“Be leary of this hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

First impression was not good. The parking lot made me very uneasy because it didnt feel safe. Had we seen it in person and not had reservations, there is no way we would have stayed there. Hotel only had a few guests and that made us wonder if there was something wrong with this hotel and we were not aware. Walk to the metro was ok during the day but I would not walk it at night or alone. No elevator which made getting our luggage to the 2nd floor very difficult.

The motel is located in Old Town Alexandria and all parking lots are of the main Washington street. The occupanccy for the month of June was 73% and for first 15 days of July is 68%. The metro station is only 7 blocks. The demographic of the area has since changed and there has never been an incident where our guest was involoved. However there is a Dash bus service which runs from a block away ( Pendelton Street ) on regular intervals and is a 2 minutes ride to metro station.

This may be the cheapest place in town, but I would definitely suggest staying away from this one. I'm not that picky (I just wanted a reasonably clean room for a few nights). The room was pretty disgusting and I had to leave in the middle of the night because I had a fairly severe allergic reaction to the room (I'm allergic to several types of mold). I ended up at the Red Roof Inn, which is about 15-20 dollars more, but the rooms have been recently repainted and are carpet free.

Sorry to hear about your views. We have only 5 rooms out of 40 rooms, which are smoking. The rooms and the hallway are regularly painted. The rooms are regularly checked and treated for any mold etc. The hotel is also inspected by the alexandria health department on regular basis before renewing the license every year. We would have appreciated if you informed front desk of the issue which could have been resolved, to make your stay comfortable.

These pictures aren't accurate. This was the nastiest hotel I have ever stayed in, & it came recommended by a phone travel agent. We thought there were few hotels in the area, but we learned later, that wasn't the case, or we wouldn't have stayed at this roach motel. The carpet looked like it was the same since the 60s. Toilet seat was very old too. There was no elevator to the 2nd floor, so we had to take the stuffy, hot, smelly stairs & hallway. Man at the desk was nice, but he was behind bullet proof glass. Yes, it is only 7 blocks from the metro, but you have to walk through questionable areas. We paid $109, & it wasn't worth 10 bucks. It looked like a 60s hotel that hasn't been updated for 50 years. We returned to our room to find someone came in the door & turned our TV off even though we put the privacy sign on the door.

We are concerned to learn that you were not satisfied with our services and appologize. We try our best to make the stay of our customers as comfortable as possible and that is the reason that you will find our customers remarks are mostly possitive. Recently we have changed the mattresses, place new LCD tvs in the rooms with new bed skirts and blankets. We are only 2 story building and thus have no esclaters. We would have also appreciated if the front desk manager was informed about your observations so that he could have addressed them immediately.
