I am thinking about taking a road trip from Boston to GA and stopping in DC for a day or two. I am looking for any sort of recommendation for affordable hotels near DC. We are willing to take the Metro to get around town and I think it would be easier on the budget if we were not right inside DC. Any recommendations? I'm asking on the Dis because you all rock We're looking for a safe neighborhood too obviously, I stress this because you can find an affordable hotel NEAR Boston but not in any neighborhood I'd necessarily want to spend the night in with my children. TIA!!
