The location is convenient if you need to travel to the D.C. area- it really is a straight drive on Fairfax drive. The front desk staff were nice and courteous. The room felt a little bit dated but still clean and comfortable.

You really get what you pay. The staff is very helpful and nice but the hotel needs an overhaul. The fan in the bathroom will wake up all neighbors and the AC is ancient. The rest is practical and clean.
