I was looking for a motel with Metro access into DC and this one was about $80 cheaper per night (prepaid) than comparable motels I found. This made me a little worried but it turned out just fine. I flew into Reagan Airport (DCA) and took the yellow line Metro to the Eisenhower stop. Literally about 20 minutes. The motel is about a 5-8 minute walk from the Metro. The motel is located in a sea of parking lots and freeways. The area seemd very safe, even at night. No retail in the area that I saw, but there is a Starbucks and a Ted's Montana Grille (highly recommend!!) about 2 blocks away. The motel itself is old (70s?) but they are doing the best they can with what they have. The bathrooms are very small, but everything is clean and fresh. The lobby, restaurant, and bar are cramped, but again, what can they do? Found the staff to be friendly. At checkout my "pre-paid" room bill showed a $3 balance. Really? Did the taxes change in the 2 months since I made the res. and paid for it?! Seems weird. Nonetheless, I was very satisfied overall and would definetly return and recommend.
