Spacious, clean and quiet rooms with comfortable bedding Otherwise, the facilities lack considerably As is the norm post-Covid, services are reduced to the bare minimum, while maintaining or increasing prices to offset the effects of the pandemic

Don’t expect restaurant/bar service, housekeeping or room service The gym was clean and well equipped, the indoor pool was heated to 50F too cold to spend more than 15 minutes in it

I would give them 10 stars if I could We arrived at 2:30 in the morning and we were treated like royalty The gentleman who checked us in was so polite and very helpful

The hotel is gorgeous it’s pictures do not do it justice, the atrium is so relaxing with water fall and coy fish The room was nice and warm for our arrival, it was very clean and comfortable, the best 4 nights sleep in a hotel ever I would highly recommend this place and can’t wait to go backAbigail Boyko, Mar 17-21, 2022

A solid hotel experience that fits directly into the Hyatt Regency brand pretty well The hotel is attached to the Carnegie Center and well located on US Route 1 Very easy to get to from my home in Philadelphia

Arrival and check in was really easy Parking is free, but uncovered Hotel had three weddings going on simultaneously and one of them was exceptionally large Not that the groups were loud or noisy, just not what I was expecting when I entered the property I was upgraded to the largest King bedroom available and it had plenty of space for my family, two year old toddler included Room was spacious and it felt recently updated The restaurant has a full dinner and breakfast service The dinner was really good but a bit pricy The breakfast was free to me as I have Hyatt status Breakfast was either an entree or a full buffet After breakfast, my son enjoyed the indoor pool which was really well covered from the massive amount of rain All in all this location made for a great staycation for our family and I will make sure to come back!

I planned a large group trip for a weekend tennis tournament at Princeton University Right off the bat we had some issues with our payment method and the front desk staff were extremely helpful The rooms were nice and clean, which is all I ever really ask for in a hotel

We also realized (while playing some music) that the rooms were almost completely soundproof which is a really nice touch The bar stayed open late and the staff there were really nice too The real highlight of this hotel I feel is the grounds though! We enjoyed 2 nights of lovely nighttime walks on the trails around the hotel (which were even decorated for Halloween!) Overall it was a wonderful stay and when we come back next year for the same tournament we hope to return

Ashley Lester

If I could give this hotel more than 5 stars, I would I’ve stayed in this hotel many times over the past 2 years Sadly, I misplaced my favorite and only pair of seeing glasses in this hotel last summer

Even worse, the package became lost in the mail and never arrived to me The amazing house keeping staff, front desk staff, front desk manager, and general manager all put in their absolute best efforts to help find my glasses, but unfortunately they became lost mail Although the situation was completely out of their hands and they were not at fault, they did not stop there The hotel helped me purchase new glasses to replaced my lost ones I have never experienced better customer service If you are comparing other hotels to this one, do not bother just stay here! Wonderful customer service, clean rooms, amazing stay!

Michael Ed

Booked the Holiday Inn but was Re-routed to the CrowneI have no idea how this hotel is getting away with allowing people to book the neighboring Holiday Inn but then re-routing guests to the Crowne Plaza WITHOUT notifying guests until they see the sign in the window I find this practice deceptive and unprofessional I also find it despicable that IHG allows this practice to continue along with charging guests different rates

If a guest wanted to book the Holiday Inn but was re-routed to the Crowne Plaza why aren’t the rates the same??? I am thoroughly disappointed with IHG Corporate’s oversightIn terms of the hotel itself, it needs a good vacuuming and the bathroom area could have been cleaner as there were hairs in the shower and sink The sheets were super scratchy and uncomfortable There were a number of white stains above the bed and on the couch that made staying there feel icky The A/C worked great! The TV was slow to respond to commands but offered a lot of channelsFinal note I was not thanked for being an Ambassador and Platinum Elite

Benjamin Kalish

We enjoyed this hotel Parking is convenient and free There are services right next door to include restaurants and a shopping center, and it is right off of a major highway

I strongly recommend making the trek to grounds for sculpture which is a 15 minute driveThe biggest detractor for this hotel was the breakfast While the spread was good, the seating was extremely limited given the population of the hotel

Rebecca Davis

We were here for 3 nights The pool was nice The gym is limited, but enough in there for you to get your vacation workout on

