The room is modest but clean. It smelled like smoke despite the fact that the room is non-smoking. Attentive staff but this motel provides just the bare basics. A good place to stay for its cheap price and excellent location. Some noise from busy location and nearby airport. Easy access to metro into DC via a 10-15 minute walk. Lovely... More

Maybe it is because this site is scheduled for redevelopment but it was the poorest hotel by far in our three week trip. The bedding was clean and good quality but there were ants in the room (208), and everything outside looked like it could do with a coat of paint (rust on the railings outside) and quite a bit...

Location is great for DCA (Reagan airport) just five or 10 minutes away by car. I was able to call ahead and confirm our after midnight arrival, so that was great. Could not get the coffee maker to work. Front desk never answered when I tried to call. The tub was slippery after just one person used it, so the... More

Towne Motel Alexandria is less than a 10 minute drive from the Jefferson Memorial downtown. It's also within walking distance of downtown Alexandria where you can find beautiful old brick buildings, exciting restaurants, and walk along the water front. The only negative about the location is that it's super close to the airport, so outside of the building you can... More

This motel is one of the cheapest in the area and conveniently located. It is only a ten minute walk to the metro. The room seemed clean, but the outside of the motel definitely needed some work. The AC was very loud, but kept the room warm. My biggest complaint is that there was anywhere from an eight of an... More

Stayed here because of proximity to what I wanted to do in Alexandria. Walking distance to metro was about 10 minutes without snow. I won't stay again. Bed covers didn't stay put while sleeping. Meaning the bed sheet became untucked and sleeping on the bed was uncomfortable. It felt like I was sleeping on a bed sheet over plastic. Bed... More

This is a descent motel for a good price, especially considering the area. It's right in the Old Town area and within walking distance to a Metro station. It has no bells or whistles, and no breakfast included, but if you're looking for an economical place to stay in a convenient location, this is a good option. Room was clean... More

OK, it's the cheapest place to stay near/in Old Town Alexandria. Our room was clean, but it was small, only had one chair for the three of us, and smelled not so good. The Towne Motel is a little tired. The good part is that it is 5 minutes from King Street and 15 minutes from Arlington National Cemetery. We... More

My friends and I were looking for an affordable place to stay in Alexandria that was still in walking distance of King Street and found Towne Motel Alexandria. We paid $80 for 2 nights. Spent most of our day and nights in D.C but while we were in the room itself it was fine. No doubt that it is an... More

My husband and I were on our way home to NJ from visiting family in NC when we decided to stay over night and didn't even book through Travelocity. The man was very helpful when we told him it was our anniversary, he gave us a couple of nice places to go for dinner.
