We get to Alexandria every year and stay here - low cost, we can park in front of our room and it's clean and neat. We stayed in #10 (of 12) and it had new a hardwood laminate floor, new tile floor in the bathroom and new tile all around the bathroom - including a stone counter and new sink.... More

This is not a fancy place, but if you're looking for something cheap and clean, this will work just fine. Friendly staff, comfortable beds and a quiet area. The motel is a bit dated, but that's just fine with me.

This place is where you go to sleep & shower & thats about it. Its pet friendly which is a plus. Super cheap & easy to find. You may want to bring your own towels bc the ones provided are very small & thin. Free wifi is a plus. Bigger bed would of been nice. Has micro wave. Cheap, clean,... More

Stayed one night in Sept 2014, very nice and clean room, I liked that there was laminate flooring rather than carpet. Room also has a small fridge and microwave, no coffee pot though. The bed was comfortable and nice feather pillows. We were on the motorcycle so it is nice to park the bike right outside the door!! Good location... More

You can step back into time by staying at the Skyline Motel, just a few blocks outside the center of town. From parking right outside your room, to the vintage '50's tiles in the bathroom, just the necessities are available for your overnight stay: small room with reasonably comfortable bed; a chair, table, and small television complete the scene. Internet... More

The Skyline is what budget travelers are looking for - inexpensive lodging that's clean and convenient. The Skyline is off the highway a bit and so it's very quiet. It's the old in-line type of motel so you park right in front of your room. Rooms are dated, but large and clean. The bath is tight with some nice retro... More

Spent a night here after seeing good reviews here on Trip Advisor. After being on the road for three weeks and staying in a lot of chain hotels this place was a welcome reprieve. It's the kind of motel that takes one back in time, letting the mind and soul relax from the busy pace of these days. Everything was... More

Wish we could have found a place this clean (even the windowsills), quiet, and convenient on the rest of our 6 week trip heading west! The owners were very nice and helpful for directions to local attractions.

I found the place to be clean and very quiet. The location was great close enough to the interstate for easy access, yet far enough away so I didn't hear road noise. Fairly close to restaurants. Great price, all I needed for a one night stay.

I had to stay here for an extended amount of time for work. The place was recommended to me by a friend, but I was still skeptical as I typically stay in the big chain hotel/motels. This place was amazing. The room was clean, the location was great, the mattress seemed almost new (I am one of those who checks... More
