“Did the Job. Would Definitely Return.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We needed to spend one night at a hotel b/c of an early athletic competition at Rutgers Livingston campus. I needed some place clean and reasonably priced that was close to the campus. The Holiday Inn did the trick. The front desk staff were very friendly. The room was nice, clean and updated. For a place to stay, it did the trick. We weren't able to utilize any of the extras (pool, restaurant, etc.) so I can't comment on these. I can say that I would return if I needed a place to stay in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very friendly and courtious, the hotel rooms were recently renovated and very clean and extremely comfortable. We also liked that it was attached to a Ruby Tuesday's which had fantastic food. The breakfast buffet was hot and well stocked each day. I would recommend this to anyone and will definately stay there again!

I got "bumped" here from the Embassy Suites. This is the second time I stayed here in the last year. Although the hotel seems old and needs some TLC, the staff goes out of their way to be helpful (particularly the very pleasant black lady with the auburn wig who works behind the desk and the gentleman who runs the breakfast area - sorry, but I'm no good at names).

Great location - plenty of restaurants nearby. The "hotel" restaurant is a Ruby Tuesday, which is definitely a notch above most hotel food. But there are a considerable number of very good alternatives within a five-minute drive. Additionally, there is a mall right across the street, with a variety of stores, including a Macy's, Walgreen's, etc. Within a 5 minute drive are a Target, Walmart, etc. For convenience to restaurants and stores, this hotel is as good as it gets.

The hotel has an indoor swimming pool and a small gym, with a few treadmills, elliptical machines, etc. I used the gym twice and pretty much had the place to myself. Not the newest equipment, but functional.

Actually, that is a pretty good description of the Holiday Inn - not the newest, but functional. And a good location for Central Jersey.

walked into the hotel in distress having been denied room by my originally booked Hampton Inn which is nearby and after a horrible and racist behaviour by the manager and team there. and the frotn staff anf supervisor - michael and jaffer really were kind and helpful. without their kindness would have spent the night on the streets literally. the timing was bad coming just 3 days after Hurricane Sandy had devastated the area and the hotels ran full as residents moved to hotels since there was no power in their houses. the rooms were good, the service very good. if only there was a compliant it was the breakfast spread being the same everyday but then that was the case with all hotels I stayed in the US during this trip. also if not for the emergency the price of a room night for the location is slightly on the higher side.

this hotel was very clean, the location was just 45 mins. from NYC. A mall across the street and other shopping centers close by. The breakfast buffet was delicious every morning, everything was hot and lots to choose from. I would go back here next time we travel to NYC. The Ruby Tuesday restaurant that's attached to the hotel was great..what a great salad bar, they even refilled some items for us. (I think it's open until 12am. and we didn't get in until around 10pm, so there wasn't much left to the salad bar of course) What a pleasant stay.

I felt like my check in experience was a little strange here, so I was a bit worried about how everything else would go. However, it was great. My room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was fantastic!! I really only had time to sleep and eat breakfast, but there is a Ruby Tuesday on property. It seemed like a nice place and was in a good location if I did need to stay for a few days.
