Good location, new clean hotel Lots of food options nearby for pickup and delivery Even a great little “store” for food and drinks

Rooms were nice size and the kitchenette makes extended stays convenientOne of the big pro’s was this hotel is pet friendly We were unsure how that would go, but our cats made themselves at home once they got used to the sounds aroundThe big jewel of the place was the staff It is a difficult time to be in hospitality and everyone was always willing to help with anything I needed Would stay again

Pardhiva Erramilli

Hotel is very clean and new Staff is very courteous and helpful We booked 2 rooms and had a great experience

Since it is like extended stay, room cleaning service will Not be done dailyBut hotel staff do give new towels and soap if we ask them in front desk and thus it is goodBreakfast options are good

Jess —

Rooms are really nice ❤️! Love the setup and beautiful decorum Only critique is no bathtub I didn’t really interact with staff, but everyone seemed pretty chill

Jerseys a very different seen than I am use to so I don’t think I can judge the location fairly although I would have liked it to be in a more open and scenic place Has exercise room so that is always a plus for me 😊!

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any hotel They compare hundreds of booking websites and usually will have rates a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is the best rated in this area

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you decide to stay here you for sure won’t be disappointedRooms are clean and so is the lobby and hotel overall I’ve stayed at a number of hotels in the area and the Heldrich is one of the nicest One of the great things about this hotel is it’s surrounded by a lot of restaurants You can literally walk across the street and be at a number of fine dining restaurants within 40 feet of the hotel doors It simply makes life easier if you are visiting in the area Hotel management is very nice and accommodating as well

Grisel Johnson

We were traveling from out of town and stayed here for a night Room was very big and spacious No complaints except that room service did not come unless I requested a clean

Also I stepped on a pin needle?! I let the cleaning room service know and she saw it her self She plainly said we clean the carpet when we vacuum but we don’t always guarantee that everything comes up! They are so lucky my 5 year old or crawling 11 month old did not get stuck with it…or else there would be a lawsuit pending! Manager was nice to offer us free breakfast but unfortunately our flight was leaving at 3am and couldn’t accept his offer Management was suppose to get back with us about the incident and still haven’t heard back I would not recommend this hotel not very professional at all

Bhaumik Parekh

We had the worst experience staying at this hotel! I would not recommend it to anybody as their staff service is worst than a motel We paid $500 for 2 nights that is way expensive than any 3-4 stars hotel considering that we will also get good service from the staff for the price that we paid but that was not the case We asked for microwave and they told us we will be charged $25 for it, first of all which good hotel charges for microwave

We were ready to pay for it at the end but turned out they did not even have one in their inventory!We asked for extra comforter as I was feeling too cold and their thermostat was also not working to set the temperature, they did not give extra comforter as well We kept waiting but staff did not provide anything The phone was also not working from room so every time for any room service we had to go all the way down ourselvesWorst place to stay , please do not waste your money here as we already wasted ours!

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a resort This website will compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This place is one of the most well known in this area

I’ve been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you for sure won’t regret itThis hotel location was excellent!! You had a Walmart extremely close by two restaurants and the room was absolutely clean and modern!! We had so much space despite sharing a room as a family! It met our needs to sleep shower and go on about our next stop the Statue of Liberty!! If you’re traveling with the family I would definitely recommend this place! My husband was the only person who took advantage of the free breakfast because we were running late but it was all worth it!! If you need to get to the Statue Liberty from Philly stay here you will not regret it!!

