“Quiet, Convenient, A Little Dated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This Hampton Inn has great convenience - about 1 1/2 blocks from the DC Metro. Breakfast is typical of Hampton Inn. The A/C in the hallways apparently did not work, but the hotel rooms had nice frigid air. The rooms were quiet, and internet worked nicely. The Alexandria Trolley picks up directly in front of the hotel and great shopping/eating is within walking distance. Devon, one of the clerks, is a spectacular help.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Close to the Metro. Good staff. SLOW elevators. Great for a business trip. Attempted to check in early (about 11:30 am) and no go. Told to return at 12:30 pm -- still no go. Finally got in room about 1:30 pm. A bit frustrating but to be fair I was early. Area is great. Seems safe at all hours although most restaurants are about 3 blocks away toward the river on King Street.

Room Tip: Easy walk to King Street Metro.

I needed a hotel close to the Metro line and safe as a single female walking around to and fro late at night and early in the morning. I had great service from the staff, the room was clean and comfortable, the complimentary breakfast was really good and well stocked. I would definitely come back again.

The hotel was satisfactory in almost all regards except for the roll away bed which we just unusable. It was outrageous that the hotel actually wanted to charge $20 for using it. They did refund our money when we returned it unused. None of our three boys could sleep on it because you could feel each and every pieces of metal through the mattress. Our one son preferred to and did sleep on the floor instead of using that roll-away bed. The location however was excellent!!! Provided parking under the building was inadequate with not enough spaces for guests particularly if you did not have a compact car. Guests in minivans were literally climbing out of their rear door because there was no room to get out of their side door

This Hampton Inn is conveniently located near the DC Metro Transit system, has great restaurants and bars near by in walking distance. Hotel also has good week end rates but very high room rates during the business week. Not very attractive for a family during the week.

Except for cramped parking area, we had a great stay! Our room was clean and comfortable. Hotel was very convenient to Metro and Alexandria's Old Town, so once we parked we didn't have to drive again until we left. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Would stay there again.

Hamptons hotels are always very pleasant for my family and I to stay at while being away from home. The quality of the rooms and guest services are always wonderful. The breakfast in the mornings are always delightful and gives my family a nice start of the day.
