9.4 Excellent
Pros: Great free breakfast selection--probably the best I've had at a standard hotel
Cons: Thin walls
8.5 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was adequate.
Cons: One of the reasons I booked this hotel was because it had a workout room. When I went to workout the night I arrived I noticed that the room would not open until 8 am the next morning. That was very disappointing. I am traveling and would like to be on the road by 8 - 8:30 in the morning. I like to get up early and get my workout in before leaving. That was not possible. They did offer that I could go across the street to a gym they had ties with, but that kind of defeated the purpose of staying at a hotel with a fitness room on site.

Pros: The rooms were clean and you couldn't hear a ton of noise from outside. There were train track right next to the hotel and inside you couldn't hear it when the train went by.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: As someone who has recently stayed in an Extended Stay America in Baltimore (https://www.extendedstayamerica.com/hotels/md/baltimore/bwi-airport-aero-dr) with piss-soaked mattresses and unfriendly staff who were unwilling to change us to a piss-free room, this place felt like the Ritz-Carlton. That being said, take my compliments with a grain of salt given said urine-enriched experience.
Cons: The Best Westerns further south in Virginia have a bigger buffet spread: sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, etc. This one was pure starch, but it was still solid overall. Limited TV channels (possibly 20).
6.8 Good
Pros: Cost and convenience
Cons: Freight trains outside my window several times during night.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Complimentary breakfast was wonderful. Food stations were particularly clean and well organized.

Pros: This place was quaint and an easy walk from there into town. The owner was very nice and breakfast was lovely. The bathroom was updated and I enjoyed having a robe provided since it was a shared bath.
Cons: The room showed 2 single beds online but was a double bed when checking in. The room was much colder than the rest of the house. The cheap wrapped soaps and plastic-wrapped plastic cups in the bathroom took away from the ambiance of the place.

3.7 Mediocre
Pros: We wanted to enjoy it, but we couldn't.
Cons: Stains on carpet in room. Ripped shower curtain. Sounds of toilet seats slamming in other rooms throughout the night. Battery cover on back of TV remote was missing....batteries kept falling out. Waited 20 mins for breakfast once we ordered... when it came out, my omelette, toast, and home fries were ice cold. When I checked out of the hotel, I was asked how our stay was. I responded by saying "It could've been better". The reply from the girl behind the counter..."Looks like you reserved through a 3rd party, so I can't give you a receipt". What? You don't want to ask why I didn't enjoy my stay? Overall a very unpleasant experience.
10.0 Excellent
