Ah, I just went through looking up storage places. All the reviews on Yelp for local storage facilities are pretty terrible. I ended up going with Public Storage near Pentagon City in Arlington, right off 395. Pros: long hours, climate controlled, easy to drive to. Cons: the place is flithy – there’s flies, cobwebs, birds, and spiders eveywhere. Also they don’t use metal doors on their units, it’s just drywall or something.
I looked into the Extra Storage Space on U Street & 15th NW but their hours are very inconvenient, and their units are expensive and not climate controlled.
There were several storage places out in Bethesda that seemed nice, but the location was too far for me.
I only have to keep my stuff in storage for a few months so I’m OK with Public Storage for now. However if you need a unit for a few years I would not recommend them. Definitely look into the storage places in Bethesda.
