“Enjoyed our stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

Charming small hotel close to Washington D.C. It is in a great neighborhood and there is an excellent Mexican restaurant right next door. The breakfast was great, my daughter enjoyed the pool and the rooms were clean. Only problem is that parking is somewhat limited. Would definitely come here again!

Conveniently located on Wisconsin Ave. near to downtown Bethesda (10 min walk). Small facility, but extraordinarily clean and well kept. Breakfast okay, gets you started, nothing to write home about. Staff cordial. Parking free but severely limited. Price, compared with others in downtown area, right on.

The hotel is in a good location, close enough to a range of places. The room was in a quiet place, and the bed was comfortable, so I slept well. The bathroom was large, clean and well-equipped. I was disappointed in a few things: the radio alarm clock was difficult to figure out; also, it was very dirty and sticky. The room had a somewhat musty odor. The housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful; however, the front desk staff were generally not actually at the front desk and had to be called out from a back room. Information isn't readily forthcoming...you are told there is a breakfast, but not where it is, nor are there instructions as to how to change the room temperature. The breakfast was great, good selection.
There is more that can be done to improve the guest experience without spending a lot of (or even any) money. I wouldn't return unless there wasn't a room available in another place.

This hotel is just outside the DC area and an easy trip on the Metro into the city. The front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful, served daily from 6:30-9:30. The pool was clean, although pretty cool, but with a lifeguard on duty from 2-8 every day. Our room was clean and comfortable. Parking is free but limited. We were fortunate enough to get a spot and didn't have to move the car for the 4 days we were there. We were within walking distance to many great restaurants and Bethesda is a VERY clean and friendly town. If you go out the BACK door of the hotel and walk up about a half block, there is a FREE bus you can take called the Bethesda Circulator that will take you right to the closest Metro station, instead of walking the 6 blocks to get there. That would be very helpful if you're traveling with small children as we were.

Room Tip: This hotel had everything we were looking for. It has free parking, free breakfast & a great loc...

Room was pretty small, but worked fine for my husband, daughter and I. Could have used more paper products. Had to ask Front Desk for another box of tissues and a roll of toilet paper. Not too farto walk to the Metro. We would stay again when in Bethesda, MD.

Room Tip: Enjoyed our stay!

Clean, but rather small room. Good location, walking distance from metro. Staff behind desk was friendly and helpfull. Maps of Washington DC are available at the desk. Breakfast was excellent. Parking at hotel is free, but spaces are very, very limited. We could park at the public parking across the street. It's free in the weekends. Considered other hotels in the Washington area, this hotel had a good price.
