"Great breakfast and great room"

5
03/12/2018

We checked in on a Monday and out on Wednesday and the evening clerk was very nice and friendly. There was not many guests and it was very quiet. There was construction in the lot beside the hotel but you hardly noticed it. The room was large with a king bed which was very comfortable; plenty of hot water also. The breakfast bar was well stocked with anything you could imagine. The second morning was a little different however, many of the containers were almost empty and the staff was not refilling anything. I noticed that one of the guests had to get her assist with more waffle batter - instead of putting more out she took the container and shook it to get just a little more out - still not enough for that guests. The counters were a little messy and had not been cleaned up when we came down around 8:30/9:00. The staff was in the storage room using her cell phone instead of assisting the guests. We were well pleased with the stay and again think the night clerk (did not get his name) was really great! Would definitely stay here again.

"Auto Train"

Lovely, inexpensive hotel to stay when taking the auto train the following day. Clean rooms, with just the necessary amenities, friendly employees, very nice hot breakfast and close by to restaurants. Specially the Peruvian Chicken for dinner.

"Party Hotel! Avoid if You Want to Sleep!"

1
12/11/2018

Worst night ever. All the renovations in the world won't help if there are no quiet hours policy, the walls lack soundproofing, the doors have gaps along edges, and the staff aren't committed to keeping things quiet. The party noise started around 8. By 11:30, we were more than ready for it to stop. Although management acted when I complained and shut down the party, they called MY room when the remaining people called an ambulance for alcohol poisoning victim, accusing me of calling authorities about the noise. No, it is your guests saving the life of one of the partiers. She hung up on me. Three hours later, presumably after the bars closed, she let the partiers back in. My family was startled awake by loud music and voices again. I called to complain again and management did ask them to leave but that took another hour. We had to arise for our schedule two hours later, making this a very short night and a very long day following. I came to rest and prepare for a long drive. That didn't happen. Clearly avoid this hotel if you are coming to sleep. If you are looking for a place to party, this is your venue.

"Good Value"

11/11/2018

We were planning to spend a full day visiting Mount Vernon and arrived late in the afternoon without reservations. When we inquired at Best Western – Mount Vernon they informed us that all we had to do was turn at the light and go straight. Only five minutes from the hotel. We were pleased that the room was clean, large and bright. Many hotels have very little light and I feel like you can't see if the room is clean. The staff at the front desk was helpful. Comfortable beds and the room was large enough that we weren't bumping into each other. Breakfast was the standard fare and the dining area was nice and large. All this and Free Parking! A real perk in Washington D.C.

"Waste of money"

2
17/10/2018

Things wrong with the room. TV did not work, overwhelming smell of cleaning products in bathroom, shower handle came off in my hand while turning it on, air conditioner sounded like a truck. Went to front desk and complained and got the "deer in the headlight" look. I had to suggest to them that they switch our room. There responsed was that maintance people will be back at 6 and they can take a look at problems. I did not like that idea for a few reasons,and was finally given a room change. Spend the few extra dollars and stay at another hotel in the area. Never again!

"What a great location"

5
11/10/2018

Brilliant Location with easy access for trips to Washington Dc and all the surrounding areas Staff helpful and courteous from Check in to Check out Nothing too much trouble and Breakfast was good with a huge selection of options Parking was free and easy Close to good restaurants and shopping We will be back to stay again Ideal for families and business people

"best bang for your buck"

03/10/2018

This place was recently renovated, arrived for a late check-in, and was impressed with the inside. definitely will be coming back. there were no odors or people standing around. there was also a 24hour coffee station that was very convenient. everything was close by there was a Peruvian restaurant next door and the food was also very good. everything was conveniently close by so you didn't have to go far and drive, especially after a long day of driving.

"6 Night Stay in Mount Vernon"

4
29/09/2018

We used this hotel as a base to visit Washington DC and Alexandria and in hindsight it is a little far from both of these places. Upon check in we were greeted (I use this term loosely) by the most personality removed human being possible, who really did just go through the motions. Not welcoming at all. We went to our room and immediately called for maintenance as the air con had caused a nasty smell in the room. The maintenance guy came very quickly and was very polite, he cleaned the air con unit and after that we had no problems with smell in our room during our stay. The beds were comfy and the room was quiet, there was a safe in our room but it was broken, which the hotel knew about as they had a screwed a plate on it to hold the door closed. Breakfast was pretty standard style American breakfast, but the coffee machine really did give a really good cup of coffee! The free coffee in reception throughout the day and night was a nice touch and if I have to mention any one member of staff then the Asian (oriental) young man on reception was always very polite and friendly. Would I stay again? No, but it wasn't awful.

28/09/2018

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and I couldn't fault it, clean rooms, excellent staff, bed was comfy, breakfast was excellent. Only issue was school kids stayed same time and were very rude, waiting for pancake mix and expecting the staff to know what they were waiting for

"Great Price and Stay for Washington DC"

3
28/09/2018

Most of the area hotels in the Washington DC area are very expensive. Traveling from nearby Alexandria VA was the perfect site. It was about 19 miles and if left the hotel early in the morning, you could be in DC within a half hour. Using Parking Spot also saved money as well. The hotel is very average with the amenities that you would expect from a budget hotel. It was clean and the room was large. Parking was a challenge if the house was full. The breakfast in the morning was terrific with many choices for hot and cold food. If you are seeking a spot to rest your head while on business or pleasure close to DC, this hotel is recommended. Enjoy the sites and flavors in the metropolitan area. It is a great place to visit.

"Family trip"

5
19/09/2018

We stayed here for one night after going to Monticello, on our way to Mount Vernon. The lobby of the hotel was clean, and looked very nice. Our room was clean, looked to be newly redone, and plenty space for 3 of us. Breakfast buffet is held in the banquet room downstairs. It was laid out well and lots to choose from. Hotel is convenient to shopping and restaurants and right off the main highway.

"Great Spot close to Washington"

5
31/08/2018

Spent 3 nights at this gem. Very reasonably priced. Was looking for a spot close to Washington DC but handy to other points of interest. Located only minutes from George Washington's estate, chain restaurants just down the road and about 30 minutes in rush hour from the Capitol this hotel fit our needs perfectly. Spacious clean rooms, great breakfast, friendly staff. No complaints at all. There is a Peruvian chicken - Si Pollo - place right next door that sells the best charcoal cooked chicken we've ever had and it very reasonably priced. If you stay here and like chicken you must try it Will stay here again in a heartbeat

"Worth the extra mile!"

5
27/08/2018

This hotel is about a mile outside of old town Alexandria. But worth the ride. We required a handicapped room and were shown to huge clean and comfortable suite. But the breakfast is what set this stay apart. Homemade corned beef hash. Ham cut off the bone, various styles off eggs. Both pancakes and waffles went along with things found in other hotels. A coffee machine that rivaled Starbucks! Cappuccino, espresso,etc. excellent helpful staff...can't say enough about this stay!!

"Clean, renovated, roomy accommodations with up-to-date appliances, comfortable!"

5
23/08/2018

My wife and I have stayed in a few Best Westerns, and I have been disappointed (my wife is more forgiving!). But we chose this one because it was so close to Mount Vernon, and it was! Surprise!! This was a hotel almost completely made over with new floors and carpet, clean and comfortable rooms with up-to-date appliances, a great bathroom with a walk-in shower (I got a handicapped accessible room), and a very comfortable king bed. The breakfast offered a good variety and it was freshly prepared. Maybe the Best Western are worth booking in the future after all!

