Oakwood Falls Church
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Falls Church
Reviewed August 15, 2014

We visited Washington during the July 4 week and hence had a limited choice of accommodation. This property was roomy but required better maintenance and care. The 1BR are equipped with a fully stocked kitchen and a dishwasher to ease the cleaning. The drive to the Washington museums and sights takes 20 mins and there is ample parking on site. We never got to use the on-site facilities though the pool did look extremely over crowded during most days. Unfortunately, there are no groceries within a walking distance thus making driving a necessity. We stayed for a week which was ample time to watch the fireworks, visit all the museums and monuments and wave at the White House from a distance. Housekeeping is undertaken on a weekly basis. The tariffs are moderate though I would not be surprised if you could obtain a fully serviced unit at the same price at most other times. All in all an average accommodation with no frills or with serious issues.

I have stayed at Oakwood Falls Church three times over the last 4 years -- once for about a week; the second time for 6 months, and most recently for one month. These have been for stays in between work assignments, or for training assignments. For the longest stay, I had a roomy one bedroom; for the other two times, fairly spacious studios. While not luxurious, the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, and include fully stocked kitchens. The studios do not have washer/dryers, but it is easy enough to use those on every other floor. Parking, wi-fi, gym, tv are included in the price. East Falls Church metro is about 10 minutes by foot, or you can take the free shuttle. There are also weekend shuttles to nearby grocery stores. On site are a pool, tennis court, convenience store, and dry cleaners. The 7 Corners area is not the most beautiful, and Rt 7 can be
a bit of a nightmare, but if you don't need to be that close to Washington DC, or closer in to the city, this place is just about perfect.

Having stayed at a host of temporary housing locations over the years, Oakwood Falls Church is best avoided. Poor customer service combined with maintenance issues due to the property's age and subpar repairs should place this property at the bottom of anyone's list. Do yourself a favor a stay at their other properties in Ballston, Rosslyn, or Crystal City or somewhere else entirely before considering this one.

The Oakwood Apartments rents rooms for as little as 3-night stays. These rooms are like those found at a Residence Inn, or a resort. Ours was very nice, clean, and roomy. If you are looking into staying in the Arlington area for a few nights you should consider this place.

I can only recommend Oakwood Falls Church to all who are visiting DC for an extended period of time. Its clean and nice, comfortable and relatively near the city. The Shuttle is not always punctual back and from the metro station but if you don't mind walking, it is really only a few minutes from each other. Service is is friendly and as expected. You dont get luxury here but if you are not looking for 5 start hotel its the place to stay. The 1 bed apartment was enough for two people with all the equipment that one would need. I would recommend to allow drying on the balcony so one can save on energy.

Room Tip: go for 1 bed if you want to have washer and dryer inside the room; apple tv needs IT support to get...

Cheat Sheet:

- Great Rates
- Convenient Location to NOVA/DCA
- Communal Feel (for the wayward traveler)
- Well-furnished room and kitchen

I go to the DC / NOVA area a lot. If you come to visit family, lovers, or have part-time work in DC, I highly recommend you think about Oakwood Falls Church.

The constant hotel hopping can be a drag and can leave you feeling like a travel-worn drifter. Oakwood offers a place you can sink your feet into for a few days. The fully furnished rooms are nice and spacious. The kitchens are fully equipped. I like to cook, and so does the girl I like to see there. I think I booked it for 89.00 a night. This, along with saving money with cooking, allows us to go to one of the really tasty places in DC for a treat. (see my review on Rose's Luxury).

They have a gym, wi-fi, and an outdoor pool. It feels more like apartments than a hotel. And, if you aren't familiar to the area, Falls Church is really convenient to both Fairfax and the DC proper area. You can hop on the metro and get anywhere you need to go.

Give it a try.

My son had two short-term internships, one in Arlington and the other in DC. The short duration made it very difficult to find an affordable & clean apartment that was close to public transportation. Oakwood, although expensive, was the perfect solution. The staff made move-in super easy, the apartment was perfect was my son's needs and the free shuttle bus to the metro and shopping was wonderful. I highly recommend Oakwood.
