I have travelled to the DC for years. I can say that most of my stays inside the beltway have been at over priced locations with minimal customer service.
That changed in 2014 when I experience the Governor's House Inn while on my bike to take part in the "Run for the Wall" Memorial Day weekend.
The staff from start to end, owner to the room attendant showed nothing but pure good hospitality. They were not overbearing, simply friendly, seemed to honestly be glad you were there, offering up help whenever they thought you might need it.
Compared to other experiences inside the beltway I found the cost very reasonable for a clean, well maintained room. I had one issue with a shower head, called the front desk and 15 minutes later it was corrected. WiFi was a bit weak.
Because I was riding the bike I always like to be able to see it from my room. Being a one story facility I was able to do just that. Parking was spacious with a well maintained lot.
Eating facilities near by offered a wide range of options. Bentley's next door had a great breakfast.
Those traveling this is not a new facility. HOWEVER, I can tell you I found it to be a great value, comfortable and based on conversation with the owner (FYI, NEVER had an owner take the time to share their vision with me before) improvements are planned and being done all the time to better accommodate their guests.
I have been there twice and will be back again next year.
