"To each his own" -- obviously, there are enough guests who have a good experience and rate this place highly. The good reviews were why I gave this place a try. I, on the other hand, found this place to be "average" at best... and I believe I am being very generous in that assessment. I have a feeling that...

Thank you for staying with us and writing a review about your experience. We're glad to hear you found our price appealing, our beds comfortable, our free shuttle service and free continental breakfast of value, and our location convenient.

If I hadn't read the reviews for this place we never would have stayed there. Fortunately I did and every single one said how great the place was and inexpensive, so we stayed there. We were still leery about the hotel when we saw it from the outside after having a terrible time finding how to get to it. But...

This hotel was cheaper than almost every hotel in a 10 mile radius, newly renovated, and small by hotel standards. But it was charming! It looks iffy from the outside, but rest assured it was just right for us. Parking area protected our car from the snowstorm, the free breakfast was quite nice, and the staff was beyond helpful. We...

The place is clean and nice. I found the shuttle to be helpful. There were several miscommunications on their part that effected me pretty dramatically. Asking LOTS of questions and rechecking reservation details seems to be in order with this hotel. The place is old and the tub did not plug for bath, nor Adrian well for showering. All in...

Yes, it's not super fancy. Yes, the amenities are basic. But for a budget hotel - especially mid-week, when other hotel prices are outrageous, it's absolutely perfect. Easy to get in and out of, just minutes at most from 395 and Rt. 1. The Crystal City shops & metro stop are a block away, it was snowing & cold while...

We stayed at the Americana during a DC snowstorm. Everything was welcoming and warm. The staff helped us with directions to the underground mall nearby and updated info on the airport . Our shuttle took us right to our flight the next morning even though snow was everywhere.

Although we started off a little iffy ... non-smoking hotel but got a room that reeked of cigarette smoke and it was 11:00 pm, this incredibly accommodating staff moved us into a different room for the night then set us up in another room the next day.
