I started out liking the Townplace. It's close to Andrews AFB where I was on TDY for 60 days, the room was ok, the bed was ok and the staff was ok.
Then, my first morning, trying to sleep was impossible. I didn't get to the hotel until 2am and I was trying to get some sleep. There was landscaping going on that woke me up at 7am and the upstairs people were stomping around. I wasn't too upset at this point though...The next day, I came home from Andrews AFB and found the first one, a centipede! I was like "Gross! but I can live with it." But then I started looking at my walls. ***THIS IS NOT AN EXAGGERATION*** I found NINE CREEPY CRAWLY CENTIPEDES within LESS than 10 minutes!!!! I was SOOOOOOOOO freaked out because I don't like bugs. I couldn't stop looking for them because I knew I would find another one! My skin was crawling!! I could not wait to get out of there. I called the front desk to tell them about it and they said, "There is a lot of centipedes in this area." They said they would send a maintenance guy out tomorrow to check it out. I couldn't sleep that night! YUCK! The internet SUCKS too. It kept disconnecting when I tried to watch a movie on Netflix.
This hotel is close to Andrews AFB but is so not worth it. There is absolutely nothing to do around there. There is no shuttle service and the room is nothing compared to the hotel I moved to. I moved to Residence Inn on Duke Street in Alexandria, VA. There is a 15min commute to Andrews AFB but soooo worth it. There is so much to do there and NO centipedes!!! You walk out of the hotel and you are right downtown and there is a shuttle to the Metro service. It is within the per diem price offered for the AF with the exception of parking. My buddy hooked me up with a cheaper parking fee of $5/day. The room is bigger and a lot nicer with a bigger TV. If you are only coming for a couple days, the Townplace is "livable" with the exception of bugs but if you are going to be here longer, don't stay here!
