“A nice surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

I stayed 2 nights at this Best Western while visiting friends in the area. The hotel is older, but was very clean and had a great complimentary breakfast, comparable to Hampton! All rooms had access from the outside, and had nice furnishings and comfortable beds. I paid under $80/night and think it was a good value. Easy wi fi access and during the summer the pool would be open. I'd stay there again.

Dear MJSKI685,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I hope that you do have the opportunity to stay with us again in the future. We consider breakfast as a very important part of the services we provide our guests. If we would not eat it, we would not serve it.

Sincerely,
Stephen C. May

I have stayed at other Best Westerns nation wide and I must say that this was my best experience. I was welcomed by very friendly staff who checked me in promptly and was knowledgable in all the areas restaurants and transportation. I was welcomed to a very clean room with a beautiful pool side view. I was there for 3 days for the cherry blossom parade and each day was a peaceful and comfortable stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and i was very surprised to walk into a fabulous buffet breakfast that I have not experienced at higher end hotels that I have stayed at. I will certainly stay there again when my travels bring me to Washington DC.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are very nice

Hotel rooms were clean, well appointed, and had a comfortable bed. The shower worked well. The full breakfast buffet was great. We were visiting DC for the Cherry Blossom festival but found the hotels there to be prohibitively expensive. For less than half the price, staying in Fairfax is a bargain. Although we didn't travel by metro, driving to the DC waterfront was pretty quick and ensured that our car was close by in the evening after the fireworks. Parking was $10 for the day.

If you need to be close to Fairfax City/Oakton/Vienna, it's not bad, but you're not getting a lot for the $. Lobby is really nice, breakfast wasn't bad, but TV was terrible. I don't understand the point of putting new flatscreens in the rooms, but still having analog cable lines in the rooms.

Dear Edward,

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay. I agree fully with your comments regarding the television quality. While most of our televisions do have a high level of reception, high definition would greatly improve the experience. We are currently working with Cox cable on the feasibility of bringing high definition to our property.

Sincerely,

Very clean, and the staff was friendly. Good price. I would stay again. Great location. Near shopping, DC, the courthouse. Good places to eat nearby. The bed was a little too firm. Not too bad-- just not as soft as I would like. The pool looked nice, but it was a little to cold to try it out! Breakfast was great too.

The hotel staff was one of the best I have met. The beds were a little hard but not a reason not to visit again. The hotel was very clean and easily located to D.C. and Dulles airport. The breakfast was good and had a nice view and friendly staff. The hotel has a restaurant attached for convenience and was close to the metro and buses.

I stayed here and really enjoyed the experience. I got hot cookies at the front desk, the management was helpful, and the overall experience exceeded my expectations. I will be staying here again! The bed was nice, room was nice, parking was nice, it's close to the highway if you want to get to DC.
