We were extremely satisfied with all aspects of our stay. "Old Town" location is wonderful and flexibility of shuttle to be able to utilize local sites was outstanding. The entire staff was Professional and Responsive throughout the stay. The complimentary breakfasts were varied on a daily basis while still maintaining a standard bill of fare for those who appreciated the... More

My family found this hotel to be wonderful for the cost. I was worried that for the price I was going to be disappointed, but I was wrong. The staff were super friendly. The breakfast was a nice benefit. The shuttle to and from the shuttle was wonderful. Just a great experience!

As most have posted, the hotel was a little outdated - no ice machine and elevator to the upper floor and a little hard to get to with no turns along the GW Parkway. However, the staff treated us well. Even though our room did not have a refridgerator (my wife needed it to keep her insulin cold) - they... More

We chose this hotel based upon the reviews here. Our purpose for our trip was to visit Old Town. It was advertised as 6 blocks from King street and having shuttle service. If you come in from Washington Street from King Street, and you fail to veer to the right, you will miss the property, and there and NO TURN... More

From the website and even the outside, this place looks cute and colonial. However it's clear that things haven't been updated or replaced in ages, and not in a cute, charming way, in a worn down, crappy way. Had to pay an extra fed for a mini fridge which I found to be ridiculous, and there's not even ice machine,... More

Blr531, I am so sorry to hear about your experience. You are absolutely right that if you don't feel it's clean then you start to wonder. We are an older property but we do keep our rooms clean. I am taking what you said back to my housekeeping department and we will use this to train our staff better. Please... More

We have been staying at Best Western's now for about 3 years. We usually stay at a Best Western when we travel to Plymouth, MA to visit family members. So I am familiar with their free breakfast and other amenities at Best Westerns. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the Old Colony Best Western, I was dissappointed to find that there... More

Linda B, I want to thank you for giving us a review. I understand that you were disappointed in not having a refrigerator or microwave in your room. I know that a lot of hotels have these in their rooms now days. This is something we are looking into as well. As far as the furniture in the lobby goes... More

My son and I stayed here during a Spring Break college visit. The rooms were cheaper than hotels in D.C. proper, so we were willing to make some sacrifices to location. The staff was very courteous, especially the shuttle driver, Woody. The hotel has shuttle service to the airport, the Braddock Metro stop and within a 2-mile radius of the... More

I stayed for one night with my family during a road trip while I am passing through Alexandria and the hotel was not hard to find, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I got a room on the second floor and the only problem was that there was no elevator for guests but only one for handicap people. Additional... More

Best Western Old Colony Inn was the perfect place to stay for our Washington D.C. vacation. The hotel is just moments away from Braddock Road Metro stop (and with the free shuttle service there is no need to worry!) and then a short trip on the Yellow line to the center of D.C. The best part was that we got... More

We got to the hotel real late around 3 AM. It is best for the value rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing it had everything one can ask for in breakfast. We enjoyed our stay minutes away from DC.
