Room is large and spacious Everything is clean Bed is comfy

Laundry can be busy at certain times and they could stand to have another washer and dryer My only complaint is all the people that like to smoke right outside the entrance doors even though there is a sign saying not too I wish that Hilton would bring back the deeper discount for nurses Overall a great stay!!

Andrew Kearns

Newer hotel so rooms and amenities are nice However, we had a bad experience with our room First, we arrived after 4pm and there were a dozen or so people waiting in the lobby because rooms were not ready

Check-in is at 3pm so they were already running behind schedule to get people in their rooms Second, the room type we reserved was not available so they had to switch us to a studio We were travelling with 2 small children so not having the suite was a huge inconvenience On top these 2 failures, the staff was unapologetic They blamed the booking sites and say they can’t guarantee any room type I call BS on that and will be investigating to see if we are owed any sort of refund for not getting the room type we booked

Very nice with the modern edge and a Hilton spin I kind of wish they put out a little bit more of a selection for breakfast in the morning It’s still stripped down to minimalist COVID mode

A few different kinds of things would be niceAlso, how am I supposed to treat my Vitamin D deficiency if there are no donuts? Is there a doctor in the house?

Carpets were dirty The twin beds took up most of the room There was the sofa bed, but it had no sheets – we had to order them twice before they came

Worst of all, the free breakfast (well, we probably paid for it out of the $27500 one night stay) I was hoping they would have a nice selection for one’s personal taste – especially for the room rate The eggs were cold hard boiled, no fruit, there was milk, cereal, and some packaged waffles Juice too Forget trying to find any hot scrambled eggs or omelettes – they didn’t offer any McDonald’s would have been better We were the only ones wearing masks in the crowded room that had no social distancing during this latest COVID outbreak – and the dirty looks we got from patrons – I don’t think it was because we are interracial – but you never know The looks were like “Why are you here? – “Do you really belong?” – “How can you afford this place?”

Jasmin Leu

Big and clean room with fridge, microwave and TVBreakfast was delicious good choice Oat milk and fresh fruits were a highlight

Negative is that there is to much single use plastic involved Instead use real plates and mugs and glasses Would be much more environmentaly conciousIf this changes 5 stars are appropriate

Michael Sadowsky

My interactions with the staff were excellent When I asked for sheets for the pullout they had them right awayThis location’s breakfast has not fully recovered from COVID yet

There was breakfast, but more limited than I would normally expect from a Springhill, and lots of individual packages, and less hot food optionsThis was the smallest Springhill room I have ever stayed in We had a King with a pullout, and when the couch was pulled out the door to the room could not be fully opened I’m not sure how that isn’t a fire hazard

This place is an unbelievably good deal The rooms are HUGE (be sure to ask for a tower room) It’s a bit of a drive from DC, but we plan on staying here any time we come back

This hotel offers an experience you typically don’t get unless you’re spending an additional $100-200 per night Be sure to walk to the town square in Rockville where you’ll find families with kids playing in the water park when the weather is warm Great hotel for families


The staff is very unfriendly we said hello and attempted to be friendly after making 8 hour trip with a baby But, They did not say hello or welcomed to the hotel

“keys, wifi, elevator to the left” is all they said we asked for a change to do laundry, and the staff refused There was no coffee in the morning, and 2 staff were talking to each other while guests were waiting for coffee Location and building are fine, but service is terrible

Mike Larrick

OK but quite expensive for the quality Rooms are clean and large, but not a lot to write home about No bath, only basic cable

They will charge you $20 for parking, which seems scammy They tell you they’ll validate parking but don’t mention they’ll charge you for it For a hotel on the outskirts of beltway suburbia, you’d think they would include that with the room I didn’t take a boat in Also they will send you spam emails and texts to sign up for their club

Super nice front desk staff! They were courteous, friendly, and very helpful The room was nice There were a couple of small things that need to be repaired

The location: the hotel is located in a business park environment So, the view is of roads or the parking lot There are shops about a half mile away They have an indoor pool and hot tub Breakfast is pretty basic fare There is a bar in the restaurant So, nothing fancy But, the staff is superb!

