It is indeed an old building but everything is clean. The staff are really helpful and kind. It is not a luxury hotel but a nice and comfortable place to stay. Very well connected with buses and metro, and the surroundings are nice and safe. Nearby The U street area. I recommend it!

As said in other reviews, the Windsor Inn is a older building and certainly has some wear and tear, some old water damage, and some work could be done to make it perfect. However, my room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was updated. The furnishings have an antique feel to them. I like the decor.. It fits the age... More

Many stairs! Hotel is old and has seen better days. Had to lug suitcases up many stairs, outside and in. I bolted and went to another place due to a housekeeping issue. (Yikes) Neighborhood is good. Bus transportation. Restaurants.

Ugh. I was rebooked here from their sister property. Walking from the metro the air was saturated with weed. The staff was awful and rude, not to mention dirty and sweaty with no standards. The room meant going outside to a rock hard that creaked, stained floors, and furniture from 1978. At no point did I feel safe - no... More

The room made me shiver when I entered, it was dark, shabby with peeling wallpaper and blinking light-bulbs. It is indeed in a desperate need of redecorating but the cleanliness kind of makes up for it. It proved to be a comfortable room once we got used to the decrepitude. The bathroom was also clean and well equipped. Although the... More

I transferred to the hotel from another at the last minute. It was the only one available within my budget. I expected the worst after I had read online comments on the hotel. Having prepared for the worst i was pleasantly surprised to get the rooms, bathroom, towels and linen clean and smelling fresh. The linens have seen a better... More

The location was ideal for our purposes, but the accommodations were disappointing. I love staying in older buildings with lots of character, but this one didn't do it for me. The window from our room looked out onto what appeared to be a large, covered air shaft w/ sky lights to let some light in. Our window faced onto another... More

For the price and location, you can not beat it. The front desk and maids were all very helpful. My family loved it and we are planning on staying there 2 more times this summer. The front patio was a very relaxing place just to hang out.

The room was small, but that's typical of hotels in downtown locations. It is a good place if all you don't need to spend much time there. My room was on the first floor and quiet. Jaime at the front desk gives good restaurant recommendations.

The hotel is more like a college hostel, but since there is private bathrooms, it classifies as a hotel. When the rude man checked us in he handed us a key to a room 3 floors up and walked away to a back room. Guess what no elevator and we had tons of luggage, when I looked for some help... More
