We just got home after spending three nights at the Towne Motel. As many other reviewers have said, it's nothing fancy, but the room was perfectly clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is lovely, and it's about a five-block walk to the Metro station, King Street in Old Town or the park system that runs along the Potomac. For budget travelers, the fridge and microwave are a big plus, especially with two grocery stores (Giant and Trader Joe's) within a couple of blocks. The only drawback is that if you don't want to hang out in your room, there's noplace right at the motel where you can sit outside. (The rooms open onto a balcony, but it's not a pleasant place to hang out. You can walk a couple of blocks to the plaza of the building where Trader Joe's and Starbucks are, or go a little farther to find a bench along the river.) Considering the high price of nearly all accommodations in the D.C. area, though, I'd say this is a very good choice.
