It was a really quick trip to downtown DC by car and a short trip by tram. The hotel had a complimentary van to take us to the station and that was really convenient.
The shuttle took us where we wanted to go, then came to get us when we called. We didn't have to move our car.
Could easily hear other guests at night, example, flushing toilets and closing doors.
Door wasn't a tight fit. You heard all the noise out in the hall.
Breakfast was great! My kids loved the make your own waffle bar. The shuttle service was nice and convenient too.
Disappointed that room didn't have a fridge nor microwave. Furnishings were shabby. The bedskirt had holes in it. They really need to freshen up the place.
bed (mattress on the milk crates, always sinking, bed pillows), bathroom is very rough, hallway stinks like vomit, quality of breakfast is not great
Free shuttle within Alexandria
The hotel was located for easy access to and from the Interstates.
The room was not particularly clean. It needs to be updated. No elevators nor easy access to the building. I would not go back there again.
There was a problem with 3rd party booking, but it was resolved by a sympathetic and kind personnel. This good experience trumps any minor inconvenience.
We like the location it's close to the airport
The breakfast isn't very varied and the room has a funny smell
This hotel came with a lot of "extras". It had free parking, free shuttle service within 3 miles, and free breakfast which included cereal, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, bagels, danish pastries, and a warm entree which varied day to day, usually some type of egg and breakfast meat. They also served apple juice, orange juice and coffee. Also included was a DVD player in each room and they would let you borrow from their collection. The beds were very comfortable and the staff was nice.
Although there was no refrigerator in the room, they provided ice in bags and a ice bucket in the room.
Value for money. Had a small gym and walking distance to office. Shuttle around town and to airport.
Dated facilities and damaged furniture. One of front desk attendants brash although most employees were polite and helpful.
The beds were comfortable. The room was air conditioned. The rooms seemed clean. The breakfast was decent. The location was quiet. There was a Giant grocery store around the corner. The staff was friendly. Overall, a good experience and would make a great place to save some money on a hotel if you don't mind taking the free shuttle, car, or taxi to the metro.
The tv remote was difficult to use because it was overused. The fitness center was small and hot. My credit card was charged for more than what my booking was for on the day of check-in and I was told this was a hold on the card to ensure there's enough money to pay for the room (note: the correct charge was finalized later on my billing statement). There is a free shuttle service to many nearby spots, but I'm a walker and like to just go at my leisure so the location was not the best for easy walking to all the restaurants, shops, metro, waterfront, etc. There's not many visual attractions in the immediate vicinity. There's no elevator to the second floor, so those with disabilities may have trouble, for example, my mother had trouble with the stairs while coming to visit the hotel before dinner.
Took three rooms to settle in. First one, broken door handle. Second, broken AC
Older motel but very clean and comfortable. Located in a quiet neighborhood close to restaurants and metro. Free parking, breakfast, and shuttle . Pleasant staff. Enjoyed our stay very much.!!
Both nights a man was sitting outside on the rockers smoking a cigar that took him over 3 hours to enjoy. We know because our room was right above. Wish it was a non smoking hotel even on the porch.
