Hotel is great - but if road noise is a problem for you, ask for a room on the NON Shady Grove Road side. The two elevators mean short wait times. We stayed 7 nights during our last stay - found that the breakfast selections were good with many options, but they were exactly the same each day. The hotel... More

Staying in any metropolitan city can be expensive. When we decided to drive and stay in DC for 5 nights, we knew we wanted to find something affordable, close to a Metro station, and with free parking. Impossible you say? Not when we found the Comfort Inn in Gaithersburg! All of our wants were met by this establishment, plus a... More

Hotel offers shuttle to Shady Grove stop on the Metro. This is very convenient for travelers. Check-in and check-out were very quick. Our room was exceptionally clean, also very roomy. Breakfast was well stocked and very clean. When we needed the shuttle, we notified front desk. Shuttle arrived within 5 minutes. We will certainly stay at this hotel if we... More

Booked a week at the Comfort Inn at Shady Grove in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Very pleased with the staff; front desk, housekeeping, and breakfast hostesses. Front desk staff are quick to hop in the shuttle to get you to the Metro Stop. Don't let the shortened hours for the weekend scare you off, it is an easy walk to the hotel.... More

Very nice hotel in a nice neighborhood close to many attractions via major highway. Very helpful staff who were knowledgeable about dining, directions, and many other items that helped in our stay. Reasonably priced compared to others in the area. Looks like it was recently remodeled. Breakfast was free and good with a friendly staff eager to please. Would definitely... More

We did some Trip Advisor research prior to staying here and filtering through the likes and dislikes of some of the reviews the decision was easy. We stayed there mainly because of the price and location. It is very close to the Metro Shady Grove stop. You can get a Metro guide at the front desk and they have a... More

My colleague and I stayed for 1 night this past week. The hotel is clean and staff is friendly, but the beds are VERY hard! Rooms are a bit outdated but otherwise good for a quick business trip to the DC area. When asking the Front Desk for a good seafood restaurant recommendation, we were disappointed when they told us... More

My wife and I planned a trip to visit Washington D.C., and looked for a hotel that was out of town, and where metro transit could take us into the city. After finding that the Comfort Inn in Shady shores was near the metro, and provided free transportation, we booked it. When arriving we were greeted by an exceptional guest... More

Very clean and comfortable. Excellent staff. Great free hot breakfast buffet. Free shuttle to and from Metro which we took every to D.C. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Quiet. Street that it is on has many restaurants and lots of shopping. Would definitely stay again.

Very reasonable prices compared to area, good enough breakfast, well maintained hotel, friendly staff, right next to couple of decent restaurants and close to I-270. After first day out, discovered secret little road back side of hotel which allowed easy access to get back to Shady Grove Road and to I-270.
