Good location

Posted Oct 22, 2017
Pros: Location
We spent a few days at this property while visiting Washington D,C, historical sites. We appreciated the location close to the Ea.st Falls Church Metro station. We used Uber to get there . Staff was friendly and helpful. Rate was very reasonable, breakfast OK.

Great Location

Posted Oct 20, 2017
Although we did have beginning issues with our room(we were accidentally put in an “out of service” room by mistake” The Hotel owner and staff went above and beyond to rectify everything. We love that the hotel was only 8 miles from National mall in DC. Also we were pleasantly surprised with the Free Continental Breakfast which went beyond your typical cold cereal and pastries. Each morning waffles (waffle iron style not frozen) were offered along with another hot breakfast choice (one day Scrambled Eggs and Ham. The next sausage gravy and biscuits) plus bagels, muffins, cereal, juice, coffee etc. A friendly staff member there both days to assist. Great place for the nightly rate. We would definitely go back!

Dated in appearance but clean. Convenient location. Breakfast was nice. The staff were accommodating by allowing an early check in since I arrived early and the room was ready. For that I am grateful.

Near Arlington National Cemetary

Posted Oct 9, 2017
Pros: Staff
Cons: Lamps not efficient enough - need updated lighting, very dim room. Improve bathrooms. Needs updating inside.
Location: Near Arlington, nice little restaurant next door with good food.
First time visitor and stayed at the hotel as recommendation of cousin who also stayed. The outside looks great but this is a tired hotel with many updates needing done. Poor lighting, trouble turning on water in shower, just an older hotel needing many room updates. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Taz, Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your feedback. I am sorry the room was not as well lit as you would have liked. In the future, please alert us to this and we will be more than happy to put some extra lamps in your room. This hotel has been around since the 1950s, and while we want it to maintain its vintage charm, we do perform ongoing renovations as we are able. Plumbing upgrades are in fact in the works as I write this. Hope you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again!

This was a stopover location prior to travel home

Posted Sep 20, 2017
Pros: Convenient breakfast off site
Cons: Everything!! Chose lodging due to room rate/location to family
Location: Not applicable
Lodging was dated; bathroom fixtures old; light bulbs didn't all work. Convenient to Bentley's Restaurant Continental buffet was terrible Would not recommend this location to others!!

Matt, thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your feedback. This building has been around since the early 1950s, and while many renovations have been done, it still retains much of its original vintage charm. I do apologize about the light bulb that was out. Please alert us in the future and we will send over maintenance right away to replace it. I am sorry the continental breakfast was not to your liking, and will be sure to have a conversation with the breakfast staff to make sure everything is being stocked and up-kept properly, as for many guests, the large selection at our continental breakfast is one of the pros of their stay. I will make sure to identify and correct any problems. Thank you again for your feedback, and have a great day!
