“Usual comfort reliability”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Difficult to say more that they are always clean with comfortable beds and reasonably large rooms. The breakfast I am sure will be the basic but edible. Nice room tv etc.i really cannot say more as there is nothing exceptional, just always solid

Yes, they are in the midst of a renovation, but the staff made every effort to ensure that we had a comfortable stay - April 20-22. This is our third stay at this Comfort Inn and each time our experience is pleasurable and memorable. Sunil and his staff were very pleasant and congenial. They allowed us to check out later than usual without any difficulty. The breakfast spread was good and I saw many families enjoying a sumptuous breakfast before setting out into the city. Situated close to the Metro, National Science Foundation, and universities, I think this is a great value added hotel for a comfortable stay at the capital.

I come to the same hotel due to it's accessibility to ALL exits. Although this is in Virginia it is only 5 miles away from Washington D.C. where we always visit cherry blossom festival, lincoln memorial, and all the famous places there. One time we slept for 2 days, we only need the place to rest for a few hours. I would still come back due to it's strategic location and helpful staff. C.c. Of NJ

The rooms are shabby and dated. The hallways look like 1984, complete with pink and blue sponge paint. The lobby is a shambles---they've taken it down to the studs for renovation. And yet, despite all this, they are still charging full price, and not telling people who book that it is a construction zone. Appalling.

No frills at this strictly budget chain. Room was clean and comfortable enough, but lobby and other common areas were under construction (March 2013). Basic breakfast but served on Styrofoam plates with plastic forks. Easy walk to shopping, restaurants and subway.

The hotel lobby is undergoing a MAJOR reconstruction. The rooms are clean but very spartan. The third floor an unusual odor. The staff was kind and moved be to another floor due to a loud party next to my room.
