This hotel is a bit dated, but it was economical, clean, and (almost) everything worked. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location provided easy (though somewhat congested) access to Washington DC, my primary destination. The room was small but livable. I had to re-arrange the furniture so the desk faced the TV instead of the wall. The breakfast was OK but the choices were somewhat limited: cereal, toast, bagels, and those make-them-yourself waffles. Some bacon or sausage would have been a good addition to the pre-made eggs. The chocolate chip muffins saved the breakfast however; they were great!
I do have a complaint, however. The internet connection was terrible. I have had this problem in Days Inns before, and I used to think the cause was my old laptop computer, but during this visit several other guests reported the same issues. The resident computer expert on the staff couldn't even get it working and pretty much gave up. The internet worked just a little bit better in the lobby than it did in the room, and I was able to get my work done there, but if you are dependent on having the hotel-provided Internet in your room I would advise against staying here.
Overall this was a good experience for the money and I would stay there again.
