American Inn of Bethesda Review

At the north end of downtown Bethesda, the American Inn breaks no new fashion frontiers for motel decor, but the rooms are clean, generally bright, and affordable. The independently owned hotel houses Guapo's restaurant, serving moderately priced Tex-Mex fare. Use of the business center—including Internet access—is free. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to the National Institutes of Health and the Naval Hospital.
