My first impression of the motel was not the best. It is an older motel right in the middle of your tall, fancier hotels. I was not sure what I had gotten myself into, being a female who was traveling alone. The gentleman at the front desk reassured me that it was safe to stay. The building is very old and the rooms are dated, but very clean. If you want a place to stay close to D.C. and Reagan airport, that is inexpensive and has friendly staff, take the chance.
"Good on its way to being great. Exceptional value!"
This hotel is an excellent value. It is very close to DC. We had two rooms, both of which were modern, well appointed and clean. There are renovations being done that make getting in and out of the lobby difficult but once checked in we moved from the parking garage to our rooms with ease. They waived the parking fees as a courtesy due to the contruction going on which I think is a great gesture. The construction times were not a problem to us. The only thing that was a small nuisance was the AC unit in one room was a bit loud and blows strong even when set on low. You can walk to food within minutes. We found a great place called Mezeh (http://www.mezeh.com/) that's like the Chipotle of Mediterranean food a block away. I highly recommend this hotel and will be staying there again.
After travelling to much nicer hotels in Las Vegas and various places around the globe, it's harder to be impressed by these "regular" 4-star hotels. I would say that this hotel is probably on the lower-end of a 4-star hotel. It does qualify for 4-stars, as it is definitely better than a 3-star hotel, but the rooms could have been a bit larger and the overall amenities of the hotel could have been better. The gym was very small and did not have much equipment. Nonetheless, I still WOULD recommend this hotel to a friend. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet and clean. One of the selling points about this hotel is that it is in Crystal City and walking distance to the shops & subway station.
