Best Western Parkside Inn
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Frankfort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We stayed at Parkside Inn after a weekend in Nashville because we wanted to visit a few of the distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. We heard of the hotel through another Trip Advisor recommendation, and we're so glad we found it. It was very close to the distilleries (Woodford Reserve and Wild Turkey, in particular) and it was a great stay. There was a really friendly and helpful woman who checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed. She told us to come back that evening for freshly baked cookies in the reception - a small but DELICIOUS touch that added to the charm. We cooled down in the indoor/outdoor pool that was right across from our hotel room (yet no noise carried over) and our room was massive. We were in the suite in room 250 and we had more room than we knew what to do with. Would definitely recommend for 2 couples or a family, the pull out couch was very comfortable and so was the king bed in the other room. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and felt it was great value. Would for sure go back!

The appearance of the hotel is very pleasing. It sits above and away from the busy streets. The whole outlook of the hotel is that of a large house in a park-like setting:very calming and relaxing when we turn into the driveway. The room we were in is roomy, clean; beds are comfortable. It is very quiet and we slept very well there. Breakfast includes scramble eggs, waffles, biscuits with gravy, yogurt and fruits, plus cereals, bread etc. It would be nice to include sausage since gravy and biscuits are served. It is also better to provide fresh fruits instead of the pre-packaged fruits that always taste kind of sour and stale. Still, it is a bargain to stay there. We definitely will stay there again when we travel through there.

I found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable. The room had a door leading to the parking lot and one on the other side that led to the inside hall. This was convenient for loading/unloading the car and for getting ice from the inside machine and getting to the breakfast room. Breakfast included biscuits and gravy, waffles, cereal, toast/bagels/muffins, juice/coffee/tea/milk, a basic fruit selection and so forth. It was a good place to stop for the night.

We very much enjoyed our stay in the Parkside Hotel. We were touring around northern Kentucky after our college reunion in Ohio. This was the best motel on the trip. We wished we could have had such nice facilities on every stop.

This is our groups third time staying here. We choose it for the excellent experience we get. Last time we stayed was 3 years ago and since then the place has gone thru major updating and is even a better place. I'm sorry I didn't catch the name of the person working the front desk, but he was more than helpful with our motorcycle group. Telling us the scenic and back roads to go as well as having routes printed off for us in the morning. When we go to Frankfort this is the only place that comes to mind and will stay at.

Stayed at Best Western twice in the last month. Front desk staff was very nice. Room was clean. Breakfast had several choices. I stayed here twice lately for work, and had great staff service both times. However there is no elevator, so you have to lug your luggage up the stairs, and I didn't have a fridge in my room.
But staff was really great!
