2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2010

Stayed at the Holiday Inn with colleagues during a 4-day business trip to New Brunswick. Clean, modest rooms, pleasant staff, good price ($91/night when I was there). Wireless included.

The downsides:
(1) odd smell in the hallway that did not dissipate over the course of 4 days. Could not identify the source of the smell
(2) limited dining options. Room service available for breakfast only (6:30am - 10:30am). On-site restaurant (Jersey) has average bar fare. The kitchen closes early (10:00pm on a Thursday night I was unable to get any food at the hotel; was advised to go down the street to Ruby Tuesdays).
(3) Limited business center. Very small, with 2 computers but no printer.

For my purposes, the Holiday Inn Somerset was serviceable. A 4-day stay is perhaps a bit long, particularly given the limited dining options, but for an inexpensive 1 or 2 night stay it is perfectly fine.

I stay here every year for a week end with the Garden State Cat Club -
staff is very friendly, restaurant is ok but I prefer to go off grounds to dine.
Rooms are extremely comfortable - beds are outstanding !!

This had been the second time we stayed here. The first visit was great. This most recent visit was not so great. Although it has a nice location close to I-287, the rooms could use some updating and the air conditioners are REALLY noisy. We stayed during one of the many heat waves and we had to keep cycling the A/C on and off so we could sleep because it was so loud.

if you are looking for a decent place to stay, this hotel would qualify but do not expect a lot of luxury.

I have stayed at this hotel on multiple occasions this year and I would rather stay here then some of the other choices you have in the neighborhood. The staff is always friendly. The bar is always full of people. The restaurant serves good food and the breakfast is definitely something you want to try. It is quiet and you will get your work done. The deals are always fantastic and spacious rooms. The bathroom is large enough and has amenities setup all the time. The business center is ready to go with a printer and wifi works perfect throughout the hotel. The pool area is clean and well kept and you wont mind a dive. Besides that there is ample parking around the hotel and is easy to locate. The fixtures in this hotel are much more up to date than the rival across the street Crown Plaza.

My stay at the Holiday Inn Somerset-Bridgewater was fantastic. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are clean and spacious. The rooms are very affordable. The other plus about this particular hotel is its staff's attentiveness to the individual's needs. If you are in this area, I suggest you stay in this Holiday Inn. I have stayed in many hotels around this vicinity and found this one to be the best overall. The price, the people, the rooms, and the ambiance are very inviting. I give this hotel 5 stars....

My boyfriend and I stayed for the weekend and we had much fun. The pool was clean and refreshing. The rooms were extremely clean and relaxing. We stay at the Somerset Holiday Inn very often. My favorite part of the room is sleeping on the bed, It's fluffy, soft and comfortable. The food is also very nice at the bar they have downstairs. The hotel is located near great restaurants and nightlight which is in New Brunswick, nj. I deff. recommend to stay at this hotel.
