Nice property, rates are uncompetitive


August 06, 2022

Relatively new property, large comfortable rooms with kitchenettes and free laundry. The location is a little weird, at the end of the road right next to a highway, but that doesn't bother me. The real issue with this hotel is that they add $50 to the rate at the end of the booking process. This makes the cost uncompetitive and thus I only stay here when I am using points. I wish I could book here more often. Watch carefully for this when you are completing your booking.

Very clean


March 17, 2022

Room was very clean and comfortable, However, Overnight gentleman was extremely rude, and was even yelling at me upon check in. I came to check in at midnight and i had a reservation for that day but the guy at the front desk would not let me check in because i had to wait until 3pm in the afternoon. i then said i would book another reservation with my rewards points, then he started yelling and telling me that was not possible that i couldn't make a reservation for that same night and check in at that time. Very disappointing and uncomfortable experience at c/i.

Great stay!


December 12, 2021

It’s in a nice, quiet area. Check in was really quick and painless. The tv in our room didn’t work but they had a new one installed by the time we got up to our room. A knob was missing off of the timer on the stove and someone replaced it in less than 10 min of me calling. Service and response time is excellent. Everyone at desk was friendly and helpful. Room was clean. I loved the kitchen layout. I loved that there was a full size fridge, dishwasher, and stovetop. Things you rarely find in hotels. I have already decided that each time I visit the DMV area this is where I will stay.
