    « An inexpensive convenient hotel »

    The room, amenities and service were adequate. I appreciated the nearness to the University of Maryland facility where my meeting was held, and the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. I would stay there again.

    « Will stay again »

    Great stay! Was here for a meeting at UMD and was pleasantly surprised at how close it was to campus. Rooms were clean, staff were friendly, and was much more affordable than the Marriott. I will be back.

    « Anyone coming to College Park should stay here! »

    Wow, what a wonderful experience I had at this hotel. I was in College Park to visit the University of Maryland and am very happy I chose to stay here, especially because of the Best Western's proximity to the campus. First, let me get the basic review requirements out of the way. The staff: very helpful and kind. The rooms: clean as can be. The beds: comfy cozy. And, most importantly, the price: very affordable! I heard they made a new hotel in CP called "The Hotel," but unfortunately I am not a millionaire and cannot afford that kind of luxury. At the Best Western, I had everything I could ever need. A nice breakfast, free wifi, a compact but functional gym, and FREE PARKING! I definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Great bang for your buck »

    I had a great time staying here at the BW, the staff was very friendly and timely about any request I made. Their patience with me and the other hotelgoers was awesome. It's not a Hilton hotel, but for the amount of money a room costs here, it's an absolute steal! Recommend 5/5

    « Good location »

    We had never been to College Park before and heard that some areas are not so nice, so I was pleasantly surprised that this was a good hotel in what appears to be a pretty well-traveled and safe location within walking distance of University of Maryland. The hotel was well kept, and the free breakfast was about what I would expect. There were hot and cold foods. The hotel is also within walking distance of many restaurants.

    « Great hotel for quick stay »

    Hotel staff was great for a quick stay. Very close to University of Maryland which we wanted for graduation purpose. Breakfast was great, although a small area to eat so we took it to our room. They had little cheese omelets, sausage links, potatoes, pancakes, fruits, bagels, different breads, danish, coffee and juice. Room was a little to warm for me even after I turned down the thermostat. Otherwise for the price it was a great stay.

    « PERFECT GETAWAY SPOT »

    I'm a DC resident who wanted to get away for the weekend but still be near my home. The Best Western Plus hotel was the perfect spot. Only 25 mins from my DC residence, I was able to enjoy some alone time and still return to me home periodically to check on my home and pet. The facility is very well-kept. The rooms are spacious and friendly and I just loved the microwave and fridge in the room. The desk was a welcome plus for my studies and the sofa to relax and watch tv. Such a welcoming and warm location. One that I plan to frequent pretty often in 2018 and beyond. Thank you Best Western Plus, College Park, MD for a lovely lovely weekend. See you soon.

    Clean, good amenities, great staff, awesome breakfast. For the price, it was an excellent stay in a good location in College Park, MD. I was on business at the university and found this hotel very convenient and an excellent option. Breakfast was surprisingly great, especially for a hotel this size.

    « Nice Hotel! »

    This particular Best Western Hotel had a nice continental breakfast, and the high-speed internet worked very well! I reserved a King room and it had plenty of space for 4 occupants (a large king sized bed and a large pull-out couch-bed). The room was very clean, the light switches were located in very convenient places (bed-side switches operated lighting at the entryway and overhead bed lights). The bathrooms were very clean and neat, and they had wall-to-wall tile. The room was comparable to a 5-star hotel room. The staff was friendly and very helpful! I would definitely recommend this Best Western to anyone!

    « PSU Football Fan »

    Stayed 1 night for College football game, very nice clean rooms. Great location for walking to local pubs and football stadium. Hotel staff friendly and accommodating our group. Breakfast was good, would only recommend that they offer a different style potato and sausage choice at breakfast neither wast very tasty. Although, they may also be a local preference compared to PA choices.

    « Won't visit again »

    The hotel is satisfactory when it comes to room amenities and cleanliness. The overall experience I had was horrible. The hallways are noisy. The floors were vibrating when people walked outside. The staff wasn't very helpful when I couldn't sleep at 3 in the morning because of the loud noise in the hallways. When I asked for ear plugs the receptionist said I could go down the street to the nearest pharmacy store (about a mile away) and buy earplugs for myself. AT 3 IN THE MORNING!!

    « Close to college »

    The room was extremely spacious, everything was clean, the TV was big, the staff was nice, and best of all the hotel is right by the University of Maryland. I hate to ever leave negative but they need more parking spaces as we literally took the last spot at 8:00. Also, the breakfast is free and you're better off skipping. The eggs are gross, the pancake machine makes chewy pancakes and there's not even plain oatmeal so you're better off going to Denny's across the street.

