Just simple little clean motel, nice beds, nice bathrooms. From what we could tell, safe area lots of people walking around(appeared to be mostly business type individuals). Literally 5 minute walk to metro, 15 minutes to smithsonian station. Nice little complimentary breakfast, doughnuts, bagels, fresh fruits, hot chocolate, coffee, oj for a quick bite before heading to dc, it was perfect for my family. Staff very friendly. This would be first choice when visiting the area again. Price well worth it.
