Staff were great and very helpful and the shuttle bus was a bonus. Good Value for money Shuttle bus to the Metro... 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!

We spent three nights at this hotel with a reunion of Vietnam veterans. The rooms were comfortable and clean. 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

Front desk staff is very good and enjoy taking care of you. Rooms clean and well taken care of. Location is good for Arlington, DC and surrounding areas. Pool is very nice and restaurant on site is also good.

I have travelled to the DC for years. I can say that most of my stays inside the beltway have been at over priced locations with minimal customer service. That changed in 2014 when I experience the Governor's House Inn while on my bike to take part in the "Run for the Wall" Memorial Day weekend. The staff from start... More

Room nothing like pictures. Bed was terrible, manager nice to flip mattress since it sagged in center. Carpet frayed and furniture old. WiFi horrible. GM very kind and did her best to get WiFi fixed but repairman said signal in areas of motel weak. I chose this property for price point and reviews but I suggest spending a few dollars... More

Sorry to learn of the disappointment, the pictures are of our rooms and we don't stage. I will be checking with Gabby to see what happened here, and we will be reaching out to make amends if she hasn't already. While the price point does reflects the condition - the beds are with in 3 years and wifi should have... More
