Holiday Inn South Plainfield - Piscataway
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Stayed at this place for 1 night on Easter Sunday. Very nice and clean hotel. It is conveniently located off of I-287 and there are several restaurants and stores nearby. The staff were very courteous. Our family enjoyed their complimentary breakfast. It's the best hotel breakfast we ever had!

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. The room was comfortable and the pool was nice as well.

They also have a ping pong table next to the fitness center which was pretty entertaining.

Only issue is that the walls are pretty thin. We could hear people in the other rooms pretty clearly and we ended up receiving a phone call from the front desk telling us that the couple in the next room were complaining that they could hear our conversation as well.....Other than this there were no issues.

You see them all lined up along the highway. They all look the same and all have a national chain name. So which one do you choose?

In this instance, I had a prolonged 2 week stay at this hotel. I'm grateful to have landed here.

In this level of lodging, this was an excellent choice. The rooms are up to date. Large flat screen TV. Good size bathroom with granite counters and a tub. Comfy mattresses and nice linens. Dark wood furniture. Ergonomic desk chair. Ruby Tuesday restaurant attached to the lobby.

However, what makes this hotel a wise choice is the attention to customer service. The front desk staff is kind, patience and accommodating. They are on the ready to help solve and problem, give you a referral for a local restaurant, or even provide a quick fruit in the afternoon. The Hotel is very very clean and beautifully appointed. Full hot breakfast every morning comes free with the room. There is an absolutely wonderful man who runs breakfast service who takes care of his customers with such enthusiasm and passion, just as if they were family. And it's close enough to a wide variety of retail and restaurants.

This is as good as it gets when it comes to local hotels. You won't be disappointed!

We needed to spend one night at a hotel b/c of an early athletic competition at Rutgers Livingston campus. I needed some place clean and reasonably priced that was close to the campus. The Holiday Inn did the trick. The front desk staff were very friendly. The room was nice, clean and updated. For a place to stay, it did the trick. We weren't able to utilize any of the extras (pool, restaurant, etc.) so I can't comment on these. I can say that I would return if I needed a place to stay in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very friendly and courtious, the hotel rooms were recently renovated and very clean and extremely comfortable. We also liked that it was attached to a Ruby Tuesday's which had fantastic food. The breakfast buffet was hot and well stocked each day. I would recommend this to anyone and will definately stay there again!

I got "bumped" here from the Embassy Suites. This is the second time I stayed here in the last year. Although the hotel seems old and needs some TLC, the staff goes out of their way to be helpful (particularly the very pleasant black lady with the auburn wig who works behind the desk and the gentleman who runs the breakfast area - sorry, but I'm no good at names).

Great location - plenty of restaurants nearby. The "hotel" restaurant is a Ruby Tuesday, which is definitely a notch above most hotel food. But there are a considerable number of very good alternatives within a five-minute drive. Additionally, there is a mall right across the street, with a variety of stores, including a Macy's, Walgreen's, etc. Within a 5 minute drive are a Target, Walmart, etc. For convenience to restaurants and stores, this hotel is as good as it gets.

The hotel has an indoor swimming pool and a small gym, with a few treadmills, elliptical machines, etc. I used the gym twice and pretty much had the place to myself. Not the newest equipment, but functional.

Actually, that is a pretty good description of the Holiday Inn - not the newest, but functional. And a good location for Central Jersey.

walked into the hotel in distress having been denied room by my originally booked Hampton Inn which is nearby and after a horrible and racist behaviour by the manager and team there. and the frotn staff anf supervisor - michael and jaffer really were kind and helpful. without their kindness would have spent the night on the streets literally. the timing was bad coming just 3 days after Hurricane Sandy had devastated the area and the hotels ran full as residents moved to hotels since there was no power in their houses. the rooms were good, the service very good. if only there was a compliant it was the breakfast spread being the same everyday but then that was the case with all hotels I stayed in the US during this trip. also if not for the emergency the price of a room night for the location is slightly on the higher side.
