4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It was a little hard to find, but our Garman found it just fine. The main walkways were exposed to the elements, so the concrete was chipping and gave the initial feeling of the place being unkept. However, our room was clean and in good repair, except for a dripping tub faucet. It was easily accessable to the main highways into DC and close to shopping and restaurants. The breakfast area was a good size and had many good choices. The only thing it was missing was fresh fruit of any kind. Had waffles, many cold and hot cereal choices, eggs, all kinds of toast, coffee and juice, and delicious muffins of home-made quality. Room had a large frig, coffee maker, and microwave. Lost power for 24 hours during Hurricane Sandy. It would have been good will for them to deliver a flashlight to each checked-in customer, but they didn't. It was pitch black because everything in the area was out. They didn't even have a generator for the front lobby. But hey, how many times does a hurricane hit!!! There will be inconveniences during that time. I thought only 24 hours without power was pretty good!!

The room and staff were great, and the breakfast was decent. The price was fantastic. But being on such a busy street can be a problem. It was hard to find the entrance from the street, and there were traffic sounds all night (including helicopters!).

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Had bugs (dead and alive) in my room for three of the four days of my stay, and the Front Desk staff didn't seem to care, and are not empowered to make decisions. Even asked to speak with the General Manager, and that never happened either. Breakfast attendant fills up the food without using gloves, and then eats a breakfast sandwich behind the Front Desk in plain view of guests checking out. Sanitation and customer service mean nothing to this hotel. Even called Days Inn Corporate with my compaints, and after two calls, the General Manager finally gave me one night comp, but never addressed any of the issues I complained about.
