Great Value

The breakfast they offered at this place was great. I travel about 175 times a year and this hotel has everything I was looking for and the price was not bad at all. I would definitely stay here again. the people that work there are really helpful too.

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.

A good cheap place near Princeton for those with a car

Whole Foods within walking distance. The room had a dark wet spot on the ceiling probably from the A/C unit above. Luckily, the spot wasn't dripping. The noises/voices from the nearby units are clearly audible in the room. Saw several small insects (look like small black ants) in the bathroom, though weren't inconveniencing me. The breakfast is surprisingly abundant and diverse! Internet is good for Skype, though Youtube videos take time to load. Much cheaper than any other hotel within reasonable walking/driving distance from Princeton!

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.

Was Expected

When I booked the hotel I didn't have any high expectations considering previous reviews, price, and listed amenities. The hotel staff was pleasant and the room appeared to be clean. I would say overall everything was average, you get what you pay for.

Dining tip: In Hotel

I would not recommend eating at PURE, the restaurant connected to the hotel. The first impression that I got when I walked in there is, why is this restaurant connected to this hotel? It had very nice ambiance and the staff was friendly, but other than that it was horrible. This is a classic case of a restaurant thinking that if they have a nice setting and expensive prices, it will make the food taste better. My friend and I went there for dinner and the bill was about $75 for an appetizer, a steak salad, and pad thai w/chicken. The steak came out bloody and cold and the pad thai was subpar. Later in the night we ordered pizza and sushi for the room, the pizza was nearly inedible and the sushi was average. If you're thinking about going here, reconsider and save yourself the frustration and money.

Good location and nice restaurant adjacent. I was not too impressed with the staff and their knowledge of handling my transaction through online booking.
