Exceeded expectations

I wanted a quiet room conveniently placed for my meeting in a hotel close to the Bethesda metro stop, at a more reasonable price than that for the aforementioned hotel. The American Inn supplied exactly that - I got a nice quiet room within easy walking distance for a good price. There is also a reasonable Chinese takeway two doors up the street, a pharmacy across the road and a barbers a few blocks away. All in all, this place makes a good operations base.

A reasonable choice

A small Bethesda hotel close to NIH. The room was small and without any view to mention but impeccably tidy, and the service was good. The breakfast is complimentary and satisfactory as such (you would not be expecting any gourmet provision). The personnel were helpful, e.g. when the printer at the lobby was not functioning, they sorted out the problem. The Wi-Fi was relatively fast and reliable. I did not experience any disturbing noises at night or anything of the kind, so all in all, I felt I got good value for the money for the 4 nights I spent there.
