    Convenient, compact and clean

    Appreciated the eco friendly feature. A little short on clothes storages though. Had a minor issue with the sliding bathroom door getting stuck. Overall very pleased, as my purpose was to visit DC sites and spent little non sleep time in the room. Super handy to the Metro

    Clean cozy room

    It is an efficiency hotel so the room was small but had extra storage under the bed and everything I needed as a solo traveler. Conveniently located to explore DC. Rooftop bar was nice to have a drink on a sunny afternoon. Wait to park anywhere until you check in so you can scan the QR code to get the discount for $30 per 24 hours. Parking is 1 city block away.

    My first DC trip

    This hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. It was a convenient location to walk to a few stores and many restaurants. I would stay here again if I am ever in DC again, which I hope to be.

    Trip to DC

    Overall the hotel and location are ok, not far from all the sites in D.C. Was a little surprised at all the noise near the hotel, which is why they have ear plugs in the room for guest. Quite a few homeless people right outside the front door of the hotel. Our biggest issue with this place was the size of the rooms. We live in Europe where hotel rooms tend to be a bit smaller, but this was a closet with a bed and tiny shower.

    Request cleaning

    I had a great stay at the Motto. Excellent location and the front desk staff were awesome. You do not get your room cleaned automatically you have to ask for it at least one day in advance

    Great Service, Clean & Fresh Accommodations

    Service could not be more amazing. Rooms were small, but well designed and efficient. Everything felt new and clean. Rachel at the front desk was awesome. Conveniently across the street from the Gallery Place/China Town metro. Two stops from Union Station, if you take the Amtrak in. A conveyor belt sushi place is across the street. Most of DC, now that the police have been defunded, is pretty sketchy these days, but this area especially so. You have to use your room key to even get into the lobby - but we appreciated this safety feature when we found we had to scoot back in because a ranting and shouting character was coming down the street. Again, this is pretty much what you're finding throughout the city and not just in this area, so not a mark against Motto. Crimson Whiskey Bar is in the basement, and we ate in rather than venture out at night. China Town of today is very different from a decade ago. Some good Chinese restaurants, but only found a single Chinese retail store where there used to be dozens - along with grocery stores, meat markets and Chinese medicinal stores. Very sad to see the evolution. Don't stay here for a China Town experience, that no longer exists, however, it's proximity to other attractions is great. If you want to do the Smithsonian and other memorials, it's a good location.

    Loved it

    Very small rooms, but very clean and well planned (little shelves and storage areas. We got two rooms instead of sharing one. I really liked this hotel, Location is PERFECT and the price is fair. The staff was just outstanding. Metro station across the street. Walgreens next door. Rooftop bar, Resturant and lower level bar all attached. The only knock I would have is no fridge in the room. I will stay here again.

    Best location for the price

    Love this hotel! It's affordable and comfortable. And it just happens to be right in the middle of the district. Having a rooftop bar and whiskey bar downstairs (Crimson) makes this hotel a destination.
