We spent three nights here. Our room was comfortable and clean and surprisingly quiet. We took advantage of the complimentary shuttle to the metro station to go to D.C. (very convenient). My only complaint is that I had to call twice for pickup the first night-somehow the shuttle driver didn't get the message the first time. Overall it was a...

In planning my trip to D.C., I was searching for a hotel with good rates, close to the metro, and decent rooms. That is exactly what I received from this hotel. It is not the "5-Star Luxury" kind of hotel if that is what you are looking for during your stay; however, it is clean, with polite staff, and a...

We chose to stay here for our trip to Washington, D.C. As I was a first time driver in the states, I wanted somewhere easy to get to, with transport to the attractions. After reading reviews, I was a bit unsure of what to expect. The hotel is situated on a main road but I had no trouble getting in...

Room was clean but the overall facility was a bit worn. The shuttle to the Metro was very convenient and available from early morning until 10:30 pm but again the van was in need of some updating. The free breakfast was very good to start off the day. Overall good place to stay if you are getting up and out...

I am sorry that you felt our hotel is "a bit worn" We renovated all of our guest rooms and public areas over the past few years and work on continual improvements each year. I do understand your comment on the van that was being used during your stay, it is our older 'spare' van which was being used for...

We were given a a 2 room suite which was very nice. The hotel is well located for sightseeing. The down side is that it is an older hotel and the corridors could use a cleaning as well as the carpeting in the rooms..

Arrived very late, no problem with check in but were charged a $35.00US pet fee. I understood that it was a $25.00 charge and I already thought that was ridiculous. The beds were very comfortable & no problems with the hotel other than the cost.

Please accept my apology for any confusion with the amount of our pet fee. While it was $25.00 in 2015, it has been $35.00 for over a year. As with everything, costs go up. The pet fee pays to have the carpet and all soft goods cleaned after a guest with a pet checks out as well as the cost...

Stayed 2 nights while heading to the Hudson Valley. We wanted to spend 1 day touring DC. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the Metra Rail station. Great shuttle & pleasant drivers.

I stayed here for two nights in while attending a class in Alexandria. The hotel is close to a number of restaurants and offers free parking and breakfast.

Ok , so I think the idea is to check in and never check out. Checked in this afternoon and completed process in less than five minutes.
