Recently remodeled. Staff helpful. Italian Restaurant across the street delivers. Within walking distance of the train to Washington DC (Yellow Line). Only drawback is if traffic is backed up due to the bridge, it is hard to get in and out. Stayed for 2 days and this was only a problem once during rush hour traffic. Night clerk was awesome....

My review is primarily about a desk clerk named Sarah. She was exceptional. Very efficient and on top of everything. In response to my questions she gave us excellent suggestions as to transportation, directions and recommendations of restaurants and sights. The hotel is not the type loaded with amenities to make you want to stay there rather than enjoy the...

We pulled in after 9 pm on a Tuesday. The main lobby was locked and the desk clerk mouthed to me to used the back door. I entered a small room with a double pane window and space under to slip credit cards through. I am already feeling sketchy about my booking. She tells me that my room is around...

I was suppose to stay here and being from out of state I did not find this facility safe for a single lady being outside doors, poor lighting and location. I cancelled my reservations at 9PM on Saturday night for a room on Sunday and Monday night. I was disappointed they still charged me for one night because I was...

I don't often stay in roadside hotels/motels but there was an urgent need and this was available. It was only 45 minute commute into DC at 830am rush hour. 10 minutes without traffic. I opted to reserve on the king size deluxe rooms and booked for a super reasonable price last minute when all the DC hotels were jam packed...

My 11-year old daughter and I stayed for 3 nights to participate in the recent inauguration. They claimed restaurant and public transportation within walking distance. We tried it the morning of the inauguration. We had to walk a fast paced 15 minutes to the Metro. Upon our arrival, we elected to take a cab to Walmart for in-room snacks. The...

I stay at Red Roof about 70 days a year and I have never had a problem until this place. My issue is that I booked a room thru red roof's website at one price and upon checkout I was charged $20. extra. When I questioned the clerk, she grabbed my check- in sheet and asked if it was was...

This hotel is conveniently located to the Huntington Metro Station, a large number of places to eat, and only a few minutes' drive to Washington D.C. The rooms smelled like cigarette smoke even though the property is suppose to be 'non-smoking' but otherwise it was a great stay. The staff is friendly and the rates are reasonable.

I stayed at this hotel when I attended the 2016 Military Bowl. My standard king bed room was a little small, but very clean. Everything in the room worked like it was supposed to. The staff, especially Sarah and Cedrick were very professional and helpful. The hotel is about a mile from the Huntington Station which is a 'Yellow Line'...
