“Comfortable stay and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

I enjoyed my 4 evenings at the Bethesda Court while I attended a conference at NIH. The staff was very helpful and those of us attending the conference appreciated the hotel vehicle with driver that was available for short trips. Close to dining and shopping!

The A/C was not working right when we arrived, the carpets were stained and dirty throughout and the beds were very uncomfortable. All in all not worth anything close to what we paid for it. We had booked for 2 nights but after the first night we checked out.

As I am typing this, I am staying in the hotel. I arrived to check in and the front desk clerk had her head down on the desk. Another clerk had to get her attention to help me. The elevator is tiny and hot as a match inside. The halls are warm and our room beyond warm and won't cool. We have been waiting for over 30 minutes for someone to check our AC. Granted, the temps were extremely high today, but we should NOT be sweating in our hotel room! Do NOT stay here! I will be asking for our money back!

Great location for tourists as everything one would need is within two or three blocks. Metro is just short 2 blocks away, numerous eateries all around...American, Asian, Italian, etc. Jenny at the front desk was very nice and patiently answered all my questions. Even though the temps were extremely high, it was very comfortable sitting in the courtyard and reading the paper. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are tiny, but we were comfortable and cool. Continental breakfast was pastries, cereal, yogurt, fruit, bagels, coffee, orange & cranberry juice...sufficient for us. Would stay there again if ever in DC area.

Room Tip: Stay on floor two or three.

I booked the Bethesda Court via an online coupon promotional and did not have high expectations, just a decent place to stay for a D.C. visit. Wow, were we ever surprised! It's very lovely, well-run with good accessibility to the Metro for an easy trip to D.C. Everyone who works the desk is gracious and helpful. There are some fine restaurants within walking distance. They also have a hotel shuttle for transportation within short distances, which is a wonderful help. I really look forward to our next trip to D.C. and cannot imagine staying anywhere else!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are just fine.

Great find on a budget ! These friendly folks try very hard to make a older motor hotel into quiet getaway for those visiting Washington, DC. Easy check in with bottled water and chocolates, updated rooms, continental breakfast included. This hotel is very close to the metro ( Red line ) and within walking distance of a number of great neighborhood restaurants. You can't beat the price ! Especially when you consider just how expensive DC can be ! It's not fancy but very comfortable.

Room Tip: Depending on your final stop , keep in mind that it's about a 30 - 45 minute commute, by the ti...

My husband and I just spent one night at this wonderful hotel and wish we could have stayed a week. Brandon at the front desk was as personable and accommodating as he could be. The staff always had smiles on their faces and said hello. The bed was super comfy and the rooms furnished perfectly. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast and I had the largest and sweetest red delicious apple I have ever seen in my life!! When we come back to this area, this is where we will stay. Great job and thank you!!
