“Good Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Staff and facility met my expectations. Hotel was clean and neat. Unable to use WiFi in room but internet was available in lobby. Drink vending machine on 1st floor did not work. Hotel was centrally located to the areas we wished to visit and provided excellent directions.

Conveniently located near Fort Belvoir, Mt Vernon, and other Alexandria attractions, this hotel is very well managed. The staff is friendly, the room is comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. The only negative is the lack of a portico at the entrance. It was raining hard when we departed so we got pretty wet. The price is reasonable for the greater Washington DC area, so I would highly recommend this facility for the cost sensitive traveler.

excellent place to stay. just 14 miles from dc and a direct shot to downtown. lots of places to eat where you can find parking unlike dc. the breakfast was not very good but it was free. we did not have breakfast except for the first day. the room was very reasonable for the area.

Upon check out, I needed to dispute a charge. The front desk clerk needed help as he already processed the charge. The manager refused to come out to the front, yelled from the back that it was too late, and inferred it was my fault, without even finding out the situation. It was one of the most unproffesional travel experiences I have encountered. The issue was never rectified.

For a ridiculous price, I found myself in a room that at first I thought just smelled like spray covering up cigarette smoke. At first I thought that the smell was actually a tad better than that found throughout the hallways, lobby, elevators, and stairwells. After a while longer, I decided that perhaps a small animal crawled into the air conditioning and died? Maybe someone used this carpet as a toilet and they're trying to cover it up?? Perhaps all of the plumbing needs to be replaced??? Do the employees not smell this hotel?! I think not. When I checked in, the manager was outside smoking a cigarette with the maintenance man. They probably have no idea.

Also, there is one free power outlet if you plan on turning on the lights. So, yeah, I'm having to alternate everything I need to charge.

I am a business traveler, and plan on coming to this area often, at times with a crew renting at least three rooms at a time for a week or more. We will not be booking this dirty, smelly, "budget" (ha!) hotel. You've got to be kidding me with this one.

We stayed one night during a visit to the area. Upon check in the staff was very helpful in getting us the name of amenities in the area to make our stay easier. The room was comfortable but dated. It was like walking back into the 80's. The bed was comfortable the shower was huge. We had a kitchenette, so all in all the hotel experience was ok.. The location makes this hotel ideal, however there are several new chains moving into the area so this may become a problem in the future for this hotel. Check out was mildly painful, the man sitting at the desk took a minute to acknowledge me. He was unaware or acted as such that he did not know how to check out using B/W gift cards. thank goodness a woman came from the back and took over the process. SEVERAL minutes later off we went to complete another adventure
