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

Abbie B

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!

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 !

Ben Marks

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!

Eric Sterling

Wow! What a charming, amazing place to stay! We were nervous because we had only seen the place online, but we were in awe of the elegance and the size of the place when we arrived! Making matters even better was the location to all the bars and restaurants and of course the 5-star service from the manager Jimmy! If you rent the suite 13, please know there is complimentary parking which was very helpful They were more than accommodating! The best place to stay in New Hope if you want to have a water view and be right in the middle of the action!

Alyjah Jade

I stayed in Suite 13 the night before and night of my wedding, and the Carriage House was one of the best parts of my entire wedding experience I had to postpone my wedding multiple times, and the Carriage House was always accommodating in my reschedules and extremely prompt in their responses When I checked in with my Maid of Honor, the two employees we spoke with were so warm and welcoming, and really got us excited for our stay! When we entered the building, we loved the privacy and quiet environment

Upon entering our suite, we were like kids in a candy store, completely enamored by the beauty of the layout, decor, and beautiful view The suite was two stories with two bathrooms and was the perfect spot for getting ready in the morning with my bridesmaids We had breakfast in the large, inviting kitchen, watched Netflix cuddled up with the cozy blankets on the comfortable sectional couch, and sat out on the balconies chatting and enjoying the serene view The location is great and my Maid of Honor and I walked probably two minutes to pick up dinner from Stella – it’s right in the center of where everything fun to do locally is! It did not feel like a hotel, but rather like a home, and we felt so comfortable and welcome there that we never wanted to leave! It was the perfect place to return to after an outside wedding in the summer heat, to use the beautiful shower and rest in the comfy bed upstairs that had plenty of pillows! I think we’ll have to come back every year for our anniversary I couldn’t possibly be happier with our stay

Robyn Akin

If you stay in the Carriage House please know that you will have a view from bed that is of a restaurant and barSpecifically people smoking or exiting the backstairs will be on the level of your balcony and have a full view directly into the room, as you have full view of themYou cannot see any view of water from the bed

You only see the back of the restaurant from bed, and it’s close Maybe 30-40 yards away againon the same level as the roomsHad the setup the room with the bed on the opposite facing wallyou would have a full view of the River form bed but the TV has that viewIn the summer you can sit outside and be quite close to the river, however you will also be in view of the individuals standing on the back stairs of the restaurant, smoking and exitingThe room is not setup to provide privacy or a water view from inside

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!!

Dave L. (Dave RL)

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!

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

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

ulyssa llovet

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

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 son and I loved staying at Hilltop Motel!! The room was clean and super close to the base! I’m very picky with the cleanliness of the places I stay and this place passed the test The person I spoke with on the phone (I think the owner) was super helpful!! She helped us with information about the base and was always available when I had questions I will definitely be back

Thank you so much for providing a great place for a reasonable price!

The room was extra clean and neat *** Our king bed was very comfortable *** The people who run the motel are delightful, extremely considerate, and followed up twice in a very timely fashion

*** My wife and I are elderly, and I’m just a couple of weeks from hip replacement surgery, so it was wonderful to be able to access the room directly from where we parked, which was immediately in front of the room door *** The price was great, too! *** The only downside, and it’s just a quibble, is that my wife would have preferred the shower water to be hotter ***Considering that other motels and hotels are way more expensive, this was a great stay!


This is a 1950’s motel which the owners have done a great job in renovating the place If you’re just looking for a place to rest your head at a reasonable price, this is the place Our room was very comfortable, very clean well kept

Bathroom is updated with better than usual wash cloth and towels By Mcquires air force base and about 40 minutes from the beach Next time we’ll be staying there

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!

