I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. My first thought was that location was not good, kind of shoehorned in off the highway. There was no easy way to walk to the metro or to walk anywhere really. However the shuttle service from the hotel to the metro was top notch, the drivers really gave 110% to get you to... More

We stayed here for our first trip to DC. I was delighted by our room - it was a true actual suite with a door between our room and the kid's room! Hooray! Upon walking into the room there is a small bathroom (with toilet/sink). Beyond the bathroom is a room with a pull-out couch, desk, chair, TV and fridge... More

We are so happy to hear that your enjoyed staying in one of our suites. So many hotels claim to have suites which are really one room 'studio' suites. You noted there was no bath tub in the full bathroom of the suite so I wanted to let you know that of our 44 one bedroom suites, 13 have bath... More

Maintenance is lacking. Our room door would not open without kicking it. Only one elevator was working for at least 12 hours without the front desk being aware, resulting in a long line of guests after breakfast waiting to get on, indeed out into the lobby in full view of the front desk personnel who did nothing about it until...

Katharine, Please accept my apology for the problems you experienced with the door to the room you were assigned and the issue with one of our elevators. Maintenance resolved the problem with the alignment of the door to the guest room. I wish the elevator issue was easier, our front desk staff should have been aware of the issue as... More

I have to agree with many other reviews in that this is the best Choice family hotel I've ever stayed at. I was lucky enough to have a true suite with separate bedroom and living room, was perfectly clean and Wi-Fi was fast enough to get some work done. Staff was polite and check-in/check-out was perfect. Breakfast offering was excellent... More

This Comfort Inn and Suites lived up to our expectations. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was actually one of the best I have experienced at the Choice chain. There are lots of shops and surprisingly good restaurants nearby. Staff is professional and courteous. The one flaw? The suites are all King suites - that is,... More

Just left today from a 3 night stay. Hotel is very nice, quiet, & clean & staff is very friendly. Complimentary shuttle will take you to the Metro (5 min. drive), which will get you to various areas of DC in about 30 min. Overall great location as right in front of I95. For area & price you pay (with... More

Stayed there over Thanksgiving. Nice facility, and very nice staff. I would rate those characteristics between a 4 & 5 on a scale of 5 being the best. The neighborhood was a little rough. The rate was pricey for the neighborhood. Knowing the facility I would return.
