“Good option for Old Town Alexandria”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Good location, rate and easy for transportation. Older property but well kept. Friendly staff and breakfast was satisfactory. We were able to walk to Old Town and not require parking or transportation. Free parking is a big plus in this area.

Room was clean, staff was friendly. Had some issues with the Internet service going in and out, and the shuttle was not available at some times when we really could have used it. Make sure to clarify the shuttle schedule and availability beforehand if you intend to use the Metro on your trip.

Dear jrc_lockport,
Thank you so much for taking the time to send in a review regarding your stay with us at Best Western Old Colony Inn. I do understand your frustration with the Internet and I apologize that we had an unexpected outage during your stay. I am so glad we got that fixed. As far as the shuttle goes I don't know what happened that they would not be available unless the call was after their normal hours of 7 am to 9 pm. If that wasn't he case I do apologize.
Thank you again for the information and we hope to see you again.

Stayed here on the first night of our vacation. Arrived late. As other reviewers have mentioned, it was not so easy to find in the dark. Was glad that I had studied the map and the "street view" ahead of time. Our room was the furthest from the lobby, and was not a requested "King", but we were too tired to tote all our luggage back to the lobby to change. The room, while dated, was clean. The staff was friendly. We've stayed in many other Best Westerns, most of which have exceeded our expectations. This one did not.

The Best Western Old Colony Inn in Alexandria is a great place to stay. While it is outside of DC, the Metro takes you right into the city. The hotel has a shuttle that takes you to and from the Metro but the walk is short if you want to walk it.

We were extremely satisfied with all aspects of our stay. "Old Town" location is wonderful and flexibility of shuttle to be able to utilize local sites was outstanding. The entire staff was Professional and Responsive throughout the stay. The complimentary breakfasts were varied on a daily basis while still maintaining a standard bill of fare for those who appreciated the standard approach. We will definitely try to obtain accommodations at this site when we return to the area.

My family found this hotel to be wonderful for the cost. I was worried that for the price I was going to be disappointed, but I was wrong. The staff were super friendly. The breakfast was a nice benefit. The shuttle to and from the shuttle was wonderful. Just a great experience!

As most have posted, the hotel was a little outdated - no ice machine and elevator to the upper floor and a little hard to get to with no turns along the GW Parkway. However, the staff treated us well. Even though our room did not have a refridgerator (my wife needed it to keep her insulin cold) - they provided us with one within an hour or two after checking in. They also provide shuttle service to and from the Metro station as well as to the airport.

Once you figure out by car, how to get around the area, ii is easy to access Old Alexandria as well as getting to the freeways to various points of interests. As with most suburban areas, the streets are very busy during commute hours...
