hotel near Montgomery college

Is there an inexpensive hotel walking distance from Ontgomery College? Also to get there from BMI can you take the metro or is a car needed? Any restaurant suggestions? It's going to be a quick trip later this week. Thank you!!

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier. As for transportation, try plugging in "BWI" and "Montgomery College" and your times of travel, into this website http://www.google.com/transit and it will show you public transportation options.

1) I know that Amtrak trains stop at BWI and then go to Washington Union Station, which is connected to a red-line Metrorail station having subway trains directly to Rockville station every few minutes.

2) Metrobus also has a bus route from BWI to the Greenbelt, MD metrorail station on the green line; and at Greenbelt station you will probably find taxi's waiting right there which could take to you Montg. College, or else at Greenbelt you could ride metro's green line to the red line and eventually Rockville, which would take longer time.

The bus you want is the MTA bus Route #201, which runs every hour direct from the BWI terminal to the Shady Grove Metro station for $5 and takes 75 minutes. The multi-leg options in MM's post will easily be double the cost and time.

Assuming you want the Rockville campus of MC, the Shady Grove Metro station is 1.6 miles from MC--walkable if you're able with minimal rolling luggage, or an $8 taxi ride or $1.70 local bus fare. If you mean the Germantown campus,getting to Shady Grove is still your best option and it's 8 miles away.

If you want MC's Takoma Park campus, you're best starting off with MM's option 1 above (although you'll probably want to take the less-expensive MARC train from BWI to Washington if you're traveling on a weekday) and then take Metro's Red Line to the Takoma station.

The inexpensive hotels nearest MC-Rockville are the ones situated closest to the Shady Grove station. This closed thread should help:

All these locations are well-served by local transit bus. http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/tsvtmpl.asp

All that having been said, renting a car from BWI may not be a bad idea if budget permits. Your options for extracurricular activities (if you have the time to enjoy them after your MC business is done) will be somewhat limited in the area without one. Feel free to PM if you have any other questions.
