I stayed here with colleagues on a business trip. I found this Courtyard to provide reasonable accommodations and the staff to be friendly. It is obvious from the room layout that this Courtyard is OLD. The property is decorated in the grey motif which, in my opinion, is designed to hide dirt and wear and tear. The problem is the...

My wife and I stayed last week as a backup choice -- we usually stay at Hilton family hotels -- and we're actually quite glad we did. The hotel was terrific -- clean, modern rooms, nice décor, all that you could want for a weekend stay. The ONLY complaint is The Bistro. Seriously -- at any hotel such as this,... More

Many issues with this hotel. Starts from the top. I stayed her for several months and brought the cleanliness of the rooms to the management as well as hot water issues. None of the issues were ever fixed. I also worked a negotiated rate with Director Sales to find six weeks later it was not being honored. Management is poor... More

Being a chaperone was fortunate to have room solo. Very comfortable bed/bedding. Bathroom was spacious, water pressure excellent even with hotel full of teams. Flat screen swivel so can watch from bed desk or sofa, Good desk space. Lotsa outlets to charge up. One thing quite notable is the WiFi was excellent, strong signal, fast connection. The best I've had... More

Stayed one night here, as we got in late from a Frontier Flight at the Trenton Airport. Hotel was a bit hard to find, but after a couple wrong turns, we made it. Room was very clean and comfortable. Bed was great, and bathroom good size. Only downside is no free breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.

Four of us stayed in two rooms here during Princeton reunions/graduation. The location, close to Harrison Road on Route 1, is pretty good, although like most Route 1 hotels a u-turn is required to access the hotel depending on your direction of travel. We found the hotel to be a typical Courtyard, with spacious rooms and good beds. However, I'm... More

I was on business in the area and stayed there. Going north on US 1 it's a little bit tough to get over to them on the west side of the highway..but not such a big deal that you should worry The hotel was very satisfactory in all aspects except one. That is the general manager Miguel Colon. I came... More

A very nice hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms and (most important) a comfortable bed. Very easy to find - right off Route 1. A nearby mall and plenty of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. I almost always stay at Marriott hotels and I find the Courtyard concept to be a great fit of comfort and value. A mini-market... More

The hotel is a standard but if you are used to Courtyard Marriott's delicious buffet breakfast, this one does not provide that. The hotel website gives missing or misleading information. When you call, they tell you a different story and when you get there, you actually meet a third version. So the staff matters. This hotel's staff were excellent. The... More

Excellent stay with one caution, make sure your room is on the back side of the hotel. The rooms that face the main road have a lot of traffic noise until one in the morning! However they do provide ear plugs on the nightstand lol! Overall very clean and staff was great. Food very good as well. Would stay there... More
