Comfort Inn is not the brand it once was. So many Comfort Inns are run down nowadays - it seems Choice Hotels is more interested in collecting fees and royalties on all of their hotels in each of their brands and keeping them in the system than insisting they be kept up. This Comfort Inn is one of the better... More

Convenient location just minutes to DC, Arlington area, etc. but not as expensive as the downtown options. The free parking and free breakfast are an extra bonus. The hotel is older and shows some age but still clean & acceptable (although nothing fancy). The room was basic and did have some sound intrusion from the hallway. In room WiFi was... More

This Comfort Inn is in need of some updating. That said, it was clean and that is what I value most. Prices are reasonable. Location is great, close to the Ballston subway station. Parking is free and you can have covered or uncovered. They also have a van that will transport you to the Ballston station if you would like.... More

Great location for a hotel. Close to tourist attractions but just far enough to get a restful night. Hotel was clean, comfortable and spacious. Staff were very congenial and very volunteering with advice on things to see and do (or eliminate from list).WiFi was available Our room as the back so it was very quiet.

The hotel location is very good with the Ballston-MU station nearby and right near I-66 for easy access. Although the hotel offers free rides to the station, it was just as easy to walk to the station (about 5 blocks/10 minutes). The room overlooked the inner courtyard/parking lot and it was very quiet, and the general maintenance of the room... More

This is the place we stay when we visit DC. It is very close to a metro stop (10 minute walk or they have a shuttle). Clean room, great breakfast, good service. Rates are very good, and parking is not charged extra.

I was very impressed with this hotel. The room was large and well maintained with all the amenities I needed. It was in a great location for access to downtown DC, particularly the Kennedy Center which was only about a 10 minutes drive from the hotel. The breakfast was the standard breakfast for Comfort Inns these days with a large... More

I have stayed previously in the Washington downtown area where room rates are high and parking $30 plus daily. The Comfort Inn Ballston is a great alternative. Room rates are quite reasonable and parking is free and on site in a covered area. The hotel is high quality, clean and bright with two floors and two elevators. Corridors are well... More

The Comfort Inn in Ballston is ideally located to explore Washington DC. Shuttle service to the Metro or 10 minute walk. Price is outstanding for the area with free parking. Choice of breakfast foods better than other Comfort Inn or Suites with more fruits and yogurts and no water down juice. Staff is very nice!
