    « Beautiful Decor/Clean and Comfortable Room »

    Stay Here! The room was extremely clean, nice, and the décor is pleasing to the eye. Matches up to the big chain hotels and then some! Bed is large and comfortable; Bathroom is extremely clean and has everything you need; Television is a large flat screen with many station options!

    « Great location to the university »

    Room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was better than most. Would definitely return to this hotel. Has an exercise facility as well as a business center. Bed was comfortable which is very important to my wife and I.

    « Just right »

    We wanted a decent hotel at a decent price within a decent distance from DC (National Mall). This hotel was perfect- very clean, free breakfast, affordable (especially compared to downtown DC), and conveniently close to Metro station (less than 2 miles). The Metro ride should normally be about 25 mins (we had issues going and coming back) into DC. I would definitely stay here again for a DC trip.

    « Meets high expectations »

    Large, clean, comfortable room with king bed, sofa, desk, fridge, microwave. Good supply of good quality towels. Shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion provided. Good location for University and with near access to Beltway. Friendly, helpful, and professional staff. Above average breakfast. Not a lot of parking, but enough and somewhat protected (in rear of building). Would recommend and would stay again.

    Great location with excellent food resources nearby. Especially accessible to the University of Maryland. Friendly staff. I really enjoyed the breakfast - eggs and sausage were hot. I always want better quality tea, but otherwise a good stay.

    « More modern than other options in College Park »

    The Best Western is the newest property in College Park, although soon they will have some competition. The location on Rt 1 is very convenient to the University of Maryland. Even though the hotel is on a highly-trafficked major artery between DC and Baltimore, we could not hear any road noise at all. The room was very nice furnished. The parking lot is a little small, but fortunately there is another lot available at night immediately adjacent - both lots behind the hotel.

    « surprisingly pleasant »

    Hotel was surprisingly pleasant. Large room, clean and well-equipped. Breakfast was solid, obviously nothing to write home about. One caveat for those suffering from noise: make sure you request a room NOT facing Baltimore Ave. The hotel is just off the main road and it can get pretty noisy. Apparently, only the double queen rooms face Baltimore Ave, while those with a king bed face a quieter area.

    « Not your standard Best Western »

    Best Best Western I've ever stayed at. The hotel seems new and was clean. The king size bedroom was very nice with a sofa, coffee table, large tv, coffee/tea, refrigerator, and microwave. The pillows however were very small and worn out and not your standard size sleeping pillows. Also, the wifi didn't work in my room, but there are 2 computers on the entrance floor and FREE use of printer! The breakfast was also very good.

    « No parking »

    the hotel was wonderful, if you did not drive up to it..there was no where to park to check in, and then only maybe 20 spots to park. We were offered a permit to put in the window to allow us to park on the street somewhere (there was none) so they told us to park behind a service station if there was a spot..We left the next day...

    « Nice staff, great hotel, perfect location for us! »

    We stayed at this location to attend a University of Maryland football game. First time we have been to the area. The gal at the front desk was friendly and helpful. We needed directions...a gentleman in the lobby walked outside and pointed out where we need to go. He was also friendly and helpful. Turns out he was the owner! We would stay here again. The lobby was nice, the room was clean and big. The TV was great. the breakfast was nice...lots of little touches to make this location a step up form others.

    « Very friendly staff/CLEAN and comfy! »

    The front desk staff were very friendly, and helpful. The room was very clean. The breakfast area was also clean. I used the workout room, and the machines were in good working order. I will stay here again when visiting my daughter at UMD.

    « Better than expected in this area. »

    This hotel was very clean and had spacious rooms. The bathroom DOES have an exhaust fan, most don't anymore. It was the nicest Best Western we've stayed at. We were told it had been renovated within three years ago. It had a large Samsung flat TV. It was easy to find. The hotel staff was nice too.

    « Clean, Comfortable and Friendly »

    When I first walked in, I was immediately greeted by friendly staff. My room was not ready, which was my fault, for I got there earlier, but I didn't have to wait long. As a member I made reservations over a week prior, and I specifically requested that my room be on the ground floor, and mine was a floor down from the roof. I had some minor problems with my room like bulbs burnt out, bathroom vent on non stop, and the most surprising thing I have ever seen, no hot water in the sink. Further investigation reveals under the counter a hot water reducer. I had to fill the ice bucket with hot water from the tub to the sink to shave. The beds were very nice and clean, but a little on the hard side for me. As for parking, it's obvious that size of the parking lot can not accommodate the number of guest at this motel. Found some cars parking on the side street. Breakfast was very good. I would definitely stay here again, for it was definitely clean, friendly and comfortable.

