I chose the hotel for the price and for the location - it's a block away from the subway station. The price is low because the hotel hasn't been renovated in many years. However, it is very clean and comfortable. So if you're like me and don't care about having the latest TV or the newest style of furniture, then... More

This is an older hotel but it was very clean, quiet, and the employees were all very friendly and helpful. It is just two blocks away from the metro station, safe to walk, they pick up & deliver at the airport or to other location close to hotel. The room was clean, ac worked real good, in fact we got...

I was very happy to have read reviews on the Americana and to have chosen it for our 3 night stay! Esther is the bomb. She knows everything....has coupons & maps....smiles all the time. Our shuttle driver was also the best! FREE PARKING in DC almost unheard of! You can park your car and never drive....they take you anywhere around... More

First time to DC (okay, Arlington) and looked for a reasonable hotel for myself, my husband and my 9 & 11 yr old. Came across this place and read and re-read reviews and decided to try it out, namely to save our hard earned money. When first pulling in, I honestly thought.. "what did I do?!" :), but got over...

This place is great if you want to be away from all the noise of the big city but close enough to get around. It's clean, staff is friendly and area is safe. Breakfast is just enough to grab and go; coffee is hot and pastries and fruit is fresh. Bed are comfortable, shuttle van is clean and accommodating. Would... More

If you're on a budget and want a clean, safe, friendly hotel with a good location, the Americana will meet your needs. If you also expect an excellent continental breakfast, good wifi in rooms, updated furnishings in good repair, and an attractive building, you'll be disappointed. I would absolutely recommend the hotel to those who want a basic hotel at... More

My wife and I stayed here 8/15-8/18 and we loved it! I originally found it while searching for hotels online near the Metro. I loved that it's an original hotel from the 60's and not a new hotel made to look like it's from the 60's. I was excited about booking the hotel I mean who wouldn't cheap rates, free... More

My wife and I tried this hotel on our recent trip to metro DC. The hotel is right off the highway, which is very convenient, and is close to both a metro station and bus stops, as well is within walking distance to some very good restaurants. We attempted to check in with a coupon from a travel guide book... More

We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us and hope you'll accept our apologies for the shortcomings you experienced. It seems like the start of your bad time was when we did not have the discount hotel guide rate available. Although the guide states that the rates are subject to availability and most hotels only...

I found the Americana through one of the travel sites and read great reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel is right off the interstate and less than half a mile from a metro stop. As soon as we came in, Esther greeted us with a warm smile and helped us navigate through DC. Quentin was also so nice and... More
