Red Roof Inn

Hi Guys

We are a Scottish couple in our 30s planning a two week East Coast road trip. We have booked 3 nights at the Red Roof Inn, Alexandria. Looking at the reviews, we are pretty pleased with our choice (for the money we paid) but I just want to check if it would be safe to walk from Huntington metro station back to our hotel at night. If not, are there cabs around the station we could take instead?

Thanks for your help,

That RR Inn is at the intersection of a major traffic artery just beyond the Capital Beltway interstate. It is well lit and you should be fine staying there. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there myself. However, I would not walk the mile between Huntington Metro and the hotel, myself. Given that you are here for 3 days....I would recommend you make certain to check out Old Town at night in our historic district and enjoy the pub scene. I'd take a cab home from there directly and save the metro fare cash!

There are cab stands at the metro, but I cannot weigh in on how reliable they are late at night.