The staff was very kind and helpful The room was large and definitely worth the cost There was real bedding and a whole pull-out couch The only thing missing was a microwave It was in walking distance of Marketfair shopping mall where there’s plenty of restaurants The breakfast was simple but with good variety They had oatmeal with so many options of fixin’s We really enjoyed our stay

Alfredo DeLosReyes

I stayed at this hotel while helping my son move back to the Princeton campus because of the convenient location to the Lawrence Drive student housing location and its close proximity to several restaurants The only complaint I have is the room service I requested after Day 2 of a 4-day stay Housekeeping only added some hand towels and never picked up the used towels nor replenished the toiletries and toilet tissue

This hotel is conveniently located in a intersection of I 195 Hotel rooms were nice and clean Hotel personnel were courteous and helpful

Complimentary breakfast was good However, I would prefer if more food choices were available Also, if the hotel can have a restaurant for other meals (lunch/dinner) then it will be more convenient for people who does not have time to cook in the kitchen provided with room Room cleaning service also need improvement Although you can get fresh towels whenever you want Room service need to be required in advance Personally, I prefer to get my room cleaned everyday which unfortunately I didn’t receive due to the policy!! Everything else was good I enjoyed my time of stay in the hotel

Al Arment

We just stayed 2 nights here and it was one of the BEST hotels we’ve stayed at The only issue we had was being able to operate the room temperature but this place still deserves a FULL “5 STAR” rating The Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful

the room itself was very spacious with a full kitchen and was very clean on our arrival They have a heated pool which is kept clean and an excellent staff that prepares awesome breakfast meals in the morning who are very pleasant as well They have a guest laundry room with a working washer and dryer (a little loud, but in working condition) in my opinion, this place hit all of our expectations and deserves all 5 stars and if we decide to travel back there from Massachusetts, we will be calling Homewood Suites for our reservationsExcellent Job people, and “Thank You” for a great time!Al & Pam Arment (Rm 307)

Kelly D.

Recently stayed here for a weekend to attend a wedding The rooms are great, very spacious and clean The location was close to where we needed to be and it has a lot of nice amenities

It’s also close to a shopping center with retail stores and some chain restaurants The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the complimentary breakfast was not good The eggs were gross, there were grounds in the coffee when I poured a cup, and the yogurt wasn’t cold Highly recommend the accommodations minus the breakfast

We booked our wedding hotel block with Residence Inn by Marriott Hamilton and everything went smoothly They accommodated our guests, when possible, with early check in and addressed any issues we had The rooms are modern and comfortable, and the breakfast had a good enough selection for our guests in the morning

Thank you for your hospitality!

Erica McCormick

I stayed at the Residence Inn for 6 months and I have to say, the staff was amazing Thank you especially to the breakfast crew of Dan and Stacey I would frequently wake up to the smell of fresh baked scones

Dan was a wonderful cook and all the staff was so friendly Housekeeping always said hi to me in the hall and stopped by frequently Thank you again for making the hotel my “home”

Erica S. Russomanno

We stayed here for a wedding on August 5th We were running late so we checked in and ran upstairs too change quickly As I was doing my makeup in the full length mirror out of the corner of my eye I see something

A pair of dirty, balled up cheetah print underwear To make matters worse the mirror had all these mouth/lip marks We had zero time to switch rooms so I went to the front desk to notify them They were very apologetic and the Manager Joseph asked what time we would be back I told him we really didn’t know but he assured us he would rectify this and he would be there until 11PMWe returned around 1130, he was gone for the night There were no notes or anything left on our room and we now had to explain the entire situation again We were quite exhausted from celebrating and the from the extreme heat during the day We just wanted to switch rooms and go to bed The woman was rather new at the desk and had to call him to figure out how to switch our room Now it’s well past midnight, we have to go upstairs, pack up everything and move to another room My husband waited upstairs while I went back down to get the new key Both women at the front desk assured us that they would comp our room in the morningThe next morning at check out the front desk knew nothing about the ordeal I now had to repeat the story a 3rd time The Housekeeping Manager was there and asked to see photos because she didn’t believe me I gladly let her see She kept repeating to me how she had record the room was cleaned Okay great These were not my underwear and I am definitely not kissing mirrors while a pandemic is still very much active Once again, the woman at the desk had to call the Manager Joseph because she knew nothing about this She was very nice and apologetic I said, the women last night said our room would be comped Apparently Joseph said no, he would only give us half off He offered nothing else and said something to imply the women last night were new and they shouldn’t of said the room would be comped We left because I wasn’t arguing anymore, especially with someone on the phone My husband has stayed in Marriotts in every state He works for Food Network and travels the country We even stayed at the Westin in Maui for our honeymoon We have never experienced a dirty room or such ill customer service Ladies, you were excellent Thank you for trying to help us Joseph, all you had to do was leave a note and this wouldn’t have turned into such a ridiculous ordeal

