The Brookland Inn
Ranked #31 of 35 Washington DC B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 October 2012

This is a great B&B with very spacious rooms. each suite has a living room, kitchen and separate bedroom(s). We stay here every time we go to DC to see my son at CUA. You won't find a better value anywhere. I hear people say the neighborhood can be questionable but we've never seen anything bad. It's like alot of areas in DC, don't go walking around at night alone. We're staying here again next month

Room Tip: there's no elevator but its only 3 stories

The rooms were nice but the locks were not very sturdy. There was a bathroom, bedroom, living room and kitchen. The lobby had a combination push-pad lock that had the relevant numbers worn off by repeated punch-ins. They provided in-suite food in the refrigerator but the inn is located in a questionable neighborhood and there were police sirens every five minutes that evening as I tried to sleep. Online service was great but it was hard to find the "innkeeper" to check out the next morning to head out for my interview. For a college-age, smalltown Midwestern girl, it was a nerve-wracking experience. Probably less so for those with more experience in big cities and more travels under their belt.

Just got back from my first visit to DC and had a wonderful stay! The Brookland Inn is a cute B&B just outside of the main city area. The metro stop is only about a block away, which was great for our purposes. My friend and I stayed in a one bedroom suite and were very pleasantly surprised with the room - or apartment as it seemed. The kitchen was well stocked with muffins (chocolate chip were delicious!), yogurt, oatmeal, cereal etc. This was great for the mornings! It was very nice to have a living room area separate from the bedroom. Bathroom has some water marks on the ceiling, but didn't really effect our stay. We were there for 3 nights and it felt more like home than a hotel. We came in later at night and there was a key waiting for us on our arrival. Check out was very simple as well, just signed some paperwork and left the key in the room. Neighborhood looked ok. As a girl alone, might be questionable, but I was staying with a friend so turned out fine. Overall, great experience and I would stay here again!

begins our review of the Brookland Inn. We stay here while visiting our niece who lives in the leafy Brookland neighborhood of DC. If you need a big lobby welcome, constant staff attention, a big view of the White House from the window, and an elevator and/or porter for your luggage, go somewhere else. If you want a clean, spacious place to spread out, precious privacy as you come and go, a VERY comfortable bed (in the 3rd floor 2 bedroom unit), adequate air conditioning, ample toiletries and towels, and the biggest little continental breakfast -- then come to the Brookland. The reservation is a breeze, the check-in is a little quirky, and wireless internet service is not a problem. Breakfast is apple/orange juice, coffee, teas, hot chocolate, sodas, oatmeals, cereal, milk, fruits, and reliable jumbo Costco muffins for all in your party. Your car is safe in the lot on the side of the building or if you are lucky enough to find a spot on the street out front. The Metro is nearby as is the National Shrine of Immaculate Conception. We walked to the church on 12th Street for a baptism on Sunday morning by the Yes Market, CVS, and the BCafe downstairs, which we hear has good food. This is an older apartment type building turned into a B and B with no sign out front. If you want a reasonable, roomy hideaway removed the bustle of downtown, where you can come and go like a native, and are a reasonably self-sufficient traveler/guest, then the Brookland is definitely for you.

My stay at the Brookland Inn in DC was a great experience very friendly staff, clean rooms and a nice vegan cafe to suite your taste buds. Extremely comfortable mattress and bedding accesories were clean and relaxing...came into town for buisiness although my stay was just a few days "Brookland Inn" spoiled me with their service.

Only a short train ride into the centre of DC was great as well as the free parking. The one bedroom apt was clean and comfortable and 2 adults and 1 child were able to spread all their luggage around. Breakfast suited us - light but perfectly fine. Wasn't much around the area so ate downtown before coming back - it's not a full kitchen so it's really only take-out. Overall a pleasant stay in DC.
