Exceptional 10.0
very nice
A very nice place for me to stay for three days while I attended a conference in D.C..It was very clean and comfortable and cozy and quiet and in a nice location. Jack is very friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay again. It is an old house, with a little chipped paint and creaky stairs for people who care about that sort of thing.

Very Good 8.0
Nice rooming house with some significant issues
This is a pretty nice rooming house. The manager was very nice. Rooms are pretty and homey, with a bunch of books on the shelf. Fresh fruit and cookies were a nice touch. Issues: (1) in my room #301, the toilet was very small - perfect for an 8-10 year old, but not for someone over 6' tall. (2) There were no electrical outlets a reasonable distance from the desk or other horizontal surface, so I had to move the bed in order to plug in anything - an extension cord would have been helpful. The biggest issue: why was Fox news on the downstairs TV all the time? Please leave the TV off, unless there are people actively watching!

Incredibly considerate and friendly host.
My wife and I have a newborn at home in our apartment, so we had my sister and niece stay here. They were made to feel incredibly at home and it was really convenient. I cannot recommend the considerateness and friendliness of our host more!
