The room was clean. The parking was free. The breakfast was unimpressive. My main complaint is the horrible shower. The water pressure was ok, but there were several bursts of extremely hot water...very uncomfortable.

for a busy city location this was a good choice,rates reasonable for DC, breakfast started at 6:30 so too late for us to eat there and catch our plane, rooms were not fancy but clean, simple bathroom, check-in lady was on the slow side but pleasant

You can walk 15 minutes south on Washington St and arrive at King St which is full of amenities. The room is basic but at least clean and with nice bedding. It is easy to miss as you drive by since its architecture blends into surrounding residential buildings. Overall it offers a good value for price. I would use again.

My stay was mostly satisfactory. An extra blanket would have been helpful. The shuttle was limited in time and capacity so that making a scheduled meeting could be difficult and returning from a evening out was out of the question. What surprised me was that the hotel is in a residential area so walking was out of the equation either... More

Nothing fancy. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The place is older and the rooms could use some updating and better craftsmanship. The hotel offers free breakfast and free parking which is a plus for the area. Breakfast offerings were sufficient.

I was fortunate to book this hotel via Groupon Getaways and have absolutely no regrets. It's your basic hotel but there are so many positives. The beds were comfortable. I arrived the day before the last snow storm of 2015 and it was c-c-cold and the room temperature was comfortable my entire stay. I really appreciated the complimentary shuttle to... More

Check-in was a bit slow. The room was a good size and felt relatively clean. The beds were comfortable. The room had a DVD player which is usually not found in a hotel room. The bathroom was a moderate size, but could use a little updating. The room directory said they had a free "24 hour open kitchen" that supplied... More

I loved this hotel, it wasn't high scale fabulous but great for the price. Very clean and cute both inside and out. The staff were overall extremely friendly and helpful. I would love to visit again, and great location to get to Old Town downtown, about 5 minutes away.

We had a very nice stay over President's Day weekend. The snow storm outside did nothing to take away the pleasant atmosphere inside the Best Western. Great accommodations and a very good breakfast buffet.
