Stayed a total of 5 nights on a planned 4 night trip. Found the reviews of this hotel to be really good, so I had to try it on this trip. It turned out to be a very clean, hotel, with attentive staff and close to the metro. Breakfast has room for improvement.

Frequently go to DC on business. This is very convenient to the metro. By taking 1 extra stop on the metro, I pay about 50% less. This hotel is comparable in comfort to any of the hotels near Ballston and much, much cheaper.

But try somewhere else. Room was very clean. However, rooms provided were on the second floor. I am over 65 and grey haired. Desk clerk approved borderline rude, just didn't seem to care. Continental breakfast was about what you would expect. Breakfast room staff was unusually chatty.

short walk to east falls church metro. 7 to 8 minutes if you take the "trail". slightly longer if you walk the streets. clean and economical. i find it a good place if your moving around on the metro (and buses). the 3A bus is just outside the door.

We found this hotel while searching Tripadvisor for a place to stay in DC that wasn't too pricey. The hotel is located in Arlington on a nice neighborhood. This is a modest hotel. Is you are looking for luxury you won't find it here. But it is clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast is included (bagels, toast, cereal, yogurt, coffee, eggs,... More
