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.

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

The Skyline is a classic mom and pop motel, with excellent accomodations for a short term stay. The rooms are small with a comfortable bed, small fridge and microwave, a small HD tv, and comfortable easy chair. but, most importantly spotlessly clean and fresh. All rooms are smokefree.and unlike some motels, this has been the case long enough for smoke... More

We located this place using freestyle selection when Kayak only showed motels costing more than we were willing to pay. Alexandria is a busy tourist area, and this was the weekend before the 4th. We headed into town and spotted their sign. The motel is on a side street, which is quiet, and back from the road. There is especially... More

I haven't actually stayed here - I simply tried to make a reservation. I called ahead in April for a reservation in July. The man who answered told me he would not take a reservation for 'that far in advance'. How is that possible when July is the high season? I was told he had no reservation book yet and... More
