I have stayed at the Nassau Inn many times and the location cannot be beat. It is central to everything Princeton has to offer. The hotel is fine, but a bit dated. Also the air conditioning is too cold in the hotel, as well as the restaurant. In your room you can regulate the air. However, the past three times... More

The best point of the Nassau Inn is the location in the centre of Princeton. Everything you would want to see or discover is in walking distance. The hotel is deceptively large with a large arrayof rooms. As a family we had two neighbouring rooms tucked away at the end of a corridor, which worked fine for us.

Our corner room was very dark, even with all of the lights on in the room and the curtain open. It was a very spacious room with 2 very comfortable queen beds. Good sized bathroom with full tub and shower. Our sink in the bathroom leaked so it soaked all of the towels that were on the counter and posed... More

So quaint from the outside right in the middle of restaurant and shopping mecca!! LOVED the location, OLD building but rooms VERY comfy. Staff was very helpful with maps, places to eat, etc. We didn't try the restaurant because there were so many other restaurants around to try! All within blocks..A lovely summer day and night next to Princeton U

I'm kicking myself for nearly missing this very nice property, while attending my teenager's two prior soccer events at Rider University held over the past 13 months. But, as the saying goes,"The third time is a charm." I bought into the idea of the chain hotels being convenient to restaurants and shopping along Route 1. However, these hotels were tired... More

We stayed for one night, and I went against my gut and chose the Nassau inn despite the crummy reviews. The hotel in right in the center of town (charming & upscale) We literally walk out the door, across the street and you're in campus. Shops & restaurants surround the hotel. We checked in and were given a tiny old... More