"Wear shoes to breakfast"

4
22/08/2018

The room was very nice and clean. The hotel staff friendly. We were surprised since it was in a sketchy part of town. The breakfast was very large and good. The only negative thing was that the floor in the breakfast area (the basement) was sticky and we had to wipe off the bottom of our shoes later.

"Room was nice."

4
06/08/2018

Nice, clean room, basic. Located on a busy road so not many restaurants within walking distance. If you want to get back in the car and take a short drive down the busy highway, you can find anything you need. Breakfast was ok - served in the basement. A short drive to Mt. Vernon which was nice. Water seemed to taste a little funny. Not many staff around to help - basically, two very nice people at the front desk.

"Good value; pleasant stay"

4
25/06/2018

The hotel was nice and our stay was pleasant. Everything was in working order. Seemed clean. The only negatives were the room was a little musty, possibly from the air conditioner. Also, there were some stains on the carpet in the hallway. Staff was pleasant. The breakfast exceeded our expectations for a complimentary breakfast - big selection and decent quality.

"Great customer service"

5
23/06/2018

My husband & I stayed here a few weeks ago & there was a mix-up with the two credit cards we used & honestly I thought we were out over $200 because we had a Mastercard that was a rebate & we told them to apply it & then we threw it away assuming it was empty & then realized they'd charged the full amount to the other Visa. I assumed we were out of luck but after writing a review & pointing this out the hotel contacted me almost immediately & resolved the matter refunding the money to our VIsa account. I am so appreciative, we spent enough on our trip & then thinking we'd blown that $$ was very upsetting so KUDOS to the management of this hotel!!!

"Very professional front desk, good housekeeping but strange breakfast area"

4
11/06/2018

We had a lovely two nights in this hotel. The front desk is very professional. Our room was clean and smelled nice. The bathroom had a very modern sink and toiletries. The breakfast area though was located a bit strange when you take the elevator to it. In the hall you get out the elevator the housemaids have their carts lined up, stocking them. A double door takes you to a little hall a the bottom of the stairs and then a double door brings you to a breakfast area. The breakfast was served on china plates and steel cutlery (a welcome change after a few weeks of plastic) and was good. The room itself had a couple of large tables for buses or larges parties and some family tables

"Nice place"

4
07/06/2018

Easy online booking. Clean, looks updated. Nice room. Comfy bed and Marriott like pillows. Great breakfast with ample hot foods and cold foods. Safe area with in walking distance to gas stations and fast food.

"Great hotel and service "

5
04/06/2018

This hotel is located outside of Washington DC but it's very easy go to downtown with metro service. You can left the car at parking and walk 10 min to metro station Great service and the room are clean and quite. Special thanks to Harry the “breakfast” men.

"A cut above similar budget hotels, great value"

4
31/05/2018

We found the Best Western great for a one-night stay, especially compared with other value hotel chains we stayed with during our trip. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was powerful, the toiletries seemed nicer than normal and the breakfast was of a very good standard. The location was very convenient for driving to Mount Vernon, plus there were lots of amenities nearby (supermarkets, restaurants, post office, etc.) Would definitely recommend for a short stay or those on a budget!

"Best Western stay"

3
21/05/2018

This hotel has an average room for us that had average cleanliness areas. The elevator area in the cracks that the shaft comes up had trash but was not a big problem. I would have liked to see it cleaner.

"Bargain"

4
03/05/2018

Nice place to stay. Clean rooms, comfortable bed. Room to walk around. no old hotel odor. Heat/air conditioning work. Fridge is nice for cold drinks. Needs a bit more lighting. Electrical outlets behind the nightstand are scary. WiFi works well. Staff are friendly and want to please. If you want a healthy breakfast, go out to eat.

"Good for overnight "

4
02/05/2018

Stayed here while on road trip for a night. Clean, comfortable and good breakfast. Totally fine for a night's stay. Fridge and microwave in room was nice. Not sure what there is to do around there, but not far from DC.

"great location to visit the Mt. Vernon area"

5
30/04/2018

Hotel was nice and clean. It was very convenient and an easy drive to Mt. Vernon and the surrounding area. There is a large variety of restaurants in the area to choose from. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Breakfast had a lot of great choices. The only reason I gave a 4 for the room is that it needs more light. Otherwise, it was perfect, and a great bargain.

"Northern VA during cold spring"

25/04/2018

Nicely Appointed, looked like it was recently updated. Close to Services: grocery/pharmacy, etc. Friendly staff. Breakfast well organized with waffle and pancake makers & easy instructions. Coffee/Espresso maker well appreciated. Coffee maker in the lobby very convenient.

"Great Location and wonderful Service staff"

5
25/04/2018

Great Location and wonderful Service staff. Nice size rooms with Refrigerator. Museum of the Bible is around the corner. Hotel is close to Metro and the Capital, Library of Congress, and Botanical Gardens.

"Do Not Use This Hotel"

1
21/04/2018

The property is run down and service was poor. I booked it for a group and many of my friends had a bad experience from broken heat/AC no towels in room. It is just an old building that needs to be bulldozed!

"Great Staff"

5
10/04/2018

The front desk staff are the perfect combination of friendly and efficient. And the remotes always have fresh batteries in them. The only problem here is making a left turn from route 1 into the parking lot, but that's not really the hotel's fault.

"Good for a night--maybe two"

4
10/04/2018

We chose this hotel as it was close to Mt Vernon (7 mins by car). Check in was friendly and quick. This hotel is fine for an overnight..the hotel lacks any signage pointing you in the right direction off the elevators. Room was clean and we had plenty of room for the two of us. The A/C-heater unit was rather noisy and the lighting in the room could be a bit better..but for one night we were just fine. Breakfast is your standard selections with eggs, ham and pancakes---

"Washington trip April 4-6"

3
07/04/2018

Hotel is conveniently located but not very well marked. Check in staff helpful and friendly, lobby clean. Location is in a slightly dodgy neighborhood but room was quiet. It seems like the hotel is being up-fit and some investment has been made, but it is a work in process: large nasty stain on the carpet in the room, leaky toilet, and some lamps in need of bulbs or repair. Price was not outrageous and it was about a 10 minute car ride to the nearest Metro stop. Would likely pay a little extra for more convenience and nicer amenities next time.

"OK for the money"

3
05/04/2018

When hotels get old and tired, they become Best Westerns. This Best Western gets high points for great front desk service, cleanliness, safety, and breakfast area. This Best Western gets low points for lack of cheerfulness, poor room lighting, doors that don't fit, and general tiredness. Examples of tiredness: all night plumbing drip, LOUD heat/ac system, extension cords plugged into wall behind the bed were smashed by the mattress. When I sat on the bed, the mattress moved causing various table lights to blink on and off. For $89 in Alexandria, it's a bargain. Holiday/Hampton/Fairmount are all nicer, but about twice the price. This is an OK stay if you are managing a tight budget.

"Great location"

4
04/04/2018

We stayed 2 nights while visiting DC and Mount Vernon. Very good location and price. Hotel clean and breakfast good. Only one ice machine on main level. Rooms abit dated and bring a power strip if you have the typical phones to plug in to recharge. Very close to grocery stores and restaurants.

"A good place to stay near Mt. Vernon"

4
26/03/2018

This hotel is a great value and is extremely convenient to Mt. Vernon. The outside of the building looks dated, but the interior appears to have been redone recently and is both clean and attractive. The complimentary breakfast was better than most.

"Relaxation"

5
20/03/2018

Had a relaxing, relaxing time away from the normal routine of everyday life. Was able to have relaxing and thoughtful thoughts. Enjoyed friendship, love, family, relationship advice from a wise and Noble man of integrity.

