The Inn of Rosslyn is one of the few small independently run family motels in the heart of Rosslyn conveniently located next to the metro and vibrant restaurants along Wilson Boulevard. In terms of value, it cannot be beat. The price is right with simple rooms that are very clean with outstanding service. Even the towels in the bathrooms are carefully folded and ruffled inviting you in and showing an underling effort to attention to detail.
Built in the late 1950s, it brings back hints of old time travels and a microcosmic view of what Rosslyn once looked like with its many small businesses and restaurants mixed in with the brick houses. Most impressive are the bathrooms with their small ceramic tile interior finishes that are carefully maintained to include the grout retaining its spotless cement colors. Clearly, someone has taken a lot of pride maintaining this building over the years, to include the exterior walkways. After experiencing this old time gem one can take a five minute walk to Wilson Boulevard and enjoy sushi, a “hell burger”, Italian dishes, or Lebanese food at many of the modern restaurants in the new Rosslyn.
Every time I enter the front desk – reception area with its large windows, I have experienced a warm welcome from the staff and especially the manager, Judy, who has a pleasant non urban greeting making you feel comfortable and truly appreciated. If you need any support they are always willing to help.
I can say many more good things about this place and highly recommend it for families, couples, or individuals looking for value and convenience just across the river from Washington D.C. It is a five to fifteen minute drive to the Mall, White House, Georgetown, and Arlington Cemetery. For those seeking quiet, the low sounds of traffic from highway 50 are not that significant and can be overcome with turning on the TV. Also the traffic is all but gone by 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM.
