“Wont impress, probably wont disgust”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2004

Cabfare from the airport was $12, they do provide a shuttle which will come and pick you up if you call from the airport, but we just wanted to get there and get settled.

From the moment you enter, I guess, you'll realise this is no luxury hotel. You can see the little managers office behind the desk, and a worn out sign on the desk telling you about the shuttle.

I must say, we came to this hotel after staying 10 nights in a 3 star suite in New York (which I have also reviewed, Holiday Inn Harmon Meadow, i'd recommend that hotel!) so I knew we were in for a disappointment.

Our original room, room 707, I felt was quite poor. Loud air conditioning, the air conditioning unit itself was in poor repair, the grill on the bottom was hanging off on the floor. There's no places to walk to get food closeby, except a chinese place across the road, which is alright (they give you a lot of food, and it's good), so we ate that. My girlfriend spilt soy sauce on the floor, so we wake up next morning, and just like in NY, we have ants, except this time a lot more. The staff seemed less willing to help, but did relocate us, not to a suite though, but the room we went to was a lot better. The new room had the same air conditioning model as in New York, very quiet.

Other than the ants, no real complaints about the Hotel, just dont expect anything special, eat anything with sugar outside your room! The shuttle service was good, it takes you to a 4 storey mall with a Metro station underneath it, which should be your main method of transport in the city. The shuttle does stop picking up at 10pm, and the Metro service is not like in New York, it doesn't run 24 hours (each station tells you which time they run their last train on a sign near the help desk, which is always manned), but it's still fairly good. If you do want to stay out in D.C. past 10pm, however, you can get the Metro back to the Pentagon City Metro stop, and go into the Ritz Carlton attached to the mall and get yourself a cab back to the hotel. To save yourself $10, pick up a guidebook from the customer service desk on the lowest food court level on the way to the Metro, as it's free and tells you all you really need to know about D.C. if you just want to see the main sights.

The mall really saves the hotel, as there's nothing worth seeing nearby. I was told not to walk around in the area (something which I did the second day of my stay) by a chap who I attended the Redskins/Cowboys game with, but I didn't encounter any problems. I ate once at the hotels restaurant, it was reasonably priced and edible.

I'd stay at this place again, but only as a last resort and if it was cheap. I got in for $109 a night, but I was told I got a "good rate" by the guy at the front desk, who advised the rate for people without reservations at the time was $169, a total rip off!

Any questions, feel free to Email me.

A recent last minute business trip brought me to the Comfort Inn at the Pentagon, as all the hotels in the city were fully booked due to a postal convention and the opening of the Native American Museum. The location is out of the way, but free shuttle service to the Metro station and Pentagon City Mall makes it easy to get around. The room was a bit worn around the edges (never did figure out what that large red stain on the carpet was), but otherwise clean. I had little interaction with the staff as I stayed for just one night, but they seemed pleasant. Complimentary buffet breakfast is served in the hotel restaurant. Lunch and dinner menus are available as well, but you would be better off eating elsewhere. Service for dinner was very slow (I waited almost 30 minutes for a bowl of soup) and the food was nothing special. Comfort Inn at the Pentagon won't bowl you over but it will do if you're only staying for a night or two, or there is no room at other DC hotels.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn June 10, 2004 to sleep after a redeye before a ceremony at Arlington (very close by). Our family had many rooms reserved. The rooms are what you would expect from this level of hotel - decent but not exciting, clean but starting to show a bit of wear around the edges. The bathroom had a sink/mirror both inside the bathroom and outside of it, which is convenient. Continental breakfast is included in the price, but we didn't get a chance to see it. The air conditioner in our room was very noisy, while in our family's other rooms it didn't work well enough for those hot DC summer days, but they were moved to new rooms when requested. One room had no towels in it and the family had to call several times before any towels were provided. The hotel shares a small pool with the ancient Best Western next door. Parking is free. Overall it's a reasonable place, but for $119/night with AAA discount, it seemed expensive for what we got.
