I stayed there for two nights this past weekend. It is, I think the Americana Hotel is the last independently owned hotel in the Jefferson Davis Highway or Route 1 corridor in Crystal City. Yes, the decor is somewhat dated. For example, there is a coke bottle opener bolted to the frame of my bathroom's door. When was the last...

My husband and I drove down to DC from NH in September. We chose this hotel mostly based on the reviews here and an amazing price. The parking was included which was a huge plus for us since we were driving down. We left the car at the hotel most days, since we took the metro everywhere except one day....

We came to Washington for my Dad's inurnment ceremony at the national cemetery. (My stepmom stayed at the nearby Key Bridge Marriott; she had a great view, but had a smaller room for way more than twice the price.) We found the hotwater faucet handle in our bathroom sink almost twisted off so we had to use the undersink valve...

This place was a steal for the money. My room was updated except the bathroom, which seemed to be original. It was clean, the staff was friendly, they offered a free shuttle around the area, free breakfast and the price was amazing. Recommend and will be back 😍

The hotel is nothing special but the staff was great and the location is awesome. The hotel is kind of hard to find, as the address is listed on Jefferson Davis Highway but the entrance to the hotel is on Eads St. The rooms were nothing special but comfortable and great for the price.
