“Great Value! Great Customer Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

I stayed at this property recently while passing through town. I had a long drive and was ready for a good nights rest. Front desk staff was wonderful. You don't find good customer service too much these days unfortunately. They were helpful in suggesting places for dinner and breakfast and also with directions. I was happy to have a nice clean room and I found it to be a great deal for the quality. I would definitely recommend this motel to anyone. Good location off the highway, friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms and an affordable price, what more could you ask for?

You can't beat the location. I was there for our last trip before school starts. The staff knew the area and was helpful. I would recommend this hotel if you are staying in the area. Great value. If you are looking for s place to stay that won't break the bank you found it.

This trip stared off on the "wrong side of the hotels bed" but Ms. Mills with her professional and friendly assistance changed the day. Wish I had found this place five days ago when we first arrived to VA. The room is clean, area is clean, staff is friendly all around, price is perfect AND my dog stays free.
Highly recommended!!!

Rooms are recently renovated and really nice. Greatest benefit though is pets are free. This is the only hotel in the area that I could find with this perk. Hotel is close to Old Town Alexandria (about a mile) and close the major interstates going into DC. Would have liked to see a free continental breakfast, but they did have coffee up front.

Pretty clean overall and nice and new. Stayed here for work for the week. Tv channel selection is small. The area has a few restaurants besides fast food. The front desk was helpful when asked questions and when i lost my key. Overall a good deal for the quality of the room

we were traveling through the area and found that Red Roof Inn was pet friendly. We have two 5 lb, malteses. there was no extra fee which we liked. It had a good area to walk the dogs. The units were redone a few years ago and were fantastic. The best item we liked was that the whole building was non smoking. staff was friendly and informative. This place is close to Mount Vernon. 6 miles away. we would stay again and recommend to our friends. The only complaint I would have was that the towels are rough feeling. Other then that it was a great stay.

Room Tip: Facility is pet friendly.

Being pet friendly is very important to us...We know that traveling with our four legged family members can be challenging at times. We work hard to make certain that all of our guests have the best stay possible.. Thanks for choosing RRI.

We arrived late on Friday night to the Red Roof. We had never stayed there and I was anxious about being in a new hotel. We have always stayed in Alexandria so I knew we would love the atmosphere but I wasn't sure about the hotel itself.

When we first walked through the door we were warmly greeted by the check-in staff, Ms. Mills. She was so warm and inviting that she immediately put all my fears at ease. She was also dressed VERY professionally, in a nice outfit and sophisticated pearls, not like the riff raff you usually see in hotels late at night. She got us checked in and told us where to go in just a few short minutes. Later when we called down the the front desk to ask a couple of questions she was immediate in her answering and so polite. (If more hotels had people like her working for them they would have more customers that leave happy!)

The room was wonderful. I love the hardwood flooring. Carpet in a hotel room is a very bad decision in my mind but they have beautiful hardwood in this one. The sink is a little high if you happen to be vertically challenged (or fun-sized as I like to call it) like I am, but only for teeth brushing and once you get the logistics of it down you are good to go. All in all a WONDERFUL stay at a WONDERFUL hotel in a great location.

If you are coming in on Richmond HWY from the South you have to pass the hotel and do a U-Turn right up the street, maybe 1/10 of a mile up to get in to the entrance but that would be the City of Alexandria's fault, not the RRI.

We will definitely stay here again! Love this area, love the close proximity to W, D.C. (About 6-7 miles up the George Washington Parkway), and LOVE this hotel!!!