I have been staying at Hilton since past 7-8 years and this was the worst experience ever Starting from the check-in – We were not greeted with happy faces at all We had total of 6 rooms for the week so total around like 15-16 nights since i had used points for some rooms and paid for the other

We had a baby shower event nearby and booked the rooms for my guests and my family but they were also utterly disappointed by the overall experience The major concern was the provision of the housekeeping service and bath/hand towels We had to literally beg for towels every few hours since they would not give us the number of towels we requested We could see they have enough towels at the back of the reception but still would not give us that It literally felt like they were discriminating towards my brown skin They would not provide housekeeping the same day even if we asked for it in the morning I have been staying at Hiltons since the beginning of Pandemic but never had such experience anywhere else I had options nearby to book my rooms for the baby shower but chose this since I had previously stayed at this property couple of times They had like 4-5 front desk people sitting doing nothing during the work hours They should instead hire more house keepers I really hope Hilton will take some acceptable action towards the customer service at this particular property

The room was a good size, but the carpet was extremely dirty and sticky They say they steam clean all rooms which have had dogs, can’t possibly believe that’s true The halls and rooms are filled with a foul smell, mildew foul odor

Getting fresh towels, linen, even soap-one has to fill out a form at the front desk, CRAZY! Just to have your room clean one must give a 24 hour notice, and if the front desk forgets to schedule it in their log book, they contradict the customer, saying since it’s not scheduled, no cleaning can be be done until the following day I tried rectifying this by scheduling in advance, cleaning service everyday, I was shocked to be told by the front desk, I wasn’t allowed to schedule my room clean everyday! Don’t bother to ask for cleaning service during the weekends, apparently there isn’t any This Hilton, needs new management, new paint, new room furniture and new carpets The breakfast area is okay, but the floors are extremely sticky And no it’s not just during breakfast time, I walked over around 3 pm for a cup of coffee and everyday the the floor was sticky Bring a pair of sandals, don’t let your babies walk barefoot, the carpets are super super smelly and extremely unhygienic I would say the hotel does have comfortable beds and ONE lady, at the front desk, seems to be the only one who knows how to be professional and tries hard to help guests Other than that, the hotel should not be classified as part of the “Hilton” brand

Laprecious Wright

Hotel was in a perfect location especially for my planned attractions There was an odor outside of the hotel that was sickening but inside was pleasant with a great smell Each floor has selected days that rooms are serviced

Washcloths and towels are not provided daily unless a request is made by noon each day, which is an inconvenience Hotel did run out of towels and washcloths which was also an inconvenience especially to paying guest

Philip McLaughlin

Received phone call from hotel while driving to get there Was told the accessible room I reserved was not available No explanation why

Was given room with 2 dbl beds instead of king size and no walk-in shower Wife has had both knees replaced and has trouble getting into tub even with grab bars Breakfast was so-so, eggs with peppers (don’t like peppers) No fresh cut fruit the 2nd day No waffle maker One elevator out of order leaving only one elevator for entire building (3 floors) Only 2 staircases for building AC worked very well

Benita Cohen

Earlier reviews had me wondering if we would find anything but the regular consistency we enjoy at Courtyards This Courtyard may have been better than the ones we’d been to before The layout of the room was different and created a more comfortable and relaxing atmosphere

The room was clean and the water pressure in the shower was terrific So many hotel pillows are so airy that they collapse as soon as I put my head on them — these had substance but were not overly firm

Chelsea Davis

Very poor customer service I provided my information with all details via email and phone call and received back the room block contract with multiple spelling and date errors The code didn’t work multiple times and I had to reach out for corrections

I should have known at that point that there would be more issues I secured a block of rooms for my wedding over a year out A couple months or so prior to the wedding I received a call stating that the hotel was closing for renovations and that they were unable to accommodate my group Luckily, I was able to stay at a brand new Hampton Inn just minutes away instead I do not recommend this hotel

Brittany Doria

Well so far – they couldn’t honor early check in what so ever Couldn’t honor AAA card before BEFORE we even checked in Room wasn’t as clean as you’d think a hotel would be (still toothpaste in sink- we haven’t even brought in luggage yet)

don’t know the area or anywhere else to stay – so unfortunately we are stuck Highway is very loud- could be soothing to some people I’d look for better rated hotel honestly next time DisappointedNotice the replies back from management from the 5 star reviews compared to the way they handle poor ratings (oh your stay wasn’t well- sorry- do come back tho! 😂 yikes

