Have stayed here many times, family trips and business. Clean, simple, reliable, good location, easy parking. Pleasant walk into Old Town for restaurants, sight-seeing, shopping. Shuttle available too. Nice, appetizing, clean, varied, complimentary breakfast buffet by Mary and colleagues. Highly recommend.

Staff members at the Old Colony Inn were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is sumptuous, healthy and tasty. Nice subtle decor in the room and throughout the hotel.The shuttle service is incredibly convenient -- no need to figure out how to drive in busy Alexandria traffic! All in all we had a very pleasant stay.

Hotel is extremely convenient for business or pleasure in the area. It is a popular property that is often sold out. Its easy to reach from National Airport. Shuttle service to Metro provides access to all of the DC metro region. Front desk staff is extremely helpful and polite. Clean and a real value for the area.

We arrived at the Best Western hotel in Arlington Va on a Thursday afternoon and stayed through Sunday morning. APPEARANCE~ as we drove up to the hotel, we loved the colonial look of the hotel, lots of brick and a open archway, with a nice porch on the front. We loved the benches, and especially the rocking chair. With the... More

Good value for the money. Location in the DC area very good if you have a car. Free shuttle to Metro and elsewhere or those who don't. Would recommend for those on a budget looking for a clean, safe place to stay.

The room had new, comfortable bed/bedding. The staff was friendly and efficient. The hotel offers a free shuttle to area attractions. We had a very quiet, comfortable sleep! This was our second stay at this hotel with an equally good experience.

Room is a little dated, which seems appropriate that it is the "old colony". Cozy and comfortable. BW status recognized at check-in. Usually stay in DC but the hotel rates were crazy as I had visited when Pope Francis was in town. Breakfast is included and adequate. Shuttle service to the Metro station is great, but my gripe is that... More

This is a great place to stay if you're in DC. The rooms are not fancy, but the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are a little spartan and my tv was not working very well, but it's unlikely you'll be spending much time in the room. The location is great, very close to Old Town Alexandria, but also right off... More
