Overall, this is a great place to stay. My husband and I stayed in room 305 which had a king bed. The room was very clean and had enough space to accommodate two adults with luggage for a week of sight seeing. The bathroom counter space is minimal so, Ladies, be cautious when packing your morning accessories i.e. make up,...

First thing to remember is that this hotel is a bare-bones basic hotel. As long as you remember that fact, you will not be let down. Great friendly, helpful staff. Clean rooms. Decent continental breakfast. There are no coffee makers in the rooms, but there is a coffee area with 24 hour access around the corner from the lobby.

We have visited the Econo Lodge Metro numerous times. Yes, we like the terrific location (walking distance to the Metro). Yes, we like the very reasonable price (about the best in town). Yes, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. Yes, the breakfast bar is more than ample and is well maintained by staff. But, the main reason we keep coming...

Econo Lodge Metro was one of the few affordable Hotels in the Washington DC area. It is not fancy but is comfortable and spotless. The staff is very friendly. In reviews I saw complaints about the breakfast. It served our purposes fine and if not we would have gone out to eat. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to...

This Econo Lodge is exactly what is you would expect. It's easy to find, a block from the highway. The rooms are clean and very adequate, having a small refrigerator in each one. The parking is free. The free breakfast is plentiful and they keep it well stocked and clean. They also do not clear up right away so if...

Room was quiet and comfortable, parking was included, and coffee was available across the hall. Only stayed one night so we didn't miss the lack of a pool. Would stay again ,there are so many great things to do in the Arlington area.

My mom found this hotel for us through choice hotels. We found it convenient to find from I-66, and were really glad to find it so close to a Metro station, a walk of about 2.5 blocks. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the neighborhood was nice. The continental breakfast was a bit slim, but otherwise, we...
