“This place looks better than it is...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

This place looks better than it is. Firstly, there is no Aunt Bea. Instead there's a guy that is a little bit peculiar. The room itself had an exposed wiring next to the bed. The pillows were the worst I've ever used.

The shower was broken and wouldn't turn on. Then, once on it wouldn't turn off. Then, the only thing worse than having a faulty shower is having to get the aforementioned strange man to help you when you're half naked.

To his credit the breakfast was Ok.

The location of the house is pretty poor-- though it does increase your chance if being on ab episode of 'Cops'.

kentonvac, Manager at Aunt Beas Little White House B&B, responded to this review, October 13, 2010
I am truly sorry that the shower broke down. A plumber was summoned to repair this the following morning. This was unfortunate and the guest seemed to understand this could happen anywhere. I have looked carefully and can find NO electrical wires exposed, the pillows are all in very good shape and I would promptly replace anything that was not. As for as personalty comments made by the guest- I suppose those are in the eye of the beholder. What really has me confused is none of this except the plumbing problem was brought to my attention and if it had been I would have done what ever the guest requested to solve it. I will continue to endevaor to please each guest and correct anything that is brought to my attention. Sincerely, Gerald, innkeeper

This comfortable B&B is located about 2 blocks from the metro, which quickly took us all over Washington, DC. We parked our car for free nearby and used public transportation exclusively.

Our host served a good breakfast and gave good advice about parking, the Metro, and local attractions.

The area is mixed business and residential, and is safe to walk around, even at night. There's one Tex-Mex restaurant nearby, and a couple of stores selling groceries that took to our room to make light suppers.

I stayed here with a friend a few weeks ago. The owner is incredibly kind and the house is so charming!

I stayed one night in Aunt Beas B&B and all I can say is that I was absolutely stunned by the quality of the service and sleep I got there, which were much appreciated after DC remarkably long walks. Climatization is just perfect, you got a nice tub in order to get a replenishing hot bath and the combination of a good matress and a quiet neighborhood makes it perfect to anyone refill their batteries.The staff is excelent and very caring, the breakfast is amazing and I still can`t believe that I paid that less. Don`t waste your money in $100+ hostels with poor service and rooms. Aunt Beas is by far the best value you can get for less than that price.

A pleasant four minute walk from the metro Red Line CUA station (very very convenient if you've arrived by Bolt bus (which is close to the Chinatown stop) or Union Station), Aunt Beas is located in a sweet old neighborhood of detached homes with small front yards. Decorated in the "shabby chic" style, my room had a mini fridge, TV and comfortable bed. (Shared a modern bath.) Everything was very clean. Gerald -- the thoughtful and hard-working host -- had placed a jar of small roses on the bed table (nice touch). Breakfast began with orange juice and an excellent fruit salad; hard-boild eggs, turkey bacon, toast, yoghurt, cereal -- as you wished. There was a computer to check email in breakfast room. As a B&B, I appreciated that I could arrive late in the evening (10:00 p.m.) my first evening. I have already recommended it to a friend -- hope to return myself on my next visit to DC.

Aunt Beas is a charming little home in a neighbourhood not too far from the centre of DC (about 4 mins walk to the subway & then only a few stops from Union Station). The owner Gerald is very friendly & approachable & cooks a yummy, healthy breakfast for you each morning (which after a month of fried food, was perfect for us!) We found the hostel (really more like a b&b) to be very quiet, clean & adequate, we will def reccommend to friends & would stay again! Thanks for a lovely stay!

We stayed at Aunt Bea’s for 6 nights and can’t recommend it highly enough! It’s comfy, clean, cozy and charming and feels just like a home away from home. Gerald’s hospitality is second-to-none: his tips on where to go and what to do in DC are great and the breakfasts he cooks up are incredibly tasty, healthy and filling. Located an easy 5 minute walk from the Brookland-CUA Metro station and within a little neighbourhood shopping area, you definitely won’t be disappointed staying here. Thanks Gerald, we loved our stay and we’ll miss your excellent breakfasts and morning chats! Hugh & Stephanie
