The room was clean and comfortable, there was a nice bench outside on the walkway where you could sit and unwind after a busy day exploring DC and it was good value for money. The shuttle service was perfect for getting to and from the transit system, the breakfast was average and there were plenty of eating places with in...

The staff are all extreamly friendly, and the rooms are kept very nice and clean. Breakfast was nice as well, with a small selection of a variety of breakfast foods. However water took forever to get warm to get showers or washing hands

This hotel was a great price and exceeded every expectation. The hotel staff was warm welcoming and engaging. Check in was very smooth and easy. The room was great, the bed was incredibly comfortable and the linens softer than what I have at home. Surprisingly they have somehow managed to keep such soft towels, even the towels at the Ritz...

Compared to the chain hotels nearby, this is every bit as nice and more of a bargain. Maybe a stretch for four stars, but they make the effort and earn the reward here. They have special rates, just ask. The owner has a passion for restoring this to a traditional American inn and has been hard at work now for...

This is an old school motel which has been well maintained and upgraded with time. As my usual choices were sold out, I picked this property with a bit of a dread. the price was low and pictures not inspiring. I was pleasantly surprised however. Every need of a business traveler is met. The bedding is very good. The room...

I got exactly what I hoped to get from Governor House Inn. When I travel I don't spend much time in hotel rooms so I look mainly for safety, comfort and value. It is an old motel, but my room was clean, comfortable, safe and quiet at a very good price for the Washington, D.C. area - in fact, the...

Although this place was some what further from Washington DC city center than I had expected this was not a big problem. It was a bargain in comparison to what I had found in Washington.

Hotwire had this place as a 2 1/2 star hotel and it actually should be a 1 star. When I opened the door to our room an unpleasant odor met me immediately. The manager did attempt to move me to another room but I refused.
