Positive Reviews

Friendly staff

Guests find the staff at the hotel very pleasant to deal with, commenting that they're always happy to offer assistance with recommendations, travel and route options, room problems or car rentals, making for a very easy and hassle-free stay.

Good breakfast

Guests really appreciate that the breakfast the hotel serves is complimentary and comes with a variety of options to fill up on for the day. While the food is "standard" hotel fare, many say that it's worth taking advantage of for the choice alone.

Great value

For an alternative to the pricier hotels in downtown DC or Georgetown, the Comfort Inn Ballston is a great choice as it's still only a short distance from the city and there's a free shuttle service that takes guests to the Ballston Metro Station, from which it's an easy ride to all the attractions DC has to offer.

Negative Reviews

Slow Wi-Fi

Unfortunately some guests note that the Wi-Fi signal can be hard to get a good handle on, so those guests who need the internet for business during their stay might want to make sure they have plenty of cellular data, or they may want to pay the extra fee for a faster internet connection.

Needs some updating

Some guests feel that while the hotel is generally clean and well-maintained, the rooms could do with a bit of sprucing up as the furnishings and decor come off a little dated in comparison to some other hotels. However, most guests concede that this factor doesn't negatively affect their overall stay at the hotel.

Air-conditioning units struggle

Some guests say that the air-conditioning units in their rooms can be inefficient at cooling, which in the humid Virginia weather can be somewhat inconvenient - so it might be best to keep the windows open where possible.
