We are following government guidelines & industry best practices
To our guests, those planning a stay in Annapolis, and our friends:
We have been working hard to ensure the safety of our guests and ourselves. We would like to share what we are doing to keep you safe while visiting our property. We are a small, family owned business, we live on site and we have always been very meticulous about the cleaning and disinfecting of our home, guest rooms and common areas.
You can read our guest comments in Trip Advisor & Google . We have received overwhelmingly positive reviews in the two years since we implemented these new guidelines.
We consult many resources such as CDC, OSHA, Lodging & Restaurant association guidelines and best practices from other small lodging establishments. We are signatories of the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) “Safe Stay” guidelines. in addition we are closely monitoring and following national, state and local advisories.
On this page we are sharing many of our procedures so that, along with your own safe practices, we can continue to avoid the virus and have a restful and fun stay at the Flag House Inn, and around Annapolis.
2022 NOTE: With the variants coming and going, we have been adjusting the policies up and down and back up again, and down again, based on local health reporting numbers on cases and positivity. We’ll advise of current state of our policies at check in.
We only use washable bedding, everything on the bed goes through the laundry in between every guest stay.
Plastic covers on remotes, Room “decluttered”, all high touch surfaces (doorknobs, light switches, table tops, blinds, lamps, keys, etc) wiped down.

Air purifiers in each room and larger units in common areas. These are advanced models, with 3 or 4 stage true HEPA filtration, the highest standard for air cleaning. They change the air 4-5x per hour. We run these continuously in guest rooms and the dining room. We open the windows as often as possible too! These efforts are intended to remove viruses, bacteria & allergens.
