“For a Week in D.C., location not ideal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Overall, this is a good hotel which is true to the Hampton brand. It is a solid 3 star/diamond hotel with good service, cleanliness and value. If you are staying because your visit takes you to Mr. Vernon or Fort Belvoir, this is the hotel I would recommend. If you're like us and you're looking for a hotel in the D.C. area for your family vacation, keep looking. We were looking for a hotel which was close to D.C., but far enough away that we could pick up good rates. I think we found the rate we were looking for at just over $100 per night, but there is a trade off. If you do not have a car you may find yourself taking the bus or a taxi everywhere. The shuttle that is supposed to be available to take you to or from the nearest metro is only available 8-4 Monday-Friday and sometimes it is not even available then. We had no car and so when we found the shuttle was not available to take us to the metro station, we had to catch the city bus. This hotel really needs to look at extending the availability of the shuttle to attract family vacationers to this location. Again, overall our experience was good, but for a family with kids from out of town looking to go back and forth to downtown D.C. each day they have left me regretting my decision not to stay closer to downtown.

I never expected this little Hampton Inn in the corner of Alexandria to be so nice. The amenities are nothing less than what I expect from a Hilton Brand hotel. I was impressed from the moment I walked in until I checked out.

The Hampton is a top notch hotel with a top notch staff. My room was extremely comfortable and made me fill at home away from home. The bed was very relaxing. I got the sleep I needed to function the next day. The morning robust coffee added to my alertness. My experience at the Hampton was great!!

This is a good hotel for budget. Probably $5 - $10 more expensive than Double-Tree or Holiday Inn, but free breakfast can trade off the difference. Our room had small refrigerator and microwave, and they were helpful to eat leftover from dinner at mid night. If they serve breakfast for gluten intolerant people, that would be perfect.

We spent three mid-week days here to see historic sites and museums and see friends. The rooms were bright and clean and the breakfasts were varied. If you are in a rush, you can make your breakfast to go or just grab a pre-made bag. The location is just outside of Mount Vernon and convenient to everything. Take the nearby Mount Vernon Memorial Highway into Alexandria or DC to avoid Route 1.

Clean, Great Value, all the amenities you would need for a weekend or extended weekend stay. Close to iNova Mt Vernon Hospital which was our first concern. Might have been a few other a little closer but in busier sections of RT 1. Everything you need is easily accessible off RT 1. Old Town Alexandria is about a 10 minute drive and a straight shot on RT1 to King St

The staff was absolutely wonderful, and the rooms were very nice! It was in a great location too! Breakfast was delicious and fresh, I couldn't have asked for a better hotel! It was very quiet, the fan on the ac was nice and loud (if you wanted it to be) And the internet had good speed.
