“If you need wifi, do NOT stay here!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

I've stayed here at least 4 times and everytime they have a poor excuse for their lack of wifi. If you use wifi, or need wifi, you'll thank me to NOT stay here. They never have a good signal and when they do, its very slow. Dial up is faster. Never will I stay here again. I'm a diamond with Choice hotels and this is one of the worst when dealing with wifi issues. It's non-existent.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

We stayed at this hotel in the process of moving from New Orleans to New England. We were visiting friends in Fairfax and needed a pet-friendly property with plenty of space for our rental truck that was trailering a car. The Comfort Inn filled the bill perfectly and the staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and willing to meet every need. The decor is dated but pleasant and everything is clean. Given the number of animals we saw, I was surprised our room didn't smell like a kennel -- it was fine. Our room was large and included a kitchenette. Fortunately, we didn't have a spa bathtub in the room! All in all, it was an excellent deal for what we paid.

We only stayed one night, but could easily have stayed for a week. The room was clean and the bathroom was in excellent condition. (We form most of our opinion on the condition of the bathtub!) Rental crib was brought to our room, assembled, and sheeted without any problems. Indoor pool was nicely decorated, the water was warm, and there was even a life guard. We would recommend this place to anyone.

Great experience with staff from making reservations to checkout. Room was clean and comfy, beds had pillow top matresses, good tv and Internet. Breakfast was good with hot and cold food choices. We didn't use the pool or fitness room since we spent most of our time in DC. They offer a free shuttle to the Metro station on weekdays. The only negative experiences were people slamming doors in the early morning, our neighbor's cigarette smoke coming through the door (which the staff took care of) and the hotel restaurant food was not that great.

stayed in this hotel last night. Room was huge. two double beds, a tv with dresser, a desk, night stand and a table and chairs. Extra space enough I could have danced around. Bathroom was normal size. Hotel had all the normal amenities in room. Check in went ok, computers froze when I got there but after a few minutes it was back up and I checked in. Checkout went great. Breakfast was normal continental breakfast. Hotel was great for what I needed. Beds were comfortable. Parking was easy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

We were looking for somewhere to stay which would allow us to make easy trips into Washington DC and this hotel was perfect for us, given our modest budget. The hotel rooms are spacious while unspectacular but for us this was fine as it was simply a place to sleep and shower. The bathroom was clean, there was a good selection of TV channels and the staff are very friendly. The advantage this hotel has is that there is a free shuttle service provided from the hotel to the local Vienna Fairfax metro station which is then a 30 minutre journey into the centre of DC. The tickets for the metro will cost around $5 each way which is fine, given that you have a free shuttle bus the other end (times for shuttle approx 07:30 - 21:00 on demand.

Would happily stay here again if visiting DC.

Stayed for one night (long enough). The elevator was not working. The hotel is in need of a makeover. The room had a poor layout and a musty smell. The bathroom was small and the water had a bleach smell to it. The beds were uncomfortable. In my future visits to Fairfax, I would spend a few dollars more and stay at a cleaner, newer and nicer hotel.
