“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I have stayed here a few times when visiting family in the area. The grounds are very large as there are multiple buildings in addition to the hotel. There are usually events going on when I've stayed, but I've never had much of an issue with noise level or parking. Rooms are not huge, but they were adequate for our purposes as we were only staying for one night. Always seems pretty clean and we've never had an issue when staying here. The location is in a suburb but easily accessible to the beltway if you went to go to DC or VA. The Montgomery Mall is also not far away if you're looking for shopping or restaurants.

Room Tip: If you're sensitive to noise, check if there's an event going on at the hotel and ask for a...

I had an early morning meeting in Potomac and decided to stay at the Bolger to conserve on sleep. It's a no frills but very friendly hotel, conveniently located in Potomac, Maryland. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the price is extremely reasonable. Nothing is opulent, but all of it is comfortable. It's a great option for the location and price.

The hotel is conveniently located near DC and Bethesda yet gives the feel of being out in the country. Staff makes guests feel as if they are their only concern, something too many hotels forget. Single rooms are small but well equipted with all the amenities. Food is exceptional, setting relaxed, Two Thumbs Up!

Stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights for a work conference. Single rooms are very small but clean and comfortable. Campus style environment with meeting rooms in one building, meals in another, and guest rooms in a third. Well suited for a large conference but just be prepared for doing some walking. Great food choices at meals and breaks. Options included vegetarian items that were tasty and creative. Friendly and helpful staff.

The location of this facility is amazing but the rooms are way too small for one adult person. The ceiling fan didn't work along with the air vent being closest to the door and not the bed. Hot, humid night at this hotel.

Had a wonderful experience here at the Bolger Center. stayed here overnight to attended a wedding.The buffet at the Osgood Restaurant was spectacular and the late night pizza order from Pony Express was good!!! Because of the little wait for the pizza at Pony express the bartender had the pizza delivered to the room, so I didn't have to wait long. This is a wonderful wedding location and weekend get away. From check in to check out I was very pleased with the level of hospitality from everyone. I will be visiting again soon! :)
