American Inn is a Great Choice
Aug 25, 2014 by: Dennis S from Ringold, GA, United States
I travel with with a Beatles tribute band called The WannaBeatles. We had the pleasure of spending three days at the conveniently located American Inn. It is located in the heart of beautiful Bethesda close to a variety of excellent restaurants as well as Walter Reed Hospital. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Cynthia and Daryl, in particular, were most cooperative and committed to making our stay a memorable experience. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the Washington DC area. DS
great value near NIH and Walter Reed

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, in particular, was exceptionally gracious and helpful. I strongly recommend this property as a good value very close to the NIH and Walter Reed Medical Center.
great place, great people, great location

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 out. We lost a tremendously emotionally valuable object there when we were leaving, and the staff found it, secured it, and got it back to us ( BIG SHOUTOUT to ADELINE ! ! ! Thanks a bunch ! ! ! ). Really first rate people. The hotel is a 10 min walk South of the Medical Center metro stop on the Red LIne (no problem getting to eg Union Station near the Capitol). Convenience store across the street, 5 min walk to many good restos that do takeaway. Solid, solid place. We unreservedly recommend American Inn and would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Best Experience Ever

My family had our family reunion at the hotel and the overall experience was wonderful. The staff was excellent from the time we checked in till we checked out. The parking garage was being worked on so they took care of all of our parking fees during the weekend. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was wonderful, friendly. The rooms were clean and spacious. I highly recommend the American Inn of Bethesda. Thank you Cynthia, Darrell, Dipshan and everyone else for helping us have a successful reunion... Gina

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. Our room was small but had everything we needed and was clean. What made the stay memorable, however, was the friendly, helpful service that Sam and Dipshan, managers, provided. They were outstanding!
