The Best Western Aquia / Quantico Inn (Stafford Virginia)is located very conveniently, at the intersections of 610 and Jefferson Highway (Route 1), with the added bonus of easy access to and from I-95 North and South bound. There are plenty of eateries in the area, both on Route 1 and on 610, as well as other shopping options and fuel.
This was our first time staying at this location, we have stayed at other Stafford VA Hotels prior. We decided to try this as it was only a 1 night visit to the area and the price was more than competitive for the area. It is a hotel where the room doors face the exterior and when entering or leaving your room, you step out onto an exterior common sidewalk, typically the kind of place I recommend travelers do not stay for safety reasons. I much prefer a hotel with a common interior corridor to access the room for safety reasons. That said, this location seemed safe enough with virtually no trees surrounding the building and limited obstructions blocking your view, making it difficult for individuals to hide in waiting or sneak up behind.
Check in was relatively easy, the Front Counter personnel took their time to review and explain the agreement we were about to sign, right down to pointing out that we will be charged if the TV goes missing. It is sad that they have to say that and makes one wonder why. The room we stayed in, room 224 faced away from the highway, overseeing the fields and buildings pictured in their website. I explain that because we thought we were hearing trash trucks and their fast idle feature throughout the night. It turned out it was the wall heater/AC unit cycling on and off making that noise. Rate this as a minor annoyance.
The other features of the room included a divided bath and sink area, a refrigerator in the cabinet (although it was not turned on and we did not need it so we left it off), 2 beds and a chair. There was an ironing board and iron as well as a hair dryer in the room as well as ample number of accessible power outlets for your phone chargers and such. Quite comfortably furnished. We were told there is an exercise room and a pool, which we did not utilize nor did we attempt to locate. We did find an ice machine, tucked away in a room under the stairs, so we could top off our travel cooler.
Morning Breakfast is included in your stay and I found it very acceptable. Several steam trays of breakfast items, 2 waffle makers, yogurts, juices and COFFEE.
With all this stated, the question remains, will I stay there again, ABSOLUTELY. I found the convenience of the location along with easy access to travelers need, coupled with the comfortable rooms made for a rather satisfactory visit. less
