Nice hotel for the money Easily accessible from the parkway Ample parking

I had a two-double bed suit The front parlor has a mini fridge, microwave wet bar, TV and sofa-bed The bathroom is a little dated but good water pressure and clean Pool was on the smaller size They have a full bar and you can order appetizers Nice lounge areas to mingle Great buffet breakfast which takes sanitary and health precautions into account Jennifer who assisted us at the main desk was awesome I used the App to check-in and it was great I was able to select my room and use my phone as my room key One of the downfalls of the App they do not tell you that you need to visit the front desk to get passes to utilize some of the amenities of the hotel This is a family friendly hotel

We booked our room through a secondary app that Embassy Suites works with, and they somehow lost the room we booked (two rooms that were combined with double beds and a pull out couch) and switched it with a single KingAfter a little arguing and showing proof of the confirmation of our room, the front desk was able to find an available room close to what we ordered & paid for And the staff was being friendly and helpful during the dilemma/confusion

So I would recommend that if you book a reservation through a secondary travel app–ALWAYS call up the particular hotel immediately after you obtain your confirmation from the secondary app to ensure that your reservation matches what Embassy Suites received from the travel app That way you can avoid what we went through before you arriveThat said, the room was clean as was the entire public spaces The breakfast comps (a coupon per person/per overnight stay) were handed over via a coupon We were also handed a complimentary ‘welcome drink’ for the evening for every adult in our reservation who was 21+ but none of us used itThe breakfast in the morning was well organized, ample beverage choices (coffee, tea, milk, juices) with a fresh fruit section, cereal to choose from, scratch-made pancakes and omelettes (I would recommend) & french toast (needs to be improved) with fried potatoes and your choice of breakfast meats–either bacon or sausage (bacon was paper thin and very salty, so maybe the sausage was a better choice, but we all had the bacon)Anyhow, the room was comfortable and clean You can change the temperature to fit your preference The bathroom was a good size and there was an additional sink in the room with the beds as well a wet bar sink in the lounge area of our room The lounge area was a little on the small size but workableI’d say that this room was a bit overpriced in comparison to where I’ve stayed at in prior trips at different hotels (those have larger rooms & larger lounge areas in the rooms), but overall it was okay for a single night’s stayPrice point to what we received: I personally would stay at one of the other hotel chains that I’m alluding to over this one, especially since the main reason we chose this location was for the pool (which was closed due to Covid restrictions) So for all intensive purposes, we were in a smaller room than what I know we could have stayed at for about 100 dollars less with similar breakfast deals but the other chains lack the displayed ambiance you’re greeted and surrounded by when you enter into this hotel’s lobby & public areas

Melissa L

The breakfast was delicious! Loved the omelets! The main foyer area was beautiful (bravo to the architect) If you have to spend a few days here you would enjoy sitting by the fountain or taking a leisurely walk along the pondOur room was clean and spacious, but we did have to change it upon arrival due to a small leak in the bathroom

The staff was pleasant and friendly, and a special thank-you to Heraldo who was very kind and helped us with our room changeOverall it was a very enjoyable experience and I highly recommend this hotel

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

Nice hotel but it’s pretty much a hotel for a club If you come on a weekend good chances you get young kids partying next door blasting music all night Choose another hotel if you want a relaxing night to yourself

Staff tried to quiet them down, came up twice but they wouldn’t listen Nothing they can really do about it I guess Ended up changing rooms at midnight

Kaitlin Moran

The bed was very comfortable and the room was super cute Only complaints are that the pool was pretty cold even though it was heated, our rain shower head didn’t work in our room and, the breakfast selection wasn’t great considering you had to pay for it I would have liked to have bacon instead of cold it’s

Just saying Overall though it was an enjoyable stay

Michaela L

This hotel and rooms are extremely nice, clean, and spacious However, the staff working on the ground floor was not attentive towards us or friendly at all We were not properly greeted when we first arrived to check in and most were behaving like we were an inconvenience to them for having to do their job

They also acted like we should know how everything works but it was our very first time thereNobody explained the procedure of checking in with a host before going up to the rooftop bar The host stopped us while we were already inside the elevator and had a condescending tone asking if we had a reservation When checking out, no one was at the front deskOn a positive note, the rooftop bar was a fun atmosphere and the bartenders were amazing and attentive It’s a beautiful place to stay but I personally would think twice about going back just because of how the hotel staff treated us

