“Budget Friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The location is central and near grocery stores, restaurants, and drug stores within walking distance. The hotel does not have an elevator and it does not have hair dryers, irons or ironing boards in the room. The hotel does offer mini frig and microwave however if you want to use the microwave you have to unplug the refrigerator. A coffee pot is in your room and it is not plugged in therefore you have to move it to an outlet or power strip to use. The bathroom does not have a toilet lid cover so be careful that nothing falls in that you don't want to. I did not feel comfortable walking around without shoes in the room because of the way the carpet looks. The lamp shades need to be cleaned along with the carpet. The hotel is located in a million dollar neighborhood and I did feel safe during the trip. I'm undecided if I would stay at this location in the future. Free breakfast each morning consist of fresh fruit, wrapped Danish and muffins along with juice. The parking is free!

Room Tip: Request a second floor room at the rear of the building but away from the stairs.

well... I stayed at this hotel at the end of April and while the room was comfy, the furniture was rather cheap and the sink faucet sprayed water everywhere. Their continental breakfast consisted of small blueberry muffins and small packets of orange or apple juice. --- disappointing to say the least. But the staff was friendly and the bed was firm.

We had scheduled a late night check in over the phone,but when we got to the hotel they told us Check in was only at 2 PM.We ended up paying more for a room to stay that night.The staff was friendly and the breakfast was okay.I'll probably stay here again when I come back to D.C.

Room Tip: Get to the hotel earlt to snag a room upgrade.

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.

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.

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.
