If you are reading this review, chances are your company/department etc has chosen to do a training event at this location. I had heard about the NCC years before I went there and it filled me with dread. I cna say that it's not as bad as some people make out. It's not a 5 star resort, but it's not... More

It's hard to call this place much more than a dormitory, and a worn out one at that. I had issues with my toilet the entire time I was there. They did attempt to fix it the first day I was there, but the repair only slowed down the leak. The shower light/fan combo went out the next day, the... More

I rarely write negative reviews but feel that one is warranted in regard to this property. If you are contemplating a stay at this location, it is likely that it is part of a company retreat or other organized meeting; thus, you may have no choice but to attend. With that in mind, I offer the following review. This is... More

I stayed here recently for a grant review along with the previous reviewers and discovered a new low in American hospitality. The conference center is 15-20 miles from Dulles Airport so not convenient. They offer a shuttle for $20 but pay close attention to the time they've scheduled your pick up because there's a good chance they will plan to... More

My dorm and cabin days are over. Wish I had known that's what I was getting into with this place. I would have brought stamps to write letters home to my parents to tell them how miserable I was in this army barracks type maze. Good news is you get a lot of steps in with all the walking -... More

The shuttle from the airport is expensive (e.g. $20/each way). Check in was smooth-however the directions they gave to our rooms was useless. They gave us a map and highlighted the route to the room. What they forgot to mention is that they routed us through the tunnels. We walked outside and kept looking for "Alaska" and "Michigan" that they... More

This place should not be a hotel. I'm not sure what government contracting relationship resulted in this place being used as one, but it's ridiculous. I was shocked to see that the room charges were so high: $175/night. It feels like a soviet era bunker, the cement hallways smell of industrial cleaner, the rooms feel like punishment, and the food... More

This place is awful. It feels like sleepaway camp. I was forced to stay here for a grant review session and would never come back. The rooms feel like cramped dorm rooms. The food is served cafeteria style and the hallway leading up to the "dining room" smells like bad industrial cooking. No frills - there is barely enough shampoo.Once... More

Very "interesting" place... My "assigned" room is eerily similar to my living quarters when I was stationed in Fort Gordon, Georgia (Army). All the cement, steel, colors, and government-issued-type chairs truthfully leave me a little tense... Seems most of the other guests are either in the military or red hat ladies. I luckily arrived prior to the cafeteria (seems weird... More

This was my third stay at the National Conference Center, and I still cannot manage to navigate it without great difficulty - even WHILE holding a map.
