A very convenient place to stay which is within walking distance of the DC metro & also close to a nice shopping area. The only problem was that they also charge 14 dollars to park the automobile in a (gated) open parking lot behind the hotel.

This Holiday Inn is about 4 blocks slightly uphill from the Ballston Metro stop. The room was clean and over a 5 night stay was cleaned well daily. There is s language barrier with some of the front desk and restaurant employees. The SHuttle drivers were very courteous and accomodating. My biggest complaint is the breakfast.

Stayed two nights for business. Staff was helpful and responsive. Location was fine for Arlington. Plenty of nearby restaurants. $15 Uber to DCA. Room was large and comfortable. Pool was located on second floor roof; a bit small, but still very nice during a DC June. Restaurant was above average. Solid business- class hotel. Will return.

I was at the Holiday Inn Arlington at Ballston for a work event. The room was large and very comfortable. I enjoyed the Bath and Body Works toiletries. The mini-fridge was convenient.

The location of this hotel is quite good. It can be an alternative for someone who likes to travel in DC but wishes to pay less for accommodation. It takes around 15-20 minutes from the hotel to downtown DC. The check in process was quick, the hotel staff was nice. The room itself was pretty spacious (we stayed for 4... More

Family and I stayed here for one night to do a little sight-seeing in DC. You are within walking distance to the Ballston-MU Metro station.

Nicely appointed room, clean and comfortable. Fast internet. Friendly staff. Good neighborhood for walking. We headed out to dinner- several good food options within a 6 minute walk. Parking is $14. Two blocks from Orange Line of the Metro.

Pros: Clean, Service is good if you pay, shuttle to metro, has a operational bar. Cons: Parking $14, Breakfast $14, not enough towels in room had to call housekeeping, air conditioner is crazy loud and cold (which means the air feels too cold when on and uncomfortable when not) I have always been more pleased with econolodge and choice hotels.
