"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"
"Clean room and nice hotel lobby. There were restaurants nearby. However, we got incorrect directions and advice from the front desk clerks. Good experience overall.2018-06-06"

"I had a pleasant stay at this hotel. The location was great, with easy access to major highways.2019-11-30"
"The hotel was safe and conveniently located, and so close to the mall. The room had everything I could want, including a kitchenette, dishes, silverware, and wine glasses. The bed was soft and comfortable, and the bathroom was adequate. I liked having the sink and vanity separate from the main bathroom. The staff was so accommodating and cheerful, and cookies were available in the evening. No swimming pool. The free breakfast buffet was the usual fare. Indoor, lighted parking was available. We had a wonderful stay and will book here again.2019-07-05"

"I had a positive stay in every way. The room was clean and well-appointed. The employees were always pleasant and informative, and the housekeepers made sure our needs were met. The restaurant food was excellent and reasonably priced. Just be aware that the hotel sits back from the road, so the entrance is easy to miss. You can't go wrong here.2018-03-01"

"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 didn't receive the amenities in the package I reserved until I called and requested them. The room was comfortable but tired, and 2 lamps didn't work. I called the hotel clerk twice about it, but they were never fixed. Poor service; you may want to stay elsewhere.2016-01-18"
"Great location; I could walk to Walmart, restaurants, the Metro station, and wooded walking paths. Don't expect luxury, but the room was spacious. The hotel was like a garden apartment complex. There was a nice courtyard area for dogs. There were some negatives, though. The exterior was run-down, and there was trash and cigarette butts around. Smoke alarms went off at all hours, which was disturbing. There was always dirty water on the sidewalk outside the front entrance.2021-09-29"

"Accessible to many amenities, and nestled in a private townhouse neighborhood. The hotel was clean, quiet, and cozy, and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was a dog-walking area and patio with a fire pit. I felt safe staying here alone.2021-01-05"
"A quiet hotel nestled in the midst of all the activity. The room was quiet and clean. The staff was helpful and accommodated my request for a 1st floor room since I'm disabled and was with my dog. Great cleaning staff, too. 2020-11-25"

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.
