We wanted to visit DC and decided to look for a hotel along the metro line. Much less expensive than staying closer to the city. This hotel had it all: free metro shuttle ( on demand- just call when you want to be picked up) free parking, and free breakfast. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the pool was... More

Spent only one night at this Comfort Inn, but found the property in excellent condition. The clerk was friendly and welcoming and check in was trouble free. The room was comfortable and very clean. The bed comfortable. Everything in the room worked except one lamp. I will definitely stay in this hotel again.

My husband had surgery and this hotel was recommended by our Dr. We were not disappointed. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. After my husband's surgery he needed more to prop himself up when he slept they brought them up no problem. We checked in on a Tuesday and there was a customer reception in the lobby with meat,...

We just finished a 10 day stay at this hotel and couldn't be more pleased. The hotel is nicely appointed and very well kept up. The staff, from the manager on down, met our every need and was extremely customer service minded the entire stay. The breakfast was excellent and the shuttle to the nearest metro station was prompt. They... More

Backstory: Our seasonal trip from Toronto to the south (normally SE North Carolina) typically ended up in Frederick MD on day one - a little over halfway. On this trip, we were going to Chesapeake VA and my wife wanted to hit the Tysons Galleria at Tysons Corner in the AM. Though the total trip was about 3hrs less driving,... More

We stayed four nights in this hotel. The room was clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The wifi worked dependably and at a reasonable speed - truly a high speed internet connection. The hotel provided free shuttle service to the Shady Grove Metro Station from 7AM to 9PM. The staff was friendly, competent and helpful. The breakfast provided by the hotel each... More

Stayed here in June. Booked it as needed to be in the area. It was on average $30 a night cheaper than nearby options. We were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly and often asked if everything was to our satisfaction. The rooms were extremely clean with plenty of room. Ours had a large... More

There's nothing fancy about this place, but the renovations and well kept rooms mean things are clean and comfortable. The reason I am giving it four stars is that it is really convenient, especially if you have dogs. Besides having a place to stop before the parking lot traffic of the beltway when coming from the west, this property is... More

This hotel like many CIs has undergone an extensive rennovation, with updated bathroom ammenities and decor. Biggest problems are that they only have double beds and the breakfast has a pretty limited selection. Our room had a bit of a dank odor and moist carpeting. We have stayed in better CIs before.

I travel to the this area for duration of only 1 or two days every 8 weeks and have for the last 6 yrs.
