We were looking for a room close to the metro to access the Mall in DC. This BW was a very good choice. While only a copula miles from the Rockville station, the second day we opted for the White Flint station because of the large parking garage, still only about 20 min away even in atrocious traffic. The hotel was slightly dated. Small details like a cracked elevator button slightly worn carpet repaired wallpaper etc gave clues that the hotel wasn’t new. That said the room was clean and the bathroom had been redone recently. New fixtures tile and countertop made the room an exceptional value. Don’t know about you but for us a very clean new bathroom makes for a lot nicer stay. My only complaint was a noisy air handling system that did not bother my wife but after 6 hours of REM made the last 1 or two hours of my sleep a bit unrestful. That is the reason for the 3 star sleep rating. The bed was clean and comfortable.The Best Western has a restaurant that serves what I call bar food. Pizza, wings, salad, etc. Ok for a quick meal ( the pizza and salad we had were very good) but not fine dining. There is also a bar. It was nice after a day of walking DC to not have to leave the hotel for food and drink. The breakfast was also very good. Eggs, home fries, cereal, bagels, yogurt, juice, etc. More than enough to get you going. The man who prepared the food and also waited and bussed was proud of his food and rightly so. He did a good job. Staff were friendly and helpful. For about 93 bucks a night we couldn’t find another like it. Bargain. We would stay again
Since the hotel is located in a suburban area and there are no spectacular views any room will do

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I’m glad you found our location convenient for your visit to the Washington, DC area. I agree that the White flint parking is larger than the Rockville metro stop. Next time you may want to consider our complimentary shuttle to the metro that leaves every hour and as you can see from other posts here our guest find it very handle. We listen to a guest feedback and take them very seriously. Our regular guests ask for a dining (and drinking) option right at the hotel, so we added a casual dining option – Callaway’s. Rockville also has many dining, shopping and entertainment options – all just a few minutes away via our complimentarily shuttle.
