“Very Helpful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I stayed here because I had an interview at USUHS on NSA Bethesda and the hotel was very close. When I checked in, I had a pdf that could not be saved on my computer and the manager went out of his way to connect my computer to a printer so I had the plethora of documents I needed for the interview. I couldn't imagine many places going out of their way for something like that.

I chose this hotel because the price was OK and it was within walking distance of the Tripperbus station for bus transport to NYC and the Bethesda Metro Station. The room was small, so there was hardly room to manouevre outside of the large comfortable bed. However, the room had everything I needed. There was WiFi that worked well and an empty fridge which I did not use. In the morning, I could pick up a free newspaper at the reception.

Do not expect much of the free breakfast offered. I could get a bowl of cereal and a hardboiled egg, but overall it was a bit disappointing. Still, it saved me a lot of time and I didn't have to go on my 4 hours bus ride hungry.

I have to echo all the positive commentary about this hotel. Yes, its very nice hotel. you get what you pay for. Excellent classy rooms, excellent service, The breakfasts we had at the Restaurant were excellent, The GM Hussain Ahmed was very attentive and the restaurant server is an exceptional charm, in addition to the friendliness and professionalism of all the hotel staff. I cant wait to come back to Washington and particularly this hotel.

The hallways where dirty, the beakfast was cheap and only bread and pancakes, NOTHING MORE!, the rooms you feel all the noise from the streat, I can barely sleep. and on top of that, NO PARKING available... only few parks and allways full!! You dont even want to come out because you dont know if you'll be able to park!!

DONT COME TO THIS HOTEL... IS NOT WORTH IT!!!

Stayed here after the Derecho and following several days without power (thanks PEPCO). Room was well appointed and clean, and staff was very helpful. Breakfast was good but nothing special - standard free hotel breakfast. Guapo's is one of our favorite restaurants so the proximity is a plus, although our room was literally directly above the bar so we heard the Mexican music through the floor. I would recommend asking for a room not above the bar if possible, but even so the room was nice.

Room Tip: Make sure your room isn't above the Guapo's Bar.

The American Inn of Bethesda is always my organization's first choice for workshops. The conference room with its natural lighting and convenient extra snack and break space works perfectly for our groups. The combination of this excellent space plus reasonable price, fabulous location and wonderful helpful friendly staff can't be beat!