    « Very nice hotel!!! »

    On our trip to the Washington DC area we decided to book at this Best western hotel, we were not disappointed. It was a clean newer hotel and mostly all the staff we dealt with were friendly and very cooperative. The hotel is close (about 1 -2 miles)to the College Park Metro which brings us directly to Washington DC, about a 22 minutes ride. Rooms spacious and clean the beds confortable, the complimentary breakfast no different than the other Best western. Wifi worked fine.

    « Better than expected. »

    Quick visit for orientation at UMD. Very pleasant stay, from the staff at the front desk to the super clean room. Parking is a little tight but immediately upon asking we were given a parking pass for the street along the side of the hotel. Overall great stay. Will stay here again!

    « Dropping our youngest at college »

    We just completed our third stay at the Best Western in College Park, MD and once again it was a pleasure. The hotel is brand new with large, spotless rooms and excellent service. They also have a decent free breakfast which is restocked very efficiently. The beds are super comfortable and the decor very cozy. It is a perfect place to stay while visiting your college student and the secret is out because it must be reserved well in advance.

    « Clean and Comfortable »

    Our room was clean and comfortable. The HDTV actually had HD programming (unlike many hotels that have HDTVs but don't subscribe to HD programming). This hotel was very convenient to where we were playing baseball. The only hint I can give you is ask for an odd numbered room. The even numbered rooms are on the front of the hotel which is very noisy due to the main road. The odd numbered rooms face the parking lot at the rear.

    « Never again »

    Worst Best Western ever. Staff was disagreeable and unhelpful on check in. Upon check out, there were no receipts as they had no working printer. Bathroom fan could not be turned off and ran noisily all night. After arriving back home, was notified by credit card company that someone tried to used my card # to charge over $1100.00 online at Home Depot for pick-up in VA. Hmmmm.

    « Clean, comfortable,great location »

    We were in the area to take a tour of the University of Maryland. This hotel was very close to the school, easy to get to, and a great value. The fitness room is always nice to have when you are away from home. Having breakfast provided is one less thing to worry about, and very convenient.

    « Clean and convenient »

    It was a small motel but it met our needs. We were visiting the University of Maryland and it was convenient. It was close to many restaurants as well as to the college. The price was very reasonable.

    « like coming home »

    I found this hotel in 2014 when taking my daughter for her college tour. fell in love with the simplicity, cleanliness and staff. another guest agreed this was the best kept secret. now i'm sure the secret is out because it's harder to get a room when we need one.

    « New hotel near University of Maryland College Park campus »

    I live in College Park in a small house without a guest room. When my mother in law comes to town, we call one of the many local hotels. In the past, I always booked the Inn and Conference Center at the University of Maryland, operated by Marriott, for her. They were all booked this trip,so I decided to try this one year old property on the US Route 1 strip just north of campus. It worked out very well for her. Very big, clean, modern room with a good bathroom and breakfast daily. She had a first floor room that added a sense of security with no reason to use the elevator. Parking immediately behind the building is free. Well priced. I will be calling this hotel again the next time I need a guest room.

    « Nice size rooms but terrible parking »

    The nice part of the hotel is that the room we stayed in was very comfortable. It was clean and modern. The pillows were very small - put we brought our own pillows anyway. The breakfast was also very good. It offered scrambled eggs, sausages, hash browns and a pancake station. Also the traditional breads, danish, yogurt, cereal, etc. The only drawback was the lack of seating. My main concern was the lack of parking - there is none! You have to get there pretty early in the day to get one. I"m very surprised that this new hotel does not have enough space. We were told to park around the curb - some people had to park on the actual side road.

    « Nice place on busy street! »

    They accepted our 3 hrs early arrival.It is a Newer Best WEstern.The room was large and nice. The bed is good , covered with many pillows of a very small size. Our room was clean.No parking at the hotel at night available . Across the street from several fast food restaurants to go by feet. Good breakfast!

