“Great place for guests”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is a small, clean, quiet hotel with considerate, friendly staff. Michael, the manager, is available and very helpful. The rooms include very nice plasma TV's, new beds, microwave, and fridge. Public bus transportation is available to take you to one of the two nearby metro stations which takes you to visit the sites in the DC Metropolitan area. A continental breakfast is available. The hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants and close to the State Theatre where live entertainment is enjoyed. After a day of meetings or sightseeing, it is nice to relax in this comfortable hotel.

We have visited the DC area numerous times in the past 10 years, and, after several false starts, found Manager Michael at this hotel in Falls Church. Two metros with parking are 1.5 miles away from the hotel, or a bus stop is across the street. Several good restaurants are in the area for breakfast and dinner.
But best of all is the manager and his staff. Unfailingly cheerful, offering suggestions about events, travel, and food. The rooms are always clean, beds very cozy, and the price is reasonable.
We would not consider overnighting anywhere else in the area.

This is my third time staying at the virginia inn in falls church and I noticed that they have made major changes to the rooms like new beds, a new style of the bed, all the sheets look white and look clean and very comfortable. They also have new plasma tv's, and the housekeeping come and clean the room everyday and are very kind. The manager Michael is very kind to all the guests and when coming to the virginia inn it is like home because everyone is very kind. I really recommend this because they also have many restaurants close by, transportation is also very close and I am happy to have been a guest.

I read with particular interest the long and involved post dated January 9, 2012 from someone who stayed at the Inns of Virginia Falls Church, Falls Church, VA. Perhaps things have greatly changed since then, but my experience has and still is quite different. The poster warns women who are alone not to stay at this hotel. The poster says that he/she went to the front desk a couple of times to complain about smoke coming from an adjacent room. The poster complains about the lack of cleanliness, and the fact that the staff would not accommodate his or her many needs. Perhaps the poster would have been more comfortable, and should have considered staying at some of the nearby hotels, including the Ritz Carlton ($409/night), The Westin ($239/night), or the the McLean Hilton ($282/night) where I'm sure even they can't meet everyone's particular and specific requirements. What in heaven’s name does one expect for $90/night? Let me tell you based on my experience because I recently stayed at this hotel for several weeks -- again -- while in town for work-related business in D.C. Smoking: I asked for a non smoking room and got it on a non-smoking floor. The hotel staff does their best, but they can’t always control what people do. Instead of going downstairs to repeatedly complain about the smoke, why not just pick up the phone and call the manager on duty if one is so “afraid” of other guests?
Cleanliness: I NEVER had a problem with the cleanliness of my room. Also, the bed was extremely comfortable, even another guest remarked about the same thing.
Staff: From the front desk representatives (especially Michael the manager) to the housekeepers, I received nothing but excellent service and an “above and beyond the call of duty” level of accommodation.
Safety: As a woman alone, who travels a great deal, I have never felt unsafe at this hotel. The parking lot is extremely well lit at night; there is only one entrance (so you have to pass the front desk to get to the elevator or stairwell). The hotel is located in the quiet, historic, prosperous and SAFE community of Falls Church, VA where the Police Station is within walking distance (and the police are on the ball believe me – you better not drive more than 25 MPH around there – they are serious!), along with a public park, library, numerous restaurants, public transportation beautiful family orientated neighborhoods, etc. again, all within walking distance.
Yes the hotel is older, but the furnishings are more than decent, there is free WiFi and HBO. And if you want a more substantial contentiental breakfast than what is offered, simply walk across the street.
As mentioned, I travel frequently, and stay in many hotels. I have only written one other Trip Advisor hotel review, and that was for the Blue Moon Hotel in Miami (South Beach), another great little find. But I feel that it's important to "give credit where credit's due" especially for the non-chain, operations.

To sum it up, for $90/night you can’t do better in the Washington, D.C. area -- PERIOD. This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel, and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a CLEAN, SAFE & COURTEOUS experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor if you are a non-smoker

Originally planned to stay at this hotel for three nights. We booked this hotel because of its proximity to the GRE testing location (just a few blocks away). Unfortunately, I didn't read reviews before making the appointment.

Our first negative experience happened before we even left home - around 7 pm we received a call asking if we were planning on checking in. Apparently they were fully booked and wanted to know if we were still planning on coming in. Even though they had my credit card information (and I assumed would have charged me for not making the appointment), they apparently expected us to arrive by a certain time.

When we finally arrived and checked in, we were disappointed. The halls and elevator smelled strongly of smoke and the halls were narrow and dark. Even though we were in a non-smoking room, the room also smelled. The room and linens seemed clean, however the towels seemed too new (as in not-yet-washed). The mattress was also incredibly uncomfortable. It just seemed like they cut costs everywhere possible.

We got out of there as quickly as possible - after two nights (one before and after the GRE) we cancelled our third night and stayed at a nearby hotel that was a huge improvement.

Stayed 3 nights. It is a small hotel, but very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially the manager Michael. There was plenty of parking, a selection of pre packaged pastry, fruit, juice, and coffee. Not a fancy place, but very convenient to where we had to be. There was some noise at night from other rooms, but that happens at any hotel. I would stay there again

Room Tip: Treat the staff the way you expect to be treated
