Hampton Inn Princeton

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Hotel is OK. But the breakfast is not very impressive.

We stay at a lot of Hampton Inns (and I travel for work, so I stay at many other properties as well), and this was a very nice Hampton. Appreciated the large room (we ended up in an accessible room although neither of us is handicapped), the great location, and the Suite Shop that included snacks, wine and sundries. Only negative is the set-up of the breakfast bar made for congestion in the morning. Staff were very pleasant.

When we checked in at 11:30 pm, we had to wait 15 minutes at the counter for someone to show up to check us in. No apology, just a key. The room was fine, but when we went down to breakfast in the AM, the entire dining area was packed with no less than 30 people trying to get breakfast. If that is the average number of guests per night, the design is way too small. Disappointed.

It was Average stay with above average price for me.

The room was clean and staff was excellent. Good nights stay

Friendly staff, serve both breakfast and dinner (and beer) free-of-charge. Great value and friendly staff. Thanks.

No complaints. Clean and cozy, well maintained and quiet.

Always stay here when visiting the family when we bring the dog. Great staff, above average rooms, good location. Decent breakfast. A bit pricey, but that comes with the location, and the comfort level justifies it.

Hotel was good but this is the second reservation I've made through travel company where I've been stuck in the room next to the elevator or next to the main entrance, or major hallway. The hotel could not move me because the reservation was made through this travel company. Caveat emptor.

We have stayed at this hotel twice due to "home" emergencies. The rooms are consistently clean and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast to go bags are a nice feature for those who are on the run first thing in the morning.

I found this Hampton Inn to be a very pleasant surprise for the price: service was excellent, the room was immaculate and spacious, breakfast included much more than the typical continental breakfast, and they had no issues with my late checkout - highly recommended for any stays in the Princeton area.

Good Hampton located about 10 minutes by car from Princeton university. Directly on the side of the road, it is in good condition and the building seems rather new. We had two rooms, one enormous with two King beds where a family of foru can easily fit, and a regular King, both had rather small but well equiped bathrooms. Beds and linens are good. Good simply quick breakfast, personel are helpfull and efficient. Good value for the money paid.

I needed a place to stay near Princeton and near Route 1, so the location fit the bill. It was little further north than I wanted, but it turned out to be very convenient. The hotel common areas were clean, the eating area was clean and convenient, the breakfast was very good, and the staff was excellent. The room was clean, but the bathroom was a bit small in the sink area.

Comfortable rooms, fast, friendly desk service, good value for the money. Always a pleasure when staying at Hampton Inn

I came in very late. The staff was very helpful and got us into our room very quickly(important with 2 kids). The room looked great and the kids loved the pool.

As mentioned above, the hotel [...] put the address as 4385 US 1 South, Princeton. My GPS and Google maps took me to that address, but it was for 2 different hotels. Hampton Inn was about 2 miles or more north of that. Apparently many people have this difficulty. I asked them to PLEASE let people know. After 7 hours of driving, getting lost in the dark in an unfamiliar city was exhausting and exasperating.

This was a great hotel for the price that we paid. Comfortable beds, all of the amenities that we could have asked for, and an awesome hot breakfast to top it off.

very convenient to where we needed to be

The pool was wonderful - uncrowded, clean, and warm. The breakfast was the best I've had in a hotel for a long time, and the dinnertime snacks were great. Nice extra touches, too - like yummy cookies at the desk!

The desk clerk was very helpful in giving directions via GPS, she was patient and polite
