Next summer my husband will be at Quantico and we (me & kids) are planning to stay out there for a month to visit him and tour the VA area. I'm looking for suggestions on where we could stay that is relatively near Quantico and is a good place to stay with kids and that has vacation rental properties.

Any suggestions of where to and not to stay would be appreciated.

Thanks

You might check the Lake Anna area. Maybe put a post on Craig's List or check with some of the Lake Anna realtors. And Colonial Beach might have something.

There is a very nice hotel on base if you are eligible to use it: Quantico MCCS - The Crossroads Inn (http://www.quantico.usmc-mccs.org/TCAQ/The_Crossroads_Inn.htm - broken link)

There really isn't a market in this area for vacation rental properties. Someone did post about Lake Anna and that is the only thing that comes to my mind. It is generally hotels and such.

You might get a hit on www.vrbo.com (http://www.vrbo.com - broken link) for a home rental by owner in this area, but most people come and stay in a hotel short term.

Have they renovated it recently? We had reservations there for the entire month of July in 2006. We stayed the first night and had to leave. We ended up staying in a hotel that was more than twice as much money, but well worth it.

Not sure if the OP (or anyone else) wants a full review, but the biggest problem for us was the cockroaches in our room. There were (many) other issues, as well, though.

Interestingly, even though we were booked a full month, and only stayed one day, no one from management bothered to inquire why we were so anxious to get out of there and pay twice as much to stay at a different hotel. That makes me think they were fully aware how disgusting their establishment was.
