Great customer service

The hotel was very clean and the staff courteous. The room was a little small but it had everything you would need.

Nothing Special

The American Inn was fine, but nothing special. The room was ok, but small, and everything (windows, bathroom) seemed old. The sound proofing between rooms could use some updating as well. But the location was convenient and the price was ok compared to the chains.

Tiny room, needs updating

I don't know were to start! The A/C was broken. There was no hot water one night. The handle on the shower faucet was broken.

Clean, Convenient, Pleasant Stay for Travelers

The American Inn was a nice place to stay during my visit to DC. I was in town on business and wanted a comfortable quiet room near the metro so I could attend my meetings. This place fit the bill. Additionally, the continental breakfast was nicer than your typical continental breakfast, which I appreciated. The staff also ensured there were coffee and cookies available all day long. I took advantage of the coffee to keep my energy levels up but didn't try the cookies. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall I'd give the place a 3.5 (above average) because my stay and the hotel seemed a bit better than a 3-star but not quite a 4-star.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If for whatever reason you end up grabbing a bite after 10PM, Tastee Diner a couple of blocks from the hotel is a nice diner dining experience. Also, the staff are very friendly and have interesting thoughts on everything. If you go, make sure you say hi to Larry the cook.

Pretty good (with one large exception)

We stayed 2 days over Christmas at this hotel and saw positives and negatives (and some things that were just plain weird. The positives first: + the hotel is in a good location with plenty of dining options nearby + the front desk staff were efficient and very friendly + the room was clean and comfortable, and the beds were very comfortable + the rate was very good with a promo code Now the negatives: - the room was small and the bathroom was very small - the parking lot is very small (the hotel has some arrangement to use the municipal lot across the street if they run out of space - although the hotel was nowhere near booked while we were there, we easily heard hallway voices and doors slamming shut - worst of all there was no housekeeping for our room between nights. Weirdness: ? The wall safe was mounted on a stand about one foot off the floor ? the toilet was a commercial design like you'd see at a highway rest stop, with a pressure feed activated by a long chrome handle behind the lid ? drop ceilings in hallways and rooms. We would be okay with the hotel if not for the housekeeping.

Not recommended

Beds comfortable; I was given a handicap-room (without request) which had no room for dop kit in bathroom. Room doors slammed when shut; noise from other rooms was too audible. Elevator broke while I was there and no help was offered to schlep heavy briefcase - my hip does not allow stair-climbing easily. Hotel staff was not very skilled in English. The hotel is 'tucked back' very hard to see - cab drivers consistently had difficulty finding it; the cabbie they called for me couldn't find the restaurant I wanted.

Great Location for foodies!

This hotel has amazing food within walking distance! They said about 100 restaurants. The hotel is a bit older but aside from our air conditioning issue we everything was fine. We asked to move rooms because our a/c wasn't cooking but the hotel was booked so they brought us fans. I'm sure we could have pushed the issue but seemed comfy enough with fans.
