“Fantastic Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Extremely clean rooms - very professional, friendly staff - very good deal. Most definitely recommend this for a romantic weekend away or a professional retreat. I was not aware that the hotel is right in the middle of GMU and accidentally booked a weekend away during the college students' move-in weekend. Despite this, the traffic was fine, there were none of the loud party noises one would have expected and the rates were amazing. There were no restaurants to walk to, but a ten minute drive in any direction provided a wide variety of dining choices. Our room shared the wall with the gym, which I expected would create a great deal of noise. I never heard the gym equipment through the walls once although I saw many people go in and out of the gym.

Very nice front staff and good service throughout. Our a/c did not work and was blowing hot air but they said that was a problem in a number of rooms and they were trying to get engineering to figure out the cause and the fix. I thought the bed was fine, husband did not. Would return again without hesitation if needed to be on or near campus. Clean, convenient, quiet, friendly. Nice small bar. Decent food.

Hello G A.

Thank you for your kind word regarding your stay with us.

I know how frustrating it was with the Air Conditioner problems that we were experiencing and I appreciate the patience of you and all of our guests as we fixed the problem.

If you come back to the area I look forward to hosting you again!

I was here december 2012 for my dads meeting, and the resort is really nice, Fairfax is a really cold place, but the hotel was really comfty,

Service was nice, and the recepcionist were pretty, rooms are big, and the place was quiet perfect for relaxing.
If you are looking for a good resort and a good price this is the place.

if visiting gmu this is the place to stay. I also was visitin dc, and it took about an hour with shuttle and metro to go to closest part of "the mall".

Rooms and lobby are very nice, restaurant had good food, service was professional in lobby and restaurant. Price was low enough to put up with 1 hour trip to dc.
Would definitely return.

The Mason Inn is a beauitiful hotel with a wonderful Staff. It has beautiful conference rooms and a very good restaurant, You can use the underground parking during inclimate weather and parking is free. The corner rooms also provide a wonderful view of the George Mason campus. As a high tier member of all the major hotel chains, I find the Mason Inn to be a breath of fresh air!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are fantastic.

The staff was very helpful, place was spotless inside and out, breakfast was spectacular and well worth the price. But the tiny double bed had the absolute most uncomfortable mattress, and the room was small and not well appointed. I don't believe the room was worth what we paid for it, but maybe that's just DC pricing. We will be visiting Fairfax often, since our daughter just began her freshman year at George Mason. But I think we will try another hotel next time.

Greetings Beth Ann S.

Thank you for taking the time to share you experience with TripAdvisor. It is because of feedback from folks just like you that we are able to continually improve our product and our services.

I am very concerned about your comments regarding our in room offerings. The most immediate concern is that of the mattress; we have only been open for three years and with a lifepsan on about ten years on a mattress I would very much like to check on the quality of the mattress in your room.

I would also like to gain your insight into what you mean by not well appointed. Our rooms offer a variety of options and we might have a configuration that might suit your needs better.

Please reach out to me at the hotel so that I can make the arrangements for your next visit to Fairfax.

Thanks again and regards.

Christopher.
