This is close to the interstate, so useful for an overnight if you are passing through and don't want the crazy prices and traffic of D.C. Room was fine on top floor, but the newish wood floors had not been cleaned in a while. Sticky and dirty flooring, so bad that I did not want to take off my shoes....

My first impression on arrival was being surprised the facility is called a Hotel, yet all of it's rooms have outdoor entrances. I expected the worst, after having read some pretty negative reviews about the property and it's rooms hygiene. We arrived at 1:00 AM - Saturday, July 18, and immediately received our Room Card Key. We were assigned a...

I was doing a short stay at this hotel so going in I wasn't looking for a whole lot as far as amenities. The rooms appeared to have been recently updated so the rooms were modern.

All rooms are new. The management rent out rooms closest to the elevator first until the entire inn is sold out. Room was kept cool during the hot weather. Convenient locationto public transportation, metro yellow line via 171, Fairfax Connector bus. This hotel is on Richmond Highway close to Huntington cross road.

We stayed here 4 nights. The room was clean, staff friendly. Wifi spotty. Location ok. One restaurant within walking distance, basically a pizza carry out with a small seating area. Traffic was bad with two of the 4 days having a gridlock on Richmond St. Good value.
