This hotel was everything my boyfriend and I were looking for - plus more! We had originally booked the Days Inn Pentagon but after reading about all the bed bug problems they were having we decided to cancel and book at the Comfort Inn Pentagon because it seemed a lot more reliable and bug free!
Upon arrival we did have to circle the parking lot twice in order to find the Comfort Inn front entrance because it is hidden behind the Best Western as other reviewers have stated. There was more then enough parking for everyone and the lady working at the front desk checked us in quickly and provided us with some great maps and resources for Arlington (where to eat etc.) and Washington. We were provided with our room keys (they provide you with two but you could ask for more if needed) and made our way up to our room which had very modern decor, was extremely clean, and even had brand new flat screen tv! I did not see one bug in our room the entire time we stayed here (4 nights) and when we returned to the room in the evening it was very clean. The wifi in the room was pretty good, however there were a few times that it wouldn't connect properly for me (I was using an iPod touch). The beds were very comfortable and we slept very well.
The pool was great for cooling off after a long day of walking around Washington and was kept clean by the lifeguard on duty. There is a gift shop on site, however we found it to be a bit overpriced so I wouldn't recommend getting your souvenirs here. The breakfast that was provided was way more then we expected - juice, coffee, tea, cereal, apples, oranges, yogurt, fresh waffles, doughnuts, muffins, scrambled eggs, sausage, bagels, and toast. We found a place to sit every morning in the dining room except for the last morning and on this morning they opened up a meeting room right across the hall for us to sit in.
We never had a problem getting on the shuttle in the morning which would take us right to the metro in 5 minutes. The afternoon can be a bit more tricky though when people are coming back for dinner. Almost every day we saw people left behind at the shuttle pick up area and I'm not sure whether another shuttle went back right away or waited until the next scheduled time. The one shuttle's air conditioning was broken which made for some pretty hot rides, but it's a free ride so you can't really complain!
For food, we didn't eat at the on site restaurant for dinner so I can't comment on the quality. If you stay here ask the front desk for a listing of the restaurants in Shirlington (a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk away). Shirlington is a beautiful area of Arlington which has two streets lined with a wide variety of restaurants at a reasonable price. There is also a 24 hour grocery store located here. If you decide to drive park in the parking garage right behind the restaurants - it's free and there's always parking.
Overall I highly recommend the hotel!
