We live in the neighborhood behind the Highlander. We were celebrating my mother's 100th birthday and needed extra beds for out-of-town guests. They just wanted some place that was clean and relatively comfortable nearby. The Highlander exceeded all our guests' expectations. Every one raved about how much they liked it - and said the Highlander would be their "go to"... More

I have stayed at this motel before, and find it quite consistent. It is: a low-cost, no-frills clean place to stay in Arlington. If you want pretty modern finishes and the standard types of amenities of a business hotel - coffee maker, gym, pool, etc - this is NOT the place for you. The rooms have a half-height fridge, and...

We stayed at the Highlander Motel while visiting Washington DC for a week. The price was very reasonable, the room was clean and quiet, and the metro was a couple of blocks down the street. A mini-fridge is provided so we supplemented the fruit, coffee/tea, and toast provided with cereal and milk brought from home and ate in our room.... More

We were visiting our grandson who is in the Old Guard, stationed at Ft. Myer. Wanted a convenient location to the base and the Metro. We found this gem on TripAdvisor and it was everything we read about in the reviews. They did offer a continental breakfast which included apples and banana's and yogurt. We chose to go to a...

The staff is courteous, I had some peace and quiet, and above all, it's a walking distance to a great church. Breakfast was great (if you like fruits for breakfast). Has a nice, "homey" feel. Definitely recommend. However, it may not be an appropriate place to take kids on a vacation, unless you can manage the space.

Stayed here while attending a conference in DC. Clean comfortable room with updated bathroom with large glass walled shower. Flat screen TV and 2 comfortable double beds. I also recommend getting a large steak and cheese at Mario's next door.

We stayed here for two nights. Big and clean room and bathroom. Airconditioning was good and so are the beds. You can park your car, free, in front of your room. Restaurants are at walking distance. Skip the breakfast unless you have a severe sugar addiction (muffins, bagels and jam) and don't mind eating while standing. The receptionist wanted a... More

This old style motel is welcoming, comfortable and well appointed. It is very close to a Metro station and so is ideal for visiting the sights of DC. There is free onsite parking and a good simple continental breakfast is provided. The free wifi works well throughout the property. We had a very enjoyable four night break there.
