I was working in the Washington DC area and needed a hotel. I had stayed at this hotel previously, but I did not remember anything about it. This was before I started writing revews on TripAdvisor. I needed an inexpensive room and although this one was $139 per night, it was one of the least expensive rooms I found in the area. The price had jumped significantly from my previous stay. Unfortunately, the quality of the hotel did not.
When I arrived, I immediately recognized it. It has a small entrance on Richmond Highway, which is easy to pass if you're not careful. The hotel is not walking distance to very much, so you will definitely need a car if you stay there. It is nowhere near the Metro, and the traffic to get to one of the stations is unbelievable.
The lobby was unmemorable. The hotel staff were competent, although every single one seemed disinterested in their jobs. Most nights, the evening clerk was sitting at the single computer in the business center surfing the web instead of standing behind the counter.
The room was average at best. I am a Best Western Rewards Diamond Member, so I've seen BW hotels all across the country. I'd put this one somewhere below the 50% mark as far as their hotels go. I'd probably rank it in the bottom 40-45%. It was clean, but that's about as far as I would go in complimenting it.
For $139 per night (plus tax), you should get a better hotel than this one.