Sorry to say this hotel is declining in quality, though still preferred over other area hotels The rooms are nice and clean, but no longer well appointed and are run down No extra blanket, hotel menus are not in the rooms, room service is pleasant but you’ll eat with plastic utensils and food in aluminum containers

The breakfasts are great, buffet style, and will cost at least twenty dollars, but worth it Don’t look for a TV guide to channels, it’s not there In general, one expects better quality from a Hilton

Merde Mail

Average Lobby is lovely, restaurant is good Breakfast is a little pricey

Room was starting to show its age: poor caulking, carpet was dirty, and the shower faucet was dangerously close to falling offFront desk staff was mostly pleasant One female was rude and unpleasant Was purchasing snacks & drinks and she acted very inconvenienced by my presence, said very little, couldn’t even be bothered to tell me I was all set Left me standing there awkwardly until I finally had to ask, “Am I good to go?” I got a curt yes in replyParking spaces are very tight

Nicholas Lippa

The lobby and facilities were very pleasant and well kept but the rooms appeared to be severely lacking Furniture in our room was heavily blemished with gouges out of wood surfaces and hazed over windows from lack of exterior cleaning The vent in the bathroom appeared to have not been working for an extremely long time as the light fixtures in the bathroom showed signs of rust and pitting

All of this combined with what at this point felt like a somewhat outdated room for a premium price coupled with the lack of even a complimentary breakfast left a rather sour experience overall as it wasn’t necessarily bad but felt more akin to a run of the mill motel rather than a brand that is supposed to carry some type of prestige such as the Hilton

Great Service Very spacious and nicely appointed I brought the kids here mainly for the indoor pool so they can go whether rain or shine

There was plenty of parking behind the building near the indoor pool, so there is no need to compete with anyone Has EV charging too for those of you that run on batteriesThe restaurant downstairs has fair prices, which is competitive against the need to drive out and eatWhile we gave it 5 stars anyway, I just wanted to note that the photo of the indoor pool is a bit misleading The pool is a little smaller in real life, but it is still roomy and not too crowded when we went

Rob Jelinski

Beautiful hotel that sits on the Connell business park now renamed The Park Like all Embassy Suites each room offers sofa/ kitchen area and the bedroom area These are spacious and nicely decorated for the price point

Included in the stay are a free breakfast buffet (oatmeal, fresh fruit, bagels, coffee, etc and an omelette station) which are good and quality does vary of some offerings based on the time you eat They also give a complimentary drink for each adult per/ night of your stay This is a nice touch and you can upcharge if you’d like top shelf brandsLots of common areas for working which is the top priority here for most guests There is also a full Starbucks on site and a great reading area in front of the shop See my Grain & Cane review for notes on the on-site restaurant which is 👌🏼 tooThe pool area could use a little love, but all in all the Staff was very courteous, the property was very clean, and all in all I would highly recommend it!

Kylie L

The room was dirty upon check in, there was like white substance all over the bed shams and all over the doors and all over the floor, there was also a sticky substance seeping out of the refrigerator the room smelled like they were covering up maybe pet odor The scent from the vents was very overwhelming like a deodorizer

The lamp was broken and hanging sideways There was no happy medium with the air conditioner, it blew right on us all night and there were no abilities to set the vents in an opposite way away from the beds the breakfast stations were jampacked nowhere to sit young kids touching all the food with their hands, and the lines wrapped around the tables for fresh omelets, which led us to get breakfast at Starbucks Maybe it was a wedding weekend? The hotel should alert guests when something like this is occurring, We weren’t able to use the pool, there were so many kids in it and it was a very small 3ft pool, and we chose this location specifically for the pool Very unhappy We even came late like 8 pm And check-in was at 3, we told them we would be late so they had an ample amount of time to clean the hotel room , the daybed cushions were not even put in correctly the zipper seam was facing out The hotel has such potential

