“Very Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights with 2 adjoining rooms. One of the rooms smelled strongly of mold, which was disgusting. Bathrooms are in desperate need of an update, and are WAY too small. Rooms were decent, with fridge and coffee maker. All of the pillows were much too soft and did not provide sufficient head/neck support, causing pain the next day. Free breakfast and parking were fine. At only $104/night, this hotel is fine for the price, but I would probably spend a little more for better hotel next time.

Stayed at the Comfort Inn University Center the night before visiting DC with my family. Near I-66 into town, so traveling into DC on Saturday was very convenient. (Travel on 66 during weekdays maybe different, so check.) We were given a large two double bed room with kitchen. Comfortable and clean. The kids enjoyed the pool and the value for price is very good.

Staff was very helpful and friendly, were easy to deal with, and offered great suggestions when asked.

They do host group tours, but not a problem for average traveler. I even recognized the property from a trip I took to DC with my students. Hotel has two towers, seemed like the groups were in the other tower from us, and groups had a separate breakfast area

This is a very nice property and has spacious rooms with all facilities. Beds were quite comfy and the hotel is very well maintained. Breakfast was quite good and had a diverse menu. Recommended for visitors in transit. In all, a value for money hotel.

What a great place to stay! The room was spacious, clean and COMFORT-able but that's in the name. The lobby was welcoming as were the staff. We relaxed in the lobby and made some new friends. The shuttle to the Metro was convenient and made our journey's into DC so easy. Lots of places nearby to eat or shop and the 'old town' area was quaint and inviting. I've already recommended this hotel to others and will certainly stay there when we return to this area.

Room Tip: It seemed that any choice would be a good one. I never heard any other guest complain, not once.

Rooms were large. Service was excellent! Close to the metro. We had 6 of us staying in the same room and it was comfortable. Pool was enjoyable and breakfast was a plus! I would definitely stay here again!!

Two words; Hero Brian

I bring my daughter and her friend to the Fairfax area over the summer for figure skating training. I decided to stop in the hotel much earlier than check in time. The kids ran in to see if the room was ready while I sat outside making some calls. Not only did Brian let us check in early but he also let the girls pick out the floor and room before I even walked in the lobby. From that point the girls referred to Brian at the front desk as Hero Brian!

The following week we stayed at a different hotel. The girls ran in before again me expecting the front desk to let them pick their room. The front desk personnel wouldn't even speak to the girls until I walked in. They were highly disappointed and asked to leave and go to the hotel that "Hero Brian" worked at.

You can stay at a fancier hotel but I assure you there's no "Hero Brian" there.

This hotel is clean, reasonably priced, perfect location for where we are going and the staff is very welcoming! Don't let the outside appearance fool you!
