This motel has great customer service and great prices. We stayed there for three nights and was very happy. The beds were comfortable, pillows were soft and heat and a/c worked wonderful. The bathroom was spotless. The shower had adequate hot water and all necessary toiletries were available. Free WIFI and great channel variety made our stay wonderful. So wonderful...

Room 20. Clean. The Cons? Older furnishings a panel in one corner needs paint/refurbishment. You need to ask for a hairdryer or iron. Breakfast is limited to bagels & cream cheese, donuts, OJ, and coffee. Traffic can be noisy. There. If that turns you off, don't go. Plusses: Clean & neat. Friendly staff. Excellent price for area. Easy drive into...

I have passed by here before since the Great American Steak and Buffet restaurant is one of the their neighbors. After my default hotel had issues with their WiFi and price points I decided to look for something else for this particular weekend. This hotel has been around for sixty years or so within that time, it's been the run...

We were in Alexandria to visit George Washington's Mount Vernon estate. Chose this motel due to the reviews. We are very glad we did. Great value for the dollar. Older property but very clean. Friendly desk staff. Plenty of hot water. Flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge.

We stayed here for the night to visit DC. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Room was very clean. They also had a shuttle to the train so we wouldn't have to drive. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a well maintained survivor from the days when the Richmond Highway was the main route south from DC. It offers old-school touches like windshield-washing equipment in the parking lot, artificial flowers in the bathroom, and real metal keys. The staff is friendly and helpful; the rooms are clean and comfortable; it's easily accessed from the Interstate: and the...

The reviews of this property from previous guests sold me on our recent booking. I wondered how could a motel rated " Excellent " with Tripadvisor be so reasonable. Our room was very clean, spacious, updated bath, had both a microwave and large fridge, free Wifi and parking. The owner drove us to the nearby Metro station and we were...

I needed a convenient, pleasant, clean place to stay in Alexandria. I found it here. Nothing fancy but clean, quiet, convenient and I would go back in a New York minute. Why pay the high rates of the big chains when all you are looking for is a clean place to sleep and shower. Park your car right outside your...

I found this on Trip advisor after seaching for months for anything convenient that didn't cost a fortune. Located on a busy highway, but traffic noise wasn't a problem. Every morning when we needed to get to the Metro, someone would drive us up and drop us off. They told us how to catch the bus back, if needed. A...

After looking at prices in downtown Washington we had decided to skip it from our itinerary until someone suggested staying somewhere on a metro route and getting the train in. We chose this one at just under $100 a night and were very pleased. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable and the trip into Washington...
