We stayed here a few nights, I do agree with the reviews of it needing a bit of updating, however I have been in other big name hotels that have in worse conditions. The hotel was clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. The free breakfast is the same as anywhere that offers a cold buffet, coffee, cereal, bagels,...

Bethesda Court is a small, clean, and fabulously located lodge. There is an adequate breakfast offered, although nearby there are wonderful restaurants. This is not a luxury hotel but it certainly does the job nicely: great location in Bethesda, safe, self-parking lot, clean room, and a comfortable bed. I have been staying at the Bethesda Court once or twice a...

Horrible place, outdated interior with worn out furniture, breakfast is included, but the breakfast room is tiny so you may not even find a sit, the breakfast menu is limited to bagels, boiled eggs and English muffins. The price though was higher then in nearby chain hotels like Marriott, Double Tree or Hyatt. They are on NIH hotel list, so...

All the staff were lovely. We loved the courtyard-- a hidden gem of a place, where we breakfasted each day. The breakfast itself is pretty basic, but sufficient - we all found something we liked (parents w/3 kids, aged 12-22). There are dozens of interesting and varied restaurant options within walking distance, and the nearby Metro stop is a plus....

This hotel is in Wisconsin Ave, which is the major street that goes to NIH. Many of the people that stay in the hotels in the area are either doing business with NIH or are patients. For those, this is a convenient hotel because it is close to the Bethesda metro station and also has its own parking ($15/day). If...

This elderly hotel is being remodeled--slowly. So rooms and some equipment are uneven. On the plus side--very friendly and helpful staff, good value, location, easy parking (for a $15/night fee). On the downside--all rooms are small--bathrooms even smaller, TV service is limited and local channels awful, AC is noisy, breakfast is below Days Inn quality. But it will get better,...

We loved the location, and the courtyard view from our room. Staff is very friendly and always willing to accommodate, just need to ask. The area is safe and parking price is reasonable ($15/night). My Husband and I recommend this hotel.
