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

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

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.

Since my previous review of about a year ago I have stayed at this location several times so I think I should update the review based on experience since then. As other reviewers indicate, this hotel is not "fancy" - but if you are looking for a clean well-run place with a very good staff, great location, and very good... More

This place is about as bare bones as you get. No elevator, one main entrance (the exits on both sides of the motel lead you to the outside with no hope getting back in- a bit sketchy feeling)- THe hallways are freezing- there is no restaurant or pool-just great proximity to Washington DC. I didn't come for the sights but... More

The hotel staff at this Best Western are the most helpful group. They were welcoming, accommodating, and just as pleasant as any place I've stayed. They were professional yet went out of their way to make us feel like family. We had a small baby and they lugged cribs and luggage, well outside of their realm of responsibilities. The best!
