Comfort Inn Ballston, Washington
Nice place to stay near DC.
Nice location in Arlington for those wanting to visit DC. Walking distance from Metro Station, and if you don't feel like walking 8 minutes, they even have a free shuttle every hour that goes to the station. We stayed here for spring break, and it worked out perfectly for us.

Good location for metro access
Close to metro, free parking and very convenient if you do not want to drive but take the metro to visit attractions

Ok but bed too soft
Overall quite good, especially for location, staff courtesy, and sumptuous and very crowded breakfast. Slept poorly because bed too soft and pillows too hard and large.

Great staff, nice clean room
Good breakfast, very friendly staff. The room was nice and clean. The only issue that we had were the pillows weren’t very comfortable, not very firm at all. The local area doesn’t have much to do within walking distance. The shuttle to the metro is great, but it’s a pretty long walk back to the hotel after walking around DC all day.
