The staff was friendly and helpful We were far away from home and needed shuttle service, Uber service, and food delivery The hotel staff helped me with all of it

Also, we were in town to take my daughter to a special hospital, but because of the time of the appointment, we were going to have to check out, carry our luggage with us to the hospital, and then come back and wait in the hotel lobby for about 3 hours before our shuttle arrived When we came down for the free breakfast (which was wonderful), I asked the guy at the front desk if it would be alright for us to stay in the lobby all afternoon He told me he would schedule us for late check out, which allowed us to leave our luggage in the room, eat lunch there, and only have a 45 minute wait in the lobby It worked out perfectly! Plus, the room was very nice We also used the fitness center and bought lots of snacks and drinks from their little store I’m so thankful we stayed here!

Here on business w my husband It’s utilitarian and serves it’s purpose for business travel, not luxury or vacay

Breakfast is nothing to write home about, they basically stop refills quarter to 9 so be early It was fine until the cleaning lady asked me 3 times BEFORE the noon check-out deadline if I was leaving, twice by knocking on my door! Highly annoying, since I was not there past noon! It was an OK 3 stars at most stay

I believe in giving places second chances And this Hampton in North Brunswick/New Brunswick was so much better the second time around The young lady at the front desk, Sam, is a “world class” professional

She spoke kindly, accurately, and sincerely to me and my girlfriend as we checked in Sam told us about breakfast, she informed us that the pool was open (despite a sign saying it was closed) and, even got us towels and walked us to the pool door to let us go inThe room was very nice too Bed was comfy, bathroom had enough towels for two people to shower off after a dip in the pool Television remote worked and the air conditioning unit was easy to control and understandAs a Hilton Honors (silver) I was very happy with this hotel And despite one bad previous experience, I believe this place redeemed itself with better customer service Thanks again to Sam at the front desk, you are a superstar front desk receptionist!

The general manager (who comped us a breakfast after the people in the room next door had been partying all night) and the restaurant staff seem to be the only people there who know what they are doingFire alarm went off on Thursday evening; guy at the front desk was walking around laughing and filming with his phone instead of directing guests to proper staging area or even checking if everyone was safe Fire brigade arrived after about 10 minutes and then left without any staff making an effort to inform guests it was safe to come back in

Other person behind front desk seemed supremely disinterested and only gave an explanation after being asked Apparently a malfunction was the reason, as it happened again 10 minutes after and in some rooms they were apparently unable to shut it off only after an hour No apologies whatsoever were offered, only a half-hearted offer to move us to another room, which makes absolutely zero difference if the alarm goes off in the entire hotel Note that we were traveling with a 2-year-old as well, who we had to take out of bed and rush out with several times Again, zero apologies offered for the inconvenience Alarm went off twice more the next day, apparently due to a test which was not announced beforehandGeneral lack of service: no responses to several messages we sent through Bookingcom app before arriving to ask for a baby bed Luckily they did have one, but had to take it up to the room myself, and saw several other people walking around with hotel luggage carts, which would suggest severe staffing shortageFood options in the restaurant were either not available or not prepared as advertised (vegetarian burger was not available, grain bowl was not prepared as listed on the menu), though I suspect this is more due to issues with supplies than with staffBathroom had black mold on the ceiling, housekeeping seemed very understaffed, did not always empty trash cans and never removed dirty glasses we took up from the bar on the first night Water leaking from the ceiling in the restaurant and lobby areasPoolside was full of discarded cups, trash and clothing when I wanted to take my daughter for a swim one morningDry-cleaning service is not available on the premises (I realize it is not explicitly stated that it is) but outsourced to a local dry-cleaners, which would take 3-4 days when we asked for it To their credit, they did provide an alternative after we insisted that that was too longAll in all most of the staff seemed either utterly disinterested in their jobs or in dire need of hospitality training

Martin Cocorikis

Made reservation online May 6Tried to add a night on May 10Was directed to the property to make the change

Called the property and spoke with front desk about changes Was told, on May 10, that the changes were made and we were good Got confirmation e-mail 4 days before trip and I see the dates are wrongCall the property and speak with a manager whoo explains to me that the employee who made my changes never actually did anything and now they are booked solid and can do nothing I asked if there was another property near that we could move to I was told that this is a franchise and not linked to other Marriots ???Call Marriot corporate and they too were helpless I then spent over 1k to change flightsThe Worst Customer Service