"Good service!"

28/02/2018

The hotel was really nice for the price and amazing place and a comfortable stay. The staff was really helpful and friendly, delicious breakfast ?????? ????? the location is perfect and the parking is big.

"Dropping off new Coast Guard member"

2
08/02/2018

We booked this hotel because we were bringing our daughter to report for duty with the Coast Guard. Best Western hotels are usually nice and affordable. After a 15 hour drive from St. Louis we arrived at the hotel a little after midnight. Exhausted and just wanting to sleep we checked in & entered our room which was the equivalent of a blast furnace. The heat was turned on full blast for who knows how long. We turned the heat off and A/C on immediately & left the door open for a bit to try letting some heat out. I asked the front desk attendant if they had a fan or if there was anything she could do about the heat (like move is to another room, adjust the price?). Her response was to "turn on the air conditioner". Glad she suggested that because I never would have thought of that. She said there was nothing to be done and did offer a pathetic "sorry". It was miserable sleeping in that room. Even the bedding was miserably hot. By morning it had cooled off somewhat but was still very warm. The breakfast was ok. It was served in a basement room that was also being used for storage. It appeared some construction was taking place. Overall I was not pleased and not what I expected from a Best Western as we have stayed in many and have always had great experiences. Not only was the room hot the bathroom floor was dirty and the tub looked as if it hadn't been cleaned. The lobby was dirty and the attendant was less than accommodating. All she wanted to do was play on the computer. I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. I tried calling the corporate office to complain and left a message but have heard nothing.

"A Nice Stay"

5
24/01/2018

I stayed at the Best Western on Richmond Highway in Alexandria, VA and it was my first time staying at a Best Western and I would recommend staying here.The hotel was easy to navigate and the hotel room was clean. The entire staff was very helpful and accommodating. The cleaning staff were nice and Quincy Milburn at the front desk, was very friendly and always greeted me with a smile and kind words. He was very helpful when it came to recommending places to eat and getting other information that I needed. There was complimentary breakfast and laundry machines on site (I used the machines several times while here with no issue). Overall it was a wonderful stay.

"Great stay!"

5
08/01/2018

Great staff! Great service! Great value! The breakfast was ample and tasty and the fitness center was well appointed. Laundry on site was helpful and the coffee is good and free all day! :) Hotel is clean throughout and the beds are comfortable.

"Nice and cozy"

28/12/2017

After driving non stop for about 12 hours me and my family needed a much needed break,as always Best Western has surpassed our expectations. Thanks a lot for having an updated app to log in and locate a hotel

"Wonderful Stay at BW in Alexandria"

27/11/2017

We have stayed at the Best Western on Richmond Highway in Alexandria, VA. This hotel is close to attractions, and DC, a very quiet, clean hotel. Staff very friendly and courteous. We stay at the Best Western every year for Thanksgiving we are down visiting family. The breakfast is wonderful, with all the usual breakfast items. Wonderful hotel and I highly recommend you stay here

"quiet location"

15/11/2017

Great hotel located a few minutes away from mount vernon. About 25 minute drive from Old Town alexandria. Huge breakfast area downstairs. Large renovated rooms. big bathrooms. Great price. Friendly staff. beautiful lobby area.

"Excellent hotel!"

13/11/2017

My entire stay was great, from the fast and easy check-in, to the variety of options at breakfast each morning. The hotel décor has been updated and it is warm and inviting! The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel is close to great shopping and sight- seeing events. I would love to stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay at a great price!

"Clean and Inexpensive"

4
13/11/2017

Good location to get to other areas near Alexandria/DC. Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast included in room rate is good and plentiful. Rates are very good. Property was relatively recently renovated and the lobby has the brightest lighting I have ever seen in a hotel. Lobby decor and lighting were very garish, cold and sterile. The managers are wonderful, but other front desk people are not as welcoming as the managers. Certainly worth a stay for the price and location.

"Mount Vernon Overnight"

05/11/2017

The hotel was very clean and the personnel all friendly. The room was comfortable with a firm mattress, good TV service, and adequate storage for our needs. The complimentary coffee (in the room and by the front desk), and the complimentary breakfast were quite good. The room was quiet and had good working heating and cooling.

"Not your typical Best Western"

3
05/11/2017

Hotel did not have the typical BW sign and there were several little things that bothered us that we usually don't have to deal with when staying at Best Western; hotel is a little tired looking; free breakfast but eggs, sausage and potatoes were awful - they need a better cook!

"My Stay"

3
30/10/2017

The Hotel as compared to other hotels is below average. They tried to be economical on every thing from soaps to shampoos.They need to change the old carpets. They need to make a better breakfast options.

"Bright and clean"

5
27/10/2017

Hotel was very bright and very clean. Our room offered a king size bed with a very comfortable mattress. Our room was spotless and did have a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee. Breakfast in the morning was quite good and offered a great deal of variety. I did not particularly like their coffee which was from a machine that you could get rev., decaf, hot chocolate. But then I'm quite particular about my coffee.

"Great stay"

5
24/10/2017

Hotel was a great stay for the price, and staff was great, rooms were great. Will defenatly stay again. Oh, can't forget the breakfast, it was great. I stayed for business, but great for couples and family stay.

"Just a hop, skip, and a jump away!"

4
23/10/2017

My wife and I took a vacation to Washington, D.C. and stayed at this Best Western in Alexandria, VA. We liked it because it was only a hop, skip, and a jump away. It is also really close to George Washington's Mt. Vernon, too, which we REALLY enjoyed visiting. This hotel is only about 15-20 mins from The Metro (the rail-train that goes into D.C.). Every day we would park at the Metro and ride it in. Some reviews say the Metro parking is always full, but we never had any trouble finding a parking spot. This hotel wasn't the best hotel we've stayed at, but for the price, the cleanliness, the friendliness of the staff, and the convenience to D.C., I would stay here again.

"Trip to MT. Vernon"

22/10/2017

Very nice hotel with an excellent breakfast and coffee machine. The location to Mt Vernon was perfect, only a short drive away. The hotel, though not fancy, was clean, neat and looked to be updating itself. The room rate was great compared to the other hotels in the area. We would definitely return to this location on our next visit.

"This hotel is always great"

5
22/10/2017

We stay at this hotel often when in DC area. Always clean and staff very nice. Good value for DC area. Metro is close by and feel very safe staying in this area. We also love the free breakfast with many items to choose from.

"Great hotel"

19/10/2017

This hotel is convenient to Northern va, Fort Belvoir, and D.C. The staff is very courteous, friendly, and helpful. The rooms are clean, and the Breakfast is very adequate. Also there is a fantastic Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken place right next door that's in my opinion very very good.

"This was a great experience"

19/10/2017

The room was excellent, breakfast was great and the staff was kind, considerate and courteous. I appreciate all of the help and attention my group was shown while we were there. We will definitely be using them again.

"Awesome"

13/10/2017

This hotel was kept up to par. The breakfast and stay was awesome... This Best Western have a very comfortable bed, plentiful breakfast, nice staff, and limited parking area. It only have one entrance and exit. Could use more outside lighting.

"Bring your bug spray!"

