Staff was friendly, so that was not the issue. Upon entry, the room smelled very musty. The toilet was broken and maintenance was gone, so we were moved to another room. Again, the AC in this room smelled musty. I turned it off because I did not want to get legionnaires. The room was hot and humid as a result... More

Stayed 1 night in Room 226 of this Hotel for an affordable weekend trip to DC with my boyfriend. Honestly, why stay anywhere else? First of all, parking is free. Second of all, being that both my boyfriend and I are 20, it was nearly impossible to find a decent place to stay without the check-in age being 21, until... More

This is close to the interstate, so useful for an overnight if you are passing through and don't want the crazy prices and traffic of D.C. Room was fine on top floor, but the newish wood floors had not been cleaned in a while. Sticky and dirty flooring, so bad that I did not want to take off my shoes.... More

My first impression on arrival was being surprised the facility is called a Hotel, yet all of it's rooms have outdoor entrances. I expected the worst, after having read some pretty negative reviews about the property and it's rooms hygiene. We arrived at 1:00 AM - Saturday, July 18, and immediately received our Room Card Key. We were assigned a... More

We stayed here for two nights (2 families). It was convenient to the Huntington metro stop, and rooms were clean and the staff helpful. The interiors were updated although there was already some signs of wear and tear, but one of the better motels we have stayed at, and the price makes it one of the best deals in the... More

We did not reach the hotel till 3:30am due to delayed flights into Reagan National and to make matters worst couldn't find the Hotel until many stops. However it was nice that they held our (3) rooms as the Hotel was sold out. They had our reservations on the desk and the clerk immediately checked us in. The rooms were... More

I was doing a short stay at this hotel so going in I wasn't looking for a whole lot as far as amenities. The rooms appeared to have been recently updated so the rooms were modern. The rooms are very small so don't expect to have a spacious room. For my short stay it served its purpose and check in... More

All rooms are new. The management rent out rooms closest to the elevator first until the entire inn is sold out. Room was kept cool during the hot weather. Convenient locationto public transportation, metro yellow line via 171, Fairfax Connector bus. This hotel is on Richmond Highway close to Huntington cross road.
