We stayed one night at this hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Both the elevators and bathroom were small by my experience with other hotels. The bathroom sink was slow to drain. When I notify the front desk that the shampoo dispenser in the bathroom was empty, they sent someone up immediately with more shampoo. The breakfast area was nice, the breakfast was hot and good.
I was staying just one night at the end of a road trip. This was a good location for me to fly from BWI the next day. It’s fairly easy to find. There is valet parking for $10 - a limited amount of this onsite while most vehicles need to be taken to a nearby lot. As it was just before 6pm when I arrived, I parked on a meter right outside, put in less than a dollar and could leave the car there til 9am the next day. Excellent.
The hotel is small as was the room (325). I was originally assigned room 524 but asked to be moved as this backed onto the elevators - after a short chat I was moved. The bathroom was about the most small I have ever seen in a hotel but it was functional and everything was clean.
The free breakfast was very good.