DO NOT BOOK THIS PLACE FOR A HOTEL BLOCK FOR A WEDDING!!! What a disaster this place is!!!! Nobody knows what’s going on They told us we could check in early (2:00pm) We get here, and EVERY SINGLE ROOM IN THE HOTEL BLOCK is dirty

So here we are, a ton of wedding guests, waiting around needing to get changed for a wedding but can’t go anywhere because every room is dirty Finally we get into our room at 3:25 STILL DIRTY! House cleaning was STILL MAKING OUR BEDS when we walked in Then they tell us the shuttle is going to leave at 4:15 It’s currently 4:35pm with no shuttle in sight THIS PLACE IS A DISASTER DO NOT BOOK IT FOR A WEDDING You’re guests will have no where to get ready and no one will move quick enough to figure out solutions to a problem AWFUL

Cindi Weiss

We stayed here for a New Year’s Eve getaway & had a blast! The heated pool is a good size for a small hotel The fitness center is clean & well maintained with everything we wanted The hot breakfast was good (except for all the styrofoam & disposables but you’ll have that in this day and age unfortunately)

Most importantly, and those I really want to acknowledge, are the staff there Wow! Ruthe and Amanda, the two front desk ladies FANTASTIC I mean talk about above & beyond! And then Darnell, the managerTERRIFIC Kudos to Holiday Inn for finding and keeping such great people on staff Highly recommended!

It’s a nice hotel Room and bathroom were clean Bed was comfortable and so were the pillows

The blanket was thin however, not sure why they didn’t have a comforter They also have a restaurant and a little store We didn’t eat at the restaurant but their breakfast options were small and undesirable The store was convenient yet ridiculously expensive They sell snacks, water, wine, beer, and small things you might need like medicine, etc Overall it was a good experience The few things I didn’t like were that when we first arrived, exhausted after a long day and drive and wanted to check in, the girl at the front desk was on the phone and would not get off We waited for a very long time and could hear that the customer was asking her ridiculous questions, she kept telling them that she’s have to transfer them to another place but just wasn’t doing it You’re supposed to cater to the people actually in front of you first, not people on the phone, so she should’ve at least put that person on hold or transferred them alreadyBesides that, we were looking forward to getting drinks at their bar and found out that it’s only open from 5 pm until 9 pm Um why? Someone else we ran into was pretty unhappy with that as well Yet they purposely sell alcohol for two/there times the price it’s worth in their little store The last thing was that we requested a late checkout upon check-in and the girl gave us a check-out time of 1 pm Yet the day of our check-out, the phone rang once at 11 am and our key cards stopped working at 12 pm We weren’t ready and didn’t check out until 12:45 pm but luckily it didn’t become an issue

Zachary Rockhill

I could not believe the service that I received from this Hotel SUPERB!!!If I could give more stars I would Sharon the manager was such a sweetheart and did more for me than I ever expected

Nate, Brandon, Ryan, and Maggie were front desk associates who made my stay memorable and provided stellar customer service Any time I visit Wall Township, this will be the ONLY hotel I will stay at I am beyond pleased with my stay here and will be doing so for the foreseeable future

Arnon O

Firstly, there is nothing around this hotel ( restaurants bars erc)The maintenance of the rooms is lacking , the sink in my room was clogged , the ironing board would wrinkle your cloths even more Where most hotels which do not provide complementary breakfast provide coffee in the lobby , at this hotel there is only ( expensive) coffee for purchase( the coffee in the rooms is the liw end kind and is complimented by powdered whiteners

)The AC in the room will either freeze you or the room will be warm and damp when the temperature is selected to a warmer temperatureThe windows have not been cleaned in a while ( the windows in the photo are not steamed or wet)couldn’t see much outside on a nice clear dayThe front desk staff was responsive and helpfuloverall, not a pleasant stay

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

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

Jewel Twin

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

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

Purusha Jackson-Cox

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

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

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

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

Grisel Johnson

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

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

Bhaumik Parekh

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

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

Maia – მაკო Iosava

The overall stay was excellent I am satisfied with the accommodations as well as the cleanliness of the rooms/hotel It is worth mentioning that the room had all appliances in the kitchen where you could cook whatever you liked and also the suite was very comfortable for three people as it has two full beds and separate living room with sofa bed (expanding)

We all really enjoyed the stay and I would go back if I have to The only thing I am less satisfied is the breakfast which was mostly out if frozen foods but self-serve waffles were deliciousThank youMaia

kevin guzman music

Very homely, surrounded by nice woods and I believe a small river The facilities were clean the staff nice and the room was superb Had a nice kitchen with everything included (electric stove, sink, refrigerator, cabinets, plates, utensils the works

