Whether you’re visiting Woodbridge, Virginia, as a peaceful jumping-off point for visiting the sights of neighboring Washington DC or taking a quick business meeting at nearby Quantico, there’s a huge selection of convenient accommodations that are both budget- and family-friendly, without having to sacrifice style or comfort. Here are our picks for the best hotels in Woodbridge, Virginia – bookable on Culture Trip.
Right off I-95 and minutes from the shops at Potomac Town Center, this Hilton Garden Inn offers guests everything you’ll need for a comfortable, relaxing stay in Woodbridge. The on-site restaurant and an indoor pool mean that after a long day’s drive, you won’t have to find something for dinner or to entertain the kids. But if you do have some energy, this convenient location has you right next to Wegmans, the legendary East Coast grocery store chain. Shop their incredible selection and then whip up fun nibbles in your room with the in-room microwave and mini-fridge. In nice weather, you can even take advantage of the outdoor patio area with seating for your snack sesh.
Need a pet-friendly hotel in Woodbridge? Check out the TownePlace Suites Potomac Mills Woodbridge. Not only do they welcome your pups, but you can choose from a studio or one-bedroom suite – each features stainless kitchens with a fridge, stovetop, dishwasher and microwave. But if you don’t feel like cooking, lots of casual and sit-down dining options are minutes away, as well as favorite shopping spots like Ikea and Target. When you get back, don’t miss the indoor salt-water heated pool, as well as the free hot breakfast.
If your trip to Woodbridge has anything to do with Virginia’s largest outlet mall, then book your stay at the Comfort Suites Near Potomac Mills. These modern, spacious suites are within walking distance from Potomac Mills and its exciting shopping, including brands like Banana Republic, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom Rack and more. And since the Comfort Suites is located right off I-95, you’ll still only be a 20-minute drive to Quantico Marine Corps base. After a day of exploring, relax in the indoor heated pool, read a book in the cozy multi-story lobby, and then turn into your thoughtfully designed room, featuring privacy walls that divide the sleeping area and the sofa/chill zone.
If you’re traveling on I-95 with your pups, the Homewood Suites by Hilton Woodbridge is a convenient pet-friendly option, welcoming dogs up to 50lb (23kg) in each room. This highly rated hotel also prides itself on being especially military family friendly, thanks to the proximity to Quantico Marine Corps base, free hot breakfast and flexible layouts like the one- or two-bedroom, two-bathroom suites. When evening arrives, you can take advantage of the complimentary Evening Social – offered Monday to Thursday – or stroll over to the interesting restaurants at Stonebridge, where you can choose from Nando’s Peri-Peri, Dok Khao Thai Eatery, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill and much more.
The Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Woodbridge has everything you need for a budget-friendly and efficient stay in Northern Virginia. The indoor pool is heated, and open until 10pm. The fitness center is open even later, and you’ll find cardio equipment from a recumbent bike to a treadmill to get your heart rate pumping. All rooms have a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker for convenience – but if making coffee seems too strenuous for a vacation morning, don’t worry as a full breakfast is included. For dinner, walk over to Chuy’s, a family-friendly Tex-Mex restaurant literally outside your door. Then curl up in your comfy room – the suites have a sofa – and make the most of that free HBO.
This classy hotel offers modern guest rooms featuring a sophisticated color palette, a welcoming lobby with lounge seating for watching the game, and an impressive outdoor fire pit for toasting s’mores on. The central location right off I-95 puts you less than a 10-minute walk to a number of casual food options, like Chipotle, Panera and Chick-fil-A. But you don’t have to leave – the on-site Bistro offers healthy, fresh and delicious options for breakfast, including Starbucks coffee.
If you’re traveling with kids, definitely check out the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson Potomac Mills Woodbridge. First, you can promise waffles for breakfast in exchange for 30 minutes without squabbling. Second, if your kids drive a hard bargain, you can reveal that the Country Inn & Suites has complimentary cookies and hot chocolate in the lobby 24/7 – they also have coffee for the grown-up kids. Let the kids work off their energy by splashing in the cute indoor pool, or run a few laps around the nearby Potomac Mills, Virginia’s largest outlet mall, before everyone crashes on the sofa for some favorite shows before bed.
SpringHill Suites Potomac Mills Woodbridge offers residence-inspired studio suites, which is another way of saying you basically get your own apartment. The separate sleeping and living areas are a huge perk when you’re traveling with others, but don’t want to spring for two rooms. Also, the refrigerators, microwaves, workspace and pull-out sofa make longer stays extra comfortable. There’s an indoor pool, on-site convenience store and even a relatively unheard-of perk: free laundry for guests. Also, you can’t beat the location, just minutes from the Potomac Mills Outlet Mall.
Many hotels offer the same amenities. Free breakfast, indoor pool, microwave in the room – and the Sleep Inn Woodbridge has also got these covered. But what makes the Sleep Inn brand different is that they are truly committed to your sleep, wanting you to catch as many z’s as possible when you stay with them. Rooms are a modern retreat, and you can also download the Sleep Inn Relax Melodies app, so you’ll be drifting away to dreamland in no time. You’re going to need your sleep, as this location is only a 10-minute walk to Potomac Mills. Rest up.
