“Great place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

A nice, friendly staff. A comfortable and clean place to stay. It was a little difficult sometimes to get the shuttle, but it was nice to have it. The breakfast was really nice. The rates were reasonable.

What a great place to stay! The staff was very accommodating and eager to please. The room was very spacious and clean. We felt very comfortable for the 3 days we stayed there.
The FREE shuttle service they provide was a godsend. Knowing that our car was safe in their free parking lot made it easier for us to sight see without worrying about paying for parking, and maybe not having a parking space available. You can drive to most of the places we visited, but trying to find parking in downtown Washington DC would have been a nightmare. The shuttle provides rides not only to the Metro Station, which will get you close to all of the attractions, but they also will shuttle you to some of the local restaurants and fast food places. When you return to the Metro Station, a phone call to the desk was all it took to have a shuttle there to pick you up, usually within 10 or 15 minutes.
The beds were clean and comfortable, and the amenities were great with coffee maker, microwave, full size refrigerator and stove in the kitchen. There was also a nice size dining table with seating for 6. The bathroom was clean with plenty of towels.
Not only was there a free breakfast every morning with a wide assortment of breakfast items available, there was also a complimentary dinner served in the evenings, which was a pleasant surprise.
The only problem we encountered was when we tried to use the Guest Laundry facilities to wash our clothes. The detergent dispensing machine was broken, one of the six washing machines was broken, and 3 of the 6 clothes dryers were also broken. The other thing that would have been helpful to those wanting to do their laundry would be to have a Change Making machine. Having to dig through pockets and purses to find enough quarters to both wash and dry was tedious and frustrating.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely, but I would hope that they will have the laundry facilities in better repair by then.

Great hotel, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, had a great variety for breakfast, had cookies out for the evening and a coffee station all day, the room has a bunch of extra outlets which is very nice. The thing that impressed us about this hotel was ALL of the staff we encountered at this hotel would always smile, super friendly people! They were always willing to show us helpful hints on what to see and the best way to get there. They offer a shuttle service to take you to the metro and will pick up at certain times from the metro. They also have a life guard at the pool even though it's not that deep (5 feet) it's still comforting to know that someone is there if you need it. I would highly recommend this hotel if visiting the DC area!!

We loved this little hotel from the moment we arrived. Room was ready on time. The rooms were very clean. The shuttle service to the metro was excellent. Only a short trip to metro. Breakfast was busy, but good. My entire family loved the cookie bar left out each night. We did not use the pool.

My only real issue was the price was much too high - I spent 5 nights at a Homewood Suites prior to this stay, and the Homewood charge was $800 and change, and we spent 3 nights here and spent over $600, and at Homewood, we had a suite, kitchen and much better accommodations for less money, and this hotel didn't even have a guest laundry

I have stayed in this hotel twice, both because I was in town for work. I used to live not too far away from this hotel when I lived in Arlington and knew the neighborhood was safe, and the prices beat those that are closer in in more touristy areas. Also free parking, a great perk for the DC area. The downside is that it is not close to a metro and is not right downtown near the tourist spots, although it appears a shuttle will take you to a metro stop. Both times I planned to drive into DC for work purposes, and if the traffic is not too horrible during rush hour, it should take less than 30 minutes to get downtown depending on where you want to go. Probably less than 30 minutes during non rush hour. Of course rush hour lasts forever in DC!

The property itself is in good shape, clean and the rooms were nice as you would expect from a Hampton. Nice bathroom and fixtures, plenty of towels.

I preferred the room that faced the main street rather than the room more toward the back of the property that faced apartments. The only reason for this is because on the night I was in that room (a Thursday), at about 5 am Friday morning the trash truck came and the beeps from the truck from backing up were incredibly piercing. And seemed to last forever - how much trash could there be?? Absolutely no need for an alarm after that!

Room Tip: Face the main street. Try and avoid rooms near the dumpsters.

We enjoyed our 3-day stay. Hampton Inns are our hotel of choice and this one did not disappoint. Having free parking saves a lot of money as does the free breakfast each morning. The room was clean and the location was very convenient.
