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.

No safety issues- the path is well-lit at... More

My son and I visited on November 15-16. It was very convenient to Washington DC. It is about 15 minutes from National Airport unless there is traffic. It is an 8-10 minute walk to the East Falls Church metro along a bike path. There is a ton of parking at the metro if you do not want to walk. The... More

A three level older style motel located approx 600 metres along bike path from East Falls Church Metro station making it easy to commute into central Washington. Although facing a busy road, our room was acceptably quiet. Included continental breakfast was simple but adequate. Lack of an elevator could be a problem for those with mobility issues. Old style mixer... More

This is a basic hotel with a clean, basic room. There is no coffee maker in the room but there is a microwave & refrigerator. The room was large enough and not too tiny. Staff was very friendly. It was about a 10 minute walk to the Metro in a nice neighborhood although the actual hotel is on a main... More

Last Spring i led a small group of teenagers in touring Washington, DC. We wanted a hotel that was near the metro and none were better, for the price, than the Econo Lodge.

I was working in DC and decided to drive to save time and money. This property is near the E. Falls Church metro, inexpensive, clean, and comfortable.

Excellent rates and excellent location, just off I-66, near Metro, and near downtown Falls Church. Not at all fancy, but very clean and quiet. If you're staying for a few nights, consider one of the suites - they are spacious and comfortable. Standard rooms are fairly small and basic - but again, clean and comfortable. Definitely a notch above other... More
