The hotel is located in an easy to find spot, is exceptionally clean well cared for. The room was spotless, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There is a Bar-B-Q area next to the main building which is clean and very useful as well as a putting green for those so inclined.

Very decent suits, spacious and with a nice kitchen. Bathroom is average. In-room wifi is complementary. Friendly staff makes the stay more pleasant. There's a common bbq, and a putting range just next to the hotel.

The staff was friendly and the room was clean but very noisy. This is probably a good place for working crew type people on short term assignments. We were next to the door that led to an outside barbecue area (which is a nice idea since the rooms have a small kitchen) but the night we stayed there several of...

Very clean, modern, and they literally provide everything you may think of. I just moved here and I packed some extra stuff for the kitchen, but did not need it. :) Full fridge. Plenty of closet and drawer space. They provide housekeeping once a week. Staff is friendly and courteous.

Driving through and vehicle partner was driving broke down. Ended up spending two nights there. Erica was the one that checked us in and she was absolutely awesome. The hotel is beautiful and all the staff was out of this world. Definitely will stay there again and definitely will recommend this hotel.

I enjoyed the week I stayed here and the room was updated and nice. There was fresh coffee in the lobby and the front desk gentleman in the morning was very nice. Bed ' s are comfortable and the AC worked well. They also give you a large bar of soap. It was good quality compared to what some chains...

Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was in good condition. Check-in/check-out process was quick and easy. With three kids, this was one of only a few hotels that allowed my family of five to stay together in ONE room. Cons: No rollaway cot for our toddler, but they did have a crib. No continental breakfast like many competitive hotels...

My 12 year old daughter and I were exhausted when we arrived in Alexandria. It was late and we were having trouble finding a room.
