Me and my friends wanted to visit Washington D.C for the weekend but didnt want to stay in D.C. We chose this hotel because it was 1 mile from metro station. The hotel was clean and staff was nice. The price was great. I would return again.

The front desk staff was absolutely fantastic!!! Both Sarah and Debbie were very understanding and helpful with all of the problems I experienced there. In fact, I cannot express in words how wonderful Cedric was. To wit, he singlehandedly helped me to plan our entire 6 days in D.C. I am so indebted to him for his assistance. Unfortunately though,...

Great service, great room, great price but most of all great location. There is a bus stop across the street to the left about 1/8 of a mile that will take you to shopping of all kinds. Across the street and around the corner to the left there is a bus stop that takes you to the yellow train line...

We paid for the Premium rooms...which are on the second floor. Unfortunately for most of our two day stay the elevator was not working and the centre staircase was being painted. That meant we had to lug our heavy luggage a lot further than we would have liked. However, that was more about bad timing than anything permanent. Other than...

Very friendly staff. Comfortable, clean, accessible. Nice spot to rest while visiting all the great treasures of this area. We're totally blown away by the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Rivals Rome in scale and Sacred Art!!

I can't believe the reviews for this place averaged out to a 4. Seems impossible that anyone liked it here. Red Roof Inn Plus is worse than terrible. It gets a zero rating. I stayed here for business and there was a constant element of shady characters. Be prepared to spend a restless, noise filled night. The four construction workers...

The good points: the property For a budget hotel, the recently renovated rooms are much better than I expected from a budget motel: large, well-equipped, and clean. Although located on a heavily traveled highway, the grounds are nicely landscaped and the back of the hotel faces a bamboo mini-forest. A mixed point: location The location is very close to Alexandria...

I was definitely impressed with his hotel for the price. It's pretty close to D.C. Very clean and the staff is very friendly. If I had to say one negative thing I would say that there isn't really a lot within walking distance and the traffic around this area can be horrible especially in D.C. if you are a first...
