Decent value for discounted price; good location

Bottom line: this hotel provided a decent, average value (by D.C. area standards) for its discounted price but would be questionable at a higher rate. Location is fairly convenient to both Washington National/Reagan airport, Old Town Alexandria (about 1.5 mi.), and downtown D.C., at a significantly lower cost than those areas. Like many facilities in these mid-range chains, this motel is showing its age. The reception area is small and budget-chain bland. (Nothing like the pictures!) But there was new carpeting throughout, and the room was very clean and neat. (Exception: doesn’t anyone ever clean the edges of the carpet next to the wall, where the vacuum cleaner’s carpet sweeper doesn’t reach?) On the other hand, the room was surprisingly plain and, like most hotels in this price range, dimly lit with very cheap lamps. (BTW, the lamps had all been switched off, so the wall switch just inside the door didn’t turn any of them on.) Decent flat-screen TV with a separate DVD player. Adequate breakfast.

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.

Good place to stay

The rooms were clean, the hotel is fairly close to King Street, and the (free!) shuttle more than makes up for a slightly out-of-the-way location. The 24 hour snack bar is nice, too. I would stay there again, the staff was very pleasant and we were pleased.

There is a 24 hour snack bar available to guests, gratis. It's a nice touch, you can get a cold soda at midnight.

Short DC Trip

Went to DC. Nothing was missing the room could've been a little more up to date. A great thing about this hotel was the fact that you are provided with a great hot breakfast and a 24 hour snack bar loaded with pop, water, juice, coffee,milk, cereal bars, noodles, chips, candy, yogurt, etc. This is a full mini kitchen up on the 2nd floor with a microwave and it is super nice! We stayed in Virginia Beach and paid $222 a night and all we received from them was a breakfast so this hotel in Alexandria is definitely a place to stay if you are wanting to see DC. P.S. they also shuttle you to the metro or anywhere within 3 miles of your hotel for free!
