No word of a lie - this was one of the best stays I've had at a hotel in some time. Sure - some would be put off by it's location - but it's not bad at all - and will only get better. North east Washington will be completely transformed in the next few years - mark my words.
This hotel was very affordable... and offered a full hot breakfast for free daily. There is also an hourly shuttle that takes you to and from Union station - a perfect launch pad for any activity we had planned.
The REAL great thing about this hotel was the people. From manager Carl right on down - everyone there was exceptionally helpful and friendly - even very busy folk like the front desk help and the breakfast room attendants. Driver Carlos was especially helpful - ensuring we were well taken care of and asking if there was anywhere we needed to go pretty much daily.
I have absolutely no qualms recommending this hotel to anyone travelling to DC, and hope to visit there again soon.

My wife, my two older teenagers and I spent some days at this hotel. We had a good experience. It's good value for money spent, especially given the free hourly shuttle to the main train station. That allowed us to leave the car parked for days while we took in downtown Washington by foot and public transit.
We got a two queen mini-suite with the extra couch and extra TV area. Having the microwave and mini-fridge is useful. Beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet. What more could you ask for?
We had a good experience with the staff. They were attentive and friendly and wanted to be helpful. In fact, we originally booked just our first night here, but after one stay changed our plans and booked additional days (and cancelled a rival chain's hotel). We had one hickup with the shuttle return, and when I brought it up at the front desk, they resolved it immediately to my satisfaction.
Breakfast was pretty good. Obviously for a no-cost self-serve, you have to manage expectation, but it's good to see healthy choices too (yogurt and fresh fruit, etc).
I'd return anytime I come back to Washington.
