Clean, quiet, comfortable beds, quiet HVAC, plentiful fresh towels, good amount of tv channels, good variety for breakfast including premade veggie omelets, biscuits & gravy, cinnamon rolls, sausage, pastries, oatmeals and cereals. Staff hustled to keep the breakfast coming for the large group that was staying there. Good hospitality and good room made for a comfortable visit.

We normally stay with family when traveling to the area, but this holiday their "inn" was full. I got a lot more rest and relaxation staying at this hotel, and for that I am very thankful. We started our days with the free breakfast buffet, which is constantly stocked with healthy and unhealthy options of all sorts, and then would...

LOCATION Hotel is centrally located to all parts of Fairfax. It's also the halfway point between Washington, Dulles Airport and central Washington, DC. Washington, Dulles is approx. 18 miles to the NW and DC is approx. 18 miles East. Drive time to either is about 30 minutes (varies based on traffic/time of day.) There is a Red Lobster in the...

My son and I went on a trip to Washington DC with the school. Got to stay here for 2 nights. Rooms were very clean and water pressure was awesome, especially after being on the bus for 24 hours. They had a wonderful breakfast buffet for all of us both mornings and were so very nice and friendly to us!...

Stayed here for a 5 day stay while touring around Washington D.C. While it is a little ways from downtown D.C. (a 10 min drive to metro then 35-40 min ride on train) It is well worth the stay.
