Comfort Inn Arlington Boulevard
Ranked #7 of 15 Hotels in Falls Church
Reviewed November 13, 2011

The check in clerk was very nice. The check out clerk was not. The complimentary breakfast was edible, barely, and the room was extremely clean, but the wallpaper was peeling, the ceiling had stains, the desk chair was ripped, the carpets were stained, and all wood surfaces looked worn. The bathroom was extremely small, the room was small too (otherwise why would they use two double beds instead of two queens?) The beds were pretty comfortable though. Every other hotel I've ever stayed in slips a copy of the bill/receipt under the door the day I am leaving, not here. I went to the desk to turn in the keys, the woman gave no indication of getting a receipt, so I asked for one, she said that since I had pre-paid I don't need a receipt, I told her I want to make sure they haven't put any additional charges on my credit card, so she printed out a weird piece of paper saying I owed zero. What?

I got a room here for two nights, because I had to attend a funeral at Arlington Cemetery. My GPS showed that it was almost 8 miles away and estimated the drive as 15 minutes. I had family staying in the Pentagon City area, which seemed closer to the cemetery. I was driving in from Union Station, but if you're flying into Reagan, I wouldn't recommend this location if the purpose of your visit is to visit Arlington. That being said, the location is near a strip mall, therefore convenient to gas, restaurants, grocery and drug store, and a Radio Shack (handy if you have a cell phone issue, like I did). The front desk was friendly and quickly addressed a broken light bulb and an issue with the phone. My double room looked a little worn, but a sign said that they were in the middle of updating the rooms. Bed was comfortable. The breakfast was standard mid-range hotel free morning breakfast bar. Breakfast room was spacious and well-lit.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent with us. We are a great location when needing to commute to the DC Area. We are 7 miles from downtown DC, and we offer complimentary shuttle service to and from the nearby Metro Station. We are very excited to begin our renovation very soon. Wonderfull things are happening and we "Thank you" for noticing. Our new full hot breakfast is a big hit with our guests! The flavored Belgian waffles, eggs, and sausage have become favorites. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

The accommodations at the Falls Church Comfort Inn were great. The location to Washington DC was good. The Comfort Inn provided a van to take us to the Metro Station, provided a good quality breakfast and clean comfortable accommodations.

Room Tip: Second or Third Floor Rooms are the best.

Good value hotel for a non-driving base to sight-see in DC. Hotel is a little jaded but is in the process of being renovated and the staff were excellent.

We chose not to drive into Washington and were disappointed that the shuttle bus to the nearest metro (Ballston) only runs 3 times a day in each direction. However, right next door is the local bus stop with a half-hourly service to the metro.

The breakfast was excellent and we would stay here again.

My family and I spend 3 days and 2 nights at the Comfort Inn and loved every minute of our stay. The Hotel was well maintained and beautiful. The service was excellent and the people that worked there where friendly and helpful.
On our 2 day their shuttle bus was over heating and the front desk person called a cab for us and paid for this service. The kid enjoyed the pool and the loved that there is a McDonld's on the corner walking distance.
But the winner for us to return was the make your own waffle, the breakfast was a WINNER.
If you want to see DC, stay here.
We will return again, Soon.

We stayed at your hotel this past week. Just to let you know the good and the not so good! We found the hotel to be in a good location for commuting into the Wash DC area. Strong points were: van availability to and from Metro (good and courteous drivers), beautiful pool area and good life guard, wonderful breakfast buffet, hospitable desk managers on duty at all times.

What we didn't like: Rooms need to be refreshed. Needed queen size beds for the double beds in room, had an ant problem, TV poor focus.

Otherwise, we had a great stay and would recommend your hotel to others coming to the area.

This was the second time to this location and the experience was better the second time around. The shuttle to the metro was a godsend and the people were extremely friendly and gave us wonderful suggestions for places to eat. Breakfast was super as now they added hot meal. Our room was great always clean and we had coffee and a refrigerator. My husband got to practice his Spanish with the staff and it was much appreciated. All in all we had a great vacation and will be back again. We would highly recommend the location to anyone.
