Comfort Inn Ballston, Arlington
Good experience.
Good room size and furniture. The TV doesn't work. Good breakfast.

Convenient location, good stay
Appreciated the location and free parking, close enough to everything important including the Metro. If you need quiet be sure to request a room on the backside as you are on a main road subject to occasional ambulance/police/hot rod/motorcycle noise. Clean but complimentary breakfast area can get overwhelmed at 8AM. Universal sanitized TV remote was annoyingly and functionally limited (unable to direct address channels).

Great stay-except for the mattress
Great hotel. It was very clean and breakfast was good. My only complaint is our mattress was lumpy and uncomfortable - and my spouse felt the same way. Other than that everything was excellent.

Comfortable and Convenient
This was a comfortable place to stay; however I think we were given the least desirable room in the hotel. This room had one small window that made the room seem rather dark, but we were gone most of the time sightseeing, so this was not a huge deal. The AC did not work in our room and it was stuffy at night. The AC unit was archaic and had a knob missing on the unit. The next morning, I noticed the carpet was wet underneath the unit and mentioned it to the front desk. They moved us to a new room across the hall that was much brighter (2 windows), had a newer AC unit that worked and was maybe slightly larger than the previous room. Comfortable, clean, convenient location to DC, great service by all staff we came across.
