Decent pricing. But the rooms are creepy and I the appearance of the exterior and interior leave much to be desired. I had no choice but to stay at this hotel because of my job, but if you can avoid reserving a room here, please do. Breakfast was very limited, most items were missing within the hour.

I have stayed in this hotel twice between 2002 and 2012. Both the stays have been for a long duration. Nice ambience and good service. I particularly enjoyed the breakfast every morning. The place is quiet.

We spent 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very close to the Metro stop which makes it an easy trip to the sights. The rooms are nice and the staff is excellent. The breakfast has a lot of items and is better than most. The wi-fi could have been better. Overall, we were happy with the hotel... More

We stayed 2 nights while visiting a local university. The hotel staff was very nice. The hotel itself has a nicely renovated lobby. The exterior of the hotel could use some fresh paint. Our room had a very outdated but basically clean bathroom. It appeared the 70's gold tile had been recently re-grouted so it was clean without any mold... More

As a family of four on a short vacation to Washington DC, and as a worn out from driving all day father, my greeting by the front desk would definitely make or break my initial trip to DC in many many years, The front desk made my trip by being courteous, informed of the area, and asking was there anything...

I never thought I would be able to afford a decent hotel in the DC area when I was planning my weekend visit here but I was very wrong. Not only is the Best Western Fairfax hotel very affordable but the room was spacious, had all the little extras that I could possibly want, and was very clean. The front... More

A decent Motel, NOT hotel is the first caveat. The entrances to your room are OUTSIDE. The room was clean and adequate overall; however, the beds were so hard that all three adults had bad back problems the next day. The free breakfast was a nice perk. The motel desk clerk was helpful. If you are accustomed to a very... More

Dear Ms. Thunderpebbles, I regret that you found some of our mattresses to be to firm. We know that one of the current trends in our industry is towards having a softer, pillow type mattress topping. We are currently looking at having some of those installed at our property. Otherwise, I am glad that you enjoyed our hospitality and breakfast. More

My wife and I were very satisfied with the hotel. The price we paid was fantastic, and we were very close to the metro line. We were vacationing in DC, and this was much cheaper than staying there. The breakfast was great! Very clean as well.

Dear Tim, I am glad to read that you enjoyed your stay while visiting DC. Our reasonable prices and cleanliness are two of the reasons why it isn't necessary to stay downtown. You can stay in the suburbs and still enjoy your vacation. More

Always stay here when I am in the Washington DC area. Wonderful service, outstanding employees, great breakfast selection, good rooms. This motel is convenient to DC, Manassas, Alexandria, and Reston. I usually us a coupon so I try to check in early in afternoon since the rooms go quickly.
