At 20 minutes from the White House

Posted Jul 18, 2014
Pros: At 20 minutes walk from the White House. Possible to visit around. Hotel staff: better on the second day.
Cons: Have the door unlock with a card, we have to ring and wait for them to open the door. No smokers in the main entrance. Reduce parking fees
Location: At 20 minutes walk from the White House. Possible to visit all around.
At 20 minutes from the White House. We stayed one night and wanted to be close to the area of the White House. A bad surprise: 30 dollars more to park the car (parking suggested by the hotel because they have no parking - different owner) and extra fees if you dont leave the parking before 8:30 am. This will probably make us go somewhere else next time. The breakfast cost 5$ extra (no eggs). We choosed to go to another restaurant nearby.

No bad but could have been better.

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: It was clean.
Location: I liked the location. It was walking distance from the restaurants and the White House.
The hotel was ok but the location of the room was not. Our room was in the basement of the hotel and the view was a wall looking up at the sidewalk. The shower was too small and the tiles in the shower floor was all over the place.

Wi-Fi Not So Good

Posted Jun 20, 2014
The Wi-Fi signal in my room would come and go until my last night there and then it was pretty solid. The computer in the lobby for guest use didn't work very well either and the guy at the desk told me I would have to wait for the manager to arrive to look into the problem (also, it had no printer). My room was clean and comfortable, but one morning there was no hot water. On the whole, it was a pleasant stay and the price was certainly good for the area. A very charming old-style hotel!

Basic Old Hotel

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: Main desk clerk was very helpful
Location: Less than half a mile from the White House
It is an old, basic hotel with few amenities. It is a very good location. I feel it is priced a bit high for what it has to offer

A week in the embassy inn

Posted Jun 12, 2014
Delorace made me feel very comfortable. She was the best amongst the staff. The hotel generally is perfectly located in DC and superiorly accessible. However, the hotel condition is below average. The space is extremely small which is expected in DC, but the worst is the atmosphere. It is extremely humid inside the rooms, and the hotel is not ventalated properly. All in all, for somebody who is looking for a cheap good deal in DC, it is the one.

ughhh

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: nothing really
Location: location was pretty good, close to many restaurants
very old building, our AC wouldnt turn off, we asked the front dest to help or for a remote and he said he didnt know how and it was 'too bad'. He was generally rude and annoyed whenever i went down to ask q's which was often because they had minimal info. Rather stay in a better hotel for $20 more dollars trust me youll thank yourself.

Good location and pleasant staff. Older hotel has been updated (baths, not beds). Expensive for quality in an expensive town.
