Was visiting DC for vacation and selected this hotel after reviewing options on Tripadvisor.com. This location offered free parking(which is hard to come by in the DC area). The price was half of what I would of spent on a hotel in DC. We drove to DC each day it was a 15 minute drive. This was a transit station... More

looking at the interiors, you would say it is expensive, but it is very close to the ballston commons area. they are renovating, so things are improving every time i visit. given that the price is about 15 or so cheaper than better hotels, one might go for the more expensive ones, but here's a thing to consider. this hotel...

Last minute stay was easily accommodated here. Front desk staff couldn't have been more pleasant or accommodating. The room was average, the chair was definitely old and worn and the carpet was worn, but the bed and linens were extremely comfortable and felt and looked new. The large flat screen tv and the "green clean remote" were nice touches. The... More

I'm not one to write reviews. Its the busiest day of the year and the breakfast room is packed there's a line out the door. Its nine thirty and all the tourists are up late on the day after July 4th and the helpers are slamming the the doors of the breakfast room on the remaining folks while the manager... More

For our visit to Washington DC, we stayed 2 nights at the Comfort Inn Ballston. Conveniently located at the higway in Arlington and with plenty of restaurants on walking distance. The walk to the metro station is 10 minutes with excelent connections to downtown Washington DC, Georgetown, Arlington Nat. cemetery. The hotel offers free parking space for your car and... More

Due to a sudden health issue, I had to find a hotel near VA hospital. because virgina hospitals don't choose to admit patients who need rest and observation. I was grateful that this hotel has a "hospital rate". the staff was very kind and considerate, helping me with bags, though no bell person is present. they helped me find massage... More

I have stayed at this motel countless times. I will be there this week, as well. It is loctaed in the heart of North Arlington, giving it great access to Rt. 66,Lee Highway, Washington Blvd., Arlington Blvd. and Wilson Blvd. It is a quick ride to Washington Reagan Airport, but believe me, the natives,(and I am one) still refer to...

The hotel is just fine, but not really worth it. It is a bit of a walk from the metro. On a nice day, this is not a problem. Not so good when it is raining in DC. Compared to the other hotels in the Ballston Area, this one does not rate so high. I actually changed hotels during my... More

I just recently stayed at this hotel from 6/1 to 6/6. The hotel was very clean and the customer service was excellent. My family was on a vacation with my parents and two teenage daughters . We used the shuttle service from the hotel to the Metro. It was very nice for my parents who are in their 70's. If... More

We spent 7 days/night at the Comfort Inn in Ballston and had a wonderful time. Hotel is being renovated, but no noise or dust. We had an older room, but it was large , and clean. Two beds and sofa bed, micro, fridge and desk. Faced the street and yet the only road noise we heard were a few sirens.... More
