This is a great place to stay when visiting the DC area. The motel is older but it is family run and has a very nice staff. Because it is older the price is cheaper than all the hotels in the area. Location: this is just off of the 1 in Fairfax county, so it is several miles outside of...

Stayed two nights at this gem of a hotel. Very friendly front desk, provides shuttle to Metro, rooms are clean. Could use a little updating. Will certainly stay again if in the area. Easy to get to DC and the museums.

I booked this motel on a quick trip to D.C. I knew I wasn't going to spend much time in the room so all I cared for was cleanliness and comfortable beds. Well I was impressed. The bed was very firm yet comfy, the bathroom was impeccably clean and there was a mini-fridge and microwave in the room. The staff...

This is an excellent little place just outside of Washington DC's busy city area. A small little motel, you can tell it's been there a while. It's not all brand shiny and new, but it is a treasure I'm sure many do pass up for pricier places. DON'T. First off, it's very clean. It has some dents and dings here...

I wanted to camp near Washington, DC in order to visit the Smithsonian. The only campsite available cost $73 USD. (and I would need to take a bus and subway to the Smithsonian!) For $75 USD, I found this gem of a place, where they shuttle you to the subway, explain how to use the system, and provide a continental...

We were on our way from NJ to NC and Alexandria, VA was about the halfway point (I wanted to get past DC prior to stopping for the night). Knowing that we'd get there around 11 pm and would be leaving by 8 am, we basically needed a place to crash for the night. I went on booking.com and this...

Although this is an older motel ,it is conveniently located and has a staff who were all genuinely friendly and helpful. I will stay here again. It is less than a mile from Huntington Metro station and it is an easy drive into Old Town Alexandria.You need a car when staying here because of the location.

Stayed here for the inauguration as DC hotels would be too pricey. Good location if you're just going to crash there, which is all we did. Appreciated shuttle service to the Metro in the mornings. Evenings you either have to walk back, or catch a bus or taxi from the station. The walk was 10+ minutes. Stopped at little Japanese...

Old fashioned roadside motel with family ownership, Well run, clean. Free parking and easy access to Interstate. Nearest Metro station is a bit of a hike, but hotel will shuttle you to station. Given the exorbitant prices in virtually all Washington hotels, this is a bargain. No nearby restaurants, but plenty of local places that will deliver. I have stayed...

Old style motel but a great bargain. About 40 rooms and they're comfortable, many remodeled, with good wifi, comfortable beds, good TV and all for less than $100 most of the time. Easy access to Old Town, Washington DC, Fort Belvoir. Management and staff are friendly and helpful. My regular place to stay.
