    Reality beats virtuality!


    Wow! It's not often that reality beats expectations after choosing a B&B solely by their web site, but this is a true treasure! 15 walking minutes away from the Woodley Park Metro station, in a quiet residential area, just a few blocks away from the bustling nightlife of Adams Morgan, if you so desire.

    Insider's tip:
    If you're attending conferences along Connecticut Ave (Hilton Washington, Marriot Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham), choose this alternative and save half your hotel budget!

    Unique Quality: Outstanding service. Clean, well-kept rooms, kitchenette with tea and coffee, sumtous breakfast, plenty fo space for lounging, free Internet acess, and if you bring you laptop you can even do it WiFi...
    Simply great!

great price and location

by TripAdvisor Member santokkie

overall, i would recommend the adams inn. a few thoughts:

--excellent location. short walk to most of the neat places in adams morgan, yet far enough for a quiet night's sleep. the street that adams inn is located on is also very well lit.
--the breakfast is a continental breakfast. it was mostly cereals, bagels and yogurt. not that impressive, but given the price, it was good.
--the rooms are clean and simple. bathrooms are also very clean and quaint.
--the beds are okay. the pillows are a bit flat and hard though. the bed cover and sheets are very clean and changed daily. however, the top two layers (a flannel like covering and the comforter) i noticed were kept the same from room to room.
--the price cannot be beat.

overall, i would definitely stay here again.

Wishwe stayed longer

My cousin and I took a road trip last summer up to D.C. and stayed at the Adam's Inn our last night there. We thought it would be fun to try different hotels for each of the nights that we stayed in D.C. Unfortunately, we should have stayed at the Adam's Inn for the entire duration of our visit. The staff was very curtious. We felt right at home. I do remember our room being a bit unlevel but it was nothing that kept us from a good nights sleep. Because we had a car, we opted for a garage spot. Most of the city charges 20 dollars plus tip for the valet drivers. The Adam's Inn was only 10 dollars (at least that was the rate last summer). The only problem that we encountered with garage was the alley. Getting in and out was a little tricky for this suburanite but it made us feel like we were just one of the locals. The laundry room was decent. And we met some interesting fellow guests while at breakfast. I would deffinitely recommend it to anyone travelling to D.C. and I would certainly stay there again.

Our very first B&B and it was a winner!

Our Adam's Inn review is long overdue as we stayed there a couple of nights over a year ago. We still would like to throw in our two cents so here it is. The Inn is in a great location - nice eclectic neighborhood, convenient to an excellent array of restaurants, stores with various price points, and mass transit. There wasn't a lot of parking so we kept our car in a cramped garage provided to us by the Inn (for an extra $$ of course). Keep the Lincoln Navigator at home unless you negotiate an entire garage for yourself. We used the train to get to and from the touristy section of DC and it worked out very well. I think it took us around 30 minutes or less from station to station - so assume it will take you 45 minutes from the Inn's doorstep to the monuments once you include your walk to the train station. The Inn itself was an older brownstone from what I recall, but well maintained. Our room had a private bath which was quite small. The sink felt like it was the size of a coffee mug though things like this can be expected from an old-time facility where space is at a premium. The rest of the room was clean, maintained, and welcoming. The breakfast that was served was a cut or two above what you would normally expect from the continental style at a chain hotel. No pancakes, but there were lots of good eats to choose from. We ate at a dining room table with other guests. If you don't like that sort of thing just take your food into another lounging room. Or enjoy it outside (which we did one morning) as there is nice lawn furniture in the back and a porch in the front. Noise seems like it could be an issue depending on who else will be staying at the Inn. A crowd of rowdy young spring-breakers would be unlikely, but I’d be a little concerned about parents with wild kids. The walls aren’t made of cement and the rooms are quaint. But these are issues you could reasonably expect to find at any hotel so don’t let it bother you here.

The bottom line for us was that we really enjoyed our experience here. I am a pretty private person and it took a minute for me to warm up to not having the environment of a hotel which might have offered more privacy to some degree. But I was quickly overcome with the style and class of this B&B. Throw in the convenience of the neighborhood and I was sold. The $99 we paid (before parking fee) was a very fair deal. We would feel really good about recommending this place to anyone who is considering something a little out of the norm while in D.C.

Lives Up To Its Reputation

by A TripAdvisor Member

We arrived too early to go straight to our room, but the staff was welcoming and let us relax in the lobby with hot chocolate and cookies. There was a safe place to stow our luggage, internet access, television with VCR and movies in a common area downstairs, along with board games and plenty of reading material.

Room was very clean, nice decor, hardwood floors. We stayed a week last spring and it was always fresh, and the included space heater was more than enough to keep us comfortable. A kitchen and refrigerator downstairs were very handy as well. We are young, budget travellers and used to roughing it, but this felt luxurious to us, and older, wealthier guests seemed to agree.

Quick access to Adams-Morgan area a couple blocks away with restaurants like the excellent The Diner and La Fourchette. Very fun place to be on weekend nights.

Only bad thing was the walking distance to the Metro stop which, after a day of walking through D.C., could be a little daunting and chilly, but a bus service runs from the station to the corner at Adams Blvd for a quater per person.

We love this place and would stay there again!

Great Place & Fun Area

by TripAdvisor Member A&A_F-L

Loved the b&b. Our room was huge and lovely. The breakfasts were a sociable start to the day, the staff very friendly and the area is great. It was our first time in Washington and we chose to be in Adams Morgan as it sounded a great area. Fortunately we were right. Lots of great places to eat and drink all within 5 miuntes walk. Recommended without hesitation.

Highly recommended - super friendly

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed at Adam's Inn for a week in September and I've nothing but good things to say. The rooms are pleasant and light with good air-conditioning, the breakfasts were great and the staff super friendly. We were staying with our 7-week old daughter and there were some good common spaces to hang out in, including a dining room, a TV area and a garden. I also really liked the location. The centre of Adams-Morgan is less than 5 minutes walk away and the street felt very safe, with lots of people sitting outside on their porches watching the world go by. We were in DC to attend a wedding in Georgetown and we had no trouble getting to and from there, and to various tourist spots, in taxis, which can be hailed on the main intersection in Adams-Morgan and which are reasonably priced (at least by London standards). The closest metro station (the one near the zoo) is a 10-15 minute walk and there also seemed to be buses running down towards Dupont Circle. There are lots of nice places to eat in Adams-Morgan itself and some tourist spots are in walking distance, including the zoo and the Philip's Collection (about 20 minutes). We were a little nervous beforehand about traveling with such a young child, but we had a really lovely stay. We paid around $100 for a large room with a bath, which was very reasonable compared with the places we looked at in Georgetown. I would definitely stay here again.

Don't Stay in Room 38

by TripAdvisor Member GB003

My wife and I stayed in Adam's Inn for 3 days starting on 31st October. The receptionist said that she would give us Room 38 which was at the back of the building on the 3rd floor so that we would not be disturbded by the Halloween festivities at the front. This should have been a warning as this meant that I had to carry 2 very heavy bags up two flights of stairs. I am not very fit and suffer from severe back problems so I should of complained immediately.
When we got to the room we were very disapointed - it had a slope of at least 6 inches from one side to the other which was very disconcerting. It had one double bed in one corner which sloped into the middle so was not suitable for two people. The other bed was suitable for a child but not an adult. The curtains on the windows were so thin that it was not possible to darken the room so it was nearly impossible to sleep past dawn. It would not be that hard to put up decent curtains or blinds and to replace the beds.
On a positive side the Inn is well positioned and the staff fairly friendly. Based on the other reviews I suspect that the other rooms are fine but beware if they offer you room 38
