My husband and I stayed here for two nights while in town for a wedding. It's an older property and the room looked it - the bathroom fixtures were dated - but it was clean and functional, with a space to hang up clothing, a sink outside the bathroom and a decent shower. The biggest issue by far was the lack of outlets to plug in our various devices - we had to plug in our cellphones across the room! (Oh, the horrors!) The TV channels were also quirky and didn't quite match the provided list of channels, but that's also a minor issue that we run into at lots of different hotels.
The rooms do open directly to the outside (motel-style), but the area seemed safe and we never felt remotely threatened.
The breakfast, served in the main building, was very good, though it would have been quite a hike if we had walked, since our room was on the back of the property. However, we were heading out both days right after breakfast, so we just drove around the parking lot!
The hotel is far from Washington D.C., but it is fairly close to the Metro station. We drove there, since we were going into the district on a Saturday when parking is free at the station. The front desk clerk told us that there is no shuttle to the Metro station, but a bus comes by frequently and stops in front of the hotel that takes people straight to the Metro station. It's a bit of a long ride to the district, but it's comfortable.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, and we would definitely consider staying here again if we were in the area.
