“Wonderful surprise”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

We found our way to this hotel because we travel with our dog. He was welcomed here for a $25 charge. We spent a great night in a large, well-decorated modern room. The bed was perfect. The bathroom had a large counter to hold all my toiletries. We were on the ninth floor, the top, and enjoyed the beautiful night view out the window. Mohammed at the desk was most helpful. The hotel is conveniently located, about 10 minutes from Old Town Alexandria. We would most definitely stay here again.

I enjoyed my weekend stay at that hotel since it was a lot more reasonable than the actual hotel that hosted the Virginia Jaycees Fall Convention. The room, amenties, and hot breakfast provided were good.

I stayed here last fall before moving to Alexandria. We stayed one night (my parents and boyfriend) before moving into our apartment the next day. I was the only one out of our group that seemed to find the stay comfortable and decent after a long drive and the night before sleeping on an air mattress. We mainly chose the hotel because it was pet friendly and near where we'd be moving in the next day. Our room ended up having a fridge and microwave, neither of which we had thought came with the room, which was nice, and didn't end up coming with my parent's room. We pretty much ordered take out and relaxed for the night. My dad did try to order food from their "restaurant" that night, and I remember he wasn't impressed by it. Breakfast was decent the next morning.

Even though we didn't use the service, the Van Dorn metro station isn't that far away and probably a 20-30 minute ride from the main attractions in DC. If I was still in the area, I would recommend anyone visiting us to consider this hotel since it's close to the metro and more reasonably priced since it's not right in DC or downtown Alexandria.

Thank you for staying with us last year and for takning the time to post a review, we are happy that you enjoyed your short stay and that it was memorable enough to write about.

Our 'Cafe' does have a limited menu serving pizza, hamburgers, wings and a few salads. It is more a snack bar than a restaurant as we don't do table service. However, we recently opened our 'Snack Shop' located next to our front desk in the lobby. Our Snack Shop is open 2 hours a day with beverages, chips, cookies, frozen entrees, ice cream, beer and wine which adds more options for our guests who don't want to go out.

Thank you again for staying with us, we hope to see you again soon.

Stayed here for the Marine Corps Marathon in DC and it was excellent. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly, polite and helpful. Provided a free bagged breakfast to the marathoners that was perfect,and the shuttle to/from the metro was quick and easy. Waited less than 5 minutes for the shuttle. Would definitely stay here again.

We visited our son in Alexandria. The hotel was very close to his apartment.

The staff was very pleasant, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was great.

The computer & printer on the first floor was very handy to print the route home.

We cut our trip short because of the "shutdown" in DC, but that was in no way caused by the hotel.

We recommend this hotel. Although we didn't use it, there was a shuttle to the nearby Van Dorn St Metro Station.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 6th floor. There are 2 elevators. We imagine the elevators would be busy in peak...

Thank you for staying at our hotel on your visit to our area, we are very glad that you enjoyed your stay.

The room tip you added to your review notes that you stayed in one of our king suites, we are so glad you enjoyed it, we are very proud of our suites. Many hotels call their rooms suites when they are just larger rooms while our suites have two rooms with a seperate living room and bedroom.

Thank you again for staying with us, we hope to see you again soon.

We spent three nights here, having picked it for accessibility to Mt. Vernon, as well as for affordability. Good call. Although it's an older facility, our room was comfortable, with great beds and bedding, very clean, and super convenient to DC when we wanted to take the metro in to see the sights. The hotel even offers complimentary van service to and from the station, which is about five minutes away.

The breakfast was a notch above the typical, with real scrambled eggs instead of the yellow hockey pucks we found elsewhere on the trip.

Staff was courteous and helpful, with an array of printed instructions for getting from here to there. The only downside was an air conditioner that came on like a jet engine, so loud we had to change the volume to be able to still hear the TV. It might bother a light sleeper but didn't bother me.

I will definitely recommend this place to my budget conscious friends as a safe, convenient, affordable place to stay in an expensive area.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room not facing on Van Dorn; traffic is pretty heavy. We were on the 9th floor...

Judy,

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write about your stay with us. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and felt our hotel is a good value.

Yes, our hotel is a few years old but we have worked hard over the last two years to renovate almost everything inside the building with the exception of a few rooms that we hope to have completed over the winter months.

Thank you again for staying with us, we hope to see you again soon.
