I recently stayed at the American Inn Bethesda, this was my 5th visit there. I have noticed each time I stay it has improved with each visit. The location is great, close to NIH and Walter Reed Hospitals and walking distance to the Metro (although they have a very convenient shuttle service ) .Close to many restaurants and now a...

My friend and I came to Bethesda for a show. She needs a wheelchair for mobility. The front desk clerk was very cold. Our room was in the same corridor as someone else noted just outside the restaurant. The door sill was too high to easily get the wheelchair over and the door would not stay open. The hall and...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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. However, upon request, we can provide a microwave to your room as needed. In regards to your billing concerns, we are not able nor do we have access to the full rate details that...

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.
