“Great hotel with access to all Washington DC attractions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This property is a wonderful hotel. The staff are exceptionally competent, helpful, and gracious. The manager, Richard, does an outstanding job of running the hotel and most of the staff have been with him for many years, a testament to his management style. The metro stop is a fifteen minute walk from the hotel, but the hotel offers a free shuttle as well. They will pick guests up from the metro and take them to the metro on request. The hotel provides the best value of any hotel we've ever been to.

Green Features: There is a blue recycle bin in each room which is a nice feature.

Excellent accommodations and service was provided to my wife and I on our recent stay. The room was exceptionally clean and the breakfast was very good for a continental breakfast. The staff was very helpful and there was even a lifeguard at the pool.
I would recommend this to anyone.
Thank you to the management and staff!!

My family had a great time at Comfort Inn at Shady Grove. The staff was very courteous and friendly and the facilities were very clean and well maintained. Since the hotel is within a mile of Metro Station, it made it very handy to get around DC without needing a car rental. Also, the hot breakfast was very good and they have fresh Dunkin Donuts from around the corner. The complimentary shuttle service to the Metro Station was very handy and saved us from having to take a taxi which would have cost $10 each way. I would highly recommend this hotel for all reasons listed above.

This is an attractive, clean, friendly hotel within walking distance of the Shady Grove metro stop. We have stayed there several times and enjoyed the comfy, immaculate room, the cushy bedding, and the decent free breakfast. The staff is accommodating. There is clean, nice outdoor pool for the kids. The price is very good for the area. I recommend it.

Great staff, clean rooms. The out door pool has a life gaurd, and there's a good size "park" just for the guests (it was like a back yard). There is a shuttle, but I recommend having a car for that area. When I visit DC with the kids I will return to this hotel.

During our 3 night stay we found this to be a friendly and well run hotel. Its set-back position can make it difficult to find being directly off a road junction (initially we drove passed it). Our room was of a really good standard and contained a microwave and fridge. The free breakfast was appreciated and free parking was available. We used this hotel as a base for exploring Washington DC and surrounding area

My wife and I stayed in the Comfort Inn at Shady Grove (Gaithersburg, MD) for the first time April 30 - May 2, for both a nearby medical visit and for a pleasure visit to downtown D.C. Staff all were excellent. Room was accomodating and comfortable. On Tuesday eve, they had an enjoyable welcome reception with a pleasant, knowledgeable hostess. For our "tourist" part of the visit, a shuttle was provided from the hotel to the nearby Metro station--which in our opinion is a far superior way to arrive downtown than searching there for parking these days, but be sure to have enough change for the Metro. Several good restaurant options also within a short drive-- we chose Growlers of Gaithersburg (delightfully active grill/pub). If we are able to visit the D.C.area again, this will be our hotel choice-- "see you next time!"

Green Features: We appreciated their posted practices and also the two signs warning about nesting birds in nearby trees.
