“No complaints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Overall a very good stay. the reason for the 4 star rating is the lack of continental breakfast. the blow was greatly softened on our stay since the rate was only $59. since I think that rate was an anomaly, normal rates with no breakfast makes it 4-star. the check in and check out was smooth, the lady at the desk told us where to park for easiest room access, a nice detail to include without being asked. bed was comfy, internet worked well. all was good! grocery store next door as well.

Surprising interior design - looked more like a boutique hotel than your average chain hotel. Food bar was very good, a little expensive but good proportions, freshly prepared and delicious. Starbucks coffee. You could eat in the lounge area or take the food to your room. Rooms were nicely decorated with intelligent space planning. Lots of thoughtful touches and comfortable, separated shower and toilet from sink area, and an extra level above the sink to keep the space more organized. Extra pull out table under shelf in room to give you more space for a computer or eating. Was just there for a quick night so did not check out the rest of the amenities but it was a very good value for the price.

My work took me to Fairfax for a short two day work trip. The ride from Dulles International airport was not excessive; however it is easy to see that traffic can be a major problem in the greater DC area. The check-in staff was efficient and courteous. My plan did not include breakfast and I did not use the spa, work-out room or pool so I cannot comment on the worth of quality of these. The location is convenient as a Giant grocery store is adjacent. For those not familiar with the Kroger branded Giant grocery chain the stores cover the full range of grocery and pharmacy needs. The hotel property was very well maintained and the trees, grass and shrubs were nearly perfect in all cases. The main building is brick and blends into the area and theme/style of the adjacent buildings very well. The parking lot is well paved and appears to have good drainage. There are a few restaurants in the area, notably Wendy’s which is only a five minute walk to the south. There are also an abundance of gasoline filling stations which make it easy to procure gasoline for a car should you have driven one to the property.

Room Tip: sits off the busy Jackson-Lee road so all rooms are quiet

The good - The room was clean, plenty of towels, good TV. The not so good - The bed needs to be replaced. 'Twas a king size and both of us awoke with back aches. No complimentary continental breakfast. Yes, they do have a breakfast but it's a bit pricey for what you get. We might consider this again vbut we'll check around first.

We are a family of five and stayed here one night over this past Memorial Day weekend for a family trip to DC. Saturday morning we drove from NY to DC area and parked for the day in downtown area ($12). After a long day we drove the 25-30 minutes to this hotel for our one night stay.

Check in was fine without any issues. They accommodated our request to have our room adjoined with the friends we were traveling with. The hotel is clean and quite. For the price point ($129) my opinion it is well worth the drive out of DC for a nice rest before another fun filled day in DC. Especially with the kids. We would have spent double the money to stay in the DC area. There were no parking fees or internet fees here either which was nice.

We booked a king suite which has a pull out couch in one room and a king in a separate room. The little guy (six) slept in the bed with us and the two older ones (9 and 11) slept on the pull out. The mattresses on the King was very comfortable. Normally my back would bother me after a night on these hotel mattresses.

Friends of ours had the same sleeping arrangement without the separate room for $20 less. (Their room adjoined ours which was also nice as the kids all killed each other in one room and we hung out living area of the suite.).

As stated above for the price point well worth the stay and drive back and forth to DC. Would stay here again for our next family trip to DC.

Nice stay, friendly staff.
Room was standard king bed room which we got for $109 through hotels.com. There's a grocery store next door and a nice shopping plaza close by. We didn't have any problems except that one of our keys stopped working but that was not a big deal. We ate breakfast at the cafe in the morning. $20 for 2 breakfast sandwiches and two drinks and they come with fresh fruit cups. They close at 10am, which caught some late comers off guard. Check out is at noon. It seems like each room has a balcony which was a nice surprise.

I was on business trip staying Sunday through Thursday. The hotel was immaculate, the staff was superior in customer service and satisfaction from sunrise to midnight! The breakfast bar and service was a great way to start the day as well as dinner dining. Conveniently located in walking distance to the Fair Oaks mall which offers excellent dining experiences as well. If you must be home away from home, the staff of this hotel insures a elegant, pleasant and memorable stay. The service warranted a personal thank you to management on the way out....

Room Tip: As a courtyard, I was on the interior side which was great. One side of motel faces busy Rt. 50 and...
