Stayed here with two girlfriends for a race in the area. Room was decent (although I did notice dirt behind some furniture.

Nice rooms, clean, the people in the breakfast room very helpful, the breakfast is great but the internet sucks. In four days we didnt have a decent connection not even once. And the front desk guy was lying to our face ("our tech guy is into it", "check now it will be better in a while" etc). If you need...

Good location and very friendly staff! Excellent breakfast to start the day. Lots of amenities even a pool and exercise room! Carpet and some areas need upgrading. Picture a somewhat dated hilton! But at less than half the price! I would go back!

When we attended a family wedding in Princeton- the recommended historical hotel suggested was no match for the value and benefits of this place. Best hot breakfast buffet around. Nice staff. Had a lovely outdoor courtyard to sit and relax in shade

The hotel was very nice, as was the staff. It was convenient to downtown Princeton and not a bad distance from the NJTPK. The breakfast was nicely presented and very good. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Chose this hotel for the location near a business meeting and arrived late so wasn't particular about much. Then I got up the next morning and found the pool was empty, the fitness room had a water dispenser but no cups and the apples at breakfast were nothing close to fresh and probably not even good for applesauce. The carpet...

This was our 2nd visit, happy customers,will return. Good location, Rt 1 just a bit south of Princeton; far enough to have reasonable (low) rates. On Rt 1, but rooms are in back and thus quiet. Clean. Friendly staff; fine breakfast; good value overall. --> Hotel has inner courtyard with flower garden and pool -- very nice ambiance. (ask for...

My wife and I have stayed in plenty of hotels over the years, and we both agreed this was our worst at any hotel. the first room had pet hair everywhere (floor, bed, chair, etc.) and smelled of perfumed cleaner. My wife is allergic, and she immediately began having an allergic reaction. The staff kindly agreed to switch our rooms....

Very friendly front desk staff at check in. Room was clean, except for food being left in mini fridge. A tad noisy at times. Beds were comfy. Smaller tv than what you usually see. Didn't go to the restaurant/lounge as it was a bit pricey for the ratings it received.
