Being listed as #1 place I had higher expectations. Four good things: tho on a main road (202) it was set back so it was quiet, the manager was nice, the bed was very comfortable and the shower head was large with good water flow.

My husband and I stayed here for a few days in July with my brother and his partner and loved it. I am returning for another stay this weekend with my son and his girlfriend. The Sentinel is clean and reasonable priced. The bed was comfortable, it was very quiet, and the staff were amazingly efficient, friendly, and responsive. As... More

This is what I would like to call "vintage". The room colors are very 1970s deep maroon. The bed was awesome. I swear they put 1000 count thread sheets on the bed. Even the table lamps were cool. And this place was SO clean! There was a big tv, microwave, and good sized motel fridge. I could have slept there... More

needed a place to stay near longwood gardens without breaking the bank, the rooms were spotless and the owners treated you like family. The rooms had a refrigerator, microwave, wifi and were very pleasant. set back from the road they were also quiet.

Bring your own!!! Air Conditioner worked well, there were enough plugs to charge our gadgets, little road noise as the motel is on a hill above the... More
