If you book a room here and decide to go cheap, be prepared to have an average room. My womdow was next to the ggarbage alleyway. Walls are thin so be prepared for a little noise, barley any sunlight could reach the room. If you book your hotel here, make sure you choose a good room! $$$

I arrived a half hour after check in and still had to wait 30 minutes for my room to be ready. The room itself was small. However, I expected this based on the reviews I had read. The towels in my room were not clean and the toilet was wobbly. When I went to have a cup of coffee/tea it was empty everytime.

The staff were exceptional (kind, helpful, courteous,knowledgeable). Not fair to rate the inn at this time they were under construction but the completed sections were very nice. It would be nice to have a place to microwave foods.

I liked the outside of the hotel. The inside had been newly remodeled but had been done poorly. The staff was not friendly. Poor security as they kept the front door open and no one at the front desk.

The property is in an older building that blends right into the neighborhood architecture and has the feel of a boutique hotel. The whole property seems to be undergoing a renovation, and my room seems to be one of the ones that had been renovated (it was also on the top floor at the very end of the hall). Because of the renovation, there’s no proper check in desk, just a small table. And there were mattresses lining the hall on my floor and the two floors (half a flight up or half a flight down) to get to the elevator (fellow travelers keep in mind you will have to carry luggage up or down a few steps). The room, while recently re-done and clear was also very small and lacks a closet or dresser drawers (just a rack for hanging items). It’s probably best suited for the person doing some casual traveling (I had suits with me) who will not spend much time in the room. Any staff interaction I had, I should add, was very cordial, friendly, and polite.

Not a bad hotel for the price. Further from DuPont Circle than expected. Room was very very small. Bathroom was small. Shower water pressure is not great. Water was always either freezing or scalding. Hotel staff was incredibly nice. Neighborhood was nice.
