Yes the building is old, but our room was updated, (except for old tile in the bathroom which was fine), and very clean. The room contains everything you could need: refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and hair dryer. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. The buffet breakfast was good; the usual hotel buffet breakfast. My one very big... More

This was a family vacation trip to tour the sites in Washington. We had never stayed at a Best Western. The decision was made based on reviews I read on Trip Advisor. It's a little weather worn, but it was very clean and room was nice. The breakfast was good and Gloria made sure all needs were met. I drank... More

Our first stay at this Best Western. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice view of the pool area from our room. Breakfast was excellent (except they had run out of bacon!). Will definitely stay here again given the opportunity. Thank you!

We had a great stay at this hotel. We were able to check in early which was a plus because we were spending the day in DC. Front desk were very friendly, knowledgeable and made sure we were happy. Room was good. Beds comfortable. The next evening we took kids to the pool which was nice. There was a lifeguard... More

Nothing spectacular with this hotel. Rooms are pretty old and smelly. If you have plans to sleep and leave early morning (after big and great breakfast) is a good idea to stay here. If you plan to enjoy the facilities, you are expecting too much.

Rooms were clean, breakfast was good. Pool was average and always had a lifeguard on duty. Location is good, near multiple eateries (Bombay Bistro down the street has good Indian food), and the staff was very helpful.

First, all of the staff we encountered were great. From check in to check out they were eager to please. The American breakfast is great. Way above and beyond of any other continental breakfast. A great assortment of choices. Gloria that ran the breakfast room was fantastic. She responded to any request promptly and went above and beyond to make... More

This hotel had doors opening directly to an outside walkway, so that is important to note. I was nervous our first night about security and safety, but that was unwarranted. We had zero issues. We had a first floor room on the corner, so you could hear people talking and going up and down stairs. A little annoying but nothing... More

I needed to stay at a hotel relatively close to Inova Hospital where my daughter was having breast cancer surgery, so I selected this hotel which was about 13 minutes away ( not during rush hours).

The hotel and our room were very dated and musty. There is not enough lighting in the stairwell going to the second floor. Maybe they have some updated rooms, because the photos shown here look nothing like our room did. The hot items on the breakfast were not done well. Feel theynwould do better by just offering a continental breakfast... More

Dear Juli182, The pictures on-line were of our guest rooms, but without our new carpeting, which is much darker that the one shown in the pictures. The professionally taken photographs show fully lit guest rooms with in some cases the drapes open. Everything else in the rooms are as displayed in the photos. We are currently in the midst of...
