“Awful!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2005

We stayed in this motel for 7 nights over the Fourth of July. The front desk staff was VERY unhelpful. There were 3 of us in 1 room. Every night we would have to ask for more towels. Half the time they told us they were out of them. The elevators were SLOW. There were 2 elevators and most of the time only 1 worked. We found out about 4 days into our stay that someone had been stuck for over an hour in one of them. Needless to say, we avoided that one after that! The only stairs available to go down did not even open into the motel. They were emergency exit stairs that opened to the outside. And they did not lock. That made us feel really safe as our room was in the corner right next to them. They said they had a continental breakfast. Well, they did, only you had to wait at IHOP until the 15 people in line ahead of you were seated. Some mornings breakfast took over an hour. Too long when you want to get out and see stuff. The walls were VERY thin. We felt like we couldn't even talk after 10:00- we would have kept people up! All in all, we got what we paid for. Our room was only $85 a night, and for DC that isn't much. If you just want somewhere cheap to stay for a night or two, go for it. But the next time I go to DC, I will definitely not be staying here!

We rented multiple rooms while attending a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery. We discovered two of the rooms were infested with bed bugs, when we lifted the mattress to determine the origination of the bugs we were disgusted to see hundreds of bugs scrambling under the light. The hotel staff appeared unconcerned and the Manager did not show up to meet with us as he had agreed to. Stay far away from this filthy hotel.

I would not recommend this hotel. It is not very clean and the pool hours are not even worth the attempt to swim. The room was musty. The staff was not very receptive to my concerns.

I have to disagree with the prior review of this property. First of all, I found it a great bargain at $82/night when we stayed there for three nights in April of this year. Our room was perfectly clean on the 6th floor, and we had no problem with the ice machine.

Our breakfast at IHOP was fine, its a busy place, but I found service to be what I would expect.

The only negative thing I would say about our experience there is that alot of people wanted to use the complimentary shuttle van to get to the Metro station. Might be a good idea to upgrade to a bus or get two vans.

I would definitely stay at this property again!

This hotel is very old and run down. The hallways smelled so bad you had to hold your breath when exiting the elevator. The room was not very clean. It had a small table for eating which was sticky as if someone had spilled a can of soda on it and didn't wipe it up. The drawers also looked as if something was recently spilled in them and we were afraid to put our clothes in them for fear of damage. The ice machine on our floor did not work either and the shower did not look as if it had been cleaned. On the upside the staff was very friendly and accomodating and the breakfast was very good (however the service at the IHOP was pretty bad). I stay at Comfort Inns frequently and used my priority points for a free stay. Even though it was free it still was not worth it. In hindsight I would have opted to stay in a cleaner hotel and paid the money for an enjoyable stay.
