A boutique hotel located in downtown Freehold, walking distance to restaurants and 5 minutes from the mall. Hotel has a bar and restaurant. Sitting area with fireplace in the lobby. Staff is very friendly. A great place when you want to get away from the children for an evening with your mate.

The hotel bar and restaurant was very inviting. The hotel is right on the main street in downtown Freehold. A great little walking downtown area. Hotel would... More

My husband and i were off for another two night trip since I had midterms from school. We decided to stay here instead of the hampton inn down the street. Looking at the pictures it seemed to be a great place. First off, when we checked in I was a bit taken aback. We had pre-paid for our stay, but... More

I booked this hotel for NYE 2015 and I was so happy that I did. The room was large and clean with a fridge. I was very pleased with having been able to request a late checkout with ease. Also, for those who are light sensitive the "blackout" curtains make it really easy to sleep in!

I stayed overnight here while attending a wedding. It is a beautiful place for such an event, with several event rooms accommodating different sized parties. The main ("Majestic") ballroom is spacious and opulent. As for the hotel room itself, I was very pleased. There were nice unexpected amenities (chocolates on the pillow, plush terry robes and plush towels), the WiFi... More

The location of the hotel is good. The hotel itself looks outdated although renovations were made. The room is clean. The view from the room was awful facing garbage cans ,some roof and servers from the attached restaurant smoking and having their break. To get a good sleep at this place is a challenge. The grill bar attached to hotel... More

We booked this hotel to attend a wedding when we realized we forgot to book using the wedding block hotel. This was very near to the venue, so we just took it without having any real expectation. Boy were we surprised! First, when you approach the front entrance, you're struck by how cute the town of Freehold is. The adjacent... More

This establishment was a pleasant surprise. We stayed here for four nights and were impressed each day at the service, decor and all around excellence of the hotel.
