Good overall rating. We had a problem with the lack of support of our bed in our room. This was immediately and properly handled by the staff. We will be returning next week. Descent choices at the complimentary breakfast.

Older hotel was very clean, staff all helpful and friendly, location is about a mile from everything on King Street, but free shuttle to metro and King as well as Ronald Reagan airport, which took 7 minutes. Free continental breakfast which has something for everyone. Lots of free parking. Rooms a bit dated but comfy beds. 0verall a great stay...

The great- Parking was easy and even some spaces under the building. The breakfast attendant made sure everything was clean and filled. There were all kinds of fresh fruit to go along with all the usual motel breakfast buffets, even real silverware and dishes if one wanted! The ok- We didn't realize there was no elevator, so our original second...

We stayed two nights during our annual mother daughter weekend. The hotel was convenient to sites of Alexandria, D.C. And National Harbor. We were able to visit an array of different areas and enjoy our time together.

We needed somewhere to stay in Washington with parking which is difficult to find without paying a fortune to park so we opted for this hotel just outside at Alexandria. Location worked well, the hotel shuttle will drop you at the local metro station, if they remember to tell the driver you want to use the shuttle, and it is...

Front desk staff was nice, room was clean, though it did not have a microwave snack center had a microwave that could be used 24/7. Breakfast was great. Fresh food, cereals, eggs, yogurt and juices. Small quaint hotel, not the fanciest but the name describes it. For the price couldn't have asked for better.

I have 3 criteria I use to judge lodging. Bed, shower, and coffee. Best Western Old Colony Inn was excellent on all three! We both slept GREAT!

I stayed here for one night before a flight. If you have a morning flight, you'll need to find your own transportation as their shuttle service starts at 7 am and ends at 9 pm. The service was great, but the rooms could use some updates. The beds were comfortable, but it would have been nice if the room was...
