The positives: Room was very clean and very spacious. Parking was convenient. Continental breakfast was good. Staff was pleasant and helpful. The price was better than other hotels I looked at. The cons: our key wasn't working. It would either not work at all and we'd have to go back down to get a new one (several times), or it...

Stayed at Comfort Inn because its the only hotel in the DC area that doesn't charge an outrageous price! Everyone at the front desk was extremely welcoming and accommodating from check-in to check-out! The room was beautiful, spacious, and squeaky clean. Breakfast was plentiful and had a great delicious variety with hot and cold options. Fast and free wifi. The...

Hotel is clean and rooms are spacious and comfortable. The shuttle is every hour and will take you to the metro station but you can honestly walk to it. We didn't realize how close we were to the hotel so we called the front desk from the metro station and asked when the shuttle would be there. They sent one...

We stayed one night at the Comfort Inn in Ballston in late September. The room was neat, clean, and comfortable. It is an easy drive to Arlington, "the City", restaurants, and the Mall. The neighborhood is safe, walkable. You can park off-street in the parking garage, although they were owing some renovation and taped off some spaces making it rather...

Very convenient, walking distance to Metra with a shuttle also available. The free breakfast had lots of choices, the internet/WiFi was good, the room was clean and comfortable. The price was very reasonable for the Wash DC area.

With the rapid expansion of new buildings in this area of Ballston, it's easy to forget that this comfort inn was one of the original hotels. Coming back for the first time in a few years it was pleasantly surprising to see it looking so good... Maybe the hotel justified the $300/night cost after all? Unfortunately not... non functional cooling...

I was originally hesitant staying at this hotel, knowing that Comfort Inn was not known to have uniform cleanliness across the hotel brand. However, I found out that the room was clean; I couldn't feel dust on the carpet. The property itself was not a new property, however, it was really well maintained. The breakfast was good; there was the...

I stayed here for 2 nights while attending meetings nearby. The Comfort Inn is a good budget hotel. Rooms / bathrooms are clean and up to date. Internet speeds are good, and internet is free. Free breakfast is provided; nothing fancy, but certainly adequate. The hotel is a short walk from Ballston Metro, and there are several decent restaurants, etc.,...
