We stayed two nights during our annual mother daughter weekend. The hotel was convenient to sites of Alexandria, D.C. And National Harbor. We were able to visit an array of different areas and enjoy our time together.

We needed somewhere to stay in Washington with parking which is difficult to find without paying a fortune to park so we opted for this hotel just outside at Alexandria. Location worked well, the hotel shuttle will drop you at the local metro station, if they remember to tell the driver you want to use the shuttle, and it is...

Front desk staff was nice, room was clean, though it did not have a microwave snack center had a microwave that could be used 24/7. Breakfast was great. Fresh food, cereals, eggs, yogurt and juices. Small quaint hotel, not the fanciest but the name describes it. For the price couldn't have asked for better.

I stayed here for one night before a flight. If you have a morning flight, you'll need to find your own transportation as their shuttle service starts at 7 am and ends at 9 pm.

My go too spot. They always provide excellent service. They provide a shuttle for my interests in downtown; the driver was super and when I want to return back to the Inn, I just call for pickup...wonderful. And they have free parking. How good is that??? Bathroom needs some updating.

Stayed at this Best Western recently on a business trip. I was pleasantly surprised. For an older hotel, this was very clean and had an excellent staff to help. It was close to the King St. area, so dinner options were nearby. Plenty of parking on site.
