My family stayed here for 3 nights while visiting DC. The rooms were quite comfortable and they had no problem with 5 of us in the room. Breakfast was typical but good and the staff was really nice. The location right at the highway exit was ideal. We ended up driving into DC 2 days and it was quite easy... More

Stayed here for 4 nights on a recent family trip to DC. Room was clean & bedding comfortable. Minifridge was helpful to have with the family. Breakfast is complimentary & offerings are pretty much what you would expect -- although it was crowded & a number of flies were on the food. We only had breakfast there once because of... More

For the rates and location this is great. Has free parking and free shuttle to the Van Dorn street metro station. The shuttle arrive very quickly after you call them. The location is great and has many fast food places within walking distance. The access to DC thru Metro is a breeze. The breakfast is included and is usual with... More

Having stayed in Central Washington DC previously, we found that the city has more to offer than you'd think, and even two weeks isn't enough time to fit everything in!! This (our third visit to DC) needed to be a little different, with the addition of a hire car to allow travelling further afield. We needed somewhere to stay that... More

This hotel is only a five minute drive from the Washington Monument, Arlington National Cemetery and many other Washington attractions. It has a nice complimentary breakfast, with scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, toast, yogurt, cereal, fruit, bagels, etc. The room was clean and comfortable. Free Wi-Fi, free parking. I will stay here again.

We had a great experience during a recent stay. In fact, this was our second stay after a nice visit four years ago.Rooms were clean, and breakfast was good. Most importantly, the staff were genuinely helpful and friendly, from the front desk to the cleaning staff to the van driver. I always appreciate friendly staff who are glad to go... More

There was nothing particularly good or bad about the rooms. There was a shuttle to the Van Dorn Metro station that we took both days - very efficient, we never had to wait. Parking is free. You will need a car if you want to go anywhere since it is not walking distance to anything. Staff was friendly. We booked... More

we were "upgraded" to a suite on the 7th floor. it was a little noisy (traffic) and not the most luxurious. the free breakfast was basic but adequate. the hotel was spotless throughout. the suite was quite roomy -- as was the shower (no tub, which was fine with us). we had a microwave and mini-fridge. staff were uniformly helpful....

Three of us stayed here July 16th to 20th, 2014. We enjoyed our stay. We had a room with two queen beds, microwave and refrigerator. It was very clean and the beds slept well. They served a good breakfast in the morning, with eating indoors or outside. They also have a snack bar in the afternoon and night, which we... More
