3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

While the hotel is in a great location, I found the stay mediocre in large part due to the lackluster (borderline rude) front desk staff. They seem disorganized and do not like to be bothered with questions. And, a member of my party was scolded for carrying her phone in her purse along with her key card.

I've stayed at the Nassau Inn several times over the past few years. It's an older hotel, so some quirks are expected and fine. This time, however, there was a lack of attention to details in cleaning the rooms. There were crumbs on the floor and chair, a couple of dead flies in the bathroom and towels that had definitely...

An old world inn in the center of town, THAT is the Nassau Inn, surrounded by boutique shops and restaurants. Within short walking distance to campus, this is the place to be for convenience and comfort.

Everything about this hotel is top notch! You are greeted at the door and your baggage is taken up to room in timely fashion. The rooms are beautiful! We stayed in the Judge Leonard Suite.

We stayed in Princeton to do the Amazing Escape Room and try a seafood restaurant. We had heard good things about the hotel so we booked a room. The entire stay there, overall, was terrific. After reading some of the other reviews on here, I would say that maybe we got lucky because our room had a fridge, a nice... More

The history apparently stays downstairs at this hotel. Hallways are shabby, and our room felt as if we had been annexed to an old attic room. One bizarre, tiny window that I literally had to crawl my entire body into to reach the handle for the blinds. The desk, dresser and side tables were covered with a thick film of... More

Initial appearances pass muster, however look a little closer and you will find walls splashed with who knows what, a giant hairball clogging the shower drain (so gross!), dusty fake ferns on the walls, incredibly noisy air conditioning unit, and poor customer service at the front desk. Not a stellar experience. I would not stay there again.

I returned to the Nassau for the first time in a year and a half. Definitely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in worldwide, and I'm a frequent traveler.

The location of this hotel is excellent! We stayed here for four nights on our recent visit to Princeton University. It's a historic building, so there are lots of period charms.
