Hotel was a mess. Our room was on first floor directly across from breakfast room

This hotel is being renovated, so there is no fitness room, the areas and hallways are a mess, and the building smells of must and dust. The breakfast room was almost unsanitary. The folks at the desk were very nice and I think everyone was doing their best to put up with conditions. I would have asked for a refund, but there was no time and hotel rooms were scarce for some reason. This hotel should be shut down during such a sizable upgrade.

Awesome awesome Awesome! !!we will definitely return to this facility again.

The hotel was ok Just old and in need of renovation s the people were great but the carpet was old. We got a suite because we had a small dog we actually only stayed there because they allowed dogs The value was good for the price

Fire alarm went off several times one night. Breakfast wasn't ready until 7am most mornings. Juice from dispenser was room temperature. Nothing worse than warm oj. Hotel put erroneous charges on my account. I asked to speak to a manager after front desk didn't know what the charges were. They stated managers were in a meeting and would stop by my room after. I remained in my room for 6 hours after. Manager never showed.

Room was very nice. Refurbished since I last stayed there 3 years ago. Very nice, clean, & comfortable bed. Great value on this room - on par with more expensive hotels.

location isn't great due to the traffic and inability to turn left out of lot. Staff are all terrific.

This hotel is located in a good spot. Not too far from the interstates. The morning breakfast daily was good. You can make your own waffles.

The staff members of this hotel are polite and courteous.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. I like the staff on duty too.

We had a great week long stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating on all shifts and all positions from cleaning crew to management.

I have enjoyed staying at this location while visiting my friends who live in College Park, MD. Great location right off many major highways and clean/affordable rooms at a quiet location that goes with kind and professional staff who readily accommodated all our needs without any complaints. Would totally visit again.

Beds clean but not that comfortable. Dresser was broken. Bath had basic amenities. Raesonably close to UMD. Breakfast ok.

Very friendly and helpful staffs, convenient location

From check in to check out the entire staff was incredibly helpful and professional.

Used this hotel for an overnight while traveling. Convenient enough to the Washington Beltway (about 1.5 miles from exit). Rooms on the back of the hotel are quiet with NO road noise from the busy street out front. Bed was comfortable and room was clean, though it is obvious this in not a new facility; some minor repairs (mostly cosmetic) would be a good project for the facility to undertake. Adequate parking, and check in was smooth and quick. It seems very close to the University (not my destination, so i did not check) and would be a good location to use for visits to the campus. Considering the rates all around Washington DC, the price for this room seemed appropriate for locale.

Overall, we were pleased with our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the shuttle was convenient. The only thing was the condition of the bathroom (specifically the door) was not the best. Overall, would recommend.

Comfortable bed. Not many channels on TV, but not a problem since I was out all the time. Continental breakfast had waffles! However, the kitchen had a bit of an ant issue.

The hotel is relatively close to College Park and the U of Maryland campus. You can reach them in 20 min by walk along Baltimore Ave. It's better to have a car or to use the shuttle bus; unfortunately it's not available all the time. Room was clean and relatively large. Bathroom was clean. Good buffet breakfast.

The hotel was just not impressive and not very clean. It was dated and not super clean. There was a lingering smoke smell in our room and the coffee pot was broken. We had to ask for a clean blanket because ours had hair on it.
