Can always get better!

Two complaints. One is that the garbage bins in the room did not have garbage bags, and other is that the staff was in a grumpy mood while we were there. Other than that, we had a great experience, and we would stay here again.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Hops Restaurant and Brewery a few miles down the road has great food and great beer. It's right next to Target, Best Buy etc. Same goes for Bilbo Baggins Restaurant about 9 blocks from the hotel. Rustico is a good place too, but a little pricy!

DC Trip

It's a rather unique hotel. The snack room was a bonus and treat. The water and juices were especially helpful in the DC heat. The shuttle service to and from the subway station was very reliable and timely. It was nice to just park the car. Of the three hotels we stayed at on our trip, the Old Colony's was by far, the best breakfast. The staff did a fine job of keeping up with the food and drink supply. The front desk staff was very warm and helpful. As previous reviewers have noted, the hallway and stair carpets need cleaning ( or replacing if they can't be cleaned).

Nice area to stay.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. I really liked the fully stocked snack area. The only thing I found wrong was that the hot tub was not in service. The breakfast looked great, but I can not eat hotel food due to gluten issues.

Business Trip

Our group found your accommodations to be very nice. The staff was excellent!! Breakfast had a nice variety. We used a room for a business meeting and it worked very well for us. It would be nice if there was wifi in the whole building and you didn't have to go downstairs to use it.

Sight seeing and Business Trip

Hubby and I were in VA and DC for 6 days and used the Best Western Old Colony Inn as our base camp. 2 miles from the airport, close to Old Town Alexandria, close to all major hwys/fwys for day trips to Civil War sites ( including Gettysburg), DC. , and any other kind of shopping you might be interested in. Complimentary FULL breakfast in the morning made it a quick way to start the day, and the complimentary 24 hour snack lounge ( everything you could possibly need was stocked in the fridge and cupboards) was always welcomed at the end of a full day. Plenty of FREE parking ( we rented a car) or use of a complimentary hotel shuttle anywhere within 3 miles was another great ammenity. While the rooms are a liitle worn looking, they were still large, and CLEAN, and the TV had tons of cable stations and premium channels at no extra cost. WE would definately stay there again if we were to visit that area in the future.
