The room was clean, 2 big beds, ok for 4 people. The price is ok, not too expensive . But ask for a room far from the road or you won't be able to sleep well. Unfortunatly when we were there one saturday night some people close to our room made a party ! Impossible to sleep ! The location...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 August 2016

The Governor House Inn is an older Motel ala the Route 66 Roadway Inns. The price per night was a bargain considering it is in the DC area. The rooms were clean and up to date. The staff and management was helpful and well informed. The Motel provided free shuttle service to the Metro. I stayed for 8 nights and...

The Governor House Inn has a free shuttle to the Metro, free breakfast, clean rooms and very helpful front desk staff! Our 4 day stay was very reasonable, and we would definitely return to this location!!!.

I stayed at this motel for a few days during the spring break. The room had a strong moldy smell. I tried to use the air-conditioner to get some fresh air in, but it only spewed out hot air. I learned the air conditioner system in the hotel was not working, and had to keep the door ajar to get...

We needed a place to stay while in falls church and near Washington DC. The hotel needs some TLC, the TV doesn't work well, the internet service blocks membership websites, and the water spouts in the sink and shower don't work well at all. However, if you need a place to crash for a cheap price, this would be that...

I spent spring break in Washington DC for a few days. I decided to try this hotel which was at a reasonable price. It is an old hotel, moderately clean, with a decent continental breakfast. However the other people that stay at this hotel seem to be a bit shady, very loud, and I'm not sure I would return to...

Room was dated. Very loud music and singing coming from somewhere in the hotel. We called the desk and we're told it was a church group who would be singing for several more hours- past 10pm. Most hotels want it quiet after 8:00. We were given a different room but it was still noisy. Breakfast was poor. Eggs were powdered....

This used to be a Comfort Inn and now its a little worn and showing its age. Hmmm, let's see; I could rate it down because it has seen a few years and suggest the current owners spend millions of dollars and double the price to pay for those improvements, or I could live with a little worn carpet and...

As a computer scientist traveling to DC to work with DARPA, I'm appalled that I can't do any work because there's no internet in my room (room 240 to be exact). Simply unacceptable. Other than that, this is just a normal hotel. In hindsight I should've done Airbnb which would be more personal and likely cheaper. They are plenty of...
