Situated in the not-tourist-area of Alexandria this is a value for budget conscious traveller who really will not do anything in the room but shower and sleep. You cannot walk into Old Town from here and be aware of very low budget motels on either side of this property if that matters to you. I was approached by a homeless... More

Your comments are very important to us and right on point. We are a basic no frills, pet friendly and smoke free property. Being exterior does present challenges. Where we stand out from most of our competitors is our ability to make all of our guest feel special. Thank you, Shirley Jordan General Manager More

Sarah was very very informative & Knowledgeable of the area and gave excellent advice. Polite and Professional as well. I wished all Hotels had someone like her in them, traveling is tiring at times and people like Sarah who show they really do "care" about you makes all the difference.

I experienced the roof under bad circumstances; canceled connecting flight, hot night, grumpy me. The room hadn't been cleaned, which was kind of creepy (really, former guest, think about your snack food choices), but Isaac at the desk did everything he could to fix the situation. The next morning, Sarah was pleasant and helpful. This is a nice enough place,... More

We stayed at this property as chaperones to a small high school group. The rooms were very clean, and despite facing the roadway, I was very pleasantly surprised at how quiet the rooms were at night. We would have liked to have somewhere with a continental breakfast, but there were microwaves and fridges in the rooms, which made it easy... More

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay while touring all the sites around Washington DC. We couldn't beat the price, for staying 4 nights. It took us about 20 minutes to get parked by the National Mall in DC. It was not bad at all. If you stay there on a Saturday and Sunday, do not take any... More

Thank you for letting me know that my team did an awesome job making your stay a pleasant one. Having non-smoking rooms, in a smoking environment is a struggle.
