Close to NIH and the Bethesda Medical Centers. AAA price was the best available in the area when I booked three weeks in advance. Initial problem at check-in – first room had someone already in it, but the staff made a quick effort to locate a different room. Basic two bed room. Small desk space, but there was readily available...

Thank you for your comments. I apologize for the difficulty you experienced at check in. I'm sure it was very frustrating to be checked into an occupied room. I will definitely discuss your experience with our front desk and housekeeping departments to underscore the importance of preventing problems like this from occurring due to safety, security and service reasons. I'm...

After being disappointed that my wife didn't book us at the DoubleTree, I was repeatedly surprised to find the American Inn of Bethesda to be a welcoming environment. The staff was gracious and accomodating. For an older hotel, the interior was fresh and well appointed throughout, including the unexpected places like the public restrooms and stairwell. Every appliance/fixture, electrical and...

Located among loads of amenities in downtown Bethesda, with easy access to Metro, NIH, Walter Reed. Parking on site is sparse, but public parking is only a block away & free on weekends. The Inn offers limited shuttle service on weekdays, but a free bus conveniently circulates through the downtown area (diagonally across from the Inn). Complimentary breakfast & outdoor...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Older hotel but was pretty clean. Nice breakfast area. We went there for a family reunion and the staff was very accommodating. Easy access to the subway to get down to DC area.

The American Inn is a decent hotel, you get what you pay for. Disappointed by the lack of parking and the location isn't all the great (with exception of the short walk to the metro station, which was broken almost our entire stay). The breakfast was free but very sparse and underwhelming, not the greatest food on the planet. The...

This little inn is not grand or elegant but it is clean, quiet, secure and comfortable. The breakfast is very good and is served in a cozy little nook that gets plenty of light. Parking is a little bit tight but the limited number of spaces are all extremely convenient to the lobby. The outstanding feature is the staff. Sam,...

American Inn is about a half mile south of the NIH, very convenient for folks visiting the hospital there. The physical plant is 3-4 stars, nice basic clean place. The STAFF however, bumps it up to a solid 5 star. These people are incredibly nice and helpful. They understand the drill at NIH and will help you sort it all...

We chose the hotel for its location, which was great for doing what we needed to do. We appreciated being able to park for free and have breakfast on site.
