DC Trip

The staff was cordial enough. The Continental Breakfast was okay at best. The room was fine with minor but ignorable wear and tear. Free HBO was nice though.

Horrible Service

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 3 days. They did not clean the room or replace the towels when we asked them (or when indicated by the door sign). When we asked the front staff, they said it wasnt their fault and 'its the Day Shift's fault'. Very unprofessional. Do not stay at this hotel unless you want bad service.

conference at walter washington convention center

It was in a bad and kind of unsafe area of dc. It is a 15 minute walk away from the nearest metro, and you have to walk along the freeway on a dirat road. The internet connection was bad in my room. But you get what you pay for right?

DC on a budget

If you need a roof over your head and at a good deal this place is perfect. It is not fancy or a 5-star but its close to the heart of DC.

Pretty ordinary

Nothing special. Travel with our dog. Been disappointed at a few places with M6. Tried this chain but not much better, A cut above but only a small slice. Breakfast not much - good if you enjoy doughnuts for a meal.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Metro a good value by buying reload card. Metro station about a mile walk. Not so good in rain.

Cockroaches in room

There was cockroaches in the room. The lock didn't work at first, I had to have someone come and show me that the door had to be slammed just to shut. The neighborhood is clsoe, but not neccesarily a comfortable one to walk through, and there was no place to cross the street, no walk or light, but a busy bi-way instead to cross.

Howard Johnson Express Inn Washington DC

The carpet and bathroom were not clean. It was a motel type room, right off the parking lot. The neighborhood did not seem very safe and there was construction that made it difficult to get to area restaurants. There was no pool or amenities other than a cold breakfast in a small lobby. Everything seemed dingy and dirty.

Good for the price

When I read people's review about how bad the customer service was, I totally disagreed with them. We got off at Jamaica train station and tried to get a cab around 2 AM with cold and wet weather, and we called the hotel and the front desk lady was kind enough to get us a cab. And they were easy to talk with. NYer are some rude, but that doesn't mean that you need to be rude also. When you expect people to be nice to you, then you should be nice to them as well. that's all I gotta say. Room is clean, eventhough the area was really not a place to walk in the middle of the night. I would not recommend this for family vacation. You'd rather to pay a little higher price to stay closer to city. Overall is OK
