Overnight stayPosted Mar 3, 2014
Pros: The holiday special price, the cleanliness of the room and the complimentary breakfast before hitting the road.
Cons: A total remodel would be great.
Location: The Capitol and plenty of historic sites are within walking distance from the Hotel.
My wife and I decided on a Sunday morning to drive to Washington D.C. While in route we searched for a reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of the Capitol and the Capitol Skyline hotel was offering a special rate for Presidents Day and the reviews from previous customers overall gave it a passing grade. So based on the price and reviews we took a chance and booked. Once we arrived, we were very pleased with the staff and cleanliness of the room. There was a minor hiccup with the hot water that affected the whole building. I know the hotel is historic and would love for it to get a full makeover. If that should happen, rest assured that those incredible rate specials will not been seen again. So take a chance, you'll be pleased.

Good Location. Walking distance to most points of interest. Breakfast was reasonably priced and good. Fitness Center was OK- TV's did not work on the machines. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Was unable to control the temp in the room. Good hotel for the price.

Great place! Great stay! Great locale!Posted Feb 22, 2014
Pros: The clean room, staff, breakfast and location!
Cons: More shuttle stops.
Location: The location is great and near restaurants, Navy Yards, Washington Nationals stadium, the Capitol and convenience stores. This area is growing!
I booked this hotel for its proximity to the Capitol, free wi-fi and the monthly specials of free breakfast and free parking. I didn't expect much, but cleanliness. I was pleasantly surprised at the friendly staff and great accommodations. I had to book and extra night, so I was happy that I was able to grab a room. The staff had me stay in the same room. I told all of my DC friends and around about this hotel. It is in walking distance of the new Navy Yard restaurants and a McDonalds. It is very family, couple and singles friendly. I also did not have to walk to the Capitol. Shout out to the free shuttle!! I highly recommend this place.

Convenient for meeting the next day.Posted Feb 20, 2014
Location: Gordon Biersch nearby for eating & beer!
I stayed here because I was coming quite a distance from outside of DC dor a meeting early the next morning that was scheduled to be held at the meeting room in this hotel. I normally would have stayed at one of the major hotels, but to avoid possible difficultites in arriving on time, etc., I decided to just stay here for the night. It is an older hotel, but it appeared to have been renovated not too long ago. The room seemed fairly clean, but I did notice one spot of mold in the corner behind the door in the bathroom. Other than that, the room was pretty. The only place to eat was a very dated dining area for breakfast. The breakfast buffet was kind of sparce, but since it was included in the cost of my room, it was okay...not too special. However, they really should replace the furnishings so it doesn't look like something from a 1960's movie. Overall, I would give this around a 3.5 rating, and probably won't recommend to anyone, unless they have another meeting that happens to be scheduled at this hotel. The price was reasonable for the room and conditions. At least there was a Gordon Biersch Restaurant for dinner just a few blocks away!

ConventionPosted Feb 18, 2014
The fan on the heating and cooling system did not work properly. No hot water for showers on 2nd day and staff never called back as promised to advise on hot water. Tv had a short and kept going out. Staff did not seem to care or want to fix the issues.

Dated, dilapidated, and dark.Posted Feb 17, 2014
Cons: Updating the wallpaper and fixing the heating system might be a good place to start, right after actually washing the bed linens so they smell clean.
Bring your earplugs! I chose this hotel because it was fairly inexpensive, and I suppose I have been spoiled by all of the good deals I've found in the past, but in the future I'll happily pay more to stay absolutely anywhere else. When I called to let the hotel staff know that I would be arriving quite late, I was told that if I were going to be even a few minutes later than I projected that I would need to call back *again* or risk losing my reservation. Then, I arrived and my room was unbearably hot, but if the (incredibly loud) heat was switched off then an even louder noise droned on from the radiator making it impossible to sleep. Moreover, the bed linens smelled like body odor and the hinges in the bathroom were corroded and rusty. The torture did not end when my sleepless night was over, however, because while waiting for a cab in the lobby I was subjected to an irritating and repetitive video supposedly created by an art student. I am a great art lover with extensive training in the field-- and perhaps one needs to have slept to truly appreciate the piece-- but if it had not been quite so cold outside I would have waited for my cab out of doors just to avoid the "art."

Overpriced and under deliversPosted Feb 17, 2014
No coffee in the room. Rooms were ok, but not worth the amount paid. Breakfast was $9.99 and was horrible!

For a quick trip- not a bad dealPosted Feb 13, 2014
Pros: The bed was pretty comfortable, and having a covered place to park.
Cons: Possibly the decor... could be a little more modernized.
Location: Seemed close enough to everything. Got a cab pretty easy and was able to get downtown pretty quick.
The hotel itself isn't your 5 star resort, but it gets the job done. We were only staying one night, and literally only sleeping/showering before being on our way. Check in & out were fairly simple. Rooms keys worked. Internet/tv all up-to-date. Beds were actually quite comfortable. Only thing our room lacked was some cooler air. Heat was somehow blasted all night making it a sauna [granted trip was in February so it wasn't the worst thing] but couldn't get it to cool down much. If you're looking for a place that gets you a place to stay that doesn't break the bank this is the one.