    « Another sleepless night »

    Let's begin with the plus: it's a nice room. Reasonably large, with a refrigerator and microwave. McD's is nearby, as is a 7-Eleven for a snack or a soda. Baltimore Avenue is busy but quiet at night. But... Those pillows! They are for either end of a sofa. They are not sleeping pillows. They are 15inches X 15 inches, hard and thick - just like sofa pillows. Will you please get real sleeping pillows? I found them very uncomfortable. The bed is hard, errrr, firm, but OK. Well, if you can't sleep, at least breakfast begins at 6:30am. The scrambled eggs are good. I don't know how that bug got into the orange juice - at least I saw it before I drank it.

    « Near Perfection »

    I understand this is probably a new hotel so things should be near perfection. But let's be honest, many companies open up and standards and being unorganized is more common than most think.This hotel had it going on! The I's were dotted and the T's crossed, they simply operated on all cylinders . We wanted to be close to Metro so we could get into Washington easy:) Would I walk to Metro,no, it was just to long on a "hot" day. Besides, you can park for $5:) Breakfast was good:) The only tough thing was parking, but we still got a spot every night:) and we didn't get in most nights until 9:30pm. If I could suggest two things to the hotel staff:) 1. Bathroom tub floors are slickkkkkkkk 2. Sleeves for the hot coffee 3. Use this location for training all your other Mgrs. in the chain:) near perfection

    « Best Stay Ever! »

    We have stayed in a lot of hotels and this one was the best yet! It is clean and has the most comfortable beds. The TV was huge and the layout of the room with the king sized bed was perfect. This hotel is in the perfect location for getting to the University. We had no problems with parking during the three nights we stayed there. All of the employees were fantastic! When I called a week before we drove out they were so helpful with giving advice about the metro and were able to answer all of my questions. Upon our arrival through our checkout everyone we came across was friendly and provided customer service that exceeded my expectations! Breakfast was full of options and great coffee. Speaking of food, Denny's is right across the street which makes for convenient lunch or dinner. There are also a lot of other restaurant choices within walking distance. Next time we are in Maryland we will stay here! Thank you to all of the amazing staff!

    « Not the best location »

    We read a lot of reviews of this property before booking. It was unfortunate that we arrived late which probably didn't help our overall impression of the lodge, however it is most definitely not an area that we would like to walk in after dark. The room we had was more than adequate but we chose to check out a day earlier than planned to move to a better area. Would recommend for a night stop over en-route to somewhere but not for a longer stay.

    « Excellent location for day travels into Washington D.C. »

    We stayed here because of the location to the train station that we took into D.C. each day. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The entire hotel was immaculate and had stylish decor. Our room was very clean and had a mini fridge and had good shampoo/conditioner. The beds were firm and very comfortable. The continental breakfast had eggs, home-fries, sausage and other bagels, muffins etc and with excellent coffee too. The women maintaining the breakfast area kept everything cleaned, stocked and was very friendly.

    « Clean and super cute »

    Nice spacious rooms and outside has little manicured gardens. Exxon next door had snacks which was convenient! I would avoid the Denny's across the street; we went on a quiet Sunday night and got dirty silverware in a gross booth with trash on the floor. Only issue was while the BW staff were helpful, they were not always at the desk. We had to call the hotel to get someone out from their hiding place :) Tip: Metro garage is off Paint Branch Avenue from Baltimore Avenue. Staff never thought to let us know and we were on the wrong side of the tracks driving in circles. GPS takes you to the "walk-up" side.

    « Very Nice Hotel! »

    Very nice hotel - immaculately clean. Rooms nicely appointed. Very quiet. Staff friendly & courteous. Amazing selection of TV channels. 2 minor gripes - the free WiFi was very slow, and the breakfast room had insufficient seating (only about 20 seats or so). The free buffet breakfast, while not extensive, was tasty & kept well stocked. Right down the street from the University of Maryland main campus, so many restaurants, bars, etc. in the area. Microwaves & refrigerators in rooms.

    « Top Notch in all categories »

    Although all the employees were helpful; the gentleman there for the late shift was very nice and was very genuine in his response to our questions. He offered to set a wake-up call, and ask if there was anything we needed to make our stay more comfortable. (This was about 11:30PM). We were exhausted after traveling all day and 2 baseball games for a tournament our son was in. He was a bright spot for 2 weary travelers. The beds were very comfortable and the room was spotless. We especially liked the water cooler down stairs (You could also get hot water for tea). We got a drink upon going to our room and leaving. Never saw this feature in a hotel. Great Job, Very Nice.

