The Holiday Inn-Arlington at Ballston is less than half a mile from the subway and at the entrance to route I-66, but it is also a well-equipped, clean and commodious hotel. Since it is at the end of Ballston's main street, it is quieter than its bigger, pricier neighbors. The basic king-bed room features an arm chair with an ottoman... More

Just an overnight at this establishment, but the location was just what we hoped for. About a block from the metro store where we purchased our passes, and then downstairs and off to to the mall to tour the monuments. Hotel room was clean and ready when we arrived about 1:30PM and we were allowed to check in without a... More

Stayed here six nights, on the west edge of Metro Arlington, overlooking trees and neighborhoods. Orange line Metro is walkable (~10 minutes), and daytime shuttle is available. Worst part is that AC Motion sensor turns off system while you sleep (i.e. Hot!). Also, not enough plugs, but sort of typical for older H Inns. Best part is an In-room Laptop-sized... More

Had a very pleasant stay here for three nights. Very friendly and helpful service, rooms were pleasant - everything was fine and reasonably priced. The only issue was that it took awhile for taxis to come to the hotel, and because there are so many Holiday Inns in the area, you need to specify Holiday Inn Arlington and Balleston. Otherwise...

Hotel was excellent. Great staff that went out of their way to accommodate us. Shuttle driver Jay, drove us to the Metro and back in the rain so we would not have to get wet. Desk clerk updated our IHG information when she found out it had old address. Room was clean and the TV was large. Location was perfect... More

Staff and location was good, and the room was clean...but all the details were lacking. Blow dryer cord was too short to see yourself in the mirror. No desk in the room and no outlet convenient to the table which had to suffice as a workspace. No good spot to set up the ironing board and also plug in an... More

Very nice staff and clean room. But overall not worth the money at all. No microwave in the room and no continental breakfast. Very nice having a keurig in the room though. Its the one redeeming quality of the room.

Very nice hotel well situated in Ballston, walking distance to tons of great restaurants and sports bars as well as the metro if you're looking to head into DC while on your visit. Stayed multiple times here and the staff have always been helpful and pleasant. Never used the gym, but the hotel is perfectly situated to hop on to... More

I stayed for 10 days. The rooms are great, price is nice especially for USG employees. Free transportation within a mile of the hotel to the mall, train station etc. Friendly drivers, bar and restaurant staff.

Average cost was $200/night. The fitness center is a joke and only has cardio equipment; no weight machines, despite what the hotel literature says.The pool was closed and it's the 2nd week of September. They said it was the law, but I don't know if that's true or not. Breakfast is not included in the price and a yogurt parfait... More
