We got married at a park in Frederick, and although home is only 20 miles away, we decided to spend the wedding night here to get away from the mess at home. We got a discount rate ($119), and were upgraded to a large suite, but it was still a lot more than I typically pay for lodging.
The hotel is obviously a bit older, maybe from the '70s, but that only shows in the architecture. The furnishings were new and clean, although the TV in our room was surprisingly small. The room they gave us was huge, but it was very dark as it had one small window overlooking the pool area, and no ceiling fixtures. We had a couch, armchair, 2-3 end tables and a fridge and microwave to go with the standard bureau, etc. The bed was big and very comfortable. Once you turned on all the lamps, it was decently bright in the room. The bathroom was clean, and had nice toiletries.
Having a room overlooking the pool area meant lots of noise until about 11, but it wasn't unbearable. We did enjoy using the pool and hot tub. Even though the hotel was full up, the pool was not terribly crowded. In the morning, the lady at the desk was kind enough to redo our bill so that we'd get points on the Holiday Inn card my wife had forgotten she had. All in all, I was satisfied, but the bill reminded me why I generally stay at the old roadside motels (which have all fallen victim to sprawl in Frederick).
