This hotel is located at the south edge of Princeton, right off Highway 169 . It is very easy to find and within minutes of downtown, but with a gas station/C-store on one side and a major supermarket on the other, it is surrounded by traffic and activity 24/7. This may be a plus or a minus depending on your point of view.
My wife and I stayed here two nights in association with a wedding. Our friends in the wedding party said the staff went over-the-top to accommodate them so we were happy to hear that. We personally had some trouble at checkout when they could not accommodate our request to pay with cash. I have run into this at several hotels of multiple brands over the past couple years and seriously can't understand why this always has to be such an issue.
Our room was clean and comfortable, Bed quality was superb and volume was generally under control although baby noise from the adjoining room occasionally did leak through.
The hot tub was too hot for my wife, while the swimming pool was too cold. Wi-Fi was free throughout the hotel, but slow. The free breakfast was below average for the AmericInn brand. The only hot option was biscuits and gravy, which wound up in the trash because the biscuits were stale and the gravy had a weird taste (I heard other guests comment about the same thing).
The stay was generally fine... but for a small-town hotel in off-peak season, the value is debatable. I have paid less and gotten more at other AmericInn hotels as well as other brands. With the breakfast shortcomings and a room without a fridge, microwave or any high-def TV channels, the rate of $95/night including tax felt at least $15 too high. That being said, this is by far the nicest option in the area so can't blame them for pricing themselves accordingly.
