Old motel, but very very clean, quiet and comfortable. Free internet (but may not be accessable from all rooms), continental breakfast (but no bananas or oranges which are advertised). A short walk to the subway, which is a 15-minute ride to downtown Washington. The television is an old staticy cathode-ray tube with 99 cable channels (no premium). There's a hair dryer and clothes iron with board in the room, but no clock or radio. Ice is on the first floor near the front desk. Cheap motel in an upscale neighborhood, surrounded by high-rise luxury apartment and office buildings. There's a Marriott just a block away. My travel expenses were being reimbursed, so I could as easily have stayed at a $300 per night downtown DC hotel. I enjoyed this motel far better than some $300 downtown hotels I've stayed at. I would stay here again.
