Simple, no frills hotel super-conveniently located near the Virginia Sq metro stop. Great nightly rates, FREE parking (this alone is impossible to beat if you're driving from out of state and leaving your car to metro around) and nice staff. Excellent location, will always stay again!

I stayed at the Highlander a numerous times when, post 911, I had to do a lot of military reserve duty in Arlington. They were always good to me and it sure was nice to have a place to stay which was within walking distance of my duty station. I returned to the Highlander last week for the funeral of an old friend at Arlington National Cemetery, one of the many DC area landmarks easily reached from the Highlander. If your destination is beyond walking distance, and like me you prefer not to drive up there, the Highlander IS withing walking distance of two Metro stations. The Highlander's rooms are clean and spacious. I can't speak to the quietness of the streetside rooms, but my rooms on the back side have always been quiet. There are flat screen TVs and refridgerators in the rooms. They offer a basic continental breakfast. If you find that insufficient, there are a number of good restaurants, cafes, etc. close by. Weeknight rates are good by DC standards. Weekend rates are even better. Parking is free.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are almost certainly quieter.

We had a very nice weekend stay at Highlander Motel. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable, location perfect for visiting Washington. Place may be outdated but it was clean and rooms comfortable. I will definitely recommend this motel to my friends.

The Highlander is an honest to goodness urban motel. It is very good value for money. We stayed there for eight nights and used the subway from nearby Virginia Square to go into Washington DC. The rooms are a good size and clean and comfortable. The breakfast is of good quality and the maid service is prompt and efficient. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Little extras like free use of umbrellas ($20 refundable deposit) are handy. We can recommend this motel with confidence. The Silver Grill Diner and the Mad Rose Tavern are also very good value - just up Wilson Blvd to Clarendon Sq.

The Motel may be older but the rooms were updated with nice furniture and carpet and very clean with a walk shower. The matresss in both rooms were full size and a little dated. The continental breakfast was nice with three or four choices of fresh fruit, donuts, begels and yogurt. Coffee was a little strong for my liking. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our rooms were on the second floor in the rear of the building where it was very quite in the evenings. Large free parking area was a plus! The neighborhood felt save and there were restaurants within walking distance.We drove into DC (5 mi.) and visited George Washingtons Mt.Vernon estate (15 mi.) without a problem. We really enjoyed our stay and we are planning to go back again next year!
Thank You Highlander owners and staff for a great stay!

Room Tip: Staff is very friendly and willing to help you! We made reservations on line with a request to stay...
