We stayed at this establishment, recently, while visiting family in Alexandria. My wife nearly fainted as we pulled into the parking lot. I believe that her exact words were..."Are you sure this isn't a by-the-hour motel?" At first glance, this motel leaves a lot to be desired, literally. It's a courtyard motel and gives the appearance of being run-down. Check-in was easy and the young man who waited on me was very pleasant. They still have the old-fashioned key on a huge key ring so that added to our trepidation. However, when we opened the door we were pleasantly surprised. Our room had been renovated, and was very clean and quite nice. It had a Keurig coffee pot in the room, as well as a fridge. Bathroom was clean and there was plenty of hot water. The air conditioner worked well; the bed was comfortable and we were pretty satisfied with the digs. Complaints... we had a large TV, though not a flat screen, and it was incredibly difficult to watch because the contrast/color settings were way off. I tried to adjust them with no success. We didn't complain to management, basically because we were in town for a whirlwind visit with family and really only used the room to sack out. The only other issue we had was noise. IT IS NOISY! I guess that I should be more specific. The motel itself wasn't noisy, it was the traffic. The motel is located on Washington Street, one of the main thoroughfares in Alexandria, and it is a busy street. Lots of sirens, lots of pedestrians... busy, busy, busy. We are from a reasonably small town so the presence of so many people, at all hours of the day and night, was uncomfortable, at first, but we quickly realized that this was just normal life in Alexandria. So, in conclusion, the Towne Motel is a cheap, yet pleasant to rest one's head. We would definitely stay again!
