Best Western Parkside Inn
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Frankfort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This hotel is a nice place to stay if you are in town for business. I was only there one night, but I didn't have any complaints. The location is close to shopping and close to attractions in Frankfort but I liked that it is not right downtown.

Stayed here for two nights. The pool (indoor and outdoor combined) was of a good size and that is a real plus point for the Parkside. Unfortunately, the pool could do with some attention from the cleaning staff as there was some debris both in and surrounding the pool and although not a major issue was a little off-putting. Breakfast was average. Staff were very, very pleasant.

Previous reporters have mentioned refurbishment. We found it difficult to believe this as our room, especially the bathroom, was a bit tired as was the decor in other parts e.g. the pool building.

Overall not a bad stay.

On a recent business trip I stayed at the Best Western in Franfort ,Kentucky. The hotel is situated on a hill overlooking a main expressway to the right, and several chain clothing and dinning venues to the right. The seventies architecture clearly dates the hotel however the many upgrades show great care was taken to modernize the lobby and room. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and my room was equipped with the basic amenities to include a sofa sleeper, refrigerator and microwave. The location was ideal for shopping and eating and only 45 minutes from the Lexington airport. The indoor pool was large and well kept and with the added feature of a sliding glass door that when open, let to the outdoor pool. Very retro, and cool. If business ever takes me back to Frankfort Kentucky, I’ll be staying at the Best Western Parkside Inn.

Room Tip: Get room on second floor overlooking the pool.

Rooms seem to have been updated but for the better. I stayed on the bottom floor which has two doors one opening directly to parking lot outside and one to inside of hotel. Probably the "best" Best Western I have stayed at in quite some time. A def hidden gem and I would recommend to anyone travelling through the area for business or pleasure.

This hotel was clean, Comfortable and affordable on my husbands retired government rate. I travel back and forth to Chicago at least once every six weeks from Florida!!!!! The food at the breakfast could be more choices. More protien choices for gastric bypass patients and less carb choices.

Very clean, very kind staff. We stayed two nights and after getting in late on a Friday we declined room service Saturday AM, the front desk called in the afternoon to make sure we didn't need anything from room service before they left for the day. Clean pool. After having visited a couple other area hotels for business meetings were very happy we picked Best Western for our stay. The breakfast was fine, my partner really enjoyed the biscuits and gravy. For the price we paid we could not have asked for anything more in a hotel.

This was the third time I have stayed here on trips driving from Florida to Michigan, and I think one of the best overnight places around. Building sits up on a hill, far enough away from the freeway to be pretty quite, rooms are good size, and (for an older hotel) very well kept up. Very clean and very comfortable beds. Front desk is staffed with very pleasant and helpful people making check in/out very easy. Breakfast was excellent and there are many restaurants close by...and not just fast food. Highly recommend this place for the weary traveler.

Room Tip: First floor is great, entrances both from the parking lot and the inside hall.
