When visiting the Washington DC area, I usually stay in the area of College Park, MD. This time, I was staying longer with the same budget and chose to stay the Sleep Inn & Suites in Laurel, MD. It is located only about 12 miles farther out than where I usually stay. While my drive in the first day took longer than expected, the next morning I left 15 minutes earlier and that cut my driving time from the day before in half. No big deal getting down to College Park.
My room was on the 3rd floor facing north. Even though it was almost next to the elevator, it was very quiet. I was never bothered by the noise of people coming and going. The room was very clean with no strong cleaning odors. The bed was very comfortable and that allowed me a good night's sleep each night. The bathroom had a walk-in shower with a sliding glass door. I really liked that over the usual bath tub with a shower curtain. Actually, I chose this room because of the shower. Housekeeping did an excellent job of cleaning the room each day, paying very good attention to detail.
They provide a Continental Breakfast with enough variety to keep me happy. Love the waffles that you make yourself. Choices of juice, cereal (hot and cold), pastry, breads for toast, a couple different flavors of yogurt, hard boiled eggs, and plenty of great coffee. During the weekend, the eating area can really get crowded. I found it best to get up a little earlier and was able to beat the crowd most mornings.
I did use their laundry facility (one washer and one dryer - that was all I needed). Both worked great. You will need $2 in quarters to wash and another $2 to dry. A bargain when compared to the alternative and very convenient.
You can tell this hotel has been around for a while. But it is well maintained and clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Even if I am not on a budget, I might just stay here again and save a few $$$$.
