Breakfast was delish and the waiters were very nice.
Rooms were clean and beds were comfy!

We spent almost two months at the Holiday in Frederick while moving to our new house. The staff at the front desk and the waitresses who serve the morning breakfast make you feel at home. Overall the staff is very courteous. We would have liked to get some coupons to use nearby restaurants. They also have the Priority Club Wednesdays evenings and guests are invited to enjoy free snacks and drinks and can win 1000 or 5000 points towards their Priority club card.The Fitness Center will need either better equipment or guest should be provided a pass to go to the nearby fitness center.
Large parking available.
Otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

I'm glad that you were able to win Priority Club points with our drawings at the reception! Feel free to come back anytime...but we are certainly glad that your new home is ready for you! We are so glad that you stayed with us and we look forward to seeing you around town! Enjoy!

We found ourselves in need of a place to stay for a Lacrosse tournament and were pleased with how things worked out. The hotel is sort of within the grounds of a mall with Macy's and such so it was close to all sorts of restaurants like Panera a little bit down the way, and across the street from a Target and Sports Authority with a Walmart very close-by. The hotel itself had a place from drinks and food but we didn't visit, instead we went to the Macaroni grill down the road in another mall which had loads of restaurants. The whole hotel was clean. The pool and hot tub were nicely kept and the kids really liked the mini golf next to the pool. The air conditioning in our room was magnificent, which meant a lot since it was 104 outside and we were hot and exhausted when we came in from a day on the fields. I will say that the beds were on the tiny side as far as doubles go so that my husband and I were a bit cramped when we slept. Luckily we only took my son because a 4th child in the room would have been unmanageable without a cot or airbed. Oh, and the bed was a bit soft for my taste, but not uncomfortable. They do allow pets which is fine, except someone let their dog bark from about 9-11 which was annoying. someone from the hotel really should walk around every once in a while to catch that sort of thing.

Overall I would go back again but would make sure to make allowances for more than one teen.

Room Tip: I would ask for a quiet room away from pets and the pool

Thank you so much for your post! We are glad that you were were able to stay with us our hotel during your sporting event in Frederick. You were definitely here during a very hot timeframe, so I'm glad we could cool you off away from the fields. In regards to the pets, we apologize that this was not noticed on our behalf. We do have a security guard that patrols the hallways throughout the night, so we will be sure to pay closer attention to that. Again, thank you for your feedback and advice for future travelers. We are glad that you stayed with us and hope to see you again in the future. Thanks!

Stayed here one night this week hoping for a quick morning workout and was disappointed to find that the "fitness center" is a big room which contains nothing but two treadmills. My room was clean with a comfortable bed and reasonably up to date furnishings except for the television which was of the pre-flat screen variety. Other disappointment was the fact that the air conditioning never cooled down my room - the hallway was significantly cooler - just barely cool enough to sleep and dress without breaking a sweat.

Thank you for your survey regarding your stay. While I am sorry that we did not have the full amenities you expected and deserve, I am pleased to say that we have just completed an installation of all new HD Televisions in our guestrooms as of the end of June. Also, we are in the process of purchasing all new exercise equipment and anticipate having it shortly. Regarding your room, I am sorry it did not cool properly. My engineering staff take these concerns seriously and hopefully you reported it to us during your stay so that we could correct the problem. Please try us again! My staff is superb and I know we can make your stay much more enjoyable!

Holidome with indoor pool and mini-golf would have been great for my daugher. Breakfast was much better than the usual continental. Room was clean and comfortable. Bar with karaoke and pool tables, good bartender. There are newer places with more bells and whistles, but I enjoyed my stay.

Room Tip: No elevator, ground floor if you travel heavy.

My driver was informed that if he was a government worker he'd get a coupon for a breakfast. Unfortunately WE are not government so we had to pay for his breakfast. The people are pleasant and the room are clean but the breakfast for our driver was disappointing. I'd really like to know WHY a government worker gets something included in the cost of the stay? We will not be using this hotel again.

Room Tip: For the cost of a stay you should include a continental breakfast for all your patrons.

Although the lobby area is clean and well designed, the main hall to the rooms is dreary and shabby. For the price of a double room facing the pool area (about $139 per night) the room was very small with furniture that looked unchanged since the 1980s. The room and hallway feels more like a highway rest stop motel rather than somewhere attached to a conference center.

It is also misleading to advertise as being "at Francis Scott Key Mall". Although the mall is within walking distance, there is no sidewalk and no clear entry to the mall parking lot. It's odd how they could design such a poor road to enter the hotel area and not include a sidewalk to get to the mall.

Very nice staff but all in all very poor value for money. The room service food was also bland and over priced.
