My husband, 2 teen children, and I went to celebrate my birthday at The American Hotel. All of our meals were cooked perfect and tasted amazing. The staff is on point and makes sure you have have everything you need. Would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time. We booked 3 rooms, (1 handicap). Everything was beautiful. One of the most restful evening of our lives! Soaps are from Beakman 1801, and are super. The owners visited with us during check-in, talked about more improvements scheduled for the town. OUTSTANDING!!!

I had the best night of my life at American Hotel. Walked in to meet a friend for a drink and we spent almost 4hrs there! I had the hotel's Martini which was perfectly made.

I booked this package with spa with a girlfriend and we both enjoyed the scenery and relaxing, laid back feel. Upon returning from our treatments we...

They stuck our keys in an envelope on the front door - because it's such an out of the way place - it didn't matter. But it...

Extremely disappointed,.Particularly with lobster chowder, $$$$ plus smallest portion. All meals were marginal. Overrated now been there in the passed. Suggest trip advisor reconsider its rating. Plus it was a 50 mile trip.

We had an amazing experience at the American Hotel last night. We Went to Sharon Springs to look around. We were visiting the area with friends for the weekend. While the wives did some shopping the husbands headed over to the American Hotel for a drink. They had a great time at the bar with George and when the wives...

I booked the spa package which was amazing. It included two 60 minute massages at the neighboring Spring House Spa (note: you need to set up your spa appt.) It also included a four course dinner and breakfast. Both meals were open to anything they had to offer on the menu. I was pleasantly surprised because many package deals have...