Bed was comfortable and the sofa bed was a nice touch! Overall a positive experience, only complaint is that the managers reception is only on Wednesdays Wish it was everyday and also the offerings aren’t anything to write home too Honestly it was the worst thing about it, prisons get better meals and snacks Please make an effort to at least really show you care about the guests that pay money to stay in your building


Five stars is not enough Well maintained Nice gym

Very nice and professional staff We had a rough time with other hotels in the area and this Homewood suites blows all the others out of the water Extra kudos to Teresa (I believe) who was working the night shift and dealt with a handful of very aggressive customers with a smile She was poised and showed much more patience than the average person Thank you!

Just sitting in the lobby reflecting back on the absolutely incredible wedding we hosted last night From the very first phone call to Jim, the hotel’s event manager, to the cup of coffee he’s making for me way too early this morning Jim has been nothing short of amazing He made this process so much fun for my daughter and me and we can never say thank you enough

Chef Bobby’s talents shouldn’t go unmentioned either He menu planned with us, made menu items that we threw at him from left field and it was all great We ate at the hotel restaurant Market Yard Grille many times during these months of planning and every meal was delicious! The hotel and restaurant staff are friendly and accommodating Thanks doesn’t seem enough so this shout out to anyone looking to host an event should look no further!! Thank you Jim, Bobby and the entire staff!!!!


Reservations by phone was easyCheck in was under par No luggage cart (only ONE for entire hotel), Desk check-in guy didn’t offer which way to my room, didn’t offer bar/restaurant open times, didn’t even look at me or smile

Room was gorgeous, exhaust fan very noisy, room has ice bucket went looking for ice machine NONE front desk guy gets it from the kitchen, room fridge was turned OffCheck out was easy

Check in was fast and easy Our room was exceptionally clean and cool The AC worked great

We were there to attend my nephew’s wedding in one of the ballrooms The service at the wedding was superb The king-sized bed in our room was ultra-comfortable I don’t usually sleep well in a strange place, but I must say I slept very well The breakfast in the lounge was absolutely wonderful and the coffee, being that I am very picky about coffee, tasted great Check out was as fast and easy as check in The grounds around the hotel were immaculate I would definitely stay here again in the future if needed

Michele P

Booked thru hotelscom and had no issues at check-in The desk staff was friendly & welcoming

The room was clean, had no bad smells, & I was asked on what floor I preferred which was top floor away from the elevator The room (523) didn’t offer a nice view but it was quiet & had a small refrigerator which is always nice The bathroom is small – open door blocks shower, but not a problem as a single traveler Water pressure & heat was excellent The king bed was comfortable & the vending & ice machines were both working Overall a good overnight stay close to where I needed to be


February 2022We stayed in the bridal suite and a blocked room The thermostat was set to 68 and you couldn’t go lower Multiple people in the room were sweating (including bride) and there was nothing we could do

I stayed in a separate room overnight and couldn’t sleep because it was too hotBridal suite only includes 3 barstools and two ottomans Hair staff had a hard time doing our hair because the chairs were so high We requested regular chairs and it took about 2-3 hours for them to bring themBridal suite didn’t have towels! It was just an accident I’m sure but there were ZERO towels in the bathroom when we checked in Had to request them the next morning and they brought two sets which was niceWe had breakfast on a Sunday morning No complaints! Everything was hot and fresh The staff were waiting nearby So that was niceMyself and my boyfriend run hot and couldn’t sleep in the hot room For that alone, we wouldn’t stay here again It was HOT

What a wonderful hotel! Looks newly renovated and incredibly clean I travel a lot for work and this will definitely be my hotel in the area when I return Their free hot breakfast was amazing! Besides usual pastries and bagels, they had eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and make your own hot waffle, which I saw the kids really enjoyed

The room was very comfortable to work in, had good WiFI during my whole stay in room or lobby I’m a hard critic of hotel bathrooms and this one was very good!Five stars from a frequent traveler!

Monika Socha

We recently stayed at the hotel for our wedding reception and it was a wonderful experience The staff, especially the manager on site, was super accommodating and understanding, especially when we were running late and kept some of our vendors waiting They also offered us extra bottles of water knowing that we’ll be returning late and in need of that extra hydration plus they didn’t hesitate to offer us late check out! 🙂 The room was super clean and comfy! Since breakfast is usually served until 10AM, when I came down at 9:35AM the next morning, I expected to find scraps but to my surprise, the breakfast bar was fully stocked! That was definitely very much appreciated and the food was great! Overall, the experience was wonderful and I would definitely recommend staying at this location 🙂 Worth every penny!

