“Nicely refurnished”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Stayed here for just one night and picked this hotel because of its location, cost and tripadvisor reviews. It did not disappoint. Nicely refurnished and very roomy. Fairly comfortable beds, and quiet room if you're on the rear side of the building. Air conditioner unit is a little loud, but that's kind of expected. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Bathroom could have been slightly cleaner, but it was nothing that would prevent me from staying here in the future.

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!
