“You pay for what you get...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

And I pretty much got what I paid for, hence the 4 stars. It was clean, no bed bugs, very friendly front desk as well.

The heater in the room works REALLY well and the shower took a while to get hot but once it did, it stayed nice and hot. Convenient parking right in front of rooms.

Heck, you get what you pay for and for what i paid, I was quite satisfied.

Really thin walls though...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

In the 1960s, when this style of motel was in vogue, it was always possible to order an in-room breakfast. This motel had clearly discontinued that practice at around the same time they discontinued any form of building maintenance (sometime in the seventies, I suspect).

Old and tired (the property, not me ;) Wi-Fi worked in room, but not well enough for normal use. This place is well past its use-by-date.
I arrived late at night by car and did not check Trip Advisor. I paid the price for such foolishness.
The idea of staying in a motel outside of Washington and commuting has merit. But stay somewhere other than the Budget Inn at Falls Church.

Stayed September 2012, traveled solo

Bug in the bathroom, towels and sheets stained and it's expensive. When you close the door to the room, you can see the sunlight and the bottom of the door. Nice way for bugs to enter.

By far the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in. I slept on a towel...enough said.

Don't stay here. Bed bugs, peeling paint, dirty bathrooms, floor falling apart, old rusty vents, dirty carpets; door wouldn't lock. Management would not refund or pay for bed bug treatment to our home. Go to a Motel 6.

This MOTEL not hotel was horrible. My husband and I usually travel economically smart so when booking this motel we thought we were getting a good deal. When we arrived in the town we felt we were in a seedy area. The room was even worse. There were spots on the carpet, chairs and walls. Who knows what was on the comforters and sheets. The fabric on the chairs was torn. The towel rack in the bathroom was broken off and the toilet seat was too small for the base. It reeked of smoke even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room. The TV didn't work and there was no internet service on premise as advertised. Oh and the card didn't work on our door so we had to bring over the front desk clerk to open it with a master key. Clearly we decided not to stay the night. To make matters even worse when we indicated our unhappiness to the front desk clerk she said she can show us another room but cannot refund us. We looked at the other room and it was even worse. She refused to help us any further. Since she didn't speak much English we had no choice but to call the next day to speak to the manager. She said he'd be in then. We called and of course he wasn't there. We left a message, no call back. We called the next day and again he wasn't there and again left a message with no call back. For reasons I won't get in to we believe the manager was there and they lied to us.

I highly suggest you not stay at this motel. We were able to find a wonderful Marriot Residence a few towns away for the same price of $85.

I took pictures of this all and included them here with my review.
