Room was quiet and comfortable, parking was included, and coffee was available across the hall. Only stayed one night so we didn't miss the lack of a pool. Would stay again ,there are so many great things to do in the Arlington area.

My mom found this hotel for us through choice hotels. We found it convenient to find from I-66, and were really glad to find it so close to a Metro station, a walk of about 2.5 blocks. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the neighborhood was nice. The continental breakfast was a bit slim, but otherwise, we... More

I stayed three nights at Econo Lodge Metro.The property is a 5-8 minute walk from the East Falls Church Metro, so it's quite convenient to public transportation. The property is pretty basic. As long as you know that you are trading price point for amenities, it's pretty ok. The property has no elevator. If need accessibility or just hate carrying... More

This was our 2015 Spring Break trip for my 15yo son and myself. Based on a limited budget, it was not the easiest task to find something that would not take all our funds before we even reached the city. I had read numerous reviews from several sites and the Econo Lodge seemed the perfect fit for our needs. It... More

My family of four stayed here in March 2015 in a room with two double beds. We chose Econo Lodge Metro based on its cost and proximity to the Metro train station. The walk to the train station is a well-lit bike path or a residential neighborhood, your choice. The walk from our room to the train was 11 minutes.... More

Now, this is tough review. I had read lots of reviews before choosing this hotel, and then had my own experience. And the best way to summarize it is to say: Great Budget Hotel, but acknowledge some facts and keep your expectations real! Then you will not get dissapointed. This is a great hotel with many pros: It has a... More

Simple with its' style and furniture.Nothing fancy but still you get whatever you need. Staff was nice and helpful. Restaurants at outside helped a lot. You need to walk to metro stations for almost 15 mins. Economic for short business trips.
