Rugs and floors were dirty. The pool area was nice but dirty. The shower head was the lowest I have seen. The price ws good but I... More

Didn't want to pay the high price of a DC hotel so we stayed at this hotel. It's an OK hotel. The room was clean but the beds were not so comfortable. Staff was very helpful and the free breakfast was more than adequate. Plenty of parking and many local restaurants. There is a Metro station about 2 miles from... More

Needed a room for a night close to the football stadium. This was perfect for the price and how close it was. The rooms are old and out dated but relatively clean. The breakfast is ok at best, but did work. Indoor pool and hot tub is a nice touch.

Great place to stay staff was very friendly and courteous. Location is great to visit the Washington c.f. area! Also great for parents who have college students at the university of Maryland! Lot of great restaurants within walking distance too.

My only problem is that there's a pattern of loud sex at this hotel. I've stayed here three times, and it seems like it's the place that men like to take their side women or something. But the breakfast is nice. It's weird how there's a person to make the waffles but ok. The rooms are clean and don't smell... More

Came here because it was not too far from D.C. There are good and things about this hotel. Let's start with the good. The breakfast staff is very nice and will make waffles for you, the room is very spacious, there is a huge swimming pool, and there is a delicious restaurant next door to the hotel. However, there were... More

The room facing outside is horrible. Carpet is not dry and the room doesn't smell fresh. Front desk is unfriendly, not professional and not willing to help. Don't be deceived with the photo/pictures on their website. It's not as nice as they look. Breakfast is alright but the boiled egg tastes horrible.

I spent 1 night here out of necessity. Booked it on Priceline for well under advertised price. The hotel is sprawling and the layout is very confusing. The lobby is poorly lit, with narrow hallways and blind corners where people could hide. I felt unsafe in the hotel. Once in my room, I locked the door and didn't go back... More
