“Decent, but Lacking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Decent room. Clean. OLD bathroom, but in very good condition. There were some bugs in the bathroom. Biggest issue was that I could NEVER access internet at hotel for three nights. Usually the wireless signal was non-existent, but even when it was low, the password would never access. The office staff were of no help.

Looks right out of 1958; great place! Difficult to get in & out of property, but well worth it. MATTRESSES were in good condition, but far too soft. NO BUGS FOUND ! Would have preferred exhaust fans in bathrooms. Our entire party was well pleased with each room. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: CALL AHEAD & talk to front desk staff. Tell them what you seek.

Looking at the hotel at first sight, one might think "what the hell have I done". But please don't let the outside appearance fool you.

The room was could use some updating as far as decorating is concerned but the room is CLEAN. The bed was also comfy. The hotel staff were great and very helpful.

Also the location is just a stone throw away from the Metro Station.

The room was always clean, but it smelled since we got there, and it never went away. The staff at the front desk were nice, but there is no night shift, so you better not need anything at night.
We kept asking for an extra towel but they never got it to us. It's located near Rosslyn metro station, and to the bus station that goes to the Dulles airport.

Room Tip: Floor level to avoid stairs.

Eden gave me outstanding customer service. She was very friendly and helpful. She made me feel at home. She greeted me with a good morning and smile. Whenever I left, she always said good-bye, have a nice day. Thank you Eden! Mike Trochan, New Jersey

Had a very comfortable stay and was very impressed with the cleanliness and the help from the front desk (Judy). She gave us information and advice that we, as "first timers", really appreciated. She definitely helped make the stay all the more enjoyable and hospitable. Rooms were comfortable and clean, location was convenient to Metro Train (10 - 12 minute walk), Marine Memorial (10 minute walk) and Arlington Cemetery (20 minute walk). Neighborhood was safe and there were some restaraunts within walking distance as well. Nice place to stay and would definitely consider staying ther again in the future. If you're a light sleeper the planes flying overhead may bother you a little but the pluses definitely outweigh the negatives. And the price was very reasonable compared to other hotels, inns and motels in the area. I definite 4 star.

Stayed at the Inn of Rosslyn because good reviews and good prices for the DC area. Nothing special at hotel but a clean and comfy place to sleep. Quick free breakfast got me on my way in the morning. This place is walking distance to Rosslyn metro. They have a shuttle but didn't really run when I needed it. It is an easy walk though. Seems to be safe at night. I thought noise from the highway in front would be too much but I slept like a baby. I recommend this hotel. The lady at the front desk Martine was super friendly and helpful. This place is convenient, price is right, and has a friendly staff.

Room Tip: second floor on side is good
