1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This place needs a renovation badly. The room smels of cigarette s, even though its a non smoking room. Its dirty. We actually cut short our stay there and moved elsewhere. The location is very far from the attractions.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

I rarely give bad reviews as I prefer to focus on good stuff, but this place really deserves a bad review. I stayed there with my wife for two nights only because we had paid in advance, and I could not get into a convenient alternative. It is an old style 1970s motel, and does not look like it has been attended to since then. The place needed painting, the furniture was scratched and poorly maintained, several of the lights did not work, there were no spare electric outlets, the bathroom was very dirty and untidy, and the place smelled of old cigarettes and cheap room spray.

Granted, you get what you pay for, but there is no need for a motel to be poorly managed and dirty. I waited in reception on arrival for ten minutes before anyone responded to my shouts for attention, and then it was surly. The ancient TV worked on a few channels only, and the wifi reception was so poor that we had to stand outside the room to get a decent signal.

Avoid this place. There are better reasonable cost options in the Falls Church area.

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...

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.

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.
