I can totally understand reviewers who had issues and gave lower ratings. We had a few iffy moments (very slow desk clerk with someone ahead of us and several behind for what seemed like an eternity, I honestly could not understand 30% of what he said and he got wrong 30% of what I said; card key didn't work one night at midnight, no one at front desk, up runs a guy from outside with no identifying clothing who looks nothing like a clerk. That was weird. But he was, in fact, the night clerk and fixed us in 10 seconds). But nothing added up to a major negative and it was well worth the $260 to have stayed there over the $560 to stay again in Silver Spring for family visits in SS (at Marriot Courtyard or Hilton Garden Inn, and that was always not only without Continental Breakfast but nickel and diming us at every turn.)
OK, so the breakfast wasn't great but it was clean and among the modest choices I was plenty satisfied for getting my day started. Good enough. Wireless was too slow to watch videos on the iPad but it worked as advertised. Clerk said that if wireless was too slow to get an ethernet cable and go hardwired and it would be faster. I took that as a sign I should just check emails and go to bed : ) TV and cable was fine, as was iron, fridge, microwave and in-room coffee maker. Basically no surprises. Room was good sized, clean and I couldn't detect any smoke.
Close enough to SS, where we went daily, to not be the least bit inconvenient. Will definitely be back, although my curiosity was piqued by nearby even lower budget places with typical motel names that were so non-chain-like as to not be listed on any hotel list! : ) But maybe I should keep my hand and hold instead of pushing my luck.
