Staff seems to be friendly. Hotel is in a safe area, but it seems to get its fair share of sirens passing by. Room decorations are in very nice condition, but beds are not very comfortable. They are hard and seem to be all springs. Water pressure and temps are good. I noted what looks like either mildew or beginning...

This is a great hotel. Front desk, shuttle, breakfast, and cleaning staff are great. They are friendly and very responsive. My spouse is handicapped and can be a challenge. All the staff were very kind and patient. The free shuttle easily accommodated his wheelchair. The rooms were very clean and the bed comfortable. I frequently stay in Choice hotels and...

Overall good experience. Visited for an overnight business trip. Front desk personnel very friendly, helpful with directions. Room looked clean and maintained, but was looking a bit worn. The included breakfast was OK. Would use again for a quick trip, but probably not for a multi-day trip.

The convenient location, easy access, free parking, free wifi and free breakfast were exactly what we were looking for. Clean and quiet rooms with comfortable beds and pillows were just right. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions. Overall a great...

Moved here after spending one night at the Holiday Inn. The desk clerk was very helpful and the rooms were clean. The dining room where the FREE breakfast was served was also open in the evening for menu-ordering dinner. This hotel also has a FREE shuttle to the nearest subway station.

My husband I have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting our daughter in Arlington. The last visit was two weeks ago. The hotel is easy to access, parking is free, and there is an hourly shuttle to the metro station- making this hotel a viable option for those visiting DC who don't want to pay the exorbitant prices...

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and with our AAA discount, the room rate was excellent. The rooms are spacious and the location very close to the Ballston stop on the Orange and Silver Metro line. Everyone was friendly and the location was very clean. We would stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of rooms after our not so happy stay at comfort Inn Orlando. This one was spacious and clean. Full marks as far as the rooms are concerned. I felt the breakfast could have been better
