“Great hotel for the price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend when we went to visit our daughter and son-in-law who just moved to Alexandria, VA from Miami in December. The hotel is directly across the street from their apartment complex so we chose the Red Roof Inn for its location and the price. The hotel's rooms have been recently updated and are very modern. Hardwood (or laminate-not sure) floors instead of carpeting make this hotel pet friendly and perfect for keeping the clean look. I liked that the sink area was separate from the toilet and shower area. The only think I was slightly disappointed in was that the bed and pillows were too hard. It would be a problem for a longer stay, but for overnight, I was ok with it. We will definitely stay here again.

Spent three nights at this Red Roof inn and had a wonderful stay. We picked this hotel due to its newly renovated rooms and easy access to the huntington metro station. It was wonderful! Just a 20 minute ride from the smithsonian museums! The rooms were large and comfortable, and the staff was very nice! The rates were really good. We had a front room, so my only complaint would be the noise of the road in front of the hotel. A little sound proofing might be nice, but didn't stop me from getting a few great nights of sleep. I plan to make a note of how great this hotel was for my next trip back to the DC area!

We choose this Red Roof Inn since we had to drop off for an early morning flight at DCA. Location was great for airport, We have been greatly pleased with the Red Roof Inns we have stayed at recently and this is no exception! Our room was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. We had a King room, so we had a refridgerator and microwave in it and also a very nice desk area. Being winter, the heat worked well! Staff was pleasant and friendly! Being a no-fee pet friendly benefit for us.
Would definitely come back and stay!

Spent an overnight in Alexandria on a 1 night business trip with family tagging along. The hotel was very clean , newly rennovated and very comfortable. No problems at all. Beds were comfy, hotel was quiet, pets were allowed so my well behaved standard poodle was equally happy. Price was good, for 3 people and poodle I paid $89.00. Good restaurants nearby. Overall a good deal. I would recommend it to others and would stay there again. I was not interested in exercise amenities so I didnt notice.

Clean rooms, close to DC and good price for the area. I was here for one night only, but then I had to come back to DC area and I booked it again for two more nights. I really recommend this hotel, even on vacation since you don't want to spend time at the hotel.

My wife and I stay here when we come to DC. The rooms are very good and super close to a Metro stop! Being pet friendly is awesome! Sarah is very helpful at the front desk. I will continue to stay here especially for the value and location.