Love this place I fell Inlove once I went in and it’s super clean The gym was nice and the bar was great I made friends and the atmosphere was amazing

The supervisor named Molly was great and the staff at the front had a great attitude I will definitely be visiting that hotel again I went to a wedding and that hotel was a perfect addition to my trip I definitely recommend this hotel

Heather Garvey

Stayed here for another baseball tournament (Diamond Nation) in July and it AGAIN was a great stay These days I feel like customer service is “blah” at best Nobody seems to really want to help or do more than necessary

NOT THE CASE HERE! I have stayed in dozens of hotels, with higher “ratings” than this one and most fail in comparison The staff here are friendly, helpful, courteous, and PATIENT There are a ton of baseball families with kids of all ages who stay here – run through the halls, jump in the pool, and use the BBQ area Same kids and families hang out in the seating area in the lobby until late at night with snacks and watch tv The staff accommodate and the next day things are once again SPOTLESS No garbage waiting to be cleaned up, no sticky tables, no wet towels The rooms are also very clean and in working order Now, to be fair – it’s not perfect or whatever definition someone may think perfection is But this is a hotel you feel safe, it’s clean, there is plenty of room to relax – there is a small kitchen area in each room, great location – with friendly helpful staff While traveling, this is pretty close to a perfect hotel stay in my book

Kristina Fieseler

We recently used Hyatt House Branchburg for our wedding room block when we got married at the Ryland Inn, and we were so impressed with the high level of service they provided Sean was absolutely the best to work with He was so accommodating when I was making very specific requests about where we would like certain people located in the hotel, and helped make the transportation schedule to and from the venue

I highly recommend using them for a room block if you are getting married in the area!

Good hotel Clean and polite staff, housekeeping comes regularly to check if you need anything The housekeeping staff is so sweet

The hotel is also in a good area and they have designated quiet hours so you don’t have to deal with noisy neighbors when you’re trying to sleep There was also excellent lighting from the windows in our room so it made our days in the hotel a lot more bearable

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!

Stacey Sutts

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

Richard Urquhart

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

I’ve been a guest at this Fairfield Inn weekly for over a year This hotel is exactly as advertised

a business class hotel in a rural area with clean rooms, friendly and attentive proprietor and staff and continental breakfast It is not a luxury resort with swim up bar or patios for catching rays Instead, it is quiet and clean place to retire at the end of a long day at work

Gina Donelan

Didn’t want to give them even 1 star but had toWhen we first arrived we asked for the military discount which we were told we could get prior to arriving and they told us they could not give it Our stay was for 4 nightsALL breakfasts were quiche if you wanted anything warm

Other than that it was cereal Other occupants who came down while we were there opened the lid of the pan and after seeing it was quichemumbled a few words and put the lid back on taking nothingThe refrigerator in our room froze all our food so we had to throw out the foodA dirty mask was found beside the bedAnd No hot water on our last day before catching our planeContacted manager and after explaining all of this to him he ended up lecturing me than hanging up on me! I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this hotel!!!

Rithika Patel

We had a family event and stayed there for a day The rooms had a smell to them I found hair on the sheets and pillow covers, there was hair and debris in corners of the bathroom and the room

Also had droplets below the toilet seat that weren’t mopped up properly My seven year old even noticed how dusty the room was Not to mention, I accidentally left my shoe bag in the room, which I am a 100% sure I did, and called back that same evening when I realized it and they said they never found it I would have checked out if it wasn’t for all my family staying there I would never stay here again

I was hesitant staying because we weren’t that far from home, but I didn’t feel like making a second trip the next day How comfortable we’d be was what would make or break itVery happy we stayed! The suite was much nicer than the photos (I almost didn’t book because I wasn’t impressed by pictures on the website)

The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, bowls, drinking glasses and silverware – enough for the full occupancy of the room The hot breakfast met the standard for a complimentary breakfast, but I recommend eating early My experience when it opened was much better than my kids two hours later Only disappointment was that the indoor pool was closed Check-in and -out was easy Front desk and housekeeping staff were very helpfulMy kid had a basketball tournament in the area this weekend and it seemed many other parents involved with various sports were there too Many guests had dogs but the facilities were still very clean I’m usually a Marriot guy but Hilton won me over at this location

