The Motel 6 Washington, DC in Takoma is very nice and extremely affordable. My fiance & I stayed there last year around this same time and we paid $77 for 1 night in a room w/ one queen sized bed, which is an amazing price in my opinion. The room was clean (including the bathroom) & didn't smell. My only complaint was that they advertised as having cable television but many of the cable channels would not work. Hope this helps!!
