“Lovely little hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Great staff, clean rooms. The out door pool has a life gaurd, and there's a good size "park" just for the guests (it was like a back yard). There is a shuttle, but I recommend having a car for that area. When I visit DC with the kids I will return to this hotel.

During our 3 night stay we found this to be a friendly and well run hotel. Its set-back position can make it difficult to find being directly off a road junction (initially we drove passed it). Our room was of a really good standard and contained a microwave and fridge. The free breakfast was appreciated and free parking was available. We used this hotel as a base for exploring Washington DC and surrounding area

My wife and I stayed in the Comfort Inn at Shady Grove (Gaithersburg, MD) for the first time April 30 - May 2, for both a nearby medical visit and for a pleasure visit to downtown D.C. Staff all were excellent. Room was accomodating and comfortable. On Tuesday eve, they had an enjoyable welcome reception with a pleasant, knowledgeable hostess. For our "tourist" part of the visit, a shuttle was provided from the hotel to the nearby Metro station--which in our opinion is a far superior way to arrive downtown than searching there for parking these days, but be sure to have enough change for the Metro. Several good restaurant options also within a short drive-- we chose Growlers of Gaithersburg (delightfully active grill/pub). If we are able to visit the D.C.area again, this will be our hotel choice-- "see you next time!"

Green Features: We appreciated their posted practices and also the two signs warning about nesting birds in nearby trees.

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.
