Hotel is clean, and the staff was friendly enough, but the hallways smell really bad. The hotel looks like it's ready to be torn down. Breakfast was mediocre at best. Room AC is loud and hard to adjust. Decor is awful. Whole foods is close by for better coffee and breakfast. If you are looking for a cheap but clean room - this is it.

I appreciated the thorough reviews which were spot on in terms of what to expect with this hotel. As was said, you need to get over the outward appearance and see the hidden gem in the hotel. The rooms are clean and have been updated (bathrooms are old but spotless) and you can't beat the value- free breakfast and free parking which really is a big savings. Don't be fooled by the outward appearance, this hotel is situated in a great area (in fact there's an Embassy Suites Hotel right next door and a Whole Foods right down the block) that is close to everything. One bonus that we didn't anticipate is that the Trolley Tours and DC Hop on Hop Off Tour buses stop right in front of the hotel on their way to DC. The first stop is about 9:15 for the DC tours and 9:20-9:40 for the Trolley Tours. Trolley Tours also arranges to drop you off (it's a 5:30pm trolley at their first stop which is their Welcome Center). Yes, there are some oddities at the hotel like the fact that some of the rooms' wall air conditioners are located in the hallway which means that the hallways are warm from the heat/exhaust of the AC. The rooms themselves are comfortable and the AC runs well and I experienced no issues with our room. All in all, it was a great experience and the hotel had a really nice, warm feeling. I'd definitely stay there again.

We booked this hotel as a stopover before going off to Baltimore, we booked it because it was one of the cheapest with free parking and breakfast, just a place to rest our heads after a long flight from the UK and I suppose we got what we paid for. Don't get me wrong, it served it's purpose, the staff very accommodating, the room was nice and clean and the breakfast was good, but the hotel needs a lot of updating. There was a musty smell in the lobby and the car park has seen better days, but all in all, it served it's purpose cheap and cheerful.

stayed here last week for 5 nights. Room very clean and everything we needed. Enjoyed our breakfast every morning, staff were very helpful and friendly good sized fridge. Shops nearby to buy drinks etc. Extra bonus of free wi-fi and free parking. Would stay again if ever going to Washington DC for a holiday and would recommend

This is my 3rd time staying in DC at the Americana over the course of the past 3 years, and I’ve never been disappointed! Super knowledgeable, friendly staff- same faces year-to-year, which I find remarkable! And especially in the DC area, you cannot beat their free breakfast and free parking. The value is amazing! Don’t let the old style motel building fool you- it’s clean and well cared for, just everything’s a bit dated in a purposeful way to match the older style of building- cute, IMO! Close to a metro stop also!! I plan to be staying here next year as well!
