    The River Inn is absolutely perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is local to a Trader Joe’s so you can fill your full fridge yourself! The suites are an excellent feature and I plan to stay here again next time I’m here.

    We have stayed at The River Inn before and were excited to be back. Certainly the building shows its age a bit, but the suite was clean and the staff was wonderful. Due to Covid 19, there was no maid service but staff provided new towels, sheets, coffee, etc. whenever requested. They couldn't have been more helpful.

    The check in was very easy with a 24 hour staff helping you for any assistance. I loved the location of the River Inn allowing walking to the local grocery stores ,eateries especially during this difficult Virus time. The Metro station is convenient with a very short walk. I took the Metro to and from the Inn to Reagan International. The room was nice and I had a suite with a kitchen (microwave, Keurig with tasty coffee, creamer and artificial/sweet sugar, refrigerator, toaster and the amenities of dinnerware, dish soap and towels with forks and knives. The bath is equally accessorized with a hair dryer,soaps, conditioner, lotion and lots closet storage with a safe and a double bed. THE LG tv's are nice in two rooms. The couch is comfortable and an iron is available in a closet. Then there is a desk space should you need to work while there. I just cannot compliment the facility greater. I know the restaurant from breakfast has been shut temporarily but hopefully things will change.The neighborhood is cozy.
