I ended up staying here for a conference, because the conference hotel and all of the other nearby hotels were full. In my family "Best Western" is not a good word in hotels, so I went with trepidation....
The room was clean but had a definite plasticky odor, like a new shower curtain (but the shower curtain wasn't new!). The caulking in the bathroom looked strictly amateur night, and the water temperature was variable, but livable.
The hotel does offer free wireless, but I didn't have a computer with me to test it. The TV has a full complement of cable channels, though.
The continental breakfast was minimal (bagels and cold cereal mostly, plus coffee and juice) but ok. There were only eight tables in the room, though, and it sometimes took a while to find a place to sit.
The neighborhood is relatively quiet. Even though we were right near I-395, I heard very little, if any, traffic noise. Across the street, there's an abandoned, grafitti marked hotel that should be avoided.
My travel agent didn't even know there was a shuttle service, so I ended up on a Metrobus, and walking a long block from the bus stop to the hotel. The hotel shuttle serves both this Best Western and the nearby Comfort Inn, so it can get crowded. Also it serves both the Pentagon City Metro and the Reagan Airport, so it occasionally gets off-schedule. A cab to the Metro shouldn't cost more than $8 or so....