    « No parking »

    Hotel is new so it's clean and modern. Nice enough. Low rating is because they don't have enough parking for all the guests. If you get in after the lot is full, you have to go into the office and get them to give you a parking pass to park on the street around the corner. Said street is very steep and narrow and you have to park going up hill. No happy about having to park on a city street.

    « Comfortable and convenient »

    We stayed at the Best Western Plus for one night. The accommodations are very clean and comfortable, and the staff was pleasant and friendly. The only negative, and it's a small one, is the breakfast area, which is small. We were able to get a table but others had to eat in the lobby.

    « Comfortable Hotel, Convenient Location »

    I stayed at this hotel during a work trip to University of Maryland. I found it very comfortable and convenient. I appreciated having a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in my room. I liked the location, within walking distance to the University and places I liked to eat. It's close to some pretty walking/biking trails, and 1.5 miles from the Green line metro stop. The only negative thing I have to say is that I had some credit card receipts and a metro pass removed from my room during the day while I was away.

    5
    « Nice Place »

    Good value and nice place to stay. Near work place and new apartment for me so convenience was important. Would stay again. I stay at a lot of BW properties and I thought this place was pretty good overall. Room was clean and comfortable and front desk folks were attentive and knowledgeable

    « Convenient Location »

    My son was graduating from Trinity Washington University so I picked this hotel because it was close to the University. The hotel was very clean and the customer service was AWESOME! I would recommend this hotel to friends and family. The staff was very polite, helpful, and genuinely caring. I never had any problems with staying here. The breakfast was not too bad but they had a big variety of food items. They offered military discount so the room was very affordable considering they had several different colleges and universities hosting graduations that weekend. I would stay again if I visit the area in the near future. I like the one way in and one way out exit to keep congestion of traffic under control. My only issue with this hotel is that the bed was too hard. I ended up sleeping on the sofa and it was very comfortable. If you love a firm mattress it will really work but I'm a ?Mama Bear? and like a firmer bed with soft pillows. My favorite thing about this hotel is they have Direct TV so I was able to look at a variety of shows during my downtime. That was really nice! I would recommend this hotel.

    Best Hotel in College Park!! Wonderful staff and great location for visiting the UMD!! I always stay here when visiting my daughter. The rooms are meticulous and the breakfast buffet is very nice. 24/7 coffee/tea in the lobby is a wonderful perk. Recommend this Hotel for sure!!

    « Quite possibly the best value/price ratio in College Park »

    This hotel is one of the nicer Best Western establishments. The location is convenient (right on Baltimore Ave., just a few minutes from the UMD campus) and the rooms are spacious, functional and well maintained/cleaned. The free breakfast, although a bit spartan, is a welcome plus, too. The downside is that the rooms facing Baltimore Ave. get quite a bit of street noise. Also, you will hear every step people may take in the room above you. So try to get a room on the top floor facing the back! Enjoy your stay.

    « Convenient to UMD but not exceptional »

    This hotel has the advantage of being in close walking distance to the University of Maryland. It was clean (although one of my colleagues had two mouse traps in her room). The bed is awful. It is hard and holds heat. The bedding is ironically thin and does not hold heat. The fan in the bathroom ran all of the time (this was true for all of the people in our group). The breakfast is standard continental fare with powdered scrambled eggs (really, doesn't that say it all?). I could hear the person above my room walking around his / her room, and people near the street could hear every car go by. The staff is honestly not very friendly. Stay for the convenience, but don't hang out there!

    « Comfortable room »

    Stayed here while on business in the area. The room was very clean and the bed was just like at home (i.e. firm). If very busy, it could get noisy....a group of girls was staying in the next room and I could definitely hear them. I would stay again, tho.

    « good value, good experience »

    Family trip, reserving several rooms including a handicapped access room. The hotel was clean, with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Bathtub/shower in handicapped room very slippery, even with access bars, my mom needed help to get in and out of it. Water temps fluctuated a bit. Our room was facing Baltimore Road and road noise was audible, though not horrible. Breakfast was standard stuff -- adequate but not memorable. Breakfast room small. Front desk staff were all friendly, efficient and helpful. Convenient location to U. of Md. I-95 and I-295, though if you are thinking of taking Metro or MARC trains, the College Park station is about 3 miles away (nice walk along Paint Branch creek bike path, though not sure I'd recommend that at night or alone).

