Recent guest reviews

Stay was great..Staff was awesome!!! Any requests for the room..such as more towels or upon arrival felt the bed wasn't was attended to right away. Housekeeper came promptly and opened up a new package of sheets and went over the room again...Every day of my stay I was met with a smile and asked if all was well. The breakfast was great as well to grab on the way to work....My visit was over a week ..I was TRULY IMPRESSED .. and would use this Econo Lodge again and AGAIN!

The floor was dirty and not vacuumed. The bathroom was not clean. Table top surfaces have stains on them. Overall very dirty!! There were homeless people smoking in the corridors!

Stayed here only so I could go to DC for the inauguration and not pay $800/night with 4 night minimum. Run of the mill motel.

Stayed there mainly because Washington DC was gouging people for the inauguration. It's a good 45-minute drive from the city and in the middle of nowhere. But it was cheap.

This hotel was horrible. It was supposed to be in a certified nonsmoking room, however, when I checked in very late the first evening, I walked in to find an ashtray and a stench of chemical coverup spray that had my eyes watering all night. There were fleas in the room as evidenced by the small dog that was staying in the room two doors down. I was placed in room in the back of the hotel and was treated to nothing but the sound of cars with stereos blaring driving back and forth all night, people yelling and walking up and down. I travel a lot for school and business alone and this was the first time I was afraid to close my eyes. It was so late at night and I had to be out so early in the morning to get to school after a 5 hour drive that there was no way to find another hotel for the last night and as I would not receive a refund, I stuck it out but I will never stay there again. Their "continental breakfast" consisted of a few bagels. I stayed there so that I could eat before leaving for 9 hours of class but thank goodness there was a grocery store down the street and a working microwave in the room so I could buy food to cook. The fridge in the room barely kept anything cool so I ended up taking all of my cold food with me to school for both days and stored them in the fridge at school. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again and I will just have to save up more money to stay at a better hotel each month for the next two years so that at least I can have a decent night's sleep and not be a zombie while in classes.

This hotel just barely makes the grade for suitable accommodations. The room was extremely small and only moderately clean. The continental breakfast amounts to stale bagels or donuts, juice or coffee.
