“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

The manager, Dan, and his front desk staff always go above and beyond to make my stays comfortable. It's not home, but the staff do their best to provide the comforts of home, from the bottles of water to the feather pillows. And the waffles at breakfast are always a treat. Great location for getting to NIH. I've stayed here many times in the past and will continue to do so.

This is the best alternative accommodation for a tourist. Me and my wife visited DC and decided to go out the city a little further and discover the town Bethesda and we stayed in this lovely hotel. The staff are really friendly ( room service and front desk ) . Both Arianne and Zain are very helpful and warm. I was a bit confused with the locality and they just hit the information I needed, in a professional manner. Bethesda is a nice community and I'm glad we decided to stay in this hotel. it's not as pricy and congested.

Small, but clean and comfortable, this hotel is in a walkable neighborhood with some great little shops and restaurants, and was centrally located to my two destinations on the trip.I appreciated the little refrigerator and bottles of water, nice extras for people who are away from home. If you just need a place to sleep, get clean and have coffee and a bite to eat before starting your day, this will do the trick. Pocket the money you save and treat yourself to dinner!

This visit to American Inn was for one night, we usually stay longer about 3-5 days. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Perfect location for our visits to NIH, easily walkable. Easy access to Metro in Bethesda or Medical Center for a leisurely visit into D.C. Front Desk staff friendly and knowledgeable. If you drive and space is available parking is free...other area hotels charge for parking. In the morning they offer a continental breakfast and some in our party look forward to the waffles.We enjoy coming back to the hotel in the afternoon and in the lobby they have coffee, tea, and cookies. Sometimes it's the little things that mean the most. The rooms have refridgerators, coffee makers, and now, bottles of water. Seems management is always thinking of the guests and how to make their stay more comfortable and relaxing. There is a Mexican restaurant attached to the property so no need to go out to eat. We recommend American Inn to those who ask about a hotel or those going to visit the area. It is a bit pricely but then again everything/place in that area is, you do get the most out of your money staying at the American Inn of Bethesda, Maryland.

I stayed at the American Inn for two nights during the Presidential Inauguration. After spending one night in a much more expensive upscale property I felt I got "more bang for my buck" at this one. The staff was friendly, helpful and accomodating, they truly seemed to value your business. A problem with the bill was adjusted immediately. Adeline and the property manager deserve high marks for their professionalism and excellent customer service. I would definelty stay at this property again.

We stayed in the hotel during the inauguration week. i really like the freebies that were given to us. it was so helpful most esp the inauguration map. Adeline of the morning shift, and the two Asian girls was very informative of the places. Arianne helped us show the directions and Zein helped us look for the perfect place to eat and shop.

Dan the GM is very friendly and very approachable. to sum it all, American Inn is a best hotel to recommend for those people who wanted to visit the DC area.

Room Tip: 5th floor away from the elevator
