We chose this Inn because of it's location and price. We were visiting someone around the block from here. What a throwback in time. Old beds, old carpet, 50's style bathroom with green tile. Staff was pleasant and our room was ready when we arrived early. We were on the first floor, walk up, no elevator. Since we weren't spending...

Be careful here. This seems to be two different kinds of hotel on one cramped lot. One of them is an old fashioned construction, that is up external worn cement stares behind a security door with a sign that says it will be locked after 10 PM. Rooms have outside facing doors along a cement porch, and the one we...

We appreciate your concerns. Our south wing has great exposure with many rooms overlooking the pool area. These rooms are preferred by many extended stay guest as they often appreciate the privacy of the secure, exterior access, larger rooms and additional amenities. However, I am pleased that we were able to accommodate your change request. While our parking is limited,...

This is an older, somewhat outdated and run down hotel. The room was small and a bit shabby, but the bed was comfortable, the room was quiet and the temperature comfortable. Had it been a European hotel, I might have seen it as charming in a Fawlty Towers sort of way. There was a refrigerator and a coffee maker. The...

Wonderful friendly staff and conveniently located near Walter Reed, which was handy for my husband's medical treatment. They showed compassion towards us even making sure we had everything we needed including transportation.

I wouldn't call this hotel perfect, but for the affordable pricing this was really a nice place to stay. I checked in quickly with a friendly front desk staff member and got to my room. Not super spacious rooms, but enough to move around in - two people would have been a bit cramped though (in a King), I suspect....

I recently stayed at the American Inn Bethesda, this was my 5th visit there. I have noticed each time I stay it has improved with each visit. The location is great, close to NIH and Walter Reed Hospitals and walking distance to the Metro (although they have a very convenient shuttle service ) .Close to many restaurants and now a...

My friend and I came to Bethesda for a show. She needs a wheelchair for mobility. The front desk clerk was very cold. Our room was in the same corridor as someone else noted just outside the restaurant. The door sill was too high to easily get the wheelchair over and the door would not stay open. The hall and...

Great hotel, attentive staff, clean comfortable rooms and a very grateful price. Free breakfast, free shuttle and parking is what sold me on booking with the hotel. Better than all that was the hotel staff as a whole. Professional, knowledgeable and personable. Would stay here again.

I have stayed in budget locations before, but this was the smallest room I have ever seen. First off, there is NO PARKING here. They have a tiny lot in front and a miniature covered "garage" with about 7 more spots. We traveled on the weekend so there was a public lot that was free, across the street behind a...

I loved it. I stayed for one night, checked in very late and checked out later than 12noon as I overslept (the staff very kindly let me sleep in and let me leave later than 12noon). The room was very restful and very, very comfortable. The bed was a bit too soft, though, and the pillows not firm at all...