    Very Clean and roomy rooms. Easy check in . Convenient location. Coffee maker , fridge , and microwave in room .

    « Great hotel near UM »

    First stay in area, the hotel was well-maintained, the staff at the front desk friendly and efficient, and the rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. Very convenient to UM, the only thing that would make it better is a shuttle to the nearest Metro station! On busy days, the car park is over-full and I could have done without a car altogether if there had been a shuttle. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again.

    « Right next to UM & close to DC »

    Hotel was nice. Room was clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly. I thought it was odd that front desk is at hip level and the Greeter sits during check in/out. Breakfast was free and sufficient. The location can't be beat! Metro nearby to go to DC. Right on UM campus border. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from. If your looking for a local bar without all the college students, try "The Town Hall". We walked to dinner every night. I highly recommend if touring DC. Price is lower and a clean hotel.

    « Great and safe location, nice hot breakfast »

    After some snafus when checking in, the owner/manager went out of his way to make us happy and upgraded us to a mini-suite. We stayed 3 nights and were pleased with the accommodations and the breakfast food.

    « Clean, great location, pleasant staff »

    This is a very good value for a nice hotel very close to the Univ. of Maryland, so it's perfect for parents visiting their college students. It includes breakfast, which is always a plus, and the room was large and clean. The staff was pleasant upon checking in and out, even with the high winds knocking out their server -- they seem unrattled and accommodating. I would recommend asking for rooms that face the rear of the hotel, as there is some traffic noise since the hotel is right on Route 1. But it was definitely muted. The only other negative was the parking lot being quite small. On one occasion I had to wait a few minutes hoping someone would leave so I could park in the lot (luckily that happened). Just a small concern if it's fully booked. The fitness center is very small so don't have high expectations about that, however at least they have one. We would return here again, especially since the price was moderate compared to other hotels I checked out.

    « I like this place. »

    « Few issues but Nice »

    Don't request a wake up call as it will never come. And you may get a call at 10 pm if they want to check your plumbing. But overall, very clean, with good amenities. The decor was nice and the bedding very comfortable. Really liked the modern bathrooms but no matter the time of day the water goes from hot to cold to warm over and over again. Heard may guests complain at breakfast.

    « A good stay »

    I needed to stay overnight for business at the university. The hotel was close by and reasonably priced. A perfectly acceptable choice for an overnight stay. My only complaint was the heavy footsteps of the person staying above me and the small pillows for the bed. Otherwise it was just fine.

    « OK...not Great »

    We normally stay at Hampton Inns, but took a chance on this hotel, as it had better ratings than the Hampton in the same area. It was not awful by any means, but I feel it could have been better. We arrived a bit early (1:30 or so), and our room was not ready. I understand that's to be expected, but its not something we ever experience at a Hampton (we have never had to wait for a room when we arrive at 1pm or later). Additionally, the breakfast was not comparable to Hampton at all. It is the same items every day, and the warming trays were full of liquid. The pancakes were also not very good. We stopped to grab coffee in the afternoons and it was very old and gross, and same with decaf in the evenings. The cleaning team was also very visible the entire time, and seemed frantic every time I saw them. The room was nice, but there was a fan in the bathroom that you could NOT turn off, and it was pretty loud. The bed pillows were also abnormally small. Also, the hotel is right off a very busy street, and we had a room facing the street. There was a large grate in the street right in front of our room and anytime a large truck would go over it, it made a loud noise. I would stay here again if I had to, and it would be OK, but if the Hampton were comparable I would certainly pick that over this.

    hotel is literally on the edge of Baltimore Ave. Major noise on street side, did not sleep last night unfortunately...Also the heater/ac unit runs even if you shut it off and lastly there is a bathroom fan that is not able to be shut off which is very noisy.

