My company is in the construction trade, and we send our crews out for weeks at a time. We've stayed in over 100 hundred hotels in the last few years and without a doubt, The Governor House Inn has been the best of all of them! The manager, Dave Crance, is beyond willing to accommodate our crew needs, the large... More

We enjoyed our stay so much! Now this place is definitely not the Ritz but it served our purpose, a place to sleep. The staff are awesome which made up for so much! The shuttle to the metro helped in keeping within our budget too! Thank you for a great trip!

Staying here you will find the staff very friendly, especially Dave the manager, who will do everything he can to make you happy. The hotel is dated to the point where you feel as though your taking a step back in time. The rooms are clean, but items in the rooms (carpet, thermostat, plumbing, lighting, etc.) appear to be 20+... More

I was slightly skeptical as we drove up, but this Inn is a great example of "you can't judge a book by its cover". All of the the staff were welcoming and friendly. The prices are very affordable. The rooms are comfortable. You really can't beat the value - especially the "Bed and Breakfast" deal. Breakfast at Bentley's was amazing.... More

My husband and I just stayed at the Governor House Inn and we had a great experince. The staff are great! From the manager all the way to the housekeeper. Even though we had an incident, we recommend this hotel for their great value, service, cleanliness and closeness to D.C. Thank you so much.

I enjoyed my stay at Governor House Inn in March 2014, and I'd return to this hotel if I need a room in Northern Virginia again. PROS: -Extremely friendly and helpful staff. From the reception hosts to housekeeping to the manager, everyone at Governor House bends over backwards to make guests feel welcome and cared for. Dave the manager went... More

mtburr, Wow - I have to give an extreme thanks for this review! I think you drilled my challenges and painted a very accurate picture of our entire establishment. Really with no brand corporate office tower in some far away place to report back to I don't have to respond with cookie cutter excuses and apologies. Honestly I think a... More

You know one day I think instead of Inn Keeper I'll be able to afford to hire someone with a fancy title like: Guestservicesrelationshipcoordinator@Insertbrandhere.com Then they can respond with a "Insert form excuse letter or thank you letter here" then I won't feel so troubled when I fall behind on responding to these. Actually can't see it as it's important... More

The hotel's staff was really nice and helpful. The service of transportation to the metro station was awesome, really useful for not driving to DC. The rooms are big and clean. However, it seems the heating/AC is too old, since it makes a terrible sound when it is working.

Ale P., Thank you for staying with us and especially taking the time to share the experience! The Desk and the Shuttle teams have gotten a little competitive on these reviews as out of no where the shuttle drivers see to be making the biggest impact. I share the comments with the entire team and reviews like this are a... More

Normally with a good price comes the bad experiences, but in this case I have to say 'not at all'. I recently stayed at this hotel with my family looking to stay at an affordable hotel considering that our trip to Washington, DC would be more expensive by staying in Washington. So instead we looked for an alternative and affordable... More

Benita, First my apologies on not responding to the review sooner - I never expected to be this busy and with the older building it's been keeping me running but this season should allow us to finish restoring her if it maintains this pace......
