“Wedding Reception Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

We attended a wedding at the Windsor Ballroom and spent the night after. It was very difficult to make a reservation at the hotel You must call to reserve. The online reservation system did not work for the hotel. This was very inconvenient as the hotel gave enclosures for the wedding invitation that gave a code for booking online at the wedding rate and it does not work. Our first impressions of the hotel were good. The room looked recently renovated, was nicely decorated and clean. The pillows were kind of hard though. The rooms were also a little noisy. In the morning you could hear a lot of banging around such as other guest room doors and the housekeepers vacuuming the hallways. It was pretty early too, about 7 or 8 o'clock. The wedding was very nice. The food was generally good. The only thing I didn't like was cake was not served to anyone who wasn't in their seat. Anyone dancing, in the bathroom or socializing at other tables did not receive cake. Overall the stay was very average.

When staying at this hotel I found the hotel staff outstanding and exstremely accomadating.
One staff member really stood out by helping me when time was short. The front desk personnel were great and always friendly. Rooms were very clean and priced great. The area around the hotel is safe.

Tara and her entire wedding staff provided a great atmosphere on planning our wedding at the East Windsor Ballroom at the Holiday Inn. We had our wedding and reception at this facility. The wedding ceremony was very touching and very personable. The reception immediately followed by a night of great dancing and wonderful memories. Our overnight stay was very special. The honeymoon suite was so beautifully done. My husband and I loved the Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Our wedding guests stayed and they too had a great time. The rooms are very clean and spacious. We woke up to a great breakfast and were very happy overall with our experience.

The hotel is within a minute of exit 8 on the NJ Tpke, 5 minutes to Highstown-quaint little town with unique shops and places of business, 10 minutes from Walmart and very good late night food delivery in the area. There is a restaurant lounge on the first floor and banquet facilities in hotel for events of all sizes. Ample FREE parking.

My stay was for three Days. The room was thoroughly clean, I am a stickler for checking mattresses, appliances, corners and crevices. Completely flawless. Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker very clean and in working order. Vending and ice machines on each floor. Toiletries are by Bath and Body Works with eco-friendly bathroom tissue. Bed was plush and very comfortable, they even label your firm and soft pillows. Upon check-in guests receive a snack or beverage voucher for the lounge for being a rewards member. Thermostat did not control heat and air, however manual control was working on the unit itself. Washer and dryer for guests on the first floor, cost was $1.50 per machine. Also has laundry detergent dispenser. Noise level is low although many events were going on during my stay. Front desk associates were very pleasant, helpful and thorough. Housekeeping team literally cleaned my room and linens each day as if it were my first night. I typically favor higher end hotels, but this location will be my place to go when traveling the turnpike.

Definitely worth your investment.
Hotel also accepts coupons from the hotelcoupons.com magazine! I saved a great deal of money, and was not slighted by being placed in a lower standard room. Same service, same quality, less money. Fantastic stay!

I stayed in this hotel for a two day girls weekend. We wanted somewhere close to NY, and well priced. I found the hotel neat and clean, i especially loved having so many pillow choices, and found the staff to be extremely courteous. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to getaway not too far from NY.

We chose this hotel for location on our road trip up the East Coast. It was conveniently located right off the NJ Turnpike. I booked a AAA rate, which I thought was pretty good. But I found a lower rate in one of the hotel coupon books you can pick up along the highway. I called the hotel and they said they would honor the coupon rate if I brought it at check in. I appreciated that! The lobby was clean and modern and the parking lot was well lit. The room was nice, but I didn't like the pillows and the bathroom shower had a plastic-type wall wrap, which I didn't like. But for one night and a low price -- not expecting the Ritz! There is a restaurant on site - I think - but we didn't use it. Breakfast is not included in the price. We found a gas station / Dunkin Donuts about a block away, so that worked for us the next morning. For a quick stay along the highway, I would recommend this hotel.
