My stay here was comfortable, quiet and peaceful. The location is ideal. Interstate 95 is less than 5 minutes away and the mall is very close, as well. However, the memorable part of my stay was Alethea. She is professional, knowledgeable and courteous. My few concerns were addressed quickly to my satisfaction. Although the facility seems to have a small... More

She's personable and her customer skills are outstanding. My room is quite comfortable & all my needs are tended too. The locality is perfect for me to walk to work,dining,... More

Alethea was sweet and gave me the upmost attention as if I were her only guest! The rooms are comfortable and they supply everything to make your visit comfortable. The hotel is close to shopping and dining couldn't ask for more.I would recommend anyone to stay here that's going to be in a hotel for an extended period of time.

Absolutely love this hotel. We have stayed here twice in the last 5 yrs for an extended amount of time, and both times we have stayed Alethea has made our stays so very enjoyable. She definitely has the art of customer service down to a tee!! The rooms are spacious and help you miss home a little less .

I've lived here for close to four years and I must say it's probably at its best since the beginning. The staff is awesome and pretty much became like family. Aletha is such a wonderful person very professional and has a funny personality. Cveta is a amazing hard worker too. They both are very helpful. I've seen many changes in... More

Alethea is always very helpful and professional. Room service is always on time and cleaning is always perfect! If come back to the area I would definitely stay here. Uber travel in the area is great also. Your close to BWI and a quick ride to train stations to go to D.C.

Stayed the night because I didn't want to make the drive home. Very good price - room was $59 for the night. I like this hotel because you get a kitchen and it is like renting a small condo for the night.

This place has seen better days. Dirty,well worn, loud people in hallway, AND SOME KIND OF BUGS IN THE BED!!!!. Was so tired from driving, just needed some rest. Got out of there as fast as we could, should have slept in the car. I better get my refund credited.

Pleasant and convenient area. My room had full-sized refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher. Staff is helpful and friendly. Room was clean, as was the bathroom. Countertop between the kitchen was great for placing phones etc. . . and there were lots of outlets for power. Just right for an extended stay. Great for business stay or family. Pet friendly too.
