were some breakfast items in a warmer - eggs, sausage and french toast - but they were all stone cold (really, really cold). We're not sure the warmer was even plugged in. The breakfast attendant came through at one point and got herself a cup of coffee, then disappeared. Amusingly, there was a little sign about creating your own oatmeal bowl, but no oatmeal, only cold cereal. We weren't expecting a gourmet breakfast buffet but this was very bad. I might stay there again just because it's a convenient stop on the road from MA to FL, and it's relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels in the area. I wouldn't count on the coffee before 6:30 AM. Lots of people might want to grab a cup for the road long before that. I wouldn't count getting a decent breakfast either.

    This is a nice pet friendly place with an extremely helpful staff and a great location. I was looking forward to seeing the renovated rooms, and they are nice but the renovation looks to have been purely cosmetic. We will stay again, the rates are generally good and it's one of the only places around to accept dogs.

    « Under renovation »

    This hotel is under renovation and it is not cited anywhere on website when booking. If you are in an even numbered room, you will have the highway noise interrupting your rest. We paid full price for a room just above renovations. We were sickened by the fresh paint smell, the shower had some sort of sand or other grit in the bottom, and the "towels" given were 2 towels, and 3 bath mats. The TV took time to load, and after 6 minutes it finally showed a picture. Most of the channels we tried jumped in and out due to satellite. We could not log onto the WiFi. We gave up! We asked for another room due to a safety concern I had, and were told we had to pay more for it. We booked this weekend trip 3 months in advance, and were very disappointed. I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel.

    « I'll think again about this place »

    We stayed here or a friends 50th birthday getaway weekend in beautiful Kent Island, MD. While I understand doing renovations in the off-season, one would think that it would be done a floor at a time, and not the chaotic mess that it was scattered here, there and everywhere, but it was. A modest Best Western with a nice view of the bay, and if you are lucky, you can catch a gorgeous sunset from the balcony outside your room. (yes, do yourself a favor, stay in a bayside room, much quieter). We had a newly renovated bayside room, new carpet/bedding/furniture, which was a nice delight, also the room was very clean, but still heard noise from outside, and we had a room getting a redo next to us, so we heard hammering at odd hours during our weekend stay. Other things that were unacceptable were the kids that ran rampant the last night of our stay, running amuck down the hallways at all hours of the night and they managed to throw resin chairs from balcony rooms on the 4th floor to the parking lot, knocking out the Direct TV satellite feed for the whole hotel? on Sunday morning, on a big departure from the weekend travel day! NOT GOOD!! Also when I mentioned this upon check out I was told that there was nothing that they could do, since there was no manager on duty. UGH! Disappointing to say the least? now I have to drive all the way home on minimal sleep! Some weekend getaway. While I will be back to beautiful Kent Island, another stay at this place is questionable, especially when charging full off-season rates during a renovation and making guest breathe in paint fumes all weekend!

    « Under construction »

    The rooms were freshly renovated. Amenities were nice and all were available, but pretty major work was under way at this location. The main lobby was completely closed and building materials were on the landing in front of several rooms that were currently being worked on. Guests were allowed to smoke on the walk ways in front of the rooms and their smoke came into our room if you entered on exited your room.

    « Under renovation... full price for diminished features »

    Best Western has a lot of nerve charging full off season rates for a stay crippled by a hotel in the midst of a major renovation. The lobby was partitioned off and ugly, the ice machine on our floor was broken, the TV and the phone didn't work. The electrical fixtures in the elevator were exposed and there were fingerprints and smudges all over the stainless panels. Obviously not cleaned in days. Our room had a view of a gigantic dumpster, and workmen in respiration masks were all over the place.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    Having lived on Kent Island I was familiar with the Best Western but had never stayed there before. Since we longer live on KI but needed a place to stay, I chose the BW for 2 reasons - pet-friendly and cost. Room was clean, front desk staff was great, and it was overall a great place to spend the night. Did not take advantage of the indoor pool, exercise equipment so I can't say about those, the breakfast room was nice with a fairly good assortment of foods - just right for a "free breakfast"

    « Worst Hotel Experience I've Ever Had »

    My husband and I are staying at the Best Western at Kent Narrows in while our home is having some renovations done. We have been here for a week and this is by far the worst hotel experience I have ever had. I will say, to be fair, that the front desk service is very good. Everyone at the front desk has been friendly and helpful, however the management and housekeeping is absolutely awful. Our TV has not worked in 6 days despite at least a half dozen phone calls and messages for management. Additionally, housekeeping as only come in 2 or 3 times and on the designated day to thoroughly clean the room no one ever came at all(not even to change the towels and empty the trash). Additionally, the rooms are outdated and everything in them is old. Do not stay here.

