The hotel doesn't pretend to be fancy and it isn't, but it's affordable, clean, and in a great location. The beds are comfortable and the A/C works. The staff is friendly and helpful. I stayed while doing a family trip in DC, and didn't have a car. The hotel is really close to good buses and the Metro.

Only 500 m to Virginia square station and then 4 stops and you are in the Downtown area of DC. 700 m the other way and you at Clarendon station. There are so many places to eat across a huge price range , you wont have any trouble finding something in your price range. We loved staying in Arlington and... More

When we travel, we like to stay, when possible, in locally owned motels and B & B's. The Highlander Motel in Arlington, is just such a place. It's an inexpensive location to stay & hang out when visiting the DC area. Situated roughly three blocks from the Metro Station & pubs and restaurants, its primarily residential location is quiet, clean... More

We needed a reasonably priced motel to stay, while working in DC. The Highlander is a family owned motel that had very good reviews on Tripadvisor- we were not steared wrong.. The motel is in a safe part of town, within walking distance of many restaurants. The bathroom was renovated and had one of the best shower heads and water... More

My sister and I just spent four nights at the Highlander Motor Inn. It was just as described in the reviews I had read. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was located in a very convenient place. The people at the desk were very helpful. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a refrigerator... More

A good place to stay if you want clean, comfort, cheap near the metro stop into Washington DC. Includes continental breakfast and GREAT motel hosts. Family owned and run. The pictures don't do this place justice. If you are there for the sights and don't intend to spend a lot of time in your hotel room, this is the place.

This is a small family run motel in Arlington, it is an older motel, but the rooms have been updated, they are spacious and the bathroom had a large walk in shower which was modern, the shower head had great pressure. The staff were friendly and helpful and they recommended places to eat. The motel is about a 8 minute... More

We had relatives coming to town and once again turned to this fine neighborhood motel to provide extra rooms. The upgraded cozy bedding and spotlessly clean bathrooms made everyone happy and comfortable. A small problem with one of the rooms was solved promptly and pleasantly. We recommend this hidden gem to everyone!

This is not a four star hotel. It is four stars because of what I needed it for. This hotel reminds me of the ones me and my family would stop at along the highway when I was a kid taking a trip. It is an older hotel and is no frills, but if you are looking for a close... More
