“OUTSTANDING!”
Reviewed 10 June 2011

The Highlander Motel is awesome!. It's clean, safe, and half the price of other hotels in the area. The staff are friendly. The location is great too, being a short walk from the metrorail station to DC. I highly recommend this place.

This hotel offers everything you need to survive a couple of days in the DC area, from a clean bedroom and comfortable bed to free Internet access, including a reasonably good continental breakfast. You pay 50% of what you would pay in any of the fancy nearby hotels, but if you need the extra assistance that you might take for granted in any of those pricier hotels, forget it. You will be greeted by somebody behind a thick glass window, and if you—like me—would like to print your boarding passes at the hotel, you are going to be disappointed when you hear that they won't do that for you.

I stayed here while on a visit to NSF. It's an easy walk to NSF, free parking at the motel. The motel was exceptionally clean. It's a simple room (think plastic cups-- not glass), no coffee maker, though there's coffee and a free (simple) breakfast in the lobby. Certainly fit my needs and was an excellent value.

We stayed four nights at the Highlander Motel in Arlington. The motel is very conveniently located. the next Metro is about 200 meters away and gives you access to Washington's metro system. Very easy and fast train rides to most of the city's main attractions. In the motel, you get a decent bed for a reasonable price. we loved the complimentary breakfast and well as the free Wi-Fi internet access. Try to get a bed at the backside of the hotel, as there is quite a lot of traffic on Wilson Boulevard.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while visiting Washington for vacation. The subway station is only a couple of blocks away, and it is only a short ride to the Washington mall, Smithsonian, National cemetery etc. The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast, but we opted for some of the very nice breakfast places nearby. Several excellent bars, pubs and restaurants are in walking distance from the hotel, so we ended up having dinner in the vicinity of the hotel rather than in downtown DC for 3 of the 4 nights we spent. Extremely clean rooms, very good shower, free WiFi, and a fridge in the room. Quiet environment despite the proximity to a fairly busy road. Excellent value, would definitely stay there again.

When planning our family trip to DC I wanted a hotel near the Metro line, in a safe neighborhood, with places to eat near by. The Highlander was all of these. Our room was clean with free wi-fi a refrigerator large enough for our needs a sink outside the bathroom cable TV and free breakfast. The metro is a very short walk away with a Starbucks located above. There is a pizza place next door and a grocery store about a 2 min drive from the hotel also a great bbq place across the street from the store the neighborhood was quiet and seemed very safe with houses behind the hotel I had no fear when walking back from the Metro at 10pm with my family, The staff at the hotel was very friendly and even left enough towels everyday for all 4 of us without us asking. The only bad things I can say are the pillows were a bit flat and there is no clock in the room or coffee maker but we brought our own so it was no big deal.

We were travelling round and decided to add Washington DC to our list of sites, we had done no research so had no idea the hotels could be so expensive. We asked at a Holiday Inn, which had no rooms and they recommended the Highlander.
At half the price of what all other hotels were charging, We were a bit dubious at first but the rooms are clean, comfortable and we had no problems using this as a base.
