Just 4 mi (6.5 km) from the airport, Towne Motel Alexandria puts you within a 15-minute drive of Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument. Free perks include WiFi and self parking. Rooms feature bonuses like refrigerators and microwaves.
Great for sightseeing and conventions on a budget. Pros: Excellent service, great prices, great location just south of D.C. And a short uber or Lyft for just about anything. Free parking on site was a big bonus. Cons: Had to ask for toilet paper but that was about it.
Good for the pricePros: I stayed here while visiting DC for leisure. It's good for the money, considering it is at least half the price of most hotels you'll get closer to DC. It's also within walking distance (albeit a long walk) from the Metro. Everything was clean enough. Don't expect fancy, but it has the basics. Also on my last day there, they offered me free luggage storage because my flight was later in the day.Cons: Alexandria is a weird place. Some areas seem nice, others a bit shady. Walking to the Metro, you'll see a mix of nice condos and low-end apartments. Also the walk to the Metro is a good 15-20 minutes, and it takes another 20 minutes on the Metro to get into DC.
Pros: I stayed 4 days, and my room was maintained impeccably clean and well organized by staff. The room was cute and very comfortable. Cold air conditioning, which was great in late June. Lighting, desk, and chairs were all perfect. Nice fridge. 100's of TV stations, so endless shows to choose from. Staff were sooo friendly, pleasant, and helpful!! Smelled slightly stuffy, but didn't notice it after 2 minutes. The location was excellent: I parked my car for 4 straight days, as I could walk to everything from the motel. Great grocery store a block away, lots of good places to eat. Cost was a fraction of nearby hotels. I would definitely return.
