The hotel was clean. I have no complaints about that at all! It suited my purpose, and the price was right. However when I checked in the first words I was greeted with were 'no free wifi and no free breakfast'. I was actually aware of those facts but it just struck me as wrong to have those negatives jammed at me immediately upon my arrival. They should have also added no room fridge (that one shocked me!!) and no information in the room about the fact that the hotel even had a pool and fitness center. Nothing. I asked at the desk to find them and to find the hours as they were not posted.
As I stated the room was spotless. There were some items that needed repaired...the sliding shower door was off the track and a knob on the bathroom was laying on the bathroom shelf when I checked in.
Parking was TIGHT! I came back from dinner and took the last spot! Meanwhile they had the whole back lot mostly empty and cordoned off with only certain vehicles allowed in. They advertise long term parking for people flying in and out of Dulles. I assume that's what that was for. In my estimation it may be better to make sure you have parking for your nightly guests before you over extend your capabilities.
All in all the price was right and I had no major complaints. Next time however I will probably spend the extra ten dollars and go somewhere else where I have more of those little things that make the stay easier.
