I stay at this location every few weeks and typically arrive late and depart very early. The staff is always very pleasant. The building is older, but the rooms are always clean and tidy. There are a couple of restaurants near by and they have a well stocked mini store in the hotel.
Am usually exhausted by the time I get here and always sleep well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike C Check In
I stay frequently at this hotel on business. Because this is an expense paid directly by my company, checking in can be complicated. But thanks to Anastasia and her helpfulness at the front desk, checking in is not a concern. I've noticed over the years how Anastisia makes every effort to ensure her staff at the front desk is trained to provide a high level of customer service, that I can assure you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Megan 96 Lower end of Holiday Inn Express
The staff was wonderful!!!!!
There was only a very small lobby and breakfast area. Really no place to hang out with a group other than in the rooms.
The toilet shower room was tiny. The plug for the hairdryer didn't work. The hair dryer was attached to the wall. The front desk didn't have an alternate hair dryer to use in another plug. I had to do without a hairdryer or wait for a maintenance man to come. I waited for about 15 minutes and gave up.
There was shampoo and lotion but no conditioner. The shower head was loose in the wall.
I stay at Holiday Inn Express all the time and love them. this one was just not up to the usual standards.

I have stayed in several HI Expres. This one is a bit outdated looks like the cheaper competition but has the HI Express higher price.
(old bathroom, building/room interior colour and material dated.
Excellent and friendly staff.

I have stayed at this property now for work at least 4 times and they always recognize IHG rewards members with a great gift options. Close to everything in the Northern VA area. Great staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Matt43 Internet is very inconsistent
Stayed here twice. First comment is that the Internet is very sketchy. If it works, it doesn't work for long before you start experiencing connection problems with the login credientials for the gateway. The only way I found to resolve this was to disconnect the Ethernet cable, restart the computer, and then reconnect the Ethernet cable, then re-login into the gateway. Sometimes your computer will act sluggish like it was a virus... only it is just this problem.
The other thing I noticed was a fire code violation. It looks as though the hairdryer in my room was broken, so instead of replacing the hair dryer, someone actually cut the GFI plug off of the hairdryer, and wired the hair dryer behind the wallplate directly to the wiring of the outlet. I almost wanted to send a picture to Fairfax, VA code enforcement.

I was very pleased with the Holiday Inn Express Fairfax. The staff was excellent, check-in was a breeze, and the room was very clean (a priority here). The breakfast bar was great, with many choices. I will be staying here again!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gulz Bathroom sink outside the bathroom
All the rooms here have sinks outside the bathroom in the room which makes a little bit of an inconvenience. The room furniture also has stains on them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larrie33 Friendly service; nice breakfast
I especially like Sylvie's friendly welcoming personal greeting at the front desk, even though it's late at night. The staff is very responsive to requests and makes a significant effort to be helpful.
Breakfast has a nice variety of choices- eggs, meat, biscuits (I like the pancake machine!). I stay there every month on a business trip; it's a convenient location for my meetings. Service sets this hotel apart.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mntanmama Good value
We enjoy staying at the HI Express because the beds and pillows are the absolute best! You can truly get a good night's sleep! We felt this particular hotel needed a little "refreshing" in that the carpet and decor seemed a little "shop worn". The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was good (although the sausage was not, which is not typical of our experience). We would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

This was our second stay at this hotel. We stay here when we visit our son and have no complaints. Customer service is excellent. Room was clean. Beds and pillows were ok but that's always a matter of preference. Plenty of hot water for the shower and great water pressure as well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PastorPam Front Desk Staff was great
The front desk staff was great but the cleaning staff left a bit to be desired. We would leave the hotel each day around 10 am and when we returned around 10 at night I would have to go to the desk to ask for coffee, tea and face cloths because none had been left in our room. I didn't even bother to ask for shampoo or soap we just went ahead and bought some. This is not the usual standard for Holiday Inn Express from all my previous experiences.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCG22 Anastasia did a great job
Anastasia did a great job recommending places to eat and directions to my appointment the next day. The northern VA, Washington DC area is a new sales territory for me and she idd a great job making me feel at home and giving directions. I will make this hotel a regular part of my stays when I am in the Northern VA Washington DC area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Momdad4 We will be back.
In location, staff friendliness and comfort...and a great breakfast,
this location worked great for us.
It is located close to Route 66 so you can get to D.C. and the other towns around easily (depending on traffic flow).
The staff ALL greeted us each time we encountered them. We like that.
The rooms have the appointments you would need including
Wi-Fi (hooked in easily).
We have three adult children living close by, so we will be back and we will stay at this Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roscoe1980 Good experience
I appreciate the value of Holiday Inn and always enjoy my experience there. This Holiday Inn was somewhat older and the room quite small. There was no privacy as the sink area was in the room itself and right as you enter the room. This was a functional concern.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LindaNC overall good
Everything was very nice, however the one complaint I had is the towels were not soft or fluffy at all. They made me think of the gym at school! Please select a better grade of towels!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by akw007runner Good business stay
My second time at this property and I it was very pleasant. My only knock on this place was the long check in and the fact that I did not receive my bonus points offered to IHG members like I was supposed to on my account.
I hope this can be fixed because I would like to receive my 500 points.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by amarine Great guest services and comfortable bed
The only downside to the stay was that despite ordering a non-smoking room, there was a smell of lingering, long-standing smoker's room. The staff did offer to move me, but for the short stay and overwhelming fatigue I felt upon arrival, I stayed. It was fine and only noticed it each time I entered the room from the hallway or the steamy shower.
