I cannot comprehend how this place has so many good reviews. The Highlander is an Arlington landmark but is very deteriorated, especially when compared to other hotels in the area. Rooms are faded, worn, and generally falling apart and in need of major upgrades. Mattresses sag, fixtures are broken, water pressure is non-existent, towels are threadbare and have holes, etc...

For the price this hotel was clean and comfortable. Convenient to subway and many restaurants. Pizza place next door has great subs and ice cream. Get a room on the back side, it is quieter. 10 minute subway ride to National Mall.

All very nice. It was less thatn $100/night, which is very good for DC. Nice spacious rrom, frig, tv, nice bathroom, two beds, roomy room. NEAR THE METRO to access DC. Family-run, nice people and helpful. Basic continental breakfast. You can't do any better, I don't think, in DC for the value/price. Nearby resturants, market, general shopping.

Nice, clean, roomy stay. Walking distance of the rail metro system and busses, grocery, etc., Refrigerator, and upon asking, microwave in the room. Friendly helpful staff are five star!. Over night or for longer duration a great find.

The recommendations about this place are all correct. The place is old but well maintained, bathrooms are new, rooms are big and beds very comfortable and there is free breakfast from 7 to 11. Service is great, the front desk always happy to assist with questions. The area is also nice (unlike some neighborhoods around DC that can be problematic)... More

Don't let the exterior fool you...The room was clean and neat; coffee pot, hairdryer, iron and etc in lobby. The price is very good and I suppose that's why rowdy young people choose to stay here. That's my only complaint.

I had walked or driven past the Highlander on Wilson Blvd. many times while growing up in North Arlington. A friend and I even went in to apply for summer jobs as housekeepers when we were 16 and the motel was called "The Scotsman" then. Wisely they turned us down, neither of us were all that good at making our... More

Stayed one night in mid June, 2014. Touring sites in DC. We were looking for an economical motel. Location was good- short walk to the Metro. Outside appearance is deceiving, rooms are updated. Problem with bathroom door, didn't lock and one table leg was coming off! Room was clean and comfortable for the 4 of us.

Great value,great location. Don't be put off by the age of this motel. We stayed three nights in August for less than £200 and it was excellent value. Two queen sized beds for us and our teenage daughters. Ensuite and so quiet. Ask for a room at the back away from the road-very peaceful. Breakfast was fresh fruit, yogurt, orange... More
