I got a great price on my room -- heck, the rental car was more expensive -- and was fearing a fleabag place. Not so! This is a clean, well-kept, somewhat cushy hotel, with bigger rooms than you can get for much more money in downtown DC. The hotel is built in a funny shape so that every room has a corner window -- lots of light and a good view. The staff are wonderfully courteous. The only thing I would say about the room I had was that the bathroom was a little small and cramped.
Location is GREAT. I had no idea that Bethesda had so many good restaurants, but it's a gourmet-ethnic paradise and everything is walking distance from the hotel. Also, the Tastee Diner a few blocks away is not to be missed for breakfast -- the hotel does have Starbucks in the lobby as well as a restaurant, but eating in the hotel seemed silly with so much else around. It is a short walk to the Metro, which is easy access to all the sights in Washington.
