Comfort Inn University Center

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was clean, the rooms were a great size, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and answered any questions you had. Great spot for a hotel, everything was down the street. It's a great place for everyone and everything.

We were in Fairfax visiting a friend. We chose this hotel because it was close to many wonderful restaurants, Asian supermarkets and bakeries in the same vicinity. However, it turned out to be a great choice because Comfort Inn lived up to its name. Our double room was clean and spacious. Ditto the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. There was even a mini kitchenette (with coffee-maker, microwave and a stove!) in the room. The front desk assistants were nice and so were the housekeepers. Breakfast was provided but we slept in after a long drive from Indiana. We would definitely stay at Comfort Inn University Center again if we were to visit Fairfax in the near future.

It was comfortable for the night. Air conditioning was too loud for me.

The carpet kind of smelled but the room had a full kitchen which was nice

arrived quite late, all went well, clean, easy to access

very busy hotel right near downtown fairfax. Good breakfast, clean rooms and friendly service. Parking lot very small, difficult to find spots.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting for Christmas. It was a great location and it seemed like it had been remodel. Room was clean and fairly updated. I would stay here again the next time we visit.

The hotel was in a decent location and a good hotel for the cost. Will stay here again for my next business trip.

Good value nice hotel for the money during my stay for const job in the area

Hotel is alright jus didn't have new sheets on beds when we rerund room was nice size n staff was ok I would return

Hotel staff was nice, breakfast was ok. Rooms are worn and a little dirty. Fire alarm went off in the middle of the night at 2AM, didn't get it turned off for a while. Prob below average.

My main reason for picking this hotel was the advertised free shuttle to the metro. I was told at the front desk that despite advertisements on this site, the shuttle was only Monday-Friday...when the majority of my trip was on a weekend. There are many hotels cheaper and closer to D.C than this hotel without a shuttle...if you are going on a weekend and need to use the metro, skip this hotel and go to one closer.

We were in this hotel 2 nights June 13-15, 2012. We like almost everything. Very good hotel for this price. It is really free shuttle from hotel to Vienna/Fairfax metro station - last Washington metro station on "orange" line -15 minutes driving from metro to hotel. It takes around 45 minutes to downtown of Washington on metro (metro is perfect; especially if compare with NY subway). But price for round trip metro ticket from Vienna/Fairfax to Smithsonian metro is $11.50 ! :( But any way it is better to use metro compare with own car. Traffic in rush hours is terrible!!! Continental breakfast is good. There are refrigerator, microwave and coffee-maker in the room, but unfortunately it was not security safe box in the room. There is good clean pool inside hotel. It is GOOD HOTEL for short time vacation!

Positives: Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean and had all the basics. Negatives: Location was a little awkward. Towels were cheap and scratchy. Overall: Good value for a business traveler.

Everything seemed average and dated, in fair condition. My room was a little cold and the bathroom was colder. I stayed there for two days. By the second day the room was comfortable and the bathroom was still a little cold. It was unusually cold in VA the two days I was there. I still thought it was a good value.

It was sufficient. Clean, but cold.

They assigned my to the lousy room next to the elevator. Noise all night long.

visited wiht family

I highly recommend this hotel. The helpful staff, comfortable rooms and great location are wonderful! Comfort Inn University Center is also an environmental friendly facility. In addition, the hotel provides a shuttle service for transport to and from the Vienna Fairfax Washington Metro station. All this, plus reasonable rates and a good rest, for people and pets! Thank you!

This is a very basic hotel at the very last stop on the orange Metro line. The hotel shuttle folks were very helpful about getting us to the places we needed to go, but we usually spent 20-30 minutes at the Metro station in the evening waiting for pick-up, even when we called 30 min. ahead. Free breakfast is helpful when traveling, but apple juice one morning was nearly pure water, next day they were out of pepper.
