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.
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.
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.

Unfortunately today we have to leave Washington DC. We took a taxi to the airport at 10:30 am and our flight left to go to Frankfurt, Germany at 3:30 pm which is our stop over to go to London. The flight that arrives at Frankfurt arrives at 5:00 am. Then we have to get the plane to London, Heathrow at 6:30. I hope I have a good flight and get some sleep on the ...
... gave us a nice respite from the Metrorail (subway) – this time to Great Falls National Park, a very small park painted in shades of green and running alongside the Potowmack River, as it was spelled back in the day when George Washington thought it would be a useful water route for transporting goods. Locks and canals were constructed for that use, and remains can still be seen ...
... and we even had butterflies settle on us. Next was the Smithsonian Air and Space museum with real displays of everything airborne including space gear. The exhibits were excellent with sections that allowed experimentation with air pressure, wing shape etc. At about 6.30, we had had enough and walked a block to the nearest Metro Underground rail station. We were able to navigate to the right platform and train for the yellow line ...

We headed back toward the hotel in Chinatown, taking a leisurely route that took us past the Korean War Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial, and the edge of the tidal ...
... for free, with a timed ticket. The tour by the National park staff and the museum where great and it was interesting to learn all the facts about what happened. We never realised that John Wilkes Booth was actually one of the most well known actors of the time nor that there were two previous attempts by him and his conspirators to kidnap him. We didn’t also know that they also planned to kill the Secretary of State and the Vice president but these failed. The ...
