Best Western Fairfax
Ranked #9 of 21 Hotels in Fairfax
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Upon arrival I was greeted by the front desk and promptly checked in. The room was clean and well decorated. Many places to see in the area and enough restaurants close by. The breakfast at the hotel was very enjoyable and had a variety to choose from, including eggs and sausage, pancakes, waffles, too long a list to list.

My Family and I stayed at the Best Western in Fairfax while looking at colleges in the D.C. Area. This was a good location to do that. Not directly in the city so less expensive, but close enough. The hotel was one of the cleanest I have seen in a long time. The breakfast was hot and had great, make your own waffles. The beds were big and the workers were very friendly and helpful.

I wanted to give this place a good rating but there wasn't one, so i went with average. It was clean and convenient and the bedding was decent. The free breakfast was fair, the omelet bar wan't open on Saturday or Sunday morning, the food was sort of lukewarm, and the danish was empty. However a big plus was the Belgium waffle machine, it was great and made excellent waffles. The front desk service was wonderful and the employees there were very friendly and helpful. The major downside was that the walls are very thin and we could hear the people next door like they were in our room. Luckily we're heavy sleepers but if you're not it would be annoying.

Room Tip: We loved our room location which on the first floor and with a view of the closed pool but there was...

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western Fairfax last weekend and were very pleased. The rooms were very clean and the comfortable bedding. The breakfast the following morning was a full hot breakfast even with an omlett bar. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. There is a metro bus by the hotel and the Metro is about a five minute drive away. Parking at the Metro is free on weekends and if you are new to the D.C. area, with a bit of prep work you can go all over Washington and surrounding areas by usig the Metro.(much easier than driving). The new "Wing" of the Air and Space Museum is just a short drive away and if you are flying in or out of Dulles International Airport, this is a very close location at a reaasonable price.
Please understand this is not a five star resort but it is certainly a great place for business, family or even as a woman traveling alone. We will stay there again, not so much for a romantic getaway but for a perfect location to start a DC sightseeing weekend.

Room Tip: We like the fact with that they offer drive up (outside) rooms. Convenient dealing with luggage.

We Chose Best Western because I have a rewards card and because of the good reviews here.
Upon arrival I was greeted by 2 smiling employees and given a gift bag of refreshments.
The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The beds had 4 giant fluffy pillows with 2 more spare ones on the closet rack. The bathroom was clean. (and blue tile! vintage hotel but I like vintage) We enjoyed breakfast the next morning which was a buffet with a variety of hot and cold foods. The restaurant overlooks the pool and gardens which was a very pleasant view for eating The pool is closed but has a fountain flowing. It also looks pretty at night. If I were to ask for an improvement, it would be the heating system, as it is a room heater that runs constantly to heat the room. (I prefer a thermostat system that cycles on and off) It is also an older hotel with parking far from any room but that is just a matter of convenience. We felt safe in this hotel and will stay again when traveling to Fairfax.

This hotel/motel has a great location with walking distance to a couple restaurants, very nice clean rooms and a complimentary breakfast with real (not powder) eggs! I recommend Best Western Fairfax and will stay there next time we are in Northern VA!
