I was here for business and stayed a week. Overall the hotel was serviceable and as a female traveling alone, I felt very safe at the hotel. Pros: The room was clean and always well serviced.

Having been a guest at this hotel since 2004 for stays of several days, usually twice a year, I was very pleased to discover during my most recent stay (Dec. 23-27, 2011) that its breakfast menu had been upgraded since my last stay in June 2011 to include a much better variety of hot and cold options -- a welcome...

Property is older and getting fairly run down but a reasonably short walk from the metro and more expensive hotels. Staff is helpful and polite. Restaraunts are a medium walk or short cab ride away.

Looks can be deceiving. If you only judged this hotel on a drive-by, you'd probably pass it up. And you'd be wrong! Tucked in among brick residences adjacent to the highway, this convenient, clean and surprising upbeat place is a good value. Friendly staff, fast, free Internet access, comfortable rooms, free parking - and quick access to the Interstate. Decent... More

I've stayed at the Comfort Inn-Ballston (Arlington, VA) on several occasions. It's a very affordable stay and perfect for business travelers. It's convenient to DC and the Ballston metro, but at less than half the price of the Ballston hotels. The rooms are neat, clean and efficient. Clean and comfortable, great for those that need to get in and out.... More

A family emergency required a quick trip to the DC area ~ and a short trip became almost 3 weeks.

We stay here because it is convenient to the relatives we are visiting but the lack of maintenance is discouraging. Our last stay was 10/29/11.
