Still prefer this spot to stay with my family when I'm in the area visiting my mom. The staff is friendly and efficient. Lobby area in fine shape. Rooms could use an updating. Noisy, window air conditioning. Great location just off the Turnpike. Easy parking.

Courtyard Marriott hotels are hit and miss lately, so I was a bit nervous to book here. My first choice was booked, so I thought I would give it a whirl. The hotel, overall, could use an update. However, there were a few redeeming qualities. Here is a breakdown of the hotel. Location This hotel is located by the 8A... More

We were in NJ last min for the Intercollegiate Rowing Championships. Since it was a last minute trip for us, this Marriott was the closest one to Mercer Lake with availability. Although we were 30 min from our destination the hotel was very adequate. The lobby was recently remodeled so very welcoming upon arrival. I used the Marriott app for... More

Yes, as many reviews have said, the staff is very nice. Specifically the Starbucks counter personnel - warm and friendly, which I truly appreciated when I practically crawled to the counter for my cup o' joe each morning. The front desk personnel have their spiel down so pat that the gal who efficiently checked me in repeated her mantra about... More

I stayed here for a work conference, and the service and quality were everything I expected from the Marriott brand. For being in what I would consider the middle of nowhere and right off of the turnpike, it was very nice inside. Everything was updated to include some nice upgrades to the bathrooms. The front desk staff was soo friendly... More

Staff was very friendly and called me by my name every time I came down to the lobby. Room was nice and beds were comfortable. Property is right off the NJ Turnpike which was convenient but my room faced the road and I did hear some road noise. Biggest drawback is there are limited restaurants in the area so finding...

What you would expect from a Courtyard by Marriott property. Very convenient to I-95. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable. Small bar in lobby was a plus, especially considering New Jersey's strict liquor laws. The hotel provided shuttle service to the wedding and a delicious breakfast courtesy of our host.

I was so impressed by the front desk staff regarding their welcoming and friendly service. It would be impossible for it to be any better. Upon arrival, we were checked in by Kristopher and immediately felt like we were with an old friend. I asked him about sending a fax and his reply was, we can do whatever you want... More

Had a family party in Cranbury and needed a place to stay. We had stayed here before and thought it was good. This time it was better! Wonderful personnel, friendly and helpful. Clean and thoughtfully appointed rooms all for a very reasonable price. Great coffee too boot! Will definitely come back.

This is a typical Marriott Courtyard in a convenient location. I have stayed here many times. What makes the difference for me is the staff who move the breakfast crowd through the lobby. I need my Starbucks coffee before going to our office. The line is always long and always moves with lightening speed because the people behind the counter... More
