I stayed here for close to a month after coming to the USA. The hotel is clean and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The morning breakfast is nice. There is a free Bethesda bus whicc goes to the metro station every ten minutes, which is very convenient. Central DC is about 20 mins by metro. Would certainly recommend this hotel for someone visiting DC or Maryand.

Overall my stay was enjoyable, the staff were all very friendly. The bedroom and fixtures all seemed modern, until you walk into the bathroom. The toilet looked like it came from a public restroom, the counters we dated as well. The continental breakfast was satisfying, the lobby and everything seemed clean. Their workout equipment in the fitness facility could use an upgrade but got the job done. There were plenty of surrounding places to eat and find a local watering hole or two. I would stay here again and recommend it to others

Nice place to stay. Breakfast OK. No charge for parking. It is on Wisconsin Ave. which has many restaurants and stores. Good place to take a walk. Also near the Metro. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of good pillows. Had a quiet room.

Thank you for commenting on our accommodations and amenities. As you discovered, the American Inn is very centrally located in the Bethesda Business District. There is a vast selection and variety of restaurants, bars and attractions within a short distance to the hotel. We are the perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway, business trip in Bethesda or visiting loved ones a NIH medical complex. We hope to see you again very soon!

Nice and clean hotel if you are looking for a place to stay close to DC. Breakfast very basic but filled the gap. Rooms clean with comfortable beds. 20 mins drive to DC. We used the hotel as a overnight stay on our whirlwind road trip from New York to Charlottesville and if ever in The DC area will use the hotel again.
