I have stayed here both times that I have visited DC. The prices are extremely cheap compared to the surrounding area. The continental breakfast has a massive selection and hot bar. The best feature by far is the complimentary shuttle that will take you and pick you up from the airport, metro station, and Old Town King Street area. We...

I agree with other people hotel is in a old hotel. They have done a great job keeping it clean and up to date. They had shuttle available to take us to Metro and even took us to Old Alexandria area for dinner. Great breakfast and a great experience for families doing DC on not wanting to pay to stay...

This hotel was extremely difficult to find. We had to ask people on the street, and they couldn't give directions. The person at the desk could not give as adequate directions. The GPS also could not locate the hotel properly either. Hotel desk people need to know where they are, so they can tell this to travelers.

We stayed here b/c it was across the street from where we used to live. We have stayed at other BW and it was pleasant. This is a 2 to 3 star hotel. We asked about the shuttle to the metro and we were not told we needed to add our names to the list and the driver got pissy...

Old charming hotel very clean and kept up. Staff excellent. Stephen very helpful with directions and resturants. Jermiah shuttle us to old town, metro and even to the grocery store was very helpful. The only negative was the breakfast room was down stairs. There was a handicap lift that could be used but did not know how to use it.

We stayed at this property seven years ago and it was just as good as we remembered. I have health issues and needed a first floor room and Stephen who checked us in went above and beyond to make it happen. Woody and Jeremiah the shuttle drivers were engaging and knowledgeable about the area and were always on time. The...

Stayed one night, and I'm glad that was the only night. If I hadn't been with other guests, I would have left. The only positive thing was that the staff was friendly. Walls in the room were dirty and yellowed and had small white sections that had been either cleaned or repainted. Didn't want to think about why. Shower and...

This Best Western did not have a clearly visible sign showing where it was. If you missed it you had to drive miles out of the way to turn around. There is no elevator, it is right in the flight path of Regan Airport and they didn't even have a ice machine. (Although they had made up little individual bags...
