    Historical Traveler Reviews Adam's Inn Washington DC

    A Hidden Jewel


    Tired of staying in the Mc-Hotels that make you feel like you're in the same strip mall no matter what city you're visiting? Me, too. That's why Adams Inn was a breath of fresh air for my wife and I on our 9th anniversary/thirty-something-ish birthday celebration. A quaint, brownstone front porch greeted us, and an old-world, familial living area embraced us with its warmth and genuineness. Original fixtures and a friendly staff made us feel like we were going back in time. Our room, like so many at the Inn, was an original. Hand-painted walls, gracious furniture in a living area, and --Praise the Lord-- no phone or TV! We had privacy and quiet in the heart of the nation's capital, steps away from the hottest restaurants, night clubs, and cafes in the city. Breakfast was wholesome, nothing too unusual, but best of all was the courtly rapport between all of us Inn-dwellers. Adams Inn, we're permanent fans.

    Warm, charming and friendly bed and breakfast


    We stayed at Adams Inn for a "night in the city" for our anniversary.

    The accomodations were quaint and warm with unique touches. The service was friendly and excellent. The inn is centrally located, near restaurants and landmarks. We especially recommend the English basement room, which is private and well decorated.

    Quaint but Lacks Friendliness


    Great location and an excellent facility, however, the entire staff save one lacked the type of friendly service one would expect in a bed and breakfast. When asked a question about the area or simply making small talk, the staff was rude and quick to stunt the conversation.

    Other than the people, the facility was great with computer access that helps tourists find their way. I would recommend staying here for a nice visit in a fun D.C. area, but do not expect much from the staff.

    Great Experience


    We stayed here for our first Trip to D.C. and it was perfect. Its just a 10 min walk to the subway and a 5 min walk to the zoo. The room was spacious and although we shared a bathroom, there was never a wait to use it. The breakfasts were above average and the service/managment was cordial.

    The one complaint would have to be the pillows. They were very thin and made out of sponge.

    I'll be staying here next time and would highly recommend the Adams Inn to anybody. Except next time I'll bring my own pillows.

    Short, but sweet honeymoon!


    We've stayed at Adam's Inn after our wedding&reception. So we needed somewhere which let us check in pretty late. They helped us checking in outside their office hour. (We checked in around 11:00pm.) We loved our spacious and tasteful bedroom, the cozy TV/computer room, etc... The staff were nice and helpful too.

    Cozy and Quaint


    We were warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home. Tea, coffee and cookies were available at all times of the day. The room and bath were immaculate and the breakfast simple, yet tasty. Common areas were comfortable and nicely decorated. The price was right, too!!

    Great Bed and Breakfast!


    We really enjoyed our stay at Adams Inn. The people were nice. It was in a great location. Very inexpensive! Only reason it gets a 4 instead of 5 is because the fire alarm in our room went off every time you took a shower. But management moved us without any questions at all!

    A 5-star bed and breakfast


    A quiet, clean, charming spot in hip Adams-Morgan. Great staff who want to make your stay pleasant, tasty breakfast and afternoon tea, guest laundry and internet facilities, and a lovely yard for private sunning or conversation.

    European Charm


    This is a very friendly, relaxing inn with a distinct European charm. I was impressed by the amenities and the physical design, including the woodwork. The inn also is in a fascinating section of town with lots of nightlife. The staff work hard to make this a very pleasant place to stay.

    Convenient, cozy and clean


    What a great place to stay!! Aweesome location with great rates. Stayed here a couple of years ago and then paid a return visit in September. They have done a great job renovating and the breakfast is much improved.

    Definitely a place worth recommending.

    ... penalty can sure eat up a day but.

    We sailed through the DC arrivals terminal smoothly and collected our luggage on time, in fact it was all going swimmingly. Then we struck the shuttle bus registration desk. The girl signed us in and then was very uncommunicative about when our bus would depart. We eventually extracted the bus number from her and a promise to call us when it was ready. She didn't, we saw the bus ...

    ... We get back the campground and there are some nice forest walks around the area so we decide to chuck our gear on and go check it out. We decide to go for a run through it, which ended up being around 5km in total. It was a nice way to get some exercise done, rather than running on a treadmill or on the road. We didn’t get to see anything but birds and run into a few cobwebs, but we tried.

    We get back, drink lots and lots of water, ...

    ... we split off from Pedro and tried a few rooftop bars on the street which was nice! Big day of sightseeing the next day though so we did well to be home by around 2. Sunday 12th - Hostel breakfast of champions to get us going - toast with 'grape jelly' and really awful coffee. Then first stop the White House. Really good to see it, and because Courtney had been with her top deck tour last year she knew about a better side around the back to get a good view and ...

    The Henley Park Hotel was a unique throwback hotel, antiques in the rooms.

    Checked into hotel and went do a night walk around DC. Beautiful city at night. I have been to Washington DC once, but the tour groups would always leave the city before it got dark. I am glad I stayed in the city at night, and was able to walk the city. In my opinion it is so much more beautiful at ...

    ... once again for getting back on the road come Wednesday. We met Lisa for lunch and then she took us to two fabulous churches within one mile from her home.
    The first was the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land. The gardens that surrounded this church were spacious and beautiful. The church itself was filled with magnificent art work and religious statuary. The good friars certainly have a holy place from which to do the work of St. Francis. Heck, ...
