I stayed at the Radisson in Freehold New Jersey for 2 nights/3 days in January of 2008. The purpose of this trip was for me to get away from the house for a few days. No cleaning/no cooking/no watching children ect.
Immediately upon pulling up to the hotel, I noticed what a terrible location it was in. Not only does it lack scenery, but also It's right off the busy roads...
I walked into the building and signed in at the front desk. The woman that helped me was calm, sweet, and generally a pleasure. She made my check-in so quick and painless. Then she gave me my room card and I was on my way..
Before I went to my room, I did some exploring. I wandered upon a ballroom that looked nice and large. I also saw a lot wonderful statues and paintings. The hotel is decorated to perfection..
When I finally got to my floor I noticed a strong garlic smell. It immediately nauseated me. I felt sick to my stomach. I didn't know if it was body odor or old food. I found out it was one of the maids. I don't think it would kill the hotel to ask the maids to shower every once in a while, since this is supposed to be a 4 star hotel.
My room was amazing! I had a large King size bed that looked so large and inviting. The room was well-lit and the rugs were very clean. The curtains worked easily and were very pretty. Not to mention, the flat screen tv(that I spent nearly every moment on). Last but not least, there was an actual desk to use my laptop on. It was topped off with a nice swively chair. Even though the smell of garlic was still in my nose, my new room made me very happy.
Needless to say, my room is where i spent most of my time. I went once to get ice down the hall. The second and only time I left my room was when the hotel had a fire drill in the middle of the day. Yes, a little disturbing( I was in pj's)! Nonetheless, the desk staff didn't laugh at me, which I really appreciated.
Overall, the Radisson in Freehold is an "okay" hotel. I would say it's average. The rooms are nice, the staff are friendly and efficient, and apparently lots of people have weddings there. I guess if you don't mind the smell of garlic and being in not-so-great area, then you'll be fine. Anyway, I enjoyed my stay, but I'm fairly certain I will not be returning.
