Ideally located from NYC (1 hour), Atlantic City (1.5 hours) and Philly (1 hour). The room was clean and well maintained. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was awesome of my 2 boys to swim. The hotel restaurant also had reasonably priced food. All in all a great stay!!

They have signs posted that they are renovating, but I saw no work being done. The room was musty smelling, the bedding was dirty, the wallpaper peeling, carpets stained, the staff was busy talking to each other while checking us in and no offers to help move luggage, etc,, there was an old newspaper on the desk by the TV,...

Our group tour arranged for us to stay here for two nights. We could never have come to this place on our own if the tour bus did not drive us here. The room is large with two double beds. The room is clean, too. They also serve free ice drinks in the evening and hot coffee in the morning... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Somerset for a recent event. My daughter found trash under one of the beds (an empty Doritos bag and a soft drink beverage cap). The rest of the room seemed minimally clean. Front desk staff were polite, but when I asked whether someone could help me get our luggage to our room (I... More

This place has run downhill for the past several years. We WILL be staying elsewhere from now on. Their facilities has degraded from nice to intolerable. Now they have put motion detectors on the rooms' heating/AC units. Which, I understand for cost reduction for power. HOWEVER, now the rooms set with uncirculated air, and no AC, which leaves them very... More

A Mixed review. Booked through Hotels.com. Always a mistake!! Room was nice, though the location was at least 150' from the one and only elevator. Location easy. The sports lounge a joke for food !! The place was empty. We should have known.

I booked this room at half price for two nights through priceline.com because I had a wedding in the Clinton area and couldn't spring for the $140/night rooms there. I ended up in the disability room on the second floor near the elevator. The A/C in the room worked reasonably well, although it ran nonstop in auto and the air... More

I never stayed at Holiday Inn before, so I had pretty low expectations. Have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with my stay here. We had to book a room here for my daughter's dance competition down the road and it was the most reasonably priced out of all the other options. The hotel looked like it was in... More

We stayed here for a local soccer tournament and had booked 2 rooms as there were five of us. I called to book the reservation instead of booking online to inquire about adjoining rooms.

We appreciate your comments on our hotel and thank you for your stay at our property. We apologize for the issue with the adjoining rooms, summer is one of our busier times of the year and with limited availability check-in time can play a role in its delay.
