This was a horrible place. unwelcoming, (URL HIDDEN) smelled like moth balls and pot pourri when you walked in the door. it was a bit creepy with stuff all over the place...a lot of bead necklaces strung on various places. My room was small again with stuff everywhere. There was no dresser so I had pile up my clothes on what looked like an old TV stand. Everything was old! I put my toiletries on an old microwave that was next to my bed (?) because there was no room in the bathroom to put my toiletries. The sheets had been washed so many times that it was full of pills (when the cotton pulls up and forms a dot). I felt so creepy that I ended up leaving and sleeping on my sons couch (who I was visiting). The place was dark, the room was not (URL HIDDEN) not stay here.

It was a great experience. Its a clean and safe place, close to metro station. Steve, Larry & Bo, make you feel like you were in a hotel but with the feeling of home.

Steve was away during my visit. He quickly responded to my call when I found the entry locks and keys confusing. The kitchen was well-stocked with breakfast and snack items. My room was fine. On-street parking is limited.

I had a very pleasant 4 nights with Larry in his home in Columbia Heights. It was well located and easy to access from either Metro stop nearby. I only met Larry on the last day as we had schedules that prevented us from meeting sooner. However, his instructions for getting there and finding the key were clear and I had no problem coming and going. The house is very interesting, eclectic, and quiet. The room was as advertised and reviewed.

I have never stayed in a private room before but found this room with attached bath to be as comfortable as a hotel. The host is friendly but not intrusive. He left maps and brochures of available events in DC. My daughter lives nearby and it was an easy walk to her place as well as the two nearby metro stations. The neighborhood is mixed (private homes, apartments, condos, some low income) but I always felt safe walking.

On a été très bien reçu, même avant le temps indiqué, la chambre bien propre, il n'y avait personne, mais partout étaient des petits mots sur les choses nécessaires ou règlements. Après on a fait connaissance avec Larry, il a été très discret et nous a demandé si nous avons besoin de qch.
