This is a cross between Motel 6 and Holiday Inn. Free WiFi and a great staff. Frig and microwave in rooms, but the style is a motel on a somewhat noisy main street. Generally clean and a 7 m walk to the Metro. Nice area of Alexandria to walk around.

Stayed here September 25, 2011 for two nights. The previous reviews were accurate about the outside which really looked like a dump and I never would have stayed there if the reviews hadn't been pretty good. The room was renovated and small but very nice and more than adequate for one person. It was very clean and comparable to a... More

The Towne Motel is nothing fancy, but clean and adiquate. It is an old style motel, but the bathroom appeared to have been reciently redone and the room was freshly painted and the carpet fine, so no complaints. A fridge and microwave were in the room, though I did not use either. I found a hair dryer that should have... More

This place is a great alternative for mid-week travelers looking to economize. It hit my radar when I searched for a room for four people with two queen beds - very hard to find! It's a "no frills" motel, but the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. The motel is on the outskirts of old town but certainly within... More

Washington DC is expensive so we decided to stay in Alexandria and use the Metro which is really convenient to the hotel. You can walk there in 10 minutes or less. Plus King street is great! Loved walking around there on the weekends. So glad we stayed where we did. This level of hotel would have been double the price... More

Terrific location....10 minute walk to King St.....10 minute walk to metro!! Room decent, no fancies but clean and fridge and micro included. TV has lots of channels. Starbucks, grocery store (GIANT), and Pan Square Pizza a block away. Take the metro to King St. Get on the FREE King St trolley to cruise King St. The block has many stops.... More

The bad: The outside of the hotel is a little run down and the room was pretty small for a family with children. The good: The guy at the desk was very helpful. He gave us good directions, advice, looked up the metro fare for us, and let us leave our van in the lot at 10:00 on the morning... More

Great service on arrival! The exterior of the building was very old and a bit shabby in appearance, but inside, the room was great! The bathroom seemed new and the shower was very good. TV reception was good, also Wifi............free parking and the location was easy to find. The area had a lot of eateries to choose from. The trolley... More

Finding an affordable place to stay in Alexandria in May was a challenge, but this little place fit the bill. Not much to look at on the outside, and it's on a semi-busy street, but the rooms, though small, are comfortable and well furnished, and street noise is minimal. The front-desk help was very accommodating. Best feature is the location,... More

I stayed here with my parents Memorial Day weekend 2011 for $99 a night (I asked for a senior rate). Rooms were clean and fresh expect for dust. It looks like the hotel was just renovated, so other than the quick dusting it was a nice room, there is a coffee maker with free coffee, microwave and frige. I though... More
