I could not believe this place that is really a Hostel masquerading as a Hotel. The rooms I was shown were small with no vanity for clothes and limited closet space. I saw rooms with a bed, night stand lamp, desk, chair and small bath room. There is no parking, off loading baggage is difficulty. I finally was shown a...

My group of 4 adults stayed May 10 thru 13th 2017. Most of the previous reviews are accurate however we took a chance as the price was the lowest of all other hotels during this time. Upon arriving a little early around 2:30 our room was ready and no questions or concerns of early arrival. We were on the second...

This hotel is very dated. Almost gave off a creepy haunted house vibe. Clean but no frills. The decor in the room was sparse, and the room itself looked very old and hospital like. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. The staff was lackluster and unhelpful. However, price and location were good. Overall this hotel wasn't horrible but wasn't good either....

The room was very small, the tiny bed. Though the location of the hotel was good. Breakfast which costs extra $5 per person was very limited and of average quality. But price wise its cheaper than other hotels in the vicinity.

Unfortunately I could not read reviews before booking this hotel and it was the worst experience ever. The room is tiny, not clean with the most uncomfortable bed ever created by a human being. Booking.com was very wise on its non-refundable deal since the first reaction is to run from this nightmare. Words will not be sufficient to describe how...

If I can give a business 0 stars, this would be it. I reserved this hotel months ago. On the morning I planned on traveling to DC I received an email from the hotel stating that my credit card expired and that my reservation has been cancelled. I immediately called the hotel, repeatedly. FROM 9AM TO 9:45AM THE HOTEL DID...

I knew it wasn't going to be great from the reviews and the price but decided to go with it as everything else close in Washington was at least double the price. The District did a fantastic job of exceeding my expectations on how bad it could be. When I arrived there was a sign at reception saying they'd be...

Location is great. Many great restaurants and bars in the area. Nice safe neighborhood. Room was very small, maybe like 7x9. No drawers for clothes, no closet or hangers. Carpet was worn, looked dirty and the floor was uneven. The bathroom was decent and the staff nice. Linens were clean.

Arrived late evening and given room 422. Which is not on the 4th floor. But, in the basement. It is disgusting. The walls are covered in glued-up plywood (seriously), with not even the pretense of paint or wall paper. Of course, half the wall paper is off the wall-papered wall, too. the old ac unit is plugged in the wall...

I arrived Washington with my family and Paul the person at the reception told us our reservation was not valid. It was the worst experience. I made the reservation through hostelwordwide. I got email from hostelworldwide the morning that I arrived and he said it is not valid. I showed the reservation number and everything and he did not even...
