The DC metro area is notoriously expensive and its hotels are no exception. This place is your solution. Their rates are consistently lower than any other hotel in Bethesda (believe me, I've checked) unless you count airbnb (which I'd kind of recommend). The American Inn has everything you need. The internet is fast, the AC is ice cold, the beds...

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad that you found our hotel to be a good value. We are actually only 0.5 mile from the Bethesda Metro station or a 10 minute walk. Although, I'm sure on a hot Summer Day in Bethesda, this can seem much longer. I continue to improve our property and I'm sure that you will...

Has everything you need, bed very comfortable and clean. That's what matters most to me. Not much in the parking . They have a small garage if your vehicle is over six feet high it won't fit. Ours didn't . The queen room is dinky . Looks exactly like the photo but the photo must have been taken with a...

Staff is awesome. They treat you right and get the job done. I had the opportunity to meet Adeline and Dipshan at the front desk and they were more than helpful with everything. Rooms were great. Offered everything you needed in a safe and sterile environment. Parking was not so great. There were probably at most 20 parking spaces on...

The staff,location and restaurant was great! Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and reason for visit. Hotel is in the middle of everything, especially Guapos which is attached to the hotel and has great Mexican food!

As other commentators have mentioned, the staff at this hotel are incredibly helpful: nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The hotel also had everything that I needed in basic accommodation: a good range of cable channels; wi-fi that worked well; a safe in the room; a window that opened; there was even a shuttle van. Also the location of...

I am a frequent guest/patient at the NIH (just half a mile away) and the staff at the American Inn go WAY out of their way to make me welcome and comfortable. Front Desk Supervisor Sam is amazing. He remembers me, and finds a way to bring me back. The American Inn has become "my hotel" in the DC area.

A relatively cheap hotel in Bethesda. It is close to the NIH/WalterReed but a good 10mins walk to the Metro station. Location wise, it is right on the "edge" of downtown so close to many restaurants. It offers free parking but space is limited. But on weekends, u can park for free in public parking lots around town. The room...

Close to NIH and the Bethesda Medical Centers. AAA price was the best available in the area when I booked three weeks in advance.
