The room we had was large and clean. Included was a microwave and refrigerator. We found the staff at the desk to be helpful. The breakfast was typical fare for Comfort Inns. It was sufficient for us. The Metro is within 10 minutes and the motel has a parking garage below the motel. I liked this feature the best. Since... More

I stayed at this hotel with two friends and we had a double queen bed room. To be honest, it's not like we had a totally bad time there, but on the whole, it was a weird experience due to several issues. In all fairness, I have to say upfront that the room was huge and the bathroom big enough.... More

Well, Our room was on the top floor, and it was okay. There was a short thunderstorm, and our room started leaking in 4 different places, and we were immediately moved to a different room. The location to the Metro is good--more of 10 min walk than a 5 min walk. You can cut through a residental area which is... More

Found the Comfort Inn Ballston ok for my husband and I and our two boys. Hotel is a little old but rooms are spacious. Had two doubles and a full sofa sleeper in our standard room. Always like the micro/fridge and we had double vanities which is always nice. Close to walk to the Ballston Metro to catch the Orange... More

We recently stayed here and to our surprise, it was great. We got stranded in the snow storm and so spent a lot of time in the room. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was spacious, had recently been remodeled and very clean. We asked for a room off the court yard, got it, so there was no... More

We booked 2 nights here Marathon weekend since my friend was running. It was exactly what we needed. We got adjoining rooms, which made it feel like an apartment when the doors were open...and the king room had a living room which was great to hang out in. Free parking and internet. Breakfast was okay...all we really needed was coffee... More

I stayed at this hotel for a four day business trip. It was a renovated property that was comfortable for the time that I was there. The room was spacious and clean. The air conditioner worked fine and kept the room cool. There was cable and free wireless internet connection. The bathroom was clean with a few amenities. At check-in... More

I can't see why this hotel rated so poorly. Cheaper than most of the hotels in the area. Free parking and internet. The location is Ballston, across the river from DC, hwy intersection, near the mall and in a safe area. Metro is about a mile away, but the bus stop is ajacent. A 50+ vintage renovated and clean.

I stayed here for two nights (May 23rd and 24th) and the hotel was great. The location is great, only about 4 miles from all the major DC attractions. Free above and below parking. My room was warm and inviting and included a mini fridge and microwave. The bed was super comfortable. A free simple continental breakfast which has waffles,... More

We had a nice room facing a quiet courtyard. Others face noisy street so ask for a quiet one. It's half a mile to Metro station, shops & restaurants which is a drag if you have to do it too often.