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

The hotel is in real need of a face lift and updating When I travel I always stay at the Marriott chain because of their consistency but this one is 1 of the worst I’ve stayed at The Springhill suites down the road is in much better condition

A few pet peeves about this hotel1) there is no main room light nor is there 1 master switch to turn off the lights Each lamp has to be turned on and off individually 2) the electrical outlet by the bed is part of the lamp but the outlets don’t work well and you have to jiggle your power cord to get it to charge only then to loosen again and stop charging So you are not able to charge any devices by the nightstand beside the bed 3) the shower is gross and in need of a deep cleaning Refer to pictures attached especially of the grout 4) the bed sinks in the middle and is so soft, offering absolutely zero support I won’t be staying here again This gets a 1 star rating bc the bed is clean at least and you can use the app to check in and get a mobile key so they’re to date with technology from that perspective

Disappointed We chose this place for the amenities and confirmed they had the amenities Apparently you to also confirm they are available for use to the guest

Gym was out of service, spa was out of servicebut they charged full price and under delivered on their services Plus they have All of these COVID 19 notices for guests and the employees don’t follow

Mike Maynes

This hotel is worn and dated It smelled musty and there was guest food garbage piled up near ice/vending area, which made the whole hallway smell There were zero towel hooks in the room

Although the Bistro staff was friendly, they were lacking many of the menu items Apparently grilled chicken and oatmeal are supply chain victims The greens within the Mediterranean Bowl were the hi-light of our stay

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!

I popped in for a quick overnight The hotel pricing (double queen) on a Sunday night was very affordable The hotel itself is a bit older, but recent upgrades keep amenities modern

You can tell from the carpet in the hallways and wear spots on doors, yet the bathrooms in the rooms are much newerThe rooms and beds were comfortable The hotel is away/offset from any major roads, so the stay was quiet from any outside disturbancesThe breakfast fare (as identified in other reviews) is average for $17/person: the “hot” food in the buffet was warm; the fruit was fresh crisp; the breads and muffins were freshAll of this was packaged in the standard DoubleTree charm, including helpful staff and the signature cookies


Pretty good First impression was finding a hair in the mini fridge and the sink Not that big of a deal

Room was fine for my wife and two sons The following day we experienced an unruly mob of guests running through the hallways, smoking weed in the stairwell, pulling fire alarms and using fire extinguishers for fun Fire alarm went off in the entire hotel and had to evacuate for at least an hour Very inconvenient and inconsiderate to all guests Thankfully they were kicked out and hopefully will never returnThe staff was very friendly upon arriving The restaurant was also very nice to have on the premises Great food and staff

Quiana Jackson

Room was about $200 which I didn’t mind spending for my 2 kids because I was told breakfast was included and they had a pool! Got to the room and there is no microwave in the so called suite to warm food up The separate room was so little it looks like a bed inside a closet! The pull out sofa bed was not made and had a balled up sheet inside of it! The pool area has bugs! Many bugs! There were no towels available in the pool area in the afternoon/evening when the kids wanted to swim or the next morning! Had to bring the towels from the room! Took the kids to the breakfast area and was stopped and advised that breakfast wasn’t included and I needed to pay an additional $1999 per person including for the kids! Went to the desk where I advised that I was told on more than one occasion that breakfast was included with my price , but was basically told it didn’t matter and that I wasn’t a gold member to get the breakfast! I felt as though I was brushed off

I WILL NEVER COME TO THIS HOTEL AGAIN? What did I pay $200 for? A little room! I will make sure to let my friends and family know to NEVER stay at double tree!

Just had a wonderful stay The hotel is located in a quiet office complex It is surrounded with lush trees and walking trails which makes it perfect for a pet friendly hotel

The hotel is well maintained and very comfortable Everyone acknowledged Hats off to the breakfast staff Breakfast is non complimentary but the convenience, quality and selection far surpass what you’ll receive at a nearby restaurant Highly recommend this hotel

The Keystone Trucker

I stayed here for 2 weeks on military orders and enjoyed everyday I was here The hotel was very clean and is nonsmoking, which made it even better All the staff was nice and very professional

The cook was a sweetheart, and the food was very good I had the king suite with a lot of towels, charging outlets, and lamps The sheets were clean and the pillows were fluffed I do recommend


Everything about my week-long stay at this location was superb Kind, attentive service from the entire staff Accomodating to my needs for the location of my room,, and several colleagues who needed late check outs were a breeze to request

Rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable The morning breakfast staff – all I can say is that they were out of this world!!!! Each morning,, the chef and the server provided delicious meals and started my days off with smiles that were infectious! Thank you for making my business trip so pleasant! They went the extra mile to make us feel at home Truly the best experience! Thank you!
