The Inn located close to Washington DC, if no traffic, 15-20 mins can reach the National Mall. There are some restaurants, CVS, fast food near the Inn. Room is very clean, newly renovated, breakfast is fair, couple choices, but the tablecloth is not clean enough. The Inn is full during the 3 nights we visited, room service can be improved,... More

We loved it the price was fair for amenities, very friendly and helpful staff, and not bad location. It wasn't anything over the top but wasn't a dirt hole either. We will definitely be going here again when we come back to visit Arlington area and we recommend this place if your looking for a non modern place.

This is an "old school" motel that has been very well preserved. The location is excellent for the Metro DC area and is surrounded by the necessary service providers; a dry cleaners and 24/7 laundromat are next door; across Route 50 are two drug stores, an IHOP and several other restaurants. The accommodations are clean, the housekeepers are helpful and... More

I have stayed at this location 4 times over the past 3 year for an annual event. This time, I asked for an iron board and was told that they did not have one (the one in my room was broken).

We stayed for one night and had a very quiet and restful experience. The hotel is obviously older, but a good value. The double room was spacious and although the bathroom was small, we had all the conveniences necessary for our stay. The front desk staff was cheerful and a response for an item we lacked was delivered within 3... More

This 1959 vintage hotel is a little shabby, but offers free shuttle service to the Metro to D.C., free breakfast buffet, and a pool. Bedding was quality and staff helpful. However, adjacent restaurant is not open for dinner, and pool is not open in the morning.

This place was misrepresented by Trivago as being a Comfort Inn with points when it is totally independent. It is about 8 miles from DC and not far from Arlington. My room was clean enough with a flat screen TV and vanities both in and outside the bathroom. There is no independent AC control and there was stale smoke was... More
