My wife, kids and I spent a couple of nights here last week while visiting the city. It's perfectly positioned for city trips, whether it be via Metro or using the car. Good sized rooms, decent breakfast, free coffee, free parking, good rates and it's in a really nice area.
I would definitely he's it again.

My grandson and I recently stayed for 3 days. The room was clean and quite adequate. The area appeared safe. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was in close proximity to the Metro. In addition their continental breakfast was good. Furthermore, they allowed us to leave our luggage for the remainder of the day after checking out. For the price and location I would give it a high rating.

Room Tip: We had a room with a microwave and refrigerator. Hot chocolate and coffee were readily available 24...

Pretty basic room but everything worked ok and it was spotless. Comfortable bed. Room is smaller than average - sink is between two walls barely further apart than the sink. Bathroom smaller than average but spotless and everything worked ok. Nice desk with complementary computer in the lobby. Our room was on the north side about 200 ft from a busy intersection with a traffic light - so there was noticeable traffic noise. But we did get a good night's rest. We'd stay again if we could get a room on the other side of the building. Basic complimentary breakfast.

It is great to know that you enjoyed clean, spotless , safe, and comfortable room.Thank you for staying with us and letting others know of additional amenities that our guests would appreciate. Your input is very thoughtful and helpful in determining that.

I apologize that traffic was unusually loud, keeping this in mind when hotel was built, very hight quality sound proof windows were installed.Perhaps in your case perhaps it was left a little ajar or not fully functional.

I am glad you will be back, please let me know so next time, we can assign you a more quieter room.

Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

The staff at the front desk is very courteous and nice. Clean, spacious rooms and safe area. It felt safe to walk alone even at late night from the metro station to the hotel. The price for the room was reasonable compared to other hotels in the DC area. The hotel was a little far from DC and the total time to travel by metro to the capitol hill, including walking to and from the metro stations and waiting for the metro, was about 40-45 minutes.

Room Tip: If traveling with children and would like to have a spacious room with a kitchen,dining table etc...

We stayed here during a spring break vacation with our children ages 15 and 11. This location is so close to the metro orange line. The short walk and safety of the area was perfect. The rooms were a tad bit on the small side for a family of four, but workable. We were hardly in the room except to sleep. There was a Safeway grocery close by via car. The breakfast was simple, but was nice. There were waffles available for my picky son. The cleanliness of the hotel was a plus. The wi fi in the room had no problems. This is a secret gem which was everything we needed for a sightseeing trip to DC. The lack of an elevator caused no problems for our family. My husband made the comment I did a wonderful choice in hotel. For the budget minded family, this was a great choice.

Just stayed here for 6 days while visiting family, friends, and D.C. attractions like the National Zoo and Air & Space museum. 2 small kids and another adult, but our room never felt cramped. We've stayed at the Comfort Inn Ballston, but this hotel was cleaner. Free breakfast (normal fare- toast, fruit, milk, juice, Starbucks coffee) made our trip easier, as we could have a bite before we left for our adventures each day. A very short walk tot he Metro Station, and yummy Mediterranean and sandwitch restaurants 200 feet from parking lot. If you are looking for a reasonable priced place to stay, this is it!!! We will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed on 2nd floor- very quiet. No elevator, FYI.
