I was looking for an inexpensive hotel close to Metro and restaurants. I booked the hotel and was concerned with some of the negative reviews. The location was great - within a few blocks of Dupont Metro and choice of every type of eatery. Staff was friendly, helpful and greeted us with kindness. I requested a ''quiet room' after reading...

Dirty room, chipped paint, a very old manual elevator that you had to operate your self. Scary atmosphere and not a comfortable place, I have staid in low budget Hotels before but this was terrible. Do not stay here.

The good thing about this hotel is that it is VERY close to a metro station and if all you need is a place to sleep, it's on point. If you're looking for a hotel that has a lot of amenities, this isn't it. It does have a bar, but we didn't go there. The elevator is OLD and slow... More

Room: Very outdated and dull. Chipped paint. Very minimal. Not a lot of clothes storage space - no dresser, just a coat hanger closet. The bathroom was decent. The beds were clean but smelled of bleach. Beds were very uncomfortable but manageable. The room had no safe which I did not like. Hotel: Cool old hotel with a fun old... More

How can an amazing bar such as the Beir Baron Tavern be in such an awful hotel...The staff (Bartenders, cooks, servers and even the guy checking IDs) are the only reason for getting any stars... The staff down there was over the top with their service, delicious food and awesome beers! I will definitely make it a point to return... More

We booked this hotel based on its location and price. It's situated just off dupont circle, a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station and approx. a 30 minute walk from Washington mall and the surrounding monuments/museums. We stayed for 4 nights and were very pleased with the cleanliness, size and comfort of our room. The bed was comfortable... More

This hotel long long ago would have been pleasant, but lack of attention to modernizing has made it dwindle. Their central heating and cooling system was defunct. All public areas were very cold. The individual rooms had large window units for ac/heat but mine did not work properly. It went off and on constantly and the air coming out was... More
