Terrific location (5 min walk to Ft Meyer/N Lynn St). Underground parking- free (left the car there during my meeting). Excellent front desk staff- fast check in. Terrific internet, tv, bed was ok.

Average size room (300 sq ft?).

Big clean rooms, subway is about 3 min walk, the Mall is couple stations away. Very good price!

Half of the Hotel is a real hotel, the other half is a motel style rooms. Rooms are great, but you enter your room from the street and you can hear the neighbours

This was a good hotel which gave me what I needed. Clean and friendly.

To get around DC you really need to take the metro, and it also a bit of a walk to the nearest metro station.

Fantastic location across from the Iwo Jima monument / Arlington Cemetery and half an hours walk at a good pace from the Mall with most of Washington D.C's attractions on it. Plenty free parking and local amenities good. Nice up to date rooms with plenty space and good bathroom facilities including 2 sinks! On site Italian restaurant / takeaway very good and reasonable. 24 hour reception with coffee prepared.

Room service cost and charges high (You can collect at a much lower price from the on site restaurant or go to local takeaways that are nearby).

I loved the beds!! They were so soft and comfortable. Whenever we had a question the staff was more than willing to help us out.

The water smelled like chlorine and it never really got cold enough to drink.

Nice and clean hotel close to a subway station, Iwo Jima Memorial and Arlington Cemetery. 7Eleven grocery store located nearby. It's a nice walk to the Mall, so we didn't even need to use the subway.

I liked the proximity of this hotel to DC attractions. The hotel vicinity is clean and safe. Hotel provides free parking, which is bonus in DC area. The rooms are not big, but cozy. The rooms has fridge and Microwave oven, which you can use to store your homemade supply. Overall it was a nice stay.

Very friendly and helpful Staff from front of house to housekeeping. Very convenient for Iwo Jima Memorial Arlington National Cemetery and Metro. 15-20 minutes walk in either direction. Doesn't serve meals but, there is a restaurant next door or there is Ruby Tuesdays where we got a couple if excellent meals.. Can get coffee in reception from a machine if you can't be bothered to use the coffee making facilities in room. Room and bathroom clean. Would stay here again.

It is a great location if you are visiting the tourist spots in DC. The metro is a short walk, and the hotel provides free parking. And the kids liked the indoor pool.

A decent and reasonable priced hotel at a good location to start your Washington sightseeing tour.

The "pool" closes when the "lifeguard" takes a break. Come on, it's just small hotel pool.

The staff were really friendly, the reception area was good. The bed was really comfy. The hotel was close to Arlington cemetery and park.

The corridor where my room was based had a nasty stale smell.

The room had a horrible musty/ moldy smell which was nauseating. Front desk was informed. No other rooms were available. They sprayed the room which just temporarily masked the Oder Awful Experience

Mike, the pool attendant, gave us very good advice about stores, restaurants and how to get to the metro. Also, he told us what stop to get off in Washington each day to be closer to what we wanted to see.

Very convenient (about 1/2 mile walk) to dc Metro with easy access to Capitol area. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Ledo's restaurant next door was great.

It's an old motel with a so-so pool (has a life guard who told us "there is to be no splashing or jumping" - really, me and my two grandkids were the only ones in the pool and we werent splashing you!) and no "free" breakfast other than 24 hour/day coffee bar.

The staff were friendly and accommodating. the attached restaurant was handy and provided good meals at value prices.

The pool area was not very tidy compared to the rest of the hotel and the water was a bit cloudy. The lifeguard was not as friendly as the rest of the staff.

Great convenience to metro, Arlington parking for Big Bus services , Iwo Jima Memorial and a good restaurant on the property. The presence of a microwave and mini-frig were also greatly appreciated.

A daily complimentary breakfast would have been nice for the price of the room. Since we'd been here before, I came prepared though with my own breakfast supplies.

The location was good a short walk to the station.

A little noisy as the doors were thin and there was a large group of school kids wandering about till after midnight. Would have been better to locate them all together.

The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Dwight was especially friendly. Very close to the Metro, and the room was very clean.

The beds need to be updated. Ours had a dip in the middle which made it a bit uncomfortable. The only other thing was the shower. The water would go hot then cold, then back again. Didn't stay warm, just hot or cold. Just a bit outdated, but would stay there again.

I took the Metrobus 5A from Dulles International Airport and went off at Rosslyn Metro Center. From there, it was just 7-8 minutes walk to the hotel. From Rosslyn you can take the Orange or Blue subway-line to most of the tourist attractions. You can walk to the Iwo Jima monument and Arlington National Cemetary in 10 minutes (or take the blue subway line from Rosslyn to Arlington Cemetary). I did not encounter any problems with the free in room WiFi during my 5 day-stay. More than 50 TV channels, mini fridge and microwave oven were a plus. There is a supermarket called Safeway located at Wilson bvd where I bought some food and beverages. I did not use the swimming pool, nor the facilities in the fitness room so no comments here. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and greeted me everytime they saw me at the reception area. If I come back to Washington DC, I will stay at Iwo Jima again.

Good location, 10 minutes walk to subway station, Rosslyn. Clean, comfortable hotel. Complimentary coffee all day. Very good value for money.

Not much choice for food nearby except for pizza restaurant on site which is very good.
