It was FINE for the price. I'm accustomed to fancy Hiltons. This wasn't THAT. However, the rooms were clean. It smelled a little musty. Expect exterior halls. But the area is so expensive, that the price made this Red Roof Inn a good choice. Was it AWESOME? NO. But, awesome in DC costs $400 per night. If you just want...

Sarah did a great job to quickly check me in at the hotel. I had my wife and 2 dogs. I was at the back of the hotel 3rd floor which was quiet. I had large king room which was clean and relatively spacious. Great price for room. Good location to fast food and 2 mi from Old Town Alexandria....

I chose Red Roof because the pictures and the reviews were good and the price was reasonable. When I got to the room it had a horrific smell and when I looked in the bathroom it seemed to be stool left in the toilet. The management did change my room but the new room was no better but there was...

Red Roof Inns are generally very predictable--great value, modern accommodations, simple service. The Alexandria, VA Red Roof Inn is precisely in keeping with that trend. The rooms have been renovated, are clean, and are in keeping with the hotel chain's brand trend. Staff are adequate, the property is generally well-maintained, and the proximity to Old Town Alexandria and downtown DC...

The sign said all new rooms....not sure what they call new rooms. Friends had stayed and recommend it will never stay at another Red Roof Inn or Red Roof Inn plus.

I stayed here for a conference instead of at the National Harbor and saved about 200€ per night. It was well worth that price, and after orienting, it's very simple to get back to the convention center. Sarah at the front desk was extremely good about helping me navigate to the National Harbor and back. Her suggestion that I use...

Good comfortable stay in the premium room. Quiet. Polite front desk. Accessible by bus and metro. Small bathroom but clean. Safe in room for a small fee. Good pizza place down the road. Everything worked in the room. Prefer to have faced the rear side, not the highway side.

Just okay, that's all, but again, you get what you pay for. The beds were okay, the room itself was okay, and I would have given it a higher score, except the bathroom was a little scary.

Wonderful stay. Clean hotel, great staff, very helpful with directions and information. Would definately stay here again. Yes it's on a busy street but its near DC and Alexandria so thats to be expected. They gave me an option of floors to stay on and traveling with aging parents that was very helpful getting ground level.
