We stayed two nights at this hotel and found it to be quite comfortable even though it didn't have as many amenities as the newer hotels. The staff was very accommodating when we had special requests and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

Don't let first impressions fool you! This is not one of those new roadside inns but the beds were comfortable, sheets were clean and the breakfast was very good. The rooms need a little updating but they get the job done... The rooms stayed dark with the curtain pulled long after the sun was up. Parking was no problem and... More

We stayed one night in this nice motel while touring colleges recently. GHI is not a high rise luxury hotel, but a very pleasant roadside motel. The grounds were very well kept. We didn't get to enjoy the pool because of the weather but I noted that it was very neat and clean and all the chairs looked to be... More

Governor House is no luxury hotel, but it's an excellent value. The least expensive place I've stayed in the DC area, it's got free parking and free wifi, and that right there is a bargain. The bed was comfortable, everything in the room worked, and there was a quick bite to eat in the morning, too. (Don't count on much... More

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to share. I always appreciate the reviews that stress that we are an older Inn from the 50's. These definitely help the guest in making a decision. But Breakfast should have been better than described and I've spoken with them on that. Thank you again for taking the time... More

The room I had was quiet and on the back side of the hotel. However, the carpet covering the walkway outside the rooms was very worn and torn in many places. The room had no frig or safe that I read about in other reviews so if this is important to you double check if your room will have these.... More

kkalto, At first glance the title of the review was disappointing to see - BUT your review strikes me as very very accurate! Thank you for the suggestions regarding the ac instructions and mentioning to guests to insure which room they are reserving.

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it.......it's exactly as the hotel-provided overview reads. We found it to be a clean, comfortable, well-ventilated room....and 3x the size of the previous night's stay at Motel 6.

This place is only good if you're just passing by to sleep. It's a little towns motel type. They leave the door open until you get in the room. It was July when we came and it was super HOT. So, the AC was not ON when we get in our room. We had to turn it ON. The room... More

Two of us stayed for four nights and took the Metro into DC each day in mid-May. I was apprehensive about staying at GHI after reading some of the reviews, but decided to gamble for the great 24-hour sale price. I was always pleased with the helpfulness of the staff. The room was quiet, clean, and in pretty good shape.... More

Room was very clean. The staff was very friendly and courteous.Shuttle service was great, very close to metro.Pool was very nice with a lifeguard on duty. If your looking for a motel thats clean,family friendly, affordable, this one can't be beat with all that it offers for the price. We want to go back to D.C. in the near future.... More