Place and location awesome Cleanliness a 10 outta 10 They even have beer to purchase in the lobby! The breakfast could use some improvements

Hard boiled eggs? Why? Every place has scrambled usually The waffle was good The bacon slightly under cooked Had to go grab something somewhere elseUpdate: i would def stay there again !

We stayed on Saturday 7/16 and woke up to this roach in our bedding, it appeared dead at first but was very much alive Management was non-responsive to my initial email and even seemed annoyed and inconvenienced in their response to me following up on not having heard back from them on what I would consider a important issueThe room was indeed nice and the rate we paid decent, but my disappointment is in Managements handling of the issues

Robert Sweeting

I’ve stayed here three times in the past month First two times, no issues My last visit on 3/31 was a nightmare

First – I pulled up to check in around 830pm There was a large family (not sure if they were there for a wedding or a different occasion) who had all of their cars blocking the main entrance and both sides of the road to pull up to the main entrance I’m talking 10-15 cars When I tried to get by they just sat there and refused to move until I said something Check in process was smooth minus the gentleman that was in the back office awkwardly staring me down My other concerns were the room It was a rather warm night and the room cooling and heating unit was showing 75 degrees There is a panel on the wall to control the central air but it apparently was broken because there were no lights or numbers showing up The standalone unit out of the window I tried to reduce the temperature and put it into cool mode but it would just turn off as if the cooling function did not work Could only put it into fan or heat mode Needless to say it was extremely warm in the room the entire night I was Probably better off sleeping in my car for the night Lastly, the shower head in this room, room 242 had a ton of calcium and deposit build up that was noticeably visible, which seemed to impact the pressure of the water and the water turned all the way up, still did not feel too warmLike I said First two visits – no issues Most recent visit – NIGHTMARE

I’m always hesitant to stay at an “INN” because of the reputation they carry but this hotel exceeded my expectations! Our room was very clean and spacious we got the double bed queen suite with a pull out sofa it was plenty of us and there was still plenty of space!The first shift staff was extremely accommodating and friendly!The breakfast buffet has a little bit of something for everyone seriously and they keep it fully stocked so don’t worry about getting down there late there will be food still!The pool was clean and a decent size! They have a basketball hoop for the kids with balls to keep them entertained to say the leastThere’s a cute outdoor patio right outside the pool for you smokers who may need a break there’s even lights for nighttimeThe bathrooms were clean

They have small things like tooth brush tooth paste mouth wash etc if you forget yours like me every time!9/10 — The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars or a 10/10 is because they had no pool towels or room towels available for my whole Saturday stay, and when they did have towels available it was never enough

Robert Miranda

My family came to this hotel for a recent vacation trip to New Jersey from Chicago We loved our room because it was large and the ceilings was tall They offered some awesome free breakfast and the staff kept the place clean even during breakfast

We loved the pool and the workout room option We will definitely come here again It was nice that this hotel was right off the New Jersey turnpike to get around

Paul Corban

It is a pleasure to see Customer Service and dedication to Customer Satisfaction, to well above and beyond the call of duty from all Staff members From Odessa at the front desk who, at the request of my Girlfriend back home, bundled some tea for me with a note from my Girlfriend and had it as a surprise for me when I entered my room that night after a hard days work, to Kelly in the kitchen preparing awesome breakfasts and coffee for us as we start our day every morning! Pricilla at the from desk was very pleasant and helpful for all requests, and I did interact with two other ladies at the front desk whose names I do not recall, but they also we very pleasant and helpful to me as well The manager, whose name also escapes me at the moment, was very accommodating with my room upgrade request and made my job a lot easier for my lengthy stay there

Thank You All for helping me spend a very comfortable and very pleasant stay at your Hotel! Keep Up The Good Work!

