The hotel was cheap and clean but the staff were extremely rude when needing anything other than check in and check out. Don't bother using coupons either. I watched several people get frustrated with staff and leave. Also recommend kabob palace. It's great and packed with people who know how good it is.

As others have stated - this is an older hotel in Arlington and definitely not the most expensive. If you're looking for luxury - look elsewhere. But if you want a comfortable room and local convenience, then this family run hotel is a great location. Walking distance to the Metro and Crystal City Underground and great restaurants nearby. Hotel has...

Ok firstly i am English and we are experts at moaning especially about hotels etc. So with that in mind onto my review of the Americana Hotel in Arlington. Let me start by saying this is not five star luxury and if you want that then go to the Hilton or Marriott or others where you will part with a...

I think they call this a hotel now as it sounds better but bottom line is it's a Motel.....and they should be happy with that. The old Motel sign still stands outside. Rooms appear to be getting updated on a floor by floor basis as the first stay we had was on the 4th floor and all furniture was new....

This is an old hotel with no ambiance. Rooms are small & crowded. Heating/airconditioning unit works well but was noisy. Bathroom needed new fixtures. If you can, spend more for a newer hotel, if not, the hotel is really a nicely run, respectable, clean, well-staffed, friendly & safe hotel.

Shuttle picked us up from airport. We were a day late due to DC airport being closed from weather. The hotel did not charge us that night. No hotel does that especially after 2pm when we found out voted not make it in. Super close to metro station. Can get to crystal city metro by cutting through the shops and...

It's a bit dated, but clean. We enjoyed our stay. Great location, great price. Breakfast was very basic but what they had was good - donuts, bagels, cereal, coffee, fruit. Free parking was nice as well - good if you want to go around the DC area to places not accessible by public transportation.

It looks a little rough from the outside, but inside it was just as I expected after reading other reviews here. The hotel contacted us prior to our arrival to get an ETA. We arrived 1/2 hour earlier and were still able to get a room with an early check-in. The staff does a good job of keeping the rooms...

My sister and I stayed at the Americana Hotel for three nights and we have nothing but good things to say about our stay. Our room was very clean and updated. The bed was super comfortable, flat screen TV, refrigerator in the room. The bathroom was very cute with vintage yellow tile and the shower had plenty of hot water...

Had a 4 day trip to Washington, to view the sites. We decided to stay at the Americana because of it's relatively low cost and accessibility to Washington, along with it's rating on TripAdvisor. Check-in was easy and quick. Our room had an excellent bed, but was old and worn. The bath room had numerous cracked tiles and some staining...