Jade Clerc

Hotel was nice & the staff was nice However one of the main reasons we stayed was for the pool which was closed We were looking forward to the firepit which didn’t work

Breakfast was standard There were kids playing basketball early in the morning which is right by the bedroom window & woke us up Our bathroom/bedroom area smelled like cigarettes, i guess from a surrounding room

Susanne K. Stinger

Great room and wheelchair accessible shower, just as promised when reservation was made Very helpful and friendly personnel Had just a couple of small hick-ups, but they were fixed promptly and with a smile

Priced very well also We’ll be back on our next stay in NJ Thank you We really appreciated your facility and cooperation

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

The hotel is quite modern and has no smoke smell The hotel is clean and tidy My only issues with the hotel are they did not have a complimentary breakfast nor did the room I stayed in have a refrigerator or microwave

Also, the gym was not available If the hotel is charging normal high rates then they should have other services included instead of cutting other services Another issue I had was with the nighttime front desk attendant – Medium height, African American middle-aged female She was quite rude and did not try to accommodate my needs when it was already pre-booked a few days earlier and she was very rude when I tried to resolve the issue with her Would probably not stay here again if the issues are not fixed

I was on a vacation to Boston, New York and New Jersey recently I lived in Basking Ridge many years back in late 1990’s and having known the area and close to Hindu Temple in Bridgewater, booked a room in Delta Hotels by Marriott, Basking Ridge It was a very pleasant experience for my wife and me

Location is excellent, nice greenery view from window, no noise and very peaceful Front staff were gracious and helpful Room service was great, though it is done on request due to COVID situation Room was very spacious, clean, very clean and upgraded bathroom, great mattress, pillows and sheets and towels, nice climate controlling unit in the room Quality toiletries were provided Had great rest sleeping on the very comfy mattress!! Morning complimentary coffee was good Free water bottles were provided For the price we paid, it is well worth it Wish we had more time to stay few more days at this hotel Overall, we had a great memorable stay!! Probably the best after Wynn Resort in Las Vegas and better than the other Marriott and Sheraton Hotels we stayed during this trip in Boston and New York I was able to see the places I used to go back in the days around Basking Ridge and reminded pleasant memories All the towns, Hindu temple close by make this location very ideal I strongly recommend anyone coming to visit the temple from out of state and planning to stay overnight or few days to definitely stay at the Delta Hotel in Basking Ridge One can appreciate the real beauty of New Jersey towns around this hotel after seeing the horrible places like Newark, Jersey City, Oranges etc!!

My sister got married last weekend We booked rooms at the Bridgewater Marriott because it was close to the venue Unfortunately our experience was less than satisfactory

There are three of us sisters and two of us have children We wanted to have neighboring rooms so we could easily hang out and the cousins could spend time together Our rooms were confirmed the day before arrival via both phone and email However, when we arrived none of the rooms were ready and we all ended up on separate floors of the hotel Additionally, the rep from the hotel that my sister (the bride) worked with informed her that shuttle service would be provided from the wedding venue back to the hotel after the reception This was important as there was alcohol at the reception and we needed to ensure we could travel safely We we’re told that this was included in the booking costs Upon arrival, we were told that this service is no longer included in booking costs due to COVID and we had to pay an extra $1,000 to get the transportation we were promised My sister’s mother in law booked brunch for the wedding guests in the salon on the first floor the morning after the wedding The hotel had my sister’s credit card as well as her mother in law’s credit card on file They were told to charge the brunch to the mother in law However, they charged it to my sister The bride ended up paying for her own post wedding brunch!!! The rooms were nice and clean The staff was friendly There were just so many errors on the hotel’s part that it really took a toll on my sister’s wedding experience I would not recommend using this hotel for an important event such as a wedding Maybe for a night if you are passing through, but not when there is a lot at stake

Chris Fortunato

Will never stay here again The room was a bit dirty, the bottles in the shower were empty, and the staff was not cooperating with my requests We were here for my sister’s wedding and they had not handed out any of the gift bags to our family and friends

I ended up having to hand out like 12 bags during the after party rather then having fun When we arrived for our after party the staff refused to supply us with ample amounts of food for our guests I had requested a room with a better veiw when I arrived and the staff had said all the rooms still needed to be cleaned, this was at 4pm with a 11am check outI would not suggest this as a wedding hotelThe rooms are nice but they lack refinement for the price of a night

One of the best experiences I have ever had at a hotel and it’s mostly due to the staff I had the pleasure of speaking to Melanie, Andrew, and the GM Summer and everyone was absolutely delightful You can see that they have such a good team dynamic in there because everyone is so amazing and you can feel the energy

The only reason why I knew Summer was the GM was because of her name tag and that is a good thing She was so nice to everyone and ready to do any job need be I could tell that the team there loves what they do and they made me love staying there just after one nightThe beds were comfy, room was nice, and there was no lingering musty smell in the roomsThank you all for such a great experience!


