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! We ate dinner on property, it was marginal at best, but the waitress(bartender) was even... More

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.

I liked this hotel and not like any studio apartment. Comfortable and affordable. I got a better deal through Priceline. Not too jazzy and don't expect much and is better when compared to other hotels in similar budget. Food is good I rate 4/5 for food at the restaurant within this hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights during the snow storm that wasn't. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, room was clean and spacious and food was great. I stayed here last year for 1 night and had the same experience, will stay here again whenever necessary for work and highly recommend!

This is probably one of the best Holiday Inn's I have stayed in for some time. Very clean, pleasant staff, nice, large and sanitary room with all amenities working. Far enough from Route #1 that road noise is not a problem. Bed was comfortable, not so firm as many tend to be, soft enough to work with your shape. The... More

Spent my New Year's Eve at this hotel, which hosted a group event that included dancing. The room was spacious, spotless, and sophisticated. It was clear that the hotel had undergone a recent "re-do" and renovations were well done. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, though there could have been more (and quicker) bartenders working the event. My room... More

Stated there for a week in summer. The pool is very pleasant on hot days. The hotel is in a depressing zone outside of the town of Princeton. Fortunately there is a shuttle which can bring you in town in the morning and back in the evening (before 8pm). The shuttle driver, Michael is very nice! Yet, the shuttle runs... More

Very cost effective hotel close to the University and national labs, large room, useful shuttle that works. Paid for breakfast but should have gone elsewhere, bacon looked days old. Good bar and friendly staff.
