the hotel room is really filthy and small. the staff is not nice. the environment is not safe. If you have small children or if you are a woman, don't stay there. We plan to stay 5 nights there, but after one night, we have to change to another hotel.

We didn't really pick this hotel...Priceline put us here after we made a fairly low bid for the DC area. Is this sounding like an excuse already? When checking in, I'd say most people like to look around and take things in. We like to look at the bathroom, check out the coffee maker and TV, etc. We eventually get... More

This place was miles out of the way from the metro station and was pretty ghetto. People fighting outside, what not. Avoid.

Do Not stay at this hotel. It is very old and needs to be torn down. It is in a bad area of town and we heard gunshots during the night. There were gaps at least a dime wide at the bottom of the door, perfect for rodents and roaches. There was mold growing everywhere. The bathtub had black stains... More

Well.. I must admit, the place creeped me out a bit, but that's mainly because I read the reviews on Tripadvisor beforehand. It's hard for me, as a foreigner, to understand if Silver Spring, is a perfectly safe place or if there are any streets/neighbourhoods to avoid. I didn't came across anything, but there are quite a lot of kids... More

I've read some of the reviews and I have to disagree with most people. I stay here quite a bit on Business and while it's not a 4 star place it has a lot going for it. 1) The rates are reasonable. For DC and access to downtown Silver Spring this place is competitively priced. 2) There's a lot close... More

Sorry to write a bad report, but this place is not safe, It is much better than the early reports indicate, but it is not a safe place at all. The door did not lock with any assurance. A gun shot outside the room in the middle of the night woke us, bullet richochet marks inside our room also told... More

I was looking for a place close to NIH that didn't cost $220 a night. This place seemed reasonable online for only $80, and when I first checked in, despite the glass separating me from the hotel clerk, the staff at least seemed helpful and friendly. The area is the type of place that is safe during the day but... More

I booked this room based on the Days Inn website photo's which seemed like a nice little place, withen walking distance to the metro. Well, I found the check in with the bullet proof glass to be a little sketchy. Then the urine odor in the corridor was a little unsettling. The bathroom couldn't have possibly been scoured between guests... More

We booked this hotel for one reason -- it was cheap and relatively close to the red line into DC. Unfortunately, despite the hotel saying they were within a short walk, it's closer to 15-20 minutes, especially if you're with older folks. The area immediately around the hotel is also somewhat shady. There are few restaurants or other establishments that... More
