The hotel had a great front desk staff. Very accommodating and helpful. They have a free shuttle to and from the Metro. The breakfast was predictable, but they had plenty of options. They allowed us to store our luggage while we went to lunch before we checked in. I'd stay here again

Thank you for deciding to stay at our hotel. I hope our complimentary breakfast buffet was predictably good. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our staff service and found our free shuttle to the metro station a valuable amenity. Thanks again, Scott McEwan General Manager

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

If you’re looking for hotels around DC at a reasonable price you should consider this. The hotel is easily accessible from I-95 and I-495 and provides a free shuttle to the Van Dorn Metro stop, one stop from Old Town and quick access to DC. Be advised the shuttle shuts down from 2:00 to 3:30pm but if you need Metro...

Thank you for staying with us and for your very kind recommendation of our hotel. We really don't recommend walking to the metro station, it is only about 3/4 mile, and down hill most of the was from the hotel to the station, but the traffic is bad and there is no crossing light to get from the hotel to...

This hotel is a typical Comfort Inn but is not close to restaurants or stores. If you don't have a car you have to rely on a taxi or Uber. Walking 1 mile you can find reasonable restaurant choices but no sidewalks and busy streets makes this option a no go. A shuttle will take you to the Metro Station...

Thank you for deciding to stay at our hotel, I am sorry that the lack of adjacent restaurants and shops was a problem for you. Almost all of our guests arrive by car and use our shuttle to the metro to avoid driving into DC. I agree it is best to have a car to get around near the hotel...

Spent 5 nights here. Room was clean and comfortable. They provide a shuttle to old Town and another to the metro 24/7. The breakfast was fine as well. The management tries very hard to please their guests.

Thank you so much for the kind review and it is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay but I don't think you stayed at our hotel because our shuttle to the metro does not run 24 hours a day, it runs from 7am to 2pm then again from 3:30pm to 10:30pm every day. Also, we do not run...

Good clean hotel for the price,the shuttle is very convenient for getting to the Metro. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You can get to D.C. In about 20 minutes so that was nice and there is a lot of food options in Alexandria.

Asked for a quiet room. Found out there aren't any. Truck and car noise all night long. Doors to breakfast are locked until 6am. No matter what. Coffee in lobby is cold and old. A/c unit in window is like an open window to 395 and South van dorn street. Not the friendliest place. No local TV channels. No news...

This Hotel wasn't set up for a big family, but they were super accommodating! The manager was super nice and helpful. We would go back to this hotel again, if we were to return to DC with all of our children! We were there during a tropical storm and we didn't hear a thing!

Stay at this hotel for our trip to Washington, DC. Great location as it is only minutes away from the metro via their shuttle service. Hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was polite and helpful. Breakfast was included and plenty of options to start the day off right.

Very clean hotel rooms! You wouldn't even know this is a pet friendly hotel unless you read the reviews. We came here on Spring break to see D.C.
