Located on a lovely residential street, just a stone’s throw from (but not within earshot of, fortunately) the rowdy Adams Morgan nightlife strip, the Adam’s Inn’s three 100+ year old brick rowhouses hold 27 rooms that satisfy sundry needs. School groups sometimes reserve an entire house, while families with 2 or 3 children are happy to find the inn’s English basement suite can accommodate them all. The more typical single and couple travelers have plenty of standard rooms from which to choose, with the option of a shared or private bath. The inn’s website calls the inn “a boutique hotel with a bed-and-breakfast charm,” which is misleading to the point of being funny. Adam’s Inn is a nice but not fancy, a bed-and-breakfast,  pure and simple. Guest rooms are individually decorated with comfortable furnishings, and 16 of the guest rooms have private baths. None have TVs, but there are two pleasant living rooms in which to socialize and watch TV. The Inn has been around for more than 30 years (though under different ownerships), and is plumly situated close to the National Zoo, Rock Creek Park, and good restaurants and bars, within easy access to the rest of the city. Best are its good-for-D.C. prices, especially if you take advantage of one of the discount offerings (10% off if you have a friend or family member in the neighborhood, AARP, AAA, etc.). The inn is not wheelchair accessible.
