I booked this motel online for my trip to D.C. and thought it would be ok since it had a 3 star rating by reviewersand said newly remodeled. I only planned to stay there at night to sleep since most of my time would be in D.C. I arrived at the motel at 11pm and was told I could not check in for 10 more minutes because of shift change. So while hanging out I noticed a police officer working off duty in the parking lot. He said he would be there to 3am. It sounds safe to have a cop in the parking lot all night, but if they hire a cop to work in the parking lot it must be a dangerous area. The parking lot was gated which is another sign of a dangerous area. After finally checking in, I went to my non-smoking room. It was clearly marked non-smoking by the non-smoking sticker on the ashtray. The room smelled like a mixture of cigarette smoke, mold, and filth. I wanted to leave my door open but was afraid to get robbed. I am still hoping the sheets were just really old and not that dirty. The TV was small (19 inch) and should have been in an antique store. If it was any older it would have been black and white. Needless to say, I did not sleep well that night. I had a reservation for 2 nights but only stayed 1. If this motel was my only option for a place to sleep, I would have stayed in my car.
