“Great price, solid hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Stayed here three nights while visiting DC with my wife and two daughters. Convenient to Metro and places to eat, even a mall close to the Metro station. Free parking daily and they let you keep your car there until 11 PM after you have checked out. Free breakfast is okay, not great. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. With free parking and free breakfast, probably saved 40-45 bucks a day.

From the staff at front desk, to excellent bedding, a shuttle to take you to and from the Metro into DC, I'd stay here again and recommend to anyone going to sightsee our nations capital! Best for the money and far less expensive than in the city!

Stayed a week while vacationing in DC. Hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the Metro. Free parking and free breakfast (both hot and cold items) and large rooms. Rooms were comfortable and clean and staff was friendly. Good choice for an affordable stay to visit DC.

We stayed here with four grandchildren while visiting Washington. We spent a long time deciding, and are very happy with our choice. The property is convenient to the Interstate going to the city, a 10-15 minute drive to the parking garage. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and taken care of every day. Free parking was greatly appreciated. We would definitely consider this hotel again.

For our first trip to the Washington DC area, we chose this hotel for a combination of price and access to the metro. Free parking and free breakfast saved us significant money for our four nights. Staff was friendly and the facilities were clean and quiet. We'll consider it again for our next visit.

Was visiting DC for vacation and selected this hotel after reviewing options on Tripadvisor.com.
This location offered free parking(which is hard to come by in the DC area). The price was half of what I would of spent on a hotel in DC. We drove to DC each day it was a 15 minute drive. This was a transit station (which has no parking) and the hotel has a free hourly shuttle which we did not use.We did not notice any restaurants within a few blocks of this motel. The area seemed safe. The breakfast included waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, yogurt, cereal, fruit, pastries. The internet was free and worked fine.There was a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. I did request an inside room due the fact that the there was an interstate next to the hotel. Overall a pleasant stay and would stay there again.

looking at the interiors, you would say it is expensive, but it is very close to the ballston commons area. they are renovating, so things are improving every time i visit. given that the price is about 15 or so cheaper than better hotels, one might go for the more expensive ones, but here's a thing to consider. this hotel has free hot breakfast ( good breakfast actually ), a nice place to sit and eat that breakfast ( if you are lucky - as the seating area is small ) and a place to park your car for free. if you add up these costs ( for a family visit ), this hotel is much cheaper. interiors are decent ( like an old home ) everything works. friendly decent staff. will go back again.

Room Tip: any room is ok. all rooms open out to open areas unlike most other expensive hotels in the area that...
