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

Good- Staff very pleasant. Hotel room very clean. Location to Convention center at National Harbor very convenient. Wifi was better this visit. Well priced for stay. Needs improvement-Traffic noise could be audible @ times. Door stuck on occasion-difficult to open & close. Updating to electronic locks for safety.

Located on Route 1 just south of I-95/495, this motel met my needs on a recent stop. All of the basics were provided, and I got a good rest after a long travel day. The breakfast offered is extremely basic, but enough to get the day started.

Santa and Mrs. C had the occasion to spend four wonderful nights while we made over 20 individual visits to interview many, many children in the Alexandria/Arlington area!!
