You read all of the excellent reviews from the past and my comments echo those. Grounds & rooms were clean, staff was friendly and breakfast was great. Not a great location for off site eating, but there are a few nearby within walking distance.

We usually stay at this hotel when in the area. It is always the same and maintained well. Breakfast is adequate and the rooms are good. The price is right and location is good for traveling by car or getting to the metro to head down to DC.

From the time of making the reservation to the moment we checked out our experience was top-notch. Every one of the hotel staff was warm, friendly, and accommodating. The room was immaculate and the breakfast delicious and plentiful. The lobby was warm and inviting also. It was necessary for us to use the business center, and were welcomed to do so, as well as actually given help by one of the staff who went out of the way for us. Located only 30 minutes from DC, it's the perfect location. We highly recommend.

If you need a hotel close to the National Institutes of Health, forgot the overpriced Wisconsin Avenue options. The Shady Grove Comfort Inn is a 15-minute walk or a one-minute hotel shuttle ride from the Shady Grove Metro station, and instead of paying $180 and $200 a night or more, the NIH rate is only $89 plus tax. The hotel offers comfortable and clean rooms, each with mini fridge, microwave, even complimentary bottled water. The complimentary breakfast is perfectly nice--cereals, yogurts, breads as well as egg, waffle, and pastry choices--and apparently, though we missed it each evening, there is also a complimentary happy hour from 5:30-7 each night. If we were looking for a vacation spot or interesting restaurants, this is not a hotel we'd rate as "excellent." But if you need accommodation close to the NIH or Bethesda Naval Hospital, this is the very best place we have found.

Green Features: Appreciated the blue recycling basket in the room.

We stayed here for a holiday visit to Washington. It is at the end of the Metro line, but trains are frequent and run late. The station is 20 mins walk and the hotel has a shuttle although we didn't use it. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was poor however, majoring on donuts and waffles, with a dubious looking meat thing and egg as the 'sizzle' offering. Poor selection of fruit and things that I would want to eat! Overall it was OK, but I woud not rush back.

the hotel is a 20 min walk to the DC Metro train station Shady Grove and the hotel will also pick up or drive you to the station. Also a 5 min walk to an Enterprise car rental office. Room s and public areas were clean and comfortable, but the location/setting is not so attractive. There are no decent restaurants are bars very near. Lots of fast food choices. Best options would be in old town Gaithersburg about 15 min driving. Free breakfast was unchanging, juice, coffee, breads, waffles, eggs(circle patties? and hard boiled), sausage. USA Today paper but nothing else and no newspaper dispensers. Nearest that papers, Washington Post and WSJ can be found are at a Seven Eleven, a 10 min walk away. Overall, lower price, clean but in a cramped unattractive location. No shopping nearby. Tuesday night wine and beer and snacks reception was a nice plus.

Room Tip: Several tour and student groups passed through. You should ask to avoid them if possible. A seven...
