Positive Reviews

Affordable location

With a location so close to Washington DC, many visitors felt the room price was very economical. You can also enjoy breakfast on the house, and a friendly staff compliment to assist in any way they can. All in all guests felt this location provided good value for money.

Hats off to house-keeping

Although the rooms are not new, guests found the house-keeping staff to be pleasant, kind and most of all, hard working. Their efforts to keep the rooms dust-free and well stocked with all the conveniences like shampoos and soap were appreciated by all.

Easy access to public transportation

The Metro redline train station is within an easy walk from the hotel, and if you are visiting Washington DC , then Bethesda is connected by Metro to the central DC area. The hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the Bethesda metro station, which makes getting around quite effortless.

Negative Reviews

Smelly rooms turn guests away

Several visitors were not pleased with the stale aroma of the rooms once they walked through the doors. Damp carpets and mouldy ceilings caused quite a number of guests to find alternative accommodation.

Upgrade is needed

Concerns for the building itself were raised by many travellers who felt the structure needed some serious attention. The building seems to be in disrepair and could do with an upgrade.

No issues reported.

So far, no recent negative opinion has been expressed by guests about this hotel.
