“Affordable with nice amenities.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Very good value for our family w/ 2 teens. The room was nice. Only complaint was that there was a musty smell, but the room itself appeared to be clean. Everything worked okay,TV, refrige, internet connection worked fine. We had the complimentary breakfast including, enjoyed making the waffles. Sat outside, there was very little seating inside, but I believe they open up other seating with imcliment weather. My girls swam in the outside pool (with lifeguard), it looked clean. Front desk staff was courteous.

Room Tip: Older 'motel style' some of the 2nd level rooms have a outside long walk from stairs to roo...

I needed a nearby hotel for an overnight stay so I searched for inexpensive. Found this motel - they had free wifi in the room, breakfast, even had a pool. So I booked it. Right off Richmond Highway, lovely pool, outside tables, and they put me in a room way back from the road, so it was quiet. The room was a little old, a little tacky - but it had a good tv, good internet, a fridge and a microwave and a coffee maker, four pillows to a bed, good working a/c and there is a Denny's right across the street. So far so good. Morning came - walked to the breakfast nook for breakfast, expecting cereal and muffins. Orange and apple juice, coffee, biscuits and gravy, eggs and bacon, make your own fresh waffles, bagels and muffins and toast and danish, hard boiled eggs in the fridge, along with jams and butter and cream cheese, and hot oatmeal and several kinds of cold cereal. And newspapers - WSJ and one other. The weather was good, so some ate outside, others watched the tv in the nook.Thoroughly great breakfast. Never going to be a 5-star hotel but great for an overnight stay. Nice people, and affordable.

Room Tip: I had a room back away from the road and it was very quiet.

I stayed here one night in a two bed room with my grandson. We had a room on the opposite side from the pool where we could park the car right at the door of the room.

The room was somewhat small but very adequate. There was a large desk with plenty of room for us both to sit in the two comfortable office chairs and use our laptops. The WiFi was quite good, with a bandwidthplace.com test of about 11 mbps download and 5mbps upload.. It was completely fine for streaming video. It was quiet all night, the beds were comfortable and the towels were of good quality. There were no cleanliness issues and although wear was apparent here and there we did not see anything that indicated that housecleaning did anything other than a very good job.

I have a service dog and I could not find a single patch of grass where he could relieve himself.

I booked a room for four nights through a 3rd party (Priceline). I've been staying in hotels while I look for housing in the area. When I checked in I was advised there were no more non smoking rooms and I would have to stay in a smoking room. The staff was very friendly but couldn't accommodate my request for a non smoking room. I'm a past smoker and thought it would be a little inconvenient but doable.
Unfortunately, it seems that the room was reserved for chain smokers and the smell of smoke was so thick I would wake up choking. There also isn't anyway to get ventilation in the room.
Overall the room was clean, the location was close enough for my daily commute into DC. It's an older motel without the bells and whistles but it fit into my budget. I would stay again, in a non smoking room.

My husband and I had a great stay at the Quality Inn in Alexandria. We honestly do not have one negative comment. Kudo's for their employee who serviced the breakfast room. She was wonderful and very accommodating. Wouldn't think twice about knowing where to stay the next time we are in Alexandria.

Sometimes it’s a great guest who brings the best out in us; we couldn’t do what we do if you were not receptive to us. We thank you for taking the time to let everyone know that you were completely satisfied with your stay Nisha the breakfast attendant loves when the guest come to enjoy the Deluxe Conational Breakfast she more than likely offered to make you a delicious waffle while you got all the other items you need for it, we hope you tired our new addition Sausage Gravy and biscuits, and we hope you will return again soon.

The staff at this hotel is wonderful, went out of their way to make our stay great. My husband is handicapped they made sure we were close to parking. Booked 2 rooms, made sure the rooms for our family were close together. Rooms were clean and the bedding was good. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

I stayed there for a week and found it to be a positive experience. The staff were friendly and courteous. When we arrived at our room, we noticed that one of the lamps did not work. We went to the front desk and with a smile, the clerk went to our room and changed the bulb right away. The Wi-Fi was not super strong or very stable, and the room felt stuffy and hot at night (this was in May by the way). There was a bit too much road noise to have the windows open so we went with the air conditioning which worked fine. The beds were comfortable and the room itself was pretty spacious which is good especially if have lots of luggage that you intend to have lying around, which was the case with us. It's right on highway 1 and there's a bus at the corner of the street that goes to the subway leading to downtown DC, which is where we wanted to go. The continental breakfast was edible but that's it, nothing special about it. After one breakfast at the hotel, we then went to Denny's across the street for the rest of week's breakfasts, which was very convenient and much better tasting. Our primary reason for staying there was the low price. Would we go there again? Not sure, but at least we would know what the expect and the experience was not a negative one.

Room Tip: Opt for the second floor, slightly less road noise
