“Nicest Comfort Inn I've ever stayed with”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I normally do not write reviews of 100 dollar per night hotels in the US; I've stayed in hundreds of them and typically they are not review worthy. For this price you simply expect them to be clean places to sleep for a night.
However, I wanted to give a quick thumbs up for this one, as it was by far the nicest Comfort Inn I've stayed with. The exterior is quite bland, but the interior is refurbished quite nicely. Sorry for no photos, but don't hesitate to book into it if your travels take you to this area.
There is also a metro stop several blocks down the road which will take you into DC easily.

Great customer service! Excellent hospitality. Knowledgeable staff; requested restaurant info and got GREAT recommendation and directions. Hotel recommended the best italian food we have ever eaten! Room was large and well furnished. We were sleeping in due to late arrival, and housekeeping still serviced our room after 4 PM with no request. Great to know there are still service oriented locations in the Choice Hotel Group. Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Rely on reservation staff.

I had stayed here before. It's a pretty nice hotel but the location isn't that great. No nice restaurants nearby. The parking lot is very small. The room however was very nice and the staff is very friendly. I would definitely stay here again. They do need to add some channels to the TV lineup.

Stayed here after reading reviews from other travelers. Within walking distance to the train to Washington, DC (they have a shuttle also). Great hotel and staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Room was nice and clean.

My husband and I . . . along with our good friends . . . stayed in the Comfort Inn at Shady Grove for three weeks in September, 2012 while we were visiting Washington DC. Our room was great and the staff was all so accomodating! Anything we needed they were happy to provide. They offer a hot breakfast each morning and a free ride to and from the Metro each day. Every staff member including the Manager always had a smile on their faces and everytime we saw the Manager . . . he would stop and ask how we were doing and if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this wonderful, clean and restful hotel to anyone and we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Seventh floor at the end of the west wing are quiet and a tree top view.

I staied for one night at this hotel and it was a very good experience. The hotel is very well mantained, rooms are big enough and very comfortable, with new furnitures and very nice bed. Breakast was great, with fresh Donuts and plenty of different choices of cereal, beverage, etc. The rate was $110.- extremely good for this quality! Suggested to everybody!

The hotel is easily reached from I-270 and I-370 well away from the Beltway and related traffic. However, be sure to work out in advance the proper approaches and exit. The hotel is in a quiet location, even though adjoining the busy Fredrick Road. A room with king bed had good furnishings, desk, easy chair, adequate TV, bath with good fittings, towels, etc. An excellent bed, good linens, 6(!) pillows. Room was decently spacious and provided with microwave and fridge. A complimentary shuttle van to/from the Shady Grove metro station is available on demand and the service qualifies the hotel as a downtown alternative - the Metro route goes right through the heart of downtown DC (and Union Station) without transfers. There is a mini-mall adjoining the property with a Dunkin Doughnuts a convenience store and an Indian restaurant. Overall, the hotel is well maintained, an attractive lobby/breakfast room and the reception desk attended with well informed, helpful staff. A complaint: there is a charge of $1.06 per day for an in-room safe which is optional, but automatically charged - the management seems reluctant to point out this fact.
