“A pleasant stay in a fine hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

We stayed one night while in town for musical entertainment. The hotel has an interesting ambiance, as the corridors twist and turn through the building. The staff was friendly and the room was very clean. We had no problems at all with the facilities and the staff were all friendly. Breakfast was the usual buffet, with both hot scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs.

The location makes getting to get to Crystal City and Reagan airport a short drive. The rooms are a little older but CLEAN. Clean is important to me. Breakfast had the usual choices including eggs, waffles, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc. The staff was friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Washington St. are quietest.

I have never written a hotel review before, and we are a family who go for vacation at least 3 times every year. We always look for budget hotels and cleanliness is the top most criteria in our requirement. Our daughter found this one for us for our recent trip to DC. I am so thankful and happy for her find.
It is clean, spacious and has a beautifully preserved old world charm. I loved the white linens. The breakfast was awesome too. There was everything for everybody, and plenty. Spacious dinning area was another great plus point.
The hotel is just few miles from Lincoln Memorial, and there is a beautiful view of DC from a marina close to the hotel.
I will suggest this hotel to everyone who are looking for a pocket friendly feel good hotel.

Good location with shuttle to Old Town Alexandria and environs. Nice breakfast, hotel dated but clean with helpful staff. No ice machine but bags if ice available in freezer. Internet was fair. Quiet, set back from main road on a little side road.

I just wanted to say thank you for a great experience after coming to Virginia to lay my father to rest at Arlington Cemetery, the staff here was excellent and very accomodating. during this stressful time, we encountered that we had locked our suitcases and left the key at home, I had called down the night before and they said maintenance will be here at 6am, mike who was on that day was quick to respond with a hack saw which I then was able to retreive my dress cloths for that day, thanks again for being to fast and prompt to respond mike, we greatly appreciate you all!!!
I can't say enough about the staff from the arrival, to our departure, from front desk, maintenance, houskeeping, driver and breakfast attendant, you all did a remarkable job and were very friendly, and I wish you all the best in life, god bless and I hope to stay there again one day.
I hope I did not forget anyone to praise...great job everyone!!!

Sincerely

Brad Childers from Ohio

Room Tip: maybe get a room close to your parking but even on the second floor your still not much futher away...

The Old Colony Inn is in an excellent location to the Smithsonian in DC & shuttle service is offered to the closest Metro Station. This was a huge plus instead of driving & finding parking. Some folks had to wait 30 minutes to be picked up at the Metro station but we didn't have that experience. The shuttle will also take you/pick up to & from Old Town Alexandria until 8:45 pm daily. The hotel itself is older with a quaint brick exterior to match the general building theme in Old Town but was updated & clean. Our double room was small with updated linens, shower & sink. Two queens would have been preferred. The staff were very accommodating, helpful & quick to respond to questions. We enjoyed free parking, a decent breakfast & could walk to the nearby Giant grocery as needed. The only downside was no elevator but someone is available to help with luggage. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was comfortable and clean. It is close to Washington DC, Arlington National Cemetery and downtown Alexandria. The staff is helpful and courteous. The shuttle service is adequate and the driver courteous and helpful.