1
12/10/2017

When we arrived the motel looked very nice. It looked to be remodeled just recently. We booked a room for two nights and didn't have an issue until the second night. We returned to our room around 10 p.m. and we're very tired. My husband pulled the sheets back and saw roaches! One darted into my pillow and he caught it and smashed it. We started to look around and found a dead one behind the fridge and another climbing the wall. We found roach bait behind the refrigerator. It has obviously been a problem. My husband went down to the front desk and the woman working at the front desk(Terry), didn't seem surprised. She offered to move us to another room. When my husband came back to the room I was packing things up because I was just ready to leave. By now it was after midnight and we were supposed to be up early as I had an important meeting to go to. The front desk called our room and asked if we were going to move to the other room. I said I wasn't sure and that we might just leave. she said to me don't worry your will be given a discount for the night. Because it was so late in the night we decided to stay. However I was not able to sleep and did not make the meeting the next day. Add this to the fact that we had to bring home our things in black bags and probably wash everything in hot water for fear of transporting roaches to our own home we were very upset. We talked to the front desk in the morning and were offered a $27 discount. I called Best Western customer service and was only offered reward points for our stay. For what we went through and the nonchalant attitude about the entire incident we found their customer service appalling. I would never stay at another Best Western and I will never recommend it to anyone else.I have never written a bad review before either,however I am doing so now because I would hate for anyone to go through the same situation we did.

This hotel is a good place to stay for the money. It's clean and has a very friendly staff. The food was not bad. It's an average hotel, nothing special, but the friendliness of the staff made it better and the beds were comfortable.

Do not turn on your laptops in this hotel it is infested with multiple Trojans. These viruses ruined my stay. The Hotel has been refurbished and they were still had been finishing the final touches and place the artwork. The food was good and the severs kept it stocked till the close of service time. It was a good value if you do not use the internet service.

We stayed one night and our room was really large. The place is clean, the staff were friendly and informative BUT it doesn't look anything like their website pics. {lobby} we thought we were in the wrong place. But other than that no complaints. The breakfast was better than the average breakfast with grits and pancakes and included for the 89.oo a night so Id stay there again.

Came to the area for a birthday party and to tour the capital. Stayed for the weekend. Was happy with the overall experience and cleanliness. Breakfast was full and pretty good and each morning something different. The bed very comfortable too. A lot of shopping and restaurants close by as well.

"Decent for the price"

02/10/2017

My stay was okay. This is an older hotel, in need of upgrading. There were a number of broken or damaged items in the room, and a musty smell (that I admittedly got used to pretty quickly). The staff was extremely friendly, which made up for a lot. I will probably choose another hotel if I come back to the area, as there are a number of nearby choices. It was only average, even for the low cost.

This hotel has the two most important things I look for going for it. It is clean and very quiet. It's pretty convenient to Mount Vernon and there are several fast food restaurants nearby. There is a free shuttle to the metro as well.

Our room was spacious as well as the bath. The beds with their mounds of pillows were so apprecaited - we slept well. Complimentary breakfast included make your own waffle, fruit, muffins, cereals, eggs and bacon or ham - so delicious and well stocked.The breakfast room was large and we had access to the news on tv as well as US Today newspaper.

We enjoyed our stay at BW Ft. Belvoir. The was very friendly, helpful and courteous. The building was an older building but have been remodeled and updated. There was an Oder in the room that may have been from the new carpet. Our bed was very comfortable. The room was functional. The breakfast was always well stocked. We were there for 5 days. On the weekend, we had omlets to go with the sausage or bacon. There was biscuits and gravy some of the mornings. The usual waffles. Different breads, bagels, English muffins, muffins and small donuts to choose from. 5 kinds of dry cereal as well as cooked oatmeal. Coffee, milk, and 4 kinds of juices. Also fresh fruit and canned pineapple. There was plenty of room in the breakfast area.

21/08/2017

Hotel would not flush. I talked to the lady at the desk and was told that they would send someone. They did not. I used the restroom at a friend's home instead the next morning. On Sunday, after running outside, I desperately need to take a shower. I arrived at the hotel in the morning and my key car would NOT work. I went downstairs for a new key card. Back upstairs and again, it does NOT work. Again, I head back and the lady gives me a 3rd key card. The lady even walked with me upstairs to try the key card herself. The key card did NOT work. We head back downstairs for a 4th key card. We then head back upstairs and although initially the 4th key didn't work either, it eventually worked. it was very frustrating for the lady and I. I was sweating from my run, then had to wait around a good 15 minutes before I was given access back to my room. Also, the AC must of leak because the carpet was WET and I accidentally stepped on it with my socks as I was trying to open the curtains. I also told the lady this, but nothing was done about it. Very frustrating!

I recently stayed at this hotel. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. It was very close to George Washington's Mt. Vernon, which is why I chose it. The staff were very friendly. It is in an area which has lots of restaurants, gas and shopping if you need anything.

Good hotel and friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay while there and would recommend it to travelers. The area near the hotel is commercial with shops and restaurants nearby for your convenience. We always stay at Best Western when traveling and found this one to be nice.

"Old hotel, but not a bad place to stay for a few days."

06/08/2017

This is an older hotel. Our room had electrical outlets hanging out of the walls, but what do you expect for $100 a night? The breakfast buffet was good and the proximity to the Huntington Metro Station was nice (about 25 minutes). To sum it up, it wasn't a terrible hotel, but there are certainly nicer ones closer to DC that are better.

"A gem"

04/08/2017

Although the neighborhood was less than desirable, the hotel was superior. It is well kept and serves a 5-star breakfast with more choices than I have ever seen offered at a hotel breakfast. Each item was fresh and delicious. Don't miss the waffles!

28/07/2017

This hotel was spotlessly clean, although the bathroom showed a bit of wear around the edges (scuffed baseboards and the like). The breakfast was quite good (the waffles in particular were very good). I have no real complaints about this hotel, but I do have to say that having the manager (or the person I took to be the manager as I later saw him behind the front desk) standing just outside the front door in the morning smoking a cigarette doesn't exactly set the right tone.

"3.5 stars if I could"

19/07/2017

This is an example of not judging a book by its cover. The outside is a bit.....plain? Dated? But the inside is nicer. I loved their floors,loved! The carpet in the halls and room look newer. I didn't see any stains or fraying. Is this a 5 star hotel? Of course not! So for Best Western,I'm pleased. The room was chilly when we went in so we went straight to adjust it and ignored that the AC unit in the room was newer also. It worked well. In fact I got too cool and turned it down. After coming back from dinner I did notice that the room was a bit warmer and somewhat humid. Turning back up the AC fixed that issue. The room had a fridge and microwave and both were clean. The bed was neatly made and clean. I did notice that the curtains did not close. There was a sheer curtain covering the windows and a heavier curtain, but there was no bar to pull the curtains together to close. They were sort of there for decoration, almost. This would be unfavorable for someone who is easily affected by daylight but it did not bother me. I am a fan of long showers. Especially when I am away from home. During my shower the steam set of the smoke detector in my room. I waited for a phone call from the front office but there wasn't one. Also the tub was draining very slowly so while showering the water kept collecting. It was enough to cover the toes,not too deep. The hotel had many channels on the television and a LG television to watch them on. There was a guide on the tv stand. The check in staff were welcoming and helpful.

