“Conveniently located near metro and room is clean and nice.”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Conveniently located, about 10 mins walk to metro. 30 mins drive from Dulles International Airport (if no traffic jam). Nice and quiet neighborhood. Room is clean, big and nice. Double room is good for 4 adults. Breakfast is not bad. Coin laundry machine available. If you like Japanese food, 25 mins walk to 238 West Broad Street, you can have very good for value meal - Maneki Neko Japanese Resturant.

While my friend and I were desparately looking for a budget hotel within Washington DC, one of our friends suggested that we can look up hotels in Virginia. We came across this hotel on trip advisor and we were attracted by its amenities and price. This place is a 10 min walk to metro station (if you know the direction). As it was raining on the night of our arrival, it was really dark that we did not know which way to go. Fortunately, there is a bus station right next to the metro station and we asked for directions. With light baggages, we took the Q2 bus from metro station and got off at the third stop. Econo Lodge is right opposite! The staff greeted us when we walked in. Lobby was small but clean and bright. Check in was quick and we were given a room in the basement, right opposite to where the laundry room is. The room was clean and spacious and bright. As we reserved a double room, each bed is enough to occupy 2 persons. The shower was clean and dry. The whole hotel was a non-smoking facility, there was no stinky smell at all!! Though it is the basement floor, my friend and I were not awaken by any noise and we slept soundly for the night. Varieties of breakfast choices: muffins, danish pastry, fruits, cereals, yogurt, and toasts. As the breakfast was served at the small lobby, we brough our food to our comfy room while watching news on the flat screen tv. The staff was friendly and when we asked for direction to metro station, she made sure we knew our way. We later figured out that there was a back road along some houses that leads to the station but it would be dark and a bit dangerous to walk that road at night.

I've stayed here many times. Rates vary quite a lot, but still a good deal for the DC area. Easy access from Rte. 66 and less than 10 minute walk to Metro. Breakfast is free, but very minimal. No fitness room. Rooms are pleasant, nothing fancy but clean. Good free internet connection. Overall, a good deal for the DC/ Arlington area.

We stayed here for four nights to sightsee in Washington D.C. The room rate was economical and we took the Metro train everyday into Washington, it worked great. We found this hotel to be clean but dated. The plus side out weighs the negative. Plus side: Safe area, easy walk to Metro, free parking, free wifi, great room rate, good staff here, room was clean. Negative side, decor has much to be desired, no coffee maker in room, restaurants require a car to get there unless you are up to walking about a mile. We would stay here again.

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!
