had a great stay here, though only there for one night. just on the edge of old town, a little hard to get to if you don't know where you're going. Loved the snack kitchen and the free parking (most old town hotels charge $20+ per night), also liked that it had fewer rooms than most other places. Was in... More

Good neighborhood, mostly very kind employees, fabulous snack kitchen, hot breakfast, clean. Guests are inconsiderate by slamming doors, but that's not the hotel's fault. There are no closers on the doors, so it is totally the guests lack of concern for others.

The staff was nice and courteous. My only complaint was that I asked for an early AM wake up call and it was not made. My phone was supposed to ring at 5:30 and it did not. Fortunately I woke up on my own to catch my early morning flight.

The rooms are average, no frills, no refrigerator in room, old fashioned heaters. We stayed 4 nights in November 2012. A shuttle was always around to take us to the Metro, which is close by, also took us to dinner. Grocery store is only two blocks away. Breakfast was fine. The snacks available in the kitchen were outstanding. It made... More

This hotel is a decent old place. For an overnight-er, this is a good find. The room is not new but managed to be clean. There's coffee/tea maker in the room, iron and board, blow dryer, and nice channel selection on tv... but the big PLUS, and what everybody is delighted about, is the open kitchen on the second floor....

We stayed 2 nights in November. This is a really nice hotel in a real nice part of town. Very convenient as well as it is located at the end of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. A very easy drive to Arlington National Cemetery. It is also located close to the Braddock Road Metrorail station and they have a shuttle... More

Great staff!! Suzanna, the desk clerk, was top notch. She and the shuttle drivers made the stay on outstanding experience. We did not have to drive anywhere. Excellent restaurants were nearby as was the Metro station into DC (round trip tickets were $6.10) and the drivers at the motel were available almost immediately and responded quickly when we called for...

We stayed at the Old Colony during the first week of November, 2012. Room was clean, service was great, location could not be better and for the price, at great deal in the Washington area. Breakfast, snack room, shuttle and free parking combined with the friendly staff make the hotel a wonderful value. I certainly would recommend this hotel to... More

This motel was ideally located in a very nice area of town, only a few stops from the middle of the city by subway. The motel staff organise a shuttle to drop people at the station or the King Street restaurants, and pick up just by a simple phone call. We didn't drive at all for two days. Staff were... More
