So me and a friend are planning on driving up to DC from Florida as a graduation gift to ourselves. We are looking to stay somewhere in Virginia as the rates seem to be cheaper as compared to DC. Any suggestions/tips/general advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm thinking a budget of no more than $100/night and definitely want to stay in a safe area in walking/short driving distance to a metro .
If there are anymore questions or clarifications needed feel free to ask, and thanks in advance!
