Wish we could give 5 stars just so the staff would know how much we appreciated their genuine and attentive care.
The owners should reassess their technology and most of all replace the HVAC, specifically because it is a health issue.
We were on 3rd (top) floor, in high 80-low 90 degree weather (not dead heat of summer YET) and our air conditioner was so antiquated we could not adjust the temp. at all, nor was it able to cool off our room. LOUD is an understatement. When leaving, another guest squeezed into their closet sized elevator (3 of us) and commented how she did not sleep due to the loud & poor cooling system. The heat and noise was unbearable for her. Alas, the cleanliness of the room, coffee (pod) maker, fridge and perfect location near NIH cannot change the fact the Heat & Cooling system is terrible. An analog TV with poor picture quality is fine for a night, we laughed at the yellow tinged programs, but if we had to stay for any length of time, we would chose elsewhere. Does HD cost that much more in the DC area?
Sorry to the staff, you were all perfect, warm, friendly, helpful and we felt you deserved another bravo so people would know, if staying in this motel, the staff is the best part of your stay.
