“Park and fly is a good deal, otherwise forgettable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We booked this hotel as part of a stay/park package. In my mind this was the only reason for picking this particular facility. The combination of the room and the parking was quite reasonable and in total I paid less for the room/parking than I would have paid for daily parking at Reagan National. The shuttle bus took us to the airport early in the morning without problem. Prior to that we had breakfast which was adequate at the most. This was included however. On the way back I did see several other shuttles from other hotels twice before we finally had a ride from our shuttle. Remember to call when you get in to make sure they send a shuttle for you as this will significantly cut down your wait time. The hotel itself is a little run down though it was clean. There were no internal hallways as every room faced the parking lot. I don’t like this particular layout. Our room faced a fairly dark street. We had no problems however and when we got back after 11 days our car was still there.

I arrived at Reagan Airport just after 10.00pm on Tuesday 21 January and waited for the hotel shuttle which didn't arrive. After 45 minutes I called the hotel to be told their shuttle doesn't run after 10.00pm.

It was a very cold night, -10 with snow and few cabs were running and the line for cabs was long and I waited almost 2 hours for one. Finally got to the hotel at 1.00am and needed to trudge 50 meters over the snow and ice from the reception to my room which was in another building.

The heater in the room did not work and there was only one blanket on the bed. A search of the room failed to locate a spare blanket. Tried to call reception but the phone didn't work. I had been traveling for 30 hours and just could not be bothered trekking back to the office so I slept in my clothes after taking a hot shower to warm up - at least the water was hot!

The breakfast the following morning was good but other than that there was nothing to recommend.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before you check in if possible

We arrived on a clear day after a snow and the parking lot was still snow covered and treacherous. There are no real sidewalks that lead from the desk to the outdoor rooms (yes, a motel rather than a hotel) and it was quite a challenge moving from place to place. The room was freezing cold, with NO heat on when we arrived, and we did have a reservation. We wore our coats for an hour while the room came to a tolerable temperature. The best thing I can say is that the mattress was fairly good, but the bathroom and sink areas, and room in general, were in desperate need of renovation. Also, don't bother with the free breakfast--not worth the calories.

This hotel is close to Reagan Airport. Restaurants are near by, one mile or so. The shuttle service is great. A warm bed and good breakfast each time. Just off 395 highway. Just right for business or pleasure.

We spent the weekend in D.C. for Veteran's Day then wanted to visit Arlington and the Air Force Memorial. After the high price to stay in D.C. we opted for something a bit more affordable and this hotel was good for that. The room was clean but outdated, but at this price that is to be expected. The staff was very friendly however and the breakfast was great, the children enjoyed it. I would recommend this hotel however if you are just looking for a clean affordable place to stay for a night or two.

I stayed here because it was the cheapest hotel closest to downtown DC.

Actually, it's not a hotel - it's a motel. In my opinion, this is a deceptive practice that needs to be corrected.

Negative: The rooms are in desperate need of renovation and repair. Mine had a funky smell.

Positive: The staff couldn't be nicer.

I recently stayed here and loved the fact that it is so close to the city. The rooms do need a bit of renovation, however for the price, it definitely is worth it and I would stay here again. The staff, especially Carlos really do go out of their way to make your stay more comfortable.
