“Better than the fancier hotels”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

I usually stay at conference hotels and this was no different; however, I chose it because it was the cheapest hotel on the conference list. We were not sorry at all for choosing it! Service was personable, quick and efficient. The only problem I had was some confusion with the amount charged to my card, but I think that will work itself out. Free wifi, free breakfast and very good location. Our room was away from the street which meant no view, but that was fine. It was cleaner than one of the reviews, just obviously a little worn on the edges. I always have problems with my hotel keys getting demagnetized and when this has happened at the large hotels it means a long trip back to the desk, but since this Comfort Inn is so small, my trip back to the desk was quick! I get so tired of paying for everything in the big hotels like $20 for breakfast, so it was nice to get the day started with a free breakfast. The free breakfasts at most of these chain hotels is nothing to get excited about, but it was fresh and satisfying.

I was in D.C. on a business trip for a week. My Husband is a Diamond Member who stays at Comfort Inns often, and knows the good ones. This definitely is an excellent one. The rooms are small, but clean, comfortable, and met all my needs, including work space. The Business area for clients is open 24/7, as well as the inside mini market and microwave, should you get hungry and don't want to go out. The service is excellent, and so is the full (including hot) breakfast every morning. This hotel is conveniently located, and with the amenities offered, is a good choice for the cost.

Located in a well street lit & clean residential community; minutes from public transportation & central to all must visit neighborhods & landmarks. Rooms are old, small & decent. The common area are neat & quite. Friendly, courtesy staff. All basic wants are available in-room heating/cooling system, flat LG TV, decent non-adjustable shower head that sprays tepid clear water.

This was my first visit to Washington DC as part of a group visit.
The hotel is ideally located. Good shops, bars and restaurants are close by. The city centre is a 15 - 20 minute walk away and the nearest Metro is a 10 minute walk. Everything is really close by.
The hotel itself is clean & tidy and I have no complaints at all about my room. My top tip would be some ear plugs at night as you do get the odd siren from the police/fire.
Staff were friendly and very helpful both personally and to us as a group. Special mention to Dantise and Nelly who most helpful.
Breakfast is buffet style. It can be a bit chaotic when busy but food and drink is plentiful so with a little patience it is not a problem.
My trip to Washington was enhanced by having a great place to stay.

As we arrived we were greeted by nelly. She is very pleasant and helpful for those not from the area.
As we went upstairs, we found our room to be small but perfect for two but looking closer we found the sheets to be dirty with little hairs the shower curtain had hair and soap scum so we called the front desk and a gentleman came and handed us some new sheets I asked if he would like to come in and is there a new shower curtain and he stated no and walked away... I called the front desk and we moved rooms the second was smaller but again fine for two bed was clean bathroom again had a dirty shower curtain and hair on the blinds behind the door and in the tub this room also has a giant water stain you can't miss on the ceiling that could easily be painted. This time I went to the desk and asked Anisha for a shower curtain and cleaner ( because I knew no one was going to offer to clean the bathroom from the bed experience) she explained that didn't have cleaner on her hour( which she could benefit because in this situation I could of used it and also she could clean example the hand prints everywhere in the lobby and elevators at night) so I asked to see another room this room the bed had giant yellow stains on the sheets (see picture) I gave up we stayed in the bathroom that was dirty.

You will find throughout the hotel things like scuff marks water marks on ceilings carpet fraying finger prints details that with attention to detail could be fixed

This property on a good note is decorated well has tons of potential to be a better place. It has a great free breakfast the breakfast room is too cool free fast wifi and a great location with a 6.00 taxi ride to White House or less than a mile to walk

Probably would not stay again but overall a one night stay might be ok

We had a bad first experience because the old man working valet was a joke. He kept telling us to move our car around, when that is his job while he talks on his cell phone. We got so frustrated that we decided to turn our car in a day early so that we do not have to deal with him. Once we were in the hotel, it is small but nice. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are small but for the price you pay, it is worth it. Free internet, breakfast, gym and laundry is great and you don't even need a car when you are here because you are in the middle of town. You can hear a lot from the streets at night but it is worth it.
