On a recent trip to Washington D.C., I chose to stay in Rockville primarily to avoid two things: ridiculously overpriced hotels close to the center of the District, and the prohibitive cost of parking. There are, however, some trade-offs.
This hotel is both large and clean, but something feels very dated from the moment you walk in. Yes, it is a Best Western "Plus," yet it doesn't exude a contemporary atmosphere at all, like a renovated Hampton Inn or Courtyard Marriott. The same feeling carries through to the guestrooms, which are equipped with large, modern TVs, but are kind of drab in color, materials, and lighting. The bathroom was also nothing to write home about.
Service was above average; check-in took just three minutes, as did check-out. On a good day, the drive to Washington is about 25 minutes, but if you're heading out in rush hour, it could take as long as an hour. If convenience is key, look for deals and stay in the District. But if you need a quiet room and are coming with a car, this hotel isn't a bad choice.
