Does not look that good from outside, but room was fine. We got a Saturday night room for $110 total (AAA rate). Short walk to Gerogetown, monuments.

I am writing to let everyone know that the reviews on this hotel are accurate. My family which is quite large (5kids) stayed here for a few nights and we found our stay to be very good. The hotel is clean and and the rooms are above average. The hotel staff as written are very good at giving directions for the attractions and restaurants. Rosslyn Metro is about a five minute walk. There is a Safeway grocery store, starbucks and a host of restaurants all about 5 minutes away. This is a very safe area to walk at night we saw alot of women dog walkers which I thought was a good sign. I would recommend Ruby Tuesdays and Red Hot and Blue for family restaurant meals.
From reading the reviews of others I had lower expectations but was pleasantly surprised.
The pool was a great asset and they have a full time life guard. The hotel also has coffee and water at the front desk all day long. Great job Best Western we would definitely return.

Arrived for a 4 night stay. Had booked an external room with 2 doubles. Room good - aircon nice a chilly <needed to be> and had a good sized fridge and microwave in room

Bathroom and other decor a little dated but everything worked and was clean

Room cleaned thoroughly everyday and all staff encountered were friendly & efficient.
Free wifi worked well and kept in touch with home with video webchats without a problem

Location was excellent; 7 minute walk to Rosslyn Metro - not too uphill either.

Top tips: Pizza and subs good at Ledos - breakfast was ok

Find Santa Fe cafe at 1500 Wilson Blvd, for AMAZING food and service. Dinner was especially excellent - it's a 10mins walk from the hotel and well worth it

Didn't try the pool but for a reasonably priced hotel close to Washington, Iwo Jima Memorial & Arlington Cemetary - you cannot go wrong here

This hotel was great. The room was above average for the price. I wasn't expecting such a nice room. What I thought was particularly great was that there was a fridge and microwave, which is always great if you want to stay under a budget, as we bought things like milk and cereal, and actually had to have a microwave meal one night as we found nowhere was open on thanksgiving except for the convenience store. Around ten minutes walk from the hotel, there were restaurants and stores to go to. After settling in at the hotel quite late at night, we found that the people next door were having some kind of party or there were just a lot of people being very loud. After going to reception, he moved us straight away to another room, which we really appreciated. The hotel was quite close to the metro station too which was convenient.

We stayed at this place during our 3 days visit to DC. We mainly needed a place to sleep & get fresh so we did not have much expectations. Place is decently priced and quite close to public transport. Do not have great expectations... you will get what you pay.

Close by the Rosslyn metro station (10min walk) this is a convenient base for exploring Washington D.C. The rooms are clean and the staff was friendly and very helpful in providing information about the city. The room we stayed in was on the floor above the parking deck underneath the hotel, and apparently also right on top of the ventilation system which made a loud humming noise and made the floor vibrate. On top of that there was a room with electrical installations right next to our room which generated a noticeable 60Hz humming sound. Two doors down the hallway there was an ice dispenser which made another kind of roar. The in-room air conditioner was quite silent compared to these. All of this blended perfectly together to a static noisy roaring sound, which i guess is easier to sleep through than more dynamic/changing noise (like people chattering and doors slamming). But you still wake up in the morning feeling you're in the middle of a factory or the engine room of a cargo ship, and didn't really get the sleep you wanted, which for me is the main purpose of staying in a hotel.

My husband, 11 month old daughter, and I just returned from our trip to DC. This hotel is extremely basic, absolutely zero frills, but the rooms are clean and the staff is exceptional. They were friendly and helpful from start to finish. They switched our room for us from a second floor to a first floor room so we didn't have to lug the baby and stroller up and down as there is no elevator for the outside rooms. There is also no elevator or ramp from the main area to the lobby. To access it, you need to go to an alternate entrance down the little hill and around the corner. That is the only warning I have to give. The location is fantastic...about a 7 minute walk to the metro station. There is a pizza place on site, which I recommend ordering out and taking it back to your room. Not that the dining room is't nice, just the service could be slow at times. Love the fridge and micro in the rooms. The water pressure was great in the shower. The indoor pool was a great way to end a day of walking. Although, again, no frills. It's a pool with a sun room over it but the water is clean and refreshing and the lifeguard was very friendly. Parking was free, which was a huge money saver. You are about a 10 minute walk from Iwo Jima and a 15 minute walk from Arlington Cemetery. I would recommend this place to people who are looking to enjoy the sites, need a clean room to sleep, and don't want to pay for parking and other amenties you really don't need.
