“Great Experience”
Reviewed August 3, 2004

I couldn't think of anything negative about our stay here. We stayed July 17-21 and then again on July 26th because we enjoyed our previous stay.

Great low rates and ideal location - the Eisenhower Metro Station was just a short walk across the parking lot and takes you anyplace you need to go quickly and easily. There's a large AMC Movie Theater just across the street, along with a Ruby Tuesday casual dining restaurant and a little ice cream shop called "Cold Stone" over there.

We packed light, so we were able to take advantage of the washer/dryers they have available on the 10th floor - and they even give you little boxes of Tide detergent for free! It was 1.25 each in quarters to wash and to dry.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. A/C worked just fine for a very hot and muggy July week. Staff was courteous. Free shuttle van to/from airport was convenient and available anytime we needed it, and drivers were friendly.

We would definitely stay here if we're ever in the DC/Old Town Alexandria area again.

Am Priority Club member and could not believe the deal for this hotel. Went with my children 10 & 11. All meals for kids were free all week. My breakfasts were free all week, I got a free drink each night for free and $2.00 off for each dinner all week. This amounted to a huge savings. Thank god for indoor pool (heated) which after a day in the muggy DC weather was much better than going outside to cool off. Got a microwave and fridge for the room which for 7 nights was wonderful. The staff was very helpful and the Metro was just across the parking lot. I highly recommend this location especially with kids. Great prices, good not fancy food, indoor pool, and a truly wonderful staff. No request was too small and they treated by kids like gold.

Remember it is not 4 star food or rooms but my family was treated like stars and in the final analysis that is what makes a vacation memorable.

This hotel has only one asset: it's location. It is right off the beltway which makes it easy to get on to the interstate, and is right next to the Eisenhower metro station. It is also easily accessible by car to old town Alexandria and Washington, D.C. The hotel however is another story. The front desk staff was inefficient, aloof and rude. The gift shop was closed, as was the restaurant. The room was tiny and the air conditioning did not work. The bathtub was stained and the bathroom was tiny.
