“Decent budget hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Recently renovated; Spartan but agreeable accommodations. Close to I-95/495 and to Metro (Huntingdon station). Wood-like laminate floor gives this a European feel. Do
Was clean, everything worked. Would stay here again.

Of course this is one of the chain hotels, and thus there is not much to say, provided that you are familiar with these places. This one here is very typical, too, it is reasonably clean, room was quite large, furnishing in good state, what more would one need to lay the head. If you’re on the way through, you do not care that distance to DC is quite long (Red Roof Washington thus is somewhat misleading) and that there is nothing around it (there is an Italian across the street which delivers quite promptly), even Alexandria is some distance away and can only be reached by taxi or public transport (which admittedly is quite convenient). Sadly there is no breakfast, coffee only (which was very good though).

Dear Traveler, what could be better than a good nights sleep and a good cup of coffee? Breakfast, you say?. I am certain we will see you again, and I promise to bring you a muffin to go along with your coffee. Thanks much.

First time here; we stayed for 3 days. It was ok, but I was happy when it was time to leave. Floors were dirty with hair all over and bathroom looked like it had not been cleaned. Everything else looked ok but the state of the bathroom makes you wonder what else wasn’t cleaned. Rooms have been remodeled. Beds are comfortable and we had good, quiet sleep all 3 days despite the AC. AC worked very well but was positioned in such a way that the air blows on the face of the people sleeping in the bed farthest back. I was freezing and could only sleep by putting my head under covers which I don’t like to do. Pretty location set in the trees with grocery and restaurants within a few minutes driving. Good location for in and out of DC. There are restaurants and groceries nearby but you will need to drive there.

Great location everything u could want is right there in the area. No trying to find where to eat, u have walmart,target and every drug store chain u could think of is right there.

Room Tip: I prefer 2nd floor not a lot of noise at the time.

Miss Mill's that checked us in was exceptional. Housekeeping was awful. We left notes for them to leave extra towels and washcloths sever all days to only have to go to the front desk every evening. We left one for and extra pillow, nothing. Went to front desk to find out they don't have extra ones. Things we left on the night stand could not be found in the afternoon. We ask housekeeping to change a light bulb, it never was changed. They never left us a ice bucket liner. Overall housekeeping was TERRIBLE.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights over the Fourth of July weekend. The Washington D.C. area was packed. This hotel was up to the task. The check-in process was thorough yet quick. The rooms are remodeled. The room cleaners do a great job. To top it all off, Ginny is on top of everything if any issues arise. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We moved to the Red Roof after a few nights in downtown DC and we were so happy we did! Great service from Debie and others, close to Metro stop with parking. The price was much more amenable than the prices downtown and the commute was easy!
