“The Bates Motel............”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2005

This place is a nightmare. The facility looks nothing like the photo on the Trip Adviser screen. Its one of those seedy old run down "no tell motel's" that someone has bought on the cheap. Slapped a coat of paint on it and put up a new sign. The lobby slash dinning area was (give or take) about 20 feet square. We were scheduled to stay three nights; we left after one, and cancelled the second and third night. The rooms were drab, and travel worn. The sheets were so thin you could hold them up to the window and watch traffic go by. The bathroom was shabby, stained, broken tile, and moldy.

This hotel is just okay. The positives: price was reasonable considering that it is in the DC area, the staff was friendly and helpful, the pool was well maintained, they provided a a decent breakfast - cereal, waffles, fruit, juice etc - in the morning, and the room had most of the amenities that we look for while travelling (iron, ironing board, hair dryer, etc.). The negatives: the room smelled like a stale hotel room, the room was worn, the air conditioner barely cooled off the room, beds were not very comfortable, every door and molding and fixture didn't fit the way that they were supposed to, and the paint had been slopped on and was mostly still there. While this hotel was a little less expensive than others in the area, I don't think that it was worth it.
