We travel to the DC area frequently to visit family, and this is our home away from home. Sure, it has warts -- the decor is dated, it can be noisy, drains can run slowly, and sometimes things don't work -- but the price and location are PHENOMENAL. We walk or take buses to all the DC sites. We love the spacious rooms and kitchen, and the beds are heavenly. We prepare our own breakfasts (the convenience store nearby sells basics), so we rarely eat at the restaurant on site. And did I mention the price? In its price range, you won't find anything this close to DC that's as good as the Virginian Suites.
