This is a good hotel, fairly new and clean. However, I was looking for something close to Old Town Alexandria, and this was 13 miles away with terrible traffic.. Good for Mt. Vernon and Ft. Belvoir, but not DC..

My husband and I stayed here in early April while visiting Mount Vernon (3 miles away). The property is quiet, very clean, and well-appointed. Our room had a perfectly adequate kitchenette. There is also free laundry!

Close to Mt Vernon for an event. A number of my group stayed there and no complaints. Rooms only have one bed, but rollaway available at reasonable fee. Staff was very helpful and responded quickly to extra bed request. No meals but coffee in restricted space for guests. Would use them again.

I stayed two nights at this hotel for a vacation centered around Mt Vernon. The location was excellent for our purpose. Check in was quick/parking was plentiful and the room was very clean and quiet. The room was a bit small - but because it contains a kitchen w/ full sized fridge/ microwave and cooktop + dishwasher. The bath is... More

Everything about our hotel stay was extremely satisfying. From the free laundry to the inroom kitchen and dining area. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Free parking and room for 5 and a dog.

A great and comfortable place to stay. Out of the center of town for a more relaxing environment, yet close enough to everything in a 20 minute drive. The wi-fi is fast and stable. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the recliner could be more comfortable. Other than that, this hotel is great.

This hotel was recommended to me by a local colleague for its proximity to my business point (Fort Belvoir). It was definitely close to the Fort. I would call it adjacent. It was your basic hotel room, and the desk staff was polite. There were doggie treats and a water bowl in the lobby (?). However. This is not a... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night after attending a funeral in the area. Check-in was smooth and the price was good. We didn't need a luxury hotel, just a nice, clean room for the night. The room itself would be nice for a business traveller as it had a full kitchen: full size refrigerator, 2... More