I was on a business trip from Canada to NJ, I have stayed other hotels before this one This hotel is new and clean, the staff at the front desk is very warm and helpful, they even let me check in early in 9Am The check in process and other service is efficient and quick

I had experienced of waiting long time for simple task at NJ a lot, but not this oneAlso the furniture and carpet in the hotel room are in relatively light colour, so that you can tell it is clean or not, and the room is bright They are not like other hotels that everything is in dark Really liked itFeel like exhausted traveller found some comfort finally at this hotel

The hotel rooms were clean and organized, had a reasonably good view, and were close to various stores/restaurants, making it a good location The reception was friendly and accommodating Overall, in terms of the rooms, 5/5The only problem we had was with regards to the bistro

We had reserved a room that included free breakfasts that were to be picked up at the bistro Each time we faced a variety of issues The cashier often “conveniently forgot” to add particular items to our order, made bagels with either two tops or two bottoms and with a micrometre of cream cheese The first day we arrived there was no chef, meaning no hot meals (which was understandable) The next day, when the chef was in, we decided to order eggs For $850 plus tax, these were the smallest portions for the most mediocre eggs and bacon, not to mention the extra charge for toast, which was around $150-$250! Our experience with the bistro was a solid 1/5If you are looking for a good hotel with a nice view and convenient location then Courtyard North Brunswick is a solid choice, provided you avoid the bistro

was going to have my wedding here but of course with covid it was cancelled the entire process leading up (which should have been my wedding day) was so easy, and seamless We worked with Amanda and she was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions! (I did have quite a bit)

The food tasting was AMAZING and the venue we did get to see it all dressed up since we went to a wedding event the year prior The grounds are gorgeous and we also rented the Laurie house It is so beautiful Even though we were canceled to covid they still offered us our anniversary stay which was beyond gracious and they were amazing to deal with If you have a chance to book with them for your special day, please do so

Austin Yoon

Just had an amazing wedding there this past Sunday night The hotel was super accommodating to everyone there, the staff was wonderful and very helpful, and overall atmosphere they provided was amazing A special shout out to Larissa for making everything come together, she didn’t have to but she busted her butt trying to make everything perfect for us

We TRUELY appreciate everyone who was there and are so thankful to have chosen this location who welcomed us with open arms 10/10 recommend solely on the fact that this group of people who make this hotel run are true hero’s Thank you

Jesse Na

If you are considering getting married here, Larissa will make sure you have your dream wedding Despite having another wedding the day before ours, Larissa made sure to share her precious time for all my questions and was very responsive about my concerns The day of the wedding, it was clear how hard Larissa was working as she personally made sure all the decor was displayed correctly and treated our rentals like her own by keeping them safe

The hotel itself is also a beautiful venue in a secluded area with flowers in full bloom and a bridge that was perfect for first look photos The hotel also has a food tasting that you should attend where they serve appetizers, entrees, and the cake The eggplant caponata with whipped ricotta and basil was so delicious it was added to cocktail hour The entrees tasted even better than the tasting the day of the wedding and overall I could not have been more please in how the wedding turned out If you are considering having a wedding here you should ask for Larissa!

