“Would stay again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

When you look at the pictures on the web site, it seems that the hotel is located in a quite spot until you get there. Not so. There is so much traffic, you have to wait for a few minutes to drive out on the street if you are leaving during rush hour. Now for the hotel. Good news, the hotel is very quiet if you ask for a room overlooking the parking lot. Very nice lobby, and there is a water cooler. Do not get back to the hotel after 10, parking is limited and you may have to park on the street beside the hotel. The walls and the floors need more padding. We had a very nice room, but someone was walking so hard on the floor above us that the room seemed to vibrate. But, the room was so nice that we tolerated the noise. The rooms are very big and I felt like I was in a mini suite, which was very nice, good size for a wheelchair person. The reservation desk staff was very nice and helpful. Very large tv and nice picture. The food was not so great, even though some people thought so. The eggs were crumbly, the link sausage was not brown. We only ate there one day out of a four day stay. We found an excellent restaurant called College Park Diner, which I highly recommend. Read my review on the diner. There are a lot of places to eat in walking distance of the hotel, because it's a college town (Maryland University) and security, so I felt safe. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again.

We have always struggled when it was time to drive to the University to bring my son to school or pick him up. The hotels on rte 1 are so run down and the Marriott on campus us always booked and sooo expensive.
This Best Western is GREAT. Out room was HUGE (402) with 2 queen beds. The bathroom was spotless and so pretty! The bath tub was deep and clean...i even took a soak!
The bed was comfy and although there is noise from rte 1, you can leave the fan on all night and it is masked.
The front dest was great and friendly. I parked no problem although the lot is a little small, we got a spot.
They have a really cool electronic key system where you just pass your key over a pad and viola! you can open the door.
I really have no complaints or criticisms! We will be back!!

This is a brand new hotel and has a very helpful staff. It is the closest hotel to college (Univ. of Maryland) and was priced so that staying an extra night was a no brainer! It was nice to have a complimentary breakfast and not have to worry about stopping off to get something eat as soon as you get in the car!

We have stayed at the Marriott and various other local hotels while visiting our son at school and tried out the new Best Western and were very impressed. Great location, inviting and personable staff, well appointed large rooms with 42 inch TVs and top end bathroom fixtures. Did notice that traffic can be noisy in the front of the hotel. Excellent value for the price.

Room Tip: High rooms in the back will be quieter

We found every nuance of this hotel to be spotless and presentable .. the room we had was open..high ceilings , well appointed, and clean.. the bathroom was roomy.. the counters a faux granite , the HVAC simple and functional..the bed super comfortable... the TV awesome..and the satellite dish comprehensive if a bit overwhelming.. the desk computers were working fine.. we printed some info for our day trips, the fitness room was a good size... breakfast was very good... and we got great service from the employees...all in all... an "A+"... we definitely plan on returning as this hotel makes sights in DC close at hand.. we vsisted the National Zoo.. and the National Arboretum which were about 30 mins or so away on local streets through town...

Nice, clean, small accommodations in College Park. Best spot for a quick trip to visit son at UMD. It is located just a minute from the entrance to UMD. Value was great since I was given "Grand Opening" special. I wish I would have booked a room for family weekend since it is already completely full.
