The showers' water pressure was extremely low, I had to shower twice as long as normal to rinse off. There was plenty of water pressure at the sink and for the bathtub, however once you switched to shower it magically disappeared. You could hear the pipes moan as the water was choked off by the ultra low volume showerhead. I spoke with three other guests who confirmed that this was not an isolated problem. All complained that the shower was a joke.
The room also had an odd smell (staleness) which we seemed to get used to after awhile in the room. When you exited the elevator, the hallway had a pungent smell of a curry like substance.

On the plus side our room was clean and the bed was not uncomfortable. The price was reasonable for the area. Parking was free and they offered free WiFi.
Would consider staying again only if the showerheads were replaced with those which will actually rinse the soap off.

Spartan, plain, but clean, comfortable, and in good shape. Not someplace you'd go as a destination hotel, but for business types needing a place to sleep, or someone with family business in the area, it's a fine value. Closet is more an open alcove, but the room is good sized (two queen beds), wireless internet included in the price (unlike many upscale hotels that charge $10+/day). Overall a quite reasonable value, and I'll go back when business takes me there again.

In town for a funeral, the staff at the front desk treated us like family and truly cared about our stay and even the funeral we were going too. I will stay here again if I come back to Arlington

A group of us just stayed there for a family funeral. It has what we wanted for a budget hotel -- clean rooms, friendly staff, easy parking, easy to use wireless internet. The breakfast is nothing special, but I didn't expect that it would be. Staff went out of their way to be helpful.

Why does it seem that mostly dissatisfied customers write reviews?

I'm staying here and it's just fine: Two queen beds and nice furnishings. WIFI Internet with no password required. Good breakfast with boiled eggs, cook-your-own waffles, apples, cereal. Free parking. 5.5 miles from Dupont Circle by car. Free newspapers. Microwave and fridge in room. Desk with office chair. Operable windows. FF miles. Elevator from underground garage. 1/2 block from route 66. Good price.

Overall: Very nice.