Jason Lee

In terms of hospitality and comfort, this stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Rockville-Gaithersburg hotel was by far one of the most best and memorable experiences Joyce and April both helped our two families check in quickly and easily allowing us to make the most of our short stay Not only that, they also took the time to get to know us and found out that it was our 4 year olds birthday and made it extra special by giving him a really memorable present

It’s these little things that make us keep coming back to Hilton and if you’re ever looking for a comfortable, friendly stay, look no further!

Courtenay Marshall

The hotel is clean and well maintained but a little tired and could use some upgrading It’s located in a convenient and nice neighborhood The restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful

The hotel still is not cleaning daily which is fine but I called 4 times and visited the front desk in person asking to get the in-room coffee replenished including waiting up late last night for someone that would be “right up” I’m typing this in need of coffee desperately I’m a Hilton Diamond member and besides a 25 cent bottle of water at checkin there has been no acknowledgment It’s just about impossible to get responses If you just need a room and don’t care about indifferent “service” then it’s fine to stay here Don’t forget to bring your own Kuerig coffee pods if you are staying more than one night Tried to check out on the app but that wasn’t working so went to the front desk and the girl at front desk was busy on a FaceTime call with her friend and couldn’t be bothered to talk and said put the key in the jar Indifferent “service” by the hotel staff from beginning to the end

Overall it was a fine place to stayCONS The breakfast was not good at all Soggy waffles, dried out sausage, the eggs were okay

I stay places with breakfast in mind and that was not one I would want to have again The stay was Over priced I felt compared to the marriott Renaissance Cleveland that I was in the weekend before for $50 cheaper and only 5 min walk from the house of blues right downtown where my concert was at Not real close to late night food placesPROS The staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfy The area was nice and I felt safe walking around at night

Speaking to a handicapped accessible room Shower seat extended past the tub making it impossible to use the shower curtain to keep water off the floor Since housekeeping is limited this meant I had to ask for extra towels to soak up the water on the floor

There is a phone installed on the wall that is so close to the grab bar that it makes it difficult to use the bar effectively so my son has knocked the phone off the hook a few times when trying to gain his balanceRoom didn’t have dish soap or towels and dish set was a bit incomplete We reserved a king bed suite and got a queen studio Considering my son is 16 and needs space due to his surgery that is a huge adjustmentMany of the lights on the property do not work which becomes an issue of safety at night I had to use my cell phone flashlight to navigate the property and also to figure out how to use the card to enter (no light at the door or lights in the parking lot) which isn’t the easiest thing while pushing my child in a wheelchair that needs two hands to do so Accessible entrance is not easily found Went to two doors because the one near the parking lot wasn’t accessible and the one near the courtyard was (super steep incline on the ramp to that door)If you don’t have to consider safety and accessible options it’s likely ok I stayed here before many years ago but my son at that time was not wheelchair bound so I didn’t notice all these problems thenThe hallways do have smells of food and animals but the room appears to smell ok Our tv also doesn’t work properly It allegedly was on 86:100 but barely a whisper as far as volume

This place rips off veterans Really, they’re ripping off the citizens of the United States by not honoring the government rate for official travel But also ripping me off, because I’m going to have to eat the difference based on the way travel reimbursements work

Occasion: Work travel- Booked online for 3-8 April at government rate of $199- Shortened reservation to check out 6 April before my arrival date ( my Th/Fr meetings were cancelled) and was not informed of a rate change, nor did I receive an updated confirmation reflecting a different rate)- Offered proper documentation per their website at check in and was told they didn’t need (looking back, this could have been a foreshadowing but it’s not uncommon for businesses to not want to see ID so I didn’t infer trouble at the time)- Called on the 5th to extend until Friday again (they added back the meetings on Th/Fr) and was not informed of a rate change, nor did I receive an updated confirmation reflecting a different rate-When I received the bill, even though they had listed the correct rate at the top, they charged me $328 for all but the last day (smh on that one) And to make matters worse, when I tried to call the hotel and Marriott to get the adjustment, they denied me!Would I return/recommend? Not if you’re military or government on official travelFWIW, the husband is a Hilton Honors member and has never had an issue of this nature or a response of this type from Hilton I’m already looking into whether I can transfer my status

