The room was big, the bed was comfortable, but the bathroom was not the cleanest. Location is good, close to metro and restaurants. Free parking was nice. The workout room is in the basement parking structure, which is odd. Breakfast had a good variety. The shuttle to/from the metro only transports 10 people at a time so we walked. The... More

although not an imposing building, this is a fine motel to stay at while in Washington, DC. The facility has been renovated since the last time I visited. Friendly staff, good breakfast, and close connect to the interstate and the Metro. I will stay again.

I picked the room based on room tips on Trip Advisor. Away from the lift and ice dispenser and overlooking the parking lot. It was a great room. 1. Breakfast was good or rather, it was amazing. They had everything that I can think of. (muffins\donuts\bread\bagel\jams\spreads\peanut butter\sausage\egg\2 types of waffles\fruit juice\ 3 types of coffee\yogurt \cereals\fruits ) 2. The manager... More

This hotel has been recently updated and the rooms are very comfortable, spacious and clean. The beds were wonderful and the free parking is a plus for the DC area. The hotel has a convenient Custis Memorial Pkwy I-66 access for driving into DC (6.1 miles) 13 minutes away . We will definitely stay there again when we visit DC... More

We stayed here over the Easter weekend at a very good rate. There were cheaper and higher standard hotels (Eg: Courtyard, HI express etc.) for about the same price. But none of them offered the three things that we were looking for this stay which were location within 15 minutes from DC, free parking and free breakfast. We got all... More

I lived in Arlington back when this hotel was built, maybe in the late 60s or in the 70s so I remember its construction. I usually stayed in another nearby hotel on trips to Arlington but that hotel now charges for parking. The main reason I chose this Comfort Inn over others in the area is that it does not... More

Stayed here for one night on a trip to Washington DC. It was one of the few places that offers free parking. We arrived at 3:00 p.m. on check in day, our room was ready. I was suprised at how clean and new everything was and I only paid 80.00 for the night. I would strongly recommend this hotel for... More

The price is pretty cheap considering that it's location. The staff was very nice. I needed to print out something in around 11p.m. They helped me print that out and were very patient. The room was pretty comfortable. And the breakfast was good as well. And it also has free parking lot, which was very helpful for us. Generally, it... More
