“Nice for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2006

This hotel was average. The rooms are your typical square rooms with a t.v. and phone and that's basically it. It is near a major highway, so the morning traffic is CRAZY! The t.v.'s did however have HBO and Cinemax, so that made me happy. They also serve coffee and a few different muffins and donuts in the morning. There are a ton of restaurants within 5 miles or less, and it's close to the airport as well as D.C. I mean when your paying less than 100 dollars a night in this area, that is a BARGAIN! Don't expect a jacuzzi tub, plush carpets, room service, and valet parking...your at a red roof inn. If you want all those other things, then travel to Crystal City, where you can get a GREAT room and everything for about 250-400 dollars a night!

My mother, daughter, dog and I stayed at the Red Roof Inn for a couple of nights while traveling through to the Northeast. I didn't expect much for the price, but was still disappointed. Our "non-smoking" room reeked of stale cigarette smoke. We were so uncomfortable with the cleanliness of the carpet that we wore shoes from the bed to the bathroom. I wouldn't even allow my dog to lie directly on the carpet. Since this was my first time traveling with a dog, I resolved that this was the norm for a hotel room that allowed dogs. I stayed at five other hotels during the same trip and discovered that all of the other hotels were MUCH cleaner. The location was fairly close to DC, but with the morning work traffic and the hotel being on a major thoroughfare, don't plan to go anywhere until mid-morning. While we weren't threatened or approached in any way, we didn't feel that the location was the safest either. This hotel would be good for someone who only needs a place to sleep for one cheap night. You don't want to spend any time here...at all. If you need a nice place to stay with you dog in the DC area, go to the Comfort Inn Shady Grove in Gaithersburg, Maryland. You'll be glad you did.

This inn is a typical Red Roof Inn where the rooms are usually neat and clean and come with just the basic necessities; lacking in fineries. Good value for being not too far from DC and just a few miles south of old town Alexandria. Motel is on busy highway and not in a problem area. There are many stores and restaurants within a few miles.
