“A gem. Highly recommend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Great location, near major roads but set back from them in a quiet location. Convenient access to the DC metro and hotel provides shuttle service. Cleanest bathroom I've seen in any hotel I've recently stayed at. Friendly staff. They provide a soft/firm pillow combination that is very comfortable. Nice array of foods provided at the complimentary breakfast. It was very hot outside but the room air conditioner handled it well. Front desk staff competently responded to our request for a quiet room. We appreciated having the very comfortable chair for reading.

Room Tip: The top floor was very quiet.

I stayed for two days for business. The hotel is big for a typical Comfort Inn, but the service is a GEM. I rode the metro and I called the hotel for direction and guidance; they quickly offered to pick us up on their shuttle. What a wonderful surprise. The hotel is located about 5 min from the metro. The lobby is beautiful, with decorations of their numerous awards. I mean numerous awards! The room was typical Comfort Inn style, with few minor updates on furniture. The television was new. The room was clean and comfortable. The AC worked like a charm. The lighting was a little low but adequate. The two days that we stayed, all of the staff went above and beyond their duties. I want to thank everyone there. Hope to see you again soon!

Room Tip: I was on the 7th floor and it was great. My room was facing south, which didn't really have any...

Green Features: I saw various Recycling bins (including in the room).

I stayed at this Comfort Inn for six nights while I was in town for work. The desk staff was always very friendly and extremely helpful. I definitely asked a lot of questions while I was there, and they always had an answer for me. I stayed on the 7th floor. The hallway seemed to have a funny smell to it, but my room was super clean and comfortable. The housekeeping team at this hotel do a wonderful job. The hotel isn't very close to sights or shopping, but a ten minute drive takes you to a nice shopping area (Rio?) with movie theaters and great restaurants. The hotel offers a shuttle, which I didn't use, but is a nice amenity.

Stayed at Comfort Inn, because of a meeting I was scheduled to attend not too far from this property. The staff very helpful and understanding, especially Front Desk Associate Yulia. The Room Attendants are great, very clean rooms, comfortable beds, great amenities. And to top it off Comfort Inn is environmentally friendly and a Choice Hotels International property.

Also in close proximity to many of the things I love to do whenever I travel....especially SHOPPING!!

Room Tip: Place to stay, whenever in Gaithersburg

Had the pleasure to stay here for 3 nights earlier this month. All the reviews are spot on ... this is a great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of DC. All staff are very polite, helpful and attentive. Gaithersburg restaurants close early though (remember this IS country!) so if you arrive late the only available fast food closeby is Checkers for greasy hamburgers. The free shuttle to / from Shady Grove Metro station is a bonus as the metro commute into DC is approx 30 mins and beats driving / parking in downtown Washington DC. Only negative is the free breakfast finshes 9.30am weekdays which is a bit early for holidaymakers who prefer to sleep in. I would definitely stay here again though :)

All the reviews are right on. The rooms, staff, and amenities are all first rate. The shuttle to Shady Grove metro station is quick and the driver was very courteous. The breakfast was very good and the Tuesday night reception was excellent. The hostess was very friendly and even recommended good places to eat. We would definitely stay again.
