We heard about the Hotel from a co-worker. I was told if you wanted a clean safe reasonably priced hotel in the DC area this is the place. I honestly could not agree more. The Americana exceeded our expectations in every area. We met Celeste upon check in she got us our rooms helped us to make a change due... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. Air conditioning was great and it was nice and quiet. Metro service was very close once we found it, which made it easily accessible to DC sites, which was why we were there. The rooms are great. I wish there had been a mirror... More

Bed was clesan. Tbhe sliding glass door had a gap when closed that let in street noise and also didn't make me feel very safe. At night, the neighborhood around the hotel doesn't feel safe for a single gal traveling solo. The staff were nice enough. Driver was very helpful.

We had a bit difficulty to find the hotel. The entrance has no lights or signs to find it at night (when we arrived) but the hotel even though old, has good accommodations, clean and serves a nice breakfast

we've stayed here twice and have just booked another stay in a couple of weeks. We are retirees who travel all the time. We appreciate value and comfort and friendly staff that is always ready to help. The free parking coupled with a hotel shuttle bus means easy access to many more restaurants without driving or parking. The rooms are... More

My boyfriend and I are both 21 years old and stayed in this hotel for our very first visit to DC. And we LOVED Americana (and DC:) )!! We did not want to pay an arm & a leg for a hotel room in the city, so we opted for a hotel outside of the city. We were unsure, really,... More

Unlike the chain hotels in the area, this was a more quiet and laid back hotel. It was clean and modern, with a more personal touch than a chain. Rooms were nice and spacious as well. They had donuts and coffee out all the time, which was nice. It is close to restaurants in the Arlington area, and the subway... More

This motel is close to Reagan National Airport, and shuttle service is available. Also nearby are the Crystal City Shops, a partly underground retail area. The Crystal City Metro station is about two blocks away, and from there the Yellow Line can take you straight into the center of D.C. The motel itself is a vintage 1960's property, but it... More

This was the cheapest option I could find close to DC and it was pretty good. It's old but well maintained inside, clean, and the workers are very friendly. I had booked a deluxe king room and it was very basic which was fine. Nothing like the bright colorful pictures but still nice. We stayed for one night and spent... More
