We came because of the great rates, free parking, and proximity to everything (Alexandria and DC). The maids were very attentive to the rooms and detail. We couldn't get the fridge to cool well so we asked the front desk and somebody was over immediately to fix it. There was a smell of sewer gas was the only off-putting thing... More

Nice location, close to Braddock metro station (10 minutes walk) to go to Washington (30 minutes ). Close to grocery store too. Around 20$ by cab to go to washington.

This hotel is right in olde town in walking distance to most places and about 3 blocks to the water front. It is a basic motel that is very clean with comfy beds. Compared to other hotels in the area, the rates are extremely reasonable and the staff are wonderful. Their rooms are exactly as pictured on the website with... More

I drove by this place all the time growing up and finally stayed here for a 30 year reunion. Totally convenient to everything as it's located on the GW Parkway on the north side of Alexandria. It wasn't the Hilton but I wasn't paying Hilton prices, I got what I paid for - a comfortable room, hot water, good maid... More

We booked for 3 nights from home. Pricey for what it is but I guess that is Alexandria and DC region all over. The rooms are run down with ageing appliances. Bedding was clean but we had a spider in one corner at about waist height for the whole stay. I killed a centipede or something similar on a wall... More

Deceptive pictures on their site- definitely not as upkept as website appears; rooms are significantly smaller. Did not realize possibility of ground floor room, with external door facing the st- requested to move up a floor & they would not accomodate. Had they accurately portrayed themselves, I would have requested a higher floor or not booked.

Location perfect, pretty clean. Management was friendly and helped find us a room late at night. Hard to find when you don't know the area. Beds were not that great, but too tired to fret about it. A older hotel, close enough to DC.

I was planning a trip to Washington DC area (where I've been several times before) and really wanted to stay in Old Town Alexandria, VA. I love that city. However, when I started looking at hotels on the main strip, King St, I quickly found out how expensive the area is. Not only that, but parking would be extra. Not... More

Older motel that will surprise you and gently pet your wallet. We stayed here 3 days and booked separate king rooms for us and the in laws. The exterior is okay but shows the age of the structure. The staff is their greatest asset. The young man at the check in desk is friendly as well as informative. He spoke... More

Stayed here recently on a Monday night as had early AM flight out of DCA Airport. It's just a good, clean, simple, well located motel. Nothing fancy, just a good and safe place to get a night's sleep!
