It has been many years since we have stayed at a Best Western hotel. On arrival we received a nice welcome but unfortunately it was not an indication on what was to come. The decor, paintwork, carpets and general cleanliness all badly need attention . In our bathroom there was a large damp patch on the wall, the paint was flaking off onto the carpet.( see photo) The bed linen and towels were not white but gray. The result was that we found no pleasure in being in the hotel. The carpets throughout the hotel need changing and the paintwork needs to be redone. The breakfast buffet however was good. The covered parking was good and the shuttle service was efficient. Our conclusion is that we did not have what we expected for our money. We did not tell the hotel management as there was nothing in the immediate that they could do to improve things.

Room Tip: Don't stay here until it has been refurbished!

Picked this hotel due to it's proximity to the Pentagon for the Rolling Thunder Rally. The quality of the room and facility exceeded my expectations. This hotel will remain on my radar for future stays.

I find it always a bit peculiar when people want to pay Days Inn prices but expect Mandarin Hotel Standards. Yes the BW Colony Inn is a bit vintage and that shows in some places, but our room is really clean and kept very tidy by housekeeping, the staff is helpful and friendly, the room features a fridge, tv, coffeemaker, desk and chair and for breakfast uo can have sausages and omlett with you toast, waffles, fresh fruit and some yogurts. Free coffee and Ice are available, and the hotel has a fee shuttle that takes guests to the nearest airport, Metro Station or Kings Street, i.e. Old Town Alexandria. We have stayed here for two nights and have another two to go and we ahre really happy with our choice.

Room Tip: Second floor to the back

I picked this hotel on the advice of a coworker and was not disappointed. The shuttle was wonderful. Stops included the Airport for pickup and drop-off, the Metro station, and dinner each night. The hotel staff were friendly and professional. The room was simple, but clean. The beds and pillows were better than expected. The breakfast was nothing special, but it was clean and there was hot food as well. The coffee wasn't bad either. I'd strongly consider staying there again.
