Do NOT stay here!! This place is a dump. BED BUGS!!!!! The staff knew about it but didn’t tell me, as they admitted later. First room I was in didn’t have a working heater. Gross. Power outlets didn’t work, place is run down and a motel, not a hotel. Pest control would have plenty of work here..

The hotel was adequate for DC, although the price for service did not meet expectations. The room was basically clean except for the hair in the bed. The bathroom was fine. The hot breakfast items were cold except for the coffee, self made waffles, and toast. The pool was closed in August. The parking lot is minuscule. I think I counted 18 spots available. So I was offered to park in an open public lot, or a public garage. I opted for the garage. I was led to believe that I could park "anywhere." The next morning, there was a ticket on my windshield because I didn't park in the proper spot. The hotel staff at the front desk who told me I can park anywhere, denied that was an option. This was the same person who directed me to the garage the evening before. She said I could take it up with the county who wrote the ticket. I would not stay here again.

We stayed at the American Inn and used the Metro to get into Washington DC to do some sightseeing. This hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the nearest Metro station. By purchasing a metro pass, you can get anywhere in DC and not have to attempt the traffic, which is a HUGE plus. Not to mention, this hotel has tons of restaurants around it, and a top rated Mexican restaurant in it. You won’t lack for choices here. The rooms themselves are nice and clean. Not a lot of modern touches, but you get super fast WiFi, and Directv service. Breakfast is complimentary and is served from 6:30-9:30 am and has hot and cold choices. Again, everyone can find something they like to start their day. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming. Parking is limited, but also free. If you can’t find a spot on the site, they work with you to accommodate for it. We chose to stay here based on recommendations from friends. The rates are less than finding a room in DC and the free parking and breakfast was a bonus. Let’s face it, you aren’t going to be hanging out in your room all day, so why pay extra for something. The American Inn was a perfect fit for us, and I would definitely recommend and return here in the future.

Hotel is in a good location but that was the only good part about my stay. Rooms are small but decently clean. My computer would not allow me to join their wifi network as it was viewed as suspicious and open to viruses. Went down to the fitness center and the treadmill did not work. Then went back to my room to take a shower and the handle was broken which produced terrible water pressure. Very few parking spots. Had to park my car in a lot across the street and needed to move it by 9am. At 9am there were still no spots in their lot.

The location is fantastic close to metro and in the heart of Bethesda. I had a meeting in Bethesda and the location worked out great. Parking is also free - a good thing for that area close to DC. Breakfast was also good. The rooms were a tad bit too small but for a single traveler it didn't bother me much.
