We are planning a trip to Washington, D.C. in mid September followed by a trip down the Blue Ridge Pkwy. Having a difficult time finding a place to stay in the D.C. area. Rates are in the $200/day range plus $25-$35 a day parking. Several years ago we stayed at a B&B in Alexandria which was perfect; easy walk to the Metro and zip right into town. Unfortunately, it no longer exists. We would really prefer to stay outside of the city as long as we have easy access to the Metro and parking for the bike. B&B, hotel, motel (but not the no-tell motel) is fine with us. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
