Nice updated place with a decent breakfast. Free shuttle to shopping mall/metro station on the hour. Walk to several restaurants. Free parking. Staff is really friendly. Will def stay here again. Great location to stay and ride the metro in to view the WDC sites.

I lodged in this hotel for three weeks - from the 11th of August and checked out on the 1st of September, 2013. One thing I enjoyed is the friendliness of the receptionist. They are always ready to help and are quite courteous. The location is also close to important places of interest in Arlington. Most of my trips were... More

I spent 3 weeks in this hotel for a business trip to Arlington, VA and the surrounding area. It is so very convenient to many areas in northern VA as well as easy to bop over the river into DC and right near an entrance/exit on i-66. Location is also convenient to walk to restaurants. Local restaurants will deliver to... More

I don't know where the negative reviews came from for this hotel. The room was extra large with 5 of us staying we still had lots of room. The breakfast was above average and the staff are exceptional. The free parking is a big bonus as some hotels in DC charge $40 per night. It is a very pleasant and... More

The room was large and clean. There was a mouse trap behind the TV, but no evidence of vermin were seen.This hotel was constructed in a square with... More

On a recent sight seeing trip to the Wash DC area, we stayed overnight at the Comfort Inn Ballston. The hotel is near the Ballston Metro station so all DC attractions are nearby via the Metro. The staff was very courteous and attentive upon check in and check out. The room was large and fairly luxurious, nice comfortable beds with... More

Train station is 3-4 blocks away, so this would be good cheap location to stay for tourists.. While the breakfast area is very modern, the new renovations are kind of a lipstick on a pig because the halls and rooms smell and the rooms are outdated. The breakfast is low budget, so if you're looking for something health, your options... More

We stayed at this hotel while exploring D.C. It is much cheaper than hotels directly in D.C., and is an easy subway ride to the places we wanted to go. The hotel was clean, safe, and an newly updated.

My GF and I stayed at the Comfort Inn Ballston on Friday, August 9. We were a little worried because it had some bad reviews due to the renovation work going on. When we got there, we were pleasantly surprised that they had just finished the renovations. Start off with plentiful and FREE parking. The same can't be said for... More
