  • Clean and I liked the panoramic view from the shower in the room I stayed in. Stayed there for 4 nights and only had a room mate for 1. Nicely positioned downtown and walking distance from many attractions such as White House and museums. wi-fi signal was bad in my room and had always to go downstairs for good signal, thats the only thing I found irritating.

  • It was really a pleasant place to lay my head. I appreciated the soap/shampoo/conditioner dispenser in the bathroom (as I forgot to pack them). I can't believe there weren't more people there, but I'll take it!

  • Canal Inn was very clean, modern and quiet; the photos posted online were very accurate. It was great lodging for the money and area. Though they advertise having free wi-fi, I was not able to find or connect to their wi-fi for most of my stay. When I did find it, the connection was spotty at best. When I first checked in, it took the staff a while to answer the door (might have been only 1 person on duty?). Aside from that, the staff was pretty responsive to whatever questions/requests I had.

  • The only problem I had was when I was trying to check in. I arrived and there was a sign on the door to call, so I did. I ended up having to wait over an hour before I was able to get in and get a room. Aside from that, the room was very clean and comfortable. There was a TV in the room which I was not expecting. The location was convenient and within walking distance to several restaurant. Overall for the price it was one of the best places to stay.

  • I booked our stay in Washington, D.C. one week prior to our departure and was happy to find the Canal Inn Hostel in lovely Georgetown. As we arrived at night (12.30 am), we were relieved to finally find our hostel, but when we got there no one was available. Calling a hostel-related number, I got to know that no one had received our reservation though I had a reservation number, and my travel buddies and I were left "homeless" in D.C. for the night which is not acceptable.

  • I booked 6-female dorm but they put me in 2-bed dorm, and nobody else checked in. Fabulous! The room's very nice, breakfast was just okay, but Georgetown cupcake is so close so it really doesn't matter.
