This place is old. They have made a few upgrades to the sink and shower/bathtub. But the whole room could use updating. I had a very loud window unit that made it difficult to fall asleep but I didn’t want to get hot so I left it on. I don’t think all rooms have a window unit as I only saw 1 unit from the outside. So maybe request to not get that particular room. The parking is NOT free. It’s $5 a day. They have coffee and water all day in the little lobby where you check in. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The housekeeping staff rock. They’re a little slow but they are willing to get you anything you need. Check in is at 3 and my room wasn’t ready by 6... which I found strange but they were so nice about it and wanted my room to be perfect. They have a small but nice business center where you can print out tickets or anything you need free of charge. The breakfast is decent. Usually eggs and sausage or bacon, waffles, and your typical cold breakfast bar. The workout room could use some newer and more equipment but you’ll still be able to get in a decent workout. Overall this place is clean and a nice place to stay. It’s not like a chain hotel so don’t expect it to be super nice, it’s more like a motel. It’s in a good location, $7-$8 uber ride to Old Town.

The shuttle gets a little busy sometimes. As well as there were some little things that were a little annoying such as: the shower head wouldn't change modes and we had to pull the door handle up. Other than those things, it was great. The staff was super nice and attentive to our needs and it was very clean.

I had a good time staying at this hotel. The free shuttle service to the metro was invaluable. The room smelled a little and there was rust in the tub but it wasn't dirty. It's a great hotel for the price!

front desk person was rude. Wouldn't help me out with a phone call. Also had an attitude with me. Do not recommend. Go to Marriott or Hilton to get an actual hotel.

Four star service in a three-star hotel. The rooms don't need to be updated so much as they need to be cleaned and have some maintenance done. One of the bed frames had pieces of metal sticking out and my aunt kept barking her shins on them. The caulking around the bathtub was coming up in several places. The fixtures cover plates were coming up. And many things look like they hadn't been cleaned. A giant blob of orange goo on the wall under the sink where you normally would put your toilet kit, leftover toothpaste covering the bathroom sink fixtures. There was also the bad experience we have breakfast. We were told the breakfast ended at 9:30 so we showed up at 8:30 and found that there was no more eggs or sausage or cream. They were out of great number of things already. Thinking maybe it was a fluke the next morning we went down and once again they were out of most of the food. This app is where the place shines. Mr Mohamed at the front desk is kind and friendly. We ended up with a room on the second floor even though I had a stroller, and he helped me bring it upstairs every time. The different gentlemen that drove the shuttle bus were kind intended to help me get the car seat in and out and put the stroller in the back. We were told him this on the phone that with our AAA discount it would be a hundred 32 a night. Somehow it ended up being 95 for the first night and then a hundred fifty for the next two nights and then we were charged $15 a night for each of our two cars. This was all before taxes. So in the end, friendly staff but we won't be staying there again.

It was not unpleasant at all. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was plentiful. Breakfast was what you'd expect. The air conditioning wasn't adequate for the room size though.

We had a wonderful experience with our stay this past week. The staff was wonderful and the room was clean and nice !! The convenience of the shuttle was a life saver, we were able to go back and forth to the metro with ease and didn't have to worry about driving into town for dinner, the shuttle was able to take us and pick us up. The breakfast was great, they had a make your own waffle station, scrambled eggs, sausage, cereal, bagels and more ! We will definitely stay here the next time we visit DC !!

Strange experience. My room was almost at 90degrees (the thermostat was reading 86 degrees) when I walked in. I could not open the window, nor could I turn on the air conditioning nor even a fan. I just had to turn the machine off and left my door open for a half-hour to an hour or so to let it cool down. The next morning, I learned that my colleagues staying at the same hotel had no heat at all. I gave an extra star because the staff was great.

I loved staying here for the 4 days we were in Virginia. The management and employees were so polite and kind. They were very gracious towards my large family and I. The motel room was very clean and well kept, room service always did a wonderful job. Free shuttle service that drove us to airport and around town, free breakfast and tea/coffee availability near the front desk. Very beautiful inside and outside the motel. We loved it, will make this the place we stay the next time we come visit Virginia.

Accommodating and courteous staff. Convenient shuttle to and from airport and close by locations. Clean room and bathroom. Hot water made hot bath extremely enjoyable after a whole day of walking. Parking on-site. Close to a trader Joe for any last minute snack needs.