    I've stayed at the Best Western Plus in College Park twice. And both times the experience has been excellent. Great value (unbelievable, really) with nice amenities, excellent, free internet, free parking, inexpensive clean and comfortable room (with nice television and good channel selection) to include bed, pillows, and sofa. Quite simply, this is a great place to stay and the hotel is in an excellent location for College Park (and very convenient for driving to/from).

    « Standard Best Western Options »

    Stayed here as it is convenient to the National Archives (assuming you have a car). Have stayed here before but this time had a room in the front on the street side despite having requested a room in the rear in advance of arrival - street noise can be an issue so be aware of that if you are sensitive to noise as Baltimore Avenue is quite busy (from early morning to late night). Breakfast was included and was standard fare - scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, cereals, bagels, juices, bananas, etc. Room was clean and fresh. You are about a twenty minute stroll (little over mile) from the Metro if you want to leave the car behind and go into DC or you can use the Metro Car Park of course if you prefer not to walk that far. Quite easy to reach the archives by car - less than 15 minutes away.

    Sirgut , Kenny , The Room Attendants and virtually All the employees were ,polite ,conscientious and everything that entails professionalism. The location is great as you can easily access all the main roads and Highways in the area. The Aviation Museum is a stone's throw from this great hotel.

    « Great Choice for College Park »

    Nice hotel, good value, very close to University of Maryland. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The breakfast was adequate--nothing fancy but for a quick on the go meal it was fine. There were many very good restaurants nearby. If you want to go to the Metro to go to DC make sure that you go to Metro Parking. We wound up on the other side of the tracks and had a devil of a time figuring out how to get to the parking lot!!

    This was an excellent hotel. The room was very nice, service great, and the location was convenient. It appears that others think the same way as the hotel stayed full. I definitely recommend this hotel I will be staying again when in the D.C. area.

    « BW College Park »

    I stayed there because its location was convenient (I was working in the nearby National Archives). I had a room on the street side, so it was rather noisy at times. The nearest Metro station is rather far away, but I had a car. Overall, the hotel served my purposes.

    « Best Hotel near UMD »

    I absolutely recommend this hotel if staying in the College Park area and visiting students at UMD., The staff are friendly and wonderful. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. Parking is great and always a space available now as they have issued parking passes to only guests staying there.

    « Comfortable and convenient »

    We stayed here for a campus visit.The hotel is 3 blocks away from UMCP campus. Clean, comfortable, spacious, and very convenient if you are visiting UMCP. Check-in/out is a breeze and the staff are helpful. We left our car parked there after we checked out and were told that it's no problem. Breakfast is included but don't expect too much. Yes I would certainly stay here again...if my daughter becomes a student here.

    « Close by to U of Maryland. »

    Perfect hotel if visiting UMD College Park. 1/2 Mii from campus. Clean and affordable small hotel with very good complimentary breakfast. Room was clean and staff was courteous and accommodating. Visited UMD with daughter on college search. Easy check-in and staff was very helpful with area surroundings and attentive when we needed extras like toothbrush and towels.

    « Don't Bother Making a Room Request »

    Our reservation, made well in advance, clearly requests two rooms, both to be on an upper floor. We arrived to find that one room was on first floor, the other on the second floor. We reminded the clerk of our request. He said he could not see that request in our reservation (we have written proof). He moved the first floor room up to floor two, but gave us the ADA room without telling us-we didn't know until we unlocked the door. When we again requested a standard king on an upper floor, the desk clerk said "give me a few minutes and I'll see if another room is available". We never heard from him, even though he saw us walk out of the hotel an hour later. Great way to treat members of the Best Western Loyalty Program - especially those of us that have stayed at this particular property many times over the past two years!

    « Always a good stay! »

    I have stayed here twice now and both stays have been wonderful. The rooms are very clean and modern. From the outside it seems like nothing fancy, but the little things in the room are nice surprises. I love a firm mattress which they had, I love a ton of outlets, which they had. Even the toiletries were of higher quality. The front desk staff is always friendly. It's our favorite hotel to stay in in College Park.

    « Exceptional Hotel -- Best in College Park »

    Room was exceptional. Hotel was clean and spacious. The only drawback is no fan in the bathroom. The hotel offered a breakfast but we did not have a chance to go. There is no pool in this hotel and access to the facility is from a rear parking lot through the lobby doors on the side of the building.

    « Great Option in College Park, MD »

    This hotel was extremely comfortable and quiet. The staff was polite, knowledgeable and contentious. One improvement would be a guest laundry room; they offer a take-out laundry service; but, it is pricey.

