“Not far from final Washington subway stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I like to walk and hate driving downtown so I picked this hotel because it was within walking distance of a Washington subway stop, in fact the final stop on the line at Shady Grove. The hotel was conveniently located very close to the highway coming in from out of town and was reasonably priced. Only negative for me was that I ended up in a room adjacent to a loud family with a baby and the walls seemed thin enough that I did have at least one interrupted sleep. I did not ask to be moved and the air conditioner in the room was loud enough to drown out that sound on the subsequent night. Nearby food options are a bit limited but there are decent delivery options. One small negative was that the gift/convenience shop in the lobby was closed mid-day, opposite to the stated hours, but hotel explained to me that the shop is privately owned and keeps unpredictable hours. Friendly people working here too.

My wife and I recently stayed here while visiting D.C. and some friends that live nearby. Our room was clean and quiet and the desk staff were very helpful. The Hotel has a free shuttle to the Shady Grove Metro station, but we opted to walk since it was only about 15 mniutes away. The Metro ride to the heart of DC is about 40 minutes.

We would stay here again if we come back to the area.

Clean hotel, Very nice and attentive staff, good breakfast with more than average selection, location is close to metro with shuttle service, rate is good for the location and value, nothing left to say just filling up the required minimum characters

The surrounding area of this hotel isn't great, so I was at first concerned about this hotel. The lobby and front desk are way above the normal Comfort Inn, so that was the first nice contrast. Elevator is fast. My room on the 7th floor was quiet in spite of the road noise. Constant speed fan on the AC unit helped a lot.

I slept like a baby.

The room is upscale and modern, with a nice desk area. Only gripe I have about the room is that there are no power outlets by the desk. I had to stretch the laptop cord across the bed.

I would come back here. Price is right, and the room quality is fantastic.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor

For our trip into Washington DC, we stayed at the end of the Red Metro line at Comfort Inn Shady Grove. The hotel is a nice, clean stay - typical Comfort Inn. We enjoyed the breakfast and there was plenty of food. We requested a full size bed but only room available had two Full size (didnt like that!) No restaurant on site but there are a few restaurants that deliver to the hotel. Location to Metro is fantastic!!

Very pleased with our stay, staff very helpful, shuttle to metro on demand, good breakfast, good rooms fantastic bed. The only thing that stops me giving it 5 stars is the length of metro journey to Washington 40 minutes.
