Baxter, Minnesota

Our family of 4 stayed here for 7 nights. It was about 1/2 the price of other hotels, had a typical continental breakfast (donuts, oatmeal, cereal, bagels, muffins, juice and coffee), and had clean, comfortable rooms. It is a short walk to the underground Crystal City metro. Our shuttle driver was pleasant and helpful. Great option for saving a ton...

We stayed at Americana based on TripAdvisor reviews and it suited our needs just fine. The hotel is one short block from a Metro station and the Crystal City shops, and one Metro station from the airport. The hotel shuttle was fast, friendly, and convenient when we didn't have Metro SmarTrip cards yet. The hotel is dated, but very clean...

Great value. Clean rooms and nice staff. Yes pink bathroom tile, I didn't come to see the tile. Close to metro stop, less than half of most of the other motels. Nice firm mattress!

I stayed here 6 days. It is not a luxury resort but it meet all my needs. The building is older but my room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was larger than more modern hotels. They have a shuttle that will pick up and drop off at the airport but will also give you rides within...

My boyfriend and I were taking our first trip together to Washington DC for half of our spring break in March. We chose this hotel based on the reviews of tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. If you're looking for a five star furnished room, this probably isn't the place. The room we stayed in (the deluxe, queen), was really...
