We stayed here for a family trip when visiting Washington DC. I didn't have a problem with the staff like some of the other reviewers had, in fact they seemed to be pretty pleasant so maybe they're reading these reviews.
Honestly, I do not think that this hotel is awful for the price that you are staying there for. They have free wifi (that is a little slow) and computer downstairs for guests to use. Parking is $10, however they do have a free shuttle that runs until 10pm and will drop and pick you up from the metro station ( the drive to the metro station is about 5 mins). From the metro station, you can take the metro in to DC or the airport with out a problem.
The hotel is small and doesn't offer too many amenities. It is pretty much a just the basics kind of hotel. I didn't have any problem with the cleanliness of the hotel, it was average. Definitely nothing I would call dirty or feel uncomfortable staying in.
Across from the hotel is a small shopping center with a grocery store, seven-eleven, cvs, and pizza shop. So if you forget anything its nice to just walk across and grab a toothbrush or late night snack. One thing to keep in mind, everything around the area is residential or business, not really too touristy so there aren't many restaurants outside the hotel and the ones there are close fairly early (around 6-8pm).
I would recommend this hotel for people traveling on a budget who don't need all the extra frills of hotel staying.
