Decent hotel for the price
Posted Apr 2, 2016
Very old style... Very old things... At least now the TVs are more modern than the one in the picture. Definitely bed bugs even outside of the bed... Come prepared to put everything in a bag and do not bring them into your home. The only reason I stayed here is because I was on a budget during conference time that I booked for late. But, if you can afford not to stay here, or can find a better hotel for the same price by booking ahead of time, then do so. It was okay because I only used the hotel for sleeping, only spent 8 hours there, sleeping and getting ready. The TVs have Comcast but if you want to watch on demand movies (the ones for free), you can't because no one knows the password.
The showers were pretty clean fortunately. However, the towels seemed old as they were pretty tough and washed out. Also, the blankets in the closet had holes in them. I kept freaking out because I thought the holes were giant bed bugs but thankfully those appeared clean. The wifi is also weak...
For the pros: within walking distance of Adams Morgan's, close to bus stops to get to museums, cheap, and decent breakfast (always on time). Also had an old but functional fridge and iron --- but dysfunctional coffee maker and hair dryer. Honestly, this place would be great if they invested more on cleaning the carpets, getting new towels and blankets, changing the bulbs, etc.

Hello Elegua, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. The property was built in 1926 and has been transformed and updated many times. For our future guests we must make it clear that we have a very thorough staff that makes sure there are no bugs in any of the rooms of our hotel. Also we have professionals that routinely service the hotel to avoid any such thing. As most can tell from previous reviews, our guests are always impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of their accommodations. We offer 400 channels on our Televisions, including HBO and Cinemax. The password you mentioned is there to block the on-demand channels. We do not offer them. There are small refrigerators and ironing equipment in all the rooms. We do not provide coffee makers in the rooms but do offer free coffee and tea in the breakfast room throughout the day. Also, some of the hairdryers on the wall of each bathroom work by turning on the wall switch. For our future guest, please call down and ask if there is anything in your room that we can help you with.
