Score from 104 reviews Very good
Location: Cheapest in the area YET the closest to the NIH Staff is courteuos and friendly
It is what it is. You can hear other guests in their room if they're being loud - maybe I just got a loud one.
The room was clean and beds comfortable. Convenient for us traveling to the surgery center. Very friendly staff took care of us well.
Little tight parking spaces, Wifi was hit or miss, air conditioner only blew in the bathroom. They painted a room on our floor the one day and didn't open a window in that room stinking up the entire hallway but when we told them about the smell they did open a window to allow fresh air in.
clean and adequately spaced bathroom Flat screen tv free internet access friendly and timely service
Small rooms limited on-site parking
Bethesda is convenient to National cathedral(purpose of our visit) and the price was right.
Towels had holes in them; bedspread stuffing was bunched in one spot;limited t.v. channels; photo on booking.com is very deceiving-it's an old motor inn!; and parking is very tight .
Parking is limited. Breakfast is limited. The staff at breakfast is not very friendly.
good value for money
Comfortable clean rooms, location is perfect for popping into DC. Decent friendly staff
no negatives really!
shuttle bus to metro but also a nice 15 minute walk. area has tons of restaurants.
Near to NIH. Staff friendly. Maki Maki Sushi restaurant across the road.
Disposable plates, cups, knives, spoons, etc at breakfast. Some areas of the premises are a little 'tired'. Wifi was not protected.
The court yard.
Lack of pool.
Location, easy walking distance to downtown Bethesda and DC metro is the best this hotel has to offer.
Overpriced and disappointing overall. Old furniture and carpets; photos showed a little kitchenette corner in the room with a sink, counter space and a little cabinet. Don't know what the photo was showing but it was not what our room looked like; all we had was a small fridge and they brought in a small microwave after we asked about the different room we thought we were booking; elevator didn't wok half of the time we were there; rusty hinges in the bathroom, no exhaust fan; terrible breakfast - watery OJ and coffee, thin waffle mix; pool was closed most of the time we stayed as one of the windows overlooking the pool got broken (why?) soon after we entered our room and glass got into the pool; very tight and few parking spaces@$15 per night. Will not return.
Elevator was not working for two days in a row. We had a room at the 5th floor, no one offer to help us with the luggage when we had to leave. They have limited parking. If you don't find a spot, you have to park at the public parking lot. They offer to pay from 7 am to 10 am only. This is not they way they advertise on the web. Very annoying Swimming pool was out of order Breakfast is very limited (is what do you expect for a much cheaper hotel). The orange juice... well it was water with some orange colour. Absolutely overpriced for what we got.
Close to NIH and Bethesda downtown Staffs are friendly and courteous Less expensive
Made my reservation through booking and got a confirmation email only to find out that our room was never available. This is the second time this has happened.
It wasn't too far from the metro, about a six block walk.
The rooms were very small. Not a lot of parking right by the hotel.
This hotel is very close to the nih. We actually walked to the nih from the hotel. Parking at the hotel was very resonable. The building is older but the room was clean.
Skip the breakfast. It is not good. It is like the complimentary breakfasts at chain hotels but worse.
Very good Hotel.
Little run-down things, such as a torn curtain and mold in shower. It is too bad because otherwise it was ok.
best spent money! cheap, but breakfast included! swimming pool available! perfect!
almost everything except the location
location, very far from metro/subway
It was close to the Medical Centre
The room was not too clean and did not smell nice. Very run down
The positive element of this hotel was the value. It would be difficult to beat this price in June and July for Bethesda. Limited free parking a plus. Great location to metro and Bethesda restaurants including Guapo's Mexican Restaurant, NIH, USUHS, Naval Hospital, Walter Reed
The ventilation system is outdated and noisy. The rooms are small and modest (but I must say was clean). The continental breakfast was very limited and not of good quality. Staff transported VERY smelly trash bin on elevator with hotel guests on board rather than waiting until elevator was empty.
It was quiet
Pool area was not kept clean
Some of the staff are very helpful specially the lean guy with the stylish long front hair and the other tall gentleman with french beard.
The rooms need to be renovated completely, the carpets are worn out and they literally stink. There is no proper ventilation and also the AC ducts keep making these annoying sounds that can scare a person with a heart ailment. The breakfast menu option never changes, it needs to be changed at least on weekly basis.
Breakfast was poor if you could improve on it
