Can you turn off the heat?
Can you turn off the gas pilot in the gas wall water heater?
Can I have a receipt which shows the rate per day and the tax?
Whatever your request, the staff at Beck's has a simple answer: no.
Sometimes they are comical: If we turn off the gas pilot light, there will be a small amount of gas in the room giving the room a funny smell.
I can't argue with that.
But asking guests for full pre-payment at check in (with no itemization of the room rate), give me a break.
On the plus side: great location, close to historic F line street car, near Peets Coffee, etc.
Also, the rates are a bargain and free parking.
