Recent guest reviews

Much smaller than the pics and to find a dried up confirm in my trash can was quite unsettling. Cleanliness is not a priority it seems.

I liked almost everything from this hotel. It was near a walmart, target, food and, most importantly, DC. The only bad thing I noticed was that they didn't change the sheets the whole week we were there(even that they state they do a complete room service every 3 days). One day I put the covers in the sofa because it was warm but when they did the bed, they didn't put the covers back in the beds; they left them in the sofa. I really don't know if that is bad service or something you'll expect. On the other hand, they did changed our bath towels everyday, took the trash everyday and just did a quick clean up of the room. The noise was ok for a hotel near the freeway and the other guest weren't making any noise. There is a lot of parking and they do have an elevator. The great thing is that they just added a microwave and a fridge to the rooms. We received ours while we were staying there and it was awesome. We went and buy some sodas and fruit to use the new fridge.

I had a meeting the next day at the National Harbor. Hotels there are ridiculously expensive, so I stayed one exit away for less than half the price. There were some... interesting... characters hanging around the hotel, but it's Northern Virginia, what can you do? The rooms were great and the staff was very helpful.

Absolutely the most horrific experience I've ever had staying here. Quality of the room sucked. There were bed bugs smh. I'm still waiting on my refund for this pitiful excuse of a place to rest your head.

The staff was helpful. The stairs and access ways were out of doors as motels of olden days. This was not a disadvantage for me, just a surprise. There was only one restaurant within walking distance, across a busy Richmond Highway's six lanes of traffic. The ventilation system was noisy but not uncomfortable. The bathroom facilities were adequate. It was perfect for an overnight stay.

So much to say. The door to the room was open when I arrived. A little scary. The door wouldn't lock so went to the front desk. No help there except that since it was the last room of that type, I'd have to get a cheaper room without getting any money back! The conversation between the front desk and I were not that honest. Smh. Went back to the room and we eventually figured out a way to lock the door. Then the toilet didn't flush. Had to refill the tank with the ice bucket to have water to flush. The next time it actually worked. I'm a member of their hotel and have had a big problem before. I'm done. If I arrived early i probably would've gotten a decent room. Also, I needed the fridge and it wasn't cold for my food and drinks because it was left open. The need to get it together! The tub didn't look that great either. I should've taken pics.

First of all as soon as we walk in the front desk the lady never greeted us. She right away ask for my ID. We drove almost 12hrs then even a smile we never get frm her. As we walk to the room its way different from what it is in the picture. Like the ref or microwave is not included in the room. The bathroom is too small. The toilet doesnt flush properly. They only provided us 1 small soap considering there are two guest. The flooring you feel the dust. And the smell is just horrible. Would definitely not recommend this one.

Comfortable beds, nice TV, fridge & microwave nice touch, no problem with getting later check out time. Takes about 12 to 15 minutest to walk to Metro, but bus service close by. Only one restaurant within walking distance but it's a good one - very reasonably price buffet.

The staff was extremely helpful with driving directions to nearby restaurants, and attractions, and also helping with minor problems. We didn't use the WIFI, so we didn't know how to rate it.

I was amazed at the quality of stay I got for the price. I was here for a convention at National Harbor, which is a short easy drive from the hotel. I also had several meetings in DC. A short pleasant drive up the parkway and I was right in the thick of things. Extremely convenient location. The rooms are brand new, very well done. Comfortable, attractive, inviting. A very stylish redesign. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The Wifi is free and fast, the coffee is hot, the showers are hot, the beds are clean with great, new, comfortable mattresses. Very very pleased with this stay. The only downside was a bit of loudness from other guests at night. Not too late, but loud music in the parking lot, talking outside the building, and feet running. But those were generally isolated and didn't go too very late. In a week's stay, there are bound to be some things.

Hotel was average and met requirements just for have a place to crash.

It was a business trip and the hotel did just fine for its purpose. It's about 10 min from Alexandria Old Town and 4 min from the main highways. Good value for the money.

the standard room hotel was horrible for the price. no microwave or fridge. Tried to upgrade but the computer systems were down all weekend. I will never stay with this company again.

To be honest I wasn't expecting much because you get what you pay for. Upon checking in the people at the front desk were nice. When they gave us the key to our room we entered and upon closing the door the door handle came off. I went to the bathroom and when I flushed the toilet, the handle broke off as well. Needless to say this place is a little run down. They switched our room without a problem. The second room didn't fall apart but the bathroom walls were kind of cruddy as was the floor. Thank god it was only for one stay.

Staff was very friendly and helpful, room was clean and a great price for the location.

Good ambience and location .Hotel staff need to clean rooms as promised when requested.

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.

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.

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.
