“BY FAR THE BEST HOTEL STAY EVER!!!!!”
Reviewed August 31, 2009

I was doing a surprise 13th birthday party for my daughter and had 20 kids invited! I have NEVER received such hospitality as I have from this hotel! The Front desk clerk supervisor CARMEN was amazing! I just have to brag about her!!Her shift ends at 3 pm that day and she did not leave until she made sure I was all set with the setup of the party! Then before she left she made it a point to have Brian (a front desk clerk) take over to help us with any assistance that we might have needed. (Thanks Brian you're kindness was much appreciated!!!) Carmen was kind, patient and oh so helpful! What awesome service! Then, all the kids went swimming at the indoor pool and jacuzzi it was wonderful! Housekeeping kept checking to make sure we had enough swimming towels. Words cannot express how thankful I'm to Carmen and the staff! (your the best Carmen!) The breakfast was great! Room service was great. My husband and I have been to plenty of hotels and this by far is the best experience that we have ever had!! My hat goes off you all of you! Thanks a million times! I will most definetly recomment this hotel!!! My daughter keeps on THANKING us for such a great time that she had! It was a great time for all the teens that were invited. NONE were bored! There was basketball, swimming, internet, tv's in all rooms and the best part It wasn't at my home!!!

We usually stay at the Fairfield when we visit friends but they were full so we ended up here. It was a beautiful suite (Studio/King) and the hotel is obviously not that old so still in good shape. Very spacious with a full kitchen including dining table and chairs, cutlery and crockery, microwave, full fridge and dishwasher.
The bathroom had a loo and double cubicle shower inside and then a vanity unit outside next to the wardrobe with full length mirror doors. No bath. Very clean.
Very comfy bed and quiet location to sleep despite being just off main highway.
I used the guest laundry and paid $1.89 for powder and 'Bounce'. The machines took 25c coins and cost $1.25/$1.00 each cycle.
Nice welcoming public areas and the front desk staff were very helpful and efficient.
Breakfast staff were very friendly and there were 4 hot choices, waffles, bagels, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal and cereal but no pastries.
Overall a good experience for our first time at one of these properties but I don't consider the price worth it if you don't actually need the facilites, which we didn't, as we were visiting friends and eating out and spending minimal time at the hotel.
The shop sold microwaveable things so if you wanted to eat in it was quite convenient.

We stayed in the king suite, and it was excellent. The sofa bed was extremely comfortable (much to my surprise). The staff was very accommodating and breakfast was goodl Would definitely stay here again. Restaurant suggestion: Fitrelli's. Inexpensive, delicious, and huge portions.

Stayed here in February 2009 to tour college campuses in the area, and the location was perfect, right of Rte 91. While there were no restaurants, etc, within walking distance, the front desk staff had copies of maps and directions right at their fingertips for malls, stores, restaurants, etc., in the area.
Staff was friendly and helpful; lobby was immaculate; room was spacious and quiet (king suite); pool area was nice, without the overpowering chlorine smell you usually get; breakfast has something for everyone.
This was a nice stay at a very clean hotel...exactly what you expect from Homewood/Hilton brand. Would stay here again next time in the area.

Hotel seems nice, but my first night was bit by bed bugs (3rd floor rm 310), woke up and found bed bug, placed it in glass cup and showed front desk. I was changed opposite side of 3rd floor since my initial request for a different floor were all booked.

I travel frequently for business and have stayed at a number of Hilton properties. However, I have never stayed at a Homewood Suites. This property is easily accessible, right off I-91. It is within 2 miles of a number of restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations.

The staff is remarkably courteous. While I don't personally use the pool, there is a nice one that was busy upon my evening arrival. There is a hot breakfast in the mornings, and a two-hour manager's reception/light dinner menu in the afternoons, which would prove useful for someone who is staying over a long period of time.

The decor is warm, and I find it more inviting than the typical Residence Inn, with a full refrigerator, microwave, stove top. I was in a studio, and it is more than spacious for one person, so I can only imagine the one and two bedroom suites are more than accommodating for a family.

  • Liked — Friendliness of staff and location
  • Disliked — Nothing!

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff is friendly and very helpful and go out of their way to be of service. There is a nice indoor pool, hot tub, fitness center and a basketball court on the property. They have gas grilles out back that guests can reserve. Breakfast is ample and tasty.

The hotel is a few miles away from grocery stores, BJs, Super Wal-mart, a movie theater and many chain restaurant options. Hometown Restaurant delivers to the hotel and has wonderful pizza; their white pizza with ricotta and broccoli is to die for.

Weekend rates and AAA Rates make this place a bargain. That is why we keep returning!

  • Liked — Great Staff, clean, comfotable, convienient
  • Disliked — Breakfast opens late on weekends-7AM. Also no real cream for coffee, only non dairy creamer
