In the past the Princeton Castle Resort was a real gem. Now, due to lack of maintenance, the resort is crumbling in on itself. The place is under new management, and they are doing everything they can do to bring this place back to where it was, however the following is what we experienced: We rented a "cabana" and I was fully expecting a truly rustic "shack", but the front window in the door was missing, the drapes looked like they hadn't been changed in years and the mattresses were really dirty. Like the last reviewers experience; the atmosphere where the cabanas are located (along with the teepees and RV parking) was chaotic, dirty (loads of trash was piled up), and there were a lot of people drinking and settling in for a long night of partying. We upgraded to a less rustic cabin, but again, the upkeep is lacking and the mattresses, floors, even the walls and doors were filthy. The pool was not filled. The grounds look nothing like they do on their website. On the upside, the location of the cabin was great. It was quiet, close to the toilets (but again, the toilets were pretty disgusting) and it was tucked next to the creek and the cement plant ruins, so it was quite pleasant; especially with the deer "frolicking" next to the cabin. I found this stay quite sad, because it's a lovely place with loads of potential, but the lack of maintenance made this a "miss" in my books. With all of that said, I would probably return in the future, to stay in a chalet or cabin, in the hopes that it's been restored and brought back up to the high standards from the past.
