“Great Hotel - Great Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This really is a great hotel at a great price. We're so happy we chose this hotel and will definitely stay again. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We we're given a wonderful room with a jacuzzi at no additional cost. Hotel was kept clean and comfortable. Breakfast had a lot of different choices with vegetarian options available. Vegan options limited, so just plan accordingly. All in all, it was a great stay!!

This is a good hotel. The walls are decently sound proof. The heater worked well. It's clean and the service is good. The rooms with the jacuzzis are kind of funny to me but I enjoyed it all the same. There are 2 questionable rooms though. One had terrible water pressure and one was a suite on the first floor that looked nothing like the rest of the rooms in the hotel and I am here 2 to 3 times a month. It was kind of sketchy and looked more like an old employee breakroom or storage room that they converted into a guest room.

But otherwise, I enjoy coming here because the price is right as well as the location. Also, if you read my other reviews, I'm pretty low maintenance. As long as there are no bedbugs, they automatically get a 2 star for that. The rest are earned of course.

Room Tip: If you can get a jacuzzi room, I recommend it. It's fun!

We arrived late without reservations and it was very crowded. But they gave us a wonderful room with kitchenette. Perhaps it was because i'm a Choice Hotel member. The price was gat also. I asked for a late check out the next day and this was no problem and it did not cost any extra!

Breakfast was perfect. We had a real good stay!

Our family was given a good rate & nice service. The front desk helped book a tour & made sure we got to the metro quickly. My girls enjoyed the pool & Chinese restaurant located in the hotel. There is a 7, 11 store & a grocery store w/ walking distance- its in the parking lot. Breakfast was normal hotel complimetary breakfast- its nor Bob Evans but good enough to start our day. When I visit Dc again I will stay here! Our room had a full kitchen which was nice. Roomy king & the double rooms had plenty of space for a family of 4- even room for a roll away in both rooms. Spatious rooms:-)

We stayed here because of massive storm damage and a power outage that lasted five days. We were lucky to get a room since all of Northern VA was booked because of the extensive power outages. The hotel was clean and quiet with A/C which was very welcome since our house was an oven. Our room was large with a nice size clean bathroom. Breakfast was included in the price. The kids used the pool the first night. The people at the desk were very nice and helpful. The only draw back was that the hot water took forever to come on We would stay here again.

A severe storm damaged homes, power lines, etc and as I am elderly and have 2 dogs finding a place to be comfortable was almost an impossibility. It was just by chance we were able to find a room at the Comfort Inn (full to capacity along with every other hotels in the No. Va area) we were fortunate that when we showed up another person was checking out because their power had been restored.

We were without power for 6 days 4 of which we stayed at the Comfort Inn. Everyone there was sympathetic to the mass of people trying to find a place to at least have some AC on the brutal 100 degree days we were experiencing. A special thank you to Venous who worked long hours. She kept a smile and made everyone feel as though their problem was special.
