If your sole reason is to go the MGM this is a great place to stay. Rates at MGM are usually over $500 and this is less than 1 mile and newly refurbished. The only down fall is the location in regards to D.C. and the fact that oxon hill is very dangerous. The closest metro stop is about 10...

Paid a fortune to stay here as there were few hotels available for the Women's March weekend. The hotel was subpar. The room had damage and was quite loud. We had to call to have the room made up after being gone for hours.

I wish I had taken the negative reviews for this hotel seriously. I read them, but booked this two-night stay anyways thinking my experience would differ. Please do not make my mistake and save yourself the aggravation. We traveled to the DC area to attend the Presidential Inauguration. Initially, I was impressed with this hotel. The lobby was sleek, modern,...

Dear Jewel K Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I appreciate your valuable feedback. I apologize for the loud noise emitting from the adjacent guest room. In fact our security team member immediately responded and took remedial action. It was too late and the disturbance had already caused inconvenience. Our bed-side tables are securely mounted to...

Stayed here twice as alternative to paying MGM Casino room rates. Location is very good- just about a mile from the casino. The bedding is nice and the bath towels are amazing. A few minor complaints- 1. The shuttle only runs until midnight. On weekends, it really needs to run later for the casino patrons. 2. Parking is annoying- only...

The good - Front desk staff were great...smiles all the way around...given the proximity to MGM and Alexandria, great price...buffet was better than average but considering it is part of the room cost, quality was ok but staff are great! Room and bed were fine but shower area needs attention - rust on the ceiling - no excuse for this!...

Dear R5875DRonw Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I appreciate your valuable feedback and compliments.

Loved staying here! It was priced amazingly considering the other hotels around were soooo expensive. This one was just right! Clean room! Free shuttle! Free parking! Great bar! It's only like 1.5 from the national harbor. So getting there is easy using the shuttle or Lyft. Overall the hotel was great!

We stayed at the hotel when we had a plumbing issue. When I walked in, I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is going through a renovation, and everything has or is in the process of being renovated. The breakfast buffet was great, dinner was yummy, and we'd definitely stay again for a staycation.
