I booked into the hotel as there were no budget hotels available in the centre of Washington owing to an event and it was offering a good rate. The hotel itself was fine, no trouble with the room and helpful staff at reception. It is ten minutes walk from the metro. Free breakfast. The main problem was with shuttle. I... More

When every hotel in the neighbourhood costs you over 200 bucks, I think this is a great deal! The staff were all very nice and when we reported a problem with the bathtub, they almost came immediately to fix it. Sure the hotel is not trendy and doesn't have much amenities, but this is an excellent place if you're looking... More

I stayed for a couple of nights here during the business trip here. The place looks somewhat weird outside, more like a rundown motel than a hotel. They put a lot of stuffs in the room that are either not working or very old: coffee maker is broken, window airconditioner loud as a motorcycle that provides very little cool even... More

this hotel terrified me from the exterior but it is very clean and the staff was extremely nice. also the breakfast was decent and free. what's mind boggling is how they don't spend even a small amount of money so that it is cosmetically more appealing. the front office window is broken in about 10 places, my room had a...

Very reasonable basic accommodation, halfway between two Metro stops. It (nearly) fronts a busy highway but I was not bothered by the traffic noise. Decent free breakfast and decent wifi connection. Five minute walk to the nearest restaurants and ten minute walks to Metro.

Extremely convenient location. Clean rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff - I have been there a couple of times and Eden and Paul have been great. The breakfast was only a bit disappointing but everything else was good. I definitely will stay there again.

For a $70 per night hotel room, it was about what I expected. It's a little far from restaurants and the metro (about 3/4 of a mile to the nearest of either), and the sound of planes flying overhead could keep light sleepers awake. However, the room was pretty clean, and the biggest shortcoming was that everything was just old.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn of Rosslyn for three nights and were very pleased with the room. It was very clean and served our needs while we were in Arlington for the birth of our grand daughter. The beds and room were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small and retro but also clean and very adequate.... More

I just got back from my trip to DC. Since I had to restrict my spending, I had to look for an inexpensive hotel. Inn of rosslyn is a very unassuming place. It is perfect if you are looking only for a place to spend your nights at while exploring the city by the day. breakfast was bagels, donuts, orange... More
