Old fashioned roadside motel with family ownership, Well run, clean. Free parking and easy access to Interstate. Nearest Metro station is a bit of a hike, but hotel will shuttle you to station. Given the exorbitant prices in virtually all Washington hotels, this is a bargain. No nearby restaurants, but plenty of local places that will deliver. I have stayed...

Old style motel but a great bargain. About 40 rooms and they're comfortable, many remodeled, with good wifi, comfortable beds, good TV and all for less than $100 most of the time. Easy access to Old Town, Washington DC, Fort Belvoir. Management and staff are friendly and helpful. My regular place to stay.

While this is an older motel built in the 1960s, it is still functional and clean. The decor may be a bit dated, but this motel is what I remember from my childhood. It's small, single story, with sizable rooms and a real room key - no plastic card! And all of the employees, I mean ALL of them, speak...

This motel was basic and simple,good enough for our one night stay. Disappointing though that only one sachet of coffee was provided so we had to share that between two of us! Comfortable enough and fairly quiet considering a lot of traffic pass by. Friendly welcome.

Old style, roadside Motel with upgraded interior. Clean, good bed. Friendly. Near where I wanted to be and close to I495. Price was reasonable. Free parking. Clean towels, new carpet with some sticky stuff in one spot. Odor of sewage when checked in, but it went away. May have been local air as close to DC as it is. Would...

Upon driving up, your initial view of the Budget Host Travelers Motel might suggest something old-fashioned straight out of the 1950s. After all, this is not some multi-story luxury establishment equipped with pool, gym, public computer, and all the usual enhancements that go with expensive accommodations. On the other hand, what the Budget Host Travelers Motel does have includes a...

This older motel is very reasonably priced and clean. The motel is great for a family - well stocked with towels, shampoo etc. The staff are what make this place - they are absolutely wonderful - cheerful and ready to help in any way they possibly can - I think it is the best service I have ever had at...

This was a great find. The rooms were very clean, the bed was great and for the area very well priced. Right on Rt. 1, convenient to Old Town Alexandria and near enough to Reagan Airport and DC. Very nice people. Recommend to all.
