Great staff, very helpful, always available and offered suggestions for local spots. Economic, recently remodeled, clean and convenient location. Stayed for a week and felt at home. Will stay here again. Great rate for what we got. Complimentary coffee (keurig), cable & wifi. Fridge and micro in room were nice for saving $ instead of paying for many meals out.... More

I got a discounted rate of $68 plus tax per night for two people in a clean room with King bed, Keurig coffee maker, microwave, dorm fridge, lit on site parking, and centrally located in Old Town. Unbelievable value! 5 minute walk to the Torpedo Factory, Potomac River, and all the shopping and restaurants of Old Town. 10-15 minutes to... More

I was leery at first because the room was inexpensive, there were not many cars in the free onsite parking and the office was a little run down, but I was pleasantly surprised once I entered my large room. It was clean and the bathroom was very nice. The two queen beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen area, equipped... More

We just got home after spending three nights at the Towne Motel. As many other reviewers have said, it's nothing fancy, but the room was perfectly clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is lovely, and it's about a five-block walk to the Metro station, King Street in Old Town or the park system that runs along the Potomac. For budget travelers,... More

Very simple but very comfortable, clean and quiet room with king size bed, desk and office chair, small kitchen corner with a Keurig coffee machine and very clean bathroom. A few blocks from downtown Alexandria and its very good restaurants on King street and 10 minutes walk from the Metro to downtown Washington, DC. Recommended in our favorite travel guide,... More

I picked this place because it was close to a place that I had to attend for a meeting. The location was not bad close to water and sites and price was great. The rooms are nice and looked renovated but the TV was old and dull picture. I woke of in the AM with bites on my arms and... More

This is an older place, but the management obviously goes to great length to keep it in top shape. My room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The only staff contact I had was with the live-in manager and he was extremely pleasant. The rates are far below the area average, but don't let this be a turn-off. Next time... More

Three of us stayed there in May 2013. We were looking for a reasonably priced placed to stay in a good location. The location was FANTASTIC!! The other hotels were triple the cost!! So that did play a role in why I picked a motel. The bathrooms were clean!! The bedding left a lot to be desired. If the bedding... More

Stayed here for a week as a base to travel into DC. Was only a 10min walk to Metro which suited us. Staff were very friendy and helpful. Rooms were a reasonable size and clean and comfortable. Exactly what we wanted from a hotel room in my proice range.

Don't let the outside fool you. This is a VERY nice motel. Hotel room was spotless and updated. Appeared to be granite shower. Very friendly staff. Quick 10 minute walk to the metro or 10 minute drive into DC. Kid safe area. Definitely recommend!
