The majority of the reviews for this hotel are correct; it's old, walls are thin, elevator is slow, shower was extremely weak. On a positive side, it's very clean, front desk staff is extremely helpful, shuttle was great, the hotel is close to the metro, we would stay here again. There is a continental breakfast which was great for a...

Friendly staff and welcoming lobby. This hotel is simple & to the point. Basic clean, nice rooms that have been converted from a motel to a hotel. Breakfast is included & consists of fresh fruit, cereal, oatmeal & pastries (nothing fancy but it puts enough carbs in the tank to get you going). The location is perfect, as you are...

The Americana is located between higher priced properties. A great value. It was clean and staff were helpful and friendly. Close to Metro stops making it a good place to stay while sightseeing in the DC area. Hotel is built in 1960s, but updated. Clean, Clean, Clean.

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Americana. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the facility. It is an oldest building which can be hard to maintain, but the owner and staff have done a great job. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The parking and location allowed to spend three whole days there...

This hotel is a bit dated but clean and very reasonable compared to the other hotels. They had a decent healthy breakfast. We slept well because the air conditioner took care of all the extraneous noises. It is close to the Metro and has a free shuttle to and from the airport as well as a number of other places....

Although this is an older hotel, the rooms were very clean, the beds very comfortable, and the service exceptional! Esther and her staff went out of their way to help us with dinner reservations, shuttle service, and directions. It is within easy walking distance to the Metro and to the Crystal City underground shops. A great place to stay!

I was looking for an inexpensive hotel to spend four days touring DC with my son, and the Americana was perfect. I will go over some of the things that may bother potential guests that expect more than just a clean room to lay their head, which is all we were really looking for out of this hotel. The building...

We expected average, but were disappointed how clearly the voices from the adjoining room came through the connecting plywood door. Couldn't get the wall-mounted air to turn on, just wanted the noise and fan -- heat wasn't a problem. Most hotels now provide too many pillows, here it was too few (2), too small, unpuffy pillows. It was not a...

The Bad: From the outside, the hotel looks pretty seedy. The rooms also have a somewhat aged feel to them. Really, those were the only negatives, now on to the positive side of things. The Good: Great price compared to other hotels in the area. Excellent location- about half a mile to the metro station. Some good restaurants within walking...
