Room was dated. Very loud music and singing coming from somewhere in the hotel. We called the desk and we're told it was a church group who would be singing for several more hours- past 10pm. Most hotels want it quiet after 8:00. We were given a different room but it was still noisy. Breakfast was poor. Eggs were powdered....

This used to be a Comfort Inn and now its a little worn and showing its age. Hmmm, let's see; I could rate it down because it has seen a few years and suggest the current owners spend millions of dollars and double the price to pay for those improvements, or I could live with a little worn carpet and...

Also, the in room coffee...

As a computer scientist traveling to DC to work with DARPA, I'm appalled that I can't do any work because there's no internet in my room (room 240 to be exact). Simply unacceptable. Other than that, this is just a normal hotel. In hindsight I should've done Airbnb which would be more personal and likely cheaper. They are plenty of...

We have actually stayed twice. One of the major things we loved about this is the continental breakfast.

The Governor House Inn is an older Motel ala the Route 66 Roadway Inns. The price per night was a bargain considering it is in the DC area. The rooms were clean and up to date. The staff and management was helpful and well informed. The Motel provided free shuttle service to the Metro. I stayed for 8 nights and...

We booked a night in this hotel. The surroundings are beautiful and it's one of the closest hotels to the colonial area. Did not encounter any problem during booking through expedia or checkout. Included nice pool area and continental breakfast. The room themselves are very comfortable and overall had a very good experience.
