Super clean, super affordable, super friendly staff, super stay! I was a little worried that for the price it wouldn't be a nice hotel but I was wrong! Comfortable bed and so clean! Continental breakfast was pretty minimal but you're only two blocks from the metro. Make sure to reserve your room in advance for the best price.

I choose this Hotel as it had an affordable price and was near the subway ( 500M). Also they had a transfer to-from airport, which i used, at the time i needed; no wasting time. I advised them i expected ( many) merchandise from Amazom, and they kept all for mewithout pricing it. Decente breakfast from 6-10 Am. Very nice...

The Americana Hotel was not my first choice, but the conference hotel was fully booked, and I am very happy I ended up there. My conference did not allow for a lot of free time so I was looking for a comfortable, clean place to get a good night's sleep so I could operate effectively. The Americana really filled the...

The airport shuttle was well organized, easily available, clean and with a good driver. The facilities were clean and location was awesome. Price was great too for the area. Staff was nice and helpful. Small room but for the purpose was absolutely fine. Breakfast had some fruits but we did not use it much anyway having breakfast provided at another...

The Americana is a small motel like hotel in Arlington VA just a few minute walk to the crystal city metro station. The room was a decent size, no odors noted. The bed was king size and about average comfort for a hotel room. Only problem was the key card didn't work at first so had to head back to...

Stayed here while visiting the sites of D.C. Close to the metro, free parking and well kept, clean room plus a so-so complimentary breakfast. Facility is well maintained. Staying here is like entering a time warp...50's-60's vintage.

The first thing we noticed when we arrived was that this was a motel, not a hotel (it states so on the sign). It's also older than expected, but that wasn't a problem at all. Everything was clean, and the room was big and perfectly furnished. We didn't really try the breakfast, since we wanted to try a local place...

This hotel has a lot going for it. It is really handy to Washington, D.C. There are two Metro stations within walking distance. It is easy to get to Pentagon Fashion Center, the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, and Reagan National Airport. The hotel has free shuttles that will take you to and from Reagan National Airport, the two Metro stations,...

Awful experience. My husband and I are frequent travelers and VERY often stay at the cheapest hotels. Outdated rooms, uncomfortable beds, poor service, and gross breakfast is our usual. However- this is the WORST experience we've ever had- EVER. There was still trash in our room. It looked like the plastic part from store-bought cookies. This didn't bother us so...
