          Nothing fancy but very clean, friendly and convenient and the price was excellent.

          This is a nice facility for the discerning traveler. It has a nice team to keep its flag flying high! Alan, Genie, Louis, Steve, Randy, Patty... Form a nice team that gels well with the guests! Mr. Alan Patrick Spaulding is an asset to the Hotel! He is so friendly, nice, proactive and understands the needs of the guests even before they express them. The location is very fine for folks attending conferences at Gaylord. Being very near Huntington Metro, dc is in your reach within 20 minutes. Mr. Paul Blunt, the General Manager of the hotel is a personification of dedication, hard work, discipline, respect and courtesy all combined. He personally operates the shuttle to drop guests, with pleasure, at Huntington Metro! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay!

          The continental breakfast may have a little more variety and spread!

          The price was good given DC area rates. Staff was helpful and cheerful. Breakfast was better than expected. Bagels are always good. Bed was comfortable.

          The door stuck badly. It was noisy in the room, in part because a neighboring room's door squeaked loudly every time they opened and closed it. Time for some basic maintenance.

          We wanted affordable and safe and central to where we wanted to be and that is what we got. If you are looking for luxury this is not it, but I would stay here again

          Really, all I can come up with is lack of teaspoons.

          This hotel was dirty. The carpets had spots in it and looked like it hadn't been vacuumed. Sleeping in the bed was like being in a bowl. We had to ask for our sheets to be changed and even then they didn't smell clean. The last mornining was the worst. The boiler had failed the night before and there was no hot water to shower with.

        • Older travelers

          Staff was wonderful. The room was large & comfortable with 2 beds & sitting chair & desk. I set the air conditioner & it kept the room at that temp the whole time & I never heard it once. Nice bath room & the toilet had a seat cover so that I didn't drop my stuff in (thank you). Found extra pillows in the very spacious closet. My husband had a chair outside the door to sit on while he smoked. It is an older family run hotel & that's the way it made us feel. More like you were coming to visit family that checking in to a hotel. Great restaurant within walking distance & a bank next door. Very close to downtown Alexandria & not far from DC.

          Closet door didn't shut completely. Highway close so if you don't like traffic this might not be your best choice but it was fine once we were in the room.

          All of the staff here are extremely nice and helpful. The room was very clean with a modern bathroom. The motel is easy walking distance (~1/2 mile) from the metro rail station which takes you quickly into the heart of dc. We will definitely stay here next time we come into town, it was a great experience.

          Location great for travel on the metro into D.C., and easy access to interstate highway. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean facilities. Reasonable and affordable room rate.

          Very satisfied with our stay. We liked everything about BHA. We have stayed there in the past, and plan to stay there whenever we visit D.C.

          The staff was great, helpful and friendly

          They control the heat and air conditioning in all rooms. We requested air and were told that someone was too cold, so they turned it off. Also we were told no computer in the office, but they had a card in room stating there was wi fi. Also charged per day for a phone we never used. No hot tub, no pool. Hostess donuts for "breakfast"

          Free ride to the Metro stop less than a mile away (I also walked there sometimes). Warmth and attentiveness from staff.

          The people are nice, the internet is fast and easy to use and the cable has lots of channels. Location is good and easy to find. Smoking rooms are available and don't smell stuffy! I have had to stay in a lot of hotels in the last year and for me, the low price and the location was the best for what I needed. A place to relax a bit after a hard day and still be able to use the internet and smoke without the hassle of getting dressed and going outside to some "smoking" area. I will stay here the next time I am in town and need a place to stay.

          Street noise, other than that, can't beat the price.

        • Older travelers

          Staff was friendly, room was clean, WIFI access, good setup of room. Also, I originally asked for a smoking room but that was not noticed...when I requested smoking, staff was very accommodating.

          Even though they were very accommodating about giving us a smoking room, I shouldn't have had to remind them...it was indicated when I reserved the room in the first place.

          Cleaniness and tidiness of room and bathroom... It was just perfect.
