Recent guest reviews

We just stayed for a night, arrived late and left early. Nice room, good breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay.the staff were very friendly.food was mediocre and they could need a new toaster.

The hotel was nice and clean and friendly staff I would go back again

We had planned to stay in Gettysburg, PA for Thanksgiving but the arrival of our grandson allowed us to stay in Frederick, MD two days prior to Thanksgiving. When you first drive up to this hotel, adjacent to the local mall, it appears older in style. Having never stayed here before, I was a bit nervous as we walked in. The staff immediately greeted us and were very welcoming. The lobby is older but clean and very well maintained. We were told of the breakfast in the morning and given directions to our room. We were on the second floor and as we entered our room, we were pleased with the obviously updated decor and furniture. There was obvious signs of other renovation going on in our hallway but it was not disturbing to us in the least. The bed was one of the best beds I have ever slept in and we typically stay in Hilton and Marriot hotels. The pillows were also exceptional. The location was perfect for us as restaurants and the mall were next door and across the street. The hospital where our new grandson was born was only 12 minutes away. This was a very pleasant surprise and we will most definitely stay here again.

I know this area as I grew up in neighboring Montgomery County. I have moved away from the area but visit at least once a year, This location is convenient to my vacation locations of Baltimore, Carlisle, PA and Winchester, VA. The hotel is clean and quiet, They serve a complimentary breakfast with a variety of hot and cold choices that is excellent. They are also pet friendly but have not experienced any dogs barking during my stay. I highly recommend this hotel.

parking lot was trashy , bathrooms were a little dirty

It was comfortable. It was well located around shopping and restaurants, easy access to major highways. Aside from checking in, which was easy and the clerk was pleasant, the other 3 times I was at the front desk looking for assistance, I had to wait for someone to show up, or go looking for someone.

The hotel was very clean with complementary lemon water and coffee even when we arrived late in the evening. The breakfast was great too. Would stay here again!

The facility was very modern, clean and nice. The only deficiecy in the room was that there was only one comfortable place with good lighting for reading. The breakfast had all of the normal breakfast items plus omelettes, potatoes, grits,the facility and breakfast and sausage.

We were staying to spend a weekend in Frederick and experience the Pubs, Breweries and Wineries of the area. Also the river walk in the center of town. Hotel is close to downtown. A couple of miles. The amenities were good, the workout room is small and has very little, and the breakfast was a typical breakfast. Eggs, homefries and waffles. Overall staff was friendly and the hotel was clean, great value.

From the time I checked in, the front desk was the best I have ever encountered. They greet you very warmly and make you feel quite at home. They explain the hours for breakfast, location of restaurants and other sites in the area. The room was the cleanest I have seen with everything in very good operating condition. The room staff was exceptional and always willing to help. I would recommend to anyone that has occasion to visit Frederick to stay there.

Clean,comfortable, close enough where we needed to be the next day

It was alright, nothing too special. You get what you pay for

Comfortable and nice, they were remodeling while i was there- other than that it was fine.

Bare bones but clean. A bit dated decor, but efficient.

Very basic amenities, but clean and convenient. Close to mall and major roads.

Great!!! Would do again. Good breakfast..............

Great location and place to stay. Liked the location and eating and shopping in the area.

A disgrace to call this hotel a Country Inn & Suite No fridge No microwave Bed Light not plugged in Bath door would not close completely Shower controls out of reach for handy cap person

Halls dirty, only decaf in room, breakfast poorly organized, hot food cold, sliced fruit still frozen, computer from the dark ages, staff doesn't always answer phone, this hotel needs a lot of help. But, the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable.

We were staying to spend a weekend in Frederick and experience the Pubs, Breweries and Wineries of the area. Also the river walk in the center of town. Hotel is close to downtown. A couple of miles. The amenities were good, the workout room is small and has very little, and the breakfast was a typical breakfast. Eggs, homefries and waffles. Overall staff was friendly and the hotel was clean, great value.
