Clean and updated which are the most important things we appreciated here. The breakfast was first rate; scrambled eggs and good coffee. A few details kept it from being 5 starts; balky remote control and hot water controls in the shower, but this was excellent value for the money and if I could give it 4 and a half stars... More

I researched alot of hotels outside of DC while preparing for our vacation. I wanted something reasonable priced and close to the metro. The website for this Comfort Inn stated they had a free shuttle that went to the Metro station every hour which sounded great to me. We would be staying at this hotel for 3 nights and our... More

I completely depended on this website when booking a hotel for our vacation to Washington D.C. The hotel was very good and I'd definitely stay here again. We were able to get a great rate for one of the suites in the hotel. The staff was very friendly when I checked in & out. The room was clean and with... More

This was the second time that I have stayed at the Comfort Inn Ballston. It is a 10-15 minute walk from NSF which was perfect. On both occasions the rooms were great. Clean and well kept. The complementary breakfast started the morning off with bang. It is a great value if you are going to be in the DC area... More

I needed to stay in Arlington, VA for an overnight business trip. My two key parameters were that the property was within walking distance to my office and reasonably priced, this Comfort Inn ticked both boxes. It definitely wasn't the nicest hotel that I've stayed at, and the property did show a little wear and tear, but the staff were... More

Let's start my daughter's lovely Wedding Day Weekend with the derelict street people sleeping outside the Comfort Inn Ballston at 2 Am when we checked in. Two of them fled into the lobby never to be seen again. Charming breakfast the following morning. Watch the surly help squeeze the so-called scrambled eggs out of a plastic bag (right in front...

We spent a few days here waiting for Pepco to reconnect power to our home after a storm. Ample under-cover parking, a nice room with everything clean and working and good maid service, and a choice of decent places to eat within walking distance. Beds are small for couples, so make sure your partner likes you. Other than that, all... More
