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.

Stayed here overnight - doing the sights of Washington - when we arrived the lady at the desk was stretching her new puppy's paws in the car park, and as dog lovers we were immediately sucked in.

The room was wonderful. At most motels you tend to brace yourself for the night, here I found myself comfortable with the atmosphere. Even though the room was older, the place was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and they even served a nice little continental breakfast. If you don't want to pay the outrageous fees associated with...

I have passed by here before since the Great American Steak and Buffet restaurant is one of the their neighbors. After my default hotel had issues with their WiFi and price points I decided to look for something else for this particular weekend.

We were in Alexandria to visit George Washington's Mount Vernon estate. Chose this motel due to the reviews. We are very glad we did. Great value for the dollar. Older property but very clean. Friendly desk staff. Plenty of hot water. Flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge.

We stayed here for the night to visit DC. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Room was very clean. They also had a shuttle to the train so we wouldn't have to drive. Would definitely stay here again.
