5 out of 5
This property was excellent for the price and location. The room was exceptionally clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is a short walk to the Metro which easily takes you to the National Mall with no transfers. I will definitely stay there again.

Basic, but improving

Pros: Location
Cons: The morning food could be fresher.
Location: This is near an area that used to be known as Little Saigon. The Vietnamese have moved on, but there are still a variety of good restaurants here.
I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 20 years, partly for personal reasons, but also because it is reliably inexpensive, and on the Metro line. The bathrooms have been dramatically upgraded in recent years.
