“Spotless and convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2006

Free internet worked well. I used my Marriot rewards to stay 3 nights. A great return as it is not in a high category. The hotel was spotless,and housekeeping did an outstanding job Nice decor, and it had a new look to it. Very courteous and helpful front desk. Breakfast buffet looked great, waittress was kind enough to give me the just coffee/bagel option. Good service in there (which is a bar at night.)
Pool/hot tub/laundry were all immaculate and rarely used. Very convenient location to Tpke, but quiet. Great outlets in the area and convenient to Princeton shopping
I'd stay here again even when I have to pay!

Gold and Platinum Marriott members, beware. This Courtyard offers NO perks. No welcome gift. No free breakfast (only a very poor cup of make-it-yourself coffee). No preferred rooms (mine was on the loud side, near the elevator. Not pleasant at all, especially considering construction ran throughout the night 3 out of the 4 nights.) No conditioner, no lotion, no chocolate on the pillow. Only a very poorly equipped "office" center. No quiet meeting room for priority members to "chill" and discuss business over a decent cup of coffee. Decent food is also quite a drive away

The hotel is clean, but not comfortable. The employees are efficient, but not pleasant.

I will definitely not be returning to this hotel for the remainder of my business in the area.

This hotel was very nice. I was there 1 night (July 2-3) and it was a pleasant stay. The room was very spacious. We thought this hotel was close to the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park but its about 20 mins if you don't get lost finding it. This hotel was not near any restaurants. The closest restaurant we found was TGI Friday's which was about 15 mins from the hotel. Besides that, its a pretty good hotel. Would stay again.

This hotel is very conveniently located at NJ Turnpike x8A at Rt32, and it is also easy reachable from Rt 130 to Rt 32, sort of heading NJ Turnpike ... I am wondering it could be one of the best hotels to stay should people coming from South to visit New York City. The parking lot is free and plenty, instead of $15 to $30 at Jersey City...

The front desk staff is very friendly, and the room is nice with seperated sink, the bath has marble floor and nice wall paper. The bed is very comfortable with sufficient lighting. The lights are all "yellow" not "white"; that makes the room warmer.

The pool is great and excercise is good too. One great thing that other Courtyard by Marriott did not have is the coffee machine like I used to have at Merck. You can choose from dozens of flavors of coffee, hot chocolate and capuchino ...etc and it is complimentary. The coke is $1.50 per can. I found no need to cook our own coffee in room, althought it is complimentary too.

The Tv is of big size with all the nice channels like Dicks, Cartoon Network, ESPN, CNN, ...etc. The complimentary in room high speed internet access is a great service so that I can write the report right now, instead of, after going home.

The breakfast area is great but not used at night; I have found it a great hide away place to watch TV and enjoy fireplace at the sofa next to it. In general, Courtyard designed their lobby in a way that front desk staff and see everyone, but I have found this one is better, and this nice place hided behind the fireplace is quiet.

The breakfast buffet is great as all other Courtyard with cook to order Omelet and hot dishes in addition to all other items you can think of, or can't think of, but you have to pay $8.95 for adult and $3.95 for kids which is still very good value.

If you have many people, they have type of room with two queen size bed plus a sofa bed which is great!

I got this room with Balcany that I can walk out to breath fresh air and watching cars running thru NJ Turnpike; it is something other hotel does not have.

This is the first time I visit this hotel and it is fairly new and shine and clean. I wish I can come back here soon ...

I love this place! They have spacious rooms, a GREAT indoor pool and hot tub, cozy lobby, and their restaurant has the best breakfast buffet that I have ever had at a hotel. The buffet has an omelet station, make-your-own waffles, and hot items. We will DEFINATELY stay here again!