We stayed recently for a medical appointment and we were very happy with our stay Check in was a breeze with friendly staff The room was larger than expected and had an included mini fridge and microwave

I liked the sitting room being separate from the beds and how comfortable the couch was The beds were just right and I had a great night’s sleep The pool is indoor which is wonderful to be able to use it year round It’s not heated so it can be chilly but the kid didn’t care much and gladly swam for an hour Will definitely stay here again

Alan M

Very clean with everything functional Hard to believe it at a Marriott you have to think of that We checked in here after leaving the Element – another Marriott brand

The two are not really comparable other than the brand Marriott SpringHill place lives up to the brand Elements is more Red Roof in ambiance than anything else The employees here seem more professionalYou got to really read the google reviews and the most recent ones since the industry is having so much difficulty

Gia Parish

If I could give 0

I would give 0! I got to the hotel after traveling 2 flights, 1 train ride and 2 users Arriving at 11:15pm I called hotel early in day and said I would be in late They said no problem Get in and they say the hotel is sold out I say I have a reservation and had it for 3 days! I’m here on bereavement and the woman had not a care in the world I asked to speak to a manager and they had to call her She was on phone saying I’m not on duty and basically didn’t want to help The girl behind the counter Alia I think kept talking over me and being very rude Then another girl came on duty and the other girl Alia walked out and left very abruptly The girl who came in Melanie helped me get a room 25 mins away but they wouldn’t get me a ride there She called the manager and the manager Jacklyn said just keep a receipt Why should I have to put anything OUT at all I am here after all this travel and they are basically throwing me out to the curb I want my points back, I want to be reimbursed for my suffering waiting in this lobby for over an hour after all day grieving and travel This should have never have happened and I should have gotten a call early in the day! I should be transfered to hotel with their expense What a complete disaster and poor management!!

My husband and I stayed here (for the second time) last night, and we had a wonderful time We had also visited the Inn last summer, and we are huge fans The grounds are absolutely pristine; lush green landscaping, hammocks hanging from weeping willow trees, a gazebo, outdoor pool and hot tub – you name it! The groundskeeper and chef is extremely friendly and skilled, with a cute and friendly dog! The inside is also cozy and clean, and the host Michael is so friendly and warm, providing snacks, tea, coffee and water for the guests

It was our second time in the English Manor suite, which we loved The bed is comfy and the room is spacious and immaculate The bathroom has both a jacuzzi and wonderful shower with multiple jets! One of our favorite features of the Inn is the breakfast overlooking the pool Upon being seated, you are offered French press coffee, a variety of juices, fresh fruit and delicious blueberry muffins! This is followed by a selection of specialty dishes, such as a full English breakfast, pancakes, or Belgian waffles, just to name a few We look forward to returning again next summer (and plan to keep the tradition going every year)!

Cynthia Billone

The Inn at Bowman’s Hill is an amazing place to stay The grounds and pool are breathtaking It is a perfect getaway to escape for the weekend

The room and bed/bedding were high quality and so comfortable It is so private and quiet, but you are minutes away from great restaurants and shops in New Hope and Lambertville Mike, the owner is a gracious host, and the breakfasts we had were amazing and kept us full all day Thank you for your hospitality and for keeping your property pristine The Inn is definitely a unique and very special place We can’t wait to come back!

christine stewart

My fiancé and I stayed at the inn for a little valentines getaway We stayed in the penthouse suite and were blown away by the beautiful grounds, property, room, views from our private terrace, etc even in the dead of winter it was breathtaking! We can not wait to stay again when the pool is open and flowers are in full bloom

The owner and inn keeper were so sweet and took such good care of us They really made our romantic night extra special and were so personable Next morning, we were sitting in the sun room surrounded by lemon trees, and the breakfast was absolutely amazing! We couldn’t thank them enough The twilight LED lights over the jacuzzi tub with a complimentary bottle of champagne on ice was exactly what I needed to ease my stress This is our favorite -getaway from it all- and it’s only 10 min from home! I highly recommend this place!! If only we could have our wedding there… it would be perfect!C Stewart

Not sure about the location, but the service we got in the middle of the night and the breakfast in the morning (WAY more than a continental breakfast) was the refresher we needed Overall what I expect from Holiday Inns at this point Clean, comfortable rooms at a reasonable price

The breakfast (and their support team honestly) were what really stood out I had sausage biscuits and gravy, a cinnamon roll, and pancakes with scrambled eggs Never figured I’d be full from a complimentary “continental” breakfast!

