I chose this hotel because it was close to Ft. Belvoir, was very reasonably priced, and said it had wifi. On checking in, I found that the carpet smelled of dampness and dogs, but they had disinfected and used deodorants. I kept the AC running and it got better. Otherwise, the room was perfectly clean. The bed was fairly uncomfortable, with a thin layer of padding over steel springs. The bath tub faucet dripped terribly, and that's a waste but it didn't affect me.
The hotel offers free continental breakfast, but I didn't get to try it as I had to leave at 6:30 and the breakfast started at 7:00. There was a coffee maker in the room, but I had to ask at the desk for coffee packets and styrofoam cups, which they kept behind the counter. They looked at me like I was taking food from children, and told me to get the free breakfast. I had to explain that I had to leave early.
Another problem was that the wifi didn't work. I tried for 2 hours to get connected, using both IE and Mozilla, and couldn't get online. There was only one ice machine, on the 3rd floor, and no elevators. If you stay there, take light luggage or stay on the 1st floor. Use the side doors if you can, as the front door has smokers sitting on the steps (there is no place for them to smoke otherwise).
The best thing about this hotel is that it is close to a good bar and restaurant, Water's Edge, at a marina on the Occoquan River. It was a very friendly place, overlooking the docks, and the service was great. I got a fillet mignon that was great for only 15 bucks.
The next time I have business at Ft. Belvoir, I will stay elsewhere and drive over to Water's Edge for dinner.

I apologize to this reviewer. It appears that they did not have a pleasant stay at our hotel. At our hotel we use a ozone machine in the rooms to remove odors. If the management had been notified immediately they would have addressed the issue and or moved the person to another room. Our hotel rooms are equipped with coffee packets in the room. If ever the supply is not there a simple call to the front desk would rectify the situation. We offer free high speed internet connection through Comcast and we just recently updated to a much higher speed to accomodate more people using the system at the same time. At Inns of Virginia we strive to offer our customer's a clean, comfortable room that is clean and affordable. As always, if there is a problem managment will work to resolve as soon as notified.