"Great Location/ Affordable"

We were in town for a wedding at Woodlawn. We were looking for a hotel that was affordable, and a good location. This was an excellent choice. Our rooms were clean and well laid out, although a little small. We had a great breakfast each morning, and the staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

"room not accessible, refused to cancel"

1
18/07/2017

On Saturday July 8th, I traveled to Alexandria for the memorial service for both my parents. I had reserved a handicapped accessible room at the Best Western Mt Vernon. I found this room on Booking.com, and booked it because it was the only room in the area listed as having a roll-on shower. I then checked the room on the Best Western website. At this time I did not realize that the Best Western Mt Vernon would feel no concern or responsibility for customer satisfaction for bookings made through Booking.com, and certainly no concern for their disabled guests. We called down to the desk when we discovered that the shower had a 3 inch lip, and not only could not be rolled into, it was also too narrow for a shower chair. As soon as we said, "We booked a handicapped accessible room," the clerk went into a long tirade about how it was not accessible, and it was Booking.com's fault for listing it that way. The exact same description of this room was also on the Best Western Mt Vernon's own site. The bed was also 5 inches higher than my power wheelchair, and I had a very scary time getting into it. When I asked the clerk at the front desk the next morning how they could sell this room as handicapped accessible, with a roll in shower, she responded " I don't know," without looking up. The clerk wouldn't even let me cancel the next night's booking. She said I had to go through Booking.com, and wouldn't even record that I was leaving the hotel. Booking.com has no place to indicate that I needed to cancel because the room was not as described. I finally found a phone number, but eventually gave up hope of ever reaching a human at the other end. Then I found that it was Best Western who charged my card, not Booking.com If nothing else, I feel obligated to warn other disabled potential guests and anyone who is concerned about fair treatment for the disabled, to avoid the Best Western Mt Vernon, and to avoid booking through Booking.com. I spent the next night at a Hampton Inn and all was as it should be.

We visited Washington DC every single day. The hotel is about six miles from two different metro stations. This BW hotel had extremely helpful staff and our room was clean and the breakfast offered many good choices. There were multiple restaurants in the area and there was a nice shopping mall less than 10 miles away. We would definitely stay at this hotel again when we come back to visit Washington DC.

stayed at Mount Vernon Hotel, while visiting family and touring Washington DC. The hotel was great. Service, breakfast. Parking, or getting to it, had a bottleneck right in front where people checking in would park their cars. It was a little further south of the freeway than we expected. Suggest looking at Google Maps before heading out. Also click the traffic option on GM; it can be pretty insane at certain times of the day. Best to avoid it. Major Big Box stores: Walmart, Target... also a Home Depot and Lowe's.

Our three day stay at the Best Western Hotel, Mount Vernon, was outstanding! Exemplary service starting with the kind assistance of Stacy, one of the front desk employees; to the efficient and friendly maintenance man (to fix a toilet issue); to the accommodating breakfast staff; all the way through check out. Stacy was extraordinarily helpful during the reservation process and thereafter when he made a special accommodation to allow us to check in early in order to avoid leaving our bags in the trunk of the car for the day while touring DC. Thank you for a wonderful experience! Joanie W

Fantastic restaurant around the corner, El Paso. Easy walk over there and amazing authentic Mexican food. (Easier to walk than drive to restaurant) Breakfast was pretty good and busy, but coffee was terrible. Biggest complaint, only instant coffee available....horrible. Overall, I would stay there again.

Hotel is conveniently located with restaurants, stores and car rental facilities around. Front desk staff is very friendly and efficient (especially Stacie). Guest rooms are clean, however, guest rooms and exercise room will definitely benefit from an upgrade. Daily breakfast is served which is a plus, but there are no healthy options available. A good place to stay if on a budget.

We used this location for our daily trips into DC. Clean comfortable with a pleasant staff and a complete breakfast. Couldn't ask for more at the price. Will stay again. Some construction /remodeling was taking place, and some guest smoked outside the door. Other than that, I would recommend this place.

19/06/2017

Basic hotel, but since the location is good (well off the road, so quiet, and ready access to DC, Alexandria and Interstate 495/95) and it has just been renovated, it is an exceptional value for an economy class hotel. Breakfast was above average in quantity, quality and selection.

11/06/2017

We stayed at this average Best Western facility for 3 nights in late May 2017. However, we arrived on a rainy evening and were surprised that a hotel of this size did not have a porte cochere at the front door and left us discharging passengers and luggage in the rain The lobby was a bit barren and lacking in warmth. The friendliness of the front desk staff was mixed—two friendly and one perfunctory. The latter indicated that there were no other entrances to the hotel (there were at least two others) and also that we would need to drive about 20 minutes to find decent food, whereas there were three restaurants within a short walking distance, one excellent and two good. When we entered the room, we found construction dirt in the bathtub and on the bathroom floor. One of the front desk staff promptly and graciously cleaned these areas. Otherwise, the room itself was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was typical with plenty of seating space.

The customer service was good and the staff was very friendly. However, the rooms could be cleaner, make sure windows are closed and locked (the window in the room was open and not locked), light bulbs were burnt out, some switches did not work for lights or vents, vents did not work for the bathroom, no TV remote in the room. I must say the breakfast was good and there were a decent amount of choices.

Typical Best Western. Room was nice and free breakfast was the best of the automated I have seen. Area is very noisy but any lodging in that area would come with highway noise. Trash collection the morning we were there was at 6am and very loud. Staff was very nice. This place is open 24 hours for checking in late at night. Since we arrived at 11pm this was great.

The place is a bit of a dump (though apparently they are working on the appearance) and a large group of bikers (Harley-types) were partying outside under our room window. But we've stayed in worse in the DC area, and it's a quick drive to Mount Vernon (which is superb).

12/05/2017

The only thing keeping me from giving an excellent rating is the remodeling that was taking place during our stay. Don't let this keep you from staying here because based on our room and the quality of the staff, ALL the staff, it will deserve an excellent rating once the remodeling is complete. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The location is convenient to Mount Vernon and Alexandria, and if you choose, Washington D.C. If you go in the next few weeks be aware there is a lot of road construction taking place on US-1, not the motels fault, which made it difficult to get there. The breakfast is very good and has enough variety to satisfy just about everyone. There were several school groups there on field trips and when they all hit the breakfast area at the same time it was interesting to say the least. The ladies working that area were great. They made sure the food never ran out and watching them around 75 to 100 5th and 6th graders was amazing. I would stay there again if for no other reason than the kindness and courtesy, not to mention the patience, these ladies showed.

This is a conveniently located hotel with an outstanding staff and clean neat rooms with good beds. The hotel is undergoing a renovation (5/17) and it is not complete, but over all the hotel was clean and bright. It has a very good coffee machine in the lobby with multiple options. One of the best things at this hotel is the very helpful and friendly staff. We enjoyed interacting with Stacy at the front desk. Ask him a question and he will get the answer. We enjoyed our stay.

"Very basic hotel, gym needs work..."

05/05/2017

Stayed at this hotel for business nearby. The hotel itself is basic but gives good bang for your buck. The only gripe that I had with the hotel is that the gym is really outdated and needs work, not to mention it is hidden in the basement. When running on the treadmill, the belt stopped for a split second and I almost injured myself. I believe this was just due to the treadmill being so old, similar to all of the equipment in the gym. Other than that, no real complaints from my end. If you are just looking for a place to crash, this hotel will do the trick.

This hotel is located south of Old Town by car 20 minutes. It is in an area that is developing and there are ample services in the surrounding strip malls. Large free parking lot. This was one of the cleanest BW's we've visited. The King Room was very comfortable and appeared to have been recently recarpeted and painted. It was 90 degrees one day and the air conditioner kept us comfortable all night. It's quite close to Mount Vernon and several nature preserves. The breakfast was only fair- not really many choices, but enough to get started for a day of sight seeing. We stayed for three nights- all quiet and restful.