Taylor Hampton

Didn’t even get to the hotel Have a service dog? Maybe a disability? Don’t stay here, find somewhere else They are not federally compliant on service animal regulations

They request documentation which is not a thing in the United States by the Americans with disabilities act They also want pet fees and deposits for service animals, something that is illegal in the states as well When you attempt to educate staff, they don’t seem to understand the law despite then being read it Have emailed management I talked to 2 reservations reps who send you back to the hotel I called guest relations who failed to put in the complaint the first time so another went out No responses They don’t follow the law and don’t appear to care I have turned them into the department of Justice as well as the state of New Jersey for failure to follow the ADAI booked at a hotel in the same town who laughed when I told them what was going and and flat could tell me what the law was on service animals Management needs to do better, if I could rate you less than 1 I would

LeAnne Hadnot

Our stay here was aweful! This was our second time staying at a Holiday Inn Express and we did not enjoy our stay at all There were large black ants in the room We told the front desk and the receptionist came in the room and sprayed raid

Well that only made them come out more On the morning of check out there was a huge black and white spider that landed on the bed from the ceiling! It just so happened that my fiance had just got up and went to the bathroom or it would have landed right on him! The room never got cleaned our 3 days there even though we requested it The oatmeal for breakfast was cold and I had to take it back in the room to microwave itI sent an email to the hotel manager and waited a month before posting this I never heard from him Our experience at the other Holiday Inn Express was a bad experience as well I know one thing for sure, we won’t be staying at this or any other Holiday Inn Express again! You shouldn’t either!

Stayed in the Princeton Marriott for two nights in December It’s our ‘go to’ stop for trips up and down the east coast Isolated and quiet, great sleep quality

Very close to a major college town and the great restaurants and other attractions that come with that We enjoy their bar and restaurant While the menu is not that large, the food was well prepared and delicious Enthusiastically recommended!

This hotel and location are great for my business trips Please, please, please add more bikes to the fitness area There are 4 treadmills, 3 ellipticals and only 1 bike and 1 recumbent bike

Every morning there was at most 1 person on a treadmill and elliptical and multiple people waiting to use the bike Please also consider adding a bike from one of the more popular companies like Echelon The bike will not go to waste

A quiet Marriott with plenty of easy parking Disappointed at a lack of upgrade as a gold elite member despite the hotel being quiet The room service crew did a good job but we’re very loud chatting from very early in the morning

Did not help with the jet lag A bit remote so you will need a car or uber to get to any other options to eat

We took our toddler to sesame place for one overnight stay The staff was very friendly and accommodating They delivered a pack and play to our room and the way the suite was set up was great since we were able to sleep separately from our toddler

Everything was very clean The breakfast buffet was fresh and tasty with lots of options The nicest thing about our stay was the included shuttle ride to Sesame Place and back Not only did it save us money on parking at the park but Lori, our shuttle driver was absolutely amazing! She told us about places to eat and local events She gave us tips about the park, the had children’s music on in the shuttle and gave snacks and cold water on our way back after a long hot day The shuttle is decorated adorably with all the Sesame Street characters She was also very helpful in loading and unloading our stroller I will absolutely stay at this hotel if we take another trip to Sesame Place and will look for this type of hotel on future trips! (Just be careful when booking as a package, somehow the park tickets were not included in the package I booked)

I stayed in this hotel because it was the only option in the area with any type of suite available The cost was reasonable and the entire staff, from management to housekeeping, was extremely friendly and helpful When I asked for anything – information, extra towels, a comforter, I got it quickly

There is a pull-out bed/couch in the main room and unlike the photos online, there is actually a sink area closed off by a separate door before you get to the bathroom or bedroom VERY nice for parents wanting to sleep separately from the kids The hot breakfast was pretty much what you’d expect from a Marriott – waffles, scrambled eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, etcThe reasons for the three star review are lack of cleanliness and comfort The bed was hard as a rock After a five night stay my back is killing me I don’t know how that thing passed for a mattress but it was awful When I arrived at the hotel, there was some dried-on brown stuff on one of the towels, disgusting stains on the comforter, and hair on the sink that wasn’t any of ours The dirty items were at least replaced upon request The hotel is still not doing housekeeping during each guest stay, but I at least expect a clean room when I arriveThe walls are extremely thin and you can hear everything, including crying children in adjacent rooms, talking/suitcases rolling outside, and people peeing in their toilet next door I was on the first floor and there was a light constantly on outside The curtains block light but you have to put something against the seam to prevent light from coming through The smoke detector in the bedroom had lights that flashed all night They allow smoking and pets and you can smell both in the hallwaysThis hotel has the potential to be much nicer with some upgrades and policy changes The staff is wonderful and it’s close to Sesame Place with a free shuttle

