AmericInn Lodge & Suites Alexandria

Reviewed April 8, 2014

There was confusion on the policy of food/drink in pool area. Other AmericInn's we've stayed at have allowed food/drink in pool area. We just assumed this was the case in Alexandria, so we brought canned beverages and ordered pizza. As we finished eating the front desk asked us to remove all food and all drink from the area, that neither were allowed. She was courteous, but we were surprised. We reviewed the signs posted which indicated that food was not allowed, but drink was (just no glass)
Other guests the entire weekend had beverages and food in the pool area.
If this is a new policy, it should be clearly posted that no food or drink are allowed. If it is a policy I also think it should be reviewed, as the purpose of our stay was for adults to socialize by the pool with beverages while the kids swim. if drink is no longer allowed we will ask when making reservations next time and choose a hotel where beverages at least are allowed in pool area. I would just be sure to check that before making reservations.

We were allowed to use the breakfast area for our family meals which we very much appreciated, and appreciated the willingness of the front desk clerk to clean up after us (vacuuming). We also were allowed to use the area again all evening for games until past midnight, which was very much appreciated (first time in our family's annual trip that we weren't called on for a noise complaint in our room!)

Thank-You for bringing this to our attention. Our pool policy states No Food allowed in the pool are. Drinks are allowed with no glass. I have further trained my staff on this policy so they are aware. I am happy to hear we were able to accomadate your family to the use of our breakfast room for meals and game for family time. Once again Thank-You for these comments. We look forward to your future stays with us!

This was the first time staying at an AmericInn. This hotel is a little older but still a good choice. Woman at front desk was very friendly and our room was clean and quiet. The breakfast sitting area was small but the main kitchen area is located through a door near the lobby so it didn't feel crowded. Safe area and close to the interstate..We would stay again.

very old facility needs updating, dark old carpet with lots of wear tracts. Bathroom is very old style, could be used for wild west décor. Facility did not feel secure as other facilities. Not many choices in the area.

My husband and I stayed at the AmericInn this past weekend and had a great day. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was great and the rooms were very clean and neat. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is going to Alexandria. Nicole at the front desk was very helpful and always had a smile on her face. Thanks for the great time away!

As always, a wonderful experience at the Alexandria AmericInn. Friendly and knowledgable staff, clean and comfortable room, and a quiet, great night's sleep. Don't know why you would stay anywhere else when visiting Alexandria.
