I was confused by the varying reviews of this hotel, but decided to take a chance because of the great rate. The truth is there are good and bad things and you have to decide if it is worth the $40 you will save staying here vs. somewhere else. So here is the skinny:
1 - I can't say much about the neighborhood, we did not look around, but it is right off the interstate which is nice.
2 - the hallways are smoky, but our room was not.
3 - the elevator is slow and small. The luggage cart barely fits into the elevator with one person, so the rest of our family had to wait to ride when loading/unloading.
4 - the room and bathroom were new and clean. The TV was flat screen, plenty of channels, wifi worked great. Iron, hair dryer, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, toiletries. Beds were comfortable.
3 - there was plenty of warm water for a shower, but it varied from slightly too hot to slightly cool the whole time you take a shower.
4 - the hotel either has heat or ac, not both, so when you go during winter (we went in March), but it is a warm day, you will have no ac. The windows cracked slightly, so at night, which was the only time we were there, we were able to cool the room off after a little while. The hotel found us a fan which also helped a lot.
5 - the shuttle service was great, van was brand new and luxurious, driver extremely nice and helpful
6 - breakfast was your regular free type breakfast, no complaints except they start cleaning up at 9:30, so don't plan on sleeping in!
Bottom line, after a long day walking DC I'd personally rather pay a little more to come back to a hotel where I can completely relax and not have to worry about any of these things.
