I reserved a block of rooms at this hotel for my wedding and I was a little disappointed with the smell of the hotel and the noise of other travelers early in the morning. The bottom floor smells like cigarette smoke and the 'clean towels' in our room were not clean at all. The bathroom was really small but in general the room was not too bad.

Front desk check in was friendly and helpful, but the hotel is old and run down. The first room's window was open when we arrived and it would not close. We were pleasantly moved next door and it too, had a window that was slightly open. I did the best I could with it and said forget it, I didn't want to move again. The reason this was a problem, was that my mother and I were on the first floor directly adjacent to the parking lot on a warm night. I didn't want the hot air, the noise, or a potential break in, but we made do.
The hallways had a funny smell and the outside key card entry door worked about 30% of the time. The interior was worn and felt dirty. The fabric chair was stained as was the bed covering. I found a couple hairs in the bed as well. The worst part was the size of the bathroom. It was truly the smallest space I have ever tried to use for a shower and dry off. The problem was that all Frederick hotels seemed to be way over priced. This place was slightly over $100 in late May and the next closest in price was near $150. My advice would be to try a different town. I like the Best Western chain in the western US, but many of the eastern locations seem old and run down.

It is a nice hotel, with a better than average free breakfast too. The King bed I had was comfortable, and the room was spacious. The bathroom is TINY, but you don't actually stay in the bathroom. There is no elevator if you are on the second floor, so count those steps as exercise.

The weird thing at check-in was they could not find my reservation. The reason they couldn't find it was the manager had already checked someone in under my name/reservation earlier. It concerns me that they did that since you question if they check ID, or if you will get re-billed, etc. But everything turned out just fine! It just took a few minutes to straighten out.

I got a great deal through Priceline. The room was clean. It had a microwave, fridge and internet connection. The a/c worked well. The bathrooms were extremely small. They save space by having the sink outside. The breakfast was sufficient with the usual breakfast options except for make your own waffles. My children enjoyed the waffles. They also enjoyed the pool which nobody else seemed to use. The hotel is also very convenient to downtown and to the highways.
