“Good price, Nice room, and Great location but, Bed Bugs.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I picked this place because it was close to a place that I had to attend for a meeting. The location was not bad close to water and sites and price was great. The rooms are nice and looked renovated but the TV was old and dull picture. I woke of in the AM with bites on my arms and legs and looked like bed bugs got me. So be careful.

This is an older place, but the management obviously goes to great length to keep it in top shape. My room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The only staff contact I had was with the live-in manager and he was extremely pleasant. The rates are far below the area average, but don't let this be a turn-off. Next time I'm in the DC area, Towne Motel will be my first choice.

Three of us stayed there in May 2013. We were looking for a reasonably priced placed to stay in a good location. The location was FANTASTIC!! The other hotels were triple the cost!! So that did play a role in why I picked a motel. The bathrooms were clean!! The bedding left a lot to be desired. If the bedding was newer, it would have looked nicer and it would be a no brainer!! As it was, it was okay! We walked to the subway station, easy walk to King Street, which we loved and easy to get into DC!! I probably would do it again but I might call and asked about the bedding!!! The rooms are small so getting three of us ready some sometimes a challenge but we were never in a hurry so that was okay!! Remember, you get what you pay for!! Take shampoo, conditioner, etc., they do have hair dryers and GREAT Keurig coffee maker!!!

Stayed here for a week as a base to travel into DC. Was only a 10min walk to Metro which suited us. Staff were very friendy and helpful. Rooms were a reasonable size and clean and comfortable. Exactly what we wanted from a hotel room in my proice range.

Don't let the outside fool you. This is a VERY nice motel. Hotel room was spotless and updated. Appeared to be granite shower. Very friendly staff. Quick 10 minute walk to the metro or 10 minute drive into DC. Kid safe area. Definitely recommend!

Stayed here overnight on strength of Trip Advisor reviews, and my need to make a quick exit to get to DCA early in the morning. (less than 10 easy minutes drive away, up the GW Parkway.)
The exterior looked a little shabby like other reviews said, but it looked like they were in the process of prepping for a re-paint. Inside the room: clean, tidy, furniture almost new,
My only quibble was that the TV remotes did not work properly, otherwise everything was in working order. Clean bathroom & nice towels. Never heard street noise or noise from other rooms. Good value place, and walking distance to Alexandria eating & drinking establishments, and down to parks by the river.

This motel is very modest looking, and could do with some curb appeal sprucing up. However, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The rooms and baths are very clean, and the location is excellent, and the price is right. A nice, cinvenient, and resonable place to stay.
