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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I had no complaints with the Residence Inn Ballston, which is unusual for me. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The hotel was very quiet, which surprised me being right in the middle of the downtown area. There are a number of restaurants within walking and the area felt very safe. Two metro stops are about .5 mile walk. Breakfast was basic, but the staff was always available to clear away dishes, replenish food and make things orderly.

The hotel is nice and quiet. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was decent but could stand to have a bit more variety. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and found it to be pretty spacious for our family of 4. You have to use your keycard in the elevator and even to access the bathrooms off the lobby so be sure to have it handy.

Room Tip: Parking is in a garage under the hotel. Spots are a bit tight. Local taco restaurant has good food.

This hotel was perfect for our family of three. Having stayed at a few hotels post COVID I can say that this was the most pleasant stay we've had recently. The staff were incredibly friendly and the rooms and facilities were very clean. Breakfast was plentiful but there are a lot of fantastic places walkable nearby as well. It is also a short walk to the metro. There is also a cute playground and park across the street Now for the bad. This place needs a face-lift. It doesn't even look dated but some of the furnishings are in disrepair. Both dining chairs in our room had holes in them, and you could tell that the cabinets were extremely cheap because they were all chipped and some were even water damaged. That aside, I would still stay at this location and recommend it due to the convenience of having a full kitchen and being walkable.

Residence Inn by Marriott Arlington Ballston Arlington 851803627 Situated in a great area with tons of restaurants within walking distance. Easily accessible with a nearby metro stop. Front desk & cleaning staff was very good. They always responded to our needs. Breakfast was good too, varied every now & then. Breakfast ladies were very efficient esp Mariela who always did her job with a smile. During our weeklong stay, we found 1 incident of a dog poop in one of the 2 elevators. And it was left un picked by the owner. Hotel finally attended to it but it was a horrible sight. It's a pet friendly facility but the owners need to consider other's convenience as well. Otherwise very pleasant stay at the hotel.

This is a convenient hotel, especially for families and pet owners. It’s near a park, a library, numerous restaurants, and the metro, and the suites have convenient kitchenettes. Unfortunately, it’s clear that standards are falling. Cleaning is more every other day, and our room was missing basic items like dish soap. The breakfast is not as generous as it used to be. The patio is in a state of disrepair, full of weeds and broken glass, and we even saw a dead rat. Some laundry machines were broken.

We stayed in the property knowing this is not 5 or 4 start even. it accommodated us and had to call everyday to make sure someone came and made and cleaned the rooms. even then some of the utensils were not so clean. that all I was still ok with because of location and the fact we had two connecting rooms for myself my husband and my family and of three daughters. What I found completely and utterly unacceptable is this. when we check out on the 15ty. of July my family and I left two swaddle blankets for my 10 year old daughter which are her security blankets that she never travels without as well as my poncho. i called them and reached out immediately early morning the 16th and they said they never found anything and I asked for them to check again. they asked me to call again. i called again and they kept on telling me they never found anything and that they tried everything ( clearly not) I remember leaving that poncho and I know exactly where I left it. We remember leaving other stuff in that room that we didn't want. apparently there wasn't anything to report. No swaddle blanket no poncho no sneaker ( the ones we left on purpose) no shampoo and conditioner ( new bottles only used once) nothing was found according to them!! let me say this.. it easy for you to stay and it's an ok lace with mediocre service but make sure you get everything or else it's lost forever!!! Never staying there again. EVER!!! i never wrote reviews but this time from that kind of response I got for following up on this I just had to! i mean my stuff was gone even though we were nice to staff and tipped well! it was still gone!!! unbelievable!!!!

3-year-old granddaughter, who swims multiple times per week at both indoor and outdoor pools without incident, slipped and fell at this property’s pool. Split skin open by her eye. EMS was called. Taken to Children’s Hospital Emergency Room where they put in stitches. Front desk was VERY unhelpful. Didn’t know location of nearest hospital, vague about location of nearest urgent care. Happened on first night of 4 night stay. No one followed up to see if she was okay. Marriott blocked my review on their website. No foul language. Nothing but facts. VERY disappointing!

We came to Arlington to see family after a three year hiatus and had a lovely experience at this hotel. It was clean and comfortable, and everyone treated us well! Such a nice staff and great facilities, and in the center of the Ballston neighborhood. Well located and a lovely place to stay.

This is one of the nicest Residence Inn properties that I have stayed at. It is very clean. The rooms are spacious and really feel like a mini apartment. There are many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and there is a park/playground right across the street for families who want to give there small children some time to run around. I would highly recommend this hotel to families and business travels as well.

The hotel is a new property. Very clean and updated! Downtown Ballston shops and restaurants are minutes away by foot. The Metro is less than 10 minutes walking as well. The staff are super friendly and extraordinarily helpful with any request.
