The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff polite but not overly friendly. It is a 10 minute walk to the Metro Station. The ice and vending are downstairs, as is the laundry. Noise can be a concern, as the walls are a little thin.They have no elevator, and for some reason their doors are extremely hard to open. Trying... More

We stayed for three nights and found the beds comfy, the rooms well maintained, the breakfast adequate, but most of all the staff friendly, helpful flexible and attentive. A real family atmosphere. The hotel is a short walk on the bike path to the Metro and right alongside I66. The hotel does not have an elevator.

We stayed for 4 nights while visiting D.C. based on reviews found here. This hotel met, but did not exceed, those expectations. Staff was not overly helpful nor courteous and the continental breakfast leaves much to be desired. You have to get there early, or it is picked over fast. Noise can also be a problem, as our room faced... More

Stayed at this particular location several times, and have never been disappointed.The service is always execellent, the prices are very affordable and the staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean.Recently improved continental breakfast is more than adequate and the attentive staff makes it very convenient. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

We found the EconoLodge Metro lived up to it's advertisement. The room was clean, although the decor is a bit 80's. The double beds were a bit small, fortunately we are not large people and traveled with kids. We did have to ask for towels daily, they kept bringing a set for 3 people instead of 4. Breakfast was adequate,... More

This Econo Lodge is in a great location for both the freeway and the metro. Our room was good (small bathroom, but otherwise quite nice) and the continental breakfast was good. The neighborhood feels safe, and there are several restaurants a 3-5 minute drive away. But most importantly, the front desk gives great customer service. We accidently booked the wrong... More

We got a free upgrade at this hotel for our 3 night stay. It was a lovely big room. The breakfast was ok, room was nice and clean and we liked the little extras like the guest laundry and the vending machines that had nice snacks in them. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to explore DC on... More