Christine Game

Let me start off by saying I am a fan at staying at this embassy suites location because almost always I am greeted by welcoming faces all around, but Friday was very differentAfter a long day I wanted to grab a meal at the restaurant in the hotel, the server Danny was extremely helpful with the menu, and overall was great as she tackled table after table I did notice the chef was very rude to her and another gentleman

While I was eating I heard some things fall, and seen the person in the kitchen throwing pans It was a concerning sight because the energy from her was felt throughout the entire restaurantOverall I love the embassy suites, and I do enjoy the service but this was one of the first days I did not finish my meal It was very undercooked, and too greasy for my liking I’m hoping for some improvements moving forward because usually the restaurant is one of the best parts of staying at this hotelI do give credit to the server that was working, she is one reason I am still willing to give this hotel/restaurant one more chance

Hugh W

The staff at this location is super nice, friendly, helpful and professional The overall perception of the employees, everyone works as a team making this Hotel the place to stay The lobby is very spacious, the complimentary breakfast is on point, the rooms are a decent size for a family of five and lots of outdoor parking spaces

I recommend and definitely will stay here again

Absolutely excellent hotel! Staff is so kind and friendly and the rooms are very spacious, clean, and welcoming The staff helped us with anything we needed making sure we were well looked after I enjoyed the beautiful indoor pool that was so relaxing

There is a target store in the same parking lot as the hotel so if you need groceries or any last minute shopping you can do so easily I look forward to staying here again

Kelly A

This hotel was a immaculate I love staying here I am from that area this place was newly built about 8 months ago It’s in the same parking lot as Target and across the street from Menlo Park Mall so that is great My room was exceptional I had a double Queen suite

So there was two different rooms with a door that closed for the little living area where you had a sleeper sofa a chair a television then there was a kitchenette with a small table and chairs a refrigerator a dishwasher microwave and a two burner glass stove top They provided you with dishes and silverware as well as dishwasher cleaner My bed was so comfortable and that was in a separate room when you walk it through the living area you open the door and there were the two big beds the bathroom was really nice overall I give this place five stars They have a pool they do serve breakfast the staff there is amazing they want to do whatever they can to make you happy and answer any questions or be helpful in any way at all They do have a basketball court in the back as well as two sitting and lounging areas outside with beautifully done gas fire pits It was gorgeous and relaxing and I’m extremely satisfied with all of their service And it’s right down the road from route 1 that takes you everywhere and anywhere you want to go but it is extremely busy that highway besides that the place was amazing the location was great and I definitely will be coming back They also have a really large parking lot and they have two charging stations for your electric vehicles so that was convenient as well

Beautiful newer hotel Super clean and stocked rooms Every staff I ran into, from the front desk to the breakfast staff were very friendly

Pool was refreshing and weight room has lots of options (dumbells, cardio, kettle bells, cable machine, etc) Side plus, 2 minute walk from Target and Starbucks(inside Target) One of the best stays at a hotel!

Nice clean spacious rooms in a great location, the gym is well equipped as well There wasn’t a microwave, or fridge in the rooms which is a negative but doable seeing as the hotel also has a stocked bar that serves great food The reason for the 3 star review is a private event rented out the bar and kicked all paying hotel guests out, highly inconvenient and will affect my choices and recommendation in the future

Update: The bartender’s servers and other employees that I had the pleasure of interacting with deserve 5 stars, they are amazing people that are doing a fantastic job (even the bartender that said we could not be served because of the private event, he was fantastic the following night no hard feelings he was just doing what he was told) The place in general is 4 stars The rating is strictly off of general upkeep, there are a few blemishes that could use some professional touches to ensure the maintenance personnel are able to keep up a 5 star appearance

Kimberly Bean

Great location… an easy commute to the city I like being outside of the hustle and bustle, noise, crime, and grit of NYC The hotel itself isa five minute walk to the train

The room are spacious and clean Whenever I call for service, they send someone right away Friday & Saturday night jazz in the cafe is an outstanding bonus I am very happy I chose this place

