“Great Way to Start the Holiday week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

We were traveling "Home for the Holidays" as the saying goes and needed a "pet friendly" hotel. This is the first time we have traveled with our new puppy and did not know how far our dog would travel, So making reservations ahead of time was not really an option. With less than 4 hours to our destination, I used Booking.com and found this hotel. Everything went like clock work. This is the first time we have stayed, not only at this particular Country Inn & Suites but any Country Inn & Suites. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel conditions are clean and well maintained, even the beds were very comfortable. If you are looking for a hotel that is not "full service" (ie. restaurant, bar, etc.) this is the place. But they do have a free breakfast similar ot Marriott Courtyard. We would recommend this hotel to any of my friends or family. Thank you Country Inn & Suites for starting our holiday week in pleasant and stress free manner. Happy Holidays!

Room Tip: We started o nthe ground floor and the room was a average size. 2 quuen beds, not much noise.

This hotel was in a great location, right next to the mall. We live in a rural community in Virginia and came to Frederick for some Christmas Shopping. Rate was low enough for us to feel like we got a good bang for our buck. Beds are comfy, room was clean, staff was friendly!

The only drawback was that while we were eating breakfast, another guest brought their dog into the breakfast area. I am not sure of the health dept regulations in Maryland, but I assume that (other than service dogs) are not supposed to be in public food areas. On top of which, the dog was barking and disturbing other guests in the room. While this is mostly a compliant about the inconsiderate person with the dog, I feel like the hotel is accountable for allowing the animal in the public breakfast area and wish they would have made the woman remove the dog for the comfort of their other guests.

Overall, a good nights stay. Love the hotel, and don't mind pets: just not in the bfast room!

Stayed December 2014

Thank you for your comments. It is our policy not to allow pets in the breakfast area unless it is a guide dog. I will speak to the staff and make sure they understand this is not acceptable on our property. Thank you for informing me of this incident.

The room was small but very clean. The breakfast was worth the price of the room. The staff were very nice and extremely helpful. I would stay there again. The walls are a little thin so if you are a light sleeper you may want to call the desk if you have a loudmouth next door like I did. Not the hotel's fault at all, just poor common decency on the part of my neighbor.

Great hotel, large bed that was very comfortable, great breakfast, clean, would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Hotel was recently remodeled which looked great. The front desk staff was very pleasant and made sure all of our needs were addressed.

The check in went very quick, the breakfast was a normal hotel breakfast, the afternoon cookies were great.
The staff was very attentive, they did a great job of taking care of my room.
The front office knew the location and recommended several places to eat.

I stayed here with my Husband, son and his girlfriend over the Thanksgiving holiday as we were visiting family in the area. This hotel was very clean, the staff were friendly, the breakfast was good and they are pet friendly. The bed was comfortable and all appliances worked. The town of Frederick is very quaint, has loads of history and good shopping and dining opportunities. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

short walk to the MARC commuter train, shops, stores & all food , etc. Easy on- Easy off the highway. Having the ability to accommodate one's individual needs- no matter the time of night or day, is very important when maintaining balance. For those of us with medical conditions- this is often essential.
