I loved my stay at this hotel. It's location alone is enough for me to want to stay again. A short walk to the metro, wonderful HOT showers, there's a washer and dryer and a microwave on the lower level. We had a fridge in our room. The room was really clean. It's a small place so there the halls... More

The people working there were nice enough. I asked for a quiet room high up. Here's what I got: 1) Ground floor room - oh well. Facing the back of the establishment - so far so good. Little noise from other rooms - thanks. But - big but - outside mine, and many other guests' window was a some kind... More

Thank you for your review and I apologize for failing in meeting your expectations with reference to humming noise from next door building generator. Since it,s not part of our property, therefore it,s impossible for us to take any further preventive step. Our building is at the corner of very busy intersection, therefore it was built as sound proof by... More

The Econolodge Metro is a conveniently located base to travel around the DC area. Convenient to the metro and or Hwy 66 to start day trips all around the area with free parking. The room was large and clean with brand new carpet. Had laundry onsite which was great. Friendly and polite staff. The room had a microwave and small... More

You can't ask for a more budget friendly stay. A 10 minute walk via bike trail to the Falls Church Metro station (orange line). The room was clean and maintained. This is not a luxury place to stay, so if you're looking for a mint on your pillow, stay elsewhere. The continental breakfast was so-so, consisting of egg and sausage... More

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.

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.
