Where is a inexpensive place to stay outside Washington DC with access to the metro?

Question by angel1183: Where is a inexpensive place to stay outside Washington DC with access to the metro?
I would like to go there mid August. I don’t mind staying in a suburb as long as there is an easy way to get to the city. I want to stay in a motel/hotel, not in a hostile. Thank you!

Answer by nickdc1960
The closer into the city you get, the more you will pay for a hotel. So, your best bet is to find a hotel that is outside of Washington DC BUT close to the Metro (subway system).

I hightly recommend Virginia, as it is safer than Maryland. I’ve had people visit from out of town and I had them stay at a place near Van Dorn Street near Alexandria Virginia; I think it’s a Comfort Inn or Days Inn or something like that. But, it’s only about 1 mile from the Van Dorn Street Metro Station AND they have a free shuttle van if you wish to take it back and forth. They also have free parking at the place.

So, what you want to do is look at the DC Metro/subway system map online THEN compare it to the hotels that are featured online. Most will indicate how far they are from the Metro stations and if they offer a shuttle van.

Access is the leading database of choice for individuals and corporations looking to manage data easily, share information over intranets and the Internet, and build faster business solutions. Complete details on every aspect of creating, customizing, and maintaing an Access database. Full coverage of Web applications–hyperlinks, Web publishing, HTML output, importing, exporting, and linking. Explains how to integrate Access with the other components of the #1 Office Suite. CD-ROM contains hundreds of practice exam questions covering the material on the Access segment of the MOUS exam.Access 2000: The Complete Reference confronts the least intuitive element of Microsoft Office 2000 and does an admirable job explaining how to use its numerous tools and features. Intermediate and advanced Access 2000 users–as well as people upgrading from earlier versions of the database program–will appreciate Andersen’s comprehensive treatment of her subject.

Access 2000: The Complete Reference opens with a quick overview of the program’s most rudimentary functions before stepping back to discuss relational database concepts. Andersen then documents Access 2000’s data manipulation features, including the tools for establishing and manipulating relationships among tables. Readers also get a full rundown on building good queries.

Data presentation comes next: The book covers report creation–with and without the Report Wizard–and goes into depth on creating and editing graphs. The coverage of PivotTables–being both extremely powerful and rather hard to understand–could be more extensive. There’s also a considerable amount of text dedicated to Access 2000’s abilities to publish database information on networks and a little bit on Visual Basic as it applies to Access.

Throughout, Access 2000: The Complete Reference presents its documentation as a mixture of prose, stepped procedures, bulleted lists, and tables. A companion CD-ROM includes a quiz program that gauges the skills of people interested in taking the Microsoft Office User Specialist (MOUS) exam on Access 2000, plus the sample files discussed in the text. –David Wall