The team at check in was very niceThe suite room was spacious and clean It had a balcony as well

I had dinner at the Ruby Tuesday that’s attached and was able to charge to the room The room charge slip indicates you could do room service as well and had a $2 charge for thatThe view from the room was nice right at twilightThe line for breakfast was a little bit long but I think it was because I went down at the most premium time There were several team members who came to pitch in and help and they were all very nice

Joseph B

Check in was fast and simple Room clean, spacious and well put together Does show its age

Pool was nice, does need better lighting and a good cleaning, but for the price and property expectations it gets the job done Morning breakfast spread is non existent Pre packaged muffins in 2 flavors I’d stay again but keep in mind just another hotel finding a quick exit to save money on breakfast rather take care of the paying customers

Jenifer Behrens

We stayed here for 4 nights for my sons baseball tournament From the time I called to make reservations to the time we left everyone was absolutey amazing We needed extra towels and they were super quick with gettinfthem to us

The hotel is huge and used to be gorgeous but now it looks outdatedIf you choose a room with breakfast you will be not wrong 😉Outdoor pool is great

  Continental breakfast has usual Hilton options  (scrambled eggs,  bacon,  breakfast potato) with some restaurant’s touch (you supposed to use vouchers)The territory around the hotel is nice but needs a little bit more attentionOverall it was a good stay  My kids enjoyed weekends there

J Monique C

I wonder if this place was nice before COVID because now the place gives an outdated vibe It has a pool, business center, plenty of conference space and a restaurant on site Yet, nothing made me feel like I was in for a treat including the staff who barely recognized my diamond status

They were less than warm in their welcome Maybe they were tired because it was a holiday weekend and bus load of kids checked in? At least the bed was comfortable and the room was clean

Kristina Mereigh

This double tree hotel was a great disappointment I am a Hilton Gold honors member and had never been to a Hilton property that was so outdated and unclean We booked this location for an anniversary staycation for two nights and checked out after night one because of how gross it was

We had to stay night one because no other hotels in the area could take us that late at night We booked a room with patio walk out to the pool The doors were incredibly hard to open, the patio curtains were so filthy and dusty, I needed to go and buy allergy medicine The patio windows were so streaky and dusty, you couldn’t see through them The air in the hotel was musty The bathroom still had hair in it and it was so small you could barely move around One of the front desk staff was so rude, I was appalled Ive never been treated that way in a Hilton property before The hallways looked like they had never been vacuumed and the ice machine was so gross, we went out to buy ice for our water bottlesDark, musty and outdated Highly don’t recommendThe grounds are the only saving grace The outside is pretty but the pool fills up quickly and the lounge chairs are incredibly limited so if you want one for your family, secure it before 9am There are only like 4 of them so it feels like hunger games for them

It’s absolutely beautiful! The grounds are beautifully maintained Everything is lovingly cared for The rooms are well appointed with very comfortable beds

The vintage charm is genuine and off the charts There are many areas, inside and out, for your ideal photo ops The Grain House Restaurant has delicious American cuisine, some of which is prepared with the abundance of delights growing in their own organic garden This lovely Inn is well worth your trip from near or far

Briana Falconer

I can’t say enough good things about Olde Mill Inn! This venue is perfect if you’re looking to have your wedding ceremony, reception and hotel accommodations in one place Lindsay was our coordinator and the day went absolutely perfectly! Before the wedding day, planning was easy and thorough The day of, Lindsay was readily available any time I had a question and she made sure that my bridal party and I had everything we needed wherever we were

I had a ton of decor and the team did a fabulous job of setting it up just the way I wanted it The reception space looked even better than I could have imagined and the food was excellent! The staff was so professional and every made sure everything was packed and secure in our overnight suite I highly recommend this venue!

Wedding venue review: Best day of our lives We truly can’t say enough good things about the Olde MillIf you’re lucky enough to work with Lindsay (sales) or David (maitre d’), you are in the best of hands

Both were excellent at communication, responding to emails and calls right away, and took care of every last detail Planning was a breeze and on the day of, David made sure that not a thing was out of place The ballroom looked stunning, all of our personal items were set up exactly as we’d hoped, and on our 100 degree wedding day, David was somehow everywhere we needed with an ice cold water The little things made us feel really special too – David brought us and our parents special plates of the cocktail hour food (since we were so busy talking with our guests), and even had food waiting for us in our hotel room for after the reception, (as we were having too much fun to eat our dinners)!Speaking of – the food was delicious We received so many compliments from guests and the staff were so friendly and attentiveIn terms of the venue, the whole place is beautiful and we LOVED having accommodations for our guests right there with no need for transportation It also worked out great for guests to grab continental breakfast the next morning tooWe are not people who usually write reviews, but we would not have changed a single thing about out wedding day and can’t recommend the Olde Mill Inn enoughBonus – we had our rehearsal dinner at the Grain House, which was also perfect Wishing we could hit repeat on the whole weekend!
