If you look at the images of this place online, look closely. You see that nice, new, glass building that seems to be the focus of the photo? The one conveniently placed directly behind the Econo Lodge sign? That is NOT it. It is the janky-looking 70’s place to the right. I hope you aren’t brining a lot of luggage... More

We don't usually stay at Econo Lodge hotel, opting for Comfort Suites, but the trip,advisor ratings, location and price made us give it a try. We were not disappointed. It was basic, but one of the cleanest hotels we've been in. If you don't mind using the metro for the 20 minute ride to DC you should stay her and... More

Stayed here recently for 4 nights whilst visiting Washington DC, we could not afford to stay in DC so this hotel provided a great location for us to base ourselves from with a pleasant short walk to the East Falls Church metro station. The free breakfast was good and staff did a good job of keeping it restocked. The reception... More

Thank you for all of the feedback in your review. We appreciate it very much. You highlighted many of the reasons why someone should choose the Econ Lodge Inn Arlington for a stay. It's also fantastic when first hand knowledge from a satisfied customer leads to other guests who come to stay with us. We couldn't do this without you! More

This is a very nice place to stay if you can afford it. Very clean fixed up facilities. Compared to the other place I stayed in Arlington this had smaller rooms and tight parking lot.

This hotel is in a great location, only a short walk to the nearby East Falls Church Metro Station, leading into central Washington DC. The rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast consisted of a fair selection, good as it was included free. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The Econo Lodge in Arlington is a no frills hotel. No pool, no bar, just a place to get a free, basic breakfast, free internet, free parking, and a good place to sleep. We planned a 4 day vacation to explore Washington DC and found this hotel to be a great place to lay your head down at night. The... More

Room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was very close to the Metro station (3 blocks on a lighted bike/pedestrian path). We returned to our room late at night and felt very safe. We enjoyed the nearby sandwich shop and Cajun seafood restaurant. The free parking and free breakfast were nice too.

Rented a hotel room for 3 nights when visiting Washington DC. You can walk to the metro station from this hotel via a jogging trak and it was safe to do so even late in the night.

In July my wife and I stayed at the Econo Lodge Metro for our third and fourth times. Clearly, we think it is a very good value with an excellent location. Each time the front desk staff has been welcoming and helpful. It is an excellent choice for its value and location.
