“Great close-in budget option, esp. for 7+ night stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is a modest motel that delivers top value for the price. If you stay 7+ nights and opt for housekeeping 3x/week, the rate is exceptionally reasonable. I couldn't find another comparable rate (or anything even close) inside the Beltway -- and this location is exceptionally close to DC. Seems to be family-owned and the staff are welcoming & very helpful. Other pros include: very clean; close-in location, with super easy car access to DC (per GoogleMaps, 7min to Georgetown; 10-12min to downtown or the Mall); free outdoor parking; new mattresses (better than mine at home); small fridge (quiet) & small microwave (noisy) in room; small but attractive newly done bathrooms; quiet guests (during our 10-day stay); safe neighborhood; and a good bus connection to Rosslyn Metro. If you're cooking during your stay, Giant & Safeway are a close walk, and it's not much more than a mile to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in Clarendon. (Lots of great restaurants there if you're not cooking.) Cons for some: no exercise room, pool, or other amenities; mediocre coffee (but Starbucks is close) and skippable continental breakfast; and need to take a bus or walk a mile to Metro. At this price point, I know of no better option for a 7+ day stay. Call the desk to make your reservation & discuss long-stay options.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I was a little hesitant about this motel as it is not in a great area and was way cheaper than anything else in the same area. We got there and the lobby is unimpressive but the staff was friendly and helpful. We got to out rooms and they were modestly appointed, but very clean. I was surprised at how comfortable the beds were. Our stay was quiet and uneventful--as we like it to be. We did not partake of the breakfast as we were in a hurry--but it looked like yogurt, fruit, coffee, juice. If you want a bare bones kind of place to stay that is clean, convieniently located, and inexpensive then this is a good place to try. Not near a metro station though.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

My experience, in any case, was awful. The motel is basically set in an "industrial" part of Arlington inside the community of Cherrydale; car lots, 1 strip mall, car repair stations. There are really no amenities at this motel. I felt bad for the one employee at the front desk who was working there. It's just a motel to sleep for a night. Would definitely not recommend brining families. The absolute worst part was that my toilet was broken! It overflowed all over the floor and they didn't have anyone to fix it. It's a basic, low-end motel, in my opinion.

I guess the Pro's are that you're close to a lot of things in Arlington and D.C. if you have a car, or a short cab ride will get you there, too (e.g., Ballston/Courthouse/Clarendon/all D.C.).

I had booked this hotel for it's location for a weekend get-a-way to DC as it's very close. Also only a 2 a minute drive to Arlington National Cemetery. The area seemed safe. The room was clean and acceptable. The room came with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot. The fridge came in handy, there is a Safeway grocery store withing walking distance, a 30 sec. drive. Overall, my experience was satisfactory.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The hotel had two levels (no lift) and very steep driveway. It was an older style hotel that has been maintained well. The rooms were reasonable size for four people. It was really clean and the staff at the desk were all really good people. They had good knowledge of the area and were really helpful. Thanks people for making our stay so pleasant.

The bus stopped 100 metres from the front of the hotel. The number 2 bus took you directly to the nearest Metro underground station (Roslyn) about 3 kilometers away and from there it was easy to catch the Metro to the City, get off at the Smithsonian Station to walk to most of the sites.

The complementary breakfast consists of tea or coffee and prepackaged muffins of danish. There is no breakfast room, you tend to eat and drink in your room.

There was a really nice Diner, (Diner 29) down the road about 2.5km. Ask the front desk people for more details.

We would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage book a room on the ground floor. If you have mobility issues, beware...

Stay here Sept. 28 thru Oct. 5th. Check in was easy. Staff friendly helpful and just plain good people. Room is a simple room with microwave and fridge TV and bed. Bus stop convenient and quick trip to the metro. Everything was awesome. No funky smells or anything, stayed on the bottom floor. We brought our own breakfast but used their hot water for oatmeal and I enjoyed their fresh coffee every morning. Would totally stay again.
