We had the pleasure of staying at Econo Lodge Metro for a week, using it as a base to explore DC. The hotel is somewhat old, but very well kept and clean - especially for a budget hotel! A continental breakfast is included in the room price. There is a selection of bread, cereals, juice and coffe and different cakes.... More

This is our second stay at this hotel - a few years ago just my husband and I stayed there and all was just fine. This time we had our young grandchild with us. Everything was clean and housekeeping was exceptionally helpful. However, this time the room was crowded with the three of us. There was no where to walk... More

The room was very clean, possibly the cleanest hotel room I've stayed in. But the staff was very unfriendly and sometimes rude. The bed was ok but the pillows were awful. The hotel is within walking distance of the metro but there isn't much around the hotel. I would not stay here again.

Stayed in the Hotel from May 30 to June 3, 2016. The people were friendly & helpful. This is a budget hotel. The room was clean. Tariff includes breakfast & WiFi. Breakfast was good but the choices were limited. However, internet was not available most of the time. Need to improve on this front. There are three floors: ground level,... More

Thank you for your review and I apologize that we did not meet your expectations for the services and products you had hoped for. We are at an extremely busy and ideal location.

This hotel is a great budget hotel. Breakfast in the morning is provided by the hotel - for the best selection try to get there towards the start of it because they don't restock all of the things they provide. The room was clean and the air conditioning worked very well (an important aspect when DC gets hot in the... More

It was close to the metro, which made travel to and from Washington, DC a breeze. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Our room was very clean and perfect for what you would want in a hotel. We plan to come back to Arlington very soon and we will be staying in this hotel every time we do!

Econo lodge is like the name - econo. Everything is outdated and obsolete. The bathroom is very small and smells like bleach. The sink is outside the bathroom, practically part of the room😩. The beds are too small for a family with teenagers so maybe you can take this in consideration when you book your room. We were 4 so... More
