Start your day with a heart-pumping workout in our 24-hour fitness facility. Grab your swimwear and enjoy a refreshing dip in our heated indoor pool. During the warmer months, swim from inside to the connecting outdoor pool and catch some of those summer rays.

Whether your stay is for business or leisure, we will always have a full hot breakfast with freshly prepared waffles waiting each morning. Should you need directions or assistance of any kind, our staff is available to assist you 24-hours a day.

The Best Western Parkside Inn is minutes away from many government agencies such as Administrative Office of the Courts, the Attorney General's Office and KY Auditor of Public Accounts. Hop on the infamous KY Bourbon Trail and take in the Woodford Reserve Distillery, the Buffalo Trace Distillery and then head to Lawrenceburg to tour the Wild Turkey and Four Roses Distillery.

For wine connoisseurs, we have the Lovers Leap Winery in Lawrenceburg or even the Elk Creek Vineyard located in Owenton. Who could come to KY without visiting one of our many immaculate horse farms? Three Chimneys, Airdrie Stud and Gainesborough Farm and many, many more are all within a short drive from the Best Western.

If the nature of your stay in Frankfort is due to business, the Parkside Inn is within minutes of Topy, Montaplast, Greenheck and the new Parkside Development. There is always shopping within walking distance for a getaway from the office. The Parkside Shopping Center contains Kohl's®, TJ Maxx® and Dressbarn®. Finish your evening off with dinner at one of many sit-down restaurants such as Cattleman's Steakhouse, Miguel's or Cracker Barrel. Enjoy your stay.
