Rated 1 out of 5 by AT75 The "aton"
We were not quite sure what to expect when we pulled up the the "aton" as we called it because the sign was half lit on arrival. That in a nut shell would sum up the remainder of our stay. Everything was halfway...for instance in speaking with one of the engineers about a door lock problem I quized him about the renovations and he proudly said all the rooms had been renovated. Ok if you call putting in a new standup light and sitting chair and a coat of paint renovated then hats off to the most pathetic renovation of all time. Overall the hotel was dirty, the toilet seat, headboard, phones, nightstands and dresser desk combo was from the 1980's. The bathroom tile was not bad but the install job was 3rd rate. The thermostat in the room did not work and when I asked the engineer he said its probably the battery and went about his day. The only saving grace was the waitress in the restaurant Sunday night after our hockey game...She was extremely efficient and helpful and the food was good.

The hotel is end construction in the lobby and other areas and it made check-in and getting in and out of the hotel a hassle

Rated 3 out of 5 by QLS5674 Renovation needs to be disclosed
If the Hotel is being renovated it should state so on the web site when booking through SPG. I got there and the foyer was being redone, real disappointment for a frequent traveler. If you are going to be inconvenienced like this add some more points to your guest for the disappoinment.

When I made the reservation online I called and i verified that they had me down for a 11 o'clock check-in. Well I showed up at noon and there was no rooms available. The front desk clerk had an attitude and told me I would have to wait until 2pm. After I started to look for another hotel on my phone that's when he found me another room.
They are doing construction. There is no mention of this in the lobby. Lovely hearing hammering and sawing above your head when you are trying to get an afternoon nap.
Called down to the front desk to ask for carryout options and I was rudely told that I could order from room service. I told them that I did not want room service and asked what was in the area and I was put on hold for 10 minutes.
The room is great and spacious. Bed is fantastic. Customer service is awful. Pack patience.

This visit was not my first to the area or to this hotel. This is my preferred place to stay when visiting the MD/DC Metro area, especially for more than one day. It is centrally located allowing for access to DC via the Metro or to parts of Maryland by a short drive. For example, on this trip I had meetings as far away as Rockville, Frederick, Columbia, and Baltimore, as well as closer stops in College Park, Greenbelt, Silver Spring, and Laurel. The hotel is not new but it is always well kept, clean and comfortable and apparently renovated frequently. The restaurant on site is small but decent. No other options within walking distance but a lot of eating places within a 5 minute drive. Consistent in performance and a great value for the location.

The room was clean, however we had to call the front desk for a light bulb on a lamp that blew and a second call was made because there was no hair dryer. We expected a mini fridge in the room but there was none.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GAP2014 Great hotel
Kudos to your staff, they were all very welcoming, professional and pleasant.
The rooms were clean and a great nights sleep was had by my family. We woke to a great Sunday brunch and ready for travel.
After reading some negative reviews about this hotel I can refute them, this hotel is working to improve on any previous short coming and to maintain Sheraton"s good name.
Thank you Sheraton

I was pleased with this Sheraton property, after reading several negative reviews I didn't know what to expect, but because of the location to our event, it was best for us.
The rooms were clean and the sweet sleeper beds and pillows provided an excellent nights rest.
The workout room had everything necessary for a great workout.
The location of this hotel is also excellent it was easily seen from I-95, none of that beltway traffic.
Lastly there is an AMC movie theater on the same lot.
I would definitely recommend this hotel

I just had the pleasure of spending two nights at this Sheraton property. I had a wonderful greeting at the Metro stop outside of Washington D.C. where I was greeted by an attentive Sheraton employee. I was then welcomed to the hotel by Catherine at the front desk who had upgraded me to a corner room with king bed and made sure to advise me that the "Club Floor" was still open. The next morning I was greeted by Imee the host had the Club who had set up the lounge very well. Thank you staff at the Sheraton, Beltsville, MD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BNajy Great Stay! Great Pet friendly hotel!
It made Parents' Weekend at CUA wonderful! Our son missed the family dog, Maya, so we found this great hotel that allowed us to bring her at no extra cost! We were on the 8th floor and we brought our crate. Our son was thrilled to see Maya! Parents weekend was a success! See you during Thanksgiving week!

This was my third time staying at this hotel. The location is excellent and it is a very good hotel, albeit a bit on the older side.
When I return to this area, I will look to stay at this hotel again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BigJohnD Great Location / Great Staff BUT Hotel is long in the tooth
When travelling on business finding a hotel within walking distance to your destination is a very nice treat.
So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that this hotel was but a couple hundred feet from my meeting location.
I will say the staff were very professional and did the best job possible under difficult conditions.
The facilities are certainly showing their, with serious stains on all the carpets, from the lobby, to the hallways, and most seriously my room.
The other issue was the TV, once again the staff was incredibly responsive to my issue of the intermittent TV signal, but on investigation it was determined to be a satellite reception for the entire hotel.
Food was very good in both the club lounge and the Powder Mill Cafe and the staff in each were great.
At the end of the day, the hotel needs to hire the services of a serious carpet cleaning company and improve some basic infrastructure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Musicologist Underrated property
There are many rather mediocre reviews of this property on TripAdvisor, but I can't understand why. I loved my room and loved the beds, which were very comfortable and offered a very good night's sleep. The staff was excellent, and the food in the café was very good for the reasonable price that was charged. I suppose the only disadvantage for me was the long distance from downtown DC, but of course there was a shuttle.

