I can't say enough good things about Woodley Park Guest House. The location is excellent--a block from a metro station--and the area is very pleasant. There are a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance. The inn itself is lovely, and even my small third-floor room for one person was very nice. The service is outstanding, as are the... More

Woodley Park Guest House is a wonderful place to stay for families/students visiting American University or other surrounding schools in the area. Only three Metro stops from AU and a lovely place to retreat to after a long day to touring, visiting or move-in. Much better than going back to a generic hotel room - waiting for you is pleasant...

The Woodley Park Guest House is located directed across the street from a much more expensive, large chain hotel. The Guest House rooms were smaller than a typical hotel room, but comfortable and nicely furnished. The staff is friendly and helpful, and you are steps from the Metro, restaurants and the zoo. Breakfast is simple but tasty, and served buffet... More

Great property, very close to Metro station; short walk to National Zoo, not a bad walk to the National Cathedral. Comfy bed, extremely friendly owners and staff. Front porch was a real winner! The only (minor) drawback was the air circulation/air conditioning system that didn't pull all the humidity out. Free internet via ethernet cable in rooms; wi-fi in lobby.... More

Just stayed here for three nights having read the trip advisor reviews. It lived up to expectations for comfort, food and friendliness. Can't recommend it highly enough and would love to return. It was such a pleasure meeting and chatting with other guests. A real gem!

I chose Woodley Park Guest House from its excellent TripAdvisor reviews, and my stay there confirmed these. The location is unbeatable, my room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was just what I wanted, and the company of the other guests added to my enjoyment. Courtney and her team really looked after me. I'd stay there again and I'd recommend... More

My wife and I just ended a three-night stay at the Woodley Park Guest House and were very pleased with our choice, I was in town to attend a conference at the Wardman Park Marriott and selected Woodley as a cheaper, yet charming, alternative to the Marriott. (The Marriott is literally across the street.) The B&B is in a great... More

Woodley Park Guest House totally exceeded my expectations. All the staff are great, welcoming, helpful. I felt as if they really were there for us. I enjoyed some others I met who were staying there. Breakfast was great! Quiet respite in the big city. I would definitely stay here again! And i would highly recommend this guest house to others.

I recently (May 2015) stayed for 4 nights at the Woodley Park Guest House. I had a shared-bathroom single room on the 3rd floor, but never had 'bathroom access' problems. The room was good and the bed was comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent. The staff were very helpful when I needed some help with things - getting documents printed, directions to... More

I stayed over this amazing BnB for a conference and I have to tell you it was the most relaxing experience I had. Great atmosphere, amazing staff, great service overall!! Highly recommend for anyone traveling to DC. The guesthouse is in a great location near shops, restaurants, and subway transportation to anywhere you want to go in DC. WIFI 5/5