I was in DC on Business for eight days and hotels in the Capitol were not available for that length of time, so I looked outside of the city looking for something near by and found this location online. The travel into the Capitol was easier than I had expected and using my GPS which finds the best route according to the traffic. Each day I used one of the many different routes into the city and the travel was easy. I enjoyed my stay surprisingly.

the hotel was being remodeled. We were not inconvenienced by the remodeling . Our room was just remodeled it was a nice size room clean with comfy beds. The hot breakfast was good .Eggs were a bit to buttery. The hotel was close enough to the interstate with plenty of restaurant and store in the area. Its about half hour from Washington dc depending on traffic. My suggestion find nearest metro rail save yourself the stress! I would have given it five stars but the clerk when checking in advised my sister that if she steal anything there's a 25.00 charge added to bill. Not exactly a nice Welcome to the hotel! I've stayed at many hotels never heard that before. I would stay there again.

"Would definitely stay here again."

The hotel is undergoing renovation and our view from our room was of the back parking lot, a construction dumpster, and construction debris. But this is of course temporary and did not interfere with our overall good experience here. Friendly staff, a great location, and excellent value.

Stayed 5 days. Didn't spend a lot of time in the room. Good value for the money. Under renovation so lots of little annoyances. Nice staff. Within 6 miles of a Metro Station. Inconsistent service.Good breakfast (but better if they offered water).

"One of worst Best Western hotels"

03/04/2017

The first issue was out room wasn't ready ... At 8:15 pm!!! My mom requires a roll-in shower, we booked a week in advance - even knew the room number because there are only two rooms with roll-in showers - but when we went to check in, Stacey told us the room hadn't been cleaned that day! If you know a room is booked, how does it not get cleaned? Stacey let us look at a normal room so Mom could check the height of the tub to see if she could lift her leg over the side. Good thing she could, so we moved rooms. Next morning we talked to the general manager, who thought we had looked at the room and said it wasn't clean. We told her that wasn't correct, but still only got comped one night. We left the hotel at 11a.m. and didn't return until 4:40 p.m. only to find the rooms not cleaned! Beds not made, trash not removed ... But the dirty towels had been taken .. Without being replaced. Then there was the green mold under the shower faucet. Will not stay here again, and makes me wonder about other Best Western hotels.

"Stacey makes you feel at home"

From the time we walked in the front door until the time we left, Stacey welcomed us and did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable. He suggested places to eat, and gave us pin point directions to next venue. After we checked in, Stacey would call us by name and wished us pleasant journeys when we left. The hotel was clean, quiet, and the breakfast was very enjoyable. You are also less than 10 minutes from Mt. Vernon.

Other than a few noisy neighbors, this is the best hotel for the price. Good continental breakfast and friendly staff. The one I'm in has a kitchen and a king bed, though if you prefer respectful neighbors, ask for a room not on the main floor. Or seek resolution from the front desk.

We were greeted by a witch! (It was Halloween, after all!). Rooms were clean, as was the bathroom. We were close enough to the Auto-Train; got there with no problem. Bathroom was also clean (very important to me). Breakfast was a standard BW breakfast-very big room, lots of seats! When we checked out we mentioned we were travelling on the Auto-Train and Stacey gave us lots of tips! He worked on the train for 10 years! I will review the train as well, so look at that if you're going to FL with a car.

"OK for the price but becoming dated."

16/10/2016

We stayed here in 2013 or 2014. Decided to do so again this October 2016. The price is good and the included breakfast very good with lots of choice including biscuits and gravy, waffles, corn beef hash, and potatoes. The place is becoming a bit dated. Musty smell when we entered our king room which later dissipated. The room doors are loud when closing and we were awakened a couple of times with people coming and going. There was light from the hallway showing around the door. Service was good and check in very quick as we pre-booked. Stayed three nights. Parking and wifi free. There were no problems. The total was $226 for three nights. Best price in the area and about 7 miles from old town Alexandria. Numerous restaurants in the immediate vicinity. If remodeled we would stay again.

"Great place to stay, very economical"

11/10/2016

Would not say no frills but had added value. Room was kinda basic but clean, flat screen, plenty of channels, micro, fridge and a REALLY comfy bed. Brekky OK (free), basic but re-stocked regularly. Within walking distance (like minutes) McD's, Subway, Dominos but first and foremost you HAVE TO TRY the Peruvian chicken spot right next door to the right when you walk out of the hotel...EXCEPTIONAL taste that makes you forget about the simplicity of the restaurant itself and it if very affordable as well (called El Pollo or something like that). Location for shopping is great if you have a car. Plenty of stores nearby (including SafeWay, Walmart, Target, etc and a few malls). Metro to get into DC is about a 15-20 min drive depending which station you prefer. The hotel was quiet, safe and plenty of well lit parking. One BIG suggestion for the hotel. Add some benches and ashtrays outside for us smokers (even by the front corners of the building, away from the entrance or in that little grassy area opposite of the entrance, by the shuttle bus) and one on either side of the entry for those that just want to sit outside resting after a long day of sightseeing. There is NOWHERE to sit outside currently and it would not cost much to do this upgrade! Overall, I'd give the hotel 4 out of 5 based on it's affordability. They lost 1/2 star for no benches (see above) and another 1/2 for no restaurant/bar on site. Keep in mind, I have stayed in many 5+ star hotels before and am rating based on 'bang-for-the-buck'. If and when I come back to the area (quite a few things I did not have time to do/see), I leave a note to front desk...fluff up my pillows 'cause I'll be back!

Spent Saturday night with three girlfriends for a Girl's weekend. We had connecting rooms. The desk clerk greeted us with a hearty welcome every time we entered the lobby. There was a problem with the lock on one connecting door but the maintenance man arrived promptly and made the repair. The rooms were basic and clean. The bathroom was large with good water pressure. The ac worked well. One of the rooms was missing pictures on the wall.The hot breakfast buffet was nicely done with fluffy biscuits, sausage gravy, link sausage, yummy scrambled eggs, potatoes, "make your own waffles" with all the toppings and add ins, pastries, breads, cereals, hb eggs, yogurt, fruit, juices, etc. (everything one could want for breakfast).

Located close to Mount Vernon and Alexandria. I would stay here again if I am ever brought back to this region.

We checked into this hotel about 5:30 pm. Check in was quick and easy, the clerk was friendly and helpful. The rate for our stay was about $123. Our room, 135, had all new furnishings except for the beds. The beds sagged about 3 inches in the middle. We woke up the next morning with sore bodies. A couple of good things about our room: it was off the street so we didn't hear noise and the water pressure in the shower was great. Breakfast the next morning was a disappointment - microwaved fake scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy and potatoes, NO meat at all. We'll avoid this hotel if we're in the area again.

This was very helpful in planning our trip. Looking forward to our stay.

20/07/2016

Thank goodness we only stayed here 1 night. Upon opening the door to our room we all smelled the musky odor. We should have gone back to the front desk to request a different room. Our mistake. The bathroom had what appeared to be mold in the shower and towards the ceiling. It was late so we hit the sack. I had to put a towel and washcloth over my pillow because of the smell. Needless to say none of us sleep great. The hotel was otherwise fine. Again our mistake for not telling the front desk about the problem. Check your room before unpacking!!

17/07/2016

When another hotel in the area didn't actually make my reservation I ended up at this Best Western as it was the only hotel in the area with vacancies. The overall appearance of the hotel was somewhat drab and dingy, it felt dirty but that may have just been the dim lighting as there no bad smells. My room was nice, nothing special but everything was clean and there were plenty of cable channels on TV. Free internet is provided, but it was so slow it may be better to not have it. The only off bit in the room was the rod for the shower curtain appeared to have been broken off and refastened, but at an angle so the curtain would slide to the center of the rod and allow water to pour out on the bathroom floor while the shower was running. There was a free coffee machine in the lobby, easy to grab a cup on the way by. The free breakfast was also better than expected. More than a few choices with some healthier options than what I normally see.

