“Wonderful stay with excellent staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

My wife and I wanted to get away for a week and visit DC. In searching for a place to stay, the University Center Comfort Inn came up on a GroupOn deal and it looked promising so we booked it. The complimentary hot breakfast was a great start to each day with scrambled eggs, sausage, home fries, waffles, fruit and other pastries; we found the food fresh and hot. We were able to use their shuttle services each morning and night to get to and from the Vienna Metro station for day trips into DC. All of the staff we met were friendly and courteous making us feel at home. There was plenty of room in the suite for us and we enjoyed soaking in the hot tub at night. We would definitely return and stay here in the future. The hotel itself was clean with a few minor defects in the room. The shower/bathroom arrangement was a bit odd and small. We toured the pool and exercise facility, but never quite made it to either choosing to soak in the hot tub instead.

I have stayed at this property about a half dozen times over the past year and they always take good care of me. The staff is amazing and I continue to get free nights since signing up for their membership program.

Wireless Internet works well, breakfast has plenty of options, and the rooms are clean!! That's all I need.

Had stayed here before and while not a great hotel it was good for one night.

Was a little dissapointed this time. Arrived several days after a big snowstorm and the parking lot was still a mess - about half the spaces were unusable.

The rooms were clean. The staff is very helpful - for example they had pre printed directions for where we wanted to go and it appeared they had these for a lot of places.

Never expecting a gourmet breakfast in these types of hotels but it was still dissapointing. Eggs and sausage were cold and tasteless. Second morning went down to breakfast and everything looked the same so went out to eat.

We stayed here for one night on our way home from Florida to New York. It's a clean hotel with very nice staff... We had a jacuzzi king room, tub was very clean. Shower was a bit yucky... Clean but old and worn out. They have an indoor heated pool BUT the room it's in is not all that warm, the hotel is also not too warm. You can put your room temp as high as you want. The walk from the pool was absolutely freezing. They Do have complimentary breakfast from 7-11am, which we didn't attend. Honestly for the price, I don't think it is worth the stay! Plenty more hotels with better amenities.

For a couple's night away from home, on a Thursday....lovely experience. The front desk manager gave us a fantastic rate, even though it was a last minute decision and we did not have a reservation. He even gave us an upgrade to a jacuzzi suite. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Bedding and towels were new, and more luxurious than I was expecting Cozy bed. Even the pillows were to my high standard. We did not stay for breakfast, but it was great to have a fridge and microwave in our room. Thanks, we will be back!

I am a European and I stayed for 5 nights at the hotel in early January. Wonderful value for money in terms of accommodation, huge room with two double beds, although I was alone. Everything was in there, although the hotel is not very new. But my room had everything, from cable tv to fridge, microwave, coffee machine, to writing desk and yes, an iron and ironing board. The only drawback was the bathtub and shower, typically old American, with the shower into the wall, and the water tap kinda clunky. But it was all about the service. Reception staff went out of their way to fulfill my every request, cleaning ladies were quick and discreet, Breakfast was overly plentiful and good quality. On my last day, the receptionist even enrolled me for free as a member of the Comfort Inn club, so that I could stay in my room for three more hours. Simply, the staff were fantastic, I wish European hotels had such professional and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

We got three rooms for our family and the staff was very accommodating, putting the three rooms right together. We also needed two roll away beds and they brought those up as soon as we asked.
The continental breakfast was awesome! Better than any other I have ever had! There was a great variety of foods and the hot items were fresh and hot.
The hotel was a very convenient location to food and shopping.
We would definitely stay here again if the need arises!

Room Tip: We had rooms on the 2nd floor--we got three double bed efficiencies and they were great!
