Well, we’re back from 12 days in the northern D.C. area. A good trip, even the weather agreed. We’re 65 and retired to give you an idea on our views.
We stayed at the Silver Spring TraveLodge. DW chose it last year and I panicked when I read the reviews on TA. She had booked us and there were no cancellations allowed. I was so nervous I had checked for the web site & phone number for their corporate HQ, expecting the worse. When I checked in I told them I wanted to see the room first. I checked it out and everything appeared OK. After all, all we needed a place to sleep with a decent TV and plumbing. We weren’t planning on living there.
That’s what we got. The TV was fine. The shower was very good. There was a problem with a towel rack and the flushing handle on the toilet. We reported it and it was fixed the next day. We had a fridge, microwave and A/C heater that all worked fine. The motel cleaning staff were very efficient and friendly. There is also a Subway sandwich shop attached to the motel. We never saw any sign of ants or other bugs. We were on the first floor. Possibly the people with insect problems didn’t use the trash cans OUTSIDE of their rooms and attracted the insects.
Yes the place was grubby, needed drywall work, paint and it had probably been a long time since the carpet had been cleaned. This isn’t a Hyatt or Marriott by any means but we didn’t pay anywhere near the prices they want. We paid $72 per night + 101 tax. Oh, off-street parking. We were able to park within 10 feet of our room; great for hauling the luggage.
The Silver Spring Metro is about one mile away. Metro Parking is under construction, but a Van-Go bus service is available for free and the bus-stop is about a block from the motel. Makes for easy commuting to the DC area.
We’d stay there again.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The staff was friendly & helpful, and the room was neat and clean. The price was amazing: Less than $72 for AARP members, and that included free parking.

It's very convenient to the DC metro system so the location is excellent. Just a block off Georgia, the neighborhood was very safe. While it doesn't have a free breakfast, a 6 inch breakfast sandwich at Subway on the premises was less than $3.50 with a senior citizen discount. Coffee's available 24 hours a day.

The Wi-Fi connection was excellent, and room looked newly decorated. Unlike other reviewers, we had no problems with the shower the sink or anything else. There were also plenty of electrical outlets for our communication devices.

Room Tip: There is no fitness center on the premises; since I can't take the rating away, I rated it a thr...