Good rate; below average hotel. Dirty and overcrowded -- not a pleasant experience. Used by local contractors during construction, the parking lot was filled with large work vehicles that took up all the best spots. The only alternative was to park in the dark back near the dumpsters with dining raccoons -- creepy! The refrigerator in my room had enough dust on top to write my name. Outdated and old.

The BW Mt. Vernon is a great place to stay if visiting Mt. Vernon, like we did. It is under 10 minutes from Mt. Vernon. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is plentiful and quite good. The beds are very comfortable. The staff are friendly and genuinely interested in helping you. Just an FYI - there are no restaurants beyond the type of a Subway or or McDonald's within walking distance. There is a nice enough Chinese place, called Peking Duck, that has decent food and a dinner with cocktails about a mile down the road. That's it. If you're there primarily to see Mt. Vernon, I highly recommend this BW. There is a Peruvian place next store with delicious roasted chicken and sides that you can take out if you like.

I was in Alexandria, Va. for the Landmark Advanced class. I booked a room (and yes the cheapest I could find) for the night of June 23rd. When I arrived I found out you get what you pay for. I'll save the rest of that story for the review I am going to write about them. But to make a long story short there was no way I was going to stay there. So I find myself without lodging. By luck just down the road was the Best Western. When I arrived I was greeted by Martha at the front desk. She understand my dilemma and put my worries to rest. She gave me a wonderful room at a very good rate (that included a great buffet breakfast). Her spirit and professionalism was incredible and rare. Thank you Martha for all of your help and for caring. You turned what was becoming an awful day into a great one.

20/06/2016

My experience with this place fell short before it even started. I called with a question about transportation for the area.(7:00am on 6/16/16) And this is how the conversation went. The person that answers the phone mumbles something, not even sure what he was saying. I said excuse me. He mumbles his greeting (???) again. I then say excuse me but I didn't catch your name. Then all of a sudden he gets his voice and snaps at me and says THAT'S BECAUSE I DIDN'T GIVE IT TO YOU!!! So I replied and said, "Well, to whomever I'm speaking to, good morning. I did have a question about your hotel that I needed to book for 6/20/16, but you are very rude, and I will take my business elsewhere. Then I hung up and called another place to stay. So I'm writing this review in a room at your competition. I'll be here for the week, let me know if you can use someone to teach a class in phone etiquette. To those people looking for a place to stay, in my opinion if they're snapping at you over the phone you can only imagine what they would be like in person!!! I choose to go elsewhere.

For the price (in the area...) it was not a bad place to stay, however, it could use a serious upgrade. The room was decent...the staff exceptionally friendly...typical free buffet/waffle maker.

The hotel is just okay. It seems all the hotels in the area are asking about this price or more, so they can get away with overcharging. The computer and printer in the lobby are nice. The lounge chair in the room is nice. The breakfast is okay. The bathroom is old & needs a facelift. There's rust on the ceiling, and under the sink has weird stains that I can't identify. I would try one of the other hotels next time we're in the area.

I'm not certain why, but this Best Western was rated 2 stars when I went searching. We decided to stay regardless since it was close to where we wanted to visit (close is good in the DC area) and it was only two nights. Room was spotless. Bed was the usual Best Western comfort (and the pillows were decent -- I always bring my own). The staff was friendly and efficient. The first night, there was a group of school girls in the rooms around us and I wasn't certain the hallway would ever be quiet. I called the desk. The very understanding and pleasant woman asked me to give them 10 minutes and if things hadn't settled, she would move us. Good.. They did quiet, we didn't move. Perfect. One of the best aspects was that the walls seemed soundproof. Once the "ladies" were in there rooms, we didn't hear a peep ... and I'm certain that the noise continued unabated for a considerable time. We will stay here again.

27/05/2016

This hotel is in a safe location and about a 15 minute drive to a metro station. The lobby and rooms were clean and fairly comfortable, although the hotel keeps the lobby and hallway areas very cold. I had requested a top floor room, but when I checked in, they gave me a second floor room instead. I asked if there was anything on the 4th floor, and he scanned the computer for two seconds before telling me no. I found out later this wasn't true at all. I had family members staying at the hotel who checked in after I did, and never requested the 4th floor, but got rooms up there anyway (they had the same room type I did). Unfortunately, the clerk just wasn't very helpful. Anyway, we stayed two nights and it was fine overall. The first night was surprisingly quiet, but the second night our neighbors were loud. Wi-fi connection was very good. The sheets on the bed are thin, so I would have liked a thicker blanket, but at least the bed and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast was okay on the first day, and better on the second. Like any hotel offering breakfast, they had plenty of carb-related foods to go around, but not much for protein. They only had eggs one day (which quickly ran out); thankfully they had both eggs and sausage the next day. The attendant was working hard to replenish the food and it looked difficult to me because of the large number of people having breakfast. Overall, I would stay here again. I was thinking of staying at a higher-priced hotel down the road, but it wouldn't have been worth the extra cost. This hotel is a pretty good value.

"Clean & Nice for an Overnight or Two"

07/05/2016

We chose this hotel over the Potomac Mills location because it was so near to Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighy House at Woodlawn, it had a fridge and microwave, and was close to DC for a play we were attending. We were not disappointed. It was very clean. The room has attractive appointments, including a nice arm chair, a wonderfully large fridge, a microwave, attractive art, and a very comfortable bed & pillows. We really liked that the rooms do not face the road so they are quiet. Breakfast is definitely better than the average hotel of this level...warm cooked items of good quality in addition to the usual carb-fest of pastries, cereal, bagels, waffles, etc.. There is a casual Peruvian Chicken restaurant next door that is delicious. The staff was friendly and appeared to be very hard working. Overall we were happy we had stayed here for the trip we had planned.

We really enjoyed our stay at your hotel. It was very convenient. I needed an early check in at 630am which no other hotel could do, and they were able to accommodate me with it. I will be staying here again.

While going up to see my brother and wife on several trips. He has passed from Agent Orange cancer. This hotel is the best in the area for comfort, cleanliness and staff. We used to go to other hotels, trying to save some money. This place is the best, will continue to stay when we are up there again.

This hotel is very close to Washington's home in Mt. Vernon. And is also close to the Metro stations to go into D.C. The room was very nice with large bathroom. Not fancy but clean and comfortable. It is on a busy street but very low noise level. Great large breakfast room downstairs with excellent free hot breakfast. The front desk staff was great with suggestions for restaurants and directions to metro stations and into D.C. The price was very reasonable, especially for the area.

The hotel is in a nice place and easy to get to. Plenty of shops/stores just encase you forgot something. I do not recommend the breakfast but to go out and enjoy one of the other local places. If I come back I will definitely consider staying here again. This place was close to Washington and the Cherry Blossoms were amazing to see. Well ok, so was the rest of Washington.

"Disappointment"

31/03/2016

Staff seems unprofessional. You can't understand them when they mumble their greeting when they answer the phone. When you complain, there's a defensive response but no apology. The rooms are VERY old. The person I traveled with said there was no hot water after one of us took a quick shower. The covers on the bed are very thin. When we went for the free breakfast, there's no meat (bacon or sausage) to go with eggs or waffles. They kept emphasizing free parking. What motel doesn't have free parking? I've been traveling my entire life. When I give my credit card info, I have NEVER been charged for the room before I even arrived. However, I do realize a hold can be put on my account. PLUS and additional $25 which I have to wait up to 5 business days before my account is credited?! Really? If I don't follow your rules, THEN you charge me, but not before. it was a very unpleasant experience overall. Maybe there'll be renovations soon and they'll get new management.

