I stayed here a couple of months back. The website double booked me. They refused to credit back the second room upon my arrival even though I booked it only a few hours earlier. The hotel was very dirty and gross. I was told no manager was on duty until four day from now to discuss the situation with the... More

The hotel is well-situated and they seem to rely on that for everything else. It's distressing that in the year 2014 we're still trying to get wifi to work in the room. I didn't even have phone service in the room. They charged $10.95 for internet in the room (which never worked) but it was free in the lobby. Please... More

I stayed here for a few nights whilst working in Princeton. Its location is excellent, especially for visiting the university. I had a large room but it was mostly occupied by two large double beds. It was clean and comfortable. The room was not well lit for someone wanting to do some desk work and I guess many visitors might... More

My wife had wished to return to the Nassau Inn one more time. Reservations were made with a request for a certain room. Didn't work: what we got was a room that was small, dust on furniture and at the end of a too long hall. We know it is a historic Inn where delegates to the Continental Congress stopped... More

We had a terrible experience here. First, we booked a room online, and the computer system double-booked us. As a result, I had to repeatedly call the hotel and convince them that I had only booked 1 room, not two, and it took four phone calls and a face-to-face visit before they confirmed that they would not charge me for...

The room was nice & the location is great. The staff was just so-so. One thing I just couldn't wrap my head around was the charge for internet access. Get with it people. Free wireless is everywhere and when someone settles into a room & finds a fee to connect, it's just insulting!!

We were disappointed with the Nassau Inn. I will note that the location is great, walking distance to the Princeton campus, including Clio Hall (where they hold the information sessions and start the campus tours), as well as to shopping and dining. We arrived at night and my son hopped out, while I double parked in front, in order to... More

The Nassau Inn is right next to Princeton University and right in the middle of everything (shops, restaurants, etc). I think they recently did some renovations to the property. I got a very comfortable room. I had no maintenance issues while I was there, so kudos to the staff. The gym was as basic as it could get. Given that,... More

The hotel is well placed right in rhe center of the city. Old building you can indeed feel but if you like historical sites is not an issue. However the structure has some problems that need to be fixed. The most important one is the air conditioning system. The first room i was given had an option to tunr it... More

My family came here for a Princeton squash tournament and we stayed at the Nassau Inn. First of all, they charge 10.95 for wifi in the rooms and the only free wifi they have is in the lobby. When we tried to order a movie from the TV, it cost 17 dollars! We also were staying in one room for... More
