This hotel is in Wisconsin Ave, which is the major street that goes to NIH. Many of the people that stay in the hotels in the area are either doing business with NIH or are patients. For those, this is a convenient hotel because it is close to the Bethesda metro station and also has its own parking ($15/day). If... More

This elderly hotel is being remodeled--slowly. So rooms and some equipment are uneven. On the plus side--very friendly and helpful staff, good value, location, easy parking (for a $15/night fee). On the downside--all rooms are small--bathrooms even smaller, TV service is limited and local channels awful, AC is noisy, breakfast is below Days Inn quality. But it will get better,... More

We loved the location, and the courtyard view from our room. Staff is very friendly and always willing to accommodate, just need to ask. The area is safe and parking price is reasonable ($15/night). My Husband and I recommend this hotel.

Good Hotel. Love the location. No qualms with the room or service. The bathroom was small and had a shower stall as opposed to the traditional bath tub. The hotel elevator was also small and narrow. Breakfast was serviceable. Parking spaces are limited for the hotel is in the downtown area. There is an additional $15 parking charge and the... More

Stayed in this hotel for a weekend of sight seeing of Washington DC. The hotel is close to the Metro and is within easy driving distance to the attractions in DC. The hotel is located in a quiet area in Bethesda and has nearby places to eat. Breakfast had a good selection and it has a beautiful courtyard to eat... More

In town for NIH study. Clean comfortable room and bed... The essentials! But, the smallest shower I've ever seen Ina cramped bathroom--my wife would have been unhappy with lighting and lack of counter space. I asked for a 6 am wake up call and it never came--glad I set a back up alarm or I would have missed my appointment.... More

The lady at check-in on Mon evening of 25th Jul was lovely. We had a room with 2 double beds, very comfortable. The air con was bit noisy but we were used to that... More

We stayed on Saturday night which is considered very busy. The hotel was packed. The reception person was polite and patient. The rooms are small and the bathroom (shower, toilet) was really tiny. Yet, it served the needs and everything was clean. Breakfast was good, but there was not enough room for everyone inside or in the attached 'garden'. The... More

This motel makes you think you are not in the middle of the city. Our room faced An enclosed courtyard with trees, plants and tables where we ate our breakfast daily.
