Competent and guest oriented management. Very clean room and a great continental breakfast. Centrally located for my needs and very reasonable rates. Good eating establishments in close proximity as well as public transportation.

We just stayed at the Highlander Motel in Arlington, November 13-15. We wanted a clean, safe, comfortable room. Sure, we would love to stay in D.C. but that was cost prohibitive. And really, since we were just using the room to sleep, shower and get dressed, did it really matter where it was as long as it was easily accessible...

We are frugal senior citizens who love to travel - we are frugal by choice and appreciate good value. We stayed a week at the Highlander Motel and we concur with ALL the positive reviews - it is clean, comfortable beds, in a safe neighborhood, close to bus and Metro stops, substantial continental breakfast, and super nice staff! We rode...

Hotel is in a nice part of town. Restaurants next door and across the street. Metro about a 5 minute walk. Nothing fancy here but not expected as the rates are much lower than most Arlington hotels. No hair dryer in room, etc. little things like that are not there but those mean nothing to me. It's a comfortable bed...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
