“The Desk Clerk was Awesome!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Sarah was very very informative & Knowledgeable of the area and gave excellent advice. Polite and Professional as well. I wished all Hotels had someone like her in them, traveling is tiring at times and people like Sarah who show they really do "care" about you makes all the difference.

I experienced the roof under bad circumstances; canceled connecting flight, hot night, grumpy me. The room hadn't been cleaned, which was kind of creepy (really, former guest, think about your snack food choices), but Isaac at the desk did everything he could to fix the situation. The next morning, Sarah was pleasant and helpful. This is a nice enough place, nicer than you might expect on first sight, but the staff makes the real difference. Well done, Roofers.

We needed a place to stay while visiting Washington, D.C. and booked this room. The "wood" flooring drew us to this hotel in addition to the price. On check-in we met Ms. Mills and she was/is Awesome! Ms. Mills assisted with our accommodation as we needed a room with a microwave/refrigeration; very helpful, We had room #223 facing the street and it was actually not noisy from the second floor. We had a great nights' sleep through our stay. Ms. Mills gave us additional advice for touring D.C. Definitely, take the metro & buy a metro card - add what you need as you go! The Huntington-metro parking garage was may be 6 long blocks away/ &4.95 for the day for parking.
Back to the room...Our family appreciated the cleanliness of the double-bedded room; you could smell the bleach which cleared momentarily. The A/C ran cold and the air circulation was comfortable. The sink/bathroom area was a great separation for our family to share. Note: The room towels are set for two, we have a family of four and picked up additional towels as needed. :)

This hotel/room was a great find for a place to rest! We will definitely stay here, again, if we are in the area.

Thank you, Ms. Mills (Guess Service Desk); and Connie A. and the remainder of the housekeeping staff (for the extra towels)!

Room Tip: The rooms in the back (not facing the street) have limited Wi-Fi strength. The middle rooms are clo...

We stayed at this property as chaperones to a small high school group. The rooms were very clean, and despite facing the roadway, I was very pleasantly surprised at how quiet the rooms were at night. We would have liked to have somewhere with a continental breakfast, but there were microwaves and fridges in the rooms, which made it easy to pick up something to have a light breakfast in our rooms, so we were happy. It is definitely someplace we would stay again.

I have stayed at this property in the past and I must say I love the friendliness of the staff and the newly renovated rooms. It's the consistency that keeps me coming back. The service is always superb and the rooms are always nice and clean. Highly recommend.

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay while touring all the sites around Washington DC. We couldn't beat the price, for staying 4 nights. It took us about 20 minutes to get parked by the National Mall in DC. It was not bad at all. If you stay there on a Saturday and Sunday, do not take any shuttles to the Mall. Parking is free along the streets. If you go early enough in the morning (we went about an hour before things opened), we found parking right close to everything on the street. No walking far to anything. As far as the hotel, the beds were okay, nothing great. The colors and room surrounds were decent. It was probably a 2 out of 5 rating. On the 3rd night we had to request a new room, as someone was smoking in another room and it fumigated our bathroom. We couldn't even go back in. I am highly allergic to cigarette smoke, plus 2 of us having asthma, it was terrible for us. The hotel was wonderful about accommodating us a new room close to where we were. Would we stay here again? Probably. especially when DC is expensive. This hotel was a bargain price.

Room Tip: If staying over a weekend, no reason to take a shuttle to the National Mall. You can drive, in about...

Thank you for letting me know that my team did an awesome job making your stay a pleasant one. Having non-smoking rooms, in a smoking environment is a struggle. We do try to accommodate all of our guests. Please think of us on your next visit to the area.
