“GREAT location and amenities!”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

This hotel is just outside the DC area and an easy trip on the Metro into the city. The front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful, served daily from 6:30-9:30. The pool was clean, although pretty cool, but with a lifeguard on duty from 2-8 every day. Our room was clean and comfortable. Parking is free but limited. We were fortunate enough to get a spot and didn't have to move the car for the 4 days we were there. We were within walking distance to many great restaurants and Bethesda is a VERY clean and friendly town. If you go out the BACK door of the hotel and walk up about a half block, there is a FREE bus you can take called the Bethesda Circulator that will take you right to the closest Metro station, instead of walking the 6 blocks to get there. That would be very helpful if you're traveling with small children as we were.

Room Tip: This hotel had everything we were looking for. It has free parking, free breakfast & a great loc...

Room was pretty small, but worked fine for my husband, daughter and I. Could have used more paper products. Had to ask Front Desk for another box of tissues and a roll of toilet paper. Not too farto walk to the Metro. We would stay again when in Bethesda, MD.

Room Tip: Enjoyed our stay!

Clean, but rather small room. Good location, walking distance from metro. Staff behind desk was friendly and helpfull. Maps of Washington DC are available at the desk. Breakfast was excellent. Parking at hotel is free, but spaces are very, very limited. We could park at the public parking across the street. It's free in the weekends. Considered other hotels in the Washington area, this hotel had a good price.

I spent two nights at the American Inn while I was in town for a tennis tournament. This hotel is a typical 2-star hotel. The room is okay for one person, but might be a little cramped for more than 2 people. The furniture was newer, but the carpet shows some age. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was quiet. The wireless internet was fast and connection was easy.
The morning breakfast included coffee, cereal, waffles, bagels and muffins, hard-boiled eggs, and cereal. It was served in the little restaurant that's attached to the hotel.
The parking is limited to about 20 spaces, and I had to park at the public lot that's just 1/2 block away. The night hotel representative gave me a map and carefully explained how to drive to the lot. He told me to park in the handicapped spot at the hotel long enough to unload my luggage and take it to my room.
The people at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful in the evening and the morning. They had complimentary copies of the newspaper.
I booked the American Inn using Expedia, and I was happy with the location, service, and room.

My mom and I have been staying at The American Inn for 12 1/2 years. The hotel has undergone some beautiful renovations.
The beds are comfy, shower hot, internet fast and tons of tv channels. The breakfast included is a nice touch. The hotel is within walking distance of the metro and tons of great restaurants.
The management and staff are very helpful and always remember us.

Great place to stay close to NIH and Naval Hospital. Hotel rooms are quiet. Close to metro to go into DC. Staff are very helpful. The only things I wish they had is a fitness center and a little more choices on breakfast. Wish you could get scrambled eggs or an egg burrito in the morning. Nice to have a great Mexican restuarant right next door. Hotel is within walking distance to other restaurants in Bethesda.

You'll be hard pressed to find a place in the $200-range in Bethesda, so I found this to be a good value for the money. You can see the wear-and-tear on the bones of the place but they have obviously made updates to furniture, bedding, paint, wallpaper, etc. It's clean and the staff was always pleasant. Free parking & continental breakfast. Close to downtown area.
