We have visited the Princeton Econolodge previously. It is reasonably clean and well-maintained but we found a couple hitches. Another couple reported to the desk/manager that their air conditioner was not working. So when we found our unit had a broken control panel, and outside temp in 70's, I hauled open the sliding window. Next day I commented to d/m,... More

I booked at this hotel as it was the only option available for this busy celebration weekend in Princeton. It was the only room left out of the hotels in Princeton. It was a smoking room that of course smelled awful and was very run down and dirty. They did fix the shower head that sprayed all over. They said... More

This is a small hotel, there are no elevators, you have to walk up the stairs. So if you have a room on the second floor, you have to haul all your luggage up the stairs by yourself. If there's ever a problem for you, I suggest requesting a room on the ground floor. The room itself was exactly as... More

Room was fine, very quiet. Management was friendly and helpful. CLose to I-80, and easy to get into and out of. Rooms were basic, but more than adequate. Had a really great night's sleep here. would stay here again

The motel has interior corridors which increase its safety and warmth during the cold winters. A breakfast is included. The front desk staff was friendly. There is adequate parking. Go about a mile to the south to the historic district of Princeton.

Not much to do or see in this little town. What must have been a nice Italian restaurant is now closed. Weeds - not herbs - surround it. The Econolodge is next to the expressway exit, quite convenient! However, the choice was between sleeping in a hot room or staying awake in an air conditioned room. The A/C was in... More

We stopped here on our way home. It was a nice hotel, a little outdated but still nice. We picked this one to swim at the indoor pool but were too tired from driving to get in. The room was nice. Close to the interstate so we could get right back on the road in the morning.

We stayed one night while in the area. Staff was very friendly at check in and check out. Bed was comfortable but the pillows were not. We did not have time for the free continental breakfast. It only ran from 6 to 9. There were a lot of kids this night but the sound did not travel through the walls.... More

Stayed here one night after long exhausting day of driving. Room was very clean and quiet. Staff friendly and helpful. There is an indoor pool! Provided free breakfast was a little on the slim side but coffee was good and plentiful. I would stay here again.

What I expect from lodging while traveling: a clean room, courteous staff, nice hot shower, good internet. This hotel met all of those criteria. A couple of minor points for the hotels consideration: the side door security lock was broken so one could enter without a key; not a problem for me but some people might worry. And secondly, someone... More
