We stayed here over the Labor Day holiday 2012. The location is great (proximity to I-395 to D.C.) and the service is good too, but the room was dirty. There was a previous review complaining of bed bugs (confirmed on this site by manager), but the clerk at check-in denied any knowledge of it! Either management keeps them ignorant or they are lying. Either way, it's dishonest. Management: own up to it, tell us what you've done to fix and prevent future occurrences! Apart from this instance, the staff were courteous and helpful. Since I had already paid, we took a chance. We always check and found no bed bugs. However, the room was very dusty and dirty (found a candy bar rapper behind a nightstand). A coating of dust in every corner and in all cabinets
The outdoor pool was in the shape of a duck! Because this is the logo of Homewood Suites I'm sure they though it very cute but, it is very small and the shape only allows for about 8 people to move around.
pros: cheap, location (although not close to Metro, they have a shuttle), hot tub, gym
cons: dirty room, small outdoor pool
