I've brought 2 scout travel groups here and for the price point we were satisfied. My requirements: fridge in the rooms, 2 queen beds + 5th guest in room permitted, a swimming pool for free evening entertainment, free breakfast and no bed bugs. I got everything I wanted, but I did have to specify queen beds with fridge because they... More

First thing when you walked in, you notice a musty, old cigarette smell even though it was a non-smoking room. The room was clean, but the bathroom could use a better cleaning. The grout lines in the shower were green, they should have been white. Also, there was mildew on the ceiling. The water pressure in the shower was very... More

We stayed here for 5 nights, sight seeing the Wash DC area. The Metro is close by (15-20 minute walk) so you can get into DC without the expense of a rental car. This hotel has seen better days, is old and shows it. Our room was clean, fresh towels and linens daily. The bed spread had cigarette burns in... More

Standard interior and breakfast, but OK. Helpful staff; we were given the opportunity to check in a few hours earlier; that was very convenient. The backside, though, is that this is one of the motels we've stayed in with the highest overall level of noise. Both from the outside, from the hallway, from running water in rooms nearby and –...

Couple of things, computers messed up when we checked in, so no paperwork for stay. When we returned to our room the second day, the cardkey did not work on the door. Nothing big, just little things. Also the breakfast was average, however, there was no fruit canned or fresh. And no yogurt, just things you would usually find on... More

The staff was very friendly overall, and the staff at the front desk was helpful in getting us around. The room had a fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer. I used one of the 2 computers available in the lobby (I don't have a laptop.) The pool looked clean and inviting. The hotel offered a free ride to the MetroRail.... More

This hotel has all the amenities to make for a comfortable stay. It won't win any awards for "curb-appeal," but the room was clean and comfortable. The pool has a life guard and the free breakfast includes fresh waffles which was a little above what I expect from hotels in this price range. Convenient to the Metro Station and plenty... More

This hotel was a pretty good hotel, especially considering the price. It provided us a good place to rest during a trip to Washington, DC. It was a short drive to the metro station and many restaurants nearby. The pool was good size and clean; also had a lifeguard. Rooms are small, but adequate since we really just needed a... More

This hotel is in a lesser part of Alexandria, so be prepared for that, but it is within walking distance (for those who are used to walking) to the metrorail station, which is a huge plus. The exterior looks like it needs work, but the actual rooms themselves look to have been refurbished and are quite nice. The do smell... More

Let me say this up front - I never really liked Days Inn hotels. Maybe it was a bad childhood at one that has scared me of Days Inn, but I was stunned when I got to the hotel. At check-in, I got to the hotel at 2 PM with check-in at 3 PM. I was allowed to check-in early... More
