My sister and I just spent four nights at the Highlander Motor Inn. It was just as described in the reviews I had read. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was located in a very convenient place. The people at the desk were very helpful. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a refrigerator...

A good place to stay if you want clean, comfort, cheap near the metro stop into Washington DC. Includes continental breakfast and GREAT motel hosts. Family owned and run. The pictures don't do this place justice. If you are there for the sights and don't intend to spend a lot of time in your hotel room, this is the place.

After reading some of the reviews on here I wasn't to excited to stay here but I figured for the price it was worth it upose to paying 300$ per night in DC. All I have to say is how wrong the reviews were that talked negative , i was given a perfect little room that slept both me and...

This is a small family run motel in Arlington, it is an older motel, but the rooms have been updated, they are spacious and the bathroom had a large walk in shower which was modern, the shower head had great pressure. The staff were friendly and helpful and they recommended places to eat. The motel is about a 8 minute...

We had relatives coming to town and once again turned to this fine neighborhood motel to provide extra rooms. The upgraded cozy bedding and spotlessly clean bathrooms made everyone happy and comfortable. A small problem with one of the rooms was solved promptly and pleasantly. We recommend this hidden gem to everyone!

This is not a four star hotel. It is four stars because of what I needed it for. This hotel reminds me of the ones me and my family would stop at along the highway when I was a kid taking a trip. It is an older hotel and is no frills, but if you are looking for a close...

Although the motel is an older property, it had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. There are lots of great places to eat within walking distance. Enjoy.

We chose the Highlander because of the proximity to Arlington National Cemetery. The motel was dated, but clean. Our room on the back side of the motel was comfortable and quiet. The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast was adequate. Overall a reasonable place to stay.

The rate was reasonable and the location was good because of the access to the Metro. Had to purchase super glue to repair nightstand drawer and sliding door towel bar for the shower. Also, had to reassemble the lamp assembly next to the desk. Other than that the room was OK. The neighborhood was fairly safe and quiet the week...

Just as the reviews said, the room was clean and the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The motel is 5 minutes walk from the metro station, very convenient to go to downtown where traffic is terrible and parking is expensive. Close to restaurants and shopping center. Very nice and safe neighborhood. Will definitely go back if...