    « A good stay »

    On the way down to Florida by car we chose to stay in the Best Western in College Park because of its rating and the easy access to Washington from the nearby Metro station. The parking for the Metro station is a short distance away by car. Leave your car in the garage and go down to the station, buy the train ticket, R/T $8, and add on the parking fee $5. It is collected when you return and leave the garage. You can also pick up the local bus outside the hotel to take you to the station. The station attendants are very helpful. We had a spacious attractive room with large TV, wi fi, hair dryer, iron and board, fridge, coffee maker, microwave a large bathroom with lots of good towels. It also offered a free breakfast with dried oatmeals,scrambled eggs, yogurts and fruit. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We would definitely recommend the hotel and if passing through would stay again.

    « Room Condition »

    We have stayed here previously with no issues. This time, there was old, smelly food in the fridge and hairs in the tub. In addition, on Sunday morning (the day we were checking out) housekeeping knocked on our door three times to see if we had left. Certainly the front desk knows we are still there.

    « Fine for our two night stay »

    I want to start by saying that I would stay at this hotel again :) This is a new but small hotel located near UMD. We were in town for a swim meet at the college and needed the basics. I reserved 2 rooms...a king bed for my husband and I and 2 queens for my kids. I wanted the rooms to be ajoining (since the one room was for a 15 &10 year old) I was told it wouldn't be a problem. Upon check in we were told they didn't have joining rooms available and our rooms were down the hall from each other. They said the hotel was full and nothing could be accommodated. This was disappointing. We were in a bit of a shock when in the king room there was a door that went to another room. Obviously, the room was already given to someone else. Both rooms were very spacious and nicely furnished. Large flat screen TV with many channels. Bathrooms were spacious and clean with lots of towels. The rooms had a microwave and refrigerator. The beds were a bit firm (but I'm OK with that) and the bedding was very comfortable. Our first night around 2:30 am we heard some people chatting through the walls. It went on until 5am (we had to be up at 5:30) We were in room 411 and thought it was the people in the room to the right of ours. We figured the wall were paper thin. We were so surprised when we learned the next day the only thing to the right of us were vending machine.....we still have not idea where the chatter was from. The next night we didn't hear a thing. People working at front desk were always very friendly and bottom line is we will stay at the hotel again.

    « Horrible. »

    I didn't even check in because one: they never charged the card, two: I had to pay $100 security deposit, but no where in the site did it say, such thing. I could pay $50 because it's only one night, but not $100. It ruined our plans completely. Trash and very expensive trash. Also they never picked up the phone, I called 2 times and different days because the e-mail containing reservation detaols did not have any details whatsoever.

    « Excellent property and Guest Services amazing »

    First off a big major props to the representative for Best Western Linda who handle our reservation after experiencing a disaster at the Comfort Inn in Beltsville. Props to Justin at the desk very awesome! Breakfast was amazing! Beds and Showers good. Pros- Choose this property if you want to get a good night sleep and great customer service. Cons- Communication between Front Desk and Housekeeping are very important. (Room wasn't ready in the beginning but Justin made it right in the end). Also a very small property not alot of parking options at night. Again it's okay just think it through before you build a hotel. Would I stay here again. Absolutely! Thanks guys

    Was good!!! Rooms clean and elegant, location was convenient to I95, breadfast is not very varied special for kids, was average, rooms at front a little be noise because of de cars, ambulance, but second night was better, I recommend it and can use it again on my trip

    « Good enough »

    A clean, safe, fairly new, hotel. No pool. Breakfast was below average. The beds were too soft and we had aching backs for the two days we stayed there. I never received a bill like I was told to be emailed to me so I am unsure what I was charged for. Next time I will just get the bill the old fashioned way. This hotel is most convenient to the college for us. However, a little pricey for what you get and compared to the area hotels. Not sure if we can afford to stay there every month we visit.

    « Excellent hotel and staff! »

    I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights while attending a class at the University of Maryland. This is a relatively new hotel and is very close to the University. I checked in late on a Sunday evening and everything went smooth. The person on duty explained the details of the hotel and was told when the complimentary breakfast was. My room had a king sized bed which was very comfortable. There was a sofa and desk in the room which made my stay seem a little like home. The bathroom was fine with no complaints. The room was made up every day by housekeeping and they did a wonderful job with no complaints. Breakfast in the morning was just ok. I'm not a picky person and found something different to eat but it just seemed to be lacking. Also the same thing was served everyday. Some people complain about the lack of parking but I never had an issue finding a space in the lot. I would highly recommend this hotel while staying in College Park.

