We are enjoying a holiday weekend in these parts, though I will not be going anywhere.
Because I hate having to deal with holiday traffic and crowds.
But, let's pretend you are going away and need to find some accommodation for your road trip.
You will want to stay in a modern, luxury motel.
And just for fun, let's pretend that you are back in 1953 or 1963.
And that you are cheap, and will send the free AAA postcard you find in your room.
Because it is about a 7 hour drive to your next destination.
with 74 rooms, completely air conditioned, restaurant, heated swimming pool, TV in every room. One mile from downtown Washington, near Memorial and Key Bridges, Iwo Jima Statue, Tomb of Unknown Soldier, and Robert E Lee's House.' It is the Iwo Jima Motor Hotel (now a Best Western, though at one time was a Quality Inn). Then again, you may reconsider after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. There were quite a few, even up to July and August 2013, and most were not exactly glowing. Judging by the picture, it is hard to tell that this is a ten minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro Station. Apparently there is not much else in the area so you may be glad of the train into Washington DC.
Have a good weekend, everybody!
