Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The design of the hotel stopped in the 60s. The receptionists don't know how to explain how to get to Washington, that's the minimum. Do not offer help with luggage for older people. Counter workers stand like statues, only know how to charge.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed here as we took our daughter to D.C. for her fall semester and internship. Everything about the hotel that we experienced was high quality. We were treated well by the front-desk staff. Free parking (a huge plus for us as we were traveling with 2 cars) was available. The room was very good size (2 doubles and a sofa bed suite) and very clean. It was within walking distance of the Metro Station to travel without driving. It was within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The breakfast selection was very good. Lots of items (hot and cold) to choose. Would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here when we go to pick up our daughter.

I had not stayed in a Comfort Inn for many years, and none this good. It is at least a 3.5 star hotel. The room was quiet and clean. It was well appointed. The beds were comfortable, each with four pillows. There was a console with a refrigerator and microwave. The HVAC was quiet and effective. There was a comfortable easy chair and desk chair, and a long desk. The room was just big enough for the furniture it held. The bathroom was on the small side, but nice enough with the usual shower tub. Toiletries are fairly minimal but adequate. Towels are large and soft. I didn't have time to sample the breakfast. Check-in was quick, but then it was midnight. I was put up here by Delta when they cancelled my flight, along with many others. I wasn't disappointed. I would stay here again if I needed to be in the area.

Arlington confort inn is Ghetto, smelly, dirty. My room smelt like cigarettes. No customer services. Staff is rude and can't speak English and won't try. I would have went somewhere else but company was paying for it.

Overall this was a lovely hotel and somewhere I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Free parking is a plus in this area, which is definitely not suburban-feeling although it's not in DC proper either. The hotel is a somewhat unique design, on a corner and wrapped around several sides of an above-ground lot and a single level of underground parking, both accessible for guests. Rooms were fresh and clean and well furnished. All the staff I interacted with were pleasant. I stayed for six nights and was quite comfortable. I did request a change of sheets for one bed midweek which never did happen despite the assurances of the front desk that it would, and our keys stopped working at two different occasions during the stay and had to be reissued -- based on what we saw from other guests, the key thing seemed fairly common. Breakfast was high quality and plentiful -- toast, bagels, cream cheese, peanut butter, rotating hot foods (usually sausage and egg/cheese omelettes or an egg patty), two waffle irons w/ normal and strawberry batter, oatmeal, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, various kinds of cereal + milk, doughnuts/pastries, and more. It was available right at the scheduled start time of 6:30am. Seemed to be fully restored to pre-COVID levels. The hotel has an hourly shuttle that runs to the Ballston-MU Metro station, which is otherwise an easy half-mile walk. The neighborhood is walkable and has many restaurants and bars that are just a few minutes from the hotel on foot. In a car, it's about 15 minutes from the hotel to the White House area. DC hotels tend expensive, and this seemed like a good deal for a solid stay in an accessible location. The few annoyances were minor and the benefits of this location were significant. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good price for a DC-area stay.

My beautiful Suburban was "keyed" (scratched deeply with a sharp object) while parked in the lot with security cameras. The scratch is almost 20 inches long on the drivers side door.. The manager, Joann, didn't seem to care, she actually acted put off. She wouldn't let me view the security footage even though a policeman was present. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

Upon entering the lobby we were greeted by a most pleasant gentleman who checked us in quickly. I believe his name was, Hebron. The next morning he greeted us and directed us to the lovely breakfast area where Anna had prepared a nice selection of foods. During our 4 night stay we were fortunate to speak with Parvin, James, Willie, and Hebron, who were most delightful and helpful in guiding us to local eateries for dinner as well as local transportation choices, and giving us information on Washington DC sights. This hotel is in a central location and we easily got around the city. The only issues we had with the hotel is that we had to ask 3 times to have housekeeping service our room. We had 4 nights worth of wet towels in our bathroom that should have been removed each day. It could have been due to short staffing in the housekeeping department as we saw but a few housekeepers. There were some minor maintenance issues with our room (a lamp & bathroom exhaust fan) but they were addressed quickly. We had an enjoyable stay and would definitely stay at this location again.

This hotel was exactly what I needed. The #1 draw for me was the free parking as DC hotels are ridiculously priced for that. The metro stop is a short walk from the hotel. Breakfast was a nice variety. My room was clean and quiet. I will definitely stay here again when I am in the DC area!

This is a budget hotel, so there is no pool, high end toiletries, valet parking, and gourmet breakfast, but you get what you need at an awesome price. The location is excellent- 10 minute walk to the subway and 15 minutes to Ballston Quarter. There is even shuttle to the subway that runs every hour. Parking is free which is a HUGE asset for this hotel. The room was a good size, clean and quiet. Housekeeping only comes every 3 days. I had to call for extra towels, and they arrived in about 10 minutes. Breakfast was basic with make your own waffles. The only problem we had was they keys did stop working. I just had to go downstairs to get another one. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

First the pros: 1. Great location, you can get to DC sites (Washington Monument; The Hill) in 20 minutes; 2.Ample parking; 3. Relatively clean rooms. Now the cons: 1. when I checked in, the very friendly front desk clerk told me to "load up on the bacon and eggs at the breakfast area" the next morning. Only, the next morning, they were OUT of bacon (and never re-stocked it) AND eggs (restocked one or two what appeared to be plastic disks at a time). There were no apologies from the staff whatsoever. Quite a few angry people (this was a Saturday morning). 2. The next day, ditto. On a SUNDAY morning, they didn't even attempt the bacon, but instead served hash browns with the plastic egg disks. But the Hash Browns ran out and they never re-stocked. 3. Our room wasn't cleaned on Saturday. We didn't have any Kleenex so I had to search out the housekeeper who spoke no English. She motioned toward her cart down the hall where I was to get my own Kleenex. Management needs some work.