Being a member of SPG I have stayed at several different Sheraton around the northeast and northwest. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I just think the up keep of the hotel hallway could use some cleaning. I also requested a rollaway and was told it wasn’t offer at this hotel. Once in the room I could see why as the room were too small for a rollaway. I also had dinner at the hotel restaurant the night I arrived. The food was great but service was horrible. We waited for 45 minutes for the food to be bought out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mackles41 "average" hotel, but multiple in-room issues
Hotel was fine until you get to the room and try to do anything. I was in town for a family funeral, but had I been there for business I would have canceled the room and stayed elsewhere. It was a waste of my starpoints, for sure.
- The AC barely worked. Room never reached comfortable temp.
- The wifi barely worked, slow and spotty, and I think I actually had to pay for it.
- The cable came in and out even though the weather was perfect.
- There were stains in the carpets - some old and some looked new and never cleaned.
Again, had I stayed more than one night or had this been a business trip, I wouldn't have stayed. I will not stay there in the future and this hotel continues to muddy the sheraton brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BittittitterSweeeeeeeeeet Better the second time.
I wrote a nasty review last time because, well the hotel was nasty. This time the staff was friendly and attentive. The room was clean. and there were no cigarette butts in the gym. I was at this hotel for business and it met all of my needs.
I am a firm believer that if you are willing to complain, you should also be willing to mention good service. This trip the service was good.
There is always room for improvement, but this hotel made great strides since my last stay. I would stay again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MrsFou I EXPECTED MORE FROM A SHERTON
The safes in the room did not work. I called the front desk and it could not be fixed because the hotel was waiting for a piece that was on back order. The front desk did not have earphones for the gym, because they were on back order. It also took more than ten minutes to check out, because upon check in the desk clerk did not give me the Birthday promotion rate, which I booked on line. Last but not least, I asked a housekeeper in the hall for one wash cloth and the only thing she kept yelling is called the front desk because I am finish with my rooms. I saw she had towels but she refused to give me a towel. Thank you, but no thank you, my family who was their for a family reunion will not be back. There are two many other brands that gives quality and exceptional customer service.

Least desirable Sheraton I have ever stayed in. The carpet was stained and decor was beat-up. Location was out of the way with few amenities near by. On site bar/restaurant was not great. I'm not going back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mmw1945 Great sleep but everything else was lacking.
The sleeping room was great. Especially excellent was the lack of odor from cleaning products! It was well laid out. Appreciate fridge
and microwave in room. There were signs of wear here and throughout the hotel (peeling wallpaper, worn chairs). The Club Lounge was small, often too full of people in the morning. Food options were poor. The restaurant breakfast had few food options. Its appearance was very poor and there was extremely loud music (of poor taste) playing constantly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ryan6565 Dirty and needs major updating
Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights for a conference accross the street. I was very unimpressed. The floors in my room and throughout the hallways were stained and very dirty. The sheets were very rough and uncomfortable. The bed and pillows must have been 20 years old....I didn't get a good night sleep in 5 nights. They had large groups of people arrive throughout the week that allowed their kids to run up and down the hallways at all hours of the night. Overall, this place was terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikeb30 Sheraton College Park is ideal
My daughter was in town from Seattle for a National Basketball Tourney @ the Washington Convention Center and I found this hotel to be ideal... It's proximity to downtown D.C and the National park was ideal and the room rate per night was very attractive. The hotel's facility (room, fitness center, hotel staff) were very accommodating for my needs and I felt very comfortable. Next time I'm in D.C, I will definitely have the Sheraton College Park as my #1 choice to stay

Rated 3 out of 5 by carehawk Great staff, room needs to be updated
Our stay was good - 2 adults & 2 teens, the staff was wonderful. We went to the club lounge every morning and some evenings, and a very hard working employee named Imme was always there making sure we had everything we needed. The wi-fi in the room was very weak, and I often could not even connect to it without standing by the bathroom door in our room. The bathtub had a hole in it & water was going in (I can only imagine the problems it will cause). The room had some updates (bedding was nice, TV was nice, furniture was nice), and some things that really needed updating (bathroom floor, carpets, bathtub). Pool is outside only. Overall, it was a good stay. No major complaints. With traffic, it will take you at least an hour to get into the center of DC.
