Excellent location and brilliant service! This is not my first visit to Washington and I must say that I have stayed in quite a number of hotels which did not meet my expectation! I have finally found a "home" in Arlington!!! I loved the spacious and spotless rooms... But most importantly the great customer service! The metro station at Virginia... More

Clean warm modestly updated room with a better bed than more expensive places I've stayed. Friendly helpful staff that aided me with my touring plans, and the location was great with many places to eat within a few blocks. Easy Metro ride from the airport and to all of the sights. 5 nights under $500 with taxes. I would stay... More

This is something like our 10th stay at this lovely, affordable gem and I am honestly one of the pickiest travelers around. The Highlander is a GREAT find. Every time we've stayed here we've enjoyed a spotless room and wonderful, no-nonsense service. The beds are comfortable and rooms have been updated. Modest? Sure. But the value can't be beat. There's... More

Recently stayed here for 3 nights. Stayed at other $200+ hotels in the area during my previous DC trips so not surprised to see this hotel got 4-star rating. Location is good, Giant Food is about a few blocks away next to a good Chinese Restaurant. Metro (Virginia Square) is a short distance walk. Price is nice compared with other... More

This is a drab and run down place that is quite unlike any of the hotels in the area. The only good thing about this place is the location. The price is good for the area but everything about this place from the furnishings to toiletries to linens is of a grade lower than motel 6. It has been a... More

This is not a 4-star. I thought I found a great bargain online after reading reviews. I was in town for a St Louis-George Mason basketball game and stayed here. It was dated and seemed dirty. The staff was ok but seemed disinterested. Internet connection was also shabby. I won't be back.

Stayed here for two days recently. Positives: good price and a nice, safe area. Few new updates that I loved: the granite in the sink area was really beautiful, lovely porcelain in the bathroom, new and very nice bathroom/sink fixtures. Loved the bedding (expensive comforter from pacificcoast.com) although it did looked like it had a good wear. They have VERY... More

Stayed here during a recent business trip to the area. The motel is clean, pretty quiet (but you are in a city). It is centrally located and the area around it is safe and clean. The hotel room has been renovated but the whole place is clearly from a different area. The motel could serve as a movie backdrop, certainly... More

Older facility but exceptionally well kept and outstanding for the price. Highly recommend it for anyone visiting DC. Metro is easy walking distance for access to all areas of DC. Decent continental breakfast and an excellent diner just down the street.Staff was friendly and most helpful at all hours, went out of their way to accommodate our family. One of... More

Very nice motel. The room was clean. The beds comfortable. Everything worked as it should. There was a small refrigerator in the room ... a nice extra. Parking was free. There is a simple but adequate free breakfast (yogurt, breads with toaster, cream cheese, butter, jelly, fruit, coffee/tea). There is a good diner (the Silver Arrow) an easy walk away... More
