Hotels Near College Park Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Quality Inn
Why: Under $100 Per Night, Walk to the Metro

There are two options for hotels nearby the College Park Metro station. Neither are compelling and stand out. We suggest looking into hotels near the Shady Grove Metro over either of these options near College Park. As for which hotel is best we suggest looking at the Quality Inn. This budget minded hotel will satisfy forgiving guests who simply want an affordable place to sleep. Rates here can average below $100 and that is an awfully good rate for DC. Still because most often reviews are less than flattering we would urge you to look into either hotels near the Shady Grove station, or the Hampton Inn close to the Greenbelt Metro station. Greenbelt is the next station north after College Park. Since the nearby Marriott is not walkable to Metro and doesn’t offer a shuttle we recommend evaluating the Quality Inn as a first choice. The Quality Inn is a value considering parking free, wifi and breakfast are provided. Just don’t rush to book this place without looking at nearby options.
