Rev. Butler and I would like to thank the staff of Old Colony Inn for making our 45th Marriage anniversary very special, our three day stay from July 15 to July 17 was great.

Quiet location with helpful and friendly staff. Spent 4 nights in a great room with comfortable mattresses. Free parking, free shuttle to Reagan Airport, trains and Downtown Alexandria. 15 minutes walk through safe area to King St. with different great restaurants, bars and stores. Would like to come back just for visiting Alexandria.

The hotel is not far from Braddock metro, and there is free shuttle service provided. There is not much around the hotel, but a short walk will get you to some places for dinner. The rooms are standard and clean. The bed was very comfortable and there was a great selection of pillows. The bathroom was not updated, but still... More

I have not stayed in a Best Western for years, but my husband booked us a trip seeing Washington D.C. and wanted to stay just outside of the city. We stayed here and I was impressed. Seems like all the Best Westerns have gone a renovation and our room was very spacious, clean, and overall very nice. Best of all... More

I wanted a decent hotel in Old Town Alexandria that provided free parking, after experiencing the obligatory parking fees in DC earlier this summer. This little hotel provided so much more! The staff was, without exception, professional, courteous, considerate & accommodating. The room was super clean, the beds super comfy. The water pressure & temperature of the shower were perfect,...

This hotel was perfectly located for Washington DC travelers...although a little hard to find at first because it is not on the main street. Lots of Pros including the price...very reasonable for that area. It was a short shuttle ride to the Braddock station. The indoor parking garage was great. The room, although dated, was clean and comfortable. The breakfast... More

This hotel is in a great location and the exterior and interior brick is beautiful. The front desk person needs to be personable and offer best customer service. A front desk person should not have a dismissive attitude. The rooms need completely remodeled. The bedding and towels need replaced. The price is good but I would have paid more for... More

Hotel is older and could use some cosmetic touches. However, our room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful, shuttle drivers were great, and location is excellent. Will definitely stay again, if ever in the Washington area.
