Comfortable bed, lots of TV channels. However, the hall was dark, the bathroom had balls of blonde hair on the shower wall and floor (we are dark haired) and the water pressure of the shower was super low because the shower knob didn't work correctly. The hotel states that there is wifi but the connection was sketchy at best even...

Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed our comfortable beds, TV programming, affordable rates, and convenient location. We're very disappointed, however, to hear of the problems with your bathroom. Although we do our best to maintain the cleanest possible rooms that are in good functioning order, if there is ever a...

Bare bones and basic, but done well. Well-equipped room, good lighting. Comfortable bed, but only foam pillows. Excellent water pressure, good hot shower. Bathroom sink area a little cramped. The mini-fridge is a nice touch. Ice only available on main floor. Driveway is in need of repaving, coupled with blah exterior and signage, gives an initial bad impression, but once...

The hotel location : 1) Awesome location!!! With 2 metro stations within walking distance - Crystal City is the nearest and Pentagon city is a good stroll away, with a fashion mall adjacent to the station and across the street. ~ Going to the National Mall, White house area by metro is so convenient, economical, and healthy ;-) The hotel...

Friendly staff, very inexpensive, free parking, decent breakfast, very good WiFi, great location near subway. This was our second stay - both more than meet our expectations. Easy to get to by car, as well.

Very friendly and great customer service. Thanks for a free shuttle from and to the airport. Rates are very affordable. Thanks for a delicious breakfast. Excellent location of the hotel; close to the shopping and underground transportation.

We stayed 8 nights during the cherry blossom season. We had never been to D.C. before. The staff was very nice and the location was great, close to the metro. We are never going to win the "Amazing Race" but when we needed help everyone was very nice. The wi-fi is spotty, but that's the only bad thing I can...

Not much to say that hasn't already been said! It was an enjoyable two night stay at the Americana Hotel. I would stay here again with no second thoughts and will recommend it to friends who are visiting DC. Comfortable beds, extremely close to metro (and a mall), friendly staff. Yes, it's dated looking ... our room had one neon...

Gene Putman It is close to the Center of Washington DC and can get to all of the attractions. I have found a new hotel when I gone. Shuttle van for the area is very good. Parking lot need to be resurfaced, but very easy to get to and out of.

This hotel was a great price for DC and in a close location to 2 Metro's. Very convenient and cheap. It is an older hotel, but at the price I paid I would expect that. The hotel was very clean and it had free breakfast - bagels + donuts + coffee.

I stayed here when I was a kid with my family for the 4th of July so it was a blast to visit the hotel again. The Americana remains clean, safe and inexpensive. The Metro is just a couple of blocks away making is extremely simple to visit the National Mall and all the museums as well as catch a...
