Good value and free breakfast:)

Posted Jul 22, 2017
Pros: free breakfast
Cons: some updating will make it a lot more appealing
Location: located on richmond hwy and apartment buildings so no much perse nearby to do. once on metro, you have access to many fav spots.
We stayed 3 nights spending all days in DC. Free continental breakfast of breads, cereals, drinks and waffles were great. Many travelers and families. Speak to the staff about how to get to the metro (free drop at metro) and ask about short cut if you want to walk. We walked. Walmart is about 15-20min walk up richmond highway which is doable. closer by is 7-11. We were on budget and feel this was great value.

It's ok but nothing to rave about

Posted Jul 22, 2017
The price was ok, the room was ok, the location was ok. I'd try to find something a little better next time so I wouldn't have to stay here again. But if nothing else is available, this place is... ok.

Convenient to take Metro into DC

Posted Jul 19, 2017
The staff was helpful with directions. There's a Metro stop & parking garage about a mile away. The room was fine, beds were good.

Filthy

Posted Jul 13, 2017
This hotel was filthy and run down. Was supposed to stay a week, but left after 1st day. Also price Expedia website charged for this room was way over priced. Very dissatisfied!

Three nights

Posted Jul 12, 2017
We stayed 3 nights while touring Washington DC. It was a clean room. Quiet atmosphere. Good full breakfast! Nice pool with life guard. Hallways could use a good cleaning but overall it was a good cheap hotel!

Basic needs met

Posted Jul 6, 2017
Pros: It was clean.
Cons: Breakfast and the a/c.
Location: The location was not great because it was kind of a long walk to the nearest metro.
Our stay was fine, but the room key didn't work the first time, so we had to go back to the office to get it to work. The room was comfortable and clean, but the a/c condensation leaked and so parts of the carpet were soaked. The hotel was in a boring, depressing part of town, and about a mile or a little further from the nearest metro station. All the tv stations came in static, and the aspect ratio was off, so everyone looked fat. Breakfast was pretty lame. Even the Cheerios didn't taste like real Cheerios. The coffee didn't taste great, and if it did taste okay, then there wasn't enough for us in our room.
