Booked hotel because it was close to the college football stadium (20 min walk) and was around $100 a night. It had 2/3 stars so we weren't concerned. Free parking and breakfast included a plus. Room definitely needs some tlc but roon was clean, bed comfy. The hotel setup is a little odd but I guess if you have kids...

First off, t he front desk person--April--was extremely polite and helpful. We enjoyed our first night, with a good rest. The second night was a nightmare. Our room faced the indoor courtyard--with the swimming pool, and lots of seating. There was a big football game the next day, so the hotel was full of families. We figured it would be...

As rated. The motel is terribly dated. The carpet from the common area is like a hundred years old full of stain and smell. It has a funny decoration that tries to give tropical impression on the inside. The pool and hot tub is at the center of the courtyard and with a "cover" that looked like an add-on from...

Let's just stick to the positives! Michelle upon check in became my best friend! She is amazing AND I watched her patiently deal with customers I wouldn't have been able to keep composure with, very courteous in her replies... The pool and hot tub area were amazing and clean without the very harsh chemical smell. Inshaun made sure the area...

Clean, comfortable no-frills rooms. Awesome pool and game room, breakfast and super-friendly staff! They were extremely helpful, and took care of our every need. Really not too far from DC, and the Metro was easy to tale in and out so we didn't worry about driving or parking inside the beltway.

Had a pleasant stay. Close to many fast food centres and the Maryland campus. Had no issues concerning the stay. The basic facilities are provided. Nothing exclusive as such. The food was good. Located amidst entries.

We booked this hotel for our family reunion. The staff was friendly; however, the hotel is horrible and dated. If was not for the family staying there, I would have check my mother out into another hotel. Our rooms were considered an upgrade near the pool. The carpet needs to replace. The area for breakfast the furniture needs a thorough...

We stayed there for a school trip. The hotel is a little dated but the staff was wonderful. Our school left every morning around 7 and returned after 8 every night. So we basically stayed for breakfast then back to shower and sleep. The morning staff was great. They helped us with the waffle station & refilled the food constantly....
