We stay here often when taking or picking our son up from college. The hotel is clean and staff are friendly. Only ate in the restaurant once and the food was just okay and over-priced. You'd do better to go to a restaurant down US 1. Convenient to Princeton University and shopping if you go South from the hotel. Beds... More

Checkin was easy. There is a outdoor pool for the kids. The sleeping room was nice and sufficient. Breakfast buffet was set out in the restaurant. The cost was included in our family's stay. Princeton seems like a real busy town. There is lots of shopping centers close by and NY is not too far away. We were at a... More

We were just staying one night on our way to the beach for a week. The staff was very nice. The restaurant was ok. Food was good, service was slow. Rooms need some updating. The first room we had, the bath tub was filthy. The staff was accommodating & changed the room immediately. The toilet was broken and kept flushing... More

Stayed here for 2 nights when passing through on vacation and were able to use a coupon for discounted rate. Room was very quiet and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Room was clean and in good shape, however, the closet door had trouble moving and the bedside lamp had a bulb that wouldn't attach to the fixture. On the second... More

What can I say a lobby full of kids, a police car at the front door, a drunk lady taken away, smoke coming from the kitchen. I think I experienced everything bad possible on this stay at a hotel. The room was clean and the location was close to the client.

Large hotel, accommodating several groups on the weekend we were there, offered us the best rate. Clean, spacious, rooms. Quiet 4th floor location. Restaurant in the lobby offers breakfast (not included in our rate). Friendly staff. Recommended.

My room at the Princeton Holiday Inn was awesome - huge, bright, great bed, work desk, nice finishes, and best of all, LOTS of outlets! I have found lately that even high end hotels make you crawl under a bed to charge your phone, but not this hotel! Outlets everywhere! And when you're there to work at night, that's really... More

We had a base room and got the hotel at the last minute. Booked through hotels.com and got a pretty good rate. Picked this hotel especially for the outdoor pool. Had many days with a lot of walking and needed to just kick back. About an hour drive from NYC and and hour from Philly so it would be good... More
