Business Trip

The Hotel I mean motel was decent for the price. Nothing fancy. If u need to spend one or two nights in a place this would do. If you are looking a place ONLY to sleep this is your place. There's a couple of places to eat near the motel. By car 10m. Walking, around 30min.

Great for a Night or Two

The hotel was good it was clean, staff was friendly, cheap. The only issue I had was the heat, either it is off or you suffocate with no thermostat it just keeps running and the air was so dry. It'd be great if it was auto and shut off at a ccertain temperature, but it is either hot, dry air blowing all the time or it needs to be turned off. I would wake suffocating and turn it off until it got too cold. Besides the lack of humidity and temperature in the room it was good.

Good basic room and value

Room: Good basic and spacious room with refrigerator and microwave (a plus!). I was only staying a night, but it's nice to know you can shack up for a while to extend your stay if you want to go downtown into D.C. The commute to DC does take a little while, though, but the parking deck to the train was about ten minutes drive. Generally, the location was just perfect for the race I was running; it was more affordable than some of the downtown options, and close to some cheap shopping if I forgot something. I was pleased by the assortment of breakfast selections; oatmeal and waffle options always make me happy. Overall, a basic room with good amenities, but not in an area where there seems to be too much to do, and the place seems a little worn with age. Get your average nights' rest.

Trip to DC

They had new mattresses on the bed which was really nice. But it's a mile to the Metro and their shuttle now runs at very inconvenient times so you have to pay for a taxi or walk.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

If you walk up to the upper level of the Huntington Metro and turn left on King's Street, you can turn left on Fairhaven and it will take you down to Richmond Highway. Then turn left and the hotel is a couple of blocks. About a mile walk.

Just so-so

You don't love it and you don't hate it. Breakfast only a "make do when you want to get going with your day". Leaves you looking forward to an early lunch. Staff only "there" ...no people skills. Housekeeping on the ball and got right to a problem with our room. Location on busy street but close to Mt. Vernon and a short drive to "Old Town". We figure we got just about what we paid for and if staying several nights that helps I guess.

Great value, location and comfort!

Only negative that disappointed me was the fact that pool did not open until 4:00. Sun went behind trees at 5:20. Otherwise we had a very nice 3 nite stay with no complaints......
