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

My family was traveling from Massachusetts to Washington DC. We felt that instead of driving straight through for 7 hours with traffic that we would stay in New Jersey. We were all very happy with our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was very clean and our stay was comfortable. The room decor was a bit "tacky" but... 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! 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
