Took a chance on the book before you know option.

Room was packed with furniture hard to get around bed. It smelled like a smoking room when I asked for non smoking. While sleeping I was awaken but something scurrying and scratching around. Never did see what it was so I got up and left. Eww

Won't return

Posted Jun 14, 2014
Very basic, small dark room, low ceilings, sheets were stained, old towels, few plugs, coming off the wall, repainted tiny bathroom with wiggly faucetts, hallways were horribly dirty and stunk. Flipside: kind and efficient staff, free parking and good location. So, would not go back but for some could be worth it, but for no more than $60/night.

Not Good for the Business Traveler

Posted May 20, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: If the hotel intends to cater to a business clientele--and it might not--it needs to be more aware of who is checking into the hotel.
Location: Location is fine for work in the District of Columbia or the Silver Spring area. Access to the Metro is simple, and there are abundant restaurants.
The best I can say about this facility is that it is located within a reasonable distance of the D.C. Metro system. The room was noisy--the walls are thin, and I could hear guests arguing for hours in the next room. There is not nearly enough parking for the number of rooms. Facilities are virtually non-existent...this felt like warehousing. Check-in staff did not provide, or even offer, a copy of the hotel receipt, and I will have to find another way to rectify the expense on my expense report

Harlan, I would like to apologize and explain why we are not able to give you a copy of your bill. When using Expedia we are not allowed to give a copy of your bill because your payment information is not shared with the hotel. This is for your benefit, so that your information is not past over the internet it is keep with Expedia. For the noise please know that the front desk is empowered to make sure that each guest is comfortable. Again I thanks you

DO NOT STAY HERE!

Posted May 20, 2014
There are many hotels in this area that are about the same price and much nicer. This hotel felt like one of those that you could pay by the hour. The room felt gross. We stayed out til midnight just because we didn't want to come lay down in the bed. Don't waste your money on this place find somewhere close with the same price.

Washington DC prices?

Posted May 18, 2014
It was adequate and a place to sleep. Broken bath fixtures, cracked tiles, sink didn't drain, color TV shows only black and white, light switch at door turns of TV, on bureau drawer simply missing, lights at the bed don't work.

Days Inn, Silver Spring

Posted Apr 22, 2014
I booked a room for Sunday, April 13th, and I had trouble from the beginning. The troublesome evening began when I tried to check in. The front desk employee could not find my reservation; she had also called the hotel next door to check with them, but also found nothing. I checked itinerary with my tablet and showed it to her (after waiting through a few minutes of small talk with another guest), but she still insisted that there was nothing. After some more waiting, they found my name among the reservations, but for some reason, it had been scheduled for the next day. I finally called Expedia to confirm the reservation and try to resolve the problem; the lady (whose name I could not remember now) was very helpful and prompt. After my itinerary was faxed to Days Inn, I finally got my room key, and thankfully, the staff understood that I had already paid for my stay. Unfortunately, I was late to the concert where I had gone that evening. I was a hotel employee myself, and I do understand that mistakes are made, but I expect such preventable and time-consuming missteps like that to be avoided. If a refund is possible, I would like one.

College Road Trip Stay

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: The location to d.c was the best part about the hotel. One straight shot to Howard University!
Cons: The overall appearance of the buildings. Seemed outdated.
Location: Near college district and not far from the capitol. There are several shopping plazas and stores along the major road.
The room was clean, but smelled as if it was a smoking room when I requested a non-smoking room. However, the room was clean and the hotel staff cleaned the rooms daily.

It's located close to downtown Silver Spring where the A F I theatre and the Fillmore are located. Close to busy nite life of Silver Spring.
