We stayed here for 4 nights during our family vacation to Washington, D.C. We picked it for the location to the Metro and the price. The price was great and the service was wonderful. Older hotel, but kept clean. It is about 1 mile from the Metro and the hotel will shuttle you to the station but not pick you up, but the walk back is down hill). You can park your car at the Metro for $5 a day, which is what we did. The hotel has an outdoor pool with a lifeguard. Very clean pool. Only open from about 4 pm to 9pm, which was a small bummer, although it worked for us as we went sight seeing during the day. The free breakfast was probably the biggest downside. The hotel was full of people and the place to get breakfast was small and crowded. They served breakfast from 6 am - 9am but by 8:30 they were out of most food and it was not retocked - so get your food early! We ended up getting McDonalds two days to just avoid the crowd and hassle. On another food note, the resturant attached to the hotel has WONDERFUL gyros and pizza.
We had a situation after the first night, with our room not locking as we were getting ready to leave for the day. The front desk sent a maintence worker up immediately and when he coudn't fix it right away, they gave us a new room so we could secure our items. On our last night we realized that we had left a shoe in the previous room and they let us back in to get it. They checked back with us about an hour later to see if we found it. (we had) We thought that was really kind for them to check with us.
