“Clean, quiet, secure & simple room--at an economical price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

I stayed here for one (1) month in October-November 2011 in a clean, quiet, secure, non-smoking room on the ground floor--and was satisfied with my accommodations. This hotel was formerly an "EconoLodge" in the past so that is basically the class-standard that you will find there today. The weekly room rate was economical compared to other expensive Washington hotels. This budget hotel location was convenient to a delicious Thai restaurant (Thai Time), Italian delicatessen (Italian Store), two supermarkets, dry cleaners, Metro bus stops and other neighborhood shops within a 1-3 block walking distance. The staff seem to be from Pakistan, Palestine and Ethiopia--and were all friendly and helpful during my stay. It's not the Hilton, Hyatt or a Holiday Inn--but it's more like a Motel-6 with clean, quiet, secure and simple rooms at a budget price. I had a good experience there and would return again in the future.

Decided to give this a try based on reviews and my finances. I didn't have the price for a $175 hotel room closer to DC. This motel turned out to be perfect. The bus stop was across the street and 1 block down. From there it was 3 or 4 stops to the subway into DC...very fast. I was at the US Capitol in less than 20 mins. at 8:40a.
There are lots of restaurants, grocery stores, banks, pharmacies...anything you might need from 1 block to no more than 1 mile. The front desk was very nice and informative. Marta will try to answer any question you have. The room was more than adequate. Comfortable beds and the facility was quiet and safe. Parking is right by the room. There is a refridg., microwave and tv...oh, and high speed internet. Don't give this a 2nd thought unless you just love being ripped off. I stayed here the first day of my week long trip and came back on the last day of my trip and paid $88 that day. Nice!

The girl that was working when we checked in was nice, Rooms are VERY SMALL but its just a place to sleep so unless your a princess cant complain they say flat screens BUT NOPE its not like what you think its a tv with a huge back! HBO SUCKS! theres 1 CHANNEL FOR IT ITS IN SPANISH! Internet BROKEN!!! i read other reviews about the internet not working from a long time ago before we stayed so apparently its never been fixed, it will connect to your or ipod but wont have the internet access so i had to steal internet from someone else down the road from hotel BUT other than that the rooms are CLEAN the hallways are very hot and does stink like cigarettes theres a mini fridge with freezer and microwave a/c CVS is about 2 blocks down along with pizza hut which is actually like 15ft away with chinese and something else next to pizza dunkin donuts is a few blocks down the opposite way of cvs NEIGHBORHOOD IS NICE!! VERY NICE!! we stayed here when visiting d.c. cuz the reviews for d.c. hotels was really bad neighborhoods but its a cheap place to stay with free parking cant complain much

This hotel is hard to rate, because it is unusual. It is quite cheap for the area, and is in a great location. It is surprisingly quiet, has great high-speed internet, a small refrigerator and microwave and a decent television. It was generally clean and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. It's an older hotel, but in very good shape.

On the down side are a few small but nagging issues. The beds were not uncomfortable, but the sheets were quite threadbare...and I'm not the type to notice this kind of thing. The towels needed a little fabric softener and the bathtub did not have a plug, which is an issue with young kids.

These issues are minor. If you want to visit DC on a budget, this is definitely the way to go. You can walk to Metro (i think it's about a mile) or you can drive to the Ballston Mall (about 5 minutes) and park there ( $8 for all day) and take the Metro from there.

Room Tip: They had weekly rates listed, ask for them.

I was flying in for a meeting and responsible for my own lodging in that area. I chose Inns of VA because for this time everywhere else is charging > $200 per night. So the decision was based mostly on budgeting. Keep in mind in off seasons I have stayed in the Holliday Inn nearby for $80 a night with almost 4* experience. So shop around.

Okay here's the good:
+ Good price;
+ All staff are very friendly and answered phone requests immediately;
+ Decent location (~ 2 miles from airport and most gov agencies);
+ Calling a taxi is pretty easy using the courtesy phone in the lobby.

And the bad:
- Hard to get to/from the subway. It's 2 miles from the Rosslyn station. When walking in the snow and rain is out of the option you have to take a bus or taxi;

- Entry way is a steep slope without stairs and walking up/down can be dangerous in the rain;

- Smoke-smell throughout the hallway - even though most of the 2nd floor where I stayed are smoke-free. Inside it is better but there are smoke smells near the headboard and walls;

- Internet is free but intermittent. Will drop every 10 minutes. When worked it was amazing, like 20 Mbps down, 10 Mbps up. And it's wifi-n;

- Has a good sized fridge. NO microwave in the room as advertised. Told they were pulled due to tripping breakers;

- Very smaller room and motel-quality furnitures. No closet - just a clothrod at corner of the room.

- 1/3 of the TV channels didn't work. Has HBO though;

- Thin walls. It scared me at the very beginning when I can hear someone opening doors constantly before I realized that's the rooms outside of mine;

Overall a no-frill experience as I got what I paid for (during this peak business months of course).

We were pleased with our stay. The room was suitable for our stay, no frills, but quiet and clean. The location was very convenient for us to travel to the musuems and memorials in downtown DC. It was convenient both to drive or to access the park and ride for the subway, as well as accessing restaurants. The staff was friendly and available. The only problem we had was the internet. It was down most of the time or, if we could get access, it was pretty slow. The continental breakfast was low key, but fine, nothing fancy. Overall it was fine for the price.

We had to find a room after the nightmare storm / traffic on Jan. 27th. Inns of Virginia came through even though their power was out. The staff was fantastic. They made a sandwich for my 6 year old. They got us blankets to keep warm in the night. Had breakfast waiting in the morning. And even apologized for the power outage by giving us a discount. Thanks for giving us a safe and clean place to shelter in the storm.
