This is a great hotel with friendly staff. It offers an inclusive continental breakfast that offers a lot choices including eggs, sausage gravy & biscuits, and a waffle station. It's certainly a great start to any sightseeing day! They offer a very convenient shuttle service to and from the metro to get into downtown Washington DC. I've literally never waited... More

Your typical American 2 start yet clean, friendly staff (we had a dog and they were very accommodating), and a good location if you are going into DC metro. We are going back in a few days and will stay there again, hope they keep it up!

The hotel is close to the van dorn metro station which unfortunately was on the other side of a metro planned closure requiring a metro shuttle bus to pentagon city which pretty much meant we had to drive around instead of taking the metro which I realize is not the hotels fault. The hotels shuttle driver did offer some great... More

This hotel is priced well for the budget minded. It is a true hotel, not a motel like so many Comfort Inns are. We were on the top floor with a nice view. We stayed here six nights with little difficulty even though we had two teenage boys with us. They were angels and we wore ourselves out. The hotel... More

Just spent the night but had a great 2 room suite close to the Metro. Breakfast the next morning was very good and a very nice eating area as well. The rooms were clean and neat. My only complaint is that the air conditioning unit in the bed room was noisy and didn't seem very efficient. Definitely a place to... More

I was surprised by the cleanliness and attention paid to guests at this hotel. Rooms were spacious and safe. Our booking came with a free breakfast which was quite enjoyable. Facilities like washing machines are really well kept and your belongings are safe in them.

If you are wanting to visit Old Town Alexandria or even DC, but don't want to pay the high prices plus add ons, this hotel is reasonable and well situated. They have a shuttle to the Metro and are a short drive to Old Town and Mt. Vernon. Rooms are clean, parking is ample and there are restaurants close by.

the people are helpful, place is clean and close to mall and metro. The room is clean and bed was comfortable. Have a hot breakfast to start your day which is a plus. The area can get jammed with traffic sometimes and might help in having a little patient when driving

We've stayed at this hotel more than once and it's worked for us every time. The closest metro station isn't too far (we used the hotel shuttle) and access/traffic is reasonable.

Nice hotel if visiting the DC area without the high prices of DC. Didn't like that they add a charge for in room safe that we didn't use. May want to see if that could be deleted. Also entrance to the hotel is very hard to enter or exit since it is on a hillside and close to stop light.
