Towne Motel Alexandria is less than a 10 minute drive from the Jefferson Memorial downtown. It's also within walking distance of downtown Alexandria where you can find beautiful old brick buildings, exciting restaurants, and walk along the water front. The only negative about the location is that it's super close to the airport, so outside of the building you can... More

This motel is one of the cheapest in the area and conveniently located. It is only a ten minute walk to the metro. The room seemed clean, but the outside of the motel definitely needed some work. The AC was very loud, but kept the room warm. My biggest complaint is that there was anywhere from an eight of an... More

Stayed here because of proximity to what I wanted to do in Alexandria. Walking distance to metro was about 10 minutes without snow. I won't stay again. Bed covers didn't stay put while sleeping. Meaning the bed sheet became untucked and sleeping on the bed was uncomfortable. It felt like I was sleeping on a bed sheet over plastic. Bed... More

This is a descent motel for a good price, especially considering the area. It's right in the Old Town area and within walking distance to a Metro station. It has no bells or whistles, and no breakfast included, but if you're looking for an economical place to stay in a convenient location, this is a good option. Room was clean... More

OK, it's the cheapest place to stay near/in Old Town Alexandria. Our room was clean, but it was small, only had one chair for the three of us, and smelled not so good. The Towne Motel is a little tired. The good part is that it is 5 minutes from King Street and 15 minutes from Arlington National Cemetery. We... More

My friends and I were looking for an affordable place to stay in Alexandria that was still in walking distance of King Street and found Towne Motel Alexandria. We paid $80 for 2 nights. Spent most of our day and nights in D.C but while we were in the room itself it was fine. No doubt that it is an... More

My husband and I were on our way home to NJ from visiting family in NC when we decided to stay over night and didn't even book through Travelocity. The man was very helpful when we told him it was our anniversary, he gave us a couple of nice places to go for dinner.

It's a cheap motel. I wasn't expecting a lot for what I paid but they could use some improvements. First, no shampoo or conditioner provided. I brought my own but I was disappointed to see they didn't at least offer it. The little ledges in the bathroom that you set your stuff on was caked with soap residue and chunks... More

It was late night, 3am on a Friday night, a lot of places were booked, pickings slim... GROSS! What else can I say?! Had a bad feeling about this place when I went into the check-in area. First of all the room rate is misleading, had extra $20 charge for taxes and fees, (which I never encountered before, I come... More

We came because of the great rates, free parking, and proximity to everything (Alexandria and DC). The maids were very attentive to the rooms and detail. We couldn't get the fridge to cool well so we asked the front desk and somebody was over immediately to fix it. There was a smell of sewer gas was the only off-putting thing... More
