“Excellent hotel w/ many amenities”
Reviewed March 8, 2011

Loved this hotel. Spacious rooms, comfy beds & great service. Made to order omeletts for breakfast, along with the other usual suspects. A nice business center with fast internet. The Happy Hour was great - there was no need to go out for dinner afterwards. Beer, wine, cheese, soup, salad w/ grilled chicken, chips & salsa, garlic bread, sodas. We had a problem with our bill (we were overcharged) and it was taken care of immediately and without incident. Oh yeah, and if that isn't enough, they have a $25 gascard deal going on right now. You turn in your room keys at the end of your stay, you get a BP gas card. Awesome. Great value.

I stayed here for a two days trip to New Jersey. This is a hotel in the heart of the city highway on Exit 22. My office was close by. The room was beautiful with all modern amenities and a Kitchenettte. Friendly and service oriented staff. Food was awesome with complimentary breakfast. They also serve complimentary drinks from 5-7 PM. Overall a nice experience and complete value for money.

I stayed here with colleagues in winter so I wasnt able to use all their facilities that was open only during the summer such as the pool and the tennis court.

The hotel offers free shuttle pick up and drop at our office so it was nice to use that facility. The staff could use a little more training on the right way to treat guests. But I didnt have any major complaints.

I would recommend you rent a car during your stay if you're here on long stay. Rooms are large spacious and airy. Although I would have preferred if the colors used in the room were brighter. I thought they were a tad gloomy. Plus, since I was here during the winter, I was restricted to my room some of the weekends and would have preferred if they were brighter. Some suite have a separate living area.. but I had one that had the bedroom and living within the same room. No walk in closet. But I know my colleague was in a bigger suite with a walk-in closet. But again, no complaints.

The rooms are quite large, an attached kitchenette (fully equipped) including refrigerator and microwave. I enjoyed cooking every night here during my stay with an occasional dinner outside with colleagues. The breakfast spread was continental; nothing extraordinary, but ok.

There are coin operated laundry machines. This is a big plus for people who are staying for a longer duration because you dont want to be shelling out unnecessary money on laundry and pressing.

If you strike a good conversation with the people at the reception, they will give you a free shuttle drop at walmart or to the closest train station if the shuttles are operational on weekends. You need to make reservations in advance though.

Sierra suites is also a comfortable stay if you're planning on hosting a wedding in NJ and would like to have your family and guests stay at a hotel.

All in all, the stay was comfortable and good. A very good place for a family vacation.

When I walked into the room I thought it was the nicest hotel room I had ever stayed in. Perhaps that's because it was a suite, but the room was comfortable and so was the separate kitchen and sitting room. Service was also exceptionally nice. The included breakfast on the weekend was pretty good - eggs so so but excellent bagels. My only complaint was the "smart AC." It was a very hot day and my room took too long to get to a comfortable temperature when I got back from the balloon festival. Perhaps because I had checked in right after they finished cleaning the room and it was too cold so I adjusted it. Also, it seemed too warm at night -- I don't think it believed my temperature because, since I was in bed, it didn't know I was "there".

The Hotel Sierra is a beautiful hotel located along Rt 22 in Branchburg, NJ about 5 miles off of 287.. The decor was classy and updated, the rooms were spacious and included full kitchens with dishwasher, microwave and full refrigerator. Beds were very comfortable with the best mattress I've slept on in a hotel. The lobby/ seating area was huge with many chairs and tables. Complimentary breakfast was adequate and well stocked. The fitness room was large for a hotel with many new machines and flat screen tv. The laundry room had 3 washers and 6 dryers, clean and functional. We traveled with our baseball team in August so the bonus was the outdoor pool and hot tub. Pool was very big, clean and warm. There were many tables and chairs, and lounges around the pool. Clean towels were always present. The garden patio was a huge bonus. Many clean patio tables with mesh confortable chairs and unbrellas were a relief from the usual plastic PVC chairs at most hotels. There was a covered gazebo area with 2 huge long banquet tables and patio chairs as well with 2 gas barbeque grills. Also in the outside pool area was a full basketball court and volleyball court. The business center had 4 computers with printers and was open 24 hours.
Right next to the hotel was a driving range with an 18 hole miniture golf course. Shop Right Supermarket right across the road. many chain restaurants and fast food chain up and down Rt 22.

All in all, this hotel was a 5 star rating with adults, kids, and teens. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Since my first stay in 2007 (see review from then) I have had to be back in the area on business at least once per year and each time I try to get into this place. Last time in June 2010 they were full up, so I called the property directly. They were kind enough to put me on the waiting list and took my details. The evening before flying out I got a call to say I had a room! I cancelled the other hotel and was very happy to go back to Sierra!

Since 2007 there have been some improvements, mainly to the breakfast. It was already one of the best included breakfast buffets in the area, with a freshly made egg dish every day (contrary to frozen pre-fab in some places), but since a couple of years they also have a cook to order station for your eggs. Aside from that, a large selection of baked goods, fruit, cereals, cold-cuts, juices, milk and Starbucks coffee!

The evening bistro is also quite interesting: it is not designed as a full meal, but with the choice of salads, cheeses, nachos + dips and one warm snack (menu changes daily, I have had, garlic bread, mini-pizzas, chili, grilled vegs…) you can still have a decent and healthy meal, as long as you do not require meat. Soft drinks from a fountain, 2 beers on tap and red or white wine.

With the large suite or studio style rooms with high quality furnishings, fittings and up-to-date in room technology, good beds, free wired and wifi internet, a decent gym, the relatively quiet location (certainly if room is not facing Rt22), the excellent included breakfast and adequate evening reception, this does remain my preferred hotel in the area.

I see they recently joined the "Stash Hotel Rewards" loyalty program, I have not checked it out yet, but as a not so frequent anymore traveler from outside of the USA and with the limited amount of properties on the program, I guess it would not be very useful for me. I was recognized as a returning guest at this property and possibly because of that I have the impression I did have a higher ranking on the waiting list.

Worked from Hotel Sierra. Noticed a bit of a slow down one morning on wi-fi for 4th floor, but that was for a couple hours and then it was fine.
