“Yes will stay again”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

Nice hotel. Looks nice from outside as well as inside. Easy to find and few minutes drive from loads of eating places. Car park free and 5 mins to metro line into Washington. Metro only about $4 one way, cheaper than taking car and easier. Hotel happy for us to leave car and return evening even though did not stop second night. Reception small and helpful friendly staff with coffee. Room big with 2 beds, and small table and chair, very clean. Had flat screen TV. Free WIFI. Breakfast nice yoghurts, toast and muffins to eat in room. Very good value. Would stay again.

I stayed at the Econo Lodge for 1 week in October 2011.
The room was excellent; it was great to walk into a nice cool air-conditioned room, away from the heat and humidity outside. The double bed was very comfortable and sheets were changed EVERY day, as well as towels, and basic amenities were topped up daily.

All in all I was very happy with my stay here, I would definitely come again and recommend it to friends and family.

Considering the price of other DC area hotels...you cannot beat the Econo Lodge Metro. Basic accomodations, but clean, SUPER helpful and friendly staff and a 6-7 minute walk to the METRO. Stayed for one night with my wife and two boys, 7 and 5, and always felt safe. No complaints about the room except for maybe wishing there were more than 7 or 8 channels on the TV. We had a great night sleep and a decent breakfast in the morning. I would stay here again without thinking twice!

This hotel looked very neat and clean, just the place for the final night of my business trip. However, just as I was about to turn out the light and go to sleep, a bedbug crawled across my blanket! I called the front desk and the desk clerk quickly came to my room. I had squashed the bedbug in a Kleenex, and he asked if he could keep it to show the manager the next morning. He apologized and offered me a different room, but I knew I wouldn't be able to fall asleep in any room in the hotel. I checked out around midnight and drove straight home to Ohio on adrenalin and coffee.

Room Tip: Leave your luggage in the car and inspect the room for bedbugs before checking in.

This little Motel was clean, had a great breakfast and was located about 1/2 block to the Metro. We were in Washingotn in minutes! The rates were reasonable. The beds and pillows were heavenly!

We stayed here for two nights during a family vacation to Washington, D.C. because of the price and the close proximity to the Metro station. The front desk clerk was a little low-energy, but nice and checked us in quickly and earlier than their posted check-in time. We got a non-smoking double queen room, which included a mini fridge, a microwave and a flat screen TV. The lobby was pretty old and the room could use an upgrade, but the beds were clean and comfortable with fresh sheets. The bathroom sink and vanity were tiny, but we made do without any trouble. There are vending machines and a coin laundry downstairs for the guests. We slept well both nights without hearing any noise, despite the fact that this hotel is located on the corner of a busy road and the highway. The online rate was just over $100 per night and included a free breakfast, but we skipped it both days because we were anxious to get into the city. The Metro station is about a ten minute walk away from the hotel on a nice bike path. I would say the area is totally safe. We walked to and from the metro with our small children (8 and 5) and had no problems. We were out past 11pm both nights and the only thing we ran into on the walk home were some cute little wild cottontail bunnies. This is a good budget hotel for business travelers or families who don't want to pay exorbitant downtown hotel rates. Highly recommended!

A comfortable place for a 3 to 4 days short stay. Rooms are quite cosy. They offer reasonable breakfast and vending machines to find something for drink and munch around. The Staff is friendly and helpful. Nearby there is 7 11 Shop on gas station.

Overall you get the value of money being spend.
