Recently in Washington, DC, with high prices in the area, I found this gem by accident with a price I could afford for a few days, a treasure in Arlington, VA. Only a short walk (5-10 min.) on a paved running/walking/bike type path with high fences/walls, very well lit especially when I came back at 10:30 at night. I felt...

Recently stayed at Econo Lodge Metro for a two-day DC visit. This was my second such stay here, having first done so seven years ago. The Metro stop is a quick seven or eight minute walk from the hotel, a hassle-free way to get dropped off in the heart of DC. The hotel rooms are clean and functional with a...

Overall, this is a great place to stay. My husband and I stayed in room 305 which had a king bed. The room was very clean and had enough space to accommodate two adults with luggage for a week of sight seeing. The bathroom counter space is minimal so, Ladies, be cautious when packing your morning accessories i.e. make up,...

First thing to remember is that this hotel is a bare-bones basic hotel. As long as you remember that fact, you will not be let down. Great friendly, helpful staff. Clean rooms. Decent continental breakfast. There are no coffee makers in the rooms, but there is a coffee area with 24 hour access around the corner from the lobby.
