Our room was clean and fine, but weren't we surprised when we went to breakfast and the buffet had only a handful of basic breakfast items and cost $25 for two people! It ended up being very expensive scrambled eggs. I recommend ordering off the menu or eating breakfast elsewhere.

What saves it from a poorer rating is the friendliness of the staff, the size of the rooms, and how quiet it was, even when facing the highway. But other things just should not be: one member of our group ended up in a room that stank of smoke, the breakfast "buffet" is very limited, the scrambled eggs look dated,... More

My one-night stay was on May 5, 2015. Front Desk -- I arrived at 400 p.m. and the front desk had a sign saying someone would be there momentarily. After a ten-minute wait, I tracked someone down who found the front desk person. When I passed the front desk about half an hour later, the sign was still up and... More

The Holiday Inn Princeton wasn't bad, but it pales in comparison to the Holiday Inn Express located just down the road. The room is actually pretty nice, and very comfortable. We had a good night's sleep...until being woken up early the next morning by housekeeping. The other annoyance was that the coffee (that was free) is served in the same... More

Just returned from a five night stay with the Holiday Inn at Princeton, NJ. It's situated on a nice quiet road, with a nice view of trees, but close enough to the freeway to be convenient. Reception at the hotel was professional and we were registered quickly. My room, 464, was lovely. A corner room with dual aspect overlooking woods.... More

An average hotel, i was there on a business trip in Princeton and stayed here for 1 night. Spent some time at the bar in the evening , most of the time it was empty and the dinner closes at 10. Decent and quite stay.

The hotel was clean which is important. But the breakfast was very disappointing. Cold food in the chafing dishes both mornings. I was looking forward to hot entrees but potatoes, eggs, sausage and bacon were disappointing, mostly due to temperature. French toast sticks we're hard and cold too. I could see this happening once but 2 consecutive days is unacceptable.

We Stopped here for an overnight on our way to New York. The room was nice and clean. We actually had 2 real queen beds in regular room instead of doubles. The staff was helpful and friendly. I definitely would stay here again. I didn't get a chance to try the restaurant.

Quite impressed I was when we first pulled up.... probably one of the nicest Holiday Inn properties on arrival. But boy did it go south fast! The facility and the room was nice, clean and well maintained. The staff and service was the absolute worse!

A little disappointing when you walk in the lobby. Extremely small, not much decorating. During my stay they had multiple portable heaters in the lobby. Once I got up to my room, a very different experience as the room had been completely updated. Nothing fancy about this property, but the rooms were newer and clean.
