Nice place, nice price. The free breakfast every morning was much appreciated. It really helped me cut costs on my trip. The staff is very friendly and helpful with directions. There's also a free shuttle to the metro that I took advantage of daily.

Very comfortable hotel. The rooms are spacious, and clean (except a few could use dusting more and a good thorough vacuuming. They should use spray to cover up when the rooms have a musty smell, it get suspicious. Overall it is a good place to stay. You can walk to shops and food. It is close to highway and public...

What you would expect in a basic hotel -- clean room (surprisingly large -- room 202), free internet, lots of outlets and USB ports, free breakfast, about 12 min from the metro. Friendly and helpful deskstaff. Fitness center was 24 hours, but tiny (3 machines, was fully in use on two random checks 6-7 AM).

This was a great find! Location was perfect and was a short walk to the metro, also had several restaurants within a short walking distance. The room was much larger than we expected and was updated and clean. The best part...FREE PARKING!! The breakfast was also very sufficient and we enjoyed our stay very much.

This hotel was a good value for the expense. Nice, clean room. Limited TV Channels. Smallish bathroom. Within walking distance of restaurants. The breakfast is a typical mix of fruit, pastries, eggs, waffles, etc. We walked up the street to the Holiday Inn to catch the tour bus into Washington. Next trip to D.C., I would probably try to find...

Clean, comfortable modest hotel. Free parking (inside and outside) is a plus. Although we did not eat there, breakfast is included. Beds are really comfortable and the sheets a high thread count and very fresh. We got a great weekend rate. I'd definitely stay there again.

This Comfort Inn is in excellent condition overall, with pleasant rooms, friendly staff, and an outstanding breakfast. I chose it after reading TripAdvisor reviews of some of my usual, similarly priced hotels, that reflected some concerns -- while this was better rated. It deserves the good rating! The location is great, with convenient free parking on prem (another value feature)...

Excellent hotel, especially for the price. Perfect for those who like saving money by staying outside the city and choosing to take the Metro in. The station is a ~10 minute walk away; a free shuttle is available but only runs hourly. Room was clean but relatively poorly ventilated. Bathroom fan doesn't exhaust to outside so humidity builds up, especially...
