Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Likes - Location was good - Glebe Area is good. Not too far from byward, etc. Check in was good and easy. Staff were friendly. Nice to have buffet breakfast included with variety, free water bottles included, take as much as you want. Room size was great with family - we had the upgraded suite with kitchen, living room, dining room which was fantastic for us. Computer in the room. Parking lot is right next door to the hotel. Dislikes - outdated hotel...seems like more like a converted university residence than a business hotel. Didn’t seem overly clean. Bathroom was dated. From the other reviews that we saw it seemed like it was a 4 star hotel. I’d probably say it’s a 3 out of 5 star hotel but if you need the space for family it’s perfect.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was bland and average. The accommodations small but clean- biggest let down was after a very long day looked forward to relaxing in front of one of the TWO TVs to relax and NEITHER worked. When called front desk, was told a maintenance man would come to our room in about 15 minutes because he was busy. At 10:30 at night? No thanks. Reservation was made well in advance, any tv issues should have been resolved before our arrival. $20 to park on top of a not exactly economy priced room. Never again.
