For REAL. Motel staff cleaned up the room very well. There was no blood. She put a plastic bag over her head with a tube to a HELIUM tank. Fairfax County Police found her....NOOO she was not floating around the room, but I think she all blue. Undisclosed room number.

Room Tip: Good place to cash in your chips!

I called a month before our vacation to make a reservation, I was told in very broken English, by an older gentleman. No reservations. A younger man got on the phone and in a very strong accent asked was I coming tonight. I said no in a month. He said call the day before. I asked how much for 7 days, since we were coming to DC. He said $505.05 including tax. I said will you take my name and credit card info. He said what's your name, I said Jason, he said ok got it. I said, do you want my last name, he said no and no cc info. I looked online for a backup plan. We went on the first part of our vacation, and then called the day before to make sure they had a room. The guy who answered was the younger guy, and said yes Mr Jason, I have your room.

We got there, I paid. And I was pleasantly surprised. Not the Hilton, or the Ritz, but not bad either. Yes I knew that it was going to be older and a bit out dated, but I was thinking maybe a little scary. Nope! I never once felt scared. The paid on the door was peeling, but so what.

The pillows were flat, but lots are now days. The a/c was great. There was a fridge and microwave. Lots of hot water with good water pressure! Never once did the four of us run out of hot water. The beds are a little old, but not horrible. The towels weren't big and fluffy, but they dried us off.

The only downside is there was no coffee. Not in the room or in the lobby, but there was a McDonald's, just down the road, and a Krispy Kreme. So we went there.

This motel is super close to the Huntington Metro station, so you can just ride the metro into DC every day!

Over all I think this is a great little motel, and we would stay there again.

Stayed: July 2015, travelled with family

This is a very basic budget motel. It wasn't very nice but if you can't afford the higher priced motels in the area, this one is tolerable. No hand towel was provided nor a single hanger; how difficult would it be to buy some wire hangers for your guests? There were ants in the bathroom. It seems that appearances don't matter much to the owners; the paint is peeling and the furniture is really old. The soap holder in the shower had been removed and some black substance covered the spot. These are all things I can live with since I'm unwilling to pay the higher prices of other motels, but the very strong odor of disinfectant or a cleaning product was quite unpleasant. The wifi was good.
