We met some friends there for dinner. It's in the American Hotel. The lobby is very cozy with couches and a fire place. The service was very professional and friendly. The Wedge salad is fresh, crispy and can be shared. I had the linguini in white clam sauce and my wife had the scallaps. Both were great.

Hotel is a dump that was torn down once and needs to be again. My family and I were stuck here while attending a family party. Bedding was extremely uncomfortable... Beds were outdated full size (53" x 79.5") not queen size (60" x 79.5) as promised when reservation was made and confirmed via email. Front desk staff were rude, condescending... More

My husband and I were visiting the area on our Wedding Anniversary. We stayed at the American Hotel where we had had our Wedding Reception 43 years before. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was spotless and more than comfortable. We certainly will return again.

Had a recent wedding for best friend! Hotel Manager Tom was very friendly and out going. Jesse at front desk was very kind and accommodating! Carol the bartender for the wedding went above and beyond! Food was great, and so was our room. Only complaint I had was we received our salad at wedding around 7:30 pm. Wasn't that great,... More

A hidden treasure in the sea of traditional hotels. Traveling to NJ for a wedding with a child, I needed a suite with a refrigerator and a separate area where I could sit for my early coffee while the family remained sleeping. A balcony a huge plus. We arrived, the hotel lobby is quaint with a grand piano and curved... More

We booked very last minute and it was for Labor day weekend, so that we could get a room was amazing, but we did get the last room and we know why it was the last room. The room itself was beautiful, the view was of the parking lot and roof, but we did not plan on being in the... More

Didn't stay here, but had a very nice dinner with family. Very friendly atmosphere and the food was very good! Went next door to the Court Jester for drinks after. Wait staff attentive but not intrusive.

I absolutely love this hotel. We travel a lot, and always pay extra to move from the hotel assigned by my company to the American Hotel. Staff are amazing, from the moment of check-in to the moment we leave. We were fortunate to have one of the suites on our last visit. We sat on the huge balcony and watched... More

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.
