We stayed here for two nights on the last leg of our honeymoon and had a lovely time. The shuttle bus service is great as it will take you to Alexandria where there are some fab bars and restaurants, Regan Airport or to the nearest metro stop to link easily to DC. Breakfast was much better than expected - the selection was good and the corned beef hash delicious!

Hotel was clean and staff friendly but hotel as hard to find even with GPS and desk clerk could not give good directions. No place close to eat. I almost changed my reservation as I could not get good directions to hotel but once I found it, rest of staff was very friendly and accommodating which means a lot when you travel all the time. Being a single women traveling, I would like to be in a room closer to front desk. I was at end of hall next to door and this made me a little uncomfortable.

Denise O,
Sorry to hear you had a hard time finding us. I know the GPS systems are not always correct and can cause frustration. We are happy you found us and that you had a good stay. Just to let you know the doors on the ends of the building are locked and no one can entry with out a room key. Hope that makes you feel safer.
Please come back and stay with us again the next time you come to our area here in Alexandria.

The hotel was neat,clean,the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help you.the location is perfect to enjoy night life in old town or take the metro to D.C. To see the attractions and monuments. The hotels free shuttle will pick you up and drop you off. Great find on a budget.

Safe, clean, and convenient hotel is a good alternative if you don't need to be in DC. The complimentary breakfast is about what you would expect from a "free" breakfast - never tried the eggs, I couldn't get past their appearance. The facility is older but well maintained and the staff was friendly. A short walk to a walking path along the Potomac.

It provides good breadfast. It's near the Reagon Airport, and the shuttle bus takes us right there on time. It's near DC and enjoys good view and it's a tranquil place. I think it's a good stay when I was in DC.
