First time in DC w/family of 4. Looking for an affordable hotel with basic amenities that would provide easy access to DC.The Old Colony Inn is the place! Yes, it is an older property and the rooms are smaller than most newer hotels but everything is well maintained. Beds were very comfortable; free breakfast was great - they continued to... More

Tired after a long delayed flight and called to let them know. They were relaxed and helped us find a great place for dinner and directions there. Next day the shuttle driver took us to the Metro and gave us great tips on doing DC. Picked us up just as he promised and advised us about dinner in downtown Alexandria.... More

The hotel was small and quiet and conveniently located to the Old Town area and the airport. The room was clean, but we received no maid service on our first day. I had to ask for towels. The shuttle service was nice. . .but the drivers really didn't seem willing to answer questions about restaurants or attractions in the area.... More

This is an older hotel but they have kept it up well. I love the charm and best of all its location! We flew into Reagan (DCA) airport and were at the hotel in under 10 minutes. It's a quick trip over to historic old town and there's a Trader Joes less than a half mile away! You can be... More

There were really good things about this hotel, nice location, neat and tidy, decent breakfast, free and regular shuttle to King Street/airport/metro, free 24hr coffee, and afternoon cookies lots of free parking. But it all seemed to be held together on a wing and a prayer, the staff didn't ever really seem to know what was happening. Our room didn't... More

The chair in my room had obvious liquid stains on it. The staff were friendly and kindly accepted my cancelation even though I had to forfeit one night... More

Nice hotel with free shuttle to Old Town Alexandria and the metro station. Hotel rooms are clean and comfy, but very basic. There was no fridge in the room. The hotel is in a nice, safe neighborhood, so you can walk back to the hotel (20 minutes from Old Town) in case you miss the last shuttle, which is at... More

My husband and I picked this hotel because it was reasonably priced and we usually have good luck with Best Westerns. This was a decent hotel. It's small, only 49 rooms with no pool or hot tub. I wasn't aware of that when I made the reservation, but that was my error. It is free, self parking, and we were... More
