Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonPablo Excellent hotel for extended stay
I spent nearly 6 weeks here in June and July. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about my stay. The room (a 1-person king bed studio) was just what I needed: the bed was comfortable; the work desk, free wireless Internet, and free access to a printer in the business center allowed me to get a lot of work done; and the TV (with all the expected channels) swiveled so it could be viewed from the desk, couch, or bed. Everyone at the hotel was friendly, from the front desk staff to the breakfast crew and the cleaning staff, and I got to know many of them during my stay. They were also very helpful whenever I needed something unusual -- they scanned a document for me; they allowed me free use of a storage area for my luggage, free parking for my car, and free use of their airport shuttle when I had to fly to a conference in the middle of my stay; and they even borrowed a rollaway bed from another hotel in their network when my son came to visit.
Because I was away from home for so long I depended on the full kitchen in the room (full refrigerator/freezer, 2-burner stove, microwave, and dishwasher - although no oven). For this size room they provide 3 place settings, basic utensils (spatula and serving spoons, can opener, corkscrew, vegetable peeler), and a set of Revereware pots and pans (Dutch oven, saute pan, saucepan, and even a steamer attachment for the saucepan - much better than the pots and pans I've seen at some other hotels in the past). I'm glad I brought my own chef's knife, and I ended up buying some wooden spoons and a bigger bamboo cutting board, but I was able to cook plenty of good meals with this setup. There are a few grocery stores within a 10-15 drive; I usually went to the Green Valley Marketplace in Elkridge (Cindy's Liquors in the same shopping center has a good wine selection), but a Food Lion and Safeway are about as close, and a little further away are a Trader Joe's (The Perfect Pour in the same shopping center also has a very good wine selection) and a Whole Foods.
Breakfast every day was nice. They offer plenty of options, ranging from some daily egg dish, sausage or bacon, and potatoes to oatmeal, cold cereal, a waffle machine, bagels, muffins, toast, and probably some other things I never got around to trying. They keep carafes of coffee (regular, decaf, and hot water for tea) in the lobby all day. The evening receptions every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening are also a nice touch. They offer a salad bar, some sort of entree (burgers and hot dogs/brats every Wednesday, some sort of pizza every week or two, and sometimes things like BBQ sandwiches, fajitas, soup and submarine sandwiches, or a baked potato bar), and drinks (soft drinks, wine, and 2 draft beers).
In short, I'm glad I stayed here for these 6 weeks, and I will definitely stay here again if I need to be in the area for another extended stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by drugstorediva Comfortable bed and hospitable
The staff managed to give us a room even though we arrived a day early. The desk clerk was fast and polite while doing it-even though the joint was jumping. The room's kitchen had everything you would need to be able to have some meals "at home". This facility has two elevators, one at each end. This made wait time a little less than expected. The staff at the desk was efficient and always caring. One of the 2 room telephones only worked for incoming calls, but this did not prove to be a problem for us. The airconditioning was "spotty". Although the room felt home/apartment-like, the airconditioning was a throw-back to roadside motel days. Those directly in line with the fan were cold, while everyone else was too warm. The transportation was dependable with a reasonable wait time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RedSox13 Even better than we were expecting
The initial reasons why we decided to stay at Staybridge were proximity to the airport at downtown and breakfast being included. We were not disappointed with either of these -- the hotel is conveniently located between the airport and downtown, and the assortment of breakfast options was impressive. In addition to these things, we were pleasantly surprised when we discovered that we had a full kitchen in our suite. We were expecting a little kitchenette, so having a full stove and full fridge was a definite surprise!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oceanliner1 Welcoming, Professional Staff, Clean & Comfortable Rooms
First time stay.
My conclusions -
- Check-in. Interacted with Sabrina during check-in and stay. As the initial point of contact representing Staybridge, she immediately makes you feel welcome and that this hotel was a good choice. Once settled into the room even got a phone call from her inquiring if I had found everything to be in good order and were there any concerns.
- Rooms were well laid out. Kitchen with two burners (no oven), microwave, full refrigerator, cabinets, utensils, cookware/plates and dishwasher (for those that want to cook in and save). Sofa and single seat in front of flat screen TV. Office table and chair with free fast wi-fi. Two double beds in this one bedroom suite configuration with another flat panel TV separated by french doors from living space. Separate bath and dressing areas.Beds (a concern from a previous reviewer) were found to be very comfortable and bath towels (another reviewer concern) were plentiful, the cotton was tufted - which was different - but they had a nice feeling to them. Unit was very clean.
