We liked the hotel in general and were pleased with the location, staff, and features others have listed. The snack kitchen was a hit and added comfort to the stay. Our only complaint within the family was the beds need to be updated. They were rather lumpy and sagged a bit. We were not told of the shuttle to get... More

We spent the last night of our trip here. It is north of the town centre on the main highway towards Washington. Our room was reasonably large and comfortable. There was a courtesy bus to the down town area which we used to go out to dinner in the evening. ( I don't think there was a restaurant in the... More

Hotel is a little older than what I stay in these days and has that feel. Room is a little smaller, but not small and while not fancy has been updated and is clean and very comfortable. LCD TV was 37", new and had a good quality picture. The bedding was surprisingly good, with a decent mattress and pillows and... More

This hotel makes me feel very homely, and comfortable. I totally adore the Kitchen. It was stocked up with snacks, soup, instant noodles, drinks, ice cream, cofffee machine. And you are welcome to get anything you want. Utensiles, hot water, oven etc are also ready. Room is spacious, super king size bed (too big for me), wired internet access, work... More

The owners say they want you to feel at home -- complete with a stocked kitchen to raid for a midnight snack (or anytime) -- for free. It's unbelievable! Actually, the selection in that kitchen makes home a lot less appealing to return to -- at least as far as snacks are concerned! Breakfast at the hotel was good. Sheets... More

Very pleasant experience. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to help. Breakfast ended at 9:30 AM, but when I and other late-rising guests straggled down at 9:10 AM, the staff brought out new hot trays of sausage, eggs and other items, and didn't chase us out of the breakfast room. They also have a snack room... More

I needed an "overnight hotel" after arriving at Reagan International.and this fit the need perfectly. Was walking distance to a quaint Italian restaurant. Parking was well lite and close to entrance of hotel. Staff was available, very pleasant and very helpful. Complimentary breakfast was better than average. The room was small, clean but not remarkable in visual attributes. The bathroom... More

If you are looking for a clean hotel that is close to the DC Metro, at a fair price, witha very helpful friendly staff, free parking, a very good complimentary breakfast, free shuttle around Alexandria and a 24/7 free snack kitchen (with drinks, ice cream, chips, cookies, soups and fruit) this hotel will be a great fit for you.

With most of the city booked for the evening, I took a chance on the Old Colony...every aspect of my stay far exceeded my expectations! The hospitality at check-in was superb, and I found the entire property very clean and well maintained. I also found the value to be unbelievable! The property is obviously well managed.

This was our first trip with our very young kids. We were nervous about travelling, but the staff here made everything great. They let us check in early, and check out late. There were free snacks and beverages upstairs. King St. is about a 10 minute walk from this hotel, but it wasn't a massive deal. Parking is free, and... More
