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!! Each night we returned totally exhausted to a well maintained room. We chose this motel for its proximity to our visits and we were most pleased with the price, cleanliness, maintenance, and...

Taking care of Santa and Mrs. Claus Christmas week is the high light of my 30 years as manager. These fine folks live the spirit of Christmas. I have never encountered a more wonderful Santa. The joy these two people bring to the world, can not be measured. God bless you both, and thanks for making all the staff's Christmas... More

Don't tell too many people about this place - it's a great bargain and seems to be unknown. The motel is located just south of Alexandria Old Town. But it is on a major highway, making it convenient to Washington DC or to Fort Belvoir, and they have shuttle service to nearby Metro Station. It is an old building but... More

We stayed here for several days and really enjoyed our stay - this older property (1950s) has been owned and operated by the same family, from what I understood - and they have a lot of pride in it, which is evident by how well the place is maintained and kept up. The breakfast was rather minimal, but we had... More

We've spent one night and one day in Washington and it's a really good motel. The service was nice and it's very good located. My dad and I have spend the evening doing weird work-outs and enjoying the view on some kind of lake and cars passing by. Even though there's a road next to the motel, you can barely... More

We enjoyed a three day stay at Budget Host Travelers Motel this summer. Prices were great, room was very clean, and the location was great. Easy access to downtown Alexandria ans Washington D.C. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Driving the long journey (in a huge U-Haul) from Seattle to Alexandria, Virginia was quite the distance. And after having a terrible stay in Chicago, and a terribly expensive stay at the Old Town Alexandria's Sheraton, Budget Host Travelers Motel was in a sense, a home away from home. A huge room with an updated bathroom, super clean sheets, floors,... More

This is a very old hotel but has been updated somewhat. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean. The best part of this motel is it's location and price!

Sorry you were unhappy. I can assure that we change our sheets after every guest departs, If a guest stays more then one night we change sheets every other day. Be advised that is myth that Hotels don't chage sheets. For professionals like us, it is 10 times easier for us to make up a bed with clean sheets, then... More
