I was a bit hesitant about staying here after reading some other reviews but my stay was quite pleasant. I was in room 209 and it was spacious and clean. As for the train line behind the hotel...yes you can hear, and feel the trains in the morning and at night. You can feel them move the floor too! But... More

This place deserves to be burnt down and rebuilt from scratch. It's not only too old, it's filthy. We had to cut our stay short after we saw something really disgusting coming out of the juice fountain! The staff was clueless. The TV is ancient and no remote. 2 clear visible channels only, and the rest was all blurry. We... More

We had never been to Washington DC. So now that I'm retired off we go. I'll start with the positive, being in management for 36 years during a reveiw you start with the positive. The room was clean and only two miles from Union Station. Great local very close to all the sight seeing stuff. Well that's the positive. The... More

I had booked a non-smoking room, king-size bed. Instead I got 2 double beds (which was OK) and a SMOKING room; it reeked of smoke. When I sent back to the front desk to ask, again, for a non-smoking room, I was offered room spray - there were no N/S rooms. The carpet was so dark you couldn't tell if... More

Staying here now. Frantically trying to find another place. It's far from the main city and the least clean, shadiest place I've ever stayed. I'm not joking. I've stayed in hostels and motel 6's and this is by far the absolute worst. Stay here under no circumstances. I'm contemplating sleeping in my car.

Poor customer service. I felt they didn't give a hoot about my experience, and really didn't care. Ice machine didn't work, almost every day the key card wouldn't work, so even though I got back to the room tired, hot and hungry, I'd have to go to the office and wait and wait until they could fix my key card....
