Stayed one night in May 2017 during an immigration interview. In hotel is within 3 minutes walk to the Arlington immigration office. The room was impeccably clean and spacious. The manager (Evelyn) was very friendly and helpful.

Good starting point to explore Washington D.C. Close to US memorial Iwo Jima and Arlington cemetery by walk in 10 minutes. Continue walking via Arlington Memorial bridge to the National Mall in 15 minutes. Heart of the US administration with White house and the government related buildings are reached. Alternatively, museums along the National Mall up to the US Capitol....

Great location! 15 minutes from 2 Metro stops. 50's style motel with small rooms (pink and black tile in bathroom). Great value considering prices for fancier hotels in the area. Lots of good dining in area too. I'd stay here again.

A great location for anything in the Northern VA area of DC. It is dated in almost every way, but it is clean and friendly, and has all the necessary amenities. Do note please that it is on Fairfax Ave. rather than Arlington Blvd. Arlington Blvd. Will get you close but not right there. One thing I don't like is...

The Inn of Rosslyn is a clean, discount motel, a short walk (10 min or so) from the metro. One thing to keep in mind - the D.C. Metro area is expensive. While the amenities are dated, I would rather spend money experiencing the city than on a place to stay. If you have a car, free parking is available....

Convenient location within walking distance from the metro station, very reasonable price, the room looked a little outdated but was clean and comfortable. Good value for the price. Stayed there 3 times and never was disappointed.

Location is everything when in DC. This was within walking distance from the Rosslyn metro station. Room and furniture are very dated, although I kind of liked the 50's style bathroom. Yes it's dated but it was clean, free wifi, free parking, had friendly staff and it's about $100 cheaper per night than other rooms I looked at. I think...

Yes, it's basically a 50's old fashioned motel like ones I have stayed in on Route 66 30-50 years ago. I got an excellent price, was treated well by the staff and the room was clean and comfortable. The Metro is about a 10 minute walk and there are plenty of great places to eat in walking distance as well....

I don't know why there are so many bogus reviews of this hotel out there. I was shocked when I actually saw it. It is like a 1950s roadside motel, which would be OK for $50 a night, but I paid $130 (based on the numerous 5 star reviews). It is relatively spartan, the bathroom has no counters, so I...

Why are reviewers giving this place more than 1 star? Because when you check in they ask you to rate it 5 stars on Tripadvisor! Come on people! Don't bring families here. Breakfast is a joke. This place should rent for $50 per night - it is a very good stop for truckers. Plastic mattress covers - come on!