Great hotel for visiting sesame place We had a king studio with 2 adults and 2 children We were visiting with another family, also 2 adults 2 children

We were disappointed to not get adjoining rooms, booking the package through sesame place was not very smooth–unsure if there were issues with their site or what (we booked a few months ago so maybe resolved) There was a full sized fridge, and stove top and microwave The bathroom had dispensers with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, I brought my own, so can’t comment, but they were available We brought our own pack and play, so also can’t comment on infant accommodations Hotel included an average hotel breakfast, eggs, sausage, waffle makers, French toast sticks, cereals, etc The shuttle, and the driver Laurie, were fantastic Laurie really went the extra mile and was friendly, provided information about the area, makes sure everyone gets back to the hotel, and when she was about to pull out she noticed our group leaving and circled back around to pick us up and had cold water and snacks for the group

Internet was out so not only did I have to use my data but they could only give out one key Apparently that key had the ability to open all the doors There from Friday evening to Sunday morning and it was never fixed

No sort of compensation from the hotelIs a nice looking hotel Complimentary breakfast was tasty Indoor pool was warm Gym was pretty good Could use a second bench

Meryl Wimberley

Over the weekend I had my wedding and I was very happy with my room block at the Bordentown location The breakfast was actually very good, which I don’t ever expect from a hotel 😅 The rooms were big and perfect for getting ready in

I had my baby at the hotel with me and she slept all night, it was nice to control the individual Temperature in the living room and room Helena was very helpful in setting up the group block and answering all my questions promptly and kindly

Easy check in & check out once I downloaded the Hilton Honors app The app made life a lot easier with the digital key as well Once we got into the room you could tell they didn’t clean it up to par, someone else’s underwear were still hanging on the shower rod … that’s upsetting

The pool had a too much chemicals it changed the color of my bathing suit so I had to throw it away Besides that the hotel was fine

The hotel is not a go to destination being at an intersection of two interstates and across the street from a truck stop But the staff still treated me like I was staying there to enjoy the sites Clean room with a very comfortable bed

Breakfast was meager but filling and there was a good cup of coffee Check in was very easy as was check out

Jennifer D

The hotel appears to be undergoing a needed freshening up Our room seemed to be somewhere in the process, which was a bit disconcerting The bathroom was 1/2 renovated (we think?); the rest of the room seemed a bit worn and dated

The room looked clean and the beds were comfortable, which was our priority There was no hot breakfast, just a small muffin and an apple in a bag There is no neighborhood to speak of or anything of interest in the immediate vicinity Staff were pleasant and helpful, which we appreciated Of course, your mileage may vary!

I want to start this review by stating that when my family travels we almost always stay in a Hampton Inn I say this so you understand that I realize I am not staying in the Ritz, and I manage my expectations accordingly I also realize that this hotel was just off of two separate highways, in the middle of relative nowhere

The lobby and elevators were clean and nice The room was mostly clean, and the beds were clean and well made Now let’s get to the issues:1 The bathtub, did not drain appropriately, thus creating a pool of water that reached up to my ankles during my shower2 The bathtub had a black ring around the bottom, likely due to the tub’s failure to drain3 The door to the bathroom squeaked loud enough to wake the dead, so definitely loud enough to wake anyone that might be sleeping4 There were many holes in the bathroom from old fixtures in the bathroom that were just spackled over, and were quite obviousAlso in the bathroom, there were several purposeful cuts to the wallpaper that appeared to be abandoned prep for new fixtures5 The toilet seat was VERY loose loose enough to move off of the toilet and possibly pinch someone’s thighs6 The sheets were nice and soft but the quilt cover was very rough and uncomfortable7 At the base of the bathtub and floor tile there was a large black stain? Not really sure what it was It didn’t look like mold8 In between the beds the outlet cover was not large enough to cover the hole in the wall]9 Near the window the joint between the wall and ceiling was peeling as was a corner of the room Both of these areas were several feet in length10 The free breakfast area was clean but too small Four was a crowd It only had one waffle maker which really slowed down the process for everyone waiting There was very little choice of food, and what food they did have, there was very little of it, including no coffee They also ran out of eggs, and after a long attempt to find someone that worked there and a worker at the front desk that did a very good job of not making eye contact with anyone, someone did finally go in the back and make some more eggs and sausage and then left the area No fresh coffee was provided hey did have some fresh fruit, but it was 3 oranges, and about 10 black bananasAll in all, a very disappointing place to stay Definitely not representative of The Hampton Inn brand

