“An ABSOLUTE DUMP”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2010

PLEASE do not stay here. I "won" this place on a Priceline bid of $38 per night for 4 nights. Including the priceline fee it worked out to about $44 per night. The first greeting for the new guest is a large, dark stain in the lobby carpet. The front desk staff is friendly and professional, but the desk that they work behind is badly scratched. The building itself has fallen into disrepair. When entering the elevator, the scratches (graffiti) on the inside of the doors gave me fair warning of what was yet to come. Walking down the long, very dark hallway to my room, it's obvious that the carpet has not been vacuumed for weeks. Small bits of trash and paper are everywhere. (Later, I spoke with the front desk staff about it and was told that they don't have the manpower to keep it clean). There's a general musty smell about the place; which is no doubt a combination of pets (allowed), smoking (pipes and cigarettes most noticeable), and general neglect. I entered my room and there was the smoke detector hanging from the ceiling by just wires. The air-conditioner sounds like someone is shaking a coffee can full of marbles. Generally, the room is Spartan, but it does have a small kitchen which might come in handy. The refrigerator sounds like a Boeing 747 on takeoff roll.

I pulled down the bedspread........ to find on the pillow........no....... not a complimentary chocolate mint, but...........A PUBIC HAIR !!

There is no daily housekeeping service. It is provided once every seven days. Therefore, fresh towels are to be picked up at the front desk and you must take your trash out to the "trash room". No fitness facility. $4.99 one-time fee for WIFI. As many of you know, there are no refunds on Priceline. Buyer Beware!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2008

This is a very good Value for money accommodation. It is a clean place. The staffs here are friendly and readily help you on some information that we needed in the nearby surrounding. The manager Anil is a friendly person and is well informed. Being a first time traveler to DC he was of great help in suggesting the transportation means and restaurants nearby. The location is convenient and about .6 miles from the Dulles shopping center. Except for the cold winter time this is a walk able distance.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2007

After a long day of multiple flight delays and cancellations, I stayed at this property out of necessity (and desperation) until I could fly out of Dulles early the next morning. The hotel decor is spartan, but the room, bathroom, and bed were very clean. Also, the hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. For meals, there is a TGI Fridays within walking distance of the hotel. The only minor negative was that there was no airport shuttle, but it is only a 15-minute taxi ride to Dulles. For what I needed, the hotel exceeded my expectations.

  • Liked — Cleanliness and friendly staff.
  • Disliked — Spartan decor.
