Where should I spend the night after arriving into Washington, but not necessarily IN Washington?

Looking for recommendations for a nice hotel, inn or B&B near Washington DC, southwards-ish down towards the I95.
My wife and I are flying into Dulles from London in June, picking up a hire car, and driving down for a beach holiday in North Carolina.
We'll be pretty pooped upon arrival, getting in at about 6:00pm. Rather than spend the night in a dreary airport hotel and getting an early start on our drive the next morning, we thought we might be up for a short-ish drive in more-or-less the right direction (south on the I95). We're talking maybe, 30-45 minutes, perhaps an hour's drive from Dulles airport if its worth it.
Is there anywhere nice to spend the night in that range? Are there nice towns within that distance that might have a nice inn or hotel? Even a nice B&B would do. My knowledge of the area is non-existent, so I'm open to all alternatives.
