Holiday inn Washington central/white house

We found a mouse in one of our rooms on 8/19. After speaking with management they have agreed not to charge us for our remaining nights. They told us we needed to contact you for a refund. Please let me know what I need to do. Thanks, Diane Crawford

Family Vacation

Hotel was dirty, pool closed early 2 nights and was closed on another. Rooftop view from internet was not really how it was. Worst hotel I have stayed at. Not what I expected from a Holiday Inn.

Mall was further away than it looks. May want to take a cab, only 10 dollars from hotel, well worth the money.

Miss placed or theft from hotel room.

I was very displeased after finding a book was taken from my room. Hotel staff did not offer to replace this. A couple of other personal items where also taken. The room they put me in was behind the elevator and was so small I felt like I was in a childs bedroom. Avoid room 610. Better yet avoid this hotel.

Pleasure trip

Room no 510 in we checked was full of rats . Even moving on bed . When we complained they refund one day charges and for one night shifted to other room. So beware of rats when you go there. Bad experience .

Okay, but will not stay there again.

THE ROOM AND BATHROOM ARE VERY SMALL. THEY ALSO GAVE US A ROOM WITH THE WORST VIEW EVER. BREAKFAST WAS GOOD BUT PRICY. THE HOTEL HAVE SELF PARKING GARAGE BUT COSTS $31.00 PER DAY.

Ok

Great location, building is in need of renovations, elevators small and slow, check in process was a bit confusing...I guess reserving 2 rooms was a first for the staff. I will not recommend this hotel to a friend because there are much better hotels in the same immediate area for a few dollars more a night, but if you are just looking for a place to crash after a fun night at the near bars and don't care much about appearances, then this may be for you.

Do not eat at the Hotel's Park Cafe---very unfreindly,probably run by a relative of the guy standıng/leaning at the Conciarge desk!Go to the Restaurant on the other corner to the Hotel.Very freindly and cheaper.
