The hotel was neat,clean,the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help you.the location is perfect to enjoy night life in old town or take the metro to D.C. To see the attractions and monuments. The hotels free shuttle will pick you up and drop you off. Great find on a budget.

Safe, clean, and convenient hotel is a good alternative if you don't need to be in DC. The complimentary breakfast is about what you would expect from a "free" breakfast - never tried the eggs, I couldn't get past their appearance. The facility is older but well maintained and the staff was friendly. A short walk to a walking path along the Potomac.

It provides good breadfast. It's near the Reagon Airport, and the shuttle bus takes us right there on time. It's near DC and enjoys good view and it's a tranquil place. I think it's a good stay when I was in DC.

I have stayed at this Alexandria Best Western on numerous occasions while doing business in the DC area. The hotel is close to shopping, dining and metro. The reception and cleaning staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is quiet; parking is ample, easily accessible and free. I recommend!

Clean, very comfortable, quiet, full breakfast. Bed was terrific!! Room was clean, spacious. Had a DVD player, WiFi, desk, coffee in the room. Coputer area, gift shop in the lobby. Freindly clerks, easy access off the main road. Close to DC and Regan International Airport, as well as all the "touristy" spots!
