We ended up the the American Hotel because we were looking for a venue for our wedding. We will not have our wedding at the American Hotel. On our first time there, we did not had an appointment and Joy was very nice and walked us through the venue, explained their menu and gave us prices. I really like the... More

Went to a shower here. The room was very nice and service was great. The food was ok tho the salad was delicious. Maybe just the salmon was bland because the steaks looked really nicely done. The chocolate mousse was good but again nothing extraordinary.

What a great place. Recently went to a 40th Birthday at the American Hotel. The staff, the food and the ambiance was great. IN the hotel they have the Market Yard Grille which offers great food and live music. Great time!

We stayed there with two other couples. There is no door at the top of the stairs separating the downstairs bar noise from the bedrooms. The walls are tissue thin. The noise from the bar was so loud we called the desk several times. Basically they told us that the bar made more money than the rooms and if we... More

This hotel is small, but still full of personality. The decor is beautifull and the rooms are nice and clean. There was a wedding going on in the banquet room, but there was absolutely no noise bothering on 3rd floor where we were staying. The beds are just right, and the staff very acommodating. Walking distance to lots of nice... More

The renewed and remade American Hotel is really quite nice. The suites seem to be roomy as well. Nice bar, usually good music, a touch more upscale than the other Freehold night spots. We used it as home base for our 40th reunion and had some great fun and great customer service as wel.

The rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. Hotel is in a great location in downtown Freehold New Jersey, convenient to restaurants & Catering. Hotel has a fun bar on the weekends with live music. Restaurant food is ok, service was good. This hotel is a great value for the money and I would totally recommend this property.

I spent a whirlwind weekend in New Jersey (Six Flags, Asbury Park) with a side trip to Philadelphia; the American Hotel was my "base-camp" for this experience. The hotel is elegant, the staff friendly, and the room comfortable. I was upgraded to the junior suite with a king size bed, large bathroom, and nice seating area. While the room came... More

It was literally the loudest hotel I've ever stayed in. My friend got married there, so we stayed the Saturday night of the wedding. We were on the second floor (its not a very large property). We heard the music from the bar until that stopped and then could hear every single thing that happened on all of the floors.... More
