“Haven in a storm.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

We had just come out of the VOLT restaurant and it was snowing. With over an hour drive home it was great to know we had a place to stay just over a mile away. This was our first stay at the Best Western Historic Fredrick. The room we had was large and quiet. All the amenitys we needed to make our stay just like home. Breakfast in the morning and check out at 12:00. A little shopping and we were on our way. Can't wait to go back for another stay. The hotel is located close to great shopping and dining.The hotel staff made us feel at home. We ended up driving home on a beautiful day.

Room Tip: Suits are great!

We stayed one night for a dinner in Historic Frederick. Location is convenient, right off highway and close to Historic district. Room was clean. Bathroom is VERY small, but ok for one night. Could have used another pillow (only 3 on a king...). Check in staff was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is about what you would expect for the price, but again, got the job done for a one night stay. Would recommend to others.

Room Tip: We booked standard king on internet rate (very cheap). When we got there, were upgraded for free bec...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay. We pride ourselves making sure all our rooms are clean and comfortable. I realize the bathroom is small and apologize for this inconvenience. In about a month we are implementing a new bedding package for all our suites and are definitely adding more pillows. If you are ever in the area again we would love for you to stay in one of those rooms and meet your expectations.

My hockey team stayed at the Best Western Historic Frederick (Maryland) this past weekend. I am pleased to say that the staff was EXCELLENT. From the moment we checked in they had every detail handled for us. They were all professional and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay great.

Although only a one night stay, they treated us like guests that are frequent customers.

The hotel was clean and fresh and the rooms were spotless.

My hats off to DOS Paige Marchette and the entire staff.

My team will return.

BRAVO!

Mr. Preteroti,

Thank you so much for your feedback, I'm glad your team had a wonderful experience. I’m very fortunate to have my staff including Paige on my team. Without them things would certainly not run smoothly. We look forward to you returning next year and if there is anything I can assist you with please call me.

Room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was SMALL. Sink is inconveniently located in the entrance way to the room. We got this room on Best Western rewards point otherwise we would have been unhappy paying over $100 for it.

We stayed at the Best Western Historic Frederick this weekend for a little getaway after dinner at Volt. The problem with Frederick is there are no lodging options within walking distance of Market Street other than the two B&Bs downtown. We chose the Best Western because I thought we might be able to walk to dinner, but it's nearly 2 miles away so that wasn't possible. We were able to take a cab with no problem, but I would stay somewhere nicer next time now that I know we'll be taking a cab.

The room was alright but the walls were so thin I could hear our neighbor's entire conversation when he woke up at 8 am (we were hoping to sleep in). The room was too hot, even though our unit was off, the walls were thin, and the bathroom was tiny. It did the job of a place to sleep before and after dinner, but wasn't the date experience I was hoping for.

Overall it was a pretty standard Best Western, not too good not too bad, but I wish we had stayed somewhere more quaint and quiet.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room away from the highway but it was still too noisy. Ask for one with thicker...

Dear Guest,

I appreciate your feedback and would like to extend a apology for your stay here. We are the closes hotel to downtown just not walking distance. We do have rooms that are quieter and if you ever find yourself coming back to Frederick please allow me another opportunity to meet your expectations. Please call directly to the hotel and ask for me.

Thank You again and look forward to hearing from you.

The rooms are tiny. The bathroom is so tiny that it barely has space for the toilet and shower. The sink is outside the main bathroom area. Overall the hotel could use updating. The bed in our room was very soft, I am used to the reasonably new bedding in Marriott and Hilton affiliated hotels since most of them were redone a few years ago.
