The DC metro area is notoriously expensive and its hotels are no exception. This place is your solution. Their rates are consistently lower than any other hotel in Bethesda (believe me, I've checked) unless you count airbnb (which I'd kind of recommend). The American Inn has everything you need. The internet is fast, the AC is ice cold, the beds... More

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad that you found our hotel to be a good value. We are actually only 0.5 mile from the Bethesda Metro station or a 10 minute walk. Although, I'm sure on a hot Summer Day in Bethesda, this can seem much longer. I continue to improve our property and I'm sure that you will... More

Has everything you need, bed very comfortable and clean. That's what matters most to me. Not much in the parking . They have a small garage if your vehicle is over six feet high it won't fit. Ours didn't . The queen room is dinky . Looks exactly like the photo but the photo must have been taken with a... More

Staff is awesome. They treat you right and get the job done. I had the opportunity to meet Adeline and Dipshan at the front desk and they were more than helpful with everything. Rooms were great. Offered everything you needed in a safe and sterile environment. Parking was not so great. There were probably at most 20 parking spaces on... More

The staff,location and restaurant was great! Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and reason for visit. Hotel is in the middle of everything, especially Guapos which is attached to the hotel and has great Mexican food! So for the room you definitely need to be an easy going person or pack your patience! Room 116 was huge....large enough to... More

As other commentators have mentioned, the staff at this hotel are incredibly helpful: nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The hotel also had everything that I needed in basic accommodation: a good range of cable channels; wi-fi that worked well; a safe in the room; a window that opened; there was even a shuttle van. Also the location of... More

I am a frequent guest/patient at the NIH (just half a mile away) and the staff at the American Inn go WAY out of their way to make me welcome and comfortable. Front Desk Supervisor Sam is amazing. He remembers me, and finds a way to bring me back. The American Inn has become "my hotel" in the DC area.

The staff at the American Inn in Bethesda were absolutely the best. From check in to departure I was treated with incredible professionalism and friendliness. Special call out to Adeline Yosephine, the Guest Services Manager. Adeline and her team helped me in so many ways.

A relatively cheap hotel in Bethesda. It is close to the NIH/WalterReed but a good 10mins walk to the Metro station. Location wise, it is right on the "edge" of downtown so close to many restaurants. It offers free parking but space is limited. But on weekends, u can park for free in public parking lots around town. The room... More

Close to NIH and the Bethesda Medical Centers. AAA price was the best available in the area when I booked three weeks in advance. Initial problem at check-in – first room had someone already in it, but the staff made a quick effort to locate a different room. Basic two bed room.
