“Just Don't Do It !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Sorry, but this stay had no redeeming qualities of any kind. I've ended up on mud floors under thatched roof and still found something worthwhile in the experience and consider myself an extremely flexible traveler with very modest expectations but this one had nothing of interest to offer.

I noticed another traveler mentioned they found a clean room. Must have been at a different place.

There was nothing remotely resembling anything which had been cleaned including the entrance and lobby. Carpets, furniture was so worn, tired, broken, it was not serviceable to be cleaned. Worse, it was uninteresting.

Room Tip: Just dont do it.

My son and I stayed at this hotel for three nights while touring DC. Thank goodness we didn't have to spend much time in the room. The room was sooooo small. Barely room for our two suitcases to be open on the floor at the same time. The walls are paper thin and we heard the conversations of the guests in the room next to us. The wall air conditioner was so loud that if we did have the Television on we had to have it turned up so loud I was afraid the guests in the next room would complain. The lobby has a nice seating area, but that is the only space available to eat breakfast. There were so many people crammed into the lobby for breakfast that it was uncomfortable and the wait for the waffle machine almost wasn't worth it.

The bathroom was newly remodeled and I found that to be my favorite part of the room.

When I checked in they charged the card that I made the reservation with even though I asked if I could pay cash. When they told me the transaction was voided it took 3 full days for the charge to disappear from my account. Good thing I didn't need that money for the trip.

I'm not giving this hotel a poor review, just reporting it like I saw it. It didn't live up to the expectations I had for it, but it definitely was in my price range which is a bonus. If you don't plan on spending much time in your room and can go out for breakfast elsewhere, its an ok place to stay.

If you are looking for the hotel with fancy amenities and decors, this is not the one. The hotel is conveniently located in rather quiet area but 15 min walk to Dupon Circle and one block walk to lively P Street where many restaurants and Whole Foods are located. The room is clean, and has a full clean bath room with bath tub, refrigerator, free wifi connection, TV, alarm clock and A/C. ( Each room may be different. Better ask when you book.) The hotel provides a free simple breakfast at the lobby. The front desk is freindly and helpful.

This is one of those case where I do not recognise the hotel from some of the poor reviews here. Although rather strangely there was nowhere to hang clothes we stayed in a room that had been recently refurbished and was very modern as was the en suite bathroom. The location is superb - lots of bars, restaurants etc. close by but the hotel is on the edge of them away from any noise. Very safe area. Also close to all attractions - we walked to Capitol, White House, Lincoln Memorial and Arlington Cemetry. I would not look for anywhere else to stay should i ever be in DC again.

I booked this with booking.com and canceled weeks ago and today I get billed for 2 nights, they say I did not cancel but I did! I called Booking.com and asked why I got charged for free cancelations and I was told that they have no record of my canceling.

This was one of those rooms that looked NOTHING like the photographs.
Whilst well located with an abundance of eating establishments within walking distance the room was SMALL with no hanging space. A bathroom that was difficult to manage.
Fortunately with plenty to do one did not need to spend much time here.

If you are thinking about this property...MOVE ON !

Incredible experience in Washington DC. It should not be permitted to open such an Hotel.
Dusty, Dirty, Noisy (for air conditioning near to the bed), little room, no desk. And, moreover, I have been in a room where the door lock, using the right force, was openable from outside.
Absolutely this is a place to avoid.

Room Tip: Avoid this Hotel
