Clean beds, clean hallways, good air conditioning, friendly staff, and easy to find location made this a nice place to stay. I would probably stay here again, but it had a few small glitches. When we arrived around 8:30 pm we had to wait for about 15 minutes before the desk staff showed up. There was a sign on the front desk that they would be "right back", but it took a while. Our first room had a nasty mold problem around the base of the refrigerator, but I went back to the desk and got another room that was fine, They also took a little off my bill for my trouble. Breakfast was good, with a nice variety including waffles. Really, no major complaints, but things were just not quite as top notch as some places. But all the basics were there, so I think I would stay here again.

Comfortable, clean rooms. Good breakfast available. This hotel ticked all the boxes. Perfect place to break the trip a road trip to DC. Staff were friendly & efficient. Nothing spectacular but a great budget hotel. Interconnecting rooms make it perfect for a family.

Enjoyed the facility staff were friendly and the interior and exterior of the building were well kept. In the king bed suites they made the bathrooms too small to likley accomodate the king beds. Overall, enjoyed the stay

My daughter and I drove from Ohio to Baltimore for an O's game and after not being able to find anything in Baltimore, we found this Best Western that was on our way back in Frederick. I gave it 4 out of 5 simply because I thought the price was fine and it was a solid stay. It's not the most elegant or thrilling place, but our room was very clean, staff was nice, and the area was fine. My daughter even enjoyed the pool for a little before we checked out, which is quite small so I suppose it could get overcrowded. This is a fine place to stay for a night or two.

Add a pool and it would be perfect. Staff were great. Clean & comfortable. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Highly recommend the biscuits & Gravy.
Great location, near the highway. Proved to be a good midpoint between Gettysburg & DC for us.

PRO: The help at the front desk was terrific. The second night we were there the hotel had 3 large (25+) groups, and everything ran very smoothly. The pool was adequate. CON: The bathroom was tiny, really tiny. The sink was in an awkward place in the room.

Thank you for being our guest and for taking the time to share your experience at Best West Frederick. We appreciate your comments on our friendly staff and swimming pool. There were a few things we looked at changing when we acquired this property; one thing was adding extra bathroom space. To make any noticeable difference in bathroom space would have cut into a lot of the actual room space. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have been caused. We hope you will consider us when you are in the area again.

Room overall was fine, bed comfortable, and A/C not too noisy. On the down side, the bathroom (with sink across the entry area) was tiny. Bathing small children in there would be really difficult. Pool was clean and nice although not big enough for more than 4 or 5. Breakfast was very nice. If you want a little exercise you can walk in the neighborhood. Place is close for driving to shops and to historic area.
