Thank you for taking time and choosing nice word for our property and services . I agree we are a small no frill hotel but do not cut corners when it comes to services. You are correct its a great location and minutes away from Nations capital through metro or by car. You overall low rating certainly do put us at a stop to reconsider, where we are wrong. I will certainly discuss with my team. Thank you again for choosing us for your lodging needs with a hope you will provide us another opportunity to serve you again..

This hotel is extremely convenient to I-66, East and West. There are other major roads nearby, but I couldn't figure them out. It's very convenient (10-15 minute walk) to a Metro Station. I called ahead and requested a "quiet" room. They were very accommodating and put us in

Thank you for taking time and writing about your recent stay with us. You are so correct its a great location being minutes away from Nations Capital and with an easy access to metro. All our rooms at the first floor have window though in first impression it feels like basement but technically its not as its laid at a steep site. I agree our bathrooms are small but they do meet the standards of franchise, neat and clean with excellent shower, Furthermore our staff`s diligent and detail efforts are maintain these very well. Again we are small an economy brand hotel with 47 rooms at a very busy and have sitting area of 20 guests at a time. We also exceed the recommendations of our breakfast by offering healthy options to our guests. The points you raised do need some attention as our renovations are already in the pipeline, we hope to to fulfill these deficiencies as well . Thank you again with hope to see you again soon.

Thank you for taking time and sharing your experience with us . Its pleasure that you enjoyed your stay and acknowledge our services and ideal location. You are correct we are very convenient for DC visitors due to proximity of metro train. The convenience of train makes this commute between dc and Virginia much easier and affordable. I am so glad you not only found us but decided to recommend us to others. Thank you again and we are eagerly waiting for your next visit.

This was our second time staying at the Econo Lodge in Arlington. We had another great stay. The hotel is located just a nice 10 minute walk from the East Falls Church Metro station on the Orange or Silver line. The hotel was very clean. All the staff were very pleasant.

This not correct hotel has direct access to metro station without involving through a very nice residential neighborhood or bike trail. Metro station is only 2 1/2 block walk takes 7 to 10. 2.9 kilometer is a far fetched estimate ... just check the google and you will find the fact.

"Great location and in a very nice neighborhood with easy access to Metro Station"