    « Dust Galore »

    This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in my 25 years of travel. The location was convenient so we decided to stay. I woke up many times throughout the night with itchy/watery eyes, sniffling, and itching. I couldn't sleep well and was absolutely miserable. The source could had been the air conditioning/fan unit circulating the dust, so we turned it off and had no circulating fan or air. The air then became damp and musky smelling. Also, NONE of the table lamps or floor lamp were working. It was an inconvenience to call the front desk for assistance or complain- especially in the middle of the night, so we kept the harsh bright main light. This was the worst experience and most uncomfortable stay ever.

    « Heading south »

    This was a stopover on a trip south. Reservations were easy to make from the road and we feel that Best Western offers the convience, locations and services we want. No hassle check in with membership number again makes it easy to check in and out.

    « Very noisy due to highway 50 being close to hotel »

    Very nice hotel and very well kept, had a jacuzzi in our room but, unfortunately should have been on the back side of the hotel to not hear the semi trucks all night long. We had a very load refrig as well as all the other loud noises all night long. The bed was very comfortable. If I ever stay there again I will bring along earplugs to drowned out all the noise

    « fix the heater noise »

    The hotel checked all the boxes except for an unusually loud heater/air conditioner unit. the unit cycled every 3 minutes and the fan noise was crazy loud. In spite of being beside a highway, there was no excessive noise from outside. The staff were welcoming and excellent. The dog run was a welcome bonus and very much appreciated in the morning.

    « Great motel »

    Four of us stayed there on Dec 18, 2015. Everything was very good. Room was clean, appliances worked, beds comfortable and they even had hunters rates for us off-season visitors. They had a breakfast area where you could gentnearly everything you could want--and a lady that kept things stocked and clean. Views of the bay were great. A good number of bars and restaurants were very close--one offering an oyster buffet which was awesome. There was no nonsense about bring guns to the motel and much conversation there was around duck hunting and fishing. This is a very nice friendly place, good rates and we will return next year.

    « AVOID!--Terrible Front Desk Staff, NOISY hotel »

    Checked in to find my room is 50 yards or less from a major US highway!! I called the front desk to have my room moved to the other side of the building and the snippy front desk staff told me the "bay side" of the building is all booked. I indicated that I would then be leaving to find a different hotel and they refused to credit my credit card, and insisted on charging me for the night--even though we had not used the room! Best Western is NOT a decent hotel chain is they don't guarantee a good night's sleep or customer satisfaction. There are SO many hotels in this area why would anyone choose to stay in this rather dated, noisy place?

    This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel, although our earlier visit was in the winter. We asked for and received a first floor room, convenient to parking, the breakfast room, the pool and the lobby. The beds in the "typical hotel room" were comfortable. The bathroom was a little on the small size, especially considering that the sink was outside the bathroom. Bathtub/shower was tight, but adequate. The "heated pool" could have been a tad warmer! Nice hot tub attached. Didn't eat breakfast there but did go in to get coffee to take back to the room. Hotel personnel were pleasant and helpful.

    « very nice and affordable »

    Compared to other hotels in the area, the pricing for the Best Western was the most affordable. The room was very large and spacious! We were on the highway side and didn't hear any noise from route 50. We stayed for a wedding and there were lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance to the hotel. The area in general seems to be more expensive than it should be, but the best western was the most affordable option on kent island and there were a lot of amenities, including breakfast, a pool, a fitness center and laundry.

    I stayed at this particular location in the past month and I must say that pretty much the whole staff is very very nice and helpful. Mary is very friendly and excellent when you are checking in and shes always very happy. The "Host" is very rude and not friendly at all and I really did not care for his attitude towards me or my husband and he was not at all hospitable. . The rooms are clean and I enjoyed my stay, the breakfast was good and we had a nice time besides the one problem.

    The room was clean, but the connecting room was not non-smoking. The guests in that room seemed to smoke non-stop. The smoke smell invaded our room. Also, there was a large truck idling in the parking lot outside of our room all evening! If you are sensitive to smoke smell this may not be the hotel for you! Also, try to get a room on the side of the hotel away fro teh highway.
