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.

J so sad about it

you get what you pay for

While the room was fairly cheap, the place left a lot to be desired. The non-smoking room, smell like smoking rooms, thus exciting my allergies. The beds seem smaller than usual, and although the room was fairly clean, the furniture and other amenities were outdated. Very disappointed!!

Lax

We were not in the room much. It was fine for the reasons we needed the room. The best of the ammnities was the pool and the guess laundry.

Economy special Room 117

Great spot for your economy, clean but could be better, bath room crammed into a hallway space (poor layout). You will figure that out when you sit on the bowl, one leg against the tub/shower, and the two toilet paper rolls sticking in your ribs on the other side. Only real complaint as stated, bathroom for children or small adults (110 lbs.), not averaged sized Americans

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Walmart, Target, short drive south on Rt1. Fairly hilly with heavy day traffic which would complicate carry packages. Look up Metro for local trips, Metro parking area not to far away for day trips into DC, cheaper or easier then constant trips back to car to feed meters.

Run Down in need of upgrade

First night heater in room ran all night suffocated. Second night heater fan locked up and screaming. Had to move to new room which only one light bulb worked. I switched bulbs from first room to be able to see in second room. Breakfast consist of waffle iron and some frozen fake eggs. Went to McDonalds after first morning. Staff was very considerate and understanding, but not my favorite experience at Days Inn.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If riding Metro you can walk behind the Hotel to the Huntington Station. Half Mile through park and remember to bring flashlight.
