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

We stayed three nights on a recent visit to Washington. We were made very welcome on arriving and our room was very clean and contained everything we needed. Breakfast was good with all the usual hot and cold items you would expect. The breakfast room was always clean, though a bit of a walk to get to it from our... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast had everything you could possibly want and the coffee was outstanding. We had access to complimentary snacks and that was a real treat - they even had ice cream! The shuttle to and from the Metro was... More

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Old Colony Inn Sept. 30 departing Oct 4, 2012. We arrived after dark and had a little trouble finding the hotel but after a couple of passes by we saw the Best Western sign. The hotel isn't actually on North Washington but on a parallel street (E. Abingdon) right where North... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Very friendly, helpful staff, checked us in early. Really appreciated the shuttle service to and from the Metro. Loved the snack room, so there was no need to pick up munchies on our way home. Room was clean and comfy. If you're looking for a place that is close to all the DC sights, I would... More

We wanted a hotel close to Old Town as well as the church our son attends and this delightful hotel fit the bill! I don't know when we have stayed in a friendlier hotel where everyone truly seemed to enjoy making visitors welcome! We arrived a couple of hours before check-in and went in to ask if we could park... More
