This Comfort Inn is in excellent condition overall, with pleasant rooms, friendly staff, and an outstanding breakfast. I chose it after reading TripAdvisor reviews of some of my usual, similarly priced hotels, that reflected some concerns -- while this was better rated. It deserves the good rating! The location is great, with convenient free parking on prem (another value feature)...

Excellent hotel, especially for the price. Perfect for those who like saving money by staying outside the city and choosing to take the Metro in. The station is a ~10 minute walk away; a free shuttle is available but only runs hourly. Room was clean but relatively poorly ventilated. Bathroom fan doesn't exhaust to outside so humidity builds up, especially...

Comfort Inn Ballston is an average, comfortable hotel. The location is close to the Metrorail and the area seemed safe. Parking was plentiful and covered. The room insulation wasn't great and the heater was especially noisy. However, I would go back and I do recommend.

chose this hotel for the price and how close it was to my daughters new apartment. What a find!! Nice and helpful staff, free parking (which is hard to find) spotless room with the most comfortable pillows and beds. Great breakfast that included hot food. Coffee 24/7. Free shuttle to the metro. Couldn't have asked for better!! Will always stay...

This was a typical Comfort Inn with all the usual amenities. The room was clean, reception was responsive, parking, microwave, refrigerator all standard. We choose Comfort Inn for their beds and pillows and these were both OK here. Good stay.

The room was excellent., Immaculate, and the beds were just right for a great nights sleep. I am glad that I found this hotel and look forward to future stays. Thanks again to Sheila...

Stayed here for two nights, a couple days apart. Familiar with the hotel and area, as we've stayed here before. Good location, convenient to the Metro and they have shuttle service to the station if you don't want to walk. First room we had I noticed some water damage to the ceiling over the tub/shower. Both rooms were clean and...

This is a good hotel if you're in the DC area and need a good, clean place to stay. It is about 10 minutes walk from the Metro and close to shops and various food outlets. The rooms are sizealble, staff friendly and there is a business centre for most of your needs

We were visiting someone in the Ballston area. This was a surprisingly affordable, and nice property. Easy access, free parking, safe area. Room looked like it had been renovated and the beds were perfect. No complaints at all. Plan to stay here again. Walking distance (no more than 10 minutes, maybe less) to the metro, and retail area.

Stayed here on business. The room was very clean, staff was very courteous. Room was quiet and had easy access to all of Ballston's attractions (mall, food etc.). It is only 10 mins from DC and you can easily take the bus or Metro. Breakfast was ok. Waffles you can make yourself, some eggs and bacon, cereal, donuts , bagels...
