"Great location near DCA. Our room had a bad odor, so the hotel clerk apologized and gave us another room. There was hair in the bed in that room, so we were given a 3rd room, and it was satisfactory. We got a free breakfast for our trouble, and it was great. All the employees were cordial and helpful. I wasn't aware of the $10 extra person charge; when I complained, the hotel graciously charged only the basic rate. I'd stay here again.2015-12-02"
"I wasn't happy that I was given a handicap room, which I didn't request. The room was large and had a kitchenette. No carpeting. Everything was clean. The bathroom wasn't great. The hotel clerk was pleasant, and there was a large grassy area where I could walk my dog. The area wasn't the best, though, and there was a homeless person sleeping on the hotel grounds. Breakfast was just coffee and a muffin, but there were lots of restaurants within walking distance. If you're a woman traveling alone, you might not be comfortable with the area.2022-06-28"

"The hotel had an impersonal feel, though the staff was nice when we asked questions. The TV didn't work properly, but we didn't report it. Nice place, but we're elderly and prefer a personal touch.2016-05-20"
"We requested a ground floor room but got a 2nd floor room that was was a long walk from the office. Our room was smoke-free, but it reeked of cigarettes and marijuana. No elevator. The hotel didn't have an airport shuttle. Don't stay here.2022-05-21"
"The hotel clerk didn't inform me about the location of the ice and vending machines.2019-06-30"

"The hotel was being renovated during our stay. The mattress was uncomfortable, and the chair was stained. The toilet didn't flush properly, and the water from the faucet was discolored. We were moved to another room, but it smelled like smoke. We moved to yet another room; the mattress was more comfortable, but the room had plumbing issues, too. The hotel clerks were cheerful, but the staff wasn't particularly informative.2018-03-01"

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.
