My wife and i walked through that neighborhood as late as eleven pm and felt at ease,...

Very nice, clean motel near the East Falls Church Metro station. The continental breakfast includes eggs and sausage. We left some clothes in a drawer. The staff found them and held them for our daughter to pick up.

This hotel was sufficient for our visit to DC. It does take almost 30 minutes to get to DC. The hotel is clean, compact and the breakfast decent. All the staff are friendly and helpful except for the one person who checked us in and out. The best part of our stay was the little french restaurant next door! The...
