“Not the best Hampton Inn, but still better than most other chains”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Checked in on a Friday night with plans to visit Mt Vernon on Saturday. When I walked in, there was no one at the front desk. I waited, looked around, began to get slightly impatient. Finally another guest said "oh she is helping that party in the breakfast area". A few minutes later, an associate appeared. We were checked in with no problems. I inquired about some delivery menus, as it was getting late for our little one and there is really nothing nearby. I was given a nice bundle of options. We found our room with no problem. After staying in a king suite on a recent trip, the room seemed small by comparison, but it was a typical Hampton Inn room. Comfy, clean...but LOUD! Oh my goodness! I could hear every shower turn on in the rooms around and over us, people walking, doors closing, people talking....Not used to a Hampton being so noisy. Breakfast was okay - typical unappetizing eggs, but again, with so many other choices, no one is going to starve! If we were to stay here again, I think i would opt for the king suite, just for the quiet factor. Also the rate was excellent - $77 on a Friday night. If you need to go to Northern VA/DC but dont need to stay right downtown, this would be a good option for the price! Also the italian restaurant right next door is EXCELLENT!!!! Super fast delivery too!

We stayed a couple of nights over the weekend and the hotel was fairly quiet. It looks brand new along with its neighbor. The room rate was $89 for a King Room, which is great for a Hampton Inn. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A good breakfast was included and Internet was fast and free. All this would make it a good choice, but what made these guys outstanding was the way they went above and beyond to help us make emergency repairs to our boat. Yep, they found us a space inside so that we could work on a 30 ft long racing shell overnight! Needless to say whenever we race again at the nearby Occoquan Reservoir we will be staying here. Outstanding.

Stayed as family to service member brought to Fort Belvoir for treatment. This hotel is, as has been, a notch above your standard chain hotel. Desk staff friendly, very helpful and answered our questions cheerfully. Room double beds, all standard amenities. No problems as mentioned by previous reviews. Breakfast decent, all in all very pleasant stay. Extra mention to Tamara, hotel staff. This hotel supports the Wounded Warriors Project thanks to her, and makes the stay of soldiers families a little less stressful. Thank you.

We had a room with two queen beds. The room was clean, just a little bit on the small side - it would probably have been a bit of a tight squeeze for more than two people. Beds and pillows were very comfortable.
Enjoyed the breakfast - regular selection of hot and cold food but all nice and fresh. The Manager and ktchen staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Hotel is in a very convenient location. We were able to drive to DC and back without any problems.
Checked in was swift and painless. Sorry, forgot her name, but lady who checked us in was super friendly.

There is no hot tub in the pool area and the swimming pool was too cold for us to enjoy. Management of the pool is outsourced to a third party, and the employee present at the pool (lifeguard) stated that although guests have complained about the cold pool for a month, nothing is done. Children shivering with blue lips and pool empty of any guests as a result. Disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. We appreciate your feedback, we are sorry for the condition of our pool. We will work with the 3rd party in attempts to get this corrected on a permanent basis. We hope we can have another chance to show you what our warm Hamptonality is all about here at our hotel, if your travels bring you back to the area.

Seeking a safe haven from Hurricane Sandy, we stayed at the Hampton Inn Mt. Vernon in Alexandria, VA. As soon as we walked into their lobby, we were warmly greeted by several staff members. Checking in was easy and friendly. We were invited to participate in their pumpkin carving. A hot meal (lasagna, potato salad, sandwiches, Halloween cookies, etc) was provided, as well as, large pumpkins and carving tools. Everyone was having fun. You couldn't tell there was a dangerous storm outside! Our room was large and very clean. We got a good night's sleep and no worries about the storm. In the morning, a warm breakfast with happy hotel guests, reinforced our idea that we made the right selection in seeking refuge during this dangerous storm. Kudos to the hotel staff who made every effort (successfully!) to make us feel safe and happy!!

Room Tip: We requested a suite with a king bed and sofa bed.

This nice hotel, I'm sorry to say, has bed bugs. My room and bedding looking nice and clean. However, when I woke up at 2:30 am to use the bathroom I noticed about 10 reddish-brown bugs of various sizes in between the sheets and under my pillow. I reported the problem to the manager in the morning when I checked out. We both went into the room so I could show him the bugs and he said they looked like bed bugs and would contact the exterminator. Other than that, the hotel and staff were fine!

LeeRByrd, Manager at Hampton Inn & Suites Mt. Vernon/Belvoir-Alexandria South, responded to this review, October 27, 2012
Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention so we could take immediate action to resolve the problem. You have our sincerest apologies for any inconveniences incurred. Steritech, our licensed exterminator, resolved the problem you encountered shortly after it was reported.

Once you notified us of the issue we immediately closed your room and the rooms on either side, below, and above your room. Steritech then inspected the aforementioned rooms and found evidence of pests in only the one room; the one in which you stayed. Next, the exterminator treated the room with a chemical agent. After that, all the furnishings in the room were heated to nearly 130 degrees for several hours to ensure a 100% mortality rate.

Unfortunately, these pests occasionally hitchhike in the luggage of domestic or international travelers and find their way into even the nicest hotels. Once again; you have our sincerest apologies. On your next visit to the area; please, consider staying with us again so we may show you how much you mean to us. Complete guest satisfaction is our highest priority.