Due to a project, which got extended over and over again, i spent quite a few months in total here this year Reception, Bar, Security, Housekeeping staff etc were all so amazing

Felt very welcomed here and the overall competence as well as the motivation of the staff to make your stay special was totally outstandingReally gonna miss most of them and hope to see them again!Absolutely recommended from my sideSafe travels everyone!🙏🏼

Rion McKeithen

I visited this location for business travel and was exceptionally pleased with my experience Upon arrival, I received a small welcome gift [as a member of the rewards program], and had a beautiful lake facing room I was pleased that it was quiet and all service requests were tended to with care

During my stay I enjoyed the fitness facility, restaurant, and adjacent attractions at Rio It was very nice to have the option to go to the movie theatre or walk around the lake right next to the front doorEven though there were many highlights of this trip, the best part was undoubtedly the service provided by Carla [front desk] She went above and beyond in helping me with all of my questions and become acquainted with the area I even had a few requests that were not part of the regular offerings and she helped craft and deliver innovative solutions It was a refreshing relief to receive such excellent customer service that would be more commonly associated with the St RegisOverall I strongly recommend this hotel for any business travelers and also believe it would be suitable for families as it quite safe and orderly There are also adjacent attractions for children including a carousel, large arcade and multiple high quality family restaurants

Sue Bai

My daughter and I stayed here last week during the independence day weekend The hotel was quiet, clean and the staff are very friendly and welcoming The location was ideal: we walked over to AMC for a movie-night right across the hotel! The breakfast food was so well prepared I left a note to the food service manager about how much we appreciated the wonderfully prepared food, even though it was a slow weekend with very few customers at the hotel

I am impressed by the quality of the service and highly recommend this hotel!

Great Bed and Breakfast in a beautiful historical home with rooms themed to the seasons We stayed in the Fall room Had a comfortable bed, cold and hot drinks, always available downstairs

Served peach muffins for breakfast Oatmeal and cereal bars were other options When we returned back to our room for the second night we enjoyed a snack of homemade brownies! Rockers on the front porch were relaxing! What a charming town!

Nice rooms comfortable beds but when I reserved the room I paid for the “romance package” chocolate covered strawberries wine and roses were to be waiting in our room on the bed also breakfast room service and a late check out When my wife and I arrived there was no such thing as a romance package

we did not get any of the extras I had hoped for no room service there was wine available in the lobby and the maids pounded on our door every hour like the police! Our quiet romantic evening and morning was a let down We have 5 kids and was really looking forward to a quiet morning sleeping in but it didn’t happen thanks to the maids probably won’t visit this hotel again

Shearmene Steals

The hot tub was closed, couldn’t use the gym due to the pungent sewer odor, the pool also smelled bad after being in it for 30 minutes,the computers were also not working during breakfast at the hotel the waitress was very polite and helpful as well as the dining staff however the cook did not get my orders correct He made me wait 40 minutes to recieve my breakfast after preparing food for other guest at the hotel, although I was first to order

Todd Hess

I spend 80% of my time living out of Hiltons So I know what to expectPositive:Rooms are largeHousekeeping staff does a great job

Negative:Maintenance needs in the rooms need attentionMaintenance again, the spa out of orderFront desk lady was very rude when we arrivedOne of the reasons why we chose a Garden Inn, is because they have a onsite pub when we come home in the evening we can have a drink before retiring We were told us guest we’re not allowed to have drinks because they had rented it out for a private party The manager argued that he could reduce our accommodations anytime he wanted We’re paying for something we’re not gettingI recommend you do not stay here Just stay at the Hampton, that’s the service level you get Why Pay More

Nature Duran-Smith

We really enjoyed our stay here! The location was GREAT We also appreciated the free parking Every one of the front desk staff was very very nice

I was pleasantly surprised at our room Much bigger than what I was anticipating! The beds were super comfy and I loved the channels on the TV My room also had a full-sized fridge, a 2 burner stove, and a dishwasher! There was an AC unit that kept the room cold, but I turned it off and used the ceiling fan instead, which was perfect! The shower door wasn’t sliding properly, but the shower was nice anyways We took advantage of the complimentary breakfast which satisfied our breakfast hunger We also took advantage of the pool! It wasn’t crowded at all and enjoyed the jacuzzi The only problem we encountered about 3 times was that our key would stop working suddenly Being on the 6th floor, it was a little annoying to keep having to take the elevator down to get a new key Other than that, my stay was comfortable and amazing and would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Kyle M Brown

