My wife, dog and cat spent 3 weeks here recently and the facility is typical for a Residence Inn.
A two room suite, this close to DC, for about $150 a night is a bargain. This included a nice hot or cold breakfast each day and a simple evening meal (tacos, meatball subs, burgers/dogs, etc) on Mon, Tues and Wed.
Karen, the manager, is very friendly and helpful, as is her front desk staff. It seems as if Karen tries to get to know each of her guests.
The rooms are clean, but not as clean as you'd find in a full-service Marriott. Many on the housekeeping staff seem to be just going through the motions. Table tops are dusty and there was hair and dust near one of the toilets for our entire stay. I don't think the bathroom floors were ever washed during our 3 weeks. The grounds also need a clean-up. Fast food wrappers, food delivery menus and other trash are all over the parking lot and its sidewalks.
Accessibility alert: There are rooms that are fitted to be wheelchair accessible but the entrances to the buildings, (including one marked "accessible entrance"), aren't. There are no automatic door openers. So, if you're using a wheelchair or a scooter you need to swipe a key card and then quickly back up and pull open the door yourself. I've already mentioned this to Marriott via their app.
All in all, it's a good value with good desk staff, but it could easily be kept cleaner and made more accessible.
