“Name-less staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Don't think you will ever know this staff by name, they don't have name tags. Don't try to get a late checkout, its such a huge inconvenience for them and they give you attitude about it. the location isn't bad everything is within minutes away, so that's a positive about it. the rooms were clean and the bed and pillows were great. just staff service was no good.

Stayed here on a layover with my girlfriend in September. Check in was easy, booked on Expedia, and paid right away, so checkout was easy. Our stay was only one night, but bed was comfy, ac worked perfectly, and there was a fridge! A simple pleasure with hotels nowadays. Overall not bad you might be able to do better a little closer to I-95.

Stayed at this Best Western as a stopover on our way home from our destination. It was a bit further from I-95 than we expected and in an urban area. The check in was a little tricky since it took 3 trips to the lobby to get a room key that would open the rooms. Our adjoining rooms were clean and comfortable with parking lot view. The breakfast in a large room on the basement floor had a good selection of waffles. eggs, biscuits, fruits and juices. This is a decent hotel for visiting area attractions.

Room Tip: The lower floor rooms are easier to get to the breakfast area quickly which fills up in no time.

Staff was courteous and helpful. Room was clean and was nicely decorated. Bed was comfortable. Temperature in degrees could be set on air conditioner and it cycled on and off quietly. Great stay for the price paid.

Overall very good experience would stay again. if you have to go into DC park at the Franconia-Springfield Metro Station 4.75 per day. Use your GPS for directions Hotel directions were a bit of a challenge--had to stop for directions twice. With GPS it is an easy straight shot to the Metro

This hotel was maybe a "get what you pay for" near Mt Vernon where we visited, however, one should be aware of the downfalls. Our room was dated and therefore didn't feel very clean - the drop ceilings in the bathroom and considerable spiderwebs added to the concern. A good deep cleaning of the room is in much need. Although it is a strict "no smoking" establishment, the hallway was very smokey in the morning.

Overall the staff seemed unattentive to both the guests and the property: unclean rooms, remote control with several non-working buttons, did not ask how our stay was upon check out, outdated menus for local delivery restaurants in the room, neglected to hold door open.

It was quiet and a quick five minute drive to Mt Vernon, but there are other nearby hotels that may be better.

The hotel was very nice and the young man at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. We were on our motorcycles and he pointed out the most secure place to park and he had a wealth of information on where to eat. The room was beautifully appointed and clean. The breakfast would have been plentiful, but the kitchen staff was late and we did not have time to wait for all of the food to be set up. There was a nice large breakfast area.
