I've found a bedroom (quite small) for rent under $1000 in Georgetown. It seems to me to be a good price, but I wanted to get the opinions of people who are more "in the know" than me. What do you think?

I've walked around the neighborhood, and like having all the bars, shops, and coffeehouses nearby, as well as being close to the waterfront. But what do the people do for day to day needs like grocery shopping or working out at the gym? I wasn't able to comb the whole neighborhood, so I may have missed stuff. Anyways, the lack of metro doesn't really bother me, as I'll have my car and won't mind walking 30 min or so to get to Adams Morgan or Dupont in nice weather.

There's a Safeway at the quasi-intersection of Wisconsin, S, and 34th. That's probably the easiest for groceries. Otherwise Georgetown has one of at least almost every basic amenity you'll need, but in the case it doesn't, then you're going to be driving either up Wisconsin or across Rock Creek Park.

The only rub against 'west' of Wisconsin is you get closer to the University and quite a few "student" places. Certain places within a block or two of the school can get quite noisy at times. Street parking is also more difficult there. The 'east' side of Wisconsin is also known as 'East Village' which is a bit quieter and more relaxed.

That's an excellent price for Georgetown. Did you check it out to make sure it's legit? Usually 1 bedrooms are double that price. There are two Washington Sports Clubs in Georgetown, one on M and one on Wisconsin (though that's probably more Glover Park). There's also a Whole Foods on Wisconsin.
