“Good rate, Great location, Clean, Comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We negotiated a decent rate with this downtown Bethesda hotel. Apparently patients and their families who have appointments at NiH, Walter Reed, Naval Medical get reduced rates at this nearby property. Since most name brand hotels were close to $270 a night, we were thrilled to pay much less at this small property billing itself as Bethesda's jewel.

The location was great, very walkable to Metrorail Bethesda station, 100's of restaurants and shops... And our doctors offices.
Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Parking is a bit of a rip at $15 per night, there is a public garage a block away.

Staff were helpful and friendly. I would stay here again.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Bethesda Court Hotel while I was on a business trip to DC. My training center was just a few blocks away and the location was perfect. I think this place has its ups and downs.
Ups:
Location - great restaurants nearby (I highly recommend Black's Bar & Kitchen right behind the hotel), Metro is just a couple of blocks down.
Staff - very friendly and courteous. The shuttle service is a private car (brand new Chrysler 300) to take you where you need to go within 2 miles. It's first come first serve, but was nice to get to dinner.
Rooms - while small, they're comfortable and well-appointed. The bed was comfy. The air-conditioner was VERY loud though.

Downs:
The hallway was a bit smelly one day, like a rest-stop bathroom. Maybe it was a nasty bathroom, but it was pretty off-putting.
As noted above, the air conditioner was very loud.
The walls are a bit thin - we could hear the TV of the next room.
Rooms are not very spacious, but then again, it's just a place to sleep.
WIFI - it didn't really work on the 3rd floor, so if that's important to you ask for a lower room.

Overall - would I stay there again? Mmm, maybe. If I needed to save a few bucks, yes. If I could afford to do more, one of the higher priced ones in the area might end up feeling worth it.

Room Tip: Lower floors so you can get wifi.

The Bethesda Court Hotel is a cute hotel tucked away on Wisconsin Ave. We booked a room block for our out of town guests for our wedding in September. The group rates for rooms are very reasonably priced for the location – right in the heart of downtown Bethesda and just blocks from the Bethesda Metro station.

The courtyard is a quiet, relaxing, and wonderful place to entertain guests. We held a brunch in the courtyard the day after the wedding for our out of town guests and it was a big hit.

The staff are friendly and very accommodating. We would highly recommend the Bethesda Court Hotel for anyone looking to book a group rate for reasonable prices in downtown Bethesda.

Bethesda Court Hotel is a small, clean, customer service focused hotel. They offer free WiFi, bottled water, chocolates on check-in, and a local shuttle service. It is well situated, the DC Metro and a thriving restaurant district are within walking distance. I attended a conference held 3 blocks down the street at a megahotel but chose to stay here--I paid a lot less for my room and felt well cared for by the staff. Would definitely stay here again if I came to Bethesda/D.C. area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard! Be aware you're in the city, traffic and trash truc...

The hotel was perfectly located and the room was clean and comfortable. The staff exceptionable - friendly, helpful and courteous. The neighbor restaurants were first rate. The nearby Metro station was convenient getting to the DC locations.

My husband and I stayed here on a weekend trip to DC by using a Groupon. Don't let the outside fool you, it's much nicer on the inside. Our bed was very comfortable and our room was clean. It was nothing special but we were completely satisfied and we're not high-maintenance. The breakfast isn't anything special either (cereal, hard boiled eggs, bagels, fruit, yogurt, etc.) but it did the job! On our last day, we wanted to explore DC some more and the hotel staff allowed us to keep our car parked at the hotel even after we had checked out. That was a huge help! The hotel is in a great location near a metro station that is only about 5 stops from the mall and museums. The hotel isn't in DC but it's probably as close as you can get without having to pay the price. Would we return? Absolutely.

Bethesda Court is an old fashioned (50 years old) 3 story hotel with 75 rooms right in the middle of Bethesda about an easy 2/10 mile walk south to the Metro stop. There is alot to like about this place--we had a Groupon coupon to stay two nights, Friday and Saturday which nornally would be about $200 a night plus $15 a night for parking. The Groupon was $189, and included free parking, chocolates and free bottled water. A good deal for the DC area.

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews we requested and got a room overlooking the beautiful garden courtyard, away from noisy Wisconsin Ave. The hotel let us check in 2 hours early at 1 PM. There is a small evelator for the 3 floors. Our room had a large comfortable king size bed, flat screen TV, microwave, fridge and coffee maker, a safe and free wifi. There was a desk and an easy chair.

The lobby area has 2 computers for use, two sitting areas, with 6 comfortable chairs and a sofa. The hotel provides a continental breakfast and the breakfast room is right off the lobby. That was the worst part about our stay--the breakfast room has only 5 small tables and getting to the food items was very difficult at times because of the tight space. Some people were eating their breakfast in the lobby and if the weather was nice you could eat in the courtyard. We found it was easier to take the food in a tray up to our 2nd floor room. The breakfast was adequate--coffee/tea, packaged cold cereals, packaged juice, yogurt, bagels and muffins, fruit and hard boiled eggs. Nothing hot, but what they had was tasty.

The staff was very pleasant and helpful and we especially appreciated the early registration. Overall we enjoyed out stay at the Bethesda Court and the Groupon made the cost somewhat reasonable and fit our budget.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the courtyard away from Wisconsin Ave.
