“Cute B&B just outside the center of DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Just got back from my first visit to DC and had a wonderful stay! The Brookland Inn is a cute B&B just outside of the main city area. The metro stop is only about a block away, which was great for our purposes. My friend and I stayed in a one bedroom suite and were very pleasantly surprised with the room - or apartment as it seemed. The kitchen was well stocked with muffins (chocolate chip were delicious!), yogurt, oatmeal, cereal etc. This was great for the mornings! It was very nice to have a living room area separate from the bedroom. Bathroom has some water marks on the ceiling, but didn't really effect our stay. We were there for 3 nights and it felt more like home than a hotel. We came in later at night and there was a key waiting for us on our arrival. Check out was very simple as well, just signed some paperwork and left the key in the room. Neighborhood looked ok. As a girl alone, might be questionable, but I was staying with a friend so turned out fine. Overall, great experience and I would stay here again!

I would recommend the Brookland Inn to anyone that is new to the area. Very comfortable place to stay.

begins our review of the Brookland Inn. We stay here while visiting our niece who lives in the leafy Brookland neighborhood of DC. If you need a big lobby welcome, constant staff attention, a big view of the White House from the window, and an elevator and/or porter for your luggage, go somewhere else. If you want a clean, spacious place to spread out, precious privacy as you come and go, a VERY comfortable bed (in the 3rd floor 2 bedroom unit), adequate air conditioning, ample toiletries and towels, and the biggest little continental breakfast -- then come to the Brookland. The reservation is a breeze, the check-in is a little quirky, and wireless internet service is not a problem. Breakfast is apple/orange juice, coffee, teas, hot chocolate, sodas, oatmeals, cereal, milk, fruits, and reliable jumbo Costco muffins for all in your party. Your car is safe in the lot on the side of the building or if you are lucky enough to find a spot on the street out front. The Metro is nearby as is the National Shrine of Immaculate Conception. We walked to the church on 12th Street for a baptism on Sunday morning by the Yes Market, CVS, and the BCafe downstairs, which we hear has good food. This is an older apartment type building turned into a B and B with no sign out front. If you want a reasonable, roomy hideaway removed the bustle of downtown, where you can come and go like a native, and are a reasonably self-sufficient traveler/guest, then the Brookland is definitely for you.

My stay at the Brookland Inn in DC was a great experience very friendly staff, clean rooms and a nice vegan cafe to suite your taste buds. Extremely comfortable mattress and bedding accesories were clean and relaxing...came into town for buisiness although my stay was just a few days "Brookland Inn" spoiled me with their service.

Only a short train ride into the centre of DC was great as well as the free parking. The one bedroom apt was clean and comfortable and 2 adults and 1 child were able to spread all their luggage around. Breakfast suited us - light but perfectly fine. Wasn't much around the area so ate downtown before coming back - it's not a full kitchen so it's really only take-out. Overall a pleasant stay in DC.

We stayed at the Brookline Inn for four nights. On first glance the Inn seems spacious and nice, and has more of an apartment feel rather than a hotel, which we discovered has more drawbacks than benefits. Initially the window A/C unit was not properly installed (there was a large gap between the unit and the window allowing air & bugs to come into the room) when we went downstairs a very nice man helped us by covering the opening with tape. That solved the bug and hot air problem but then the A/C unit was super loud, likely due to poor installation. On the third night, around 1 am, the fire detector started beeping intermittently. Since there is no receptionist we had to wait until the morning to e-mail someone to have it fixed. We received a timely and nice response stating the problem would be taken care off. However when we arrived that evening the fire detector was, now, beeping constantly. Luckily the front door had a number listed to call if one experienced problems and a gentleman arrived to fix the detector within 30 minutes. However he fixed it by simply taking the batteries out, which we could have done ourselves but did not want to cause a fire hazard. When we voiced our displeasure with our stay and asked for a one night refund (remember we stayed four nights total), we were offered a complimentary stay for next time. Needless to say that offer is nice but worthless for us as we will not chance, even a complimentary, stay at this inn. Good luck to anyone who chooses to stay there in the future.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room, small apartment really, was beautifully and elegantly decorated, the kitchen well-appointed and refrigerator stocked with fresh fruit and other breakfast and snack items. The staff were efficient and responsive. The neighborhood does not have much around, but felt safe and the proximity to Catholic University was terrific. Parking was easy and, for DC, a real perk. We look forward to returning to the Brookland Inn.
