I was on a 4 night solo business trip to DC. This motel was near the metro, offered shuttle service and free hot breakfast at a reasonable price. The motel is clearly vintage, and the door open directly into the parking lot. The room was clean, the staff was amazingly attentive and helpful, the shuttle was convenient and regular. The... More

With the family flying into Arlington for a funeral, we didn't spend a great deal of time trying to master the economics of this trip. We just wanted to all be in the same hotel. We really lucked out. The hotel was so easy to get to from Reagan Intl. Everything went surprisingly smoothly. When we got to the hotel,... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights for June 2015. We got in the room and the a/c was hardly blowing any cold air. We moved to a different room and the a/c was not much better. By morning the temp. was 81 degrees. Unacceptable. We paid cash for 2 nights at this hotel. We decided after the a/c experience... More

First off I have to say thank you to Gabriella! I had an unexpectedly long stay, and she was able to accommodate me each day that I needed to extend! She was extremely helpful and responsive whenever I had a question. The breakfast was great, the rooms were kept clean and staff were friendly! I would definitely stay here again!

The staff were all very friendly and helpful with answering questions about the area and with any requests that we may have had. The food at bentley's was very good. It was a quick ride to our DC destination points. We... More

I just wanted to write to say I had a perfectly wonderful stay at your inn the past two days. Due to faulty AC at my home, I initially came to the Best Western because I had stayed there before. However, they were full up and recommended me to Governor House Inn. I have had a wonderful surprise. The people... More
