The room was nice. Beds were comfortable, size of the room was good, etc. No complaints. The hotel is quite centrally located, so that is great if you're touring around DC, and I believe it is a lot less expensive than other centrally located hotels.
The hotel is on the campus of Gallaudet University, and there is a shuttle that takes you to Union Metro Station. The scheduled shuttle runs finish kind of early in summer (7pm - last pick-up at Union Station taking you to the hotel) so we usually ended up taking cabs back to the hotel. That wasn't a big deal because it only cost $10 (not including tip). They also have another shuttle service which picks you up or drops you off at the location of your choice (within a certain distance), but I don't think it operates on weekends.
I have read mixed reviews about the immediate neighbourhood. I didn't want to chance walking to the nearby Noma Metro Station in the dark so we opted to take cabs from Union Station rather than walk. We walked to the nearby Union Market during the day, and it seemed fine, but I didn't want to take a chance just to save $10.
The breakfast was pretty expensive and not all that great. It cost $30 for two people for the buffet that included eggs, and the food was kind of cold-ish. The wait staff also did not speak, they only signed. That wasn't a big deal; we were able to communicate with them quite easily, as did others who did not sign, we noticed. Since the breakfast was a buffet, you didn't need to have detailed conversations with the wait staff, anyway.
Since we didn't want to eat cold and overpriced eggs after that first time, we opted for eating breakfast at Subway at Union Station the rest of the days.
Overall, I'd stay there again. It was comfortable, the room was reasonably priced, and well-located.
