We chose this motel because it was convenient to Arlington National Cemetery. It was easily accessible by car and there is a nearby metro station. It has ample free parking. The free parking and proximity to the metro station makes this an ideal motel as a base for touring the D.C. area. Quite affordable when compared to the upscale big name motels and hotels in the area. The room was large and the beds comfortable. Furniture was not upscale but it appeared new and was in very good condition. Hard to beat this motel for convenience and price. More or less a bare bones older motel. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. If you want a room with the essentials (refrigerator but no microwave) at a fair price, this should be quite satisfactory for you. We did notice a slight ammonia odor in the room. An air freshener may have been all that was needed to correct that. We saw no evidence of pet stains that may have caused the odor. The hotel is located in a mixed residential and commercial area. A few fast food restaurants adjacent and across the street.

The hotel is not beautiful from the outside, but the location is perfect in a nice neighbourhood, walking distance to the metro station, clean room and wonderful staff.
There is not much space for the breakfast but a good variety of fresh beagles, muffins, and fruits. You can also ask for yogourt and cream cheese. You can also buy Delicious food from the Whole Foods Market, walking distance.

This hotel has a good location, walking distance to the Orange and Silver line metro station, Village Square. If you are looking for food options, everything is close by. A burger place across the street, a 7-11 a block away, a 24 hour sandwich place Marios for after club food options. The is a popular Peruvian Chicken place, El Pollo Rico, just across the street. The Clarendon Restaurant and bar area is just walking distance. This area is very popular all over the Metro area. Then there are great coffee places. The Ballston restaurant and club scene is only a metro station away, or you can walk to it. The Orange line is connected to downtown DC and tourists can easily visit. For business folks this hotel would be a great location too. The hotel itself is not new. But, it is one of the cheapest options in Arlington. The staff are great. Pretty helpful. The rooms are clean and some people stay a long time here. The rooms are old though, but for convenience and location, this hotel cannot be beat.

I'm very used to staying at the brand named hotels like Holiday Inn, Sheraton, Hilton, etc...after not being able to find a room at one of those hotels, I took a chance and was very pleased with the friendly, polite staff and other guests. Very clean rooms, very safe and quiet, with free internet and cable, and continental breakfast and very INEXPENSIVE compared to the brand named hotels. Great Value for the Price!! Made me reconsider staying at motels vice the other well known hotels. You should try it out! Very old school where you park your car up to your room and take your luggage in. Reminded me of my old childhood days when I traveled with my parents.

Room Tip: Very inexpensive and close proximity to restaurants and there's Chinese and pizza delivery
