We moved to the Red Roof after a few nights in downtown DC and we were so happy we did! Great service from Debie and others, close to Metro stop with parking. The price was much more amenable than the prices downtown and the commute was easy!

My family and I stayed here this past weekend and we had a decent time. The room was decorated nicely, but we soon found a lot of quirks, especially in the bathroom. However, the one positive thing is Miss Mills who got us through our check in process in a heartbeat. She also gave us extra towels and shampoos. AND...

We moved back to the DC area a few days ago. The house we rented was supposed to be unlocked but upon arrival, found it was locked up tight. It was close to 11 pm and after driving 12+ hours with two cats, we wanted to sleep. I tried to find a hotel that would accept pets near the house....

Situated in the not-tourist-area of Alexandria this is a value for budget conscious traveller who really will not do anything in the room but shower and sleep. You cannot walk into Old Town from here and be aware of very low budget motels on either side of this property if that matters to you. I was approached by a homeless...

Your comments are very important to us and right on point. We are a basic no frills, pet friendly and smoke free property. Being exterior does present challenges. Where we stand out from most of our competitors is our ability to make all of our guest feel special. Thank you, Shirley Jordan General Manager

Sarah was very very informative & Knowledgeable of the area and gave excellent advice. Polite and Professional as well. I wished all Hotels had someone like her in them, traveling is tiring at times and people like Sarah who show they really do "care" about you makes all the difference.

I experienced the roof under bad circumstances; canceled connecting flight, hot night, grumpy me. The room hadn't been cleaned, which was kind of creepy (really, former guest, think about your snack food choices), but Isaac at the desk did everything he could to fix the situation. The next morning, Sarah was pleasant and helpful. This is a nice enough place,...
