I've stayed here a couple of times now and not been disappointed. The building as a whole is older and looks out of place against the glossy office buildings along Fairfax & Wilson. But inside it's clean, remodeled, comfortable, with decent beds, tile in the bathroom & fridge/counter area (easier to keep clean), and with decent furniture. Not the dingy pit you'd expect from a hotel of this vintage. The continental breakfast is nothing special (mini bagels, box donuts, fruit), and there's no iron or hair dryer. But the cost is so much less compared to anything decent nearby, you could buy better-than-hotel appliances at the mall down the street anyway.
