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

We too booked here on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and we certainly weren't disappointed in any way. We knew it might be a gamble staying here, given the 'old fashioned' structure of the building but we weren't at all disappointed. It was easy to find for people who didn't know the area at all and ample free parking... More

We decided to stay at this hotel based largely based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. We booked 2 nights but decided to leave after the first night. It just wasn't the place we expected. This is an "old school" motel, no frills. We weren't convinced the room was clean. We moved rooms because the toilet didn't work. The shower... More

We've stayed in various places, just outside of DC in the past and never been very happy. So, this was a first and, finally, we have found the perfect place for us, and at an excellent price. Our room was a very good size, nice bathroom, A/C unit worked well, excellent WiFi, table and chairs, fridge and decent carpet We... More

Aside from a few hiccups, my stay was enjoyable. The room was clean, the staff were helpful, and the price was much lower than other potentials for my stay. Highlander is only a few blocks from Virginia Square Metro Station, and within a quarter mile of many restaurants. I found it was very easy to get up, eat breakfast, make... More

Simple, affordable motel in an area that generally fills up very quickly and doesn't have many options in this range. When I was got in, I was informed that my reservation price was higher than the actual rate for those days, and my price was re-adjusted downwards, all without any prompting. Clean, comfortable rooms, and in general a pleasant stay.... More

I stayed at this property for 2 nights. The room was clean, comfortable and affordable. However, one lady at the front desk was a bit rude and unprofessional I believe her name was Sheryl. I chose this motel because I needed to stay near the Pentagon Memorial for an affordable price. There were food options within walking distance as well... More
