The American Inn of Bethesda, Md., even though it has changed leadership has still the same A-1 quality of service and dedication to its customers. Even the menu of the breakfast has kept
up with the trends of today's diets. Kudos to the owner(s) of the hotel.

Stayed here for 5 nights
friendly and helpful stuff
clean rooms
My daughter gets a free breakfast when visiting us. thanks for that again!!!

Free Maps and informations
unfortunately the pool was closed (we were told this is normal after Labour day) although it was very warm outside..80 °F

Breakfast was filled up even short time before ending..
Milk for the coffee flavoured- love this

like other hotels in the USA all with plastic.. is this really better than to clean glasses or cups??

I would come again
nearby is a metrostation (red line) about 15 Min. to DC

I have been coming here for 20 years and it has always been excellent service & a great place to stay. Adeline always goes out of her way to make my stay enjoyable.

I highly recommend American Inn of Bethesda to anyone who would like a nice place to stay while on vacation.

i was so pleased with the service they offered. room was quite small but nice and clean. i like free shuttle that took us to metro station. i was so happy to stay at the hotel because not only it was closed to the city and DC but also the front desk agent was Adeline, she was very helpful to take care of my stay. i would recommend this hotel to my friends and relatives. thanks.

I have a good stay here and I love the free breakfast and WiFi. I arrived late at night and Zein accommodated my needs. Good service and nice hotel for affordable price. NIH is so close to the hotel and I was able to use their shuttle which they run for free. Awesome! I greatly recommend their hotel...

I don't know if I was put in an older section of the hotel or what but the room I was in was dingy, small, and stuffy. No view whatsoever. The location was inconvenient. There was no taxi service out front of the hotel. The metro is a few blocks a way but to walk to the metro at night is creepy because there are no people around. Streets are dark.

I ended up making my bus but had to hail a cab on the street with my suitcase. I really have nothing positive to say about this hotel. I would skip this one.
