We stayed two nights here while visiting family in town and doing some sightseeing. We found this motel to be in a good location for what we were seeing. The staff was great and very helpful and the shuttle service was great, they drop us off at our nieces house. It was within the 3 mile limit they have. The breakfast was good and well stocked. They do need to replace the electrical plugs in the bathrooms, nothing will stay plugged in. Overall it is a good place to stay for the price.

This hotel only has 49 rooms which results in a quiet atmosphere. The staff is friendly and courteous and addresses any issues promptly. The shuttle service was very convenient. They do not allow tour buses to park on the property. When they do have visitors from tour buses the hotel stays quiet.

I picked this hotel on the advice of a coworker and was not disappointed. The shuttle was wonderful. Stops included the Airport for pickup and drop-off, the Metro station, and dinner each night. The hotel staff were friendly and professional. The room was simple, but clean. The beds and pillows were better than expected. The breakfast was nothing special, but it was clean and there was hot food as well. The coffee wasn't bad either. I'd strongly consider staying there again.

I find it always a bit peculiar when people want to pay Days Inn prices but expect Mandarin Hotel Standards. Yes the BW Colony Inn is a bit vintage and that shows in some places, but our room is really clean and kept very tidy by housekeeping, the staff is helpful and friendly, the room features a fridge, tv, coffeemaker, desk and chair and for breakfast uo can have sausages and omlett with you toast, waffles, fresh fruit and some yogurts.

It has been many years since we have stayed at a Best Western hotel. On arrival we received a nice welcome but unfortunately it was not an indication on what was to come. The decor, paintwork, carpets and general cleanliness all badly need attention . In our bathroom there was a large damp patch on the wall, the paint was flaking off onto the carpet.( see photo) The bed linen and towels were not white but gray. The result was that we found no pleasure in being in the hotel. The carpets through... Read more

Great location for our visit to DC and Alexandria. We flew into Reagan International Airport and the shuttle to hotel was prompt with picking us up. All staff we encountered were friendly and accommodating. This is a three story establishment that has no elevator. We did not find it to be a problem, yet travelers need to be aware. Free breakfast was good and plentiful. They also offer free shuttle to Metro station as well as any establishment on nearby King Street. Would definately return to thi... Read more

Had a fantastic stay! The room was so quiet and had such comfy beds. The breakfast was nice and well stocked thanks to Mary Scott. The front desk staff were so helpful but the best amenity of this property is the shuttle. The drivers take you anywhere you want to go in a two mile radius, i.e. restaurants, King Street, museums, metro stations. Just call and the friendly guys will pick you when your feet give out from exploring! They picked us up from Reagan airport and we never needed a car. ... Read more

This hotel is in a great location and the exterior and interior brick is beautiful. The front desk person needs to be personable and offer best customer service. A front desk person should not have a dismissive attitude. The rooms need completely remodeled. The bedding and towels need replaced. The price is good but I would have paid more for this hotel if it was in better shape. It also might be nice if the rooms were all clean at check-in.

This hotel was perfectly located for Washington DC travelers...although a little hard to find at first because it is not on the main street. Lots of Pros including the price...very reasonable for that area. It was a short shuttle ride to the Braddock station. The indoor parking garage was great. The room, although dated, was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was unique and very tasty (not your usual filler food). The shuttle was a perfect amenity.

I wanted a decent hotel in Old Town Alexandria that provided free parking, after experiencing the obligatory parking fees in DC earlier this summer. This little hotel provided so much more! The staff was, without exception, professional, courteous, considerate & accommodating. The room was super clean, the beds super comfy. The water pressure & temperature of the shower were perfect, and the bathroom was vented quite well (a pet peeve of mine when "not"). Another nice touch was the clean rem... Read more

The hotel is not far from Braddock metro, and there is free shuttle service provided. There is not much around the hotel, but a short walk will get you to some places for dinner. The rooms are standard and clean. The bed was very comfortable and there was a great selection of pillows. The bathroom was not updated, but still nice. Plenty of hot water in the morning. The internet (free) was a bit disappointing. During the evening it slowed down, and I finally gave up at 10:30pm. In the morning it ... Read more

We had a wonderful breakfast every morning, comfortable beds, refrigerator in room, nice selection of channels on the TV for our kids and very friendly staff.

We were very pleased with the comfort of our room. Everything was clean and well-stocked. The staff were all extremely helpful. The complementary shuttle service was incredibly convenient and prompt. It really made the quaint downtown and the nearby train station incredibly accessible. All of the shuttle drivers were great, but Sean went out of his to be warm and engaging. I would certainly recommend this property and I would stay there again.

On the positive side, the staff was professional and helpful. Check in/out was efficient. And we appreciated the free parking and shuttle service.

This has been one of our favorite hotels for many years. Ownership changes have changed the atmosphere of The Old Colony Inn, but it is still a a favorite of ours. The elevator was broken preventing us from having breakfast and using the business center. The excellent staff did all they could to mitigate this inconvenience. We look forward to staying here after their upcoming renovation

Good location and charming exterior and lobby, but the guest room, while clean, was coming apart. This hotel is in need of serious renovation. Bathroom especially. Water did not turn off all the way, paint was literally peeling off the ceiling and onto my head, mold/mildew growing where the paint was peeling. The resurfacing material used on the tile was peeling off, the door was rusted beyond belief. The bed was comfortable and clean, but that' all that can be said.

Free airport shuttle that you have to call for. And the shuttle will take you to other locations, within 3 miles, on a half hour schedule. The hotel has no elevator. The room had a little fridge and microwave, ironing board. Nice front desk staff. A few blocks from the hotel is a bike trail along the water for jogging.-- although the trail is less than contiguous. It was still good for a run. Best of all it was quiet when I was there.

This was the perfect place for visiting Washington DC. We were there on Labor Day so, contrary to what I expected, parking in DC was not a problem. With the added help of a handicap permit we got to see everything we wanted in one full day. I say this because we left a day earlier than planned and We never took advantage of the hotel shuttle.

I paid just over $310 for three nights in this hotel during a peak weekend (NAAMHC opening). Other hotels were $150-$250 more for the same days. I was close to a Metro train station and close to stores & restaurants, all within walking distance (<= 15 minute walk). I would improve on the breakfast items, but would stay here again. The hotel staff called a cab for my early Sunday morning flight out of DCA & the cab arrived within 5 minutes.

Everyone at this hotel makes you feel welcome and accommodating. I met 3 different front desk staff - all were exceptional. Free shuttle to and from Reagan International and both drivers went out of their way for me. It's a must use location if you are flying out and need a hotel room before or after and a place to park your car. Don't forget the full free breakfast that comes with the room. And for all this, you get some of the best rates around.

We stayed here on our last night in the US, not wanting to be in Washington & to be fairly handy for Dulles. The staff were all most accommodating & there was a sense of pride in this hotel. We availed of the courtesy bus into old town Alexandria which is charming & enjoyed a meal in The Wharf. Clearly, for the price, this is not high end, but we found it to be a lovely, friendly hotel.

I stayed here for one night before a flight. If you have a morning flight, you'll need to find your own transportation as their shuttle service starts at 7 am and ends at 9 pm.
