Cheap and clean older property spread over several unconnected buildings with serious issues: VERY close to a major highway into DC with loud traffic round the clock, don't NOT stay in the front rooms facing the road, you will have trouble sleeping with the noise. Popular with cheap Chinese bus tours of the DC area so can have flash crowds...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed August 21, 2016

The Governor House Inn is an older Motel ala the Route 66 Roadway Inns. The price per night was a bargain considering it is in the DC area. The rooms were clean and up to date. The staff and management was helpful and well informed. The Motel provided free shuttle service to the Metro. I stayed for 8 nights and...

Stayed one night with my little dog. Apparently they only allow pets in the smoking rooms. I didn't mind as I've stayed in smoking rooms before and the smell was always faint. But this room smelled like 50 people each smoked a carton of cigarettes an hour before we arrived. It was unbearable and we high tailed it out of...

I had one of the rooms in the front. There was alot of vacancy, so getting a room was easy and parking was abundant. The hotel clerk, Brenda, was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and there was maid service everyday. I recommend this location for the side road it offers away from the main Arlington Blvd. Nothing...

I have stayed at other motels before with similar pricing but the rooms are not quite good as they are here, the rooms are clean and have a lot of space and big bed that is very comfortable to sleep in.

The room was clean, 2 big beds, ok for 4 people. The price is ok, not too expensive . But ask for a room far from the road or you won't be able to sleep well. Unfortunatly when we were there one saturday night some people close to our room made a party ! Impossible to sleep ! The location...

The Governor House Inn has a free shuttle to the Metro, free breakfast, clean rooms and very helpful front desk staff! Our 4 day stay was very reasonable, and we would definitely return to this location!!!.

I stayed at this motel for a few days during the spring break. The room had a strong moldy smell. I tried to use the air-conditioner to get some fresh air in, but it only spewed out hot air. I learned the air conditioner system in the hotel was not working, and had to keep the door ajar to get...

Lijun C. I'm very disappointed with this happening -I do know I got caught with out AC ready when that 90 degree early April stretch caught me unawares. That combined with your Breakfast experience is disappointing - Please consider contacting me personally at the hotel for your next visit so I may make amends. Thank you, Dave

We needed a place to stay while in falls church and near Washington DC. The hotel needs some TLC, the TV doesn't work well, the internet service blocks membership websites, and the water spouts in the sink and shower don't work well at all. However, if you need a place to crash for a cheap price, this would be that...
