My sisters and I take a sister trip each year. This year we decided to travel to Washington DC to see the site of our Nation's Capitol. So glad we stayed at this Hotel. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the hotel owner and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The hotel location was perfect for... More

The owner, Dave and staff were excellent and very helpful. It made our vacation so much better because we stayed there. Booked one night but liked it so much we extended our stay for three more nights. Dave even told us other things to do and see on the way to our next destination. Everyone was so nice and attentive... More

Guest friendly, budget friendly inn in Northern Virginia. Manager, Dave, goes out of his way to be personally helpful with his guests. Convenient location with East Falls Church metro station about 2 miles away. Maybe in the future, some sort of shuttle service to and fro from the station would surely boost this Inn's demand. Wouldn't mind paying a small... More

I wish to affirm all of the great ratings. This is an outstanding budget friendly inn. All of the staff are most concerned that guests have a good stay and go well beyond what anyone would expect.

This is the best INN in Northern Virginia. Dave is the best host and makes you feel like a family member instead of a guest. The staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. For added safety there is a lifeguard on duty at the pool, something you don't find at many hotels . Rooms were comfy with microwave,... More

I have never written a review of a hotel/ motel/ inn before but felt especially compelled to do so after our stay at the Governor House Inn. The owner/ manager Dave was like no other, almost making us feel as though we were the only people staying at the hotel (which we weren't). From the minute we checked in, he... More

A friend and I left one area motel out of disappointment to fall into the welcoming arms of those involved with the Governor House Inn. The owner/operator and staff were exceptional. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Proximity to area attractions: The Mall, MLB, etc is quite manageable. We were guests for four nights and never disappointed. Make no mistake,... More
