“Bargain Motel for DC Sightseeing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I stayed 7 nights. It was great! The motel is an older property but is perfectly maintained, very clean. Comfortable bed, great shower (lots of water pressure), good air conditioning.

The Rosslyn metro is an easy 15 walk from the hotel. There are restaurants, a pharmacy & grocery store a (very steep) 10 minute walk away. Seems like a safe, quiet area.

Includes a simple breakfast of donus, bagels, orange juice & coffee.

Compared to overpriced DC hotels this moel is a BARGAIN.

Nothing fancy, but clean, affordable, convenient for DC sightseeing. Breakfast inthe lobby, a charming and helpful desk attendant, free parking. Walk to the Metro station and ride in. Parking in DC is I possible.

Close to the subway station and to the marine memorial. Clean bathroom, great hot shower, comfortable bed and pillow. Free parking. They don't have an area for breakfast, it's at the reception and they only had bagels, donuts, coffee, tea and milk. It was not a problem for my husband and I because we had breakfast somewhere else. It's an inexpensive option in Arlington.

I have stayed here a few times now and have found it to be well run and kept up. Clean comfy rooms with simple amnesties and a simple continental breakfast in the lobby make this a good catch for vacationers and business types alike. 9 min walk to Iwo Jima statue 15-20 to metro stations and 7-11 and Safeway

The Inn of Rosslyn is the cheapest hotel in the DC area, and it delivers all the basics: clean rooms and bath, close to public transportation (walk to the Rosslyn MTA station/airport bus), good maid service, decent wi-fi, comfy beds, Euro breakfast (free bagels, doughnuts, OJ and coffee), in-room fridge/coffeemaker, and a friendly, helpful staff. Everything works, nothing was broken. I slept well. There's even a good LA-style taco truck just up the street and a market just up the hill. It looks like an old school, no-tell motel, but it's totally legit. I found the front desk staff to be very kind, caring and informative with local tips and recommendations on DC attractions. There's no danger here. I've stayed here twice so far and found it to be a great base of operations. You can do laundry in the apt. building next door (they own it and most of their staff lives there). The Inn of Rosslyn gets lots of international visitors and young travellers who get what this place is about - decent accommodations for a fair price. If you want fancy furniture, a restaurant, a pool, fancy bath amenities, bell hops, and a concierge - go elsewhere and pay for it. There's no excuse for the fussing I heard from some visitors who felt overpromised. Read the reviews, and keep your expectations in check. There is no security, other than the occasional cop car parked in the lot. But it's fine. Really. If you like saving money, good service and decent accommodations, here you go.
