Hotels Near Ballston Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Comfort Inn
Why: Low Rates, Free Wifi, Breakfast, Parking

There are five hotel options near the Ballston Metro station. For this premier location we suggest looking at the Comfort Inn because it offers free parking and on average has the lowest rates. This is one of the best hotels in Arlington, VA that offers free parking. Guests will get a free breakfast with hot items and there is free wifi. A vast majority of all online reviews are positive for the Comfort Inn, however one drawback is that it takes 10 to 12 minutes to walk from the hotel to the Ballston Metro. Each of the other choices are closer, especially the Hilton which sits right on top of the Metro Station. If you want to stay closer to the Metro the Holiday Inn is usually slightly more expensive than the Comfort Inn, but the Holiday Inn charges for parking. Weekend travelers should weigh their options before committing to the Comfort Inn because rates at the Hilton, Westin, and Residence Inn all drop. The Residence Inn was built in 2015 and is a new hotel. Regardless, most guests will appreciate the savings with the Comfort Inn and we suggest all travelers look here first if they are planning to stay in Ballston.
