This was our 2015 Spring Break trip for my 15yo son and myself. Based on a limited budget, it was not the easiest task to find something that would not take all our funds before we even reached the city. I had read numerous reviews from several sites and the Econo Lodge seemed the perfect fit for our needs. It...

My family of four stayed here in March 2015 in a room with two double beds. We chose Econo Lodge Metro based on its cost and proximity to the Metro train station. The walk to the train station is a well-lit bike path or a residential neighborhood, your choice. The walk from our room to the train was 11 minutes....

If this hotel were a rental car, it would be a no-frills compact that does its job well. I came to DC for 4 days' of meetings in different parts of DC. I work for a charity and need to keep costs down while being sure that I can do good work during the day. This place was very good...

Now, this is tough review. I had read lots of reviews before choosing this hotel, and then had my own experience. And the best way to summarize it is to say: Great Budget Hotel, but acknowledge some facts and keep your expectations real! Then you will not get dissapointed. This is a great hotel with many pros: It has a...

Simple with its' style and furniture.Nothing fancy but still you get whatever you need. Staff was nice and helpful. Restaurants at outside helped a lot. You need to walk to metro stations for almost 15 mins. Economic for short business trips.

A three level older style motel located approx 600 metres along bike path from East Falls Church Metro station making it easy to commute into central Washington.

This is a basic hotel with a clean, basic room. There is no coffee maker in the room but there is a microwave & refrigerator. The room was large enough and not too tiny. Staff was very friendly.
