My wife had booked our hotel on a third party site, but when we arrived at the hotel our reservation was not showing as booked. I had an itinerary with the price I orginally reserved my room for on my iPad. A calm and pleasant man named Robert was working when we checked-in on Sunday August 12th. Robert was understanding...

The American Inn is conveniently nested within all of the action in Bethesda, MD. I was in town for Outlaws' concert and this hotel was 0.3 mile away. PERFECT for walking especially since parking is a concern in this busy corridor (and at the hotel). Upon arrival, I found no parking in the minimalist lot out front and the garage... More

My daughter and I stayed here on our visit to Washington DC. The staff were super helpful with all of our questions about the area and it's only 800 m to walk to the subway that takes you into DC. Guapos Restaurant next door is absolutely fantastic!!

I stayed for one night out on the town for the bethesda nightlife and I got a pretty good deal from hotwire. The first room we got smelled like something had died in it (room 317). I'm not one to complain but we couldn't handle the smell so we changed rooms. The second room had the same smell but it... More

I'm giving this a five star because we had a great stay. We love the desk staff who were great from the outset and on a first name basis. They have a great deck by the pool to sit and have a drink. We grabbed a six pack of cans from across the street. We went to the attached Guapo... More

We booked this hotel for the first leg of our American adventure. We booked a room with two double beds and a rollaway bed. When we arrived they had a large group of people who wanted double rooms so we had a free upgrade to two rooms each with a king size bed, one had a rollaway in it. After... More

This cute little hotel is ok but I've stayed in better. The rooms aren't what they look like on the website. Parking isn't great.

We had a 17 day stay. The room was small, but covered all our needs. The staff was very helpful and responded to all our requirements. Our room was reasonably clean and the maid service was attentive and also helpful. The Mexican restaurant next door is very good, both in food and service. Parking may be a problem, but the... More
