“worst stay ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

i arrived at 3am and they told me that they do not take cash and then i mentioned to the guy that i needed a fridge and microwave. (traveling with 2 kids and they drink milk) I went to room and there wasnt any. then the tv wasnt plugged like it had just been put in there. there was also no coffee in room. The hasp on the door was broken. In the morning the bathtub got clogged and when i went to call the front desk the phone was not working. I go to the front desk and they say that there are no more fridges and that there are lots of people in front of me waiting for a fridge and i tell her about the tub and says she will let her maintence guy no as soon as he finishes talking (he was joking around with a group of friends) 45 min later he comes and we had already fixed the tub then the hair dryer did not work. I work in a hotel and if i would treat ppl the way that i wasd treated i would be fired and the guest would be reimbured. worst expierence ever

As nice and polite as the staff was, i can not justify the $199.99 a night price tag on this hotel.
I have stayed at econo-lodge hotels that had better rooms. All the Suites are located right next to the elevator shafts, so you are hearing noises all night. I booked the room so my daughter and grandson could come visit and go swimming, but guess what? The pool is only open from 6:30pm-10:30pm.Gonna check out and try http://www.comfortinn.com/hotel-dumfries-virginia-VA355

Room Tip: If you have to stay here, stay away from the elevator shafts, and do not waste your money on the sui...

This hotel recently joined the Choice Hotel chain and is going through some upgrades. There were some minor inconveniences during these upgrades, but they were all well taken care of by a staff that is super gracious, smiling, a used my name a lot.

For the business traveler you are only one block from the Beltway and 30 minutes to DCA airport. Restaurant/bar on site and several fast food and nice restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the backside which is quieter from the Beltway traffic. Higher floors have bu...

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.

This is an older building, but well-maintained. Halls and elevator were quite nice, and my room was spotlessly clean--I had no reservations about putting my yoga mat on the carpeted floor.

My room was spacious, and furnished with a large desk and workspace. There were many outlets, well-spaced, for my laptop computer and various electronics that I wanted to recharge.

My room was quiet, and the hotel was generally quiet, possibly because it's not peak tourist season right now. Bed was comfortable. The heat and air conditioning unit in the room was a bit noisy, but completely functional.

The free WiFi had several networks, some slow at times, but no problem finding an adequate Internet connection as needed.

Bath area was spacious; there was plenty of hot water whenever I wanted it, and a powerful shower head.

The in-room coffee maker and coffee were better than average. I enjoyed the free Wall Street Journal.

Front desk and other staff were friendly and attentive.

The location is near many places of interest; free parking. I didn't find the immediate neighborhood particularly interesting; neither did it make me at all uncomfortable.

It is likely I will return.

I stayed from July 28-31 for a family reunion. There were two family reunions that weekend and one night was an event with 20 or so vendors and a DJ. With that being said there were no incidents of loud noises or disturbances.

Location - good location, close to fast food restaurants and stores. I read reviews about the area being a little “iffy” and “urban”, I agree but had no problems.

Room – for the most part it was clean however there were quite a few tiny ants in my bathroom. I heard a lot of other guests complain about ants as well.

Front Desk – very courteous and helpful

Pool – I didn’t take advantage of the pool but it looked clean and well kept (the kids loved it)

Restaurant – I only ate in restaurant on Sunday for breakfast buffet; food was good, nice selection and they had an omelet station. A couple family members ordered breakfast on Friday morning and waited over 30 minutes for their food! It seemed as if the restaurant was understaffed. I was glad I avoided that headache by driving down the street to McDonalds.

Bar – I didn’t utilize but did see plenty of people sitting there and the lounge area was nice and spacious.

Parking – ample parking but the rear of the building was not well lit.

There really isn’t much else to say, it’s just a regular hotel, no bells and whistles.
