This Econo Lodge is exactly what is you would expect. It's easy to find, a block from the highway. The rooms are clean and very adequate, having a small refrigerator in each one. The parking is free. The free breakfast is plentiful and they keep it well stocked and clean. They also do not clear up right away so if...

Room was quiet and comfortable, parking was included, and coffee was available across the hall. Only stayed one night so we didn't miss the lack of a pool. Would stay again ,there are so many great things to do in the Arlington area.

My mom found this hotel for us through choice hotels. We found it convenient to find from I-66, and were really glad to find it so close to a Metro station, a walk of about 2.5 blocks. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the neighborhood was nice. The continental breakfast was a bit slim, but otherwise, we...

I stayed three nights at Econo Lodge Metro.The property is a 5-8 minute walk from the East Falls Church Metro, so it's quite convenient to public transportation. The property is pretty basic. As long as you know that you are trading price point for amenities, it's pretty ok. The property has no elevator. If need accessibility or just hate carrying...

This was our 2015 Spring Break trip for my 15yo son and myself. Based on a limited budget, it was not the easiest task to find something that would not take all our funds before we even reached the city. I had read numerous reviews from several sites and the Econo Lodge seemed the perfect fit for our needs. It...

My family of four stayed here in March 2015 in a room with two double beds. We chose Econo Lodge Metro based on its cost and proximity to the Metro train station. The walk to the train station is a well-lit bike path or a residential neighborhood, your choice. The walk from our room to the train was 11 minutes....

If this hotel were a rental car, it would be a no-frills compact that does its job well. I came to DC for 4 days' of meetings in different parts of DC. I work for a charity and need to keep costs down while being sure that I can do good work during the day. This place was very good...

Now, this is tough review. I had read lots of reviews before choosing this hotel, and then had my own experience. And the best way to summarize it is to say: Great Budget Hotel, but acknowledge some facts and keep your expectations real! Then you will not get dissapointed.

Simple with its' style and furniture.Nothing fancy but still you get whatever you need. Staff was nice and helpful. Restaurants at outside helped a lot. You need to walk to metro stations for almost 15 mins. Economic for short business trips.
