2.5 Star not 4.0 - Could not find

Apple GPS maps combined with poor assistance from hotel resulted in spending 1.5 hours to travel what was supposed to be a 2.5 mile trip from Princeton University to the hotel---actual mileage was about 30 miles. One of our cars was separated and even with the helpful hotel clerk, it took 30 minutes to direct them in. The 800 number rep hung up on me. Clean, courteous staff---great location once you find it. First room was used; second room had some deficiencies too. There are many hotels in this area and most likely I will try another what will be many trips over the next 4 years.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are not familar with NJ roads, many of the highways do NOT provide easy access to both sides of the roads; watch for jugends (to reverse directions) and cloverleafs that will allow you to get off, reverse direction and get back on going the other way.

Pleasant place to stay

Stayed here one night and was satisfied with the hotel. The front desk allowed me to stay an extra hour, which was much appreciated. The only negative is that the hotel is on the south-bound side of a divided highway, so you may need to do u-turns to arrive or depart.

at the Clarion in Princeton they ran out of eggs at 9:30 and never brought eggs , . The end of the breakfast was at 10.a.m.People were asking,they said,""" eggs are coming"""but they they never came with the eggs. My sister is a diabetic, she needed the protein,we had to leave and eat at a restaurant which cost us $15.00.

Not bad but also not fantastic!

We only slept one night at the hotel. The air conditioning was not working in the lobby and in the corridors. The pool was empty. Apparently, the hotel had some maintenance problems. I would have liked to take a swim because it was very hot. Our room was adjacent to the service stairs and every time someone used the stairs, the door would slam shut. I could not sleep very well at night. The room was comfortable, the air was working but the mattresses were a bit hard.

It was ok....

The hotel staff was very nice. For the most part, the hotel was ok. The hallways were not always clean as they were redoing some rooms and carpets and maresses were on the floor in the hall. The room was ok - but the bathroom needs updating and was not very clean. Hotel ran out of shampoo so we had to buy some and breakfast on the second moning of our stya was not available as the staff member did not show up on time. In addition, the in-hotel dining was very expensive!
