Just one mile from the Metro for easy transportation, and accessible from both I-95 and I-495, Red Roof Washington DC Alexandria is has newly renovated rooms, is 100 percent Smoke-Free and 2 miles south of Old Downtown Alexandria and only 5 miles from National Harbor and Crystal City. The Pentagon, Arlington Cemetery, downtown Washington DC, Ft. Belvior, and Mt. Vernon are all within 10 miles of this hotel. Located just minutes from restaurants and shopping. The friendly staff and the convenience of being just 8 miles from downtown Washington DC make this location a great place to stay.

Good Home Base

This hotel is close to the major points of Alexandria and the routes into DC without having to pay for it. When visiting an area like that you don't expect to spend much time in your room so all you really need is a comfortable bed. This hotel delivered that and the rooms on the back side of the hotel were pretty quiet.

Good for the money charged.

I would value this hotel as deserving for a charge in the upper seventies and no more. The impression I had with the staff was out of this world. My highest regards to them.

very nice hotel

The room and staff here were excellent. Very clean, and a friendly staff. The hotel is located near several bus lines, but about 3/4 of a mile from the metro train.

nice for pets

It was a nice location but our dog found a lot of nasty things under the bed. If this incident didn't happen I would recommend it so if you don't go with a pet just don't look under the bed.

Most Horrible Experience Ever

This is a MOTEL!!! They misinformed on their hotel description and advertised several amenities that they did not have! They did not even have the most basic neccessities such as a fridge in the room. Beds were as hard as bricks and did not even have extra towels and pillows available. VERY HORRIBLE!!!

Get what you pay for

Hotel was reasonable for the price. I liked the new renovations but still a budget stay. Hotel had a different smell in the room, one I have never smelled before. Linens were clean, comforter had a few holes in them and the shower curtain was a dingy. The staff was very pleasant despite an irrate, drunk construction worker who was upset about his company card being declined who was actually grilling in the back of his truck. Overall it was a pleasant stay for the price.

You get what you pay for

The hotel is right off Hwy 1 so if your room is in the front, there *might* be noise issues - we were in the back so it wasn't an issue. The room was a bit cramped and the bathroom could've used some cleaning. Towels were not replaced one day though we had requested full service - had to go down to the reception to get new towels. Basic toiletries and basic amenities - if you are looking for a clean, cheap room close to Regan national to crash in for the night, this fits the bill. We'll look for a better hotel closer to D.C. attractions next time.

visiting in area

the hotel itself was clean; however, it faces Rt. 1, a major highway. If you have a room facing the highway, it is extemely noisy morning and nite.
