The location and price(check out their packages) of this hotel are fantastic compared to others in the area. The main pluses for this motel are the price (low daily price and free parking) and the location. You only have to walk over to the Marriott in the next block and through their tunnel to get to the Metrorail station. (The...

My family and I had a great stay at this hotel. It is walking distance to the metro lines, shopping and food. It has everything one would expect at a surprisingly low price for the area. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

It's an older hotel but extremely clean and well taken care of and the staff was really nice and helpful. No complaints here besides the elevator which is incredibly slow, you're probably better off with the stairs. All in all a very pleasant stay and I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to DC.

Great rates, clean rooms. I would put it on part with a Holiday Inn Express. Small refrigerator in room. Everything you expect at a surprisingly low price for the area. Convenient to metro, and Crystal City Shops. Short metro ride DC attractions. Nice contental breakfast. I'd stay here again.

Let the people who want to spend big bucks for a name brand hotel do their thing. I'm on a budget and don't mind a little "retro" as long as it's CLEAN. And this place was CLEAN. Yes, there were a couple of VERY minor issues that honestly I didn't even bring to management's attention - that's how minor they...

This was our first trip the DC area and we really enjoyed our 4 night stay. There is so much to see in the area it would take months to try to see everything.We stayed at the Americana hotel because some friends had stayed a few years ago and told us if we went to DC we should stay there...

This hotel is older but has been looked after. The rooms are in the process of being updated although the room we stayed in, which hadn't been decorated, was perfectly fine. It wasn't the largest room we had on our trip but was adequate for our needs. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful, even offering to drive us to the...

Our goal was to have a clean, comfortable room that was close to the metro and had free parking. The Americana Hotel fit all of our criteria. The staff was very friendly and the rooms clean, although a bit outdated. The bed was great. They supply a refrigerator in each room and even gave us a 7th night free for...

This was a rather retro hotel complete with neon signs and ageing furnishings in the room. The bathroom and its shower and sink was really small, though the other rooms our family was in had slightly bigger bathrooms. The bed was decent and everything was clean, but the TV reception wasn't of good quality in my room though it was...
