“No complaints here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This Best western is an old Holiday inn that has been here for decades. I like the old holiday in room layout that was the standard back in the 70s and 80s, it reminds me of when I was a kid on vacation. The building may be old but the current owners have the place in great condition. Everything was clean and comfortable and although I did not use the pool it looked very clean and inviting on a warm summer evening. There was a listing in the hotel directory for a Chinese restaurant called China Garden, I called them up and they delivered some of the best Chinese food I have had in a long time and they got it delivered to my room in less than 20 minutes. I was here for just one night and will return next time I am in Fairfax.

Room Tip: They do have some rooms that you can park almost in front of the door, they are around in the back.

We stayed with Best Western July 9th & 10th. Our stay was very good. The staff was very friendly and a hats off to the lady that handles the morning breakfast. She kept everything filled and when something ran low she got right on to it. Thank you The front desk staff that we dealt with in the mornings and later in the evening we all very friendly, the morning staff even helped us to plan our visit into the city with maps. We were only expecting to stay one night but everything was so good we extended our stay to be able to visit Washington, D.C. another day. I can't think of one thing that was bad other than our a/c made some weird noises, but it still worked fine. We plan on traveling to Washington again later this year and we will definitely look into stay with this location of Best Western again. Thank you

Room Tip: About 20 minute ride into Washington D.C on a weekday morning.

Stay with one of America's presidents -- at least with their portrait on the wall.

Have a wonderful breakfast in the well appointed dining room and then head out for the day's sightseeing by car. The nearest Metro stop is a few miles away, but by car you can immediately hop onto I-66 for a quick (or maybe not so quick!) ride to the capital.

If traffic is bad going in to town, go the other way and spend the day at Manassas Battlefield or one of many other historic sites west of Fairfax.

Rooms are large and quiet. The pool is an old design so it also is large and pleasant.

Walk a block or two for Asian food or a heart-stopping Fuddrucker's burger.

This is a typical 2 star hotel. Did have a flat screen TV. Ask for up to 4 breakfast tickets. Great breakfast with lots of hot choices, but don't get to breakfast close to end or they may be out of some things. 3 stories with no elevator. Outside entry. Good plentiful parking. A/C was very cold and could not get turned down easily. Fridge and microwave was helpful. Good access off I-66 and 5 min. from Vienna Metro. Great hotel for what we wanted, convenient access and at a good price. We would stay here again.

Booked this motel as a layover spot to rest on 7/4/13 before going to Mt Vernon and heading into DC. If not for the terrible musty smell in the room, this would have been a pretty good place. Easy to get to and a nice pool. Desk staff and motel worker were really very helpful (brought us take out menus and told us about viewing the local fireworks from the parking lot across street. Even the older room would have been ok if it weren't for the musty smell - OVERWHELMING. My guess is it was from the AC. Stayed in a smoking room, but it did not smell of smoke, but old water. I wiped the room down with lysol (which I always do), but didn't do a thing for the smell.

If you are reminiscent about the good old days, stay here. The hotel is an older property with outside corridors and harvest gold bathrooms. The bed is comfortable, the furnishings have been updated, and there is a flat screen TV. However, I believe the bathroom hasn't been touched since I stayed here on a business trip over a decade ago. This isn't necessarily a bad thing except it really didn't feel very clean, either. There were hairs on the bathroom floor and on the bed. It certainly wasn't the worst room I've ever had, but it was far from the cleanest room I've ever had. There is a little placard on the bathroom counter that talks about how the room is "Ultra cleaned". I got a chuckle reading it because the room didn't live up to the description. I will say the outside of the property is beautifully landscaped. It can be hard to pull out of the parking lot at rush hour.

The best thing about my stay was the breakfast. It was spectacular. They have a buffet full of hot items, including biscuits, gravy, meats, corned beef hash, etc. It was a better selection than I have seen at many restaurants. It is the best breakfast I have had at a hotel in the DC area. If you stay here, don't miss the breakfast!