"How the Best Western Was One"

4
28/03/2016

Okay, there are basically two types of travelers. The first type likes opulence, pampering and AAAA, Diamond, super plus amenities. The second type expects a clean room and a cool bed to lay their heads. We all adjust these two expectations based on budget and reason for traveling. This property fits in to the clean room and cool bed end of the spectrum. The pluses that push it beyond mere bare bones are: Refrigerators in each room. Microwaves in each room. A full breakfast buffet offering a different egg product each day with potatoes biscuits and a meat product. Waffle maker. Above average coffee and a variety of pastry, breads, cereals. The rooms where clean. The staff was friendly. The beds where comfortable. My room was quiet. My only criticism is that the garbage was consistently over flowing in the lobby by the coffee maker. Not a good look. Not a sign of a caring, attentive staff which wasn't how I would categorize my personal interaction with the staff. The overflowing garbage was below them. Also, there was some obvious bad water damage in one of the bathrooms. There's a few properties close by and many in the area. I see no reason to visit any other property

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We will be sharing your comments with the staff. I agree, the Front Desk should have been more attentive to the coffee station and trash by it. We will improve on this!

"Nothing more than the basics"

24/03/2016

This place wasn't horrible, but wasn't exceptional. Pillows were hard...idk why that sticks out. Breakfast buffet could be better, but it'll do for a free breakfast. The staff were ok. There was nvr a sense of urgency with anything. The was a big coffee spill, and it stayed there for a good ten minutes before anyone got to it. This was while 80 kids were loading on to a bus. So the hallway was really busy. I told the front desk incase they didn't know, and they did they just didnt get around to it yet. Idk safety would've been my concern. I don't usually care about the ice machine, but the ppl I was with did. They only have one on the lower level. Some ppl saw that as super inconvenient. Not too bad, but not the best.

"Why I Stay @ Best Western Mt. Vernon"

19/03/2016

I found the accommodations to be most satisfactory & pleasant. Breakfast is included as part of the stay which is a nice add-on to have, it just makes things easier. This hotel is across the street from a shopping center with both a Family Dollar and a thrift store which makes for happy shopping. And, two doors down from the hotel is the city bus stop for a bus that travels into Olde Towne. The fare is $1.80, remember exact change; or, leave a tip as driver does not give change. It takes 30-40 min. for the bus to arrive at the end of the route which is @ the King St./Amtrak/Metro/Free King St. Trolley stop in Olde Towne. Using the bus does eliminate the need to find & pay for parking. During the week, the bus does run fairly frequently, no long waits. Also the Peruvian Chicken Restaurant-Take-Out place right next door to Best Western is a really good place to eat; also, not expensive.

"Excellent Value Hotel for Business or Pleasure"

16/03/2016

This is a busy hotel with business and site seeing travelers using the facility. Mount Vernon is very close to this hotel and as such many school trip buses use this facility. The hotel was quiet despite the children arriving late at night. Hotel rooms are clean, well designed and quiet. Bedding was above the norm for this type hotel and staff was very helpful. The breakfast was reasonable with only one critique of the equipment used to maintain the oatmeal being a bit out dated and not as hot as it should. The rest of the equipment kept the hot food hot.

Check in was fine but one of the receptionists was on training which slowed it down a little. Room was very comfortable as was the bed. Desk chair was faulty and would not stay at the right level. Bathroom, shower etc were fine. Room had a safe, fridge and microwave. We were heading south and it took a while to make the left turn and in the morning we headed north to avoid a long delay!! A Peruvian chicken restaurant next door and a McDonalds next to that were the closest eating options. Breakfast room was in the basement and a little hard to find. Not a huge selection but liked the chopped fruit, yogurt and raisin bran. Would stay her again.

This hotel offered us the best price, location and highest ratings of the hotels in our budget near Fort Belvoir. We found the facility to be clean and comfortable. It is also very convenient to many other area attractions such as Mount Vernon, the lovely and historic home of George Washington, the Franconia/ Springfield Metro station and picturesque town of Alexandria.

This is the second time we stayed at this inn to visit family. Knowing they had the best breakfast you could want last time and the great price we tried them again. Everything was great and the breakfast was super. We ate five breakfasts and they had something different each day. That is now our hotel when we can't stay with the son and daughter-in-law and grandkids. A hot tub would be great but then we would have to find time to use it.

This is one of the best hotels I my wife and I have stayed at. The room was extremely clean. Bed linens were clean no spots. Rug was very clean as well as the bathroom. The only complaint that I would have is the it took over three minutes for the hot water to get to the room. They should have a circulating pump installed on each floor. The breakfast bar had different items on different days. Plenty to eat standard hotel breakfast. Our room was on the front of hotel on second floor facing route one. Surprising the noise level of traffic was a ZERO. Great place

bwmtv, Front Office Manager at BEST WESTERN Mount Vernon/Ft. Belvoir, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your stay with us. I will pass the suggestion along to our management regarding your thoughts on the hot water. I do know we have new circulating pumps, sometimes when the hotel is busy it does take a couple minutes because hundreds are showering at the same time. But we always value ideas for ways to improve our service, thank you. We hope you'll visit with us again the next time you travel to the DC area.

For the price, good value. Hotel was very quite and clean and room was comfortable. 24 hour coffee/ tea and free breakfast in the morning. Only bad thing was the beverage vending machine needed to be filled, it was empty. Maid was efficient in stocking towels.

The staff had good customer service. The room was clean. The toilet leaked, it was reported but was not fixed while we stayed there. The breakfast was not very good. This hotel was still a good value compared to the cost of others in the area.

"Room was comfortable"

17/10/2015

Though the hotel building is rather dated and lacks charm (it is, after all, a simple motel building designed for the age of automobiles), the room was comfortable for a lone traveler. I appreciated having wi-fi and a comfortable chair to sit in. The only drawback was noise; it was very quiet during the night but come morning and the garbage trucks arrived just outside my window, then the food service truck (whose driver had a loud conversation with someone outside my window) and the room cleaning staff had loud conversations up and down the hallway. For the area, the AARP rate was very good.

"comfortable bed, but hotel outdated"

13/10/2015

The hotel acceptable. The bed was quite comfortable. But it is older & in need of refreshing. I have seen several reviews that said the hotel is not clean. That was generally not my experience - however, when something is older, it can seem dirty even when it isn't. It was mostly clean. There was a little mildew on the shower handle - but it was inside the plastic & could never have been removed - that's what I mean about when things are older. I requested a quiet room & was initially given a room right next to a fire door that banged - so they relocated me. Breakfast was OK - nothing to write home about, but fine.

We stopped in this Best Western on our way home from visiting friends in Western Maryland...we wanted to spend the night in Alexandria and had a great time. The room suited our needs and did not pay a tourist price for it. Having a leisurely breakfast before starting our day was perfect.

"Questionable!"

03/08/2015

Stayed two nights this past week. Location was great...very close to Mt. Vernon. However the hotel needs a serious remodel...dirty entrance; dirty halls; dirty elevator; dirty breakfast room (especially the metal trash container - looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks); ragged shower curtain. Just an overall appearance of being unclean. A/C unit was very loud...disrupted sleep...did not report to management. Staff was helpful.
