This is the best location for anyone traveling with Amtrak's Auto Train. Breakfast was good and the rooms were nice. All staff I encountered during my stay were happy and friendly. Will stay again if taking the train.

We really want to compliment Jane who handled the breakfast and whole breakfast area. She always had a smile for everyone and was a willing to aid and served with a smile and friendliness. She kept things filled and tables cleaned. We were surprised at some of the messes some visitors left, not only on the tables, but the floors also, yet she cleaned it all up. She listened to everyone and whoever needed something got it taken care of with such a pleasant manner. Even when people did not read the signs and put trash in the recycle container for cans & bottles, she took care of it. We stayed several days & I never saw her w/o a smile for everyone. When she saw my husband struggling with his disability she hurried over to come to our aid. I can not say enough about her. The staff at this location was great, but she was the best, top of the line and needs to be congratulated. We will return.

Your kind and gracious comments regarding the Hotel facilities and the exceptional service and attention your received from Jane are greatly appreciated. Indeed, she is a true service oriented professional. Frankly, my entire team makes my job embarrassingly easy! I have taken the liberty of sharing your comments with Ms.Jane and her supervisor. I have also submitted your compliments as a nomination in our monthly "Ambassador of Hospitality" program.

Excellent Services were provided and the Management staff was very helpful after we had several problems with three of the rooms, the first room had an awful mildewy smell so we complained and the front desk clerk was very kind and gave us another room. The second room however was great but we discovered the flipper on the toilet did not work, so again we had to call down to the front desk to request another room, she gracefully gave us another room and we finally were able to get a good night's rest. Last but not least, the location of this property was perfect regards to using the Auto Train, just two minutes down the street.

Room Tip: Higher floors less noise

I am writing this from my second room at Comfort inn Lorton. The first room was on the 3rd floor, which had an odor that can only be described as"dirty diaper-esqe." In addition to the UN fragrant fragrance, the room was dirty-complete with mold in the bathroom. Front desk moved me to 2nd floor which is much better, though only considering how bad the first room was.
The only reason we are still here is because we had a bear of a drive from Connecticut and are too tired to go through the hassle of finding and moving to another hotel.
As a positive, we are scheduled for the auto train tomorrow and this place is a stone's throw away.

Rooms were very typical, but quite comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. Best of all was the service from the desk clerk - LISA. She was friendly, pleasant, very competent and helpful. - Best asset of the hotel!
Unfortunately one has to go through all these hoops of singing in to some site just to get a compliment to the hotel or the staff. There is not direct site on which this can be done and I do not normally give out email addresses. So this review may not get to where it should go.

We stopped here during our trip from Miami to New York, and figured we would stay because of the reviews. Our first thought was wow, this is nowhere near updated like the Comfort Inn we stayed in the night prior in Savannah, GA. The room was typical, it was alright, the bathroom layout was awful, the door completely blocks the shower and no one can be on the toilet if you want to open or close the door. Anyways, the reason I am writing this review is because of the floors/carpet. My daughter is 14 months and loves walking everywhere. We kept her socks on, but soon realized we should have kept her shoes on too. Her light pink socks were brown, just from walking around the room in her socks (mind you, these socks were just put on her after her bath). I think this comfort inn needs to clean or replace all their carpets. Other than that, the a/c was weak, and kept our room very muggy throughout the whole night.

We had just sold our home and needed a place to stay before we drove to our new home many miles away. The Comfort Inn provided a safe, secure, inviting and friendly atmosphere allowing us to rest and relax before our trip. Tony Gravely, the property manager was especially friendly and helpful during our stay. It is a very fine hotel wiht a professional and attentive staff. We will stay there again if we are ever in the Lorton, VA area.
