Where to Stay When You’re House-Hunting in Maryland

Relocating Crofton homebuyers nearly always ask for my recommendation on places to stay during their house-hunting visit.  That’s a tricky question to answer, however, since not all people like the same thing.

All business –

If you want to focus on house-hunting, and convenience to my office is your #1 criteria, Bowie is your best bet.  In addition to the Comfort Inn Conference Center at the intersection of Route 3 and 50, there’s also a Hampton Inn (across from Bowie New Town Centre near the Bowie Regal Movie Theater), and Towneplace Suites by Marriott (located behind the Bowie New Town Centre).  These facilities are located about 5 minutes from my office, so not an extra minute will be wasted on the road in getting down to business!

DOD lodging for military families –

Check out the Navy Gateway Inn at the USNA (photo), the Navy Lodge at Naval Station Annapolis, the Air Force Inn at Andrews AFB, or Abrams Hall at Fort Meade.  These facilities often seem to be booked well in advance, but it’s worth checking with them for cancellations.  All of them are within a half hour of my office in Crofton MD, but there are many other DOD temporary lodging options in the greater DC-Baltimore area.


Combine house-hunting with a get-away –

View of Annapolis from EastportIf you’re hoping to find a home AND experience the ambiance of Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay area, I’d choose Annapolis over D.C. or Baltimore because it’s closer to Crofton – less than a half hour. There is seemingly no end to the list of accommodations and restaurants in our state capitol, from Bed & Breakfast options to the Historic Inns of Annapolis and a whole menu of franchise hotels. 

I haven’t seen any comprehensive online list of all these options, but don’t worry… when we schedule your house-hunting trip, I’ll give you some specific suggestions that match your criteria.
