“Worst hotel stay ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

These pictures aren't accurate. This was the nastiest hotel I have ever stayed in, & it came recommended by a phone travel agent. We thought there were few hotels in the area, but we learned later, that wasn't the case, or we wouldn't have stayed at this roach motel. The carpet looked like it was the same since the 60s. Toilet seat was very old too. There was no elevator to the 2nd floor, so we had to take the stuffy, hot, smelly stairs & hallway. Man at the desk was nice, but he was behind bullet proof glass. Yes, it is only 7 blocks from the metro, but you have to walk through questionable areas. We paid $109, & it wasn't worth 10 bucks. It looked like a 60s hotel that hasn't been updated for 50 years. We returned to our room to find someone came in the door & turned our TV off even though we put the privacy sign on the door.

Rafat M, Manager at Travelodge Alexandria, responded to this review, July 11, 2013
We are concerned to learn that you were not satisfied with our services and appologize. We try our best to make the stay of our customers as comfortable as possible and that is the reason that you will find our customers remarks are mostly possitive. Recently we have changed the mattresses, place new LCD tvs in the rooms with new bed skirts and blankets. We are only 2 story building and thus have no esclaters. We would have also appreciated if the front desk manager was informed about your observations so that he could have addressed them immediately.
