“Nice little hotel in Bethesda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Great service and very comfortable. Also the location is very convenient. This hotel is always much cheaper than the Hyatt and the Doubletree, yet it provides free wifi which seems nice and fast. it also has a little swimming pool. Be nice to have a fitness center, especially with all the good restaurants in the area.

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.
