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.
