          It's very close to many of the governmental offices. Cheaper than all the other big chains with almost the same service.

          Good hotel clean and comfortable. An hourly shuttle to The metro ( check timetable) is handy. Breakfast is OK but with limited choice. We found it to be a good hotel but note it is about a 15 minute walk to the metro if the hotels shuttle is not running. Would stay again.

        • Older travelers

          I stayed at this hotel as an economical base for my visit to Washington. The hotel is just 700 yds from Ballston Metro station, a 7 minute walk. Taxi stand is opposite the Metro ($4.75 fare Sept 2012) The hotel is in a residential / university area. Interstate 66 is just by the hotel but it is not noisey. In the room was a fridge, microwave, hairdrier, safe, desk and two queen size beds. Air con of course. The free breakfast is good but ends at 0900. Cerals, waffles, juice, coffee, pastries, fruit, toast, eggs, sausages, milk ect. Staff are helpful, free coffee is avaiable in the reception 24/7. The hotel has a shuttle bus to the Metro station which runs hourly (Not 1200, 1300 or 1400). Good shower in the room. You can eat out near to the Metro station. Ballston shopping Mall is worth a visit, food court on lower level, Macey's above.

          It was all good for the price.

          Made to feel welcome. Reasonably priced. Eco friendly re towel usage. Breakfast included. Very helpful reception staff.

          They need to upgrade the tv's. The tv in our room must have been 10 years old and the sound was terrible. If you used the exit door you had to go to the lobby to get back in which I did not like. I will not stay there again.

          big & very confort, clean room, with every thing you need.

          breakfast is served only until 09;00. not enough time for such a big hotel, no tables ....

        • Family with children

          Convenience to I-66

          Not very close to Ballston shopping or restaurants

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The staff was most helpful, courteous (sp?), happy to assist you, etc. My comments are aimed at all of the staff - front desk, breakfast area staff, room service staff, everyone that we encountered was very nice to deal with!!!! Cudo's to the staff!!

          Parking spaces are quite tight though and I would have liked a microwave to use when I needed to warm up a cup of tea or a bowl of soup. Mini fridge would be nice too!!

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Front desk clerk Abdul was welcoming and friendly. The hotel was clean, and had free parking. Great no frills room. It was exactly the room we were looking for, a place to sleep, shower and change. Served a hot breakfast that was more than toast and danish. Excellent hotel and friendly staff.
