“Clean and well priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Clean rooms, close to DC and good price for the area. I was here for one night only, but then I had to come back to DC area and I booked it again for two more nights. I really recommend this hotel, even on vacation since you don't want to spend time at the hotel.

My wife and I stay here when we come to DC. The rooms are very good and super close to a Metro stop! Being pet friendly is awesome! Sarah is very helpful at the front desk. I will continue to stay here especially for the value and location.

Stayed here overnight on a trip back from SC, travelling with our dog. Room was clean and appeared to be recently refinished. Red Roof's pets-stay-free policy is great, and saves us money when compared to other chains. Would absolutely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Pet friendly. Please, people, if you have a dog, make it easier for the rest of us; pick up after yo...

Courteous front desk staff! Rooms beautifully redecorated--I especially love those floors (no more odor-retaining carpet). Very comfortable and well appointed. A real (full size) coffee maker would be an excellent touch [existing coffee maker is too small]. Pet friendly is a plus (hard to find in DC area, and they do NOT charge a pet deposit!) Nice exercise area for pets in back of hotel. I have traveled a LOT around the country and you will not find a better accommodation for the price---particularly in the DC area! I highly recommend this hotel. Clean, comfortable, and a very courteous staff. I have stayed here twice, and have chosen it as MY place to stay when I am in the DC area. Thank you for your nice hospitality.

Room Tip: Hotel is very close (blocks) from Huntington Station [DC metro system] from which you can reach near...

I have stayed (with my two dogs) in Red Roof Inns all across the country and this one ranks as the very best. Beautiful new rooms with hard flooring (to avoid that "ick, I don't want to touch the carpet with my bare feet" feeling). Clean, attractive, everything worked AND...this place is smoke free which eliminates the rotten smoky smell that you just can't get out of the fabrics in rooms smokers stay in. Great location just off 95. Very close to downtown DC from local metro stop. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. This place is a real winner!

Pay a little more and get a real hotel room. For a hotel that had been recently updated, this room had a musty or moldy odor which followed us home in our suitcases. My C-PAP machine had the same stink until I washed all of the washable parts. Not even a coffee-pot in the room. The large window that overlooked the parking lot was filthy. We knew going in that this was a no-frills stay, but were totally unprepared for the extent of the deprivation of simple accommodations.
