“Reunion weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Our family met for a family reunion in New Jersey, and we all stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The room was clean and spacious. The front desk was helpful about directions, and the breakfast was ample. We especially enjoyed the location of the breakfast, since we could also congregate outside. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: only negative, bar and restaurant closed early on Sat night. (by 10:00)

We had a great room and rate for the night. Spent a relaxing time in the hot tub and pool before retiring for the night. Room was great, comfortable bed and great shower. I liked everything except for the breakfast. Too many carbs!

Through Hotwire got this hotel for just over 70 dollars for daughter's softball tournament. It is very impressive, modern, front desk staff upgraded me to a 2 bed room and the breakfast is free and pretty good. Plus hotel was quiet. Nothing within walking distance but plenty within a mile or two. Oh, very clean too!

I spent only one night with my family before going to Six flags park. We arrived after midnight and were very warm welcomed by Joe Ocana at the front desk. My membership Platinum status was recognized at arrival. The staff is helpful and willing to help. Breakfast is standard Holiday Inn Express, not the best but good enough to start a day. Some fruits besides banana would be appreciated. The rooms are big and the hotel environment is really nice. There is also an laundromat which is helpful in long leisure trips with the family. Unfortunately we realized that too late to use it. In general good experience.

My wife, our two-year old, and I really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room was surprisingly spacious and appeared to be have been remodeled recently. The grounds were well maintained, the free breakfast buffet and free cookies at the front desk were solid, and we all slept well in the comfortable bed. We will definitely look to stay here again if our travels take us to the Princeton area.

Stayed there is past weekend. Hotel is very clean, updated rooms, staff very friendly, nice complimentary bfast. Although located near main roads, this hotel is tucked off in a wooded area which really makes it nice and quite. Will definitely make this my hotel of choice next time in the area. Not your basic generic bland Holiday Express!

Overall good to very good. Rooms were modern and clean. Internet worked well. Pillows were even labeled firm and soft (I liked that). Breakfast was not great, but certainly adequate. The area around the hotel was almost forested, with a lake and a nice dirt road/trail around the property. Only one problem noticed: the main hotel bathroom ran out of TP - couldn't even 'spare a square.'
