I do not usually stay in motels but there were absolutely not rooms anywhere and it was a last minute business trip. The rooms were definitely clean. they were outdated and that made them a bit less desirable (I may be spoiled by hotels though). The room did have a fridge and coffee maker which was a plus and the... More

The hotel is located little bit romoted from Washington DC, but they offer very convenient suttle van to the nearest Metro station, for both sending and picking up. So for the visitors to DC, that is a good choise for not expensive hotel and better transpotation. The room is simple and the facilities are not new, but the bed is... More

LOVED the large room! Great beds! Very warm and caring staff! The toilet/bathing area is separate from the sink/closet area, so there is more privacy than in many motels. Also, THIS IS THE FIRST MOTEL I'VE EVER BEEN IN THAT HAD ENOUGH TOWEL RACKS!!! This is an older facility and rooms are in several separate wings, but while there have... More

A cousin who lives locally recommended the Governor House Inn. We were quite pleased. Though it is an older hotel it is immaculate and the people are so friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was excellent with eggs, bacon, waffles plus cereal and breads. We will definitely stay there again. The price? Slightly more than half what we had paid... More

My husband and I stayed here for eight days to visit our nation's capitol. Even though this motel is in the process of upgrading the facilities, they continue to provide clean comfortable rooms. More importantly Inn Keeper Dave, Manager Gabriella and all of the staff were cheerful and more than willing to make our stay enjoyable, including tips on sightseeing... More

From information prior to traveling through checkout, the staff at the Governor's Inn was amazing! We came from California, so were completely unfamiliar with the area and the Metro. One of their staff talked me through getting from Dulles Intl. to the Inn via the amazing DC Metro system a few days prior our trip, which boosted our confidence greatly.... More

I stayed there with my three kids for three nights. The room was clean and the beds were nice and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was good. It included coffee, juice, eggs, bacon, cereal, toast, muffins, apples, yogurt, and a Belgian waffle maker. It is easy to take the metro into the city and the... More

I researched trip advisor and other sites for about an hour before choosing to stay at Governor House in for our DC trip during April 2015. This hotel has great value for the price we paid. We were greeted at check in very warmly and to my surprise a cookie was waiting for me. The room had what we needed.... More

Governor House Inn is a superior hotel for the business traveler looking for the most bang for the buck during an extended stay. Gabriella, the business manager, and her staff are extremely attentive. They treat all their guests with the same level of interest, ensuring from check in to check out that their stay goes well. I recently spent four... More
