My boyfriend and I decided to go away for a few days for his birthday during the memorial day weekend. I called to book an special from the Internet for 105 a night. I reached a lady who had to
call me back because she was cooking breakfast. No problem, and after 30mins I received a phone call to go ahead and book the room. We arrived in DC a few hours later my instructions from the email gave check in time from 3-5:30 it was 1:45 so me and my boyfriend did some site seeing until that time. First thing I think everyone should know is that this inn is in the middle of the ghetto, the pictures look nice online and all but its in the hood. You know you in the hood when there is a liquor store on every other corner, check cashing places, 24hr laundry mats, and pawn shops...ask me how I know. Anyway our instructions were to use the code to get in the main building and there would be an envelope with our name on it....well there was no envelope and since it was check in time I thought someone would be there at least from the hours of 3-5:30,( but I did tell the lady that we didn't know what time we would arrive due to the traffic) Well we had to go search for some one to give us the keys which at the time he did explain that there is an in-room continental breakfast
he also gave some some flyers and brochures. We found our room and it was like an apartment without a stove or oven. I took some time to go over the brochures . The bed is a little to soft for my taste but other than that everything else for the rest of the night was fine. Now maybe my idea for a continental breakfast is a a bit much on the brochure it said that it would be bagels, fresh fruit, toast, coffee, yogurt ect....now in the kitchen there was two muffins wrapped up from Costco, packs of instant oatmeal, two apples and an orange, yoplait yogurt, honey bunches of oats in a canister. I thought that they would bring some bagels or toast in the morning because that was on one of the brochures given to at check in time..but no.. my boyfriend called Carolyn about 7:30 in the morning and asked about the bagels and toast that were on the brochure they gave us. She was not nice at all she was sarcastic toward my boyfriend and told us it was too early in the morning. Well what time do people eat breakfast??? In the MORNING...she said that she would call us back. Rob called us back and told us that the bagels and toast were discontinued, which was fine.( he also said that we could go get a bagel and he would give us the money for it) I just didn't know why Carolyn didn't tell us that the first time.....Well not a good experience for my first time at a so-called bed and breakfast next time I'll stay at the comfort inn.
