The court yard.
Lack of pool.
Location, easy walking distance to downtown Bethesda and DC metro is the best this hotel has to offer.
Overpriced and disappointing overall. Old furniture and carpets; photos showed a little kitchenette corner in the room with a sink, counter space and a little cabinet. Don't know what the photo was showing but it was not what our room looked like; all we had was a small fridge and they brought in a small microwave after we asked about the different room we thought we were booking; elevator didn't wok half of the time we were there; rusty hinges in the bathroom, no exhaust fan; terrible breakfast - watery OJ and coffee, thin waffle mix; pool was closed most of the time we stayed as one of the windows overlooking the pool got broken (why?) soon after we entered our room and glass got into the pool; very tight and few parking spaces@$15 per night. Will not return.
Elevator was not working for two days in a row. We had a room at the 5th floor, no one offer to help us with the luggage when we had to leave. They have limited parking. If you don't find a spot, you have to park at the public parking lot. They offer to pay from 7 am to 10 am only. This is not they way they advertise on the web. Very annoying Swimming pool was out of order Breakfast is very limited (is what do you expect for a much cheaper hotel). The orange juice... well it was water with some orange colour. Absolutely overpriced for what we got.
Close to NIH and Bethesda downtown Staffs are friendly and courteous Less expensive
Made my reservation through booking and got a confirmation email only to find out that our room was never available. This is the second time this has happened.
It wasn't too far from the metro, about a six block walk.
The rooms were very small. Not a lot of parking right by the hotel.
This hotel is very close to the nih. We actually walked to the nih from the hotel. Parking at the hotel was very resonable. The building is older but the room was clean.
Skip the breakfast. It is not good. It is like the complimentary breakfasts at chain hotels but worse.
Very good Hotel.
Little run-down things, such as a torn curtain and mold in shower. It is too bad because otherwise it was ok.
best spent money! cheap, but breakfast included! swimming pool available! perfect!
almost everything except the location
location, very far from metro/subway
It was close to the Medical Centre
The room was not too clean and did not smell nice. Very run down
The positive element of this hotel was the value. It would be difficult to beat this price in June and July for Bethesda. Limited free parking a plus. Great location to metro and Bethesda restaurants including Guapo's Mexican Restaurant, NIH, USUHS, Naval Hospital, Walter Reed
The ventilation system is outdated and noisy. The rooms are small and modest (but I must say was clean). The continental breakfast was very limited and not of good quality. Staff transported VERY smelly trash bin on elevator with hotel guests on board rather than waiting until elevator was empty.
It was quiet
Pool area was not kept clean
Some of the staff are very helpful specially the lean guy with the stylish long front hair and the other tall gentleman with french beard.
The rooms need to be renovated completely, the carpets are worn out and they literally stink. There is no proper ventilation and also the AC ducts keep making these annoying sounds that can scare a person with a heart ailment. The breakfast menu option never changes, it needs to be changed at least on weekly basis.
Breakfast was poor if you could improve on it
The front desk staff members were very courteous and helpful.
The narrow of the room, the poor cleaning, the bad functioning of the elevator and the poor breakfast.
There were bed bugs in my bed.
Close to NIH where family member was recieving treatment.
The location was good
Very small room and bed for my family and i.
Close to where I was visiting. Staff was friendly, cooperative.
2 different sets of stairs to the room (no elevator) in the annex where our room was located. A little noisy at night from the restaurant below. Limited parking. I had to park in the public garage after the 1st night.
Good price, good location, many interesting restaurants near by. Good breakfast included, at least better than La Quinta for example. Nothing was really exceptional about the hotel.
Except for the small and quite busy breakfast room, no concerns. There is actually sufficient room, but the staff needs to open the other dining areas more quickly.
Breakfast was outstanding. Staff was helpful.
Close to good restaurants of every kind Clean Reasonably comfortable given the size Gracious staff
Small room Wanted a glass (not the paper cup in the room) and couldn't get one. Insufficient parking when hotel is full, but I lucked out. Some guests have to park across the street in a lot that requires you to leave by 7AM OR arrangements can be made to have someone feed the meter until 10AM. Breakfast is only served until 9:30AM. Didn't make it down in time.