Humaira Kazmi

Stay away from this hotel This rooms were dirty, bathrooms were not clean, furniture was old and dinged Service was horrible

We got in at 11 am at night and there were 2 couples before us waiting for their room They were told that they couldn’t find their reservation Those poor people showed them that they booked thru Hilton Instead of talking to these people and apologizing that they double booked, the front desk called cops Long story short, same thing happened to us They couldn’t find our reservation and had double booked and gave our rooms to someone else, even though we are Hilton honor members and booked through Hilton website After an hour and a half, they gave us a room with a King ( we had reserved a queen- 2 adults and 2 kids) The room was dirty The floor was not clean Front desk had to go down and get us towels The bathroom was dirty as well and there was a half used shower gel left in the shower stallWe could not sleep at all as this room faced the garage and had unloading loading noises all throughout the night and early morning After talking to the front desk, they finally shifted to a room with two queens and gave us free breakfast, the next day which was niceThe room that they switched us to was clean but of course the furniture was old and had scratches and dings on it The front desk manager was nice told us that we wont be charged for that night as a courtesy and she apologized However, they charged us for NO SHOW for the first nightThis hotel has lot of problems Younger lady at front desk was very rude did not apologize They have horrible serviceIf they are negative ratings, I would give them a negative 10 Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this hotel The only good thing about this hotel was eclectic decor

We are very disappointed in this property, honestly they should loose their Hyatt Regency name We checked in for two nights for a local wedding, the sheets on our king size bed had stains and hairs in it When we asked for our sheets to be changed, the night manager felt like she was accusing us, questioning when we checked in and why we didn’t noticed it earlier

I had to explain to her we just pulled the sheets back prior to going to bed but the fact I had to justify myself was frustrating We didn’t ask for any special accommodations, we just asked for new sheets They then explained how housekeeping is closed and they had to find someone to change the sheets Additionally, all the furniture had stains and dust on it, we had to put towels and clean sheets down to feel comfortable even sitting on it Looks like they owners recently renovated the lobby but decided to keep the rooms looking like they’re from the 1980s The hotel rooms are in rough shape, show their age, and unsanitary I wouldn’t recommend staying here, there are much better options locally for the same priceThe only good thing about the hotel is that the front desk and bar staff were kind But the rooms at this hotel are well below the Hyatt Regency standard

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay They compare thousands of hotel sites and usually will have rooms much cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This resort is one of the best in this area

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you choose this place you definitely will love it I’m sure!Only one night, but it was very enjoyable No hassle check in Clean room with super comfy bed Great venue for our business meeting Catering was excellent Would go there again

Excellent Super-clean room, not noisy except for a small amount of noise from traffic outside, kind staff at check-in Pool very nice, jacuzzi quite spacious and definitely hot enough to relax but a tad bit hotter would be even better

Hours of pool and jacuzzi were great Nice that they put the on/off button for the jacuzzi jets inside the jacuzzi itself Yes, there is a parking fee but it is fair Great job

The worst guest service I have ever encountered in my life My family had just experienced an electrical fire in our home so we had to make a last minute reservation here My father, who booked the reservation, stayed behind to speak with the first responders and our now traumatized dog

We arrive to an extremely rude concierge refusing to allow us in, demanding that my father arrive to present ID After explaining our dire situation to them, we were met with shrugs and complete and utter disregard They did not offer any solution except for us to call corporate or have my father show up We were forced to look for somewhere else to stay- it’s pouring outside and late Beyond dissatisfactory- the staff clearly needs retraining I’ll never forget how they treated me and my family in a time of need A shame

So let’s start off this review with the front desk Some of them are friendly and a great help and some need training againNow lets go to breakfast

