Situated in Arlington, this hotel is close to Reagan National Airport and offers free shuttles on request. Close to Crystal City metro on Yellow line, easy to get into DC and the attractions on the National Mall. Slightly dated hotel but v clean, friendly and family run with breakfast included so good value for a Washington stay.

This quirky 60's era is like a remnant of the past. First of all, it's much more of a motel with outside entry to rooms and not much of a lobby. Secondly, it's very close to everything by Metro or Uber. It's in a neighborhood that is changing and going upscale, so if you like you can stroll to Whole... More

Nice to see the history of this hotel, and it's conveniently located in the city. Stayed here several times, and it's consistently good clean and friendly. Check out the movie cameos before staying if you're interested.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on a two day getaway to D.C. She is a flight attendant and found out they give a crew member discount so we paid $70 flat for the night. It has a retro feel to it and is charming. The airport shuttle was great and saved us some money on a ride. Overall we... More

I found the Americana in Arlington by accident and it was an excellent decision to stay there. It was far enough from Reagan Airport to be quiet and close and convenient for trips into DC - Uber group trips cost only $5.50!! They provide free shuttle service around Arlington (with a shuttle driver who is both friendly and helpful) and... More

Yes, it was inexpensive but I booked because of the reviews of this being a timeless through back. It was sort of a shell of an old relic. There is a fine line between retro and just not updated, ever. This place dangles on that line, and is more the latter. It felt, and smelled, neglected. Free parking was great,... More

I booked this place on a Washingtonian's recommendation as an affordable, secure, clean accommodation, and it met all of my expectations. The reception staff gave good information and the continental breakfast and airport shuttle helped with our price line.

The hotel has a shabby chic look, its old but clean and perfect if you are in Washington for sight seeing. Very close to local shops and amenities, Crystal City Metro is just a stone throw; with links to wider Washington DC. The staff are friendly and the hotel is ideal for anyone who is on a budget but also... More

The hotel staff is very friendly, willing to shuttle you to restaurants, Metro and airport. The breakfast is very good. The room was clean and quiet. I plan to stay there again in 2016. My stay was in Sept., 2012

Really enjoyed our stay. Just an hour outside of Baltimore this motel was PERFECT. We work on the road several months out of the year and the Americana Hotel was a little slice of home for this mid-century modern furniture collectin' gal. Room was clean and comfortable, decor was very charming and one of my favorite details: Fabulous toiletries by... More
