Used this hotel for a vacation week to Washington DC sites. Picked it because it was decently close (about 25 min ride on train) and a great price compared to others. About 6 block walk to the train which was easy but they also offered a shuttle van on the hour if you wanted. The breakfast spread was the best... More

Our son is in the service stationed at Arlington and we have stayed here several times. It is a great location and usually much cheaper than other hotels in the area WITH FREE PARKING! Older property but the rooms and lobby are in good shape. Several restaurants in easy walking distance and a convenience store directly across the street.

Transitioning from an airbnb to an apartment, both close by in Arlington. Phoned to find out whether I could leave luggage at the start of the day, go to work, then check in to my room in the evening. Would have been fine, and when I arrived at 8:15am they had done better than that: made a room ready (or... More

I stayed here while looking for an apartment in DC and I really liked it. The best thing about this hotel is the free parking. They have an underground garage and a surface lot and the hotel surrounds it. The rooms are pretty nice, especially for the price. Clean, spacious, and relatively quiet. You might want to ask to be... More

I stayed here for the Marine Corps Marathon and it proved to be an excellent choice. 8 minute walk to the Metro so convenient to get around easily. Room appears to have been redone relatively recently and was very spacious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Microwave, coffee maker and fridge made saving leftovers viable. Breakfast is typical for... More

My family stayed here for the Marine Corps Marathon. It was a bit far from the start of the race, but the price was somewhat reasonable compared to other price gouging hotels in the area ( the race attracts many people to the area). Our room was spacious, clean, and just what we needed. There was also a free shuttle... More

I sayed here with my 3 children while in the DC area to visit family and see the sights of Washington DC. It is pretty close to the metro so makes sight seeing easy & convenient. Nice neighborhood, very friendly staff and clean rooms.

Why pay a premium when you can stay in Arlington for much less $$ and take the Metro into DC? This Comfort Inn has all you need -- large, clean rooms, free parking, good breakfast and short walk to Metro and restaurants. Friendly helpful staff that provided very useful information about getting in/out of DC. Shuttles on the hour to... More
