A great and comfortable place to stay. Out of the center of town for a more relaxing environment, yet close enough to everything in a 20 minute drive. The wi-fi is fast and stable. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the recliner could be more comfortable. Other than that, this hotel is great.

This hotel was recommended to me by a local colleague for its proximity to my business point (Fort Belvoir). It was definitely close to the Fort. I would call it adjacent. It was your basic hotel room, and the desk staff was polite. There were doggie treats and a water bowl in the lobby (?). However. This is not a...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night after attending a funeral in the area. Check-in was smooth and the price was good. We didn't need a luxury hotel, just a nice, clean room for the night. The room itself would be nice for a business traveller as it had a full kitchen: full size refrigerator, 2...
