I stayed at the Clarion for 5 nights. On the whole it was clean with a very friendly staff for a great value in the greater DC area. If you want to be close to the major DC sights, this is may not be the most convenient place for you. The metro is not convenient. However, if you have your own transportation and are interested in a clean and inexpensive by DC standards place to stay, this should be considered. As someone who likes to exercise, the "gym" left quite a bit to be desired (outdated and marginally functional equipment). But again, clean, friendly and *very* budget friendly.
