The check in was quick and easy. The have a shuttle that will take you directly to the metro that runs every hour. The continental breakfast was great! With waffles, eggs, sausage, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cereal, juices, coffee, etc. The room was very clean and nice looking. Typical hotel room arrangement. The staff was wonderful! I was so excited... More

When i was given my room i found a Comfort Inn notebook that contained such information as safety tips, telephone numbers you might need and other useful information. The people at the front desk was very helpful and friendly and polite and they make me want to gladly pray for the staff. The room has nice beds that used 3... More

This property is near all of the many attractions in and around DC. However, even more important, this hotel is less than 5 minutes from my daughters and grand kids. Always clean and quiet. Very helpful,pleasant staff.

First, as an out of towner the hotel was easy to find. The parking garage felt very safe and had ample spots to choose from. The metro was a 15 minute walk which wasn't bad, thank goodness because it was freezing when we visited. There was a safe, small refrigerator and internet access in the rooms. The breakfast was great,... More

I came at a very busy time of year. my mom was in a nearby hospice and I did not know how long I would need to stay. I kept changing my departure date. The friendly staff, particularly Jacob and Edwin at the front desk, far exceeded expectations in helping the lodging end of our stay go seamlessly. They were... More

This hotel was the perfect home base for my family of six while visiting the D.C. area. We had two rooms for a week and they were flawless. The rooms were large and they were very clean. The staff at the hotel is very accomadating and knowledgeable about the area. The hot breakfast included eggs and sausage every morning as... More

We couldn't have asked for a better hotel. We had a group of 50 (students & chaperones) and the management accommodated us in every way. When one of our chaperones' children spiked a fever (on our departure day) the manager let the mom and child stay in the room at no charge until our group was ready to leave--6 p.m.... More

The hotel from the outside does not look like much for a 3 star hotel but looks can be deceiving. The front desk staff was the friendliest staff I have ever encountered in all my travels. Hotel is located in a safe neighborhood that I felt safe walking around at night. The Ballston Metro station is a 10-minute walk but... More

The hotel is old and needs updated. Problems with the plumbing in two rooms, after we had to move from the first. Boiler problems so no hot water for a couple of days. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was decent. Cleanliness was good. Metro is about 1/2 mile so the walk was a little further than most... More

Remember dial-up? That would seem fast compared to the wi-fi here. I travel a bit and this is slowest Internet I've encountered since 1998. Musty, cheesy smell in the hallways. Stayed here on a business trip that someone booked for me, and I would NEVER stay in a Discomfort Inn again. First the toilet broke. Then the light in my... More