I really wish they had better breakfast The oatmeal is watery Coffee taste like it is old and they never wash the coffee machine The tables were dirty The dishes looked like they were ran through just hot water and no soap I was very disappointed with the breakfastNow let’s talk about the pool place There are towels everywhere As a guest you should pick up your towel and put it in the basket but for the guest who are to good for that the housekeeping will not bother picking them up I saw the same towel there for days! When you ask for towels for the pool they will give you the white towels There is this machine that is there and covered up you can see the rust on it and its grossThe pool itself is dirty They might clean the pool after weeks While i was swimming in the pool i looked down and there was a bunch of hair in thereThe water looked murkie That is how you know the pool is not clean The windows in the pool area are dirty Around the pool looks like no one cares to clean it You can see the smudges all over the windows It looks really bad! The hot tub has been out of order for a hot minute now Another annoying thing i came across is that they were swimming lessons going on I did not know that guest have to deal with swimming classes I think that is very unprofessional and very uncomfortableNow about the rooms They are a good size rooms it’s just that they smell dingy Thinking it is just me i wanted to give them the benefit of doubt Friday Housekeeping came and let me tell you how i was shocked with their cleaning They will not wipe the nightstands The headboard you can see marks on there as well I left some stuff there and when i came back it was still there The linen does not smell clean at all Nothing they put out smells clean or washed It has a very dingy smell The bathroom mirrors you can see the smudges and toothpaste marks The wall to the side of the mirror you can see toothpaste marks there as well The shower area the only thing they do in the tub is rinse it with water There was hair along side the walls on the toilet seat and if you looked close enough there was hair behind the bathroom door alongside the walls Now the kitchen They do not wipe down the counters at all The dishes in the dishwater are only run through water When we came back and went to use the dishes there was food marks still on there the glass and spoons had marks on them as well I then had to put dish detergent in the dishwasher and run it again The hallways smelly dingy as well It is like they never clean the carpets THE PRODUCTS THEY USE IF THEY USE ANY ARE CHEAP AND NASTY THEY NEED TO RETRAIN OR HIRE NEW CLEANING PEOPLE There are a few nice cleaning people but majority of them need to learn how to talk to guest and not make them feel uncomfortableThe guest who stay here regardless them being long term or short term pay money to stay here The management does not use good cleaning products or the right equipment to clean Cleaning also does not happen everyday day I think it is twice a week When you take money from us for staying there everyday you should have them clean the rooms everyday as wellI know Marriott is a very well know name I have stayed at many around the world I would say that the hotels in third world countries are way cleaner than the one here in Woodbridge NJ Would i recommend anyone to stay here no never Management really needs to step up their game in cleaning the place

The two women who checked me in for my stay were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful!!I did have an issue the second morning of my stay I was rudely awakened by a woman who seemed to be management knocking on my door I open the door to chat with this woman, and she explained that my card on file declined for the charges

Understandable that this is a concern for the property, however instead of taking a gentle, friendly approach – which should be used toward guests (especially who you just woke up) she decided to tell me that payment is due now and ‘normally in these situations police would be called in 30 minutes” TMI and offensive in my opinion As a titanium elite member, I really did not appreciate the insinuation that I could not afford to pay, or the approach this woman took with addressing the issue at hand I went straight to the front desk and completed my payment The issue was a simple lock that I had placed on my cardThe room I was in was very spacious and the layout was excellent However the furniture arrangement was arkward and uncomfortable, so I took it upon myself to rearrange the suite to a more comfortable layout (as shown in images) Several things were broken / not functioning properly, all of which were easy fixes that I personally addressed

Beautiful hotel Everything I needed in my room, cozy bed, and very clean There is a bar on site, but I didn’t use it

The less than exceptional reading is because the hotel is located right next to the highway The roar of traffic, sirens, loud motorcycles, and 18 wheelers on their jake brakes, plus trash pick up at 4 AM, made for a less than great stay I recommend staying here, but if you’re not used to the NJ noise, choose an odd numbered room for the quietest side of the building

I shared this experience with my soon to be hubby I enjoyed our stay there It was just as amazing as it was when we were there three months ago

