I found this on Trip advisor after seaching for months for anything convenient that didn't cost a fortune. Located on a busy highway, but traffic noise wasn't a problem. Every morning when we needed to get to the Metro, someone would drive us up and drop us off. They told us how to catch the bus back, if needed. A... More

After looking at prices in downtown Washington we had decided to skip it from our itinerary until someone suggested staying somewhere on a metro route and getting the train in. We chose this one at just under $100 a night and were very pleased. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable and the trip into Washington... More

Their sign on Route 1 says, "Spend a night, not a fortune." Well put. Based on the reviews here, I made a reservation and then pulled up and thought I made a big mistake. It's right on Route 1 which is about 10 lanes wide. It looks like it was new about 75 years ago, which it was. The proprietors... More

I have often preferred a stay in an older, more comfortable lodging (just like me!), rather than the newest chain motels which seem to be almost universal these days. This Budget Host was built about fifty years ago, and the original owner is still alive, although not actually managing the property. There were many nice touches - breakfast included coffee,...

Although the price is reasonable for the DC area, and the staff were very nice, I would never stay there again for several reasons: The room smelled awful (combination of stale smoke and another odd odor - we didn't even want to eat food in the room); the ancient AC hardly worked; the bathroom had someone's soiled t-shirt hanging behind...

First of all, I couldn't agree more with all the previous good reviews. This homey, family run motel is the best choice you could make for your trip to DC area. As their sign says outside..."Once you stay here, you'll come back" Nicely said, and, I Will.

Convenient location, excellent staff, reasonably priced as compared to other lodging in the area. I would stay at this location again and would recommend it to others. Nothing fancy or all of the shiny fluff of the Corp. chains. $200 vrs. Less than $85.00 /night. I choose a clean place to sleep, shower, with a microwave, small refrig, etc

Yes, it's an old-style motel. But the price is great for those on a tight budget. You are greeted with a smile upon checkin. It's easy to find. The rooms are really clean. The bed is a bit firmer than I like, but that was okay, too. There is a small microwave, small fridge, classic motel heating/cooling unit that worked... More
