“Old hotel, Looks abandoned, Scary Feeling”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The front desk staff is not very helpfull and not friendly at all, the cleaning staff and the shuttle drivers are all the contrary very very helpfull and friendly.
Hotel looks abandoned, we arrived at 7 pm and is was lonely i was scared, walking to our room there were rooms with the door opened with ligths out, and other opened with lights on, we got the feeling that is was a scary movie and we were going to get grab from one of those rooms. My wife never stayed alone in the room.
The room is ok, was clean, the bathroom was clean, furniture is old, but at least it was clean.
Breakfast is ok, not a lot of variety, only ok.
Shuttle service is every 60 min, they drop you off at Rosslyn Station and pick you up there until 8pm, they could have the service until 11 or 12 at least. when you did not catch up the shuttle could take a cab is only 6 dollars.

There is nothing close to this hotel, for eating or drinking, take outs and deliverys were very good, the front desk gave us some menus and we ordered.

The Open Tour Bus, goes to the hotel, every day at 9am and picks up guest, you can pay the ticket online, at the bus or at the front desk.

Overall, the price you pay is what you get, we were so dissapointend of this hotel and its front desk staff, until we meet the service staff, cleaning staff,drivers, those did our stay pleasant and good.

Wifi works all around the hotel is good.

Beside all that i will not stay at this hotel again.

The service was horrible. Stayed in a room and literally got electrocuted when trying to plug in my I Phone charger. Had a burn mark on my hand and all day did was take 50% off of the day of the electrocution. They did not even check the plug after I showed them pictures. The re-rented the room a day or so afterward. I do NOT recommend staying here unless you have absolutely no choice. This place was horrible and they don't care about there guests. Found a pair of used underwear in the drawer. Light switch was broken also.

I was not glad to sleep one night in this real motel. Its wet linen, old and strongly smelling furniture and dirty shower didn't provide us with comfort and rest after the flight.
Nevertheless we reached our main destinations - our willings to look at Washington D.C. sights.
I will never visit this hotel again.

This hotel is straight out of the 60s. Only "modern" item was cable TV. If you want to see the 60s decor, stay here. Staff was nice. Shuttle to the metro from 8 till 8.
