Recent guest reviews

Never again will I stay there,there was no lights to indicate what or where this was,no room number on the door, I'm glad I can count.the room was dirty carpets were gross,the bed was uncomfortable

To be fair, the problems with this stay had more to do with the area than the hotel itself. I had stayed at this hotel a year ago and had no problems at all. I don't mind if the furnishings are on the old side as long as the room is clean and things work. This stay started out fine but things went down rapidly as the evening progressed. Shortly after going to bed we heard a gunshot near by. Shortly after that we started hearing someone yelling outside and it escalated into a full blown shouting match. For a while it sounded like a drug deal gone bad and someone was about to be killed. We lay in bed terrified, waiting for bullets to come flying through the windows any minute. At some point we realized that it was a domestic throw down that went on for hours. Needless to say, we hardly got any sleep at all. I will never stay in that part of town again.

The hotel is being remodeled. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are a good size. There's no breakfast or coffee in the rooms, but can't beat the price. The staff was friendly. My mom and I stayed in the back, it was quiet and we felt safe. The hotel is located in a great location, it's close to restaurants and not far from the mall. Our stay was very pleasant!

The hotel is in a great location near restaurants and shopping. The room was comfortable and clean.

Clean and nice with good service . Have stayed here before and had a good experience.

The room was clean..the area is ok but the staff is not helpful

For the most part it was fine. The down are that what ever they use to clean causes the whole room to be greasey and where they say is ice and vending there is no vending and the ice machine was broken with no warning at ck in and the TV was and antique. The positive is the beds are clean and very comfortable And the hotel its self is close to everything

My room was filthy. The carpets were filthy. The walls were filthy. The bed was disgusting. Unfortunately, this was the only available hotel in town because of a convention. Avoid it if you can.

The staff was very gracious. The breakfasts were outstanding. Our room was clean and comfortable and quiet. The location was perfect - just 5 minutes from my nephews apartment. Good parking. Close to main highways, stores and eating places. The cost was very reasonable. We will return.

The TV did not work very well - it kept cutting in & out, which was annoying. Also housekeeping knocked on my door at 8:30 am, which struck me as ungodly early. But other than that it was fine.

We had a very nice week-end stay. The area is nice! and had everthing we needed. The continential breakfast is wonderful

This hotel has what I needed and that is location, clean, helpful, fitness, computer station, continental breakfast. . Walking distance to many restaurants, and conveniences. Nice staff and very accomodating!

The room was great, especially for the price. My main complaint is that there weren't enough towels for us to shower and swim; we had to go to the front desk to ask for more because there were none by the pool. But this was a small problem that was easily resolved.

I usually stay here when in town and the accommodations work for the needs that I have.

THE SERVICE WAS FINE AND THE ROOMS WERE CLEAN. THE PLACE JUST NEEDS AN OVERHAUL. FROM OLD WALLPAPER ON THE WALLS TO THE SMELL OF 20 YR OLD CIGARETTE SMELL.

I wasn't expecting a clean well managed hotel because the price was so low. Boy was I shocked to find this hotel was very, very clean; management and staff were excellent.;Breakfast was great!!! It was worth more than we paid to stay there. I will stay here every time I am in Alexandria.

The only knock I would have is that the remote for the TV didn't work properly. Everything else was satisfactory. Good value for the price.

as in all motels the carpet was dirty. they were vaccumed, but still had ground in dirt that could have been carpet cleaned better. the overall stay was pleasent. the clerks and staff were pleasent and friendly.

The room was adequate for my needs, but there were a few hiccups that will probably keep me from staying there again. Any one of them wouldn't be enough on it's own - but all together, it's enough to make me search somewhere else next time: 1. First night - there were no towels or washclothes in my room. The front desk took care of me - but I shouldn't have had to worry about this. 2. Breakfast was plentiful and there was a large selection, but most of it was poor quality. The coffee was decent, and I ate some yogurt, but nothing else was worth touching. 3. The front desk clerk had only coded my key for 1 night instead of two, so when I went to my room the second night, I couldn't get in and had to walk to the front desk to get it fixed. The daytime clerk made a comment that the nighttime clerk had done this more than once.

Hotel was very quiet and clean. Very good free continental breakfast.