- Breakfast was similiar to other brands and slight better in some regards. Although you expect the food to be pre-cooked except for waffles, I found egg/cheese omlettes both days, with sausage one day and bacon on the other which were warm and tasty, a selection of cold cuts, the usual fruits, yogurt, cereal, juices, coffee, etc. The breads were numerous and a change was made after concern from a prior review to the french toast (rarely seen in other brand hotels). After warming in the toaster it was very tasty. I want to shout out special attention to detail by the servers. A prior review pointed out they would run out of things. This was over the July 4th perod when there were lots of hungry people. Lesia was very attentive in making sure that nothing "disappeared", while also attending to table cleaning, sweeping up the occasional dropped dish, and politely acknowledging any complaints made. This type of position is the target for complaints...few compliments if job is done right. Lesia was outstanding in starting off her guest's day. When I asked if there would be more french toast #as it was close to closing#, she made it a point to come to my table and advise there were two in the toaster for me. Outstanding job should be recognized by management.
- Evening social is offered Tuesday - Thursday. We missed the Greek salad, burgers and brautwurst the first night we checked in but the second night was cream of brocholli soup, regular salad and two types of subs. Sodas, white/red wine and beer were also included. Very tasty/filling and eliminated the need for a later dinner cost. Again, the server made sure that nothing ran out and was very professional #did not catch her name#.
-Other amenities include a fitness room, free washer/dryer area, a theater room, pantry for purchases and a small pool. Again, with a nod to staff, I observed the Lifeguard #yes - they had one# in his morning routine while eating breakfast and his attention to detail was excellent. Making sure the pool was sparkling, netting anything found in the water, checking chemicals, placing towels on all the seats, etc. He was very professional and did his job well.
- the ONLY con found was that the rooms on the second floor above the breakfast area will tend to have air filled with the aroma of breakfast every morning - it wakes you. For some thats a good thing. If you love uninterrupted sleep request a higher floor or further from that area.
-For the cost this was an excellent choice. People want clean, comfortable rooms and a welcoming staff that know their jobs. Management takes action of review concerns and learns from them.That's what I found here ane will return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wvalumni2004 Very Good Weekend
Me and my girlfriend stayed here from June 28 to the 30th. One issue we had was while making the reservation. The agent really did not know how to do a Gift Certificate Reservation for one night and a AAA rate for the second night. Contacted the GM and had this issue resolved but still had two reservations which I did double check to make sure they checked us out and back in on the 29th in the same room.
Breakfast was better last year when we stayed here. There was better selection last June than this year and they kept on running out of food. Yes it was busy but they should of anticipated that. Also, when I made sure that I was checked out and back in on the 29th, I asked for Do Not Disturb to be brought up because there wasn't one in the room but we never got it. We also did not get light housekeeping because our beds never got made and we were glad we didn't put the towels on the floor because of them not touching the room. They should automatically give housekeeping to short term stayers.
Besides these minor issues, we had a very good time in the room and around the Baltimore/Linthicum area. It was a very relaxing weekend we both needed. Will probably be back again if we are planning on going to the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sai22 Clean Comfortable and very friendly!
We recently stayed at Staybridge Suites in Linthicum, MD.
Very very nice ... clean, comfty, great breakfast buffet. Staff very friendly... especially Maria and the GM Angela! We gave it a 4 on the Room & Comfort is because we found a stain on sheet toward the foot of the bed and told Maria at the front desk. She immediately expressed her concern and called housekeeping and gave instructions on a complete bed change that day. We were out all day and when we came back the room smelled good all was clean until we looked at the sheets! Same sheet on the bed - never was changed. I laid a towel on that part of the bed. We checked out the next morning early but did tell Maria what happened. I told her we were checking out early but not because of the sheets epidsode. We will stay there again on our next trip to area.... We highly recommend this hotel. ps ... whomever cleaned the room did not follow instructions ... also the sheet should of never been put on bed even if they were not able to remove the stain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Millertime Clean, comfortable bed & great service
The room was very clean and very nice. The hotel staff was always very helpful. The shuttle service was always available to take you to work, to the airport, to the mall, or anywhere you wanted to go within a 3 mile radius. Always hot breakfast every morning, only issue was finding food on the weekends because of the amount of people checked in on weekends. But the staff always tied to rush and get more food as needed. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and relatives.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by maj912 407 Terrible bed
I picked this hotel because we stayed in a SBS in Palmdale Ca and loved it. This room did not compare at all, the bed was very uncomfortable, the towels appeared very worn. The front desk clerk was more concerned about the phone ringing than checking us in despite having a 6mo baby checking in after 8 hours of travel. I have recently stayed at hotel of lower known quality and had better nights sleep. From the check in experience to the poor bed I rather save the 20 dollars and stay somewhere else. Thanks for your time and the opportunity to comment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JMCrash Was once a great property
This was once the best place around BWI to stay. The staff were friendly, the shuttle was punctual, and the rooms were clean.