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your hotel This web site will compare hundreds of hotel sites and usually will have prices much cheaper than others! Thank me later! This hotel is one of the highest rated in the area

I have been coming here for a long time If you choose this place you definitely won’t regret itThis is a very lovely hotel that must have been recently built in the last few years I didn’t notice the typical Western smell but it may just be me You do have a Starbucks branded coffee area but I would not call it starbucks Overall it’s managed by very polite staff and the rooms are well designed It’s not a big hotel but it’s everything you need to enjoy your stay in Princeton

Jodi Dobinsky

The staff was very nice and efficient I solely booked this hotel over finding a slightly cheaper one because this hotel had rooms with a treadmill inside It was perfect for my early morning run

The missing star is just because the hotel is a little beat up looking There’s some stuffs, some spots, etc but the room was clean, even if it was a little worn

My husband and I had such a wonderful stay here! The Inn is charming, (from the 1700’s,) we loved the crown molding, the old wood floors, the fireplaces

even the door locks to the rooms! We were celebrating my birthday and Lydia baked a chocolate cake and had it waiting for us in our room for after we returned from dinner, (with fresh raspberries and ice cold milk!) It was amazing! I can’t decide if that or the breakfast the next morning was my favorite part – her cooking was out of this world It was our first trip anywhere since Covid and we felt totally pampered and comfortable My only regret is not having booked more than one night there – definitely would love to go back the next time we want a romantic weekend away from the kids!

Ben Myers

We stayed at the inn for 2 nights this month and had a wonderful time! The property is gorgeous and well-maintained, and Lydia prepared absolutely amazing breakfasts for us She also gave us great advice on local attractions and restaurant options for lunch and dinner We felt completely pampered and look forward to returning again soon!

Lydia is a wonderful Inn Keeper, creating truly amazing breakfasts and full of helpful tips in the area The rooms were spacious (better than shown in many of the photos) and the history of the place was an added intrigue Highly recommended

One note is that access to the rooms is by stairs, pretty steep – something I tried to find out by looking at the room descriptions on the website

We booked the Sheraton as part of the Sesame Place vacation package I compared all of the Sesame Place official hotel partners and decided to go with this one, even over the one that was walking distance to the parkWe arrived during a heat wave, but were so happy that the room we were assigned was clean, spacious, and cool

The location was also great It only took a few minutes to drive to Sesame Place and was central to a lot of restaurantsThere was also a mini refrigerator in the room that came in very handy We bought a pack of water for our stay and was able to store several of them in the refrigerator so that we could have nice, cold water Ice is only available in the pantry in the lobby and comes pre bagged One bag was enough to use for 4 bottlesThe staff was very friendly and did a great job making me and my family feel welcome It was really nice to come back to such a nice hotel after Sesame Place The towels were so soft, so showering after a day at Sesame felt amazing!We also took advantage of the pool It was a bit dated, but the water temperature was very comfortable The gym looked really nice, but unfortunately didn’t have time to utilize itOverall, I’m extremely satisfied with my dedication and our stay!

Josh Robinson

Nice hotel, but the rooms are definitely older and the garage parking in the rear is confusing The beds are comfortable though, and the rooms are cleanThe staff are all extremely pleasant, and have been the last couple of times I’ve been too

Jason was top notch checking me in, and turned my awful evening around The breakfast is delicious and the waitresses are attentive tooSo far, I haven’t been disappointed here, but I do wish they could open the club lounge again

Joseph Dutko

Stopped by to attend a trade show and meeting in one of their event rooms, it was clean and well organized Restrooms were clean and well supplied It was a good venue and intend to come back again

The hotel staff that I met were helpful and cheery Being a Sheraton, I imagine that the rooms would be just as clean and organized too
