I have stayed in the Comfort Inn Ballston a few times before. It is always a pleasant experience with friendly professional staff. The rooms I have had have always been clean and bright. I have been fortunate in room location and have always had good views. I recommend this Comfort Inn if you are ever in the DC area and... More

The location is surrounded by family friendly restaurants, walking distance to the mall and ice rink. The hotel is clean and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast area is beautiful and the choices were more than just bagels and donuts. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

This is the 3rd time in 3 years we've stayed at the Comfort Inn Ballston, and boy have they improved this property. The lobby is now clean and contemporary, the breakfast area looked refurbished, but the most noticeable improvements were to the guest room. New everything, and the upgrades are much appreciated...especially the much higher quality bed linens. Each time... More

We've put our family up here every year for the past 7 years when visiting us for the holidays. This year, we had to switch hotels after 2 straight days with no hot water. Repeated complaints to the staff brought about no resolution, as the manager was alway "not answering his phone." The staff is very nice, and they did... More

Dear Mr. Mills, Please accept our sincere apologies for the first unfortunate experience in your seven years of stay with us. We always strive for giving best possible guest services but apparently this Christmas Weekend, the issue in your room could not be taken care of in a timely manner the way it should have been.

Stayed here a week. Room was comfortable and well-maintained. While the breakfast fare was pretty standard stuff, the attention given to maintaining stocks, cleanliness, and freshness was head and shoulders above most hotels in this category. Hats off to the manager and staff. Easy walking distance to the metro and shopping at the Ballston Mall. Several good restaurants in the... More

It's one of the hotels in the 1-mile radius of NSF, so I stayed there when all others were full. The location is good because it's only a 10-min walk to the metro, NSF, and other businesses in the area, but the quality is average. The room and the bedroom were very clean and comfortable, there was a (loud) fridge... More

We always stay at the Comfort Inn Ballston when we are in Arlington. My Husband is handicapped and he especially likes it. The staff are friendly and the hotel is always clean and neat. I would not want to stay anywhere else.
