We were quite pleased with our 2 nights. The rooms are spacious and included a microwave, mini-fridge and safe plus all the usual. I needed help with three little personal chores and the staff was terrific. Great breakfast offering including make your own waffles, eggs and sausage, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt and more. Nice location close to all the restaurants and metro and right by the exit from 66. Parking space provided (a big plus over other more expensive hotels in the same neighborhood). All the employees were very friendly and helpful.

Stayed one night on business. The room was unexpectedly spacious. The bathroom was partially updated but still a bit dingy, with a rusty light fixture and door hinges, and a loose shower curtain rod.

There was some noise from the nearby freeway and adjoining rooms, but it was tolerable.

The room was clean, the beds comfortable, and the hot water plentiful. Hallways were bright and clean.

Breakfast was basic but fine.

I guess it is a good value for the DC area at $200/night. It's not too far from the Metro stop, but a a bit of a long hike with luggage.

The Comfort Inn in Ballston, VA is certainly worth more than the two star rating that certain companies have put in their tour guides. The hotel is clean, friendly and just several blocks away from the Metro station. Edwin, at the front desk, does an excellent job in satisfying customer requests and is quite knowledgeable , efficient and polite. Abdul, the manager, takes pride in the hotel and works to meet customer requests also.
The Comfort Inn in Ballston competes with four star hotels in service, cleanliness and breakfast.

Although I have stayed at this hotel in previous years, my most recent stay over this past Easter 2012 weekend reinforced my highly favorable opinion of it. In particular, the helpfulness of the smiling, gracious reception desk staff as well as that of the breakfast room staff caught my pleased attention. My courtyard-view room was remarkably comfortable and quiet. Once again, I would certainly recommend this hotel for visitors to this area.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a courtyard-view room to avoid outside street traffic noise..

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the last few years and it seems to keep getting better. The rooms are more than adequate with comfortable bedding and pillows. Housekeeping service does a nice job of keeping the rooms clean and well stocked. As others have said, the outside of the hotel isn't a whole lot to look at but the service is what keeps me coming back. The breakfast is very well done for a free continental breakfast and offers many options. The front desk staff were among the most helpful of any hotel I've stayed at. The staff went above and beyond to help our group's stay to be convenient for us.
