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! So for the room you definitely need to be an easy going person or pack your patience! Room 116 was huge....large enough to...

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.

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.

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.

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.

Every appliance/fixture, electrical and...
