Best Western Historic Frederick

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here on a recent getaway to Western Maryland. It was a good location for what we were doing (Antietam, Maryland National Golf and downtown Frederick). This hotel is not in walking distance to downtown but it is a very short Lyft or Uber (about $8). People were nice and room was fine. Beds a super squishy, so if you have back problems, that may be an issue. Bathroom is big enough for a child, so if you are a big person, that may be an issue. Bedspread had some dirt on it but sheets looked clean!

Rooms were small, outdated and smelled of mildew; bathroom not clean. Hotel is desperately in need of all all around update.

Needed a place for an overnight event nearby. This was a great deal and convenient to the venue. Hotel was clean, although a bit dated. There is not elevator, bust a set of stairs to the upstairs rooms. Staff was very nice. My room was a simple king room. The bed was VERY hard so I didn't sleep well, but there was cable and coffee available so it wasn't the worst thing in the world. Ample parking lot out front.

Room was very cleen...spotless...everything worked...Ac was awesome...TV fridge was awesome...luved this place...was very quiet as well...well staffed no problems whatsoever...

The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The facility is older but they were doing renovations on it during our stay. The breakfast was on par with every hotel breakfast and overall the room was fine. It's not the nicest hotel around but it is close to everything and if we are back in the area we would likely stay again.

We have always stayed here close to everything we need Last stay we were there because my mother was ill. She passed away and we ended our trip early. They refunded the nights we did not use

Great hotel~Highly recommend. The staff were very professional but made an effort to know me.

We booked 4 rooms for my husband and me and 3 of our adult children to be close to a wedding on a Saturday evening. It was a handy hotel for that purpose. There is nothing fancy about it, and I personally don't like when the sink is not in the bathroom, but for the price and the reason for using it, it was very suitable. Two things: Our keys kept having to be redone, I guess because of their sensitivity to the phones we had them near or credit cards, and the other thing was the parking lot was fairly empty when we left for the wedding and packed when we got back around 11:30!

The hotel was very comfortable and extremely quiet. Great breakfast.

No complaints. We were on the Journey Through Hallowed Ground and our time at the motel was brief but pleasant.

This hotel was good for the money for 1 night. Friendly staff, clean rooms.

Good location, good breakfast although crowded. Parking was a bit of a problem because it was so crowded

The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and helped our large group get a shuttle van driver. Overall, this hotel was a good value. For some reason there are no hotels in downtown Frederick. This one was the closest, but not within walking distance.

This hotel is an outstanding value. The staff were very knowledgeable about the area and made great recommendations. DJ went out of his way to help us with a problem we were having uploading a video file that needed to be aired that day. All the staff were over and above.

Overall my fiancée had a wonderful stay here. It was priced cheaper than some of the other hotels in the area, which can be a bad thing sometimes. The staff were kind, and the room was clean. Those are my 2 most important aspects.

Just spent one night but had a very restful experience

Nice,clean and safe, plus a good free breakfast. Close to the highways so easy to get around. There is a Weiss grocery market and a couple of restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay there again.

that's how i would describe it, just fine. not too much, not too little. we were only sleeping there and it was for just one night. the toilet ran all night and the alarm was set to go off by the previous guest, so those were minor annoyances. all together, just fine.

Pleasant hotel, nice room, comfortable beds. Not much to choose from as far as local restaurants, so we didn't have the best dinner, but we were just passing through.

Very friendly cooperative staff. Clean room. Convenient Industrial park location
