Great staff, spacious room
Oct 12, 2014 by: Diana W from Charlotte, North Carolina
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! So for the room you definitely need to be an easy going person or pack your patience! Room 116 was huge....large enough to be two rooms but it is at the end of the hallway near the back door where the Guapos traffic comes and goes. Noise dies down around 9:00 and is really quiet at night and into the morning. Nothing too troublesome, just a heads up if you are hellbent on sleeping at 8pm!
Good value, excellent staff but rather cramped hotel

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 the hotel is excellent: a short walk from everything in Bethesda, and also very close to the NIH. Against it, the rooms and the public areas are small, there is just one elevator, and there was sometimes an unpleasant small in the elevator and corridors. All told, for the price and location the hotel is really good value; in addition, the staff give better service than one typically receives in a much more expensive hotel. I'd certainly come back here when my budget was tight, but if I had more to spend, I'd go to one of the larger chains which would offer more space.
Love these guys...

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.
Amazing team at American Inn of Bethesda

The staff at the American Inn in Bethesda were absolutely the best. From check in to departure I was treated with incredible professionalism and friendliness. Special call out to Adeline Yosephine, the Guest Services Manager. Adeline and her team helped me in so many ways.
Average Price, Average Hotel
Sep 23, 2014 by: Spurpur from Toronto, Canada
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 is a little bit on the smaller side and the decor and finishing is a little bit on the older side. However, perfectly acceptable for their price range. The staff seems to be friendly and the included breakfast is not bad either (standard fare: some hot food like eggs and sausages with yogurt and such).
