I stayed here on a overnight business trip and it exceeded expectations. It right in the middle of town and at first looked a little outdated. A client recommended it as a reasonable and convenient hotel. The hotel was freshly painted and the room was recently renovated. It was clean and though it is no luxury resort, it was a... More

The accommodations were comfortable and clean. If you are looking for more of a resort feel, this is not the place. It is a great location for shopping and access to the beach. I had an ocean front view of Great Bay. Great location if you like shopping! Other than issues with the cable and losing almost half the cable... More

My friend and I arrived around midnight because our flight was delayed, and though the front desk was technically closed, there is usually a security guard or someone there to assist. The security guard, Noble, was great. He helped us to our room and recommend several restaurants during our stay. Our 'room' turned out to be a good size apartment... More

We stayed at the Horizon View in Phillipsburg in June 2014. The location is beautiful. The accommodations are great, not fancy but just our style. We saved some restaurant expenses by cooking in the nicely equipped kitchen in our condo a couple of nights. A grocery store is about a 10 minute walk away. The staff was super friendly and... More
