"The hotel was clean and centrally located. Just 15 minutes from Dulles and good restaurants. The front desk clerk went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable during a sad and emotional time for us. She was kind, sympathetic, and took care of everything. 2020-09-21"

"We had a lovely, well-appointed room, and the thick hall carpet made everything nice and quiet. We were disappointed that breakfast wasn't included, but still recommend this hotel.2016-03-03"
"Nice hotel room, but it could've been cleaner, as could the hallways. Pleasant check-in clerk. The grab and go breakfast worked well for us. You could probably find a better place for the same price.2015-05-18"

"The motel was horrible, and the room was extremely dirty. The fridge and microwave were filthy. When I pulled back the blankets, a roach ran across the bed. I killed it and took it to the front desk, and the clerk seemed as horrified as I was. There was toothpaste splatter on the mirror and sink faucet, urine on the toilet, and hair in the shower. There was also mold on the ceiling above the shower. No other rooms were available, and we weren't offered compensation. I would never recommend this place to anyone.2020-01-08"
"Close to Fairfax Hospital. The motel room had a kitchen, but no dishes or other supplies. Other than that, it was fine. 2018-02-16"
"I absolutely loved this hotel. It was just steps from an organic market, pastry shop, stores, restaurants, and a theater. Although renovations were underway, everything was clean, modern, and beautiful. Amazing mattress and bed linens. The staff was extremely helpful and even told me how I could order the same linens for my home. Our room came with books, robes, slippers, caramels, and 2 bottles of water. 2022-04-18"

"The WiFi was down the entire night I stayed; when I complained I was offered $20 off my bill or a free breakfast. I never got a call from the manager as expected. The parking garage was being painted, so it was poorly marked and smelled horrible. I wouldn't stay here again.2019-08-19"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
