Four teachers and 37 middle school kids used this place for 4 days/3 nights on a school trip to DC and area. Hotel staff was cooperative, pleasant, and put us in touch with a nighttime security guard. We had a medical emergency during our, and the staff was great in helping us to get assistance. We will definitely stay here... More

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. The rooms are clean, but the mattresses sag in the middle. One of the two elevators would not stop at the lobby. I mentioned this to the front desk when I finally got to the... More

If you are one of my fellow Road Warriors with tight travel budget, you should consider Comfort Inn in Ballston. To be fair, I rate this hotel 3.5 as it is still a little notch below "Very Good"; however, the hotel does provide me with what I need: Clean bed and good size room, free internet access, and a relatively...

We always stay here when we visit our daughter. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean, comfortable and reasonable. A nice self service breakfast is provided and parking is free. It's in walking distance of the Ballston Metro so it's easy to go into DC.

We planned a 7-day trip to Washington, DC and were on a budget. The guide book rated this hotel adequate but the price was right. I was pleasantly surprised to find the hotel much more than adequate. Clean, quiet and a nice staff. The breakfast was good. Best of all, only a 10 minute walk to the Metro in a... More

I've stayed at this hotel about 80 nights each year for the past several years. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The hot breakfast is good, too. Staff is friendly and accomodating. The location is great! I've never had a problem. Best hotel in the area for a fair rate!
