I have stayed in this hotel twice, both because I was in town for work. I used to live not too far away from this hotel when I lived in Arlington and knew the neighborhood was safe, and the prices beat those that are closer in in more touristy areas. Also free parking, a great perk for the DC area. The downside is that it is not close to a metro and is not right downtown near the tourist spots, although it appears a shuttle will take you to a metro stop. Both times I planned to drive into DC for work purposes, and if the traffic is not too horrible during rush hour, it should take less than 30 minutes to get downtown depending on where you want to go. Probably less than 30 minutes during non rush hour. Of course rush hour lasts forever in DC!
The property itself is in good shape, clean and the rooms were nice as you would expect from a Hampton. Nice bathroom and fixtures, plenty of towels.
I preferred the room that faced the main street rather than the room more toward the back of the property that faced apartments. The only reason for this is because on the night I was in that room (a Thursday), at about 5 am Friday morning the trash truck came and the beeps from the truck from backing up were incredibly piercing. And seemed to last forever - how much trash could there be?? Absolutely no need for an alarm after that!