I love it The whirlpool is amazing I feel so relaxed when I get out I must say the make to order breakfast is through the roof The breakfast is absolutely delicious Thank u for our incredible stay The staff is very accommodating to our needs

Purusha Jackson-Cox

Enjoyed my brief stay at this hotel Parking was no problem and location was just off major parkway for easy access to I-95 For us, we were just where we needed to be to get to Iselin and Monroe Twp,quickly

Hotel had large rooms, hot fresh breakfast, bar and dining area ,pool and fitness room Great value for the price The only thing I did not like was you were given a coupon for breakfast Not sure why, but once you handed it in I guess you could not go back for seconds My kids all eat at different times so this was just a bit annoying but not a big problem Vending machines and ice machines were on our floor, which was the 4th floor Snacks and drinks were also for sale, near check in

I can not say enough nice things about this location Clean, easy to get to, breakfast was tasty, bartender made a good drink They have a nice patio area, but know it doesn’t officially open until the bar opens

The front desk clerks were nice, the market was well stocked and if You need it, they have it If I’m in the area again, I would definitely stay there again

Shane Barber

I believe this was the warmest welcome I have ever received when checking into a hotel Whether here in the states, abroad, or even at a luxury resort The difference is those hotels did not have Jermaine and Golda like the little Hilton Hotel on Route 22 West in Springfield

Jermaine is so warm, personable, friendly, and caring He made me feel like an honored guest in his home for the weekend Golda was very attentive, patient with requests, has a million-dollar smile and just displayed uncommon hospitality and guest service Her positive energy was contagious This hotel has a dynamic duo at the front desk Both represent the Hilton Brand Image and Core Values Thank You Jermaine and Golda!!! If I ever need hotel services in Union County area you both made Hilton Garden Inn of Springfield the obvious choice!Respectfully,Shane Barber

Martin Griggs

Very nice hotel Clean rooms Good breakfast

Just like so many other Hiltons they are getting cheaper, and cheaper As a diamond member I spend thousands and thousands with Hilton When I ask for a couple $025 bottles of water to go in the morning about half just give it to me Usually outside of town Inside cities where younger people work the counter, they say you have to pay their full price for it How stupid I will just go around the corner to a gas station or store if they are going to be that way

We enjoyed our stay here My family stayed in the 2 queen suite with pullout couch The beds were comfortable

Shower pressure was strong The breakfast was okay They had a variety to choose from each morning There was always coffee in the lobby as well We stayed here to visit NYC, which was about 30 min with traffic to the Staten Island ferry Which I highly recommend My youngest daughter enjoyed the pool as well Water temps were comfortable… the hot tub could have been a little warmer To access the pool and fitness area you need to have the front desk personnel key you in, which u thought was weirdThey do not provide bedding for the pullout couch so u need to call down for that but they are prompt once called The road it’s on is quite busy but I honestly didn’t hear any traffic until late morning I would stay here again

I used to think of Holiday Inn Expresses as no-frills but pleasant stays Not anymore The room reeked of mold and mildew with damp carpet and blankets

I tried desperately to sleep and woke up at 4 AM unable to sleep anymore because of the moldy smell, finding mold on the window I could feel the cells of disease growing in my body because of the mold On the positive side, the breakfast was good, the room was clean except for the mold, and the check-in woman was nice The breakfast area was extremely hot and unpleasant, however The jacuzzi in the pool area was too cold and had an unbearable amount of chlorine that stung my eyes I can see from the other reviews the hotel staff lie in response to that allegation and state some part of the pool is broken – clearly not true A horrible place to which I vow to never return and couldn’t wait to come home to advise others to steer clear – unless you love breathing mold through your nose and mouth all night

This place was horrible! By far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! Our “suite” smelled of old cigarettes and fresh marijuana There were children screaming and running up and down the halls until after 1:30am When I checked out at 4am to catch a flight, there was were suspicion dealing going on out of the front of the hotel

Do not stay here!!! My in-laws stayed at the comfort inn and had a very nice night, I suggest that as a much better option!
