The hotel was picked because of our tour reservations that were nearby. The hotel really needs to be updated. The room was clean, but the sofa and chairs had seen better times. The staff was friendly and willing to help out with directions etc... The complimentary breakfast did not offer a lot of choices, and needed some yogurt and fresh... More

This facility is a short drive south of DC but offers a phenomenal view of aircraft on final approach to Andrews AFB. The rooms feel a little dated. The food is not memorable but there are good restaurant choices nearby. What makes this hotel valuable is their competitive pricing. There is a decent sized inside pool and good exercise facilities.... More

So, I was a little bit wary based on some of the reviews, but the price was great, so we decided to give it a shot and I have no complaints at all. It is about 30 minutes from Washington, not a bad drive into the city. There isn't much in the immediate vicinity, but that was okay. The room... More

The hotel was clean the beds were comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was ok it could have been better. The pool was nice and i liked the fact that it was a restaurant on site and a live band. My overall experience I would stay there again when im in town.

Stayed here in August 2014. Rooms were clean but very dated and beat up. Bed was great, and one friendly maid. Our meals were a part of the business trip and they were mediocre at best; I had to ask for condiments. Exercise classes were $10 a person, normally if you are a guest they are free? Not much in...

The location is an easy commute into DC with free shuttle services to the metro. The beds were comfortable. Those are the only positive amenities!!!! The pictures are very misleading!! Room was never cleaned. Pool not open, and bar closes when it wants not on scheduled hours. We let management know so that they were aware of the problem. Felt... More

The first room they assigned us to have a smoke alarm that kept getting activated. The front desk and security told us it was normal for the moisture to trigger it. After the third time we demanded to be moved to another room. The breakfast is terrible. The alleged buffet consists of three items. The pool and hot tub were... More

This hotel is worth the money. I came to DC for an internship during the summer and wasn't quite sure if this hotel would meet my needs. After all, I didn't know where Clinton, MD was and I needed direct access to the metro in order to get back and forth to work. I called the hotel and the front... More

This hotel is beautiful inside and out, nice elegance in a convenient location - very close to DC, NASA, Six Flags, and other surrounding attractions on the DC beltway. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Beds are okay - double beds are a bit small and the mattresses could be better but beds are good enough for a good night's sleep.... More
