“Pleasant stay, perfect location....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We stayed here because we wanted to go the Air and Space Museum at the Dulles Airport. Can't say enough about how accomodating this hotel was. Anything we asked for they provided. The staff was so friendly, especially Ruth the front desk manager. Breakfast was very good - hot food, the breakfast room was a little small but if you hit it between 730a - 800a there is plenty of room to sit. Our room looked out towards the Burger King and street but was super quiet. They have soft pillows to die for. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. To get to the museum the hotel arranged for a car to pick us up and take us there and then it returned at our requested time. It was about $25 each way but well worth the money. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor - slow elevator but no noise.

We moved to this hotel from downtown DC the day after Superstorm Sandy hit and were not sure when we would be leaving as our flight status kept changing. The staff was very accommodating and after we arrived the shuttle took us to eat at a nice restaurant for which they gave us a $5.00 off coupon. Lunch ended up costing less than $3.00 per person. Per our request on the way back to the hotel the shuttle driver dropped us off at the supermarket and waited for us. The day we left we were able to check-out later in the afternoon when we finally were able to get a flight. The breakfast area was a great location to get work done with coffee, tea, cookies and fruit always available. If we had to be stuck, it was a good place to hang-out.

We have come to like this chain, very homey feeling, and nice service. the breakfast was god and plentiful and the rooms were good as well. they were very kind and picked me up with the shuttle from the car rental place so that I wouldn't have to go back to the airport first.
Good freindly service and decent rooms, we would stay here again.

I spent five nights at the hotel with other business colleagues as it was central for the various meetings we had planned. Just ten minutes drive from the airport it is an ideal venue for a stop over going to or coming from the airport.

Hotel is staffed by very friendly and efficient staff who make you very welcome. Checking in was very quick and they put a drink and chocolates in the room on arrival. The rooms are a good size with a king size bed and lounge area with fridge and microwave. My room was very well maintained and had two TV's and a desk to work from.

|The hotel provides a continental breakfast with hot and cold options and coffee and biscuits on tap 24/7. (Note there is no hot food at the hotel after breakfast BUT there is a local food delivery service if required)

The hotel is opposite a Burger King outlet and a petrol garage but noise is not an issue.

A little too far out of Washington to be a base for sight seeing (traffic is SLOW into Washington)

Free Wi-Fi, business centre services, airport shuttle, small gym, laudry and free parking makes this a good quality option

We have never stayed at a Country Inn before so this was our first time.
There is no question that we will use it in the near future.
What service and your staff was wonderful.
So very helpful. Great service to and from Dulles airport. And very prompt.
Also, gave us great suggestions for going out to dinner upon our return home from Ireland.
The breakfast buffet was perfect. Everything was fresh and a great presentation.
Once again your staff did an excellent job.
Thank you for making our stay a memorable one.

Room Tip: The room was clean and very comfortable.

Stayed one night before catching long haul early morning flight.
Very reasonable price for huge and comfortable room, standard US free breakfast (which is just fine and rather good) and free half-hourly shuttle to/from IAD.
Sparse and multi-tasking staff clearly enjoy their jobs.
This could be a great choice if there is an easy/cheap way in and out of town.

Don't bother going through any park and ride service. Call the hotel directly and set up yoiur overnight stay and parking for you vehicle while away. The first two weeks are free and for a nominal charge ( we paid $1.00/night for the third week) you are good to go.The park and ride service I contacted was going to charge $7.00/night at the same hotel for the additional week. They drive you to the airport and pick you up on your return. I called after we cleared Customs and they picked us up within ten minutes. Although we were not staying overnight on our way home, Ruth at the desk invited us to have breakfast and then gave us excellent directions out of town. The hotel is clean and up to date and even has a lending library. Breakfast is continental, but sufficient for most travelers. This is the second time we have used this hotel for parking while out of the country and couldn't be more pleased both times!

Room Tip: I repeat....don't go through the Park and Ride service...give the hotel a direct call to set up...
