Rooms and bathrooms are ridiculously small and dirty. Looks very old. Only a full size bed. No fridge. My meals are paid for but would rather eat out just to get out of this place. No room to place my luggage. Had to put it on the desk just to get my clothes out. Hit my

We are sorry you aren't satisfied with your stay so far, and concerned to hear that your room and bathroom aren't meeting our standards of cleanliness. Please absolutely reach out to the front desk so we may have our housekeeping team take care of that for you. We do understand that our single bed rooms may be a bit of an adjustment. They were designed with a specific intention for our corporate training groups. That being said, we have several other room categories that follow traditional hotel room designs. If you are interested in upgrading your room, we are always happy to show you what is available. Our goal is for your stay to be comfortable and productive, so please let us know how we can help to ensure that for you. Sincerely, The Bolger Center Management Team

In the middle of nowhere and no easy access to eat or find shops off site. Room was small and cramped for 2 people. Food typical American style. Also hosts school groups as well as weddings and conferences, sometimes at the same time! Wouldn’t recommend as a venue for business

Thank you for sharing feedback from your visit. We are sorry to hear you weren't comfortable in your room, and would be happy to share the other room type options for any future visits. Given how much meeting space we have, and our ability to offer privacy to each group, we do sometimes have a variety of events any given week or weekend. Our meals are served buffet-style and we work hard to offer items that satisfy all dietary preferences (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, etc). Please feel free to reach out directly if you had any specific issues with your food so we may address any changes needed. Sincerely, The Bolger Center Management Team

I was attending a workshop at Bolger Center and stayed there for 3 days in building A. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. The rooms are very small though, I would even say they're too small. This was really the smallest room I've ever stayed in. I also found the room a bit

I found Bolger Center online when I was going to be visiting Potomac for the first time. I chose it because of its reasonable price, but I was pleasantly surprised by the value! The room was clean and comfortable (if small, but I was traveling alone), the grounds are gorgeous,

How warm is the pool, and is it long enough for serious lap swimming? And is there a fitness room? Thanks!
It was way too warm for me. To the point of being uncomfortable, but yes you can do lap swimming.

"So many rooms in different buildings, d block seems a good option."
"Higher rooms will get a better breeze for the time when the A/C is off. Get to the dinning hall at the beginning of the meal service hours."
"Double room includes two beds, a separate small living area and small bathroom."
"Recently remodeled rooms are better."
"Only certain buildings have better rooms."
