“Ordinary travelodge but great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

This is just an ordinary travelodge - clean, ok, nothing special and not esp cheap at $90 a night when we stayed - but its location makes it a winner. Alexandria is a brilliant place to stay to see Washington, and this hotel is 15 mins walk out of old town alexandria, which is a really lovely pretty old town, with great restaurants. This hotel is 15 mins walk from Braddock metro station which is 20 mins into central Washington or one stop from the Ronald Reagan National Airport. So you don't need to hire a car while you stay here - though there is free parking if you need it. You can also visit Washington's house at Mount Vernon without a car by taking the Metro - one stop to Huntington, where you get the 101 bus for $1.70 or something small like that and it drops you right at Mount Vernon.

It is on the corner of two main roads, so can be noisy. Ask for a quiet room - 129 is quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - the hotel is on the corner of two busy roads. Room129 is quiet. Or take earp...

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

I fully understand the saying, you get what you pay for. However, that does not excuse filthy living conditions. I specifically joined tripadivor to review my stay at this motel last week, March 18-20.

A discount motel does not need to be spacious, have extremely comfortable bedding, or major in room amenities, but it DOES NEED to have a moderate level of cleanliness. Specifically when it comes to linens and bedding.

I initially was willing to overlook the unvacuumed floor, but the deep sweat stains on the pillows, water marks littering the mattress, and holes in the linens pushed it too far.

It's not worth the discount--stay anywhere else no matter the prices.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

The location is nice, close to the metro station and about half an hour away from DC (if you take the metro). The hotel is clean and quiet, and the staff is friendly. I had booked a room with one bed which was the cheapest, but once I got to the hotel I requested a room with two beds instead and they were able to change my reservation at no extra charge. The hotel is close to a starbucks, a trader joes (the room has a mini fridge and microwave), and walking distance to old town Alexandria. I would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed this motel by chance. I found staff very friendly and cooperative. Rooms are old but clean. High speed Internet is great.
Continental breakfast is fairly good and this facility is the key difference from other motels. Walkable metro station & restaurants. I will definitely recommend to others.

A small but cle4an motel close in to the Old town section of Alexandria and convenient as a starting point for a visit to Washington DC, just 4 miles up the road. Comfortable rooms, quiet and plenty of parking off street. A light breakfast in the morning. No restaurant or microwave, but there is a gas station convenience store cross the street for last minute stuff. The price is much lower than other lodging in the area. I'd stay there again.

Let us be clear if you are expecting this to be a top class hotel you will be disappointed. But that is not what it says it is. It is a clean, well appointed motel. It is easy to access Washington DC from here, use the Braddock Road metro station, 5 minutes away. It is excellent for Old town Alexandria, take a walk through the historic streets of Alexandria, see the munitions factory artist colony. But don't say this is a poor hotel. It is what it says it is.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

If you are not picky about hotels, the Travelodge Alexandria might be the place for you. Speaking as a non-picky person, I mean that in the nicest possible way. The Travelodge Alexandria gives you a comfortable place to sleep in a good location, within walking distance from old-town Alexandria and the metro. And it's cheaper than practically anywhere else. That's what you get.

Your room will be functional and clean enough, but it will smell strongly of disinfectant and will not be nicely decorated or well maintained. The staff will not be friendly and the continental breakfast will not be good. If you are OK with these things, the Alexandria Travelodge is a good option.
