Guest reviews

  • Single

    Courteous concierge staff. Outdoor pool. Cable includes Comedy Central. Short walk to Princetonian Diner.

    Pool could use a bit of cleaning.

  • Single

    Excellent breakfast, complementary WSJ

  • Single

    Convenience to Bristol-Myers facility for my business meeting. Staff were quite helpful. And pricing was good.

    Free breakfast was limited; either upgrade or eliminate.

  • Single

    The girl at the front desk was cute.

    The computer at the front desk was terribly slow and it took me about 25 mins to check in. Very frustrating.

  • Single

    I slept well once I figured out how to turn on the air conditioner.

    There were no directions for getting the air conditioner working. The chair at the desk was very soiled. I did not feel I could sit on it. The hotel was hot. It did not seem to have air conditioning on at all. The breakfast was not well stocked. When I went down for breakfast there was only a spoonful of eggs and they were cold. It was difficult to get to the hotel if you were coming from the other side of the road. I did not see directions for my room. I had to walk all around to find it.

  • Single

    The business center at no charge for print outs

    Dirty room, beds towels . Dark interior, old hotel facility in general.

  • Family with children

    The staff from the dining area is extremly rude , if the lady is there better not to go to have breakfast

  • Single

    Bed and bathroom

    I paid cash for my room (confirmed by staff one week later), but my cc still had a hold on the amount one week later....please resolve.

  • Single
    9.6 nunca envio mi reserva al hotel, cuando yo llame al hotel, el dia anterior, para saber como llegar, me indiaron que mi reserva no existia! Por parte de fatal!!!

  • Group of friends

    The location was great.

    Not the rooms I ordered, and the desk clerk played dumb and tried to give me another room, but still not the ones I ordered on In the end, I did get four out of five of the correct rooms and the other was a nice room, but not what I had reserved.

  • Family with children

    Convenient to university and low cost. Pleasantly surprised at quality

  • Older travelers

    Daniel was excellent at the registration desk, and the housekeeping staff did a good job. The location was close to shopping, dining and a movie theater.

  • Single

    It was a fair room. It has refrigerator and microwaves. You have a big supermarket around the corner. The breakfast is included although a bit poor.

    Location. If you don't have a car in here you are screwed as usually on the us. There is a Princeton University operated bus (TigerTransit, west- line) which stops quite close to the hotel and leaves you at the dinky station (10 min walk to Nassau St. The main street at Princeton) but it only stops there at 30 min. Intervals.

  • Single

    Very nice personnel, quiet and clean rooms, very low rates. Strongly recommended if the location is not that important to you.

  • Family with children

    Our room had no window to the exterior and was extreemely stuffy and smelly. Breakfast was almost non existant. Even though the rate was cheep it was still not very good value for the money.
