The hotel room was clean. The parking lot and communal areas were also clean. The picture shown is very similar to what our room looked like. We had King sized bed, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and full bath. There was a flat screen tv which worked fine. Our room was quiet and our bed was comfortable. Our room was facing the hi-way but this didn't keep us awake. Wi-Fi is FREE with the room. It worked well enough that I was able to watch videos on my IPad. There were only a few negatives. Housekeeping during your stay consists of leaving clean towels on your bed every day. Apparently cleaning the sink, tub and making the bed is your own responsibility. If you do not have a car the walk from the Metro is about a mile. Not a problem except you have to cross Richmond Highway which is very busy. Also there is no sidewalk on the side the hotel is located on. It is also a hike to the nearest restaurants. There are always cabs at the Metro stop. In all fairness there is ample free parking. If you want just a basic room without paying for amenities you do not use this may be the place for you.
