When guests stay at this charming Frederick hotel, that is just minutes from the historic downtown area, the options are limitless. Comfortable accommodations and convenient access to the most popular attractions in central Maryland, such as Fort Detrick, are guaranteed. Enjoy 118 rooms and suites with cable satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and laundry services. A free hot breakfast is offered each morning, the perfect start to a day of lounging by the outdoor seasonal pool, taking care of business in the meeting facilities, or keeping up with your regimen at the fitness center. Proximity to the Frederick Fairgrounds and B&O Railroad Museum® really make this Frederick hotel stand out. Head to the Gettysburg Battlefield or one of the many local wine festivals. The Celtic Festival is always a great time while the Sheep and Wool Festival is brimming with charm. Fredericks' In the Streets and the Great Frederick Fair cant be missed, while business travelers with Medimmune and Bechtel are close to HQ. From a meeting at Lockheed Martin to a lecture at Hood College, traveling is easy. Frederick, Maryland hotels feature a convenient location off three major highways including Routes 70, 270 and 15. However, this property is also near the Frederick Airport with a parking lot that can accommodate all sizes of trucks and buses. As the closest hotel to historic downtown Frederick, history buffs favor this property. All rooms have refrigerators and microwaves for longer stays, such as those who want to see all the Civil War battlefields along one of Maryland's scenic byway. Golf groups are accommodated with special rates, while access to the Maryland SoccerPlex & Discovery Sports Center is a breeze. Plus, when you are within walking distance to shopping and restaurants or would rather take advantage of the outdoor picnic and grilling area, a Frederick hotel stay feels more like staying with family.

Rough Stay

We asked for a non-smoking room and we somehow got bumped to a smoking room. The entire hallway smelled like smoke and the room had a funk about it. When we arrived there were no towels. My wife asked one of the maids walking around and the maid gave her 2 small, wet towels. Breakfast was sketchy, with yogurts meant to stay cold far away from the ice. It was billed as being in "Historic Downtown" and while it was a close cab ride to historic downtown it certainly wasnt walking distance.

Disappointing

Our room had no hot water. Even though we informed the desk twice, the problem was not addressed. In addition, we had reserved a room with two beds. We were given a handicapped room.

Roaches

We used this hotel as a stop off on our trip to Washington, DC. It was very near the interstate and fairly easy to find. First off the room may have been cleaned after the last guest stayed in it, but that last guest must have stayed there a month prior. The room was musty and there was a visible layer of dust in the shower. Then while walking down to the ice machine I noticed a cockroach sitting defiantly on the sign which points towards the rooms. The continental breakfast left something to be desired. There was the typical waffle maker and tower of bagels and pastry along with some defrosted frozen fruit. There was no fresh fruit or much selection of cold cereal (Fruit Loops or Raisin Bran). Overall not a great experience, but certainly not the worst I've seen.

Inexpensive and so-so

Room was so crowded with furniture that it was hard to manoever in. Bathroom was a cramped bath/shower and toilet. (The small sink was right in the room and it had very little shelf room.) Thank god we're not fat! Room seemed musty but was pretty clean. Air conditioning unit cycled on and off and when it was on, it blew an unpleasant cold breeze on any person sitting at the desk. We would have preferred one queen or king bed to two double beds, but the two double was all we could get. Walls were thin so that everything in the next room was loud and clear to us. On the good side, it was easy to get on the highway from the motel.

out of town..

It was the average hotel, Beds are like sleeping on the floor; just as hard. At breakfast, because is self service, you could not find what you need it... but all around, you can`t beat the price... it is a good hotel to spend a night, not a week. that`s for sure... ah..!! by the way... bring some ear-plugs because you will hear everything around; even when someone sneeze 3 doors away from your room...

clean and comfy

Parking outside near your room and use your key for access into upper floors. Bed was comfortable but needs more pillows. We slept good. A little noise from cars outside. Great value.

Convenient, clean, nice hotel.

We stayed here while in town for dinner at Volt. The hotel was conveniently located, rooms were clean, continental breakfast was a plus. This is the standard Best Western room you would expect.
