I received great service from the minute I walked in. The staff was very courteous (kudos to Joyce - i think that was the name of the girl at the front desk) and accommodating. The room was very clean and the bed was EXTREMELY comfortable! Location was convenient, walking distance to metro and restaurants. Very satisfied, will definitely stay there again when I'm back in the area.

I found American Inn of Bethesda hotel value for money and even if stayed for really long time service and quality of room was as good as first day. Their continental breakfast is very good and its location is definitely plus

The fact that this hotel is a bit cheaper than others in the immediate area does not compensate for the dramatic step down in quality. The lobby and hallways are small, dark and wornout. Carpets are darkly soiled. No fresh air anywhere in the place. Very stale. Rooms are extremely small. So small, one has to put a suitcase on the bed to open it. Walls are very thin, you can hear your neighbor's every action. Linens and bathroom seemed clean and bed was firm or this would have been the lowest rating. For $25 bucks more you can do much, much better. Try the Sheraton Four Corners or even the Holiday Inn for a better deal.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

This hotel doesn't offer many thrills but is within a ten minute walk from Bethesda Row. I stayed here 4 nights and was quite thrilled that they offerred free overnight parking (when available) and free breakfast. They also have a small pool on site and the staff - from the breakfast room to the front desk to the parking attendent - were all quite nice. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel which was a great place to dine as well.

Hi, Well this is not a review since I just booked this hotel for August. I just have a quick question, the hotel looks perfect for us but can someone tell me how the pool is? While my youngest daughter will be attending the Youth Leader Conference, my oldest daughter and I will be sight seeing and relaxing, and we love to relax around a pool. I can't find any pictures of it, can someone give me a quick review of their pool? Thanks!!

Good Aftenoon,
Our hotel pool is open every day (depending on the weather) from Memorial Day Saturday to Labor day. The pool has a sun deck, plenty of chairs and a life guard on duty at all times. Photos of the pool will be on the website this summer. If you have any other questions or need additional information, please email me at americaninngm@baywoodhotels.com. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you soon!!
