Place was really cute and comfy. The pillows were awful but otherwise we were very satisfied. I would return and just ask for more.

Disliked: Amenities
Pros: good value for the location. It was clean and I felt safe. Close to everything. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Cons: The room was very small. No in-room refrigerator, only a common refrigerator, and microwave. The safe was so small it did not fit a tablet. The housekeepers, although friendly, no one spoke English, so I could not communicate with them.

No parking garage. You have to find your own garage which the nearest one was 0.4 miles away. Front desk girl during the check in was rude.

Very clean and fresh room. Good location to the sites I wanted to visit. Room itself tight, but not uncomfortable. I’d stay here again.

Jessica
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The place is quite outdated, which is fine for the price. However, they haven't invested in relatively minor things (linens, pillows, better lighting) that could greatly improve the guest experience. The pillows need to be badly replaced as they're so flat, as do the AC units and towels. The shower took a whole 5 minutes to get warm, and was FINALLY hot when I was finished showering. The lighting was dim, as either some of the bulbs were out or the fixtures were broken (not sure which). The good things were it was quiet (although would i be able to hear ANYTHING else over the AC unit??), the location is handy and seemed quite safe, was clean enough, and the staff were nice. It's a doable stay if you're on a budget and aren't planning to spend much time in your room besides sleeping.

Very easy to get to, easy check in. So close to everything. I thought it would be priced higher because of how close it was to the Whitehouse. Very happy with it, stored our luggage on the last day, only a few minute walk to busses or metro that go to Union Station or the airport. (we flew into Reagan, 5 stops and 5 minute walk)
