“Nice stay close to 395”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is a decent homewood suites. Well situated close to the 395 onramp. The internet connection is strong. The breakfast area is quite large. Oddly laid out but it gets the job done (they also overcook their hash! curses!).

The rooms are nice, there's a hint of wear and tear on the property, but nothing offensive.

WARNING: This hotel is not easily metro accessible. They run a shuttle between here and the nearby hampton inn to the king's street metro station every 30 minutes. The nighttime service ends at 8pm on the weekdays. That's fine for commuting from work but a real hassle if you want to do anything. There are some cool restaurants in the area, but you need a car. You're not going to get much better then the local TGI Friday's for nightlife. Spend that time else where.

If you drove to DC to visit and don't mind driving into the district it's fine. But if you want a metro accessible stay look elsewhere.

Really appreciate the service I got there. Early checkins with breakfast and all the possible help provided in arranging the Washington trip. This is the hotel I would like to recommend if you are planning for Washington trip as there is no parking charges and provided the shuttle facility to the nearest metro station and good breakfast and evening reception with excellent sleep quality.

Most hotels offer breakfast but the Homewood Suites also offers free dinner Mon-Thu which is great when you are travelling and tired. This hotel is also within walking distance to shopping centers, grocery stores and restaurants. The staff are very nice and courteous, there is an adequate exercise room and a hot tub.

Room Tip: Some of the suites come with a gas fireplace. They have corner rooms which are very quiet and separ...

I love Homewood Suites in general due to the kitchen facilities, separate bedrooms and continental breakfast but this property went above and beyond! The Manager actually did our grocery shopping for us and delivered it to our room! Then he refused a tip! The Pantry store has a decent selection of prepared food and sundry items priced more reasonably than I expected. The shuttle to the Metro ran every half hour so being a bit out of the way was not an issue at all. Front desk staff answered our never ending barrage of questions about the Washington area with great info and some super suggestions. I wish there had been a free shuttle from the Ronald Reagan Airport but the cab ride was only $20 so it wasn't a big deal. Typical awesome breakfasts and pretty good food at the evening Manager's Reception made our restaurant expenses next to nothing! They even left candy for the kids the last night of our 5 night stay. They have a really nice looking outdoor pool area that is open in the warmer months-we brought the snow with us from New Brunswick apparently since it snowed while we were there! Good job Guys!

The size of the rooms for the money is a great value in this quite, well-maintained establishment conveniently located among many amenities. Breakfast is a popular event but seating is adequate and the food plenty. The availability of a mini-store is very convenient for late night selections and the parking lot is sufficiently large and well-lighted so locating a convenient space is never a problem. Will definitely return - room availability never seemed a problem.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor were very quiet - well-insulated from any auto traffic in the parking lot o...

I would reconsider before I stay here as the hotel does not seem to enforce its no smoking policy and that includes the smoking of marijuana. On a recent extended stay, several I could smell it wafting into the hallways and even one time in the main lobby when I was at dinner. I stay at a family oriented hotel for a reason and I expect a family friendly environment.

Breakfast, a pool table, free internet, super friendly and helpful staff, and a fireplace in the lobby - what more could you ask for? We were able to sleep six comfortably and cut costs by using the kitchen. Monday evening we even ate supper there on the house, and it was quite good, with enough fresh foods and cooked veg to satisfy the vegetarians in our group. The place is very well kept up; we never felt that hotel "icky" feeling. I will try to find a Homewood to stay in wherever I travel.
