Front desk staff was nice, room was clean, though it did not have a microwave snack center had a microwave that could be used 24/7. Breakfast was great. Fresh food, cereals, eggs, yogurt and juices. Small quaint hotel, not the fanciest but the name describes it. For the price couldn't have asked for better.

I have 3 criteria I use to judge lodging. Bed, shower, and coffee. Best Western Old Colony Inn was excellent on all three! We both slept GREAT! Sometimes hotel beds SEEM comfortable at first, but once you are in there for a while, you toss and turn, and wake-up all night...not here. The shower was hot with good pressure and... More

I stayed here for one night before a flight. If you have a morning flight, you'll need to find your own transportation as their shuttle service starts at 7 am and ends at 9 pm. The service was great, but the rooms could use some updates. The beds were comfortable, but it would have been nice if the room was... More

My go too spot. They always provide excellent service. They provide a shuttle for my interests in downtown; the driver was super and when I want to return back to the Inn, I just call for pickup...wonderful. And they have free parking. How good is that??? Bathroom needs some updating.

Stayed at this Best Western recently on a business trip. I was pleasantly surprised. For an older hotel, this was very clean and had an excellent staff to help. It was close to the King St. area, so dinner options were nearby. Plenty of parking on site.

Excellent shuttle service to and from DCA and the metro subway system. Hot, all you can eat, breakfast every morning, assorted items. Clean rooms and great beds. Staff exceptional. Within walking distance to many stores, restaurants, and historic sites in old town Alexandria. A hidden gem waiting for you to discover it.

Breakfast is excellent - lots of choices (eggs, sausage, pastries, waffles, cereal). Hotel front desk was very helpful and friendly. All in all, a great little... More

The room was nicely decorated, clean, and the temperature was easily adjusted. The location is perfect for visiting Old Alexandria and Washington D.C. Breakfast was good! We loved... More

The hotel is quiet and in a residential area although very close to the main artery in and out of Alexandria. There is a shuttle that will take you to the airport and in to Old Town.
