I knew it wasn't going to be great from the reviews and the price but decided to go with it as everything else close in Washington was at least double the price. The District did a fantastic job of exceeding my expectations on how bad it could be. When I arrived there was a sign at reception saying they'd be...

Location is great. Many great restaurants and bars in the area. Nice safe neighborhood. Room was very small, maybe like 7x9. No drawers for clothes, no closet or hangers. Carpet was worn, looked dirty and the floor was uneven. The bathroom was decent and the staff nice. Linens were clean.

Arrived late evening and given room 422. Which is not on the 4th floor. But, in the basement. It is disgusting. The walls are covered in glued-up plywood (seriously), with not even the pretense of paint or wall paper. Of course, half the wall paper is off the wall-papered wall, too. the old ac unit is plugged in the wall...

I arrived Washington with my family and Paul the person at the reception told us our reservation was not valid. It was the worst experience. I made the reservation through hostelwordwide. I got email from hostelworldwide the morning that I arrived and he said it is not valid. I showed the reservation number and everything and he did not even...

The smallest two bed room I've ever seen. So small. Wouldn't recommend to another. Paid in full and when I checked out, they changed me $180 for who knows what. Tried to contact them to find out what it was for but won't answer phone. Desk person sleeping on chair pillow when we went out one evening early.

The hotel itself is in need of refurbishment but for the price it is in a great location next to 14th St where there are lots of places to eat and drink and also only 15-20 min walk to the main sights in DC. I found my room to be very clean and I had no issues at all during...

This centrally located and human sized hotel gives you everything for reasonable money! Walking distance to everywhere in the downtown area, including a walking distance (10 min.) from the Union Station and 15 min. to the White House.

I had an event to attend during a weekday morning and booked last minute. I picked this motel because I didn't want to drive 50 miles in gridlocked traffic or spend $300 a night at a name brand 2 or decent 3 star hotel with this being a last minute reservation. For $300 a night, I want to be at...

We stayed at this hotel last week end. I´ll point out it´s positives as well as it´s negatives, not intending to damage the hotel´s reputation but as a constructive criticism. POSITIVES: Amazing location. You can walk from the hotel to the main attractions and the area seemed nice and safe. / The guy on reception lovely. /The soap they provide...

There are a few qualities about this hotel that are not ideal; it's an older building, and it's not terribly close to the metro, but it does possess a certain charm and the price is fair. What happened to my fiance and me on January 23, however, was unacceptable and compels me to warn prospective travellers. I awoke around 2:30...
