“Very helpful staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Stayed two nights here while attending a wedding. Front desk was very helpful,but not very knowledgable about local items such as the metro. Room was very nice and front desk cheerfully moved us when we felt like the non-smoking room might have been used by smokers. Breakfast was very nice and a little different each morning. Large group of middle schoolers came in during our stay but they were roomed on the first floor and did not cause any disturbance. Would like to mention it cost $4.75 to park at the metro for one day and you must use a credit card to pay on the way out. Also, if only going to the Smithsonian stop on the blue line, it is cheaper to buy a direct ticket rather than a one day pass. Took about 40 minutes to get there.

Stayed here with over 100 8th grade students, parents & staff for 3 nights while touring the DC area. Had a very warm & comfortable stay. Rooms were spacious &had 2 queen beds in them with comfortable mattresses - very important after walking around the DC area all day! Hotel staff went out of their way to attend to our various needs, even setting up a buffet table in the hallway for breakfast with a variety of fresh food. Jane worked tirelessly with a bright smile to have all of us fed & off to our tours on time! She's quite an asset to this hotel. Thanks, again, Jane for all you did!!
I will definitely be staying here again if I'm ever in the area again!

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.
