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

From the outside, the hotel seems ... interesting. There is a restaurant/bar that isn't open but still has chairs inside (don't know where the owner is) but when you enter, the hotel is clean, smells great, a beautiful lobby, and wonderful staffers. The associate at the front desk was courteous and told me about the fresh hot breakfast every morning... More

Nice clean room and convenient location. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a varied selection of hot or cold options-a nice surprise! Will definitely stay here again when in the area.

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. WiFi was good and fast enough for my VPN. Location close by bus and Metro (about a 15 minute walk to the station)\ Friendly... More

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. The staff at the hotel was wonderful, the location was excellent as far as being central to much I had to do, the free WiFi was invaluable - and nice to have a METRO stop a short 10 minute walk...
