There is a Metro station a short walk away although I walked to the centre of Washington every day. The room was comfortable and clean. The best thing about staying here was Jack who ran the guest house. He made everyone welcome introducing other guests to one another. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice also there were always cookies left out for guests to eat. Although there were no coffee or tea in the room the kitchen was always available to use and there was a cold and hot water dispenser in the lobby.
