“Fantastic Find with Great Location Best Budget Hotel in DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2004

I travel to the Washington area on business virtually every week arriving on Monday and leaving on Friday. Due to a limited travel budget I generally stay at budget chains such as Motel 6 and Days Inn, these hotels have proven to be run down and usually in challenging neighborhoods. When I arrived to check in at the Sleep Inn Shady Grove for my first stay back in June I was stunned. The staff was friendly and professional, the rooms clean, comfortable, modern and well appointed. I enjoyed the continental breakfast they provided. Each room has a small refridgerator and there is a microwave in the dining area. This was very convenient for preparing in room meals ( a nice thing when you spend four nights a week in a hotel. The biggest challenge I faced was that I could not get a decent connection to the internet through dialup and did not want to pay for the hotel's wireless service. Also I would have liked a better channel selection on the cable TV, this was surprising as the Motel 6 I had previously been using had full basic cable and HBO. I will point out that these are minor problems given the value of the hotel which was as nice as some mid-scale downtown hotels. I regret that the summer is over and I won't be able to continue staying at the hotel as it is now priced beyond my travel budget. If I was able to stay at the same rate I've been getting through the summer I would continue to use the property.

For $45/night (at DCRooms.com), I wasn't expecting much; but what a surprise! Check-in was very easy (William at the front desk was really helpful), and there were Crape Myrtles in bloom everywhere. The room was pleasant (complete with refrigerator and iron/ironing board). The outdoor pool was nice, too (but doesn't open 'til noon). Breakfast was OK, unless you're on a low-carb diet. Access from I-270 (Shady Grove exit) was only a minute away, but the hotel is set back in a quiet court and I couldn't hear the traffic from my room. I'd go back, even for their regular low rates.

This was a great hotel. Mostly because at DC Rooms.com I got a great rate! For 45.00 a night during peak season. We stayed 5 nights and it only cost us 252.oo with tax! O.k., the room only had a shower, no tub, BUT... the room was very clean, fairly large, and had a refrigerator (but nothing special) they also have an outdoor pool. Oh, yea, they have a pretty decent continental breakfast too. The hotel staff was very polite, professional, and accomidating. The hotel is right next to the Shadey Grove Metro station and is only a 20 minuet Metro ride into DC and is in a very nice suberb. There are shops and lots of resturants nearby, and a movie theater. Overall it was a great value for a simple traveler.