    « Friendly and helpful staff »

    We stayed here for two nights. Our room was not ready upon our early arrival but the lady at the front desk pointed out some local points of interest and lunch options while we waited. We had a corner room which gave us a lot of natural light in the room. Beds were fine and the room was nicely laid out and was spacious. The mini fridge and microwave were all put to use during the time we were there. The bathroom was modern and clean. Breakfast had a variety of options to suit most people. Again the front desk staff helped to suggest dinner options which were exactly as we had told them we wanted.. Only a few blocks away from the metro link into Washington and is easy to find and use... the only thing I missed was a pool or hottub to relax in after long days walking in Washington but I have no problem recommending this hotel....

    « Efficient Elegance »

    My husband and I stayed overnight at this Best Western with my son to visit UMD for a college tour. We had a well decorated studio room: one queen bed with a pull out couch. There was ample room for everyone, even a small room divider that gave parents and teens a bit of privacy. This Best Western has achieved "efficient elegance" in that the hotel is bare bones: no expansive lobby with a waterfall, state of the art fitness room or large screen TV's by the bar, but extremely clean. The only negative was the free breakfast that I would consider skipping. There is a awesome coffee shop just minutes away!

    stayed here for 5 nights in a king room. It was so quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Our room also had a sofa bed which was great as well. Bathroom was large and spotless, microwave and coffeemaker, all clean and in great working order. Not a speck of dust anywhere!! Good job housekeeping!! TV worked great, remote had been sanitized ( how cool!) Wi Fi was good... Not excellent, but really no problems. They have a small business center and gym. Treadmill and elliptical were a but noisy when in use....might want to have them services, but very functional!! Staff was top notch...smiling friendly and helpful Elaye and the woman who supervise breakfast were on top of their game!! Breakfast was usually some type of eggs or omelette, sausage....sometime chicken sausage,many cereals, pancake machine!! Muffins, toast croissants etc. lots to choose from. Way nicer that I expected.and last but not least...good coffee available all day!! Location is great for any U of Maryland stuff. 3 minute drive to the Metro ( 5.50 to park at Metro!) about 20 min to Union station on Metro. All in all we were very happy. Owner should be proud of staff.... I am in this business and therefore pretty hard to please!!

    Best Western Plus College Park was a fine choice for a recent conference I attended. The cost was moderate and my king-sized room was very nice and included microwave and refrigerator as well as a good sitting room with comfortable couch and table. Free breakfast was quite good and convenient and included several choices. I was able to walk to the University for the conference sessions and I enjoyed my stay very much.

    Our recent stay at Best Western plus in College Park was a wonderful experience. We requested a quiet room away from the elevator, and we were given an extremely quiet room on the first floor. We appreciate that this hotel has signs requesting quiet hours after 10:00 p.m. The breakfast is fabulous and well attended to. We appreciated the employees in every capacity - front desk, breakfast room, and maid service. Every thing about this hotel was good - clean, comfortable, quiet and friendly. We have stayed here before and we hope to stay again!

The rooms where very nice and much larger than expected. The staff friendly, the included breakfast good and in nice area, free parking behind the hotel.

    « A transactional business hotel »

    An OK location to spend a few nights. Nothing much to complain about, nothing much to get excited about. Staff is nice and professional. Parking lot is convenient. Room is wide and clean. There is even a breakfast, and some wifi. That said, noise isolation is weak. My room was facing the parking lot, not the road, so I did not hear the traffic. And People around my room were very quiet. Still, I could hear the footsteps of the guest above me as if he/she was walking on a tiles in my own room. And I am pretty sure everyone around heard all of my phone conversations. Breakfast exists but is basic, you feel it's a lot of 'processed' food. I only dared pick the fruits, reluctanctly. But it's nothing horrible either.

    « Good Convenient Location to get into Wahington »

    We chose this hotel to use as abase for touring Washington as we would be heading to Annapolis after our visit. The hotel was on a busy road but we were given a room at he back and the traffic noise was not a problem. The hotel is about 1.5 miles from College park metro station and metro trains and parking were very convenient. We found this to be an excellent place to stay location wise. We had our main meal of the day in Washington at lunch time and there were lots of good and reasonably priced places within walking distance for an evening light snack type meal.

    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.

    « 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...

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    « 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.

    « 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 - 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    « 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!

    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).

    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.

    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.

    « 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.

    « 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.

    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.

    « 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.

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

    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!)

    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.

    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.

    « Would stay here again! »

    Hotel was clean, comfortable and complimentary breakfast was great. Staff was amiable and very helpful. Bed was firm just like we like them. Near U of M. Lots of fast food places nearby. If you come here you will likely enjoy your stay.

    « 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.

    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.
