“Nicer than expected”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Relatively pricey for a long-stay hotel, but I was pleasantly surprised by the fit and finish of the room. Stainless steel appliances, and nicer linens and such than I am used to in these places. Definitely a big step up from an Extended Stay America.

I would say this is nicer than the Homewood Suites (Hilton) and Hyatt House hotels that I have stayed in before--but you pay for it. I would say it's about 25-30% more expensive than either of those options.

As I'm typing this, there is some sort of beetle climbing across the ceiling. The only drawback I've seen so far.

We had a family birthday event along with a multiple number of other families who did the same. Sonora, the desk clerk, housekeeping, receptionist, etc... in other words was doing it all was FANTASTIC! She didn't miss a trick trending to all of us AND ALL OUR KIDS. Breakfast was unexpectedly delicious and healthy options were available. Can't say enough good things. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel and it was absolutely wonderful! We had a King 1 bedroom on the third floor facing the highway but we didn't hear a single sound. I don't think the hotel was full, but there were a lot of people there anyway. The room was lovely and well-appointed but would pose a problem if you actually wanted to prepare a meal. It was more than adequate for warming up something or having dinner in. The furniture was quite comfortable and the bed was perfect in every way. The bath/shower combo was about the same as everywhere else but the shower head was quite nice and unexpected. The hotel staff and everyone we encountered couldn't seem to do enough to insure our stay was perfect. Everything was very very clean and when we did need something, staff was prompt and courteous. There is plenty of space to walk your dog, but you need to PICK UP after them. We picked up after ours as well as all the others who did not pick up. The hotel could have more places to get litter bags instead of just at one end of the hotel but there were lots of waste cans everywhere you looked outside to dispose of the unwanted waste. We will definitely return next Christmas to this hotel.

The hotel would get top rating from me - but unfortunately there is one serious flaw that changes everything.

I stayed there on two occasions, 6 nights in total. The staff is friendly and super-helpful, the rooms are clean, spacious and very comfortable, there is a fast internet connection, fully equipped kitchen, buffet diner is included in the room price (the beef for hamburgers was deliciously juicy) and you may even find a bag of popcorn in your room after a late evening check-in, with a note telling it is meant as a small help in case you missed diner - very thoughtful and sweet!

So what was the problem? Well, it is the building construction.

It feels like the walls are made of cardboard - one can hear everything that is going on in the next room (in my case, there was a party going on until 2 a.m., nothing particularly wild, but due to the thin walls, simply unbearable). And same goes to for the ceiling: you do not wish to have two kids running around the room above for 3 hours - in this building, you get an impression there must be a herd of elephants.

So if you are lucky and the rooms around you are empty, you will enjoy the stay, as many other did (according to the reviews). But if you arrive during busy days, the experience may be easily ruined.

Room Tip: Avoid busy days and choose rooms with windows facing the backyard (away from the highway).

Excellent accomodations. New hotel, beautifully decorated. Nice indoor pool area, outside patio with BBQ, work out room and laundry room. Business center, while we didn't use appeared to be very well apportioned. We had a studio with king bed and pull out sofa. Bed very comfortable. Daughter slept on pull out and said it also was comfortable. Room accomodations and decor among the nicest we have stayed in. That said, there were a few glitches to our stay. When we checked in on Saturday afternoon, walking to our rooms noticed the hallway carpeting dirty with chips, grass, and other dirt along the hallway. One mat inside an entry door at a staircase was covered in dried grass, hay and mulch. It just appeared as if the carpeting hadn't been vacuumed in a while. Housekeeping was still making up rooms so I figured they would vacuum after all the rooms were done. When we returned at night, the same debris remained, as well as on Sunday morning. In one area there were a large amount of crushed tortilla chips. As I was walking with a friend, she commented that the crushed chips were there since she arrived on Friday. Just seemed to be a small attention to detail that was obviously not being checked on.

Breakfast was poor on Sunday morning. The hotel was very crowded as there were a few girl's softball teams there as well as a group of people from a wedding. But surprisingly, there were many open seats in the breakfast area. We now know why. Upon arriving at breakfast, we were told there was no more coffee. Magically, about 1/2 hour later coffee appeared. It tasted horrible, and someone in our group thought it was decaf placed into the regular brew carafe. The coffee dodn't even turn lighter when creamer was added. Sausage was under cooked, "eggs" over cooked, OJ watered down. Make your own waffles would have been good, but there was no syrup either. I don't choose a hotel based on free breakfast offerings, but aside from the Dannon yogurt, just about everything served was inedible.

Lastly, we had a charge for wine and items from the snack shop placed on our bill at check out. It was quickly reversed, but apparently one can just say they are from a room and have items charged to the tab for that room. No key or ID needed. Not requiring proof of which room is yours prior to charging items from the snack shop is another attention to detail that seems to be lacking.

We truly did enjoy our short stay and would recommend this hotel to stay at. Hopefully the problems we encountered were an irregularity rather than the norm. It is small annoyances like we encountered that can add up over time and give a hotel a poor reputation.

The Bridgewater/Branchburg Residence Inn was great! The staff was polite and helpful.
The room was large, clean and the kitchenette very useful. The complimentary hot breakfast was excellent and varied. The windows in the room opened enough to get fresh air into the room easily. The ability to open a window, even a crack, is something I value in a hotel room. This one scored top points!

My parents, elderly aunt and their pets stayed during mandatory evacuations from the beach during Irene. This place was perfect. Breakfast in the morning, wonderful staff, clean rooms and they kept power for most of the night of the storm. Briefly lost power but backup generator kept lights on in the hallway and manager walked around to make sure everyone was OK and to announced that breakfast was still 'on' in the morning with or without power. I would recommend this place to anyone. Indoor pool kept my neice happy, basketball court in back and even a grill. Room was spacious and clean. Kitchen proved priceless too - shoprite practically across the street. Everything you need.
