Very good location and relatively a comfortable place. The breakfast needs to be improved by diversifying the meat protein menu.

Do not stay here
We frequently stay in Fairfax as we have family there, This is the first time that we have stayed at this hotel. It is one of the closer hotels to our family. We only have two requirements, a good night's sleep and a decent shower in the morning. The first night there we had truly obnoxious neighbers and the walls must be paper thin between rooms. The worst was that there was very little water pressure and the shower was cold. No possibility of using the pool showers as the pool does not open until 5 pm. I did complain to the desk clerk but they did not even bother to check it out. The second morning there we went to our daughter's gym and were able to get a great shower there. We did like the location, but next time we will drive a little further to a better hotel.

Whoever took the pictures used to advertise this location should get a giant raise. The hotel is old. It looks like it hasn't been upgraded since the late 70's. I don't feel like it was dirty, just outdated and needs an upgrade in room amenities as well as the air conditioning system.

Stay away from this hotel. Very dirty, run down, and just disgusting. Roll away bed looked to be from at least 30 years ago. Carpet was sticky, bathroom floor was sticky, and chair in our king suite w jacuzzi was so gross we couldn't sit in it. Charges $25 for roll away bed. King bed was comfy, but air conditioning unit sounded literally like a car engine was running right in the room. In room jacuzzi had a dial near the room door that you had to turn to acquire more time for jets to run. So yes, if you want more time be prepared to get up and get out to turn the dial. The toilet is in what looks to be a closet. The shower has a curved door that turns it into what looks like some sort of space capsule...our 7 yr loved that but it made it very dark in the shower even with the light. There is also no easy way to change without the rest of the family seeing you unless you go into the toiket room. The ceiling above the entrance to the pool is falling apart. Pool was actually clean and hot tub was fine. Breakfast was fine too. Would never stay here again, definitely not up to the same quality of the Comfort Inn's we have previously stayed in. Judging from the counter attacks management has left in response to reviews I don't believe customer service is their priority. We had to change our reservation and it was quite an effort to get proof they wouldn't charge for the canceled night...even though we followed their policy exactly as stated.

We stayed overnite at the hotel and it met our expectations for our stay. However in order to get to the elevator there are steps to negotiate. We found this difficult since we are seniors with knee problems.
