Room was nice enough except for the smell and the bugs. Lots and lots of bugs.

Not clean, and over priced. its more like a ghetto area, with music being played the workers or owners in the morning disturbing sleep.

way too expensive for what it is - ridiculousPosted May 25, 2016
This is a terrible hotel. The rooms smell, the pillows were lumpy, and the general atmosphere was dirty and not clean. I would not recommend this place to anyone under any circumstances. Especially since the price was so high!!!

You get less than you pay forPosted May 13, 2016 on Hotels
I wanted a hotel on the Metro Red Line, so I went with this Days Inn, which was significantly cheaper than places downtown. Neighborhood seemed fine. There are a number of restaurants between the Metro station and the hotel. Walk to the station was straightforward, about 10-15 minutes, so not too bad. Hotel itself was a bit of an unpleasant surprise. Photos on the website led me to believe it was a hotel, but it's more of a motel - almost all corridors are exterior. Maybe I didn't look closely enough or read some fine print or something, but that wasn't what I expected. Service was not too good, probably due to understaffing. No one was at the front desk when I arrived, and no response when I knocked on the glass (it was behind a glass shield...maybe the neighborhood isn't so great?) so I waited a few minutes. Eventually I just decided to go to dinner and come back later. Had to wait again when I got back, but eventually the desk clerk returned and checked me in. Room was in somewhat poor condition - unpainted plaster patches, dresser drawer that wouldn't close, one lamp non-functional, room door difficult to open and close. On the plus side, bed and pillows were comfy and linens were clean. Overall, I am unlikely to stay here again. I would rather pay more and get a place that at least takes some pride in maintaining dignity and adequate staff levels. Being a two-star property is no excuse for insufficient service and appearance.

Good location but run-down and severely overpricedPosted May 12, 2016
With hotels what matters is location location location. But this hotel's prices are insulting in light of its quality. In my room, the front door was severely warped and I had to bash it closed with a full shoulder block (my apologies to the neighbors), only one out of three lamps worked (and one was missing its switch), the AC/heater unit did not have a knob for the temperature control, and the refrigerator was very loud. On the good side, they have free parking in a crowded downtown area and of course the location is good for activities/shopping in Silver Spring. But that does not nearly justify the inflated prices. Location ISN'T everything. Cut your prices in half and then they would be reasonable.

They gave the wrong roomPosted May 6, 2016 on Orbitz
They gave me the wrong room and the wifi password didn't work plus they didn't have a courtesy van to give me and my guest a ride I think I should get back some money or a discount on my next stay

need improvementPosted Apr 28, 2016
Pros: comfortable chair, but only one. Seemed clean. Smoking room.
Cons: see above.
Location: Silver Spring MD. You need a car.
DC government has put families there. They seemed nice. HOWEVER, there were men hanging around there at all hours of day and night. Not a comfortable feeling. TV was old and dark picture.

BED BUGS!Posted Apr 13, 2016 on Hotels
First off, I have bed bug bites on my arm from staying there. I have filed a complaint with the Montgomery County Health Department, but they don't seem to care. Even though the room was non-smoking, it smelled like someone had just smoked there. There was even a plastic bag covering the smoke detector to disable it. Half of the power outlets and lights in the room did not work. The microwave was missing. The refrigerator froze the drinks I had put in it, because someone has turned it up all the way. Whenever I turned on the TV, the volume was all the way up, because the cleaning crew had been watching TV while cleaning. The WiFi was much slower than the hotspot on my phone. Some of the other guest were loud from time to time, and car alarms went off frequently. This is not a fun place to stay. Unfortunately the management does not seem to care about any of the issues. The only redeeming features of staying there were the fact that it is the cheapest place to stay in Silver Spring, and it is a 15-minute walk to the Metro and MARC stations.
