“Friendly staff, clean rooms. What more can you ask?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

Stayed three nights with my husband's family who were visiting from the Netherlands. We were all very pleased with the fresh, updated interior and the super clean rooms. The hotel is in a good location, away from the hustle and noise but close enough that travel times are minimal. There's a McDonald's that's in the parking lot and lots of restaurants close by.

Parking was plentiful and safe. We didn't worry about leaving our vehicle in the lot. The pool was very well maintained and was not at all crowded when we were there (in a heat wave in July-- that's saying something!). Breakfast was typical fare, waffles, bagels, cereal, and yogurt, but they also had scrambled eggs and sausage. And the coffee was actually drinkable, a rarity in hotels these days. They keep coffee and tea in the lobby at all times, which is a nice perk. The staff were all very friendly and helpful-- everyone we spoke with was super-nice!

All in all, a wonderful stay. If I head back to DC in the future, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Thank you for your comments on the friendliness and helpfulness of the Comfort Inn –Falls Church staff! It seems like you 'hit the nail on the head' when describing our property and the highlights it has to offer including: restaurants within walking distance, 6 short miles to Washington DC, full hot breakfast, free parking, large outdoor pool, and a staff ready to serve you! It’s great when recent guests feel it necessary to recommend our hotel to future travelers on Trip Advisor! Hope to see you again soon.

EXTREMELY RUDE STAFF MEMBERS.....I will never stay here again, the location is decent, the remodel is nice, the rooms are okay. The problem here is exactly as others have stated, it is "family" owned and the family doesn't understand what it means to give good service to their guests. Several members of the "family" were EXTREMELY RUDE to me and my children, but mostly they were rude to my wife to the point that we thought about just leaving and finding another hotel even after we had already paid for the night. We left the next morning and stayed at the Best Western in Arlington for LESS and the staff there was great!! I recommend you do the same.

The location was great - we used the hotel van to the metro and late afternoon pickup. Worked so well. The room was nice - we were on the back side so had a view of the pool. So nice to come back here after a hectic day along the Mall. Nice and quiet and great to jump into the pool. It has an excellent staff and so proactive.

We are happy to hear that our large outdoor pool was a favorite during your visit! Did you know that Falls Church, VA reached a record breaking high of 99 degrees this month? Our pool is making a big splash among guests! Look for some of our other family favorites as you book your next stay with us! We've teamed up with the most sought after attractions in Washington, DC to deliver family packages that include admission to museums, Metro tickets, tourist guide packs and a room at Comfort Inn, which of course comes with 'Your Morning' breakfast. Hurry back!

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff is excellent, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Special mention goes out to Michael, Ali, Santos, Junied and the management staff. Our shuttle to the Metro, both to and fro was comfortable and timely, and just added to our enjoyment of our trip to the DC area. This hotel has added scrambled eggs, and sausage to the normal continental breakfast (great waffles), and was stocked constantly. Thanks to all and I will stay there again gladly. My grandkids were with me and the staff made them welcome also.

If you look at my past post you will see that I mention that the service that I comment is specific to our stay only, well not this time..I heard people talking about their bad experiences while I was in the lobby.
Room way over priced, even if it was a holiday weekend. Hotel is older or just not that well kept up. The doors open and shut so loud that people going in and out four rooms down woke us up. At 1:00am the desk clerk had to help someone get in he room and woke the whole hall up, he was loud and obnoxious. There is no parking, the lot is small and cars had to park on the excess road. The hotel is obvious a franchise owned by a family, they all work there and live there. There was so many of them eating in the continental breakfast that no one else could get in.

The area is no a good one, the McDonalds next door had groups of men drinking beer in at 1000pm then again a 800am (same guys).

For the amount of money, its just not worth it. We go to D.C. often and wont be staying here again. -Sorry

Thank you for your feedback. I would like to apologize for any inconvenience experienced during the busy Holiday weekend. Many families and small groups made Comfort Inn their choice of hotel while celebrating Independence Day in our nation’s capitol. Our new full hot breakfast does draw a crowd during the morning hours. The flavored Belgium waffles, eggs, and sausage have become favorites and travelers just can’t seem to get enough! We are excited to undergo full room renovations this fall. The renovation will replace the Double beds with new Queen beds, add new drapery, new carpet and new flat screen televisions! Lots of guests rave about the value they receive when staying at our hotel! It was disappointing to hear that you did not perceive the rate you paid to be accurate with all the amenities offered. I assure you, your comments will be used to improve our service. Again, thank you for your comments.

We booked our room for a last minute trip to Washington DC. I had seen a review on here after I reserved the room that gave me pause, so I called and spoke to Micheal who ended up being very helpful, and addressed my concerns. The room had what appeared to be a new bathroom, it was a little small but nice, the rest of the room was a little worn, but the bed felt newer and was very comfortable. The pool was very nice and there was a lifeguard on duty, that was a little surprising because it rarely happens at hotels :D It had the normal Choice Hotel breakfast with a few adds, like eggs and sausage. ( was a very nice treat). When we stay at a hotel we are usually sightseeing or visiting people so we look for clean and reasonably priced nothing fancy however we do appreciate friendly and helpful staff, this staff ended up going out of the way for us when we had car trouble, the Manager took my husband to get parts for the repair, and checked back to make sure everything was going well and refused offers of payment for gas. I wanted to address one of the complaints on here about distance from some attractions, like Arlington, we drove and had no problem getting around, Washington DC was about 5 miles away, we also saw the hotel shuttle taking and picking up people from the Metro Station which really was not that far away. We would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write about us on Trip Advisor. It is pleasing when I can share comments like these with the hotel team. Thank you for recognizing the short 5 mile distance from the hotel to DC‘s main attractions such as: Arlington National Cemetery, Smithsonian, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and more! I’m glad you and your family enjoyed our large outdoor pool and that you took notice of the lifeguard on duty! The safety and satisfaction of all our guests is of utmost importance. We appreciate your business and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
