We are staying here tonight and flying to Bangor, Maine in the morning. That is where we will start our trip. Hopefully all of the **** in Washington will be done by the time we get back here to tour around.

Panicking parents and never ending trains

... blocks to the national history museum, which was wicked, my inner loser definitely came out for the two hours spent there. Although, I was extremely disappointed to find out the t-Rex (from night at the museum) was not on display as they were making a new area for it. I then decided I wanted to rent a bike, as from my experience in amsterdam and miami I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it was the best way to see everything that I wanted. So, I got my bike and off I went to explore ...

We had supper in the airport so had time to do some chatting before heading for the I-95 and the journey back to 'Midlothian. The traffic was very heavy so we stopped for a coffee and didn't make it "home" until the early hours, the 2 hour trip back to Linda & Pete's took 4 ...

... of planning. They got it to the top of the stairs and stopped to rest. Mike was making jokes - you wanted to be on Mike's truck today, huh? - and the two little guys laughed and laughed. Anyway they got every thing in okay, no scratches. (Mike said Don't scratch it! I don't want to carry this thing back to the truck, the only way it's going down is in pieces!) it took them about two hours to install everything. It really changes the look of the place - now it is starting to look like ...

Museums & Monuments

... went into Cambodia & Laos. No mention of the heavy bombings that devasted most of the north of the latter or indeed the use of chemical warfare. I guess they only have so much space to tell a tale... Next is a mention of the first Iraq war, where the World Police stepped in after Iraq popped into Kuwait for some oil. Then the second Iraq war where America performed a 'pre-emptive strike'. Classy. Then a bit about the Medal of Honor and that's the war stuff sorted. Not that that ...

    So far so good

    We checked in early this morning. They allowed us to check in before the 3 P.M. time. Which was great, because we wanted to sight see ASAP. The room was clean and the bathroom was up to date.
    Everyone ran downstairs and the shuttle picked us up right in front of the hotel. Pick up was a breeze too at the Union Station in the afternoon. We had pizza ,soda, wings included with our stay. No problem ordering. So far so good! Its not the Ritz..its just what was in our budget.

    Can i give it less than 1 out of 5??

    from

    Oh my god this was a scary place, we thought since it was only 2 miles from the capitol building this would be a good location to stay to see the sights. If the "sights" were five guys getting arrested for what i would guess to be drug dealing then here is your hotel. On the walk to the hotel we saw a "working girl" being picked up for a job and then there was the wee shop across the road that was scary with questionably clientel. Please for the love of god dont stay here.

    Not bad rooms though.

    Bu hey it was nice enought for MP George Galloway

    But he's a nutter

    Oh dear god get me away!!

    from

    We booked this hotel and when we got the room it stank!! And I mean STANK! We felt sick afterthen minutes and I was on the verge of throwing up! We left instantly and drove the 15 minute drive to the nice area, through the ghetto where the hotel was in and arrived in george town to the washington suites. Great hotel, little expensive but you get sofas, tvs internet, FREE breakfast and luxury!! Stay well clear of the Presidents Inn! Its expensive for what you get unless you like stink, scum and customer service without a thought for the customer.

    Run! Run! Run! for your life.

    from

    This hotel is MILES from any important DC attraction. There is NO transportation to or from the hotel. You must walk several blocks in a very depressed neighborhood with bums and beggars all around. Cabs will not stop at this hotel. I booked it for 3 nights and stayed only one (barricaded in my room). At 11:10 p.m. I was awakened by the sirens of 14 cruisers pulling in to the lobby. Got out of there first thing the next morning.

    Make it a one night stay

    from

    I stayed here with my brother for three nights in June 2005. This wasn't a bad choice apart from the dirty and smelly clothes that we found in a closet. The best thing about this hotel is that it's located in a very quiet neighbourhood, so if you're looking for a good sleep for just one night- this is it. You will also be offered a fair breakfast and a newspaper in the morning. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. What more can you ask for except a nice view..well, there isn't one.

    It's bad even for the cheap hotel.

    from

    I and my sister was booking this hotel online without knowing about the location or whatsoever about this hotel. I would not recommend this hotel if you don't have your own transportation to travel with because it's extremely far from the city. You have to pay for a cab or at least take a bus (which take about 30 mins from Union Station.) And it's also extremely tough to get the cab from this hotel to everywhere. (We stayed in front of hotel for at least 30 mins before we could get any cab.)

    President Inn - a bad choice

    from

    I was looking for a cheap hotel for me and my fellow student in Washington over the internet side Hostelsweb. Unfortunetaly I was in a hurry. So I just looked at the information an pictures on this side. There was everything fine. Breakfest included, gym, pool etc. and the pictures were also good. Because of my work I had to move my reservation. That was not so easy because the englisch of the guy on the telephone was even worser than mine. But finally I managed it to get a new reservation number. As we arrived there, they didn´t had a reservation in theresystem and told me I had to pay 75$(instead of 62$). After I told them my story they told I had to pay 95$. No one knows why! I had the whole time the feeling that they don´t really listened to me. As I told them that I had also a reservation number, they told me again that I had to pay 75$ without looking on the reservation number. Because it was late, I took the room. The rest was almost the same experience as descripted before. And there was no gym or pool. Only the room was almost what I expected.

    Not very nice at all

    from

    I agree with all the other reviews. My room was just acceptable, except very warm with aircon that had wires hanging out of it and looked very dodgy. The staff were friendly enough. Didn't like the look of the neighbourhood at all, and took taxis to/from the city. Glad I only had to put up with it for 2 nights. Give it a miss is my advice. It is very overpriced too.

    Listen to me, Don't stay at this hotel.

    from

    Having returned from a 6 night stay at the President Inn Hotel with a group of 12 college students, I think I am more than qualified to write a fair review of the hotel. First I would like to say that the staff was very helpful and accommodating. A bus stop about a block away from the hotel provided convenient transportation to Union Station. Those points are pretty much the only positives to this hotel.

    Avoid this Low Grade Type Hotel

    from

    When we were looking for a hotel in Wash, we stopped by this place and asked to see a room before getting one, good thing we did! Outside the neighborhood is full of (censored) and is very dangerous. The rooms are disgusting, we saw some "stains" on the beds and instantly left and didn't come back, we found the Radisson as a better alternate and it was worth it.

    Expect the worst, get the worst

    from

    I stayed in this "hotel" with a group, it was the worst experience you could imagine! We thought we had a good rate, but every dollar for this hotel was not worth it!!! Dirty rooms, prostitutes(!) in front of the hotel and even in the so called lobby! Only recommended for travellers who want to have the great adventure!
