Good basic room and value

Room: Good basic and spacious room with refrigerator and microwave (a plus!). I was only staying a night, but it's nice to know you can shack up for a while to extend your stay if you want to go downtown into D.C. The commute to DC does take a little while, though, but the parking deck to the train was about ten minutes drive. Generally, the location was just perfect for the race I was running; it was more affordable than some of the downtown options, and close to some cheap shopping if I forgot something. I was pleased by the assortment of breakfast selections; oatmeal and waffle options always make me happy. Overall, a basic room with good amenities, but not in an area where there seems to be too much to do, and the place seems a little worn with age. Get your average nights' rest.

Trip to DC

They had new mattresses on the bed which was really nice. But it's a mile to the Metro and their shuttle now runs at very inconvenient times so you have to pay for a taxi or walk.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

If you walk up to the upper level of the Huntington Metro and turn left on King's Street, you can turn left on Fairhaven and it will take you down to Richmond Highway. Then turn left and the hotel is a couple of blocks. About a mile walk.

Just so-so

You don't love it and you don't hate it. Breakfast only a "make do when you want to get going with your day". Leaves you looking forward to an early lunch. Staff only "there" ...no people skills. Housekeeping on the ball and got right to a problem with our room. Location on busy street but close to Mt. Vernon and a short drive to "Old Town". We figure we got just about what we paid for and if staying several nights that helps I guess.

Great value, location and comfort!

Only negative that disappointed me was the fact that pool did not open until 4:00. Sun went behind trees at 5:20. Otherwise we had a very nice 3 nite stay with no complaints......

Higher prices for average type rooms

The room had thin walls, which we had to call the desk to have the people next door quieted. Noise from cleaning carts heard overhead. Our toilet stopped up and overflowed, but the staff were quick to come and fix the issue. Had breakfast but no yogurts or fruits offered and it requested no take outs. Pool was clean and had lifeguard on duty because it goes to 8ft. deep. The prices were higher than other comparable rooms we stayed in probably because of the area itself.

Can be better

This hotel is in good location close to restaurants, city center, DC airport, tourist attractions, etc., has swimming pool and good for budget. We stayed here coz it's closer to DC. We are going to do a city tour before we leave Virginia. We could have stayed longer here if no malfunction shower, air-con, faucets and not too many noises. They fixed the air-con though the next day. No ventilation is another issue here. Room smelled smoke although we requested for non-smoking.

Great value

The Days Inn on the Richmond Hwy was clean, quiet, helpful staff and had a good breakfast. It is an easy 2 mile drive to all the activities of Old Town Alexandria. It is about half way between Mount Vernon and DC. A very good value.

Close to perfect

Room had faint smell of cigarette smoke. No extra power outlets, had to unplug hair blow drier to use for coffee pot (from other room) and computer charging. So really only downs were lingering smell and no power outlet at desk, everything else was perfect. Target & Walmart very close, also variety of many other stores &. restaurants.

Great Value

This hotel was exactly as advertised. It has basic amenities, its clean, and relatively quiet. It is exactly worth the price no more, no less. I got a single room with a king bed. The room was big- it also had a couch, coffee table, fridge, and microwave. It didn't smell like smoke or anything. I was barely was there and when i was it was fine. The subway ride was only 30 min to downtown D.C. and only two stops from old town Alexandria- King Street which was incredibly charming and full of bars and caf'e's. If you are in D.C. to get out and about this place will do it. If you are "high maintenance" person and will be spending lots of time at the Hotel and need lots of services look somewhere else. Lets face it you only get so much with a $70 hotel and this is good value in that regard.
