I have stayed at the Americana over the past few years for Memorial Day weekend. Of all the hotels I've stayed in over the years I have to say the staff, prices and cleanliness is the best. I love the newly upgraded rooms. The area is beautiful and only a short walk to the METRO and Chrystal City attractions. I couldn't think of a better place to stay in the Arlington or DC area

Room was very clean, AC worked well. Very limited amount of highway noise, but nothing to keep you from sleeping. Mattress was comfortable, breakfast was good. front desk staff polite and helpful. very close to subway system.

all in all very good room at a fantastic price

We really enjoyed staying at the Americana. Not fancy but very comfortable, quiet (even rooms on the highway side), small frig in room, good temp control in rooms, clean, pleasant and helpful staff, nice clientele, very nice continental breakfast (several fresh fruits, muffins, bagels, healthy cereals, coffee/tea…nothing packaged), free parking, free shuttle, walking distance to points of interest in Pentagon City, safe area, good price. It was funny seeing the parts of our room that had been updated (beds, linens, paint, pictures, TV) and those were not yet updated ('80s chairs, early '60s bathroom…but totally functional).
We will definitely stay there again when we're visiting the area. (4 rather than 5 stars only because hallways and elevator were warmish and rooms not completely renovated.)

After searching for a hotel close to the metro that was affordable for our budget, we chose the Americana Hotel. Beware-it can be tricky to find because if you blink you might miss the exit from the highway. When we checked in we weren't able to connect to wifi so the staff let us switch to one of the newly renovated rooms. The rooms were clean but nothing special. It was a quick walk to the metro and there is a free shuttle that we used to go to travel locally as well. The staff was friendly, breakfast was good and the location was perfect!

Room Tip: It's worth upgrading to a renovated room.

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. We're glad to hear you appreciated our affordable rates, clean rooms, convenient location, friendly staff, and valuable free amenities. We do apologize for the initial trouble you experienced with the Wi-Fi but are pleased to hear we were able to remedy the problem in a way that was acceptable to you; we also agree our renovated rooms are worth the very small upgrade fee!

Thank you as well for pointing out that it can be a little difficult to find us. Unfortunately for us, an exit ramp and raised highway was built across the front of our property, so we've been forced to create and use an entrance on the back of the property. For other guests who are trying to find us and having trouble, please call 703-979-3772 and we'd be glad to help!

Thanks again for staying with us and letting others know of your opinion. We hope to see you again the next time you're in the Washington, D.C. area!

Sincerely,
Your friends at Americana Hotel

Pros: cheap, clean, free parking, shuttle

Cons: breakfast is very limited, rooms are HOT, halls are sweltering

I just can't get comfortable in a hot room. We requested a fan the first night and were told to call maintenance in the morning...so the first night - no sleep. It was cheap and clean, but the window unit just couldn't cool the room. I would not stay here again because of this.
