Recent guest reviews

The people who work at this location are wonderful! The folks at the front desk were extremely pleasant and helpful! The room was beautifully decorated and had a homey/cozy warm feeling to it and was immaculate! Thank you for a super pleasant stay!

The check-in process was handled smoothly and everyone working there was nice. The hall was rather dark and large cleaning carts were present. The room was fine. Everything was clean and worked the way it should. Pleased with stay here. Shares a parking lot with Red Lobster. Although there's not a traffic light at the exit, I was able to make left hand turns when needed.

the hotel was pleasant. the room was clean and comfortable. the breakfast was ok. for what we spend it was a good deal.

If your looking to stay somewhere that's affordable and in a central location to Northern VA then this is the hotel.

Basically, this is exactly what I want from a hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is unfailingly polite, free Internet (WiFi and Ethernet cables in rooms) works great, and the free breakfast is top-notch. It's location makes it convenient to much of Northern Virginia and D.C. There are a zillion restaurants nearby. Only one tiny complaint: during breakfast, they had both TVs tuned to Fox News. I realize many people like Fox News, but I find it repulsive - that is, it's a very polarizing medium. A hotel shouldn't have anything that divisive in the common breakfast room (I wouldn't want to see MSNBC on there either). Something nice and bland like Good Morning America. And in fact, a "TV-free" zone for the breakfast room would be awesome. But as you can tell, when I'm whining about the TV channel choice in the breakfast room, there's not much bad to say.

I liked the location of this hotel. Friendly staff and clean room. I enjoyed my stay.

I enjoyed the comfortable bed, had a great night's sleep as well as the breakfast in the morning.

The room is very clean and well organized. It's very quite at night although it just besides Route 50. Room is not very big, not suitable for long term stay (over a week).

The hotel had very good customer service and the room was very nice.

I was in town overnight and the Holiday In Express was perfect for my business travel needs. We felt safe and secure, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. What more can you ask for?

Our room was clean and simple. There were not any really great or really bad things. I was worried about it being clean after reading other reviews. Our room was clean and I had No complaints. We stayed 4 nights and the room was a little small. Some updates are needed. It was simple yet clean

The 4th floor used to be a smoking floor and i was placed there. I had requested non-smoking and this was a problem for me. They were happy to relocate me to the 3rd floor that has always been non-smoking and the room was fine. Clean and comfortable

The staff was extremely friendly and the price was very reasonable. The hotel was very clean and orderly. This is not a very large hotel. The craftsmanship of the hotel was not nice. The wall paper was pealing in several locations. The paint on the walls was painted onto the wallpaper in a lot of places and the trim work was not cut at the correct angles or attached to the walls fully.

Breakfast was ordinary. Had hoped it was closer to the Metro. Had to take bus or Cab ($10 one way). Stained (not dirty) carpet.

Convenient to areas I travelled to. Clean, with courteous staff. Great value for the money.

ok

I felt like the hotel was over priced for the services. The staff was not too friendly. The breakfast was kind of lame. The rooms were nice. The internet was slow and the television was horrible.

beds comfortable and roomy. Bathrooms clean with good water pressure

This was our third stay at the Holiday Inn Express Fairfax. Each visit has been delightful, and we always book only this hotel when in the area.

Great hotel for the price
