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

Nice hotel. Room was decent. Nothing special. We were told upon check in that there was "live music for our entertainment". No doors between floors and the stairs. We stayed on the third floor and the noise was STILL loud. Impossible to sleep until the concert was done, at around 1ish in the morning. No intention of staying there again... More

We travel to this hotel often with my work. We arrived a day early to beat the 'Blizzard of 2015' and asked for a room with windows to watch the snow. Our room (201) is over-the-top fantastic. Lots of light from the French doors, and a very spacious suite. Staff during my multiple phone calls, and during check-in were fantastic.... More

We enjoyed our Thanksgiving Day dinner so much at the American Hotel that I just had to share our experience. This was our first time at the American Hotel and we chose it since it was close to my parents and sisters. The food was fantastic as was the service. We arrived at 1:30 and left about two hours later... More

My husband and I stayed here on a Saturday night. We stayed in room 206. The hotel itself was lovely and in a great location. When we got back to our room at 10pm, the music from the bar in the lobby was so incredibly loud that it vibrated the floor. It felt like we had a private concert right... More

Attended a Bat Mitzvah and stayed at this boutique hotel with 20-rooms. Our room was spacious and contemporary. Closets and bathroom were nice size too. It's a happening place as a Halloween party was going on when we arrived. Daily breakfast morning buffet was good with coffee, great bagels, pastries, and hot or cold cereal. If you stay over and...

We had gone to a very nice wedding at the American Hotel however, we trusted in the valet service to care for our vehicle. Big mistake. I knew from how the attendant pulled away that my car was NOT in good hands. We live in Pennsylvania so therefore when we stopped for gas on our way home my husband noticed... More
