I enjoyed staying here for a long stay. Staff was courteous, helped me with many different issues.
Great deal for the price. The Chinese food was great - Try the restaurant.
The shuttle service is excellent. It keeps the cost low. They drop you to the train and pick you up.
Laundry is close by.

Room Tip: Liked the ones in the back. Very quite and easy access.

We were visiting the University of Maryland for their family day, we reserved 2 rooms and to start all of the rooms windows face corridors which is very disturbing for us in particular, inside the room we had one of the rooms was ok and looks like it had been refurbished and was decent, the other one was in a very neglected state and didn't have a fridge or microwave as the other one, the carpet was scary and the beds, lets just say that when you removed the covers the sheets were all wrinkled like someone just got out of the bed and placed it over. If you most stay here bring flip tops , soap, shampoo and perhaps your own sheets. The pillows very soft and basic.
They do have continental breakfast until 10:00 am which was good enough for us. The staff is friendly and the place has indoor pool and some amenities for those looking to expend some time indoors. We weren't. Over all we could not find something else so we had to come to this place.

Room Tip: Request a room that has been refurbished recently, ask.

This is a slightly run down roadside motel in a suburb of Washington, surrounded by similar roadside motels. They charged me $200/night and I expected a nicer place for that price. There was nothing hugely wrong. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, I was able to sleep and get on with life. There was a pool and a gym and a typical motel-breakfast of factory-produced bagels, cereal, and yogurt. All these things were fine as far as roadside motels go, but again for $200 I've stayed in much nicer places. The sheets and pillow cases were old and worn, the carpets were all very old and worn, decor was 1970s style (though not actually THAT old). We had a room facing the road and the noise was terrible, with fire engines and partiers coming and going all the time. They tried to add a $1 per night charge for the in-room safe, which I thought was outrageous, and when I objected they simply removed the charge. How stupid to insult your customers like that for $1. Next time I have to go to College Park I will try somewhere else, but if you have a reservation here you'll be fine.

Room Tip: Away from the road and reception.

Had a very small issue with the room but enjoyed all aspects of my stay. Liked how they transformed an old Holiday Inn outdoor motel into an indoor hotel. I enjoyed my stay and the staff was very friendly towards me. 95% of the room was clean and comfortable. The 5% is not even worth mentioning and I am sure was addressed immediately. Will return when returning to DC/Maryland area.

Room Tip: Had an interior room by shuffle board and it was quiet enough for me to rest comfortably.

Felt very unsafe staying there. The people hanging around in the parking lot were sketchy. Front desk clerk was not friendly or pleasant. Was run down, dirty. Breakfast not on par with other Choice Hotels. Will not return.
