        The room was really spacious and clean.There is no many staff members there but they're generally helpful. It's good they have shuttle buses to the Metro station although I didn't use it because I had a car rented.

        Although my impression of the hotel was as clean and my room was very clean,when I used their complimentary coffee machine in the lobby, I found a small fly swimming in my cup! One lady at the reception who was present on the night I arrived, she needs to be friendly and at least learn to smile. Although my stay was for 3 nights, I was able the catch breakfast there only on the day I was leaving. It was very poor. I think the price is a bit high for the location.

        Good accomodations, reasonable rate, pleasant, helpful staff.

        Room refridgerator could have been colder.

        It was easy to find, clean, had nice amenities. It was 6 mins. from Washington's Mount Vernon. Restaurants were nearby.

        There was some dust behind the night stand. I would not have noticed it -- my neighbor did.

      • Single

        The room had everything: Fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tv, king size bed, big chair with foot stool, desk, and safe and free breakfast. What more could you want? Staff was very pleasant. The hotel and room were very clean.

        If I had anything to recommend it would be the manager to plan staffing in the breakfast room based on occupancy. One person can't keep up the food and cleaning tables etc after a room full of teens in the same way they can keep up after a few well mannered adults. They tried hard and were in constant motion. Over six days the staff didn't change but the number of people changed dramatically.

        Hotel staff greeted us daily as we walked in the door. Very helpful when asking for directions and willing to give suggestions of things to do and places to eat. Have a shuttle service that will take you to the Metro, about 6 miles away...nice service.

        The person that took care of the breakfast daily was not as pleasant. She was constantly not paying attention to the food and was doing personal things and chatting with the other employees, who came in to grab a quick bite, instead of watching the food. Many customers would have to ask her to make more eggs and refill the milk container for cereal. Didn't seem like she wanted to be there.

        Bed size is large and confortable. Room have iron and refrigerator free of charge

        A car is very recommended or nearly a necessity. Rooms do not have light in the roof. Air-conditioner is noisly.

        We stayed at the Western Mount Vernon to go to Washington D.C. With a car it was close enough and We saved a lot of money compared to a hotel that would have been located in W.D.C. The room was clean and had a large bathroom.. I had no complaints at all!

        It was clean and newly renovated. It was close to my destination. It had a nice variety of breakfast choices.

        Helpful and and very friendly staff!

        The complete breakfast was available only 1-1.5 hour :(

        The staff was very nice and

        We only got shampoo one day during our three day stay. It was never replenished. The lighting is very poor in the room...we couldn't read our tourist information/maps and there are no comfortable chairs to read in. The lobby was well lit and had comfortable furniture but when we got in late I wanted to work on the next day's schedule in the room but couldn't because of the poor light.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        I'd read the reviews and based my booking on them. They did not lie. This was a great place to stay. The staff was wonderful, and the room immaculate and very nicely furnished. Our beds were so comfortable that I slept better than I normally do in a hotel room. I was in the area to look for a place to live, and because it is right on Rt. 1, I had great access to the freeway and different parkways. I was more than pleased with my stay here.

      • Older travelers
        4.4

        Fresh bread at breakfast

        The hotel was practically empty and I still ended up paying 50% more than I am used to for a basic budget hotel. It would have been a much better value at 70-80 $ not the $135 I paid.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Able to drive to metro station and park the car sagely and quickly (free on weekends) and get from there to downtown dc in 30 minutes.
