"The hotel staff was friendly.2016-09-15"
"I had a decent hotel stay. The room was well-kept and always clean when I returned, even when I told housekeeping that I didn't want it serviced. I wasn't happy about my wishes not being respected.2016-07-31"
"Good location, but the motel was noisy and the room had mice. Stay someplace better.2016-05-01"
"Not a very safe area, and other guests were noisy. There was a gap around our room door, so we had to stuff towels under it to keep out bugs and cold air. The room had roaches. We requested a fridge in our room for medication, but never got one. No ironing board, either. The microwave sparked and smoked. The TV had exposed wires and no remote control. No water pressure in the shower. Don't stay at this motel.2016-03-29"
"My motel room wasn't the best. The fridge door wouldn't close, and there was a problem with the water. Don't stay here.2015-08-30"
"I've stayed all over America, and this was the worst motel I've stayed in. The 1st room had stagnant water under the bathtub from a leak. The TV buttons didn't work, and the WiFi signal didn't reach the room. The 2nd room had cigarette burns on the bedding and around the room. My guitar amp went missing from my room. Don't stay here.2019-10-21"
"This was without a doubt the worst motel I've ever stayed in. No remote control for the TV, and the TV buttons didn't work. There was only one working electrical outlet in the entire room. No towels or shower curtain when I arrived. I don't recommend staying here.2016-10-31"
"The room layout was awkward, and the TV was poorly positioned. Good location, but a little scary walking to restaurants.2022-04-02"

"Nice hotel, but there was no continental breakfast.2015-10-27"
"Convenient to Medstar. My vehicle was too wide for the hotel parking garage. Not a safe area for walking.2021-12-05"
"The hotel clerk and her assistant were helpful, pleasant, and went out of their way to help us. They provided great restaurant recommendations. Short walk to the King Street Oyster Bar. We got our requested wake-up call and they made sure a cab got us to the MedStar Medical Center by 7 AM. The pool wasn't open, and the valet-only parking was expensive.2021-07-09"
"I was not happy about having to use the valet parking service, and wasn't able to access my vehicle when I wanted to, even just to retrieve something I'd forgotten. I always had to wait for the valet to get my car and bring it to me. Don't stay at this hotel if you want to park yourself.2020-02-02"
"Not a good neighborhood; there were a lot of empty, run-down buildings in the area, making walking a bit scary. The hotel room was nice and clean. The front desk clerks were all young and more interested in conversing than dealing with guests; I didn't feel my stay was of any value to them. Find another place to stay.2019-04-24"
"Close to the Metro, so I didn't need to take a cab from the Reagan Airport to the hotel. Good rates. The room was clean and modern. Friendly staff and nice breakfast. I'd definitely stay again.2015-11-15"
"The hotel room looked nice, but one of the beds had stained bedsheets.2019-02-16"

"The hotel room was nice, neat, and smelled clean. Easy check-in and checkout. I enjoyed my stay.2016-01-04"
"There appeared to be people living at the hotel. The front desk clerks were disorganized and unhelpful. Some remodeling was underway, and I saw workers sitting in the hallway with their tools while they waited for someone to bring a key card. Don't stay here.2015-11-11"
"The hotel was well-maintained and had excellent employees. Great place.2015-09-08"

"The hotel looked shabby, but the front desk clerks were nice and helpful.2016-05-23"
"The hotel clerks barely spoke to us and made us feel unwelcome. Our room was in the front of the building, and we heard a lot of traffic noise. The pillows left a lot to be desired. At least the bathroom was clean. Stay somewhere else.2016-05-22"
"We loved this hotel. The atmosphere was nice, and the room was super clean and organized. Well-stocked with towels and coffee. Highly recommend.2015-05-27"
"Not such a good hotel stay. Someone's car horn went off intermittently from 5 AM until 7:45 AM the 1st morning. Later that night, someone's dog was barking for what seemed like hours. Bring ear muffs and some sleeping pills.2021-06-20"
"I stayed in a small, reasonably priced suite. The hotel clerk was helpful and responded well to our needs. The option of a hot breakfast in the dining room was nice, and the staff adhered to Covid safety measures. I highly recommend staying here.2020-11-24"

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.
