We called the front desk and with the help of the Housekeeping ( Mr.Michael B.) we were... More

Good hotel! Very clean and really close to the Clarendon/ DC area,taking an uber was really cheap to get to the bars, plenty of parking which is free. Overall the experience was good. I will definitely stay there again for my next weekend out.

Everything was clean and neat. No issues. Simple check in. As expected for price range. We only stayed one night so we did not utilize pool or gym. The pool looked remotely worn down but not terrible. The gym was small but had a variety of machines.

I wanted to love this hotel. The building is unique and quaint, located convenient to the airport and Pentagon City. Once inside, the charm wore off quickly. The staff is uninterested, one of two elevators was consistently being used by construction crews which also cluttered the hallways both physically and verbally. The carpet in my room was soggy, there were... More

A hotel is only as good as its beds and showers. Both were wonderful at Comfort Inn. My husband and I stayed for a great relaxing night after a day of walking. Free breakfast was impressive. There was a variety of foods including eggs and sausage, cereal, waffles, muffins and others.

This is place is not the fanciest, but it does have free wifi, free breakfast, and free parking (rare in the DC area). The Metro is a 10-15 min walk away. They do have a shuttle to the Metro every hour. Our room was clean and well stocked. The housekeeping staff starts early - they knocked at 8am one morning... More

I recently stayed at Comfort Inn Ballston, while attending a week long training at the Westin Arlington Gate. Why would I stay 1/2 mile away, when the conference is at a hotel, you ask? Well, the Comfort Inn was much more affordable, and the walk was enjoyable (less the rainy weather a few days). Also, there is a free shuttle... More

Convenient, comfortable, and good value. Breakfast is a nice feature. I had problems with the air conditioning. The management gave me a credit for the inconvenience.It is a $25 cab ride to the hotel and a$12 Uber ride back. It is not very convenient to the Metro but there is a shuttle.

So you are visiting DC, you are busy sightseeing, walking, eating etc. You want a comfortable place to stay at a reasonable price. Comfort Inn Ballston. The price is right, the parking is FREE, the location is convenient, the Metro is 3 blocks away, 15 minutes to the Mall, they throw in breakfast (you know the typical hotel type), staff... More
