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.

Me and my 3 daughters recently stayed at Comfort Inn Ballston. I found the rooms spotless. I loved the inside access to rooms. Great free parking, good breakfast, loved the waffle maker. We felt safe in this location. Free Micro and Fridge on request. Staff was very helpful. About 1/2 mile to Metro, we drove to Mall and parked in... More

The Comfort Inn Ballston is a good choice for someone who is looking to save money but still be in a good location. The hotel was much better than I thought it was going to be. The lobby, hallways and rooms were decorated nicely and were generally clean. The hotel had lots of free parking. The breakfast was decent with... More

Stayed their for business for 20 days and paid for 11 people in 7 rooms. Did not get any help or discount for that. The General Manager was arrogant and rude. Rest of the staff ok, the best are the Arabs on night shift. Rooms not cleaned very well and many days only at noon or later. Small space for... More

Card key would not work to different rooms. Programming problems. Clerk was clueless on what to do. Comfort Inn corporate was not helpful. Hard to believe they do not a manual override (like a real key) to let people in rooms. Have waited over an hour after arriving at 2:30 am. and a long day traveling from the west coast.... More

We were more than pleased with this hotel. At barely $100 a night we felt this a bargain. We had previously stayed in another Arlington hotel three weeks before (which was also good) but it was more than double the price. The parking is easy and free, the hotel is in a safe and clean neighbourhood, and is only 5-8... More

The room was fine...my son's orthodontic retainer was left on the nightstand wrapped in a paper towel. The maid must have thought it was trash & threw it out on Fri. I let front clerk know bright & early (checked out 7:10 AM on Sat) but was told to wait to hear from Manager on Monday. I called him &... More

The showers' water pressure was extremely low, I had to shower twice as long as normal to rinse off. There was plenty of water pressure at the sink and for the bathtub, however once you switched to shower it magically disappeared. You could hear the pipes moan as the water was choked off by the ultra low volume showerhead. I... More

Spartan, plain, but clean, comfortable, and in good shape. Not someplace you'd go as a destination hotel, but for business types needing a place to sleep, or someone with family business in the area, it's a fine value. Closet is more an open alcove, but the room is good sized (two queen beds), wireless internet included in the price (unlike... More
