“Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We traded in our airmiles to stay here for two nights while we toured Washington. It was very close driving distance to the attractions and the room was comfortable and clean. Their pool was very nice as was the surroundings around the pool deck.
I would definitely stay here again if I decide to visit Washington again

Dear Kasakeri from Canada,

We are glad that using your airmiles worked out will for you. We are only a short 30 minutes drive from downtown Washington or a 5 minute drive to the closest Metro Station. Our courtyard pool is the outdoor focal point of the hotel. In the off season, surrounded by our landscaped grounds, it is very beautiful. We hope you do decide to visit Washington again and chose to stay with us.

We had a great stay in the Best Western Fairfax, Virginia. It was a surprisingly clean and quiet. The property is basically a big motel with external access on two or three levels. The grounds are nicely landscaped. Staff members were very attentive, and the other guests were friendly and quiet. The breakfast was plentiful and graciously served in a dining room with leafy views. The pool looked great but we did not make it in. This was one of the cleanest budget hotels we have used.

Dear M J from Australia,

We are happy that you had a great stay and found our Hotel to be surprisingly clean and quiet. Being clean and friendly are very important to us. We might not be the newest on the block but we always work towards providing a friendly, clean and well maintained property. Of course a plentiful breakfast also helps. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

My wife and 2 kids stayed at this hotel for a week. The breakfast was very nice. The quality and experience made it seem almost as though you went out to eat and gave many different breakfast options. My family gives the hotel kudos for their free breakfast experience.

The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Overall, the experience was great. The price is what is to be expected with a dating hotel without all the problems. I would definitely consider staying here again.

Large room with mircro and fridge, medium-sized TV. Everything is dated and clean. Smelly rooms, not the worst of smells (just obvious nothing is updated).

Front desk: If you don't approach them, they won't greet.

Breakfast: average, many choices, including waffle-maker.

Old heat/air situation.

Bathroom: Shower works in a strange way, yet has OK water pressure.

Room Tip: room 219 faces parking lot/back vs. pool.

First, the good stuff. The staff at the front desk was awesome and very helpful when it came to questions on public transportation-buses, metro-getting in and out of DC. Sandra was especially helpful. I even printed some eTickets in the lobby. The hotel is right across the street from the bus stop which takes you to the metro. The bedding and pillows were clean. The breakfast was great and so was the lady keeping everything stocked for breakfast-sorry, didn't catch her name. Now, the bad stuff. There are no exhaust fans in the bathrooms so everything stays damp-makes the room damp and musty. There are three stories and we were on the first floor-good because no elevators. We were in the room right across from the pool-ok because the air conditioner drowned out the noise from the pool. Our room was nonsmoking but they had a container for putting out cigarettes right outside of our room. These rooms are all motel style-opening to the outside, not a hallway. The laundry room, while convenient, was very hot. I sat out on a picnic table waiting for the laundry to finish and watched several rats chase each other around the courtyard by the pool. I couldn't believe my eyes at first but then another guest commented on them as well. This is not the high standards that I expect from a Best Western.

Dear Brenda,

Thank you very much for your positive comments regarding our service and breakfast. As soon as I saw your comments regarding rats, I contacted our exterminator and he found a nest in our dumpster which he immediately took care of. All of our guest bathrooms do have exhaust vents, but, during your stay the roof top fan motor broke and had to be replaced. We wish we could have provided you with a better guest experience. Again, thank you for your comments.

Clean room, decent hot/cold buffet breakfast and great value. My only complaint is that the AC unit fan doesn't shut off when the compressor does. But the fan noise can mask outside noise although there wasn't much.
