"Best Western - Old Colony Inn review"
The hotel has ample parking with no charge. The breakfast was better than we expected with hot and cold items. Friendly staff and room was very comfortable. We plan to stay here again when we visit family in Alexandria. Great location with reasonable rates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was excellent! The staff was friendly - even at 3AM - the common areas are clean and very well decorated. The room was perfect and quality bedding welcomed our road weary bodies. We were both asleep in less than two minutes. We felt very safe in historic residential area surrounding the hotel. This will be our preferred accommodations on […] our next trip to the DC area.

Was nice , I will definitely recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Functional, clean room."
I do find this hotel a nice, clean place. Simple but functional. Would like to see less visiting in the lobby by employees. Also. On this stay my room looked like it might have been under the final stages of remodel. Room 106. The door frame was half painted and a chair to sit on was missing. Thanks for the clean room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good, convenient place for Reagan flights (pendin"
It's not over yet because we've still got to go back and get our vehicles when we land from our flight. The story will be told when we see if they bang us hard on that our not.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old Colony Best Western"
The hotel was in a great location. Nikita the evening desk clerk was very kind and helpful. The only problem we encountered was the rooms took forever to get cleaned.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A pleasant stay"
I was in W for a few days attending a conference, and I chose this hotel for the convenient price/location/comfort rating. My experience was overall positive with a few highlights: on the positive side, the hotel has an excellent shuttle service for the nearby metro, extremely convenient and time precise (every half our from hotel, upon request from […] metro station); the breakfast was excellent with balanced nutritional and tasty items, good coffee and orange juice. I really enjoyed it! :-). The room was comfortable and clean; although the bathroom was a little small, I wasn't very bothered by this. On the less positive side, the hallways of the hotel smelled a little strange; I definitely think the management should improve on this. The bathroom products (little bottles of shampoo and bars of soap) needs improvement. As a little advise to the management, it is better to assume that in a 2 bedroom suite there will be two people staying rather than one. The quality of your products could be improved significantly with little addition to the price if you are just looking on the market for a little bit. Although I've had GPS, the hotel is somewhat difficult to find using Google maps because is a little secluded from the main street crossing in the nearby. Overall, my impression was good and I would consider this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, not a great lace to stay"
Facility needs significant updating. No elevator, sparsely furnished rooms, maintenance request not done. Not a clean place. Almost left after first night .Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice, but no elevator, and my wife complained about sheets, not being 100% cottonGenuine Expedia guest review
"Mostly Comfortable Inn"
Loved the aesthetic atmosphere. Some of the staff were very helpful and others seemed to be inconvienced by requests. The room was clean but I must admit the bed making was dreadful. Not seen such ill made beds in some time, if ever in a hotel. One day out of the four I stayed the bathroom floor was full of water. Overall I did enjoy the hotel inspite […] of my two complaints.

It was not explained at time of booking that their airport shuttle only went to Ronald Regan airport. Had to take an expensive taxi from BWI the night we landed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great visit"
The staff was exceptional, the rooms were very comfortable, and I plan to stay here each time I'm in town for business.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The BEST bed EVER!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to Park and DC easy access to Reagan INT"
It was good and all and all I really liked the hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
An older hotel, but it has been renovated and kept up to date. The breakfast was ample with waffle maker, cereal , fruit, and a daily hot item like breakfast burritos. It is centrally located and made it easy to get to many of the sights. It is not a grand hotel, but definitely nice and at a very good price for the area. The staff was very accommodating […] and never rushed us out at the end of breakfast. They were pleasant and always ready to help with any request. Can't beat the price with the free parking.

