We just got back from a 4 night stay at Francis Scott Key Family Resort and were overall very happy with our stay. Our first impression of the room was that the room was a lot smaller than we are used to (we were in the Ranch, not in an end unit which are larger). We requested to upgrade to...

Thank you for your honest review! We are always trying to improve and investing back into our property and we make all improvements based on guest comments.

This is our 4th year staying at FSK and we simply loved it ! We brought the children and grandchildren ages 2 - 15, and had 5 rooms total. There is plenty for the children to do, so they were never bored. The staff was very courteous and helpful, the property was always tidy and , the rooms were clean...

We love when our guests hate to leave...it means we are doing our job! It is so gratifying watching our family reunions re-connect and enjoy each other. Life moves pretty fast so it is good to slow down and enjoy your vacation days! Sincerely Annemarie Dickerson Owner

In my opinion this place is over all a 9.5 out of 10. The rooms are clean, the staff were very helpful and friendly, and the cost was not bad considering the amenities they offer with your admission price. The pools and pirate ship were a big hit with my 2 year old son. We will be coming again next...

It is a perfect place for people traveling with children. The facilities are nice and I understand that next year they will be even better. Staff is family-like. I really have very little to say about this place that's not positive. This past weekend was my 3rd time in 2 years, and plan on returning before summer's end.

We only stayed one night but I wish we could have stayed longer. Tons of things for kids to do right on the property including several pools, movie night, mini golf.
