Staff was great. Facility was average. Big complaint: tv did not work nor the computer in the lobby. The lack of tv was very difficult for my 6 year old. I was looking forward to getting some work done on the computer, which I find easier than the phone.

My husband and I booked a one night stay (paid in full prior to arrival) at the Embassy Inn through Travelocity based on its great location. After a 5 hour drive we arrived at the Embassy Inn, found a parking garage down the street and paid $50 for overnight and the following days parking. It was around 7:30 pm so...

This place is a serious dump. Staff is super rude and not concerned about providing good service. Rooms are tiny and minimal. Worth paying more to stay somewhere else. Lesson learned. Can't imagine staying here again unless I was desperate.

Embassy Inn is: clean, quiet & in a good location. It is quite spartan with no frills. I checked in late in the evening, the night staff was not too friendly or helpful with parking or wifi info. The free wifi is VERY intermittent and will frustrate you if you are trying to stream anything. I mentioned this to the...

Assumed that Washington DC is a terrible city for drivers, the location of this hotel is perfect. Yes, the rooms are very small but yet comfortable and the staff could be a little nicer. Please, please, watch out where you park!

so loved the embassy inn, that if anytime I go to Washington DC again, it will be my 1st choice of places to stay. It felt like an cheaper version of a hotel, which included breakfast (cereal, pasties, orange juice toast & chance to make a hot drink) & free wifi

This is a cute little b&b. It is the most inexpensive inn I could find in the area and I really liked it. It's older but everything worked. It was very clean. The staff was friendly. The location is awesome! This is the place to stay if you want to be in a great area but don't want to spend...

Stayed here for about USD130 a night, the best price I could get for this location and this quality.