Had 8 people-3 rooms. Shuttle was a major + to go to King St even though we had two cars. Enjoyed the stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a small problem with the room AC but the staff jumped on it right away and made everything right. Great experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, charm, and hospitality"
This relatively small hotel is ideally located to enjoy Alexandria, DC, and Mount Vernon. This was our 3rd stay in less than a year, and the hotel is always consistently clean and the staff helpful and friendly. The free shuttles from the hotel to the metro make it a wonderful place to stay when enjoying the surrounding area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to metro stations"
For what we paid for our weeklong stay, there was no microwave or refrigerator that could be brought to our room. Microwave was in the snack area at the front desk, though we were offered to keep something in the fridge BEHIND the front desk...we declined. Hotel is older than I expected and had no elevator and we were on the 2nd floor. Was convenient […] to old town Alexandria and we did like the old time look of town. Was also close to metro rail by shuttle. (Breakfast was available but after 3 days we wanted a real breakfast, so we found a Dennys and an IHOP for the remainder of our stay.) Cold cereal, instant oatmeal, milk, yogurt, fruit, hard boiled eggs, juice were all good. Scrambled eggs were not good...I can only guess they were powdered. Sausage good. Waffles not so good...by the time it was done there was no soft middle, just 2 crispy sides. (Live in central Indiana and had to go to Elkhart for a weekend and stayed for 2 days in a Red Roof Inn. This place was also kind of old but there was a microwave and small fridge in the room. Fridge was not working very well but we still used it. We paid a little over half what we did at the Colony Inn.) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The property is kinda run down. Not very clean. Unimpressive breakfast food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel at a great price"
The hotel was extremely comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and elegantly decorated and the breakfast was first class. There were "real" bowls and silverware and plentiful food choices - both hot and cold. A shuttle provided access to the airport and Metro, and the location was an easy walk to Old Town Alexandria.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on edge of Old Town"
Loved the location, right on the GW Parkway on the north end of Old Town. The hotel is very old and there is no elevator so you have to lug your suitcases up the stairs if your room is on second floor. The room is outdated but clean. If you're looking for a reasonably priced room right in Old Town, this is a good place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Suprisingly Very Bad Best Western Hotel Experience"
We stayed in the hotel assuming that it was a typical best western plus experience. However, the hotel was really in a bad condition, no microwave and fridges in the room, I have two little toddlers. Tried to use microwave at the checked-in counter, it was not cleaned for at least three months. Cleaning lady was not even available, and hotel do not […] have elevator, if you stayed at the upper floor with lots of belongings due to kids, it is not a good idea to stay. Hotel room was smelling and AC was not available, only fan was working, we hardly breathed all night. The toddlers beds were in bad conditions and they were all in broken conditions, very dirty, ugly spots on the bed. So we could not use the beds for the kids. It was a terrible experience for all the family. Never recommend to stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean and the room was convenient. We had a nice continental breakfast each morning. The shuttle service to Old Town Alexandria and the Metro into DC was extremely convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Value for the location"
Nice little hide-away, easy access with very good rates. Easy walk to King Street (15-20 min). Beautiful area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Good Location"
We were quite happy with this hotel. While King Street was not walkable for us, it was an easy drive to the center of Old Town. The free parking, shuttle to the Metro, and good breakfast made this a very nice stay. Staff was helpful and rooms were large. Bathrooms could use some updating but overall a great stay. We would use this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel,, good location"
I have stayed here three times in the last year and will probably stay here again. It's close to DCA and Old Town and the rooms are quiet. There is a supermarket a blovk away.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Threw key and no say hello"
Very supprised because just say "last name" and threw my room key. What I did wrong there? Room and cleaning was fare. But how they can threw key? Is it hotel?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant surprise in Alexandria"
My family and I were traveling to see a few baseball games in a few cities and needed to find affordable lodging in Washington DC. Due to the summer vacation season most DC hotels were booked and expensive so we booked the Best Western in Alexandria, VA. Home baked cookies met us on arrival at the front desk as well as a welcoming staff. Our room was […] neat, clean and comfortable. Most local hotels in DC only offer only double beds which was disappointing but we made due. The delicious breakfast was included in the price of the room and had many diet options. Coffee and lemon water were available in the lobby all day. The hotel shuttle to the Metro allowed us to park the car (free parking!) and travel into DC everyday. The shuttle driver Jeremiah was wonderful. We felt as if we had toured Alexandria as he was dropping off other guests on our way to the Metro station. The shuttle will also pick you up (during scheduled hours) if you call them. The housekeeping and dining staff were also friendly and helpful. The hotel is small so you see the same guests at breakfast and on the shuttles during your stay. King Street is within walking distance if you like to walk. The Food Giant is located one street away. The Tap Room (jumping at night) and the Haute Dog have good dining 2 blocks away. Murphy's Pub on King Street also has good food and pleasant service. We would stay here again now knowing that the area is quiet -away from the larger and busier hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Economical stay in DC area"
The BW Old Colony Inn is an old hotel. We stayed three nights. Our double room was small. The beds were small (used to queen size). The room did not include a microwave or refrigerator. It did have thermostatically controlled central air which was a plus. They were having issues with the ac in some units but ours worked fine. The Old Colony is a two […] story hotel with no elevator service to second floor. The included breakfast was ample but is in the basement so it felt dark and confined. It was also very warm in there! The hotel is about 0.67 miles from King St which is the main, fun street of Old Alexandria. The drive (on the weekend) into DC is easy and fast. The nearest Metro stop is about half a mile away. A bonus that is not common to DC area hotels: parking is free! This hotel is just a few blocks from the running/walking/biking Potomac Trail. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were disappointed! The first room had no working A/C, the second would not shut, there is no elevator. We were initially told that they were booked up, but when problems arose with our room, they mysteriously found us new ones. Not very handicap accessible. Ceiling was cracked and needed repair.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was 87 degrees, no ac. Only help from front desk was yes it was hot. Ask about near by hotels, he gave us a phone number to call one never offered to try to find us a room. The number he gave us was incorrect. Had to find another place on a Saturday night in Old Town VA - not easy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Okay place for the price."
Older hotel with air conditioner problems. The first night the air didn't work at all. After they "fixed" it, the temperature wouldn't go below 75 degrees regardless of what you have it set on. Rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The price was affordable."
The room was small and the beds were small -- I would have preferred Queen beds instead of double beds. The breakfast was not the best -- the eggs did not taste very good and the bacon and sausage were very greasy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Booked but never got to stay there... A pattern?!"
DOWNSIDE: I booked this hotel precisely because of its proximity to Reagan Airport, and because it has a complementary shuttle service. When I arrived at the Airport and called them for the shuttle pickup, they told me that the shuttle was done for the day, so I will have to take a taxi. I arrived at the hotel some 20 minutes later to be told that they […] overbooked the hotel, and I would have to go to another hotel. I told them that I had already spent my budget (that I NEVER budgeted!) on the cab. UPSIDE: The receptionist made a few phone calls, called me a cab, gave them the address of the other hotel they were handing me over, and gave me money for the cab. All in all, this was fair and courteous. The other hotel treated me right, so I have nothing bad to say about the chain or the staff, only about the crappiness of this particular hotel's logistics and overbooking.
