We recently went to Washington DC to attend son graduation from Georgetown University. Because of the limited availability of hotel rooms around this time and the great experience we have had with other Choice Privilege Hotels (namely, Comfort Inn, Sleep Inn, etc.) we decided to give this Econ Lodge a try. We booked this way ahead of the graduation date...

We recently went to Washington DC for funeral services at Arlington Cemetery for my father. Not knowing much about the DC area, we checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor. After scoping out a few local hotels/motels, we decided to go with the Econo Lodge. Both price and amenities were a major factor in our decision. Though the motel is a...

Friendly, helpful staff. Decent Breakfast. Clean! safe! Great location in great neighborhood with choices of dining within 2 blocks. If you're visiting DC to see the tourist sites this is a great jumping off point. Paved Walking/biking trail to METRO Station just 5 - 7 minute walk. I will stay here again.

Very good location (couple of minutes walk to the metro which takes you to the national within roughly 15 minutes), staff is friendly and attentive, especially during breakfast. speaking of which, breakfast is solid and slightly above average for this kind of motel. however, not everything is great: although our room was clean, it showed its age: the carpet is...

We stayed at this motel for our first time visit to Washington DC area and it was a great place to stay and perfect for our D.C. Tour.

I have just returned from a week long stay in D.C, and my mother & I stayed at this Econo Lodge. The hotel is dated but clean. They say they serve a "Full Hot Breakfast". While they have the equipment set out for this, they tend to not keep the servers full. The one thing you will always find is...

If you want to tour DC and on a budget, this is the one for you. 5 minutes walk to the metro station that is served by both OR and SV lines. Safe and quiet neighborhood with a couple decent restaurants nearby. Although not great, breakfast is covered so you can hop on the metro right after. No hidden charges....

Thank you for a wonderful and fantastic review. I agree it`s a great location and plus you only pay for the room and rest of all amenities are included, like 24 Starbucks coffee, tea chocolate, free continental break fast, free internet, parking. local phone calls and news paper. It`s certainly a best deal in town. Thank you again, and hope...

This hotel was one of the best we stayed in on a recent trip to the USA (other hotels stayed in included a Clarion and Best Western). Small hotel, quiet rooms, short drive to metro station.

The room was clean. The breakfast was nice...pancakes, cereal, eggs, bagels, sausage patties, fruit, etc. It's in a good location. You can walk to the Metro The only thing is the room had an odor. Other than that the staff was very accommodating. We would stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for three days. Too find the right words to describe my dissatisfaction with conditions. The service was OK, but premises were disappointing.
