Stayed 3 nights while visiting family in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria. We had 4 rooms. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. There was a nice breakfast. Price was reasonable. Very convenient to Regan National Airport, Old Town, and Del Ray. We used the free shuttle to Old Town. We will be back.

Would recommend to friends to stay at this particular hotel due to it's location. It has a van that provides transportation to and from the Metro Subway or bus services. The van runs every 30 minutes and the phone number is provided with someone answering the phone the moment you return from your trip on the Metro. The rooms are...

Our stay at the Best Western Old Colony Inn was very good, the staff was very, very accommodating beyond our expectations. The shuttle service was helpful to us that we my use the Metro we parked the car for six days then only used the Metro to tour DC. We enjoyed our stay and would return in the future

We stayed here after a day at the Inner Harbor and before a flight to Florida. The room was great and the staff was very helpful. We used the shuttle to Reagan Airport and everything went smoothly, 10 minute trip going, and less that a 30 minute wait coming back. I booked through the Best Western website, and the front...

Close to the airport, Metro to DC and Old Town Alexandria/waterfront. Free shuttle to all these locations made getting around very easy, although Metro and Old Town are within walking distance if you are so inclined. Staff was very courteous.

This is really a motor inn that has ample parking and permits you to leave your car in the hotel and take the shuttle bus to the Braddock metro station. You can even walk from the station to the hotel if you want. If you need airport pickup they also do that, and they can take you to Old Alexandria...

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad to hear that you find our location to be useful. Our staff is always willing to provide assistance to our guests whenever necessary, even in providing assistance with luggage. All of our guest rooms are well above street level. So, there is no risk of flood in the building. I hope that you...

I have stayed here both times that I have visited DC. The prices are extremely cheap compared to the surrounding area. The continental breakfast has a massive selection and hot bar. The best feature by far is the complimentary shuttle that will take you and pick you up from the airport, metro station, and Old Town King Street area. We...

I agree with other people hotel is in a old hotel. They have done a great job keeping it clean and up to date. They had shuttle available to take us to Metro and even took us to Old Alexandria area for dinner. Great breakfast and a great experience for families doing DC on not wanting to pay to stay...

This hotel was extremely difficult to find. We had to ask people on the street, and they couldn't give directions. The person at the desk could not give as adequate directions. The GPS also could not locate the hotel properly either. Hotel desk people need to know where they are, so they can tell this to travelers.
