The Hotel is very nicely located in a walkable area and has a Mexican Restaurant attached to it. But unfortunately we didn't feel very welcome here. The receptionist did not welcome us nor had a lot of words to spare. The air condition in our room had an unpleasant smell (a little bit comparable with the smell of an old wet dog). The water out of the shower (and I don't know how this can happen) had a smell like and old muddy cellar. But our biggest disappointment was the in the booking included continental breakfast and the reaction of the staff when we addressed it. We specifically chose this hotel due to the included continental breakfast (which we also saw later described as 'tasty complimentary breakfast' on their webpage).Therefore we were disappointed when offered a 'ToGo' bag with an apple and some packaged snacks as the continental breakfast. That did not only mess up our schedule as we had to look for breakfast elsewhere. But this also left a bad feeling like being taken to the cleaners. Especially since the lady at the checkout did not want to reimburse or discount our stay or was offering us any kind of compensation. Instead she argued that they proceed like this since two years and that their website would show a 'ToGo' bag as breakfast. And told us that we would have to contact our third party booking portal. As previously mentioned they clearly have something different posted in their website.

This is the nastiest and disgusting hotel I’ve ever been to. The website is false advertising. The rooms on the website look clean and renovated. However, I stayed in room 417 and it was disgusting. Blood on the walls, carpet was filthy, TV had no signal and didn’t work, headboard had stains on it, bed sheets were yellow and the shower didn’t work. I tried to call the front desk and request a new room. I was told they didn’t have anymore rooms. I explained to the front desk staff that the rooms look nothing like the website. The gentleman replied and said “yes, I know. Wow unbelievable. If it was so late, I would have checked out. Worst experience ever. This place should be shut down by the board of health. The wall paper is from the 1970s and room had mold in it.

It smelled terrible and my bed linens were clearly dirty. My pillows smelled like body odor. The staff is lethargic, unkept, and unapologetic. Rooms are tiny and parking is very difficult to get into.

The room was too tiny for us to stay in, and the parking lot was so small, I could barely get out of it.

Worn out and dirty hotel, chipped and broken furniture, dark hallways, didn't feel safe. Breakfast was promised and turned out to be juice and muffin in a paper bag. Massively overpriced even for greater DC.
