Clean, friendly, and a good value. Free breakfast was satisfying and varied. The shuttle was very convenient and the driver had helpful suggestions. Easy shuttle to Metro station to DC. Service was excellent. Giant grocery store, restaurants within easy walk/shuttle ride. Would definitely stay there again!

Price wasn't bad for mid-July and the fact that parking, in room Wifi and breakfast were all free! Staff was friendly and helpful. The shuttle to King Street was quick & convenient. Traveling alone with the kids I doubt I'll come back to this hotel. No elevator to the 2nd floor, no pool and it was a little tricky to... More

We enjoyed the decor, and charm of this "Old style" Alexandria hotel. The service and the amenities make it appealing. The information& map we received upon leaving were excellent. I would definitely recommend Old Colony Inn.

Beds clean and comfortable. No microwave or frig. Great shuttle service to metro station. Really nice hot breakfast, each day changing b/t eggs, omelets, bacon, sausage,... More

We stayed at the Old Colony Inn for 5 nights in May, 2014. The location was excellent. We parked the car and didn't need it until we left. The shuttle took us to and from the Metro station which we used to sightsee and go to a Nationals ballgame. The hotel is a little dated, by that I mean small... More

I stayed four night in the Best Western Old Colony Inn on my trip to the D.C. area. The hotel is conveniently located just 5 Miles from the National Mall. A scheduled shuttle bus connects the hotel with Braddock Road Metro station; on the way back I had to call the hotel for a shuttle, which arrived minutes after the... More

We stayed at this Best Western for 5 days while sightseeing the Washington DC area. The location is very convenient to the subway into DC and also close to the night life on King Street. We have two small children 7 and 3. Normally we opt for the suite when staying at a hotel, but for some reason this Best... More

We had a pleasant stay at this hotel. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of towels, air conditioning competent. The electric outlet for the lamp was an extension cord that came through the wall... I requested a cot when I reserved, but it wasn't in the room - we had to ask for it. Staff are very pleasant, breakfast choices... More

I have stayed here several times, but this will be last one. Rooms are ok, but bathroom is pretty bad and does not appear to be properly maintained. Skip the breakfast - it is not worth it. If you rely on the shuttle to take you to the subway, tell the front desk: The information sheet in the room may... More

Bente J, I just wanted to let you know that we do take our comments from our guest very seriously. Yes we know our bathrooms are dated and we have stared renovations on them this month.
