Had to be one of the better places to stay for the money, very clean and service oriented. They had shuttle service to the airport and the old town area. But the motel is an easy walk of approx. 6 blocks from the old town area. when we checked in the front desk guy "Roland" asked a few questions about...

I stayed 4 nights for a conference. My room was clean. It had 2 full sized beds and a refrigerator. There is a Giant grocery store 2 blocks away, so it was nice to have the refrigerator. There are several restaurants within walking distance. There is a free shuttle to King Street and the airport. The King Street shuttle runs...

I agree with other reviewers, this is a good location for getting from Reagan Airport and exploring old town Alexandria. It's 10 minutes by their free shuttle from the a/p and 8 short block walk to Old Town. The staff seemed bored and tired and were not very familiar with the area, particularly restaurants. I was given a tourist map...

Stayed at the hotel for a week long conference that was on site. When I first arrived I found a spa sample packet on my pillow (pillow spray, foot cream, and a relaxation facial cream). It's a small touch, but very welcoming after traveling all day. My room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. There is an air conditioner...

This is the second time in the last two years that I have stayed in this hotel. The hotel is clean and well presented. The rooms were clean and spacious. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

The biggest problem with this hotel seems to be the management: Pros: Location-price-shuttle service from Reagan Airport. Nice rooms. Cons: Management is cheap and it shows: The fire alarm rang 0406; fortunately a false alarm. But no one knew it was a false alarm, so we evacuated. Upon reaching the outside it was mass confusion; people milling around, wandering in-out...

We stayed here for three nights as part of an Archers/ Cosmos touring holiday. It is in the historic area of Alexandria and the surroundings are quiet and felt safe.

I stayed here for the last three days for a workshop at their sister property, the Holiday Inn. The hotel is perfectly okay, but there are some service issues. First, the good. The rooms are nice.

Bought via priceline and was advertised as a 3 1/2 star hotel. That is a gross overstatement. First room had a dead cockroach.

We stayed just one night. The staff was very helpful - let us check out the room before we made the reservation and found and held a forgotten bag for us.
