Great hotel, attentive staff, clean comfortable rooms and a very grateful price. Free breakfast, free shuttle and parking is what sold me on booking with the hotel. Better than all that was the hotel staff as a whole. Professional, knowledgeable and personable. Would stay here again.

I have stayed in budget locations before, but this was the smallest room I have ever seen. First off, there is NO PARKING here. They have a tiny lot in front and a miniature covered "garage" with about 7 more spots. We traveled on the weekend so there was a public lot that was free, across the street behind a... More

I loved it. I stayed for one night, checked in very late and checked out later than 12noon as I overslept (the staff very kindly let me sleep in and let me leave later than 12noon). The room was very restful and very, very comfortable. The bed was a bit too soft, though, and the pillows not firm at all... More

Our first room was through these back entrance stairs and our bathroom wasn't cleaned. When we requested another room we were taken to a room that smelled like a dead mouse and the lights didn't work. They told us they were fully booked and took us back to the original dirty room. They never offered to clean anything. We found... More

If we hadn't been desperate for room ( my son had appointments at the nearby national institutes of health) I would never have stayed here. When I stepped into the room first thing I noticed was a severe mildew smell. First thing I did was smell the bedspread and bedsheets to see if that was the culprit, those were actually... More

Staying in Bethesda, Maryland is a very expensive proposition to begin with, however this hotel leaves a lot to be desired. First the hotel advertised a microwave in every room, yet the only one we found we down the hall by the elevators. There was a ring around the bathroom sink, that looked like mold. We could not get our... More

We regret that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. The hotel consists of two wings. Only one wing has microwaves in the guestrooms.

I stayed at the hotel for only a few nights (thank god), but from what I did experience, I can conclude that this was by far one of the worst hotels.

This is the second time I have stayed here for business. The customer service is great. There were a few really rowdy guests and the employees were very helpful. Be prepared to pay for parking, but it is in a secure lot. The price was good and they do offer a decent amount of breakfast items.

We stayed here when we visited Washington DC since Bethesda is connected by Metro to the central DC area. The Hotel is around 15 mins walk from the Bethesda metro station.Their breakfast was great and the rooms are clean.

I booked a room here as part of a so-called Expedia special (only being dubious because I don't know what the average rates are like) for Memorial Day. It was about $70 a night. Got 317, I believe - a quiet room at the end of a hall. This is a mid-rise hotel with about five floors. Very clean. Housekeeping... More
