We had a gala to attend in DC and booked this room for value - well, you get what you pay for. Rooms WERE clean but I was sceeverd out by the bathroom which was old and dingy and seemed to have a very dirty tub. Not sure what else to say expect don't stay here.

Was disapointed to check into a room that was a daylight basement looking onto an alley with a piece of metal that cars drove over all night. Room was not at all what you see in the advertisement. Very old construction. Ceiling above the tub was sagging and bubbling as though about to come down, evidence of poor and unfinished repair job. Shower head was really rusty. The corners in the bathroom where a vacuum couldn't reach were filthy and piled with dirt. Floor was not mopped, I cleaned it with a washcloth. Someone elses "short hair" in the tub. Remote didn't work. Light bulb burned out in lamp next to bed. No microwave or refrigerator as advertised. Linens were stained, shabby, and pillows old and stained and flat. I can overlook individual problems, but this was a bad combination of neglect. It is conveniently located to metro, 6 blk walk, Starbucks and great Burrito shop across the street, but I'll take my business elsewhere. I'm surprised that Travelodge endorses this room.

Every room is different, so know what you want. There are outside entrance ones and upstairs with a hall way. The upstairs are nicer but no pets allowed.

Each room is different size, we had a tiny hole in the wall on the first leve, felt like we were back in the 50s sleeping in a basement.
Then we transferred upstairs to a room that was more like a suite! With double sinks, enough space to do cartwheels.

The location is perfect, free parking, almost across the street from Starbucks. (My hubby was in heaven) Tho they have free breakfast, we prefer to avoid the carbs, junk, obese crowd.

Nice staff, planning on returning with my dogs, like I said, best buy around this tourist town.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs rooms, bigger, newer, nicer, but no pets allowed.

This is just an ordinary travelodge - clean, ok, nothing special and not esp cheap at $90 a night when we stayed - but its location makes it a winner. Alexandria is a brilliant place to stay to see Washington, and this hotel is 15 mins walk out of old town alexandria, which is a really lovely pretty old town, with great restaurants. This hotel is 15 mins walk from Braddock metro station which is 20 mins into central Washington or one stop from the Ronald Reagan National Airport. So you don't need to hire a car while you stay here - though there is free parking if you need it. You can also visit Washington's house at Mount Vernon without a car by taking the Metro - one stop to Huntington, where you get the 101 bus for $1.70 or something small like that and it drops you right at Mount Vernon.

It is on the corner of two main roads, so can be noisy. Ask for a quiet room - 129 is quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - the hotel is on the corner of two busy roads. Room129 is quiet. Or take earp...

I fully understand the saying, you get what you pay for. However, that does not excuse filthy living conditions. I specifically joined tripadivor to review my stay at this motel last week, March 18-20.

A discount motel does not need to be spacious, have extremely comfortable bedding, or major in room amenities, but it DOES NEED to have a moderate level of cleanliness. Specifically when it comes to linens and bedding.

I initially was willing to overlook the unvacuumed floor, but the deep sweat stains on the pillows, water marks littering the mattress, and holes in the linens pushed it too far.

It's not worth the discount--stay anywhere else no matter the prices.

The location is nice, close to the metro station and about half an hour away from DC (if you take the metro). The hotel is clean and quiet, and the staff is friendly. I had booked a room with one bed which was the cheapest, but once I got to the hotel I requested a room with two beds instead and they were able to change my reservation at no extra charge. The hotel is close to a starbucks, a trader joes (the room has a mini fridge and microwave), and walking distance to old town Alexandria. I would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed this motel by chance. I found staff very friendly and cooperative. Rooms are old but clean. High speed Internet is great.
Continental breakfast is fairly good and this facility is the key difference from other motels. Walkable metro station & restaurants. I will definitely recommend to others.
