The location makes getting to get to Crystal City and Reagan airport a short drive. The rooms are a little older but CLEAN. Clean is important to me. Breakfast had the usual choices including eggs, waffles, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc. The staff was friendly.

I have never written a hotel review before, and we are a family who go for vacation at least 3 times every year. We always look for budget hotels and cleanliness is the top most criteria in our requirement. Our daughter found this one for us for our recent trip to DC. I am so thankful and happy for her... More

Good location with shuttle to Old Town Alexandria and environs. Nice breakfast, hotel dated but clean with helpful staff. No ice machine but bags if ice available in freezer. Internet was fair. Quiet, set back from main road on a little side road.

The Old Colony Inn is in an excellent location to the Smithsonian in DC & shuttle service is offered to the closest Metro Station. This was a huge plus instead of driving & finding parking. Some folks had to wait 30 minutes to be picked up at the Metro station but we didn't have that experience. The shuttle will also... More

The hotel was comfortable and clean. It is close to Washington DC, Arlington National Cemetery and downtown Alexandria. The staff is helpful and courteous. The shuttle service is adequate and the driver courteous and helpful.

For the value, this hotel is fine, but the rooms are small. Double beds, small vanity area. Breakfast is fine. Wifi did not work while we were there. The free parking is great, and certainly helpful in that area.

It is close to DC and reasonable priced but the rooms have probably not been updated for about 15 yrs. Very big crack in the ceiling and more than a steady drip from the bathtub faucet that couldn't be shut off.

Our family of 4 was visiting Washington DC and we wanted to stay close, but not in DC. We found the hotel to be a nice and clean place to stay. The metro station was a bit far, but the shuttle took us there and came quickly when we called for a return ride. We had no problem finding the... More

Our recent stay at Best Western Old Country Inn in Alexandria was not an over all pleasant experience and has caused me to write a bad review for the first time. We consider ourselves well traveled and have stayed in many hotels owned by many different corporations across the country but have never had an experience like this one. We... More
