“More like home than hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

My main reason to stay here was location. It's very close to a family member who didn't have room for us to stay with them. We were there 4 nights we really enjoyed having a front porch to sit on. Or a patio to relax on. We were in the building that didn't have the office in it.
One of the things that bothered me was that there wasn't coffee available to us in the mornings until later. In our building there was a station with INSTANT coffee. Ugh. No other options. In the main building it's not made available until 7am weekdays, and 8am weekends. When you have tours to get to, it makes it impossible to have coffee before you leave. And breakfast is very continental. Cereal and bagels basically. Breakfast has the same hours as coffee does. There are several restaurants close by. If you want a grocery store for anything there is a Safeway pretty much right behind the Inn.

Room Tip: Room 15 in on the first floor (no stairs), except front porch. And has a wall between the beds. I wa...

This B&B is actually three row houses in the Adams-Morgan Section of DC. It is modest in character with a continental breakfast, available in both the dining room and the kitchen of one of the houses. It is not fancy but always clean and well cared for. Most rooms have a private bath. We like the congeniality of the other guests, many times small groups of young adults from other countries. We've also met some retired "university types". The conversation at breakfast is always about more than just the weather. The only drawback to staying here is that there is no elevator. However the staff is more than willing to schlep luggage.
Our favorite part of the Inn is the great staff, always going beyond the norm to provide wonderful, friendly service. We've stayed here half a dozen times and definitely will be back. We consider Adam's Inn to be our home away from home when visiting family in the DC area.

When we arrived, the was a nice young girl waiting at the front desk and told us everything in a very polite way. Our room was in the second building, which was okay since it really just right next to the first one. There is a cute little area with sofas and a TV and also a little kitchen, where you can place things in the fridge. There is always coffee and tea available and oatmeal.
I was travelling with my mom and we had a really small room with a quite weird window (broken blinds, but curtains were fine) and a queen bed. For my taste, the bed was too small, but the room was clean and looked nice. I never had to wait "in line" for the shared bathroom and it was always very clean and there were fresh towels.
Breakfast is from 7:30 -10:00, i think it starts a bit late but it really good, they offer toast, bagels, peanut butter, jam, cream cheese, fruit, juices, tea, coffee, oatmeal and sweet bread. You would always meet nice other travellers in the breakfast room and have a nice chat (at least we met only nice people).
Staff was always friendly.
I would recommend this Inn for parties of two or three and vintage lovers haha :-)

Steven, I believe his name was, greeted me and was friendly and very helpful, particularly in navigating the neighborhood so I could find a restaurant and locate transportation the next day. The room I was in was simple and clean. My stay was short so I can't comment in any more depth than that, but was pleased with the Inn and would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in the lively Adams Morgan area.

This hotel is located in a nice neighbourhood, has very courteous staff and had some fantastic communal areas (e.g. lounge, computer room, laundry room, kitchen, etc). Unfortunately despite these good points the hotel disappointed in other far more important and fundamental areas - the beds were awful (getting a good nights sleep was impossible), there was little or no control of the room temperature, the breakfasts were disappointing and there was no TV in the bedroom which meant many people had to share the one TV. Given the most important aim of any hotel should be to provide their customers with the means to enjoy a good nights sleep both my partner, Hannah, and I felt this hotel was a significant disappointment. We will certainly not be returning here.

The Adam's Inn is a great place to stay in Adams Morgan. They were accommodating and friendly. We booked the carriage house, it was clean, quiet (super quiet) and suited our needs for the weekend. The wifi worked perfectly. Being in a separate building was perfect for us as we were in and out frequently. Traveling with a toddler can be tough, the owner offered us a stroller and the cleaning staff was on point. The Adam's Inn is one of the only B&B's in the area that would accept toddlers. This place is not perfect; some of the renovations are not completed, and some of the staff is apathetic. All in all though I would totally return. Access to Rock Creek Park is great. As a cyclist this place is situated perfectly to check out the cycling trails in the area, and would make a great start to a C&O canal trip. As a parent close proximity to the zoo was sweet. You can't beat the places to eat in the area. Reserve your parking early if you are driving in, parking in the area sucks, having a garage to park in was priceless. The staff let me store my bicycle before check in, and after check out. Ohh yea as many peppermint patties as you can eat, nutella every morning at breakfast, that's something you can't complain about. I can't wait to come back to DC and when I do I will be staying at the Adam's Inn again.

Room Tip: I loved the carriage house. Super quiet and great if you like to come and go.

We really enjoyed our stay at Adam's Inn. First of all, it is in a great location--close to the Zoo as well as lots of shops and good restaurants. It's also very easy to access other parts of the city using the "Circulator" or metro. It was a perfect home base from which to explore DC.

We also found the employees at the Inn to be really friendly and helpful. Even before we arrived, we needed to reschedule our reservation and they were really accommodating.

Our only complaint would be that the mattress was pretty old and uncomfortable. I wouldn't have wanted to sleep on it for more than a couple of nights. Breakfast was also fairly basic, but that was fine with us. All we need is coffee, and the coffee was decent!

Overall, we'd definitely recommend Adam's Inn to anyone looking for a decent place to stay in this neighborhood!
