If you're looking for a home-y stay in a hip neighborhood, look no further! If you're looking for all the bells and whistles of a traditional stay, you're in the wrong place. I personally LOVED this place. I was skeptical after reading some of the reviews, but it turned out to be great! I liked the non-traditional 'check yourself in,' which reminded me of an Air B&B and I had no trouble getting ahold of staff when I had a question. My room was comfy and quaint. Having to go downstairs for my private bath wasn't amazing, but they had robes so that was a cute touch. It wasn't far so it wasn't terrible and I literally only ran into another guest once my entire three day stay. I will say the bathroom was kinda surprising-there was just a showerhead in the wall between the sink and toilet!-but it was okay. I mean, it's an inn in an old townhouse, of course! One of my favorite features was the shared kitchen and living spaces. It was great to bring home leftovers and have fresh fruit and the lounge/eating areas were cozy and friendly. I felt like I was at home, not away, and that's what I liked most. There was also a self-serve breakfast area with some continental items and eggs. I'd definitely stay here again should I return to the same area of DC! :)

It’s definitely more of a bed and breakfast than a hotel. But overall good experience. Not a lot of staff on site but very responsive over phone.

Under construction
Thought I was staying in a suite and it was an old house under construction! Not a good part of town!

The local was perfect, but make sure you don’t get the basement room. It is very dark and damp. It has a shared kitchen and nice sitting area.

3/5 Okay

There does not appear to be any staff at this place. There was no breakfast or coffee. Overall, like staying in an unstaffed hostel.
