We stayed at this hotel last week for 4 days during our trip to Washington DC. We arrived at 2:00 pm and our room was ready. Check in was easy & fast. We got a room facing the inside of the hotel which was nice & quiet. Left bags in the room and took the hotel van to the Metro.... More

We moved my daughter into her dorm last week and we stayed at the Comfort Inn Ballston. It was clean, close to her school and in walking distance to some nice restaurants, the movies and shoppping. Is also easy access to the highways or Metro to get to DC for the area attractions. Love that they give you two types... More

This hotel is a great location for the traveler that wants to spend most of their time in downtown DC. The breakfast was good and the room was ok. Everyday I would come back from the cleaning crew being in there i would still find cups and straws that we didn't even use on the floor under the side of... More

It's a real comfortable hotel, with nice basic facilities. They have hourly shuttles till the metro. Breakfast is basic but nice. Also if the difference of prices is too much between hotels near union station and china town. This hotel is very far from the union station which has maximum sight seeing tours bus stops.

Very Clean hotel, rooms are a nice size, beds were super comfy. Only ate breakfast one day, wasn't to my liking. They have a waffle maker, cereal, eggs, sausage, and pastries. Harris Teeter Market 4 mins away with car. Clean and safe neighborhood will stay again.

The 4 days that we spent at the Ballston were wonderful. The staff is very helpful and the luggage room that can be used to store your luggage is invaluable. The beds are extremely comfortable. The area is safe to walk in and there are multiple restaurants that are very good and not extremely expensive. The shuttle to the Metro... More

Stayed here three nights while visiting DC with my wife and two daughters. Convenient to Metro and places to eat, even a mall close to the Metro station. Free parking daily and they let you keep your car there until 11 PM after you have checked out. Free breakfast is okay, not great. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. With free parking... More

From the staff at front desk, to excellent bedding, a shuttle to take you to and from the Metro into DC, I'd stay here again and recommend to anyone going to sightsee our nations capital! Best for the money and far less expensive than in the city!

Stayed a week while vacationing in DC. Hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the Metro. Free parking and free breakfast (both hot and cold items) and large rooms. Rooms were comfortable and clean and staff was friendly. Good choice for an affordable stay to visit DC.

We stayed here with four grandchildren while visiting Washington. We spent a long time deciding, and are very happy with our choice. The property is convenient to the Interstate going to the city, a 10-15 minute drive to the parking garage. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and taken care of every day. Free parking was greatly... More
