Underdelivers on the promise of B&B
The value proposition of a B&B is quite simple, at least in theory: Offer your guest the space and comfort for a good night's rest and pamper them with a nice breakfast in the morning. Sadly, Woodley Park Guest House underdelivers on both. My room, on the lower level, was pretty much in the basement with only small windows (facing a wall) on the upper portion of the wall. Worse yet, the vintage of the building meant that I could hear every movement of the person(s) above me, waking me up several times over the course of the night. The weird AC system, blowing all night despite moderate temperatures, presumably to combat mold, also did not help. And guests cannot control the system. Still, I woke up optimistic in the morning, assuming that the kind of yummy breakfast I've come to expect from B&Bs would make up for at least some of these shortcomings. Boy was I wrong. Breakfast was shockingly basic, with a couple of types of bread, two types of jam, a small bowl of fruit (to share), some yoghurt, and a variety of cereals. Forget cheese, forget cold cuts, etc. There was only one "hot entree", oatmeal on my first morning and pancakes on the second. The selection of juice and teas was seriously limited and decaf coffee was only served on demand. Frankly, you can get a better breakfast staying at a mid-range motel these days.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Pretty nice.
Great location, the facility is in pretty good shape. But it doesn't quite have the host/hostess-y aspect of a true B&B, and some unhelpful attitude on the part of one staffer (the young lady) didn't help. A nice experience, but not quite what you'd hope for given the price.

Excellent guest house, The only minor thing that could be improved was the breakfast. More food choices and eggs that are not cooked too long (extremely hardboiled eggs with dark edges of the yolk) would be great. The location is fantastic.
