“Don't believe the comeon that it's near Union Station”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

When we complained about the name, we were told they weren't calling it that anymore, but it stayed on their website until a couple of days ago. It's probably still that way on booking.com. Not only is it 3 miles from Union Station, it's absolutely in the middle of nowhere. They offer a shuttle to Union Station but it has pretty limited hours. Aside from that, it was terribly run. In spite of having my name added to the reservation, they couldn't find the info and I had to wait around 2 hours until my friend's plane came in. Then I discovered that my "bed" (a foldout couch) was badly broken and practically impossible to sleep in. It took them two full days to replace with an almost equally bad rollaway. Nothing would induce me to stay there again, and I'll be suspicious of any Comfort Inns in the future.

Our one-night stay here was among my very worst hotel experiences. We booked because of it's much advertised proximity to Union Station and our understanding that we were booking a "Suite". It's in a grim, sad area nowhere near the station, and has only rooms with unseparated TV areas. The fold out, and the subsequent cot I tried, were in such bad shape that I finally slept on a mattress on the floor! We couldn't wait to escape......

Can't really complain about this place, sitting next to main road, far enough from city centre (but they provide free shuttle services to union square), clean rooms, standard breakfast, free internet etc. It is an average comforr inn quality place, with friendly staff. The only thing that strikes me is that they charge for parkings. The place is so far from everything, and yet they charge for parking, so be aware of this when you come staying here.

Room Tip: stay on the side that is not facing the road

The staff was very friendly. The room was was nice and clean. The breakfast more than adequate. But there are two problems. 1. Too far from a Metro station to walk ( they do provide a shuttle). 2. Hotel sits directly next to an Amtrac line. Wow! Talk about noise!!! If you get a room on the street side you may be ok. Otherwise forget it

A good base for a sightseeing trip to the capital. It was comfortable and clean. The transfer between the station and the hotel was efficient. We had a good nights sleep and a good breakfast. I would use it again.
There were people there moaning, but they appeared to want 4 star quality and yet pay 2 star prices.

We had a great stay at this motel!! Dennis at the desk greeted us on our arrival and was very helpful during our stay. Nicco,1 of our drivers very prompt and friendly. I read the review about the bugs. NO BUGS and NO NOISE! Rooms very clean!! The beds in room 307 VERY comforable! The breakfast very good and "Blanca" kept everything stocked. She works very hard, think about giving her a tip as we did. It will be much appreciated! And don't forget the people that clean your room or drive your free shuttle bus. All worked very hard for our benifit. We thank you for a Great experience!!We would stay again. Very good value. Wouldn't take a walk after dark, so we ate before returning to the room in the evening.
