The walls at this hotel were paper thin and the noises will keep you up if you're a light sleeper like me. Request a room away from the parking lot or you'll have lights coming in to your room throughout your stay. The breakfast is a precooked cheese omelette and a bulk cooked bacon of which the middle section was... More

The hotel is located in quiet residential area, the excellent shuttle service provides hassle free access to the restaurants, metro and Torpedo Factory. The staff is excellent and very helpful. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Would return.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel! First, although we travel several times each year, I must say the staff here was exceptional. Kevin checked us in, and, although I've run across lots of great staff checking into various hotels, his attitude and helpfulness were beyond anything I've encountered. I LOVED the location of this hotel! It's tucked away... More

Great Best Western with great staff and nice breakfast spread and fitness room and plenty of parking. Near old city and also a nice walk to where my daughter lives in Del Ray in Alexandria. The reception staff were extremely helpful, the rooms were spacious with very comfortable beds, the breakfast was more than the advertised continental breakfast.

Thank you for the review. The hotel is located out of the city but we offer a free shuttle to Old Alexandria and many shops and restaurants for your eating pleasure. It is nice you can walk to your daughter's home. Please come back anytime you are in the area. More

We visited DC for New Years Eve and attending a friend's wedding, and decided to stay in Alexandria for First Night celebrations. The hotel staff were friendly and attentive, accomodations were spacious and modern, the bed was comfortable, and the location was a convenient walk to King St and the metro station. Breakfast was not great (a standard American buffet... More

The room is like the name of the hotel (Old), it needs renovation. Breakfast is ok but some food are over cook. Nice staff when check-in. Location is ok, less than 15 min drive to museums but it is hard to find it as it is inside a residential area. The in-room internet is dead, I try so long and... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts. Yes, the hotel is ageing and it is scheduled for a full renovation in the very near future. I had the internet company out to look at the internet but do not have a reason why you had an issue. I do hope if in the area again you... More

This was a very nice and quiet place to stay for a weekend get away to see some live music in the D.C. area. The hotel is located near some nice parks along the water. It was very quiet and peaceful. The staff was very nice and professional which enhanced our stay.

Conveniently located between the Old Town area (about a 25 minute walk), the Braddock Street Metro station (about a 15 minute walk) and Reagan National Airport. The hotel has a shuttle that will take you to and from all three locations. Rooms are comfortable for the price. There is no ice machine available but the staff provides ice in plastic... More
