The Bolger Center is a hidden gem in close proximity to Washington DC and Baltimore. Best bet is to go the nearest Metro station to go to Washington, DC and avoid the hassle of traffic and parking. Price is great, and the landscaping is beautiful, relaxing, peaceful. Food at Osgood's is magnificent. Food selection at Pony Express Bar and Grill... More

I spent 2 nights in this center. To summarise: noisy air conditioning system, small room, bath with old mixing valve (very difficult to tune), no mixing valve on the washbasin, no fridge. But the WiFi was ok and the staff is very pleasant. Ok for business but not much.

I have never met a more friendly and hospitable staff. Everyone was as accommodating as they could be. Anything you might need, they will provide it. I was there for a week of corporate training and it felt like half work, half vacation.

I just stayed for a 2 day retreat with my church organization and this center was perfect! The food was great even though I was on a special eating plan (no dairy, no processed foods, lots of fruits and veggies) The grounds are beautiful with a fitness trail, walking trail and lots of benches to sit in quiet contemplation. My... More

Visiting my mom at assisted living 2 miles from Bolger center. This is the 4th visit and I love it here. The grounds are lovely, the staff is very accommodating and the facility has everything I need. There are refreshment hubs with lots of goodies. My last visit I was awakened at 6 am with fire alarm. Management gave me... More

I am here for a conference and have been less than thrilled. First of all the room is smaller than an inside cabin on a cruise ship - quite literally 10x12 with a bathroom so small that I have to close the door to get to the toilet and the "counter" overhangs the toilet causing you to have to lean...

We stayed at the suite and the sofa bed for our 15 year old grand daughter was very bad. The air conditioning was not working so we asked for a room change. When we changed rooms to a different part of the building we had the same problem. We finally figured out that in the master room the thermostat had... More

The Bolger Center's location turn out to be an ideal meeting point for our family, some of whom stopped by for a night on the way to other vacation spots. Excellent access by car, plenty of free parking, but also close to public transit options and D.C. Facilities were probably most suited to the older two generations of our three-generation... More

Our stay was fine. Nothing super problematic, although the "inflatable" bed on the pull out couch was anything but comfortable. the decor is dated and the pool has very limited hours during the week leaving many in our group disappointed as they had all been looking forward to swimming with the kids. On the upside was the breakfast buffet, which... More