    « I'm in love, it's perfect! »

    Dont bother with other places, this is the one you want! I wasn't too familiar with the brand but my stay was so pleasant! (Note: I booked online) Check in/out was really easy & the staff were friendly, so kudos to them & the housekeepers. The location is great, the room was immaculate & spacious, there was steady high speed wifi, & my room was facing away from the street so I had no problems with noise. They do place a credit/debit card hold while you stay so please be aware before you check in. I believe its $50 for credit and $100 for debit. Parking wasn't an issue for me, there were plenty of spaces but if theres a full house I can imagine it being crowded. My only suggestion is to get longer shower curtains as they are too short, it can make quite a mess if you're not careful. I definitely look forward to returning (it'll probably be sooner than I think!)

    I would stay here again, I had a great experience overall. If I had to say something negative, it would be the parking. We had to double park behind the service desk lady because there was not enough parking spaces.

    « Simple, elegant, comfortable »

    This Best Western location was recently renovated. While looking for hotels in the College Park, MD area, I noted the photos of the property on Google and the positive Google reviews. The reviews and photos match perfectly - this property delivers on cleanliness, comfort and service. Large, clean, comfortable rooms (my room was junior suite with sitting area and kitchenette). The rooms are stylish, as well as comfortable. The breakfast is VERY filling (both hot/cold selections) - with a very friendly/attentive attendant in the breakfast room. The WiFi is spotty and somewhat unreliable. Often the evenings were the toughest when guest usage was at peak. Overall, I highly recommend this property - the value is unbeatable for the area (close to DC/Metro stations and the Univ. of Maryland).

    « Convenient location, but not without its issues »

    The hotel is just a stone's throw from campus on busy Baltimore Ave. The parking situation is awful if you get there later in the day. The room was clean but smelled of bathroom cleaner (and we checked in at 10pm). We requested a room facing the parking lot, but we're told that rooms with 2 queen beds all faced the road. Be prepared to get up early as heavy traffic noise started around 6am.

    « Friendly Staff »

    I stayed in this Best Western for two nights. Overall, it was the typical experimence in this style of hotels in the US. Staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are large (certainly by European standards) and of good quality, while breakfeast is a disappointing affair (plastic cutlery, cardboard plates, and the choice is neither particularly high quality nor very wide). I was somewhat unlucky with my room being directly by the business center which was in the hallway which I would hear. Still overall, this is an ok place.

    « Clean, Comfortable, & Convenient »

    We enjoyed a 2 night stay at the end of our "get away". The staff was friendly and helpful; the location was convenient to freeways and restaurants, the hotel was clean and when we opened the door to our room, it smelled good - it didn't have that stale hotel room odor. We would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again in the future.

    « Best Western near DC »

    Hotel was quiet considering that a busy road was in front of it. Being in a college town, it has a lot of inexpensive ethnic food restaurants in the area, and I chose a cafe with food from El Salvador, which was good. Parking was good, and the hotel was very clean. My room was large, and like most Best Westerns, it had a desk with lamp that has outlets in it, and the high speed internet for free. I personally like hotels with no pets allowed, since I am traveling on business, and usually choose Best Western. The breakfast will not impress anyone, but there is a Denny's across the street, and Burger King, and plenty of other options. The hotel was safe, and clean, and quiet, and the front desk staff was A+.

    « Clean comfortable large room »

    We enjoyed a two night stay. We had a double queen room that was very spacious. Our room was overlooking the main road which was noisy at times. Breakfast was well presented and tasty it's always a handy addition when you are travelling. Staff were not overtly friendly. Free wifi was great no dropouts. I would stay here again.

    « Clean, convenient »

    Large clean room, well sound proofed. Many plugs. Free wi-fi. Huge TV. Reception minimal but friendly and responsive. Breakfast very basic on throw-away plates and with plastic flatware. Discount with AAA membership. Will return if I need to.

    « Great value for the money »

    Super clean hotel and room...which is why I gave the five stars. Hotel is only two year's old and the facilities are modern. The breakfast is definitely enough to get you started in the morning. ..coffee, bagels, cereals, pastries, eggs, pancakes, sausage. ..all complimentary. Was here for midnight madness at University of Maryland and the hotel's proximity to the school was excellent, literally down the street. Took uber to Washington DC ... so location is excellent. Staff was friendly enough, but the rooms are very spacious and clean which is most important to me.