Sadly all of the above have changed and the change was almost overnight.
The staff turnover is higher than any hotel I’ve regularly stayed. The rooms are only partially cleaned and the hotel has recently acquired a unique smell to the hallways and the rooms as if they are being cleaned with a dirty wash rag.
The hotel shuttle has become a guessing game on whether it will show up to where you requested. When I asked the driver what took so long, 40 minutes to the rental car facility, his reply: no one told me you were waiting. This has happened the last three stays
Breakfast, forget about it. Coffee containers are always empty, it took 20 minutes to get them refilled and the food is so so. The staff have a unconcerned attitude.
If you’re looking for a Holiday Inn Express this is the place for you. If you’re looking for a Staybridge experience, my advice is to move on to another property. This was my last stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Twices Room Cleaning and Breakfast
The rooms was very comfortable however, the notice to have the room service should not be on the back of the toilet. I did not see the notice until Saturday which was late to have the room clean or get clean towel. My suggestion is that if guest are checking in for the first time on a Friday than the front desk should inform the guest that if they want a lite cleaning than they must inform housekeeping by 5pm that day.
The other issue was that we were told that breakfast is between 7:30am-9:30am on Saturday however, nothing was available until 8:30-8:45am.
Other than these two issues my stay was comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob09 A Great Airport Option
I stayed for one night before an early flight the next day. The desk staff was great. The hotel room was clean and comfortable and I enjoyed the free reception with beverages and wings. It was also nice to be able to rent a DVD of a first run movie for only $1.00 as I was staying by myself and had done enough work for one day.
You can't miss with this "New" hotel and its great staff and facility.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tash123 Overall a GREAT stay!
I was definitely pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of our room. As a matter-of-fact, I was so pleased with everything that I was a repeat customer. The staff was very courteous and friendly both times and even during a 3am checkout.
The lady that worked in the breakfast area was very nice and accommodating with our children, and she made delicious biscuits with gravy :).
In a world where customer service leaves a lot to be desired it was very refreshing to experience great customer service at this Staybridge Hotel (BWI airport), as well as the cleanliness, quality, and comfort. I would definitely recommend this Hotel.
Thank you to all the staff that made our stay such a pleasant one and keep up the great work!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BarbaraC Comfortable and convenient
Comfortable room, but it took 2 days to get a new coffee pot when the one we had wouldn't work. Breakfast was usually cold even when we got there early. The "social hour" was a nice thought, but the food was boring and the beer and wine were all gone when we got there. It's a good hotel if you aren't into too many amenities.

From the Front Desk to the Cooks to Maintanance they all treat you like they want you to be comfortable during your stay. As a business traveler that stayed here for over 5 months, I really appreciated each persons personal comittment to make me feel at home. The breakfast bar was good and the dinner bar is a nice addition for someone that doesn't want to go back out in the evening. Great place for an extended stay!!!

I truly enjoyed my stay. I arrived at BWI 11:47 PM. I was picked up and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the exercise room and the ability of the staff to work with me on late requests (room cleaning on Sat and Sun). Thank you for making me feel at home. Rooms were clean and fresh. I am OCD about hotel rooms. I had no complaints. Beautiful. Keep up the good work. I will visit again.

The Staybridge was exactly what we needed. We travelled with our mother and the two bedroom suite was perfect for our situation. We had a great gathering area with separate rooms at night. Having the common area gave us a place to visit without having to find additional places for people to sit.

Staff was very helpful. Hotel clean and quiet.
Room amenities excellent. Did not have housekeeping on weekend--could have if requested before 5 pm but did not need. Appreciated the extra privacy so it really felt like home. I didn't need some one to make my bed!!
Will stay here next year for the Annapolis Boat Show.
Sarah at Ruby Tuesdays provided excellent take out!! Menu was in room-excellent anticipation of guests needs.
Hot breakfast was exceptional. Loved the waffle maker and it was constantly kept clean by staff.
