This was a terrible hotel. The room had an odd odor and the bathroom had ants. The manager and the staff are so rude. I was asling to switch rooms and they refused to even do that. The pool was disgusting! It was not clean. I have canceled all future stays at this hotel!

We had a great stay at the Best Western. Very close to the Metro so easy to get in and out of Washington. Room was fine, well kept and serviced. Front desk very helpful.

This is the third time my husband and I have stayed here at Best Western Rosslyn/wo Jima. We had previously stayed at other hotels near by and had thought they were good, until one time we called our old place and they were booked. Our son is buried at ANC so it is important to us to stay in this general location since ANC will be the only place we will be going while we are here. So I called Best Western and thank God they had a room. It was much cheeper than what we had been paying, much cleaner and the staff did not make us feel like we were a burden to them when we asked a question. We are sold on Best Western. When we come to visit our Heros grave we will be staying here.. A Heros Mom.

Room Tip: I Prefered the rooms where parking out side was best. I was not comfortable parking in he garage.

Hotels in the DC area are expensive, and the Best Western looked like an affordable option for my family. While access to the Metro was fine, the room itself was sub-par. In particular, there were ants in the bathroom, and the shower varied between hot and cold every 30 seconds, making showers almost impossible to take.

I stayed here 2 nights while visiting DC. The location was fairly easy to get to from the Rosslyn metro station, which was a quick ride to DC. When checking in, the person at the desk was helpful and asked if I needed information on how to get to the metro or to DC, but I had already researched that. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. My first night there I had some of the best sleep I had gotten in a very long time. If I visit the area again, I would not hesitate to stay here. If you are traveling alone, try to avoid walking back to the hotel at night since parts of the street are not too well lit.