Worst stay I’ve ever had at a Homewood Suites Room 362 Arrived around 630pm

1 Arrived with dinner Digital key failed to work even though the app said it was ready The room door was broken and ajar when we arrived So we walked into the room without the need for a key I have never seen this at any hotel I have no idea how can a room be cleaned and inspected and someone misses that the door won’t close This is a huge security issue and calls into question whether rooms are being inspected2 Reported to the front desk and a maintenance man came to the room and after multiple trips resolved the issue by replacing the door plate that holds the door shut3 We could not see any trash cans in the suite After looking in the kitchen cabinet under the sink we found two We placed one in the bathroom and kept the other in the kitchen4 There were no bag inserts for the ice bucket After contacting the front desk we were told housekeeping would bring them by, but they never showed up4b Didn’t matter much because there was no ice machine on our floor See attached When we reported this to the front desk they acted as if this was new information and proceeded to give me directions to the ice machine5 The kitchen faucet was so loose that the entire thing lifted from the granite surface when turning it on6 The bedroom ac unit rattled very loud as if the unit was coming out of the wall We had to switch on the fan instead which was not optimal7 The hot water at the bathroom sink took a while to warm up The sink is likely clogged as it took several minutes for the water to drain8 The closet doors were open, broken, and could not be closedAs a long-time Hilton customer, I was willing to work this out because things happen, so the following morning around 5am, I requested a full or partial refund with the front desk and was told, only a Manger could honor such a request and they won’t be in until 9amI asked to be called, and was not, so around 910am I returned to the front desk and explained the room’s issues to a yet another person, she disappeared to a back office for a few minutes then returned and told me the manager doesn’t come in on Saturdays So the run-around was in playAt this point, I had interacted with 3 different employees and gotten very little serviceBy far, my biggest issue is that management refused to engage and resolve the issue This is the second time that I have stayed at a Hilton property where management leveraged its staff to avoid doing what a manager should do since the employees were not empowered toAnd so, I am left to tell others about the experienceI would not stay at this location again I would not recommend this location

My wheelchair bound son and I booked a room through our insurance for a ten day visit because our apt flooded In the fifteen minutes it took from the trip being booked and us arriving…They gave away our room for the night but tried to offer us a room the following day They said they could “try” to clean another room but that room didn’t have running water

I learned that our room was given away because as I was waiting in the lobby to check in, the hotel rep was on the phone with our insurance telling her that she gave away the room for the night despite it being available at the time of booking because someone else walked in needing a room before usBasically if you are homeless and need an insurance paid stay, these people won’t care and will give away your fully paid roomETA: the company responded but no mention of a bathroom was in my original complaint because we never stayed here… good ole auto response I guess

Hotel was clean and room was ok Paid for a suite, but couldn’t use the balcony because of the insane amount of spiders and webs on it Pullout couch didn’t come with pillows or blankets as requested, but we survived

Worst part of this place is the “bistro” This was the only reason we picked this place The ease of traveling with children and having the restaurant right there was why we picked this place In the evening I went to get me and my wife a drink Much to the dismay of the 2 gentleman behind the bar, as I must have interrupted something more important “in the back” I had to repeat my order several times as he refused to take his ear buds out Ended up taking the hint and just calling it a nightThe next morning I guess we were hopeful the next shift would be better At least the 2 kids attempted to wait on us Me and my family were the ONLY people in this restaurant and were ignored by everyone that worked there We finally just got up and left and got breakfast elsewhere I would never stay here again and feel I should be refunded for my stay Avoid if you can!

the inside was redone recently and is very nice The outside is a bit of a deterrent If I was driving by I would not go in

But once in the door the lobby, room, and amenities are really nice The service at the Coffee Bar was perfect The woman that served us was Awesome and not to mention we left at 11pm and returned at 8am and she was back!!!! What dedication

