    Historical Traveler Reviews Americana Hotel Arlington

    Family Owned

    from

    This is an excellent value. I stayed here on business but, would stay for vacation. They are close to the Metro and many restaurants. The staff is very helpful and very nice. The breakfast was more than expected for the price of the room. The hotel is an older one but, the rooms are extremely clean with plenty of towels. A+++

    Great value for the price

    from

    This is a great place to stay if you want to see Washington DC without breaking your budget. My room was quite large and clean, although the furniture and carpet were rather worn. (They clearly buy used furniture from large hotel chains.) The AC was old and loud, but worked quite well, and there was a little fridge. There is plenty of free parking, and there are endless Dunkin Donuts for breakfast. The motel is a block from the Metro stop (underneath the Marriot), and there are plenty of restaurants within driving distance. I did not find the staff particularly friendly or helpful, although the maids did a good job each day. It is a great place for the money, but don't expect a four star hotel...

    Excellent value

    from

    We chose this hotel for the price, and from reading the other reviews. It was a very easy hotel to find, easy access to highway and the metro only a block away made it very convenient. Breakfast was very nice, bagels, toast muffins etc and coffee all day too! I agree with the other reviewers re cleanliness, we stayed in a four star hotel this same vacation, and their standards certainly didn't come up to those of the Americana. Will certainly stay there again.

    Good value for the price

    from

    We chose this hotel mainly for the free breakfast and on-site parking, both were nice. The hotel facilities were fairly clean. However, there were things like no fan in bathroom, old toilet, as well as that shampoo in bathroom has not been refilled/replaced for days (we tipped every day.) People there were helpful, but not as friendly as other reviewers mentioned. Maybe because they were too busy and too tired to greet some of the guests.

    Clean and Comfortable

    from

    My husband and I stayed here three nights with our two children and my parents. We all agreed that our rooms were the cleanest we'd seen in a long time. It's an older hotel, but a very pleasant and reasonably priced place to stay.

    Good Value

    from

    My son and I had a pleasant three day stay in March for about $73/night. Free parking is an added bonus. It is Two blocks to Marriot Crystal Gateway entrance to metro, and a shuttle runs every 1/2 hour in the morning. No views and not easy to walk to. Nice continental breakfast of donuts, muffins, bagels, english muffins, cream cheese, cocoa, tea, coffee, oj. NY times and Washington post in lobby. I would stay there again.

    A great place to stay

    from

    The Americana is a great place to stay if you are looking for a clean, comfortable room. It is an older motel but it was super clean. The staff was very nice and the donuts and bagels were good. It was also in a great location only a block or so away from the metro. It is in a nice, safe neighborhood within walking distance to a really big, cool mall. They had a free shuttle and were extremly helpful giving directions to us "small town" people who had never been on a subway before. Its a great place to stay and is very affordable. I highly recommend it. I will stay there again.

    Negative reviewers, are you SURE you have the right hotel?

    from

    I and my husband have stayed at the Americana several times. While I wouldn't call it "high tone", it offers clean rooms, a friendly staff, and a handy location to National Airport, Metro, and many major thoroughfares (Rte. 1, I-95/395, the GW Parkway, etc.). It is a block away from two nice malls (Pentagon Center and The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City), and two blocks away from a third new plaza. There are also lots of fun ethinc restaurants in the area. The only reason I gave it only 4 stars is that it is not a "full service" hotel. If you require more than a clean, safe place to stay with basic amenities, you should go elsewhere. BTW, I think that whoever it was who said the place offered an ocean view but had silverfish might have mistaken this hotel for a different one, as there is no ocean to view in Arlington, VA.

    Clean and very accomadating people

    from

    The hotel was very clean and the people were very helpful with dining arrangements and the free shuttle to take and pick you up. What ever questions you might have about the city they helped. The continentle breakfast was much better then what I had at more expensive hotels,so I will go back when I visit D C again.

    Great hotel

    from

    This was a very nice hotel! They staff was very friendly and helpful, they had a small morning breakfast of doughnuts, coffee and juice! Don't expect a upper class hotel with the works but this was a nice cheap hotel just 2 blocks way from a huge mall and the subway! Reccomend to everyone!

    So, Super Shuttle picked me up & delivered me to the airport. It's a strange feeling to pull up to the departures and there isn't one car, one person... Nothing. I headed to the counter, no one there either, and begin to use the self service kiosk. After only a few steps, it says I need assistance. I do? I feel like everything is going just fine and who exactly is going to assist me? A woman comes by, no AA emblem on her ...

    While Will was immersed in war, I raced through so I could see something way more interesting - the collection of First Lady dresses. I had a great time here checking out all kinds of beautiful gowns through the years. At least they were REAL dresses and not just a bunch of photos of dresses.

    We cut our visit short as we had to get back to the children and check out of the ...

    Today has been amazing so far! To start off we walked around Arlington Cemetery, which was much bigger than I had imagined. In total, it is 660 acres. We saw the Changing of the Guards and walked to John F. Kennedy's grave. I'm glad we came this time of the year because the trees are gorgeous. Then we took the metro and did some walking until we came to the White House. There is some awesome architecture here, which makes ...

    ... flashed past very fast and straight into the White House. Washington experience complete!

    By the time we were almost at the Lincoln Memorial we were all exhausted and malnourished and were gratified to spy a cafe just nearby. After grabbing supplies we went to sit outside. Mark's chair had other ideas and completely disintegrated causing an embarrassing spectacle and one ripped RM Williams shirt.
