Excellent customer service by Adeline who is the front desk supervisor. My room was very cold due to the sudden change in weather. I talked to Adeline and mentioned the room heater was not working. She immediately provided a portable heater which made my stay comfortable. I am extremely satisfied with her response. She is courteous and professional. Thank you... More

We appreciate you taking the time to express your concerns regarding your last stay at the American Inn. I sincerely understand your frustrations with the air conditioning in the room as we experienced an unexpected April heat wave over the weekend you were here. Only a few days prior to your arrival we had cold conditions, with temperatures below 40... More

I spent 10 days at this nice hotel with all comfort I could have. The main reasons for this comment were, undoubtely, the courtesy of all staff the work at that hotel, the breakfast with different juices, fruits, breads, pancakes with jelly, butter, cream cheese, coffe, milk. So good for american standards. Defnitely, the wi fi worked really fine, there... More

My stay in this hotel would never be great without the very flexible front desk agent Alinea. My room smells smoke and she is the only one working at that time in the hotel. I dont know why they have that such employee scheduling one person at night but Alinea help me with my room and make it smells better.... More

Walking into the hotel was nothing like the pictures. The furniture looked old and there was an odor emanating from, idk, somewhere. We walked into the elevator and pushed the button several times before it decided to light up. When we got to our floor, the first thing I noticed was a vent oozing some moldy looking substance.

Had a business trip in SIlverSpring found bethesda Inn as one of the nearest and accessible place along Bethesda. With great people like Sarah Ocampo and Ilenea in the frontdesk that made our stay more comfortable. They are helpful and approchable in any way they can.

As an alternative to staying in Washington D.C. this hotel was nice, clean, and cheaper (including all the metro fee's). However, we got a deal on this hotel that made it much more agreeable. Although the room was small it was very clean and nice. The bed wasn't super comfortable, but I have slept on worse. The best part was... More

My husband and I had a great stay at this quaint, quiet hotel! The front desk staff, especially Adeline, was really friendly and helpful and you get a comfy bed, breakfast and there is a restaurant attached. If you are a foodie, Brasserie Monte Carlo on Norfolk is a GREAT restaurant to check try. The Onion tart is divine!

We were fortunate to get a "deal" on this hotel which made it very affordable. It was wonderful and probably worth even the published prices. The best part was the private motor launch which departed every half hour from the hotel's own mooring and which took us to a very central point by Bridge of Sighs very close to St... More

Thank you for taking the time to respond on Trip Advisor. However, I believe you may have the American Inn of Bethesda confused with another hotel. We are not near a beach or boat launch. But, our pool is very nice and available for guest use during the summer months. Thanks again! More

We have had a lot of experience with hotels in the DC area due to family living there and this was a good price, clean, included a so-so breakfast. I would recommend if you were just staying overnight as we were, but have stayed at much better hotels in the area. Prices fluctuate so we have to try many different... More