Brian L

I feel for the most part that Courtyard in itself just kind of rides off the Marriott name and this one is no exceptionPRO’s – The hotel main floor is very clean, has ample lounge spots and overall very inviting The inside fireplace is very nice and welcoming

The little store off from the front desk is super convenient (also ridiculously expensive) The rooms have been updated(ish) with comfortable beds, new sofas, carpet yet out of place looking furniture with an early 90s persona Room service was great and they replenish with more than enough towelsCONS – The Bistro in the morning is the worst Bistro of all the Marriotts I’ve been to in the last ten years and I’ve been to ALOT The Bistro “opens” at 6:30a through the week and my rewards include free breakfast everyday Would’ve been awesome if someone was actually there at 6:30 and ready to serve Nope 6:40? Nope! Half the time closer to 7am and the poor guy from the front desk has to come over there and do the Bistro employees job BECAUSE THEY DONT SHOW UP ON TIME, CONSISTENTLY!! The food is also way overpriced for what you get, I mean…over $4 for a small bottle of water? Is this hotel THAT broke? Front desk guy needs a raise as he was doing everyone’s job most mornings, by himself The floor hallways are very long and creepy as in new carpet yet odd looking wood doors out of the 80s The keyless cards don’t work half of the time The toilet takes five flushes just to get a piece of toilet paper to actually go down Water pressure is horrible and takes ten minutes to try and get all the soap off you in the shower Undersized room TVs and only two USB ports in the whole room and those two are on top of the alarm clock The outside of the hotel is cringe and unwelcoming The grounds need major focus and look overall unkempt Killed multiple spiders in the room throughout my stay The pillows are way to flat and unsupportive Took all five of them together just to make one good one that kept my neck straight One washer and one dryer for the entire hotel that look like the first whirlpools ever invented and did not wash nor dry good at all Stairwell carpets are stained and you aren’t sure if you’re climbing stairs in a state prison or a hospitalOverall, the lobby felt more like a Marriott while everything else felt like a nice Motel 6 If you’re passing through for the night and traveling alone than this will suffice but don’t expect much because the hotel just doesn’t offer much and the staff is just kinda “there” I will most definitely not be staying with this hotel again and will not book it for any of my employees going forward

Without a doubt, the best stay I’ve had in a long time Location was close to my destination and food options I loved that breakfast was included which is not common these days

The room was big and I enjoyed the kitchen as well I did request a higher floor which I did getThe two negatives I had were there seemed to be a sports group in town They were loud while we tried to sleep and they didn’t offer housekeeping (even though I asked) I didn’t like putting my trash outside of my door or going down to the front desk and ask for sheets after I discovered a small blood stain I understand the world we live in but its one of the perks I do miss I think if you aren’t going to offer housekeeping than the least that can happen is to make sure the lines are clan and don’t have any kind of stains Overall, I would stay again and plan too

This was our first stay at a TownePlace Suites As other reviews mentioned, the location is currently undergoing a renovation We did not encounter any issues related to that and it did not impact our stay at all

The room was spacious and clean The sofa bed, which we utilized because of the size of our family, was a bit disappointing and (according to my son) very uncomfortable I thought perhaps the mattress was missing, but was told that it was simply a “new design” Sometimes new is not betterThe pool was a bit disappointing and the pool itself, although not filthy, was not the cleanest we’ve encountered There was also a lack of sufficient towels Needless to say, we did not stay long at allBreakfast was decent with options for microwaved breakfast sandwiches or a pre-packaged quiche, among the typical pastries, oatmeal, and cereal The sandwiches and quiche had ingredients listed on the package, which is important for us due to some specific dietary restrictionsThe staff was very friendly and helpful, and the check-in/check-out process was a breeze


The hotel room was very nice I was greeted warmly by Alaina and Ryan They were always helpful and pleasant

Thanks for everything guys! The hotel was under renovation during our visit, but I did not hear any noise from the 4th floor The breakfast was great, but not many options, however there are plenty of places to eat nearby Room service is not available daily, but the staff was very helpful with making sure that we had any and all supplies that we needed, they took time to bring it to us within minutes of asking I will certainly return

I had my room canceled at another hotel and had to drive to this hotel When I arrived for an early check in, the front desk clerk (Mr Addy I believe) did an exceptional job easing my check in process

