I stayed here while visiting DC for leisure. It's good for the money, considering it is at least half the price of most hotels you'll get closer to DC. It's also within walking distance (albeit a long walk) from the Metro. Everything was clean enough. Don't expect fancy, but it has the basics. Also on my last day there, they... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Towne Motel while visiting the Washington, D.C. area. This hotel is conveniently located in the historic downtown area of Alexandria and was within easy walking distance of both downtown restaurants and the transit system. Since our goal was to visit the National Mall in Washington, without paying for high-priced hotels, this... More

We stayed at this hotel 9/23/14 to 9/29/14. The outside needs a little TLC however, inside the rooms we found them to be very clean and modern. I loved the showers (Hot and Plentiful) and the Keurig coffee pot (I'm not spoiled). Located right off of Washington street we heard a little noise from the street and airplanes. However, having...

Great place in Old town Alexandria, about a 7 block walk to metro which took us to everything we did in D.C. The manager/owner, & Neil & Eddie were so helpful with everything & so personable, enjoyed visiting with them all. The room was very clean & looked like it had been refurnished recently. The fridge & microwave were great;... More

The people who run this motel are helpful and friendly. We chose it because it offered a microwave, refrigerator, and free parking. The price is very reasonable for this area. DC sights are a short drive away. The room was clean. Beds were comfortable with crisp sheets. Wifi worked smoothly. Keurig coffee maker (4k-cups provided each day- 2 Donut Shop... More

Hotel staff was great. The metro station was 5 blocks away which took u straight to the heart of DC. Room was big and clean. Also walked down to the river front to eat right on the Potomac. Would stay again and highly recommend!!!

This hotel is a gem! It's a family run motel only a short walk from all the major Alexandria sights and only a 10 minute drive from all the DC monuments and museums. There are no extras but you get a clean room that is much less expensive than most of the other places to stay. If you're looking for... More

Family run motel with an emphasis on service and pride in every facet of their motel. The staff and owners were so helpful in providing information on the local sights/public transit, their enthusiasm was infectious. What a gem this place is!

Overall, this was a good value. No extras, just a well-kept, clean room with comfortable beds and bathroom. No sign of bed bugs anywhere. Price was a good value, considering it was a busy time of the year. About ¾ mile walk to King St. Eddie & Neil (front office) were very accommodating. They should be given big raises.The Royal...

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
