“Awful experience.......”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2008

Booked 5 rooms for a business trip. Hotel looked nothing like it did on the website. 4 of the 5 rooms had no heat (we were there in February). One of the rooms had a broken lock and anyone could walk in. When I went to the manager the next day, she was nasty, rude and lied to my face. One of the parties that traveled with us called to complain about the broken lock and she said she never spoke with them. Only way I could get out of staying there the next few nights was to complain the hotel looked nothing like the website. WENT TO COMFORT INN and had a much better experience.

IF YOU ARE A WOMAN TRAVELING PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE THE LOCK IN THE ROOM THAT YOU THROW ON ONCE YOU ARE INSIDE FOR EXTRA SECURITY. When I mentioned this, the manager claim that no hotels were using this method of security anymore. If the deadbolt is broken, how do you keep safe???????????????????

This is very close to Mt. Vernon. They have lots of rooms and a breakfast included. There were no rooms on the first floor and no elevator. Not a problem. Shakti was happy to carry our bags upstairs. If you want to spend a day at Mt. Vernon, this is a great place to stay.

This place is a nightmare. The facility looks nothing like the photo on the Trip Adviser screen. Its one of those seedy old run down "no tell motel's" that someone has bought on the cheap. Slapped a coat of paint on it and put up a new sign. The lobby slash dinning area was (give or take) about 20 feet square. We were scheduled to stay three nights; we left after one, and cancelled the second and third night. The rooms were drab, and travel worn. The sheets were so thin you could hold them up to the window and watch traffic go by. The bathroom was shabby, stained, broken tile, and moldy.

This hotel is just okay. The positives: price was reasonable considering that it is in the DC area, the staff was friendly and helpful, the pool was well maintained, they provided a a decent breakfast - cereal, waffles, fruit, juice etc - in the morning, and the room had most of the amenities that we look for while travelling (iron, ironing board, hair dryer, etc.). The negatives: the room smelled like a stale hotel room, the room was worn, the air conditioner barely cooled off the room, beds were not very comfortable, every door and molding and fixture didn't fit the way that they were supposed to, and the paint had been slopped on and was mostly still there. While this hotel was a little less expensive than others in the area, I don't think that it was worth it.
