The room was clean, the internet was excellent and the bed was very comfortable. The price was very competitive. What else needs to be said? I've stayed here before and I'll stay here again.

Bedbugs

My brother i had a lot red spot on our skin the day after. Sleep in your car believe me it is better than scratching your self the day after. I am writing this now while i am my house from my own room and i can feel the bedbugs and will clean the bed now and all my stuff. So add some more money and have a clean place.

Unfortunate mistake, generous outcome!

Pros: The staff
Cons: The quality of the room
Location: N/A
Travelocity did not make it obvious when it came to choosing a smoking or non-smoking room. I unknowingly reserved a smoking room & after checking out the room I decided, with my allergies, I could not stay there. The hotel was booked, so they kindly called up the motel across the street & set me up with a non-smoking room there & gave me a full refund!

One of the most affordable lodging options near DC

Pros: Location and its price
Cons: Rooms, furniture, employees, breakfast room
Location: Suburban area, nxt to the highway, walgreens, CVS, MCDonalds, IHOP and other bidget restaurants.
One of the most affordable lodging options close to DC, so expect to get what you are paying for. If your budget allows you pay more and get a better motel/ hotel. This one is old, with annoyed, demotivated reception employees, room service which forgets to change your coffee and take out garbage, pre-historic TV in the room, breakfast served in old and dark conference room with very limited amount of tables. Pluses: The Price, location (close to DC if you are traveling by car), complimentary shuttle bus to the subway station

Not bad for the price.

This wasn't a terrible hotel. The girl working the desk, when we checked in was great. The biggest complaint that I have is, the shower. It was terrible. The first morning, the shower went from normal to scalding hot. Multiple times. The next morning, it was the opposite. Warm to ice cold.

Governor's House Inn

The initial staff was not very friendly. The staff during check out was great. The only problem I had was turning on the water in the tub.

The rooms were dirty and smelled like humidity

We were four in the room They only supplied us with 3 towels and when we asked for another towel I was told that they had no towels left. There was no a/c. The bathroom had no extractor Overall the room was horrible and dirty.
