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

In lack of better accomodation we booked this hotel 2 days prior to arrival. We stayed two nights. Check in was motel standard. Ordinary. The rooms are clean and nice. No complaints there. The side door (into the hotel) card swipers does not work. We decided to have breakfast at the hotel the first day. This was the most awkward... More

Thank you for your review. However, I am certainly disappointed by the lack of professionalism you experienced on the shuttle. We pride ourselves in great customer service as I suspect you saw throughout the rest of the property. Your experience falls way below our standards. We are very much aware of the issue that took place that day and it... More

We liked this place because we were on a very tight budget. It's far enough outside D.C. to beat the city prices, but if you avoid rush hour, still only about 20 minutes from the capitol building. The room was clean and comfortable, and housekeeping staff were great. As was true for a couple other reviewers, we didn't use the... More

This is a great place to stay if visiting Washington. Its outside the city and it is quiet. Had the best sleep outside from my own bed. The beds were very comfortable and the room was spacious. We even had a balcony with rocking chairs. Nice indoor pool and gym. We didnt eat at the restaurant but it seemed nice.
