The Adam's Inn B&B is your cozy home away from home in Washington, DC. We offer friendly personal service, clean, simple rooms, and a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. We are located on a quiet residential street in the lively Adams Morgan neighborhood, a multicultural entertainment district that is home to more than 100 of DC's most popular shops, restaurants, bars, and music clubs. We are a 10 minute walk from the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan METRO station on the Red line, and the Columbia Heights station on the Green/Yellow line. All rooms are air-conditioned, and a delicious continental-plus breakfast is served daily. You can also meet other guests from around the world in the TV lounge, computer room (free Internet access), reading rooms, patio-garden, or on the front porches.

Older row houses, well maintained, less expensive

3.0 on August 22, 2016

Adam's Inn is acessible by public transportation (Circulator bus can help if you don't want to walk a few blocks from Metro). When using the Orange or Blue line, taking the Circulator all the way to McPherson Square (actually Franklin Square near McPherson Square Metro entrance) saves a train change from Red or Green lines, but takes too long in rush hour traffic. Three older row houses on a quiet residential street are well maintained, staff is accessible, tastefully decorated. Breakfast is good on fruit and pastries, has some protein (generallyhard boiled eggs and slices of cheese). Prices are less expensive than many DC locations. Definitely a place I would stay again.

Surprise find on a business trip

I found Adams Inn on Priceline and booked it for a one-night trip to DC for work. I was pleasantly surprised by my room, which faced the street and had four bright windows (with shades and curtains). It was basic but comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly staff. The continental breakfast with tourists from around the world was fun.

Lovely inn

Classic B&B in a lovely neighbourhood

4.6 on May 21, 2016

Needing a break from chain hotels in car dominated pedestrian unfriendly locations, we gave the Adams Inn a try. We were very pleased with our choice. For a start, the neighbourhood is gorgeous. Leafy, quiet and close to a dynamic cosmopolitan district of top restaurants, bars, clubs and local shops. The rooms were quaint and comfortable and the ambience was very homey. If you are looking for in-room cable TV, bar fridges and the like, stick too the chain hotels, as this is not that sort of place. There is a downstairs TV room and kitchen, providing ample opportunity to meet and mix with fellow guests. As far as the B&B style of accommodation goes, this is first rate.

Very comfortable and charming

My husband and I stayed in the carriage house last weekend. This Inn is located steps from all of the excitement and restaurants in Adams Morgan. The staff were warm and friendly and the rooms reminiscent of a simpler time. That being said, they have everything you need!

Really like this place

3.6 on March 24, 2016

I've stayed here at least 4 or 5 times. Love the place except now the price has gone up. They used to offer a little discount for parents who are visiting their college-aged kids (students) in the area, but now it only applies if you're in a room with a private bath, which I can't afford. Are they under new ownership? I can't afford this place anymore.

Our stay at Adam's Inn

4.4 on March 24, 2016

We stayed a couple of days at Adam's Inn on Lanier Place. I was very impressed with the historic value of this charming Inn, loved the decor which reflects the historic time and special location in the Capitol City. Pay attention to the many little items which are very unique ! The Inn is very clean and the staff is courteous and very helpful. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. 5 stars !

We planned to only stay one night but loved it so much we decided to stay another. We had to switch rooms and our new room was available immediately. Great staff in a cozy setting.
