Suggest a budget hotel in Washington DC outskirts?

Question by rick: Suggest a budget hotel in Washington DC outskirts?
As DC hotes are costly, I was wondering if I could stay little bit far from DC, drive in to a metro train station, park my car there and take subway for DC. Which nearby city, hotel and metro station may be my best bet.

Check the link below for Arlington, VA hotels. The MD suburbs where the hotels are tend to be far pricier than staying in the city. On the site below, the I-395 locations will be furthest from the metro but many hotels offer shuttle service. The Downtown Arlington hotels will be close to several Metro’s: Courthouse Square and Clarendon are two but I think there is a third. And the National Airport hotels will be right close to the National Airport Metro. If those still turn out to be out of your price range, send me a message and let me know what that price range is as lots of the local hotels are not well advertised. I might be able to make some suggestions.

    Try and get a hotel in Alexandria, VA. The Hilton is right across the street from the Metro. (I don’t know if you call that a budget place, but it is most convenient.) You wouldn’t even need to drive to the Metro. Just walk across the street, hop on the Metro and head to D.C. Also, you can explore Alexandria. There are a lot of different shops and restaurants to check out there too. They have a shuttle bus that is called the Dash About that you can ride for free–so you don’t need to worry about driving around town either.
