“Comfortable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We were in Lorton to catch the Auto Train to Florida and you could not ask for a more convenient location to do this - the hotel is less than a 5 minute drive to the train station. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well maintained. There was not traffic noise or outside noises that impeded our sleep so we slept great. Our room had a refrigerator - which is also a great convenience. Restaurants were close by - a short drive - none were within walking distance. We had no trouble finding a place to have dinner (Glory Days) where the service was very good, reasonably priced and tasty food. The staff was great - answering any of our questions and sharing information about which we asked. Breakfast at the hotel was included and they had plenty of selection and the food was good and served hot. We stayed in room 418 on March 24, 2013 and would stay in this hotel again. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed here on March 24, 2013 in room 416 for the first time but it will not be the last. We were greeted with warm cookies. Our room was very comfortable and very clean with a refrigerator and microwave. There is a fitness center with a few machines. The breakfast was great. The location is great with several restaurants in walking distance. If you taking the Auto train is it perfect. The manager Tony Grayley was very nice and made sure our stay was the best it could be. We will stay here every time we are in the area.

This is a very nice place in a great location especially if you are going to get the Autotrain. The rooms are a decent size and clean with refrigerator and microwave. They have a small fitness room and a nice lobby, breakfast and fantastic cookies at night. There are several restaurants right across the road. They have washers and dryers available. Nice service. Will stay here every time we take the train.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Comfort Inn. From the front desk clerk, Lisa, to the cleaning and maintenance staff, everyone was kind and helpful. The room was clean, quiet, and conveniently located next to some great restaurants. We will definitely stay here again!

On March 14 we stayed in Room 218 having missed the Autotrain. The accomodations were quite acceptable, and we were given a "missed train" discount. The manager, Tony Gravley, was very helpful and gave us several suggestions for area restaurants that evening. The next day, after checkout, he welcomed us to relax in the hotel lobby, use our computer, and read the paper while waiting for the next train. Next year we may even plan our train trip with the Comfort Inn included.

This hotel was very convenient to the Amtrak Auto Train. There were numerous restaurants and take out places close by with some offering discounts to Comfort Inn guests. The hotel was very clean and the beds comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and most helpful with any questions we had. There was a hot breakfast which had a good variety of items to choose from . What most impressed us was the fact that the manager, Tony Gravley did a morning walkaround to speak to guests to make sure that their stay was satisfactory. This is the first time that we have seen this happen at a Choice property and in our opinion, all of the hotels should implement this. We would definitely choose this hotel the next time that we take the Auto Train or when we are visiting the area.

Room Tip: This hotel allows late and early checkouts which is very convenient when taking the Auto Train since...

I was very disappointed in my recent stay here. We were traveling with our pet and the room we were put in smelled terrible and was not clean. The furniture was very shabby and there was hair in the blankets and in the shower. Plus, the toilet didn't flush and we had to use the hall rest room. I have stayed here before and things were okay but we won't be back again.
La Quinta Hotels welcome me and my pet into any run-of-house room and I greatly appreciate that.

Room Tip: Don't come here with a pet.

First and foremost thank you for taking the time to post this review about our hotel. I apologize from the bottom of my heart that you did not have the experience that our hotel promotes.

As you can read by our comments listed this is most certainly not what the normal level of service is for our property. We maintain very high scores when it comes to both cleanliness and service.

We appreciate your business and want the chance to win you over. I hope that you???ll give us another try!
