Great location but needs work

The limited staff is nice and helpful. It has wonderful views of historic Alexandria churches and close to the Riverfront Center. My room was cleaned once in the four days I was there. The shower was dirty and cracked and the toilet bowl was water sediment stained. An up date is past due.

Not for a long stay

Location great for us. It's an older hotel in need of some TLC,but the staff was pleasant, the room clean and it certainly was quiet. Would stay overnight for convenience, but not for longer.

Worst Ever!

Hotel could not find our reservation. It took a very long time to check in because of this. I even supplied the confirmation# & the front desk staff was rude. Hotel was old, but that would've been OK if it was clean, but it wasn't. The bathroom in our woom was dirty, shower & floor looked like it hadn't even been cleaned in a very long time. We saw bugs... IT WAS AWFUL..

not so good

Staff appeared to be lazy...I was given a room that turned out to be someone else's room!!! Dirty and unkempt halls. Pool was closed which was quite a disappointment for my kids (there was no mention on the website or in the booking process.)

Weekend visiting the inlaws!!

We weren't too impressed with the hotel. There was a wedding party staying on the same floor as us and noise level was out of control. We had to ask them to be quiet a few times. Probably won't stay there again!

You get what you pay for

For the price I paid, I expected a lot worse than what I got. The lobby and other public areas initially had me concerned about the cleanliness of my room. However, I was surprised to see that my room was VERY clean and in order. The bed was very comfortable, full cable television. The room also came with a mini fridge and microwave, which I did not use, nor look inside to inspect. The staff was friendly and my stay was quite nice.

The good, bad and the ugly

The hotel was old, dirty and smelled. I will not stay there again. They did not have my reservation. There was no ice. They did not have vending machines. There was only one staff member who was nice but she had only been working there a few months and couldn't tell me anything.
