“Great place to stay at in Alexandria, Va”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Needed a place to stay while traveling back home to NJ. Arrived late and was greeted promptly and checked in quickly. Room very nice and clean with two double beds and big bathroom. Free Wi-Fi. Stay included hot breakfast in a very large comfortable dining area, although crowded, it didn't seem it. Great assortment of food, fresh fruit, cereal, oatmeal, bagels and toast, eggs and sausage, waffles and cold and hot beverages plus more!

Did not use pool or do any local attractions since goal was to get back on the road in the AM. Quick and easy access to and from I - 95. Plus, breakfast bags to go during the work week!

Had a nice weekend stay here with my wife and daughter. The location is right by the major highways off of Route #1 and only a fifteen minute drive from D.C. if the traffic is light. The room was clean and there was no complaint from our daughter regarding the condition of the pull out bed. Lots of convenient & typical dining options minutes down Rt. 1 and the free breakfast buffet was a nice little perk for the inexpensive room charge. They also had free parking and free wifi which in D.C and the surrounding area is not available very much. The only very minor drawback was the position of the T.V made it hard for everyone to watch while in bed, it does swivel but it is mounted too far forward on the stand. Would come back the next time I visit D.C.

My boys and I stayed here this past weekend for a Washington DC trip. The hotel was very clean and the staff was great. The shuttle was awesome and it ran 24 hours a day all we had to do was tell them we need the shuttle and they were ready, upon pick up at the metro station, they gave us their business card and just asked us to call when we arrived back at the station and they would go and get us. This saved LOTS of money since parking in DC is very expensive! The buffet was great and FREE which was a bonus. The beds were very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again!

We stayed in this Hotel for a week from 6 August 2012 and had a great time. It is really well situated for the Reagan Airport as well as the Metro for DC.Not to mention Alexandria Old town center. The hotel has a free shuttle to all of these also.
The rooms were clean and looked nice the staff were friendly (all of them) and nothing seemed too much trouble for them to make your stay nice. Breakfast was very nice - every morning.
Facilities such as the pool and gym as well as the computers and wi-fi were very convenient.
Although right next to a busy main road we were not troubled by traffic noise at all (our room was on the road side of the building too.). proximity to Old Town Alexandria was a wonderful and un-expected pleasure as this place has an amazing "vibe" with many really nice restaurants to choose from (many with live entertainment) in all price ranges. It gets better - the FREE hotel shuttle will drop you off and collect you from a central point there - just takes a phone call. Or if you prefer or want to go there straight out of the city, there is a free city trolly car running the length of Kings Street from the Metro station to the river.

We stayed here while on a trip to Washington, DC for 7 nights. It is convenient to D.C, and very affordable compared to all the other hotels in the D.C area. We booked a studio room and it was very spacious, and very clean! The hotel provides FREE 24 HOUR shuttle to the nearest metro station (upon request), airport (every hour), and to Old Town Alexandria (upon request), FREE parking, FREE breakfast and FREE wi-fi. It is located right off the freeway, and they have plenty of handicap parking which is another plus! The only issues we had is our bathroom was a walk-in shower and the floor was not level so every time you take a shower the water would drain outside the doorway onto the carpet in the hotel room, it was pretty minor but very irritating. The other issue is there are 2 steps you have to walk up to get into the hotel, well once you walk up the steps you enter the lobby through automatic doors, but for disabled people you use a ramp located beside the steps, but there is no automatic door. You actually have to open the door by yourself. So it makes no sense to have an automatic door for the non-disabled and a regular door for the disabled. So for that reason I gave them an overall rating of 4 instead of 5.

With free parking, free breakfast (which was great), quick, friendly and free shuttle service, and a WONDERFUL, well-equipped room, my husband and I could not have been more pleased with this hotel. It was totally worth staying off the main strip. The staff was kind and helpful and the hotel, in general, was nice and clean. We will definitely stay here again.

Absolutely unacceptable service and no effort to resolve my problem by front desk staff or manager since their occupancy is so high. If it wasn't so late I would be gone. Don't stay here as you will realize the amenities won't be available when you want them. Terrible location mixed in with freeways all around, hardly the true Old Town Alexandria experience I thought I booked on Priceline.com. This hotel manager claims to not be a Hampton Inn although the names says it is Hampton inn and suites old town. This is not Old Town Alexandria not even close to the real old town where shopping and dining are next door. Very confusing exits to even get near the place and more than likely you'll get an extra 20 minutes of driving to find it even with a computer. Other guests checking in said the same or worse of finding this place. When a hotel doesn't care about us as guests then I'll rate them as crappy. The breakfast better be great. Note the pool doesn't open til 2 pm as their life guard does show up til then. A lot of good that does anyone who did DC all day or might want to swim in the morning.

Thank you for your comments on the hotel. The actual name of the hotel in the Hilton Directory is Hampton Inn Alexandria Old Town Area South. Due to the restriction on the number of characters that Priceline has on the listing of the name of the hotels, the Area South words were missing. We are currently in the process of working with Priceline to add that. However, we are 1 1/2 miles away from the center of Old Town and we provide 24 hour free shuttle service. We do not want any guests mislead on where we are located and want all of our guests to enjoy their stay with us. The pool opens at 2:00pm - 10:00pm Monday through Friday and 10:00am - 10:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. We have found that most of our guests are out of the building in the mornings and returning in the late afternoons during the weekdays which is why the pool opens at 2:00pm. I hope you will consider our hotel on any future trips you have through the Alexandria area.
