The rooms here have been refurbished with the faux wood floor and large flat screened tv. Bathroom sink updated. Room was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. I machines didn't all function, but were apparently turned off for the winter. Decent location...not far from Olde Town.

My boyfriend and I were looking for an affordable hotel around the DC area. We chose the Red Roof Inn because of the great reviews that we read online. Luckily, the hotel lived up to their reviews. We made reservations for the Superior King Room. It was perfect. Clean room, newly renovated. It had a safe, microwave and fridge. It was located within minutes from a Metro Station and had plenty of restaurants and stores within quick driving distance. I felt very safe in the hotel. The parking lot was well lit and the front desk staff was very friendly. I recommend this Red Roof Inn to anyone who is looking for an affordable and nice hotel just outside of the DC area.

Stopped in DC area and found RR on the web with a good site and made reservation. Arrived and was warmly welcomed, fast check in , and friendly people all around. Some great recommendations for places to eat and go see. Great bike path only 10 min away with large parking area and it leads all the way to Alexandria waterfront and DC if you want.....Great ride. Overall clean , neat , and inexpensive place to stay....will come back if in DC/ Alexandria area anytime. Thanks again to the staff for a great stay for a five day stay.

This location appears to have been just recently renovated. The rooms are new and well kept. In addition, the rooms have a fridge and microwave which is an amazing amenity to have for the price. In addition, there is a washer and dryer unit, $1.50 and $2.00 respectively at the end of the building. Didn't use them but that is a rare, and useful amenity.

The location is good as a base for sightseeing in D.C. assuming you have a car. The highway it is on let's you bypass the beltway and major highways into downtown D.C. so the trip into the city is much nicer with less traffic.

While there is no breakfast, there is coffee and hot water for tea in the lobby. The hotel is around several restaurants (within driving distance). We didn't take the Metro so I can't comment on how close it was.

Room Tip: Rooms on the backside will be much quieter as they don't face the highway.

Quite a pleasant experience for the money. I like that the rooms were remodeled and modern, the location was pretty close to the metro station and to restaurants and shopping. The only down was a cigarette smell in the room out first night, but after we turned the fan on it went away. I would definitely stay there again!

My daughter and I just returned from our Spring Break trip to DC. We chose this hotel based on reviews and it's proximity to the Metro. Travelling without my husband, we wanted somewhere we would feel safe walking as well. The first morning it was raining, so we took a cab to the Metro...only $6.00 on way, very reasonable. Sarah at the front desk was great and called the cab for us. The second day was nicer weather so we walked in the morning, and the trip only took about 15 minutes.
One drawback to not having a car, there are not any restaurants VERY close. The closest we found was a Five Guys about a half mile up the road.
The room was very clean and well kept. Our room was on the side facing the road, but the traffic was not loud enough to bother us. My daughter said the bed was too comfortable to get out!
All in all, it was a great room at a very reasonable rate. The staff was friendly and very helpful. On our last day, the shuttle was not to pick us up until two hours after checkout. Sarah held our luggage and even let us hang out in the lobby while we waited because it was super cold outside.
While we did not bring our pets this trip, it is great that they are also pet friendly, which we will also keep in mind when traveling with our fur family.
