Hallway was 85F degress while the rooms were 50f. Rooms are not up to my standards. I'm used to staying in a hotel not a motel. There was no bible. Not a nice hotel at all. I'm currently in the hotel while writin this. Very noisy, security around at all hours during night. Not nice at all.

After traveling from NYC and touring Washington all day, we(50 8th graders and 10 teachers and me the tour escort) arrived to find a couple of problems with our reservations. With the great help of Nancy and her staff the problem was solved in less than 5 minutes. Thanks Nancy and Clarion for making our stay a real pleasant one.

i cannot tell you how pleased we were with our service. Traveling with 103 students + 9 adults is more than challenging. thank you ot Faziz and nancy for making this a perfect field trip. They have the patience of 1000 saints, extremely tolerant and accomodating to whatever we requested. Thank you so much! M Heffler Dobbs Ferry MS

Dear Guest : I am sorry for the inconvenience you experienced. All the rooms in the Fundome were from your wrestling team. We as a hotel allowed them to have a good time as they were all part of the same group. If you would have called the front desk that night to quite the noise in the fundome, we... More

This was the NOISIEST hotel that I have ever stayed in. If you only want a place to shower and change you clothes then this is the place for you. If you want to sleep, go somewhere else. Not only were “quiet hours” not enforced, the rooms themselves were not conductive to a quiet nights sleep. You could every person... More

My stay at this hotel was very pleasant. It was a nice hotel with clean rooms. The bathrooms are a little small, but for the price it is overall a good stay.
