Days Inn Arlington/Washington DC

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was nice and convenient. The House Maids gave me extra towels when requested. The Hotel needs to be renovated. The Breakfast needs to have more than oatmeal to it as well.

Factilities are ancient and in disrepair, staff unaccomodating and rigid. No worthwhile shuttle van service, and constantly passing off transportation to cabs and services in cahoots with them. Rooms horribly out of date with ancient plugs and tvs. Yech!

First bad experience,just because is not even one part of what you see in the pictures

I couldn't get the free wifi. Called the front desk, but they couldn't help. Tried to call the 800# internet help desk listed in the card, but also couldn't help. The hotel was dirty and there were a lot of broken stuffs.

Old motel property in need of demolition. Furniture is beat up and soiled, carpet had soil path from the entry door. Old tv that only could be viewed in black and white. The musty smell of the room would be indescribable. Graffiti covered the bathroom exterior window and pry marks up and down the entry door frame from past attempted break ins. The neighborhood can only be described as sketchy. Awful choice, spend more money for a decent stay elsewhere. I left this place as soon as I could. The only nice surprise was my car was not stollen or broken into. Very relived it was untouched. Stay away!

The bed is nothing more than a box spring. Gives you neck and back pain. Also lice possible. Orbitz should be fired for recommending this crap.

We reserved 2 rooms. The A/C units were obviously old and rusty and they did not work until a motel staff member came to correct the A/C issues. Although the maintenance service was prompt and courteous, the "high" setting on the A/C units was rather more like what you expect of the "low" setting. The mattress we had was lumpy and the sheets were scratchy, as were the towels in the bathroom, although everything was clean. The continental breakfast was supposed to be from 6:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. (the closing time seemed early to us). They evidently close up breakfast prior to 9:30 a.m.; a member of our party came back at 9:15 saying that everything was closed up. No coffee in the lobby, either, but tea drinkers were in luck...they had hot water. Hurrah. Breakfast is nothing special, definitely on the low end of typical continental fare. The interior of the "restaurant" is old, dark, and shabby, and not all of the lights worked at the individual booths.

On a night when D.C. hotel rates were through the roof, this place was a steal. The minute you see the room, you'll know why. Actually forget about seeing. It starts with the smell. The mustiness is overpowering. First thing you'll do is reach for the window. The good news is that it's within easy reach since everything in the cramped room is a few inches apart. Close your nose and open your eyes and you'll be hurled back to the 80's. Which coincidentally may have been the last time the place got a proper cleaning. Didn't check the TV since the room next door offered enough drama thanks to the paper thin walls. Unfortunately no mute button. Bottom line: avoid, but if you have no choice one night stay absolute max. What you save in the rate, you'll probably end up spending on hand sanitizer. Plus: *great late night market across the street *lobby - updated, clean, modern (unfortunately did not appear to have a sofa bed)

Other than being an old facility, the room was rather warm. The heat was on when we checked in even though it had been a warm day in February. We could not turn the heat off or put the A/C on. The serviceman turned the heat off but was unable to turn the A/C on because of the time of the year. Once the heat was turned off, the room became bearable the next day.

Los alimentos del desayuno eran atrasados y muy poca variedad , la habitación pésima muy mal estado deteriorado el baño y sucio no vuelvo a ese lugar ni aunque me den la habitación gratis

Microwave coffee maker refrigerator and everything worked

Chain lock broken. Main light inoperable. HVAC inoperable. Tiny, run down, room. Mold in the air gave me headache and made me wheeze. DO NOT STAY HERE

Good budget place to stay. Minutes from DC. You're not going to want to spend much time in the motel, but you probably have other plans anyway.

Good value for the price so you can't expect all the amenities. The 'free' shuttle was only available for very limited hours. The breakfast was fine, filling, just not gourmet. The staff was very pleasant and accomodating. We spent most of our time sight seeing, not in the hotel. If you want fancy, look elsewhere.

The staff was very polite and helpful. The room we were assigned had issues with the toilet, but they immediately changed us to a different room. Internet never worked but we didn't care since we were sightseeing most of the day. Rooms were clean and environment was quiet. The hotel is far from the metro station but they have a shuttle that takes you to Rosslyn station for free every hour.

Water was leaking into the walls. The place was old and not cared for. For less money can certainly find something cleaner and more updated.

Check in was easy enough. The staff was expecting me due to my prior reservation, so they had everything ready when I arrived. However, room #127 was in pretty rough shape. I'm really trying not to be too harsh, but the room was pretty bad. I'm not a germ freak like my friend Casey, but even I never took my socks off when I was walking around the room. And I wasn't about to put my bare feet on the shower floor, so I laid down a towel inside before showering. Granted, it was probably about as clean as the staff could make it, but the room was just worn out. The carpet and the bathroom tiles seemed grimy with age, the shower ceiling had water spots all around, and the shower window frame was literally rusted through. Plenty of fresh air though, right? Oh, and let me tell you about the paper thin walls. I could hear everything that my neighbors did. From the foreign language arguments, to the urinating and flushing, to the TV/radio that was broadcasting literally the entire time that I was in the room (I'm pretty sure that I was listening to a softball tournament...all night long.) So if you choose to rent this room, I encourage you to bring a noise maker of some sort, or at least download an app and be prepared to run your phone all night long. On a good note, the bed was nice. Clean sheets and pillows. True, it appeared that the comforter was installed in the 1980's along with the rest of the furniture, but the rest of the bed was OK.

The room smelled bad the tv does not work and a water leak in the bathroom floor wet

This place is really run down and in need of some remodeling. Unopened condoms on the floor. Worn out mattresses, see previous sentence. Must be a favorite of the DC politicians! Glad it was only for the night, $150!?!

Shuttle to metro station was nice. Need ventilation in the bathroom, after a shower water drips from the ceiling. Things were worn and outdated. Clean except for the Oreo cookie on the heater. Convienent and felt safe, staff was friendly and helpful.

aged & uncooperative

Everyone

Factilities are ancient and in disrepair, staff unaccomodating and rigid. No worthwhile shuttle van service, and constantly passing off transportation to cabs and services in cahoots with them. Rooms horribly out of date with ancient plugs and tvs. Yech!