Abraham Almagrabi

The two main reasons for reserving this hotel are the pool and the cleanliness; they didn’t disappointThe hotel didn’t get this cleanliness rating for no reason All the way from the reception, through the lobby, to the room, you can sense a fresh smell and you’ll even notice the carpents looking brand new (they could well be) which is sometimes a turn off in other hotels

You then come into the room and smell a sweet scent, as though they’re preparing you for an experienceThe pool was also nice and warm and was pleasant The whole experience was great and would definitely recommendMy only suggestion, if any, would be to actually provide locks for the bathroom doors, as opposed to sliding doors that can’t be locked We had to get used to it quick, but having a family in a room would always be worrisome and we can definitely do without that worryOther than that, we enjoyed the stay very much

Wayne and his staff are amazing! The hotel is easily accessible for many major roads in the area When you arrive you are greeted by a friendly face and welcomed into a clean comfortable hotel We stayed there every weekend for over 2 months and we had no complaints about any of the rooms we were in during our stays

Any special request placed on the app were always in place when we arrived We were so happy with the hotel that our son is now using it for his block of rooms for his wedding Keep up the great work!

We were booked as a guest for a wedding Having arrived from out of state, the front desk assisted in getting us into a room before the actual check-in time Unfortunately, although the room was vacated, it had not yet been cleaned

A quick call to the front desk got us immediately moved to another room The room was spacious and very comfortable The only drawback is that the rooms seem to have “mood” lighting You know, for evenings and good rest It was incredibly difficult to apply make-up in such dim lighting A mirror by the window or a bright bathroom light would have made a big difference! Being so close to a wedding venue, they should remember people get dressed there, not just sleep

BUGS I’m stating that right up front so anyone skimming the reviews sees it immediatelyWe stayed here two nights for a wedding over the 2022 Memorial Day weekend We did not notice anything immediately, but as my wife got ready to go to bed she found one mature bed bug Not having had interactions with the pest before, she thought it was a tick, which is gross, but doesn’t usually indicate an infestation I had been visiting with friends and came back to the room a half hour later and immediately realized that it was much worse than that Checking the corners of the bed, we confirmed that it was indeed a bed bug infestation and had likely been that way for some time since there were examples spanning the life cycle chart of bed bugs Needless to say, we immediately vacated the roomTo be fair, the staff at the hotel was somewhat accommodating They immediately gave us a new room and comped our entire stay However, they did not offer any preventative measures, did not do anything to ensure the new room (which was on the same floor) was not also infested, and were not able to even advise me on their standard sanitation practices Upon inspection, our new room was clean and we advised numerous friends staying in the hotel to check their rooms, which yielded no further bug findingsOver the course of the weekend, we walked past the room multiple times to see if anyone else was staying in the room or if they were cleaning the room or anything at all Nothing No precautions were made to ensure that the infestation wasn’t spreading A simple Google search shows that bed bugs can and will travel between rooms, so this was highly concerningAlmost a month later, despite taking extensive precautions, I live in fear that we brought the pests home with us since they can live for months without feeding (gross) I would happily pay the cost of the hotel stay in exchange for peace of mind, so while the comping of the room was appreciated, in my opinion it is entirely inadequate Do betterSuffice to say, we will not be staying at this hotel ever again, and furthermore will not be patronizing any Fairfield hotels in the future Please heed this warning and stay somewhere else – there are plenty of other hotels in the area

Had to book a last minute stay and everyone here was so accommodating The housekeeping was extremely friendly as was everyone at the front desk I never ate in the dining area but they had so many options at reasonable prices The lobby had everything we needed in the small shop so we didn’t have to run out for any snacks or necessities

Bathroom and bedroom fully stocked with soaps, towels, etc Another plus was that they are dog friendly, they even had little complimentary dog treats at the front desks While the hotel room was extremely nice and the entire place was well kept, the employees definitely made our experience! I cant thank you guys enough and we will definitely be returning!

This we will be my new stay in this area from now on The building may look different from the outside but its a great stay on the inside The rooms are comfortable and clean most importantly

I’ll definitely stay here again Not as jam packed as some of the mainstream corporate hotels either There is an Applebee’s bar practically connected to the property if you need a drink Also a 711 in walking distance and some businesses like a pizza place right across the street Great highway access too but far enough away where you don’t hear the traffic Perfect location!

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