He made sure (on his own) that I had an available room and my wife and daughter was able to get some needed rest Great hotel to stay in and when I am back in town again, I know where I will be stayingBest

For a Sheraton it is not very clean The towels were not very clean But for the price it’s not bad

I paid for breakfast for four days and I only went one day I ordered two egg tortillas and they were fried in butter, but they seemed like they were drowned in that oil I really liked the location, it looks very quiet and is next to some very nice apartments

First things first, they need to remove the pool as an amenity on their booking sites When we arrived, we inquired about the pool and the host stated it was closed due to covid How could that be when the gym was open 24/7? Gym is really small but has enough quipment do get a decent workour

We stayed in a room on the 5th floor Decent size Lacks modern upgrades such as usb charging or just plain outlets at the nightstands Other than that, everything was fine The food laid out in the morning near the elevators were great They have onsite laundry services and also free parking I’d stay there again

Been coming here since the pandemic started to visit my family The service has improved and the staff are just amazing! Rooms are a bit small and they need new paintings especially a Upgraded TV Can’t play my Apple movies through their old tv

Breakfast is always great My favorite supervisor Sena at the reception desk is one of the most professional, friendly person I’ve ever met You can’t miss her, she has beautiful island curls and a flower always on hair as a signature The lobby is always clean and well kept, the fitness center though small has a great selection

Had to stay local for work, due to a recent snow/ice storm Very friendly and professional staff, especially for check in Room was very clean and perfectly put together

I’m the type of person who likes to look under the beds and in the cracks of things for bugs and I’m happy to report no bugs or signs of bugs whatsoever Room was super comfy and they had complementary breakfast in the morning Would be happy to stay there again if needed

Noelia Gonzales

Without realizing I booked a single bed room when it was 3 of us Without ANY hassle , cannot stress the ANY enough!!! The representative proceed to change our rooms , handed us keys and we were beyond gratefulI’ve been to other places where they weren’t so helpful and I’m very appreciative of their willingness to help and go the extra mile

Will be staying here again, it’s a great location, quiet and safe not to mention their pancake machine which fascinated my children Thank you for the awesome stay !

As a marriott platinum member, I was treated no better than other customers or even worse Was there ona business trip and the room charges supposed to be charged to the company credit card instead of mine However, they charged everything to my card although the company already authorized for all the charges to be put on their card

When I reached out to them they were not helpful or responsible Customer specialist Juliana James did not respond to my email after several attempts Definitely did not expect this kind of service and this is very disappointing for a Marriott brand

I’ve stayed at Courtyard by Marriott Gaithersburg a few times during the pandemic It is located in the heart of Washingtonian Rio and is a short walk to the movie theater, restaurants, and shops They have a small parking lot to the side of the hotel for guest registration and unloading

Additional parking is available in the retail parking garages The check-in and check-out process was smooth When I checked in, they told me about their weeknight happy hour from 5-10pm with discount on beer and wine and handed me a small flyer with guest information about their bistro, fitness center, housekeeping, and parking If theyoffered complimentary coffee and tea throughout the day and night to guests and two complimentary water bottles to their Elite rewards members, I’d give them 5 starsThe bistro located on the 2nd floor serves basic Starbucks drinks, breakfast, and dinner For breakfast, they have the following items: Two Egg Omelet, Eggs Your Way, Bistro Breakfast Sandwich, Balanced Breakfast Sandwich, Breakfast Burrito, and Classic Oatmeal For dinner, they may have the following items: Avocado Lemon Yogurt Dip, Caesar Salad, Margherita Flatbread, Loaded Tot – Chos, and Grilled Chicken & Bacon QuesadillaDuring my stay, I had breakfast at their bistro I had a Two Egg Omelet made with egg whites, gruyere, and caramelized onions It was served with crispy herb potatoes and ketchup and dressed with lemon EVOO It was deliciousMy room (including the bathroom) was clean, spacious, and great view of the Rio lakefront In terms of toiletries, they provided makeup wipe, facial bar, body wash, shampoo and conditioner I liked how the showers were hot The bed and sofa bed were super comfy My only complaint was the walls aren’t very insulated – you can hear conversations, opening and closing of doors, nature, and motor vehicles
