“Good Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

n older motel but kept clean and has good beds. Convenient to bus stops, if you plan to use public transportation. Rooms open to the outside. Rooms have plenty of square footage. There is complimentary HBO.

This Best Western was more of a motel converted to a hotel as the entrances to the room were on the outside. We parked and then came down a walkway to our room entrance. Not that that was a major problem, just unexpected. I didn't feel as safe as in a regular interior hotel room. However nothing untoward happened.Our room was comfortable, very basic amenities, again more on the lines of a more economical place. For one or 2 nights it was fine. Check-in was smooth. The desk clerk was very accommodating when we asked for adjoining rooms for our group. Since we were only there for a short stay I couldn't say anything about any other available items like a gym. We did walk by a largish outdoor pool. There is a complimentary breakfast in a very large and bright breakfast room. There was a wide variety of the usual complimentary breakfast items including scrambled eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits, waffles, fruit, yogurt. My husband likes oatmeal in the morning so was sorry that was not available. Rates for the hotel were reasonable for the area especially over inauguration weekend.
The beds were comfortable, pillows ok. Bathrooms could use some refreshing. I would stay there again for a short stay.

My Family of five and I recently stayed at this hotel for the Inauguration of our President and also to catch some sites of DC. It was such a pleasant stay that we have to come back when the weather gets warmer. Aside from the delicious breakfast provided to us each day of our stay at no cost, the staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. It was an easy ride to the metro to visit DC and the restaurants in the area were great. I visited outback steakhouse and Famous Daves BBQ. Our room was clean and the shower relaxing. We had a fun time indeed! You just can not beat the best deal in town.

Room Tip: Ground floor is always good to avoid the stairs.

Everything was good for the price. The thing I was most impressed with was the staff. Everyone was extremely polite and professional. Amenities were close by making it convenient for a long trip. I only stayed one night but I would have no problem making it a longer stay for future occasions.

Hotel is right off the highway and easy to get to. Rates are reasonable even during holiday season. Room was the typical Bet Western type. But the breakfast was better than most. The desk gives you a voucher for breakfast, which is eaten in their restaurant. The food was better than usual and a better selection (real scrambled eggs, pancakes, waffles etc).

We were on the pool side of the hotel and it was very quiet. The mattress and pillows were a bit too firm for my taste.

My husband and I spent 12 days in late October, early November 2012 at this hotel. It is probably truer to describe it as a motel; it has two stories. We enjoyed a large room, sparkling clean bathroom, free parking, wi fi and a remarkable hot and cold breakfast each morning, including pancakes and self-made waffles, which were scrumptious. Service was responsive, the people at the desk and the cleaning crew were friendly and helpful. The hotel was quiet and clean, two major criteria for us, and the price was very competitive.

This hotel is not a glitzy place; it is older, but well maintained and very clean.

We found many more than satisfactory restaurant options within minutes of the hotel, and staff recommended a few that were actually within walking distance.

If we were to return to this area, there is no question that we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Our room was in the back, where it was away from any traffic.

This was a very nice stay. We really liked the breakfast in the mornings.
The pool looked nice, but it was too cold to try it out.
It was very convenient to mass transit. The bus to the metro was right across the street.
