After being disappointed that my wife didn't book us at the DoubleTree, I was repeatedly surprised to find the American Inn of Bethesda to be a welcoming environment. The staff was gracious and accomodating. For an older hotel, the interior was fresh and well appointed throughout, including the unexpected places like the public restrooms and stairwell. Every appliance/fixture, electrical and...

Located among loads of amenities in downtown Bethesda, with easy access to Metro, NIH, Walter Reed. Parking on site is sparse, but public parking is only a block away & free on weekends. The Inn offers limited shuttle service on weekdays, but a free bus conveniently circulates through the downtown area (diagonally across from the Inn). Complimentary breakfast & outdoor...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Older hotel but was pretty clean. Nice breakfast area. We went there for a family reunion and the staff was very accommodating. Easy access to the subway to get down to DC area.

The American Inn is a decent hotel, you get what you pay for. Disappointed by the lack of parking and the location isn't all the great (with exception of the short walk to the metro station, which was broken almost our entire stay). The breakfast was free but very sparse and underwhelming, not the greatest food on the planet. The...

I travel with with a Beatles tribute band called The WannaBeatles. We had the pleasure of spending three days at the conveniently located American Inn.

This little inn is not grand or elegant but it is clean, quiet, secure and comfortable. The breakfast is very good and is served in a cozy little nook that gets plenty of light. Parking is a little bit tight but the limited number of spaces are all extremely convenient to the lobby. The outstanding feature is the staff. Sam,...

American Inn is about a half mile south of the NIH, very convenient for folks visiting the hospital there. The physical plant is 3-4 stars, nice basic clean place. The STAFF however, bumps it up to a solid 5 star. These people are incredibly nice and helpful. They understand the drill at NIH and will help you sort it all...

My family had our family reunion at the hotel and the overall experience was wonderful. The staff was excellent from the time we checked in till we checked out.

We chose the hotel for its location, which was great for doing what we needed to do. We appreciated being able to park for free and have breakfast on site.

Paying $100 a night, I had modest expectations for my stay here. A clean room, competent housekeeping, and basic safety would have been enough. None of those expectations were met.
