“A Total Dump”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

This had to be the nastiest place I ever stayed. The chair had some kind of stains on it, it was totally filthy something that should of been thrown in the dumpster, The one bed had urine stains all through the sheets and comforter. Totally filthy. Had the do not disturb card in the door went in the room the maid was in there with the door shut doing who knows what, probably rooting through our belongings. Avoid this place at all cost, you would be better off sleeping in your car.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2011

We booked a room here for 2 nights this week because we were having work done on our place and couldn't stay there. The room was so disgusting we turned around and left before we even unpacked. The place is dingy and musty, the smoke alarm was hanging by wires from the ceiling, the easy chair in the room was stained and greasy. The furniture was visibly dirty. We lifted the sheets to check for bedbugs and there was a HUGE yellow stain on the mattress. The carpet was ratty and dirty looking. This place is dodgy and gross - don't bother trying to stay here! It is not worth it!! I do have to give the front desk credit, they allowed us to check back out and did not charge us for the room even though we had made a "non-refundable" reservation.

We booked two rooms in this hotel as we were travelling with extended family and our young daughter at the time. The walls in rooms were stained with some kind of brown substance, the ceilings were cracked and brown, the room smelled of urine, which came from the air conditioning unit. Needless to say, we got out of there asap. We had to loose some cash due to hotel policy, but I could not live with myself if I had my family stay there. When you get to this hotel, stand in front of it, look across the street at the Ramada that is there, and run to it do not walk as you may get sucked into the hell of Super 8.

We stayed three nights at this hotel in College Park while spending the Independence Day holiday in Washington D.C. No frills hotel... just a spot to rest, sleep, and that's about it.

The hotel is located off of Baltimore Avenue, which was always busy with traffic, so it was a little noisy in the room with the window open. A/C worked just fine. Bed was comfortable with nice pillows. Lots of tv channels to chose from. The bathroom was a bit warn as well as the carpet in our room. The shower drained very slowly. We skipped the available (yet very small) breakfast and went to Dunkin Donuts up the road every morning. The hotel overall could use a makeover. The hotel's location was convenient as we could just hop onto the interstate and drive a few miles to the Greenbelt Metro station parking lot and park free (on weekends) to ride the Metro into D.C.

I'd recommend this hotel if you aren't staying long and just need a place to sleep. If you want a 4-star hotel, find somewhere else.

I booked 4 rooms in advance for a family reunion. After driving 7 hours on the road the last thing we expected was to be greated by rude customer service. We noticed the housekeeper was not dressed professionally. I requested all rooms to be non-smoking, and once we entered it wreacked of cigarettes. The sheets were stained and had burn marks, I had to request new ones. While we stayed for the 2 nights housekeeping didnt change our sheets nor replace the used towels. The hotel indicated complimentary breakfast and all they had were boxes of cereal, milk and distasteful coffee. I was charged on the invoice $184 per room but when we checked our credit card statement they over charged us $200.11. per roomThis charge is being investigated! I will never stay there again, I'd rather pay the 5 star money than to stay in that dump!

Floor in Bathroom had hair all over. Sink and tub, scuffed and very worn, hard to tell if dirty of just old. hallway smelled like pet urine. Price inexpensive for area. Housekeeping staff when they took out garbage from the floors, put into the only elevator that guests use, bags leak onto the floor which not only make them smelly, but provide a slipping hazard.These bags are then dragged along the hall on the first floor. Coffee provided in room, but nothing to put in the coffee. Breakfast a joke, stale food items and at 0800 coffee had run out.

Room was not clean. Hair all over the bathroom (on floor, shower and toilet). Toilet not clean (urine stains on seat). Shampoo had been used (seal broken and half empty). Floor not clean. Towels dirty. Bath towel had food stains on it (had not been washed). Floor towel had shoe prints on it. Carpet in room had not been vacuumed. Hair on sheets. Definitely not worth $80.
