A bit dated, but good overall
Breakfast was available for over 3 hours which was really nice. The beds and pillows were really comfortable! The staff was very friendly and helpful when we asked questions.
The room didnt have nearly enough outlets, and two of them we could find were either loose or something had problem in them. The overall hotel is a bit dated and you can see places that could use some work.
Everything about it is cheap
The price was good, and the location was close to the highway.
The shower temperature was a rollercoaster, no control over the room's heating/cooling unit, and the breakfast was very bland (just english muffins, bread, waffles, cereal, and some fruit slices). But the hotel was cheap so I guess you get what you pay for.
Called the front desk for more towels, told me I have to grab it myself. When I got to the front desk, they told me I cannot get 5 towels as I requested, cuz we have two beds in our room thus we are only allowed to have two people in our room, so we can only have two towels. Great service guys.
overpriced for a plain room with lame breakfast
You get what you paid for.
For a one night stay, it was a comfy room.
The staff decided to double charge me. I had asked if they is already charged it and told them it was showing up on my statement that they already had but they insisted that they knew what they were doing and ran cards all the time and I was being silly and ran it twice and had to go through an entire debacle with them and my bank to get my money back. Left the room with a bunch of bumps only to find out I had gotten bed bugs staying there.
Value Place to Stay
It is motel-style, which is fine. The pool looked very clean, and although we did not have a chance to use it, it looked like many people were enjoying it. The rooms themselves are older, which should be expected - it is a VALUE price, not luxury! They were clean, and the bathroom was clean. Towels and linens were clean. The daily breakfast was well-stocked right up until closing at 9:30 and had a good variety of food to choose from - small frozen omelets to warm up in microwave, make-your-own waffles, cereals, toast, muffins, hot oatmeal prepared with choices of toppings. The staff was very friendly and accommodated our every request (extra towels, do not disturbs). The room had a microwave, mini fridge, and coffee maker which was a nice surprise. The last stop on the yellow line of the Metro (Huntington) is within walking distance, so we were able to leave our car at the hotel (free parking) and ride the Metro in and out of D.C. both days we were there.
Perhaps some reviewers did not like that this was motel-style, or that the rooms were older. This is not advertised as a luxury hotel, and guests are not paying for a luxury hotel. This place was an excellent value for the money, and we were very happy.
Guard on Duty.
The bed seemed brand new, bath room was clean with fresh supplies. Sheets were clean, ample pillows and the room was pretty large.
When I first checked in there was a guard on duty and one night clerk. He was on the phone for 15 minutes making a reservation. A line stacked up while I waited to check in. My room was 3rd floor, and when I came in the lights wouldn't work. It was dark, long and I was creeped out. I got the lights on; and checked the room. There was a for between my room and one next door. It. WASN'T Locked!!!! I had to work for 5 minutes to get the dead bolt in that door to work! I was nervous half the night. Woke up with a red rash on my right hand and up my arm from the sheets. Also the desk lamp was broken, glued back together and someone broke a plug off in the light Jack. For the price, a good bed. But don't travel alone!
Location convenient to major highway. Brunch was okay. Staff were friendly.
Very dated. Worn. Exterior door to room leaked cold air excessively. This place needs a total gut or replacement. Not an easy walk to Metro station as advertised. No maps to station available either at front desk. Would not recommend this walk at night.
It was clean, the staff were nice. Free cold breakfast, ie. Cereal. It's a days inn so it's not a luxury hotel, but be great for a hot shower and clean bed.
Close to the ghetto but nobody bothered us.
affordable, close to highway nice mattresses great water pressure in shower
pictures online very misleading, room and faciltiy was very dated
The hotel was clean the neiborhood was nice, the metro is in 10 min walk distance, a Walmart and other shops and restaurant are also in a 10 min walkdistance. A good place to stay for a Washington DC visit.