    « Family Weekend at UMD »

    Nice hotel for visiting UMD, especially if you do not plan to spend a ton of time at the hotel. Stayed here before and was very satisfied; the property is kept very clean, fridge, microwave and safe are included in room, and hotel provides breakfast. Traffic all along Route 1 is brutal, but location is great for walking to/from UMD. The parking lot is cramped, but street parking on a side road is available (with pass from hotel). Considering that this hotel is right on Route 1, and in line with the local firehouse, not as noisy as expected.

    « One Blooper but still a Great Best Western »

    We've stayed at a number of Best Western Hotels and this was probably the best one we've experienced. The lobby and breakfast area are inviting and the entire hotel is very well kept. We always take the stairs to keep in shape and we were impressed that the stairwell was carpeted. It's usually just cement stairs. It has a nice indoor pool and a surprisingly nice workout room, both of which we used. The rooms are roomier than most. Our minisuite had a divider between the bed and the living area which made it nice. The living area had a sofa, coffee table and a stuffed chair. It made it comfortable to hang out in. All the front desk staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The buffet was what you'd expect at a Best Western and the staff was very friendly and did a good job keeping things filled. There were two negatives. One of the three rooms we had was not serviced one day. The other two were and we all left at the same time. Someone just overlooked it. Also, when we were leaving one morning we passed a housekeeping staff and to help, we told her, "We're leaving now so you can..." and she said, without looking at us or stopping, and with attitude, "Not my rooms." and she just kept walking. It was weird. Everyone else, from the front desk to the breakfast staff to the other housekeeping staff were so nice. We still see this as the best we've been to, but it probably would have been a five star instead of a four star without this incident. We definitely recommend this establishment. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay.

    « College football weekend stay »

    Stayed here 3 nights while in town for a Maryland football game, we reserved a top floor room 6 months in advance but got to hotel and was told we were on first floor, not a good sign, only one luggage cart for whole hotel, odd, but we went to our room in back side of building. this is a small hotel, 4 floors, 50 rooms and yes parking is way too small for building, but there is parking on side road with hotel pass. anyways pro's; nice size very clean rooms large king size beds in rooms, that are comfy fridge micro and small safe in room excellent free b-fast (eggs, homefries, sausage, pancakes, bagels, juice) 15 minute walk to byrd stadium (maryland college football field) close to fast food restarants, and rt 95 clean large bathrooms cons: parking 4 small pillows on a king bed paper thin walls loud traffic from rt 1 all night (and we were on back side of hotel) raise rates allmost double on big football weekends charge your credit card total cost of stay at check-in Overall are stay was fine for the 4day/3 nights we were there, and if ur staying here for the weekend its a good clean Best western.

    « Wallet got lost »

    Good room. Front desk was responsive and co-operative to our preferences. Break fast is complimentary. Free wifi in rooms. Travelled with family, booked 3 rooms on 09 Aug 2015. We had forgotten 3 new handbags in our room. In one of the handbags a Louis vuitton wallet was there inside a zipped pouch. Called them after 2 days, bags were promptly returned. But it is a great surprise wallet went missing. Obvious to guess. Better control and corrective action required urgently. This was not expected from Best western plus standards. Hope to get proper response.

    « Noisy room »

    Noisy, so-so breakfast, no newspaper or shuttle. I would not recommend this hotel because of these reasons so I am just filling up the minimum of 200 characters, but I've said my piece. Location looked good, but without a shuttle it made it more of a distance problem getting around, especially to the Metro.

    « Very clean and and very nice room »

    I checked in very late and was out by 4:45 am for two mornings. I was not able to eat breakfast and had no problem with parking. I was on the third floor facing the back and all I was looking to do was go to sleep. I did use the internet and it worked fine, if I was coming back to this area I would stay here again.

    « Got Money's worth »

    Hotel was clean and evening receptionist was very pleasant. Stayed on the second floor toward back parking lot. No noise and very comfortable. Clean. It was nice having a hot breakfast. First day there, sausage and potatoes were over cooked and not good. After that the breakfast was very enjoyable and a treat having something hot rather than just cold food in the morning. Had a good variety of food to chose from.
