Holiday Inn Princeton

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very pleasant stay. My only comment is that the breakfast -- though delicious -- was on the expensive side at 12.95 ($10 if you book through Orbitz).

No restaurant for lunch or nice service bed is very uncomfortable

Hotel lovely and it was just right and on rt 1. Even though it was under construction

the hotel is great. very friendly. nice location and great facilities. we enjoy the stay very much.

I booked this room for family & they were very happy with the hotel. It is very clean, the room is small but comfortable & the room has a refrigerator. The lady at the front desk was very helpful. Just be aware that one needs a car to get around from this hotel. No public transportation (bus) is in walkable distance to the hotel.

Nice hotel not far from the university campus. Friendly, helpful staff. Quiet! Would reccomend to family and friends.

The hotel was clean and reasonable in Princeton. The location is not as close to Princeton Junction train station as I was hoping although they do provide a shuttle from 7-10am and (I believe) 6-9pm. A taxi from the train station to the hotel was $26 plus tip and you could go from the train station to New York (Penn Station) in about 70 minutes. The negative side is there was really nothing around this hotel in terms of food or gas and there was limited vending (they had a drink vending machine but the prices were extremely high). In summary the price was reasonable and it was clean, but I was often hungry.

I can not blame the hotel but, after 4hrs of check in there was a power outage because of heavy snow, and we had to checkout. It was not a good experience for us.

Family stay for a sporting event. Front desk was helpful and call to see how things were.

The hotel was great. The most important thing to me are the beds and they were so comfortable! The bedding was great. After a long day at six flags you want to lie in a comfortable bed and that is what we got!

Pleasant

No problems. Business center had only one computer, which is probably not enough for a large hotel.

The hotel is good for the price, and it's very close to Princeton campus

The hotel staff was very friendly and met all our needs. The room was very big and comfortable. My only grudge is the pool was almost as hot as the jacuzzi!!!

Attending reunions Not sure what I would find and was pleasantly surprised. Hotel shuttle occasionally available on this very busy weekend

The entire hotel is rather dreary and needs a makeover. In the room, the low-energy bulbs are so glaring as to make the room seem cold and harsh. The furniture is outdated. The bathroom is well-worn, sink and tub didn't drain properly, tile is old, fixtures are cheap, etc. When i called to complain that a room service tray had been sitting outside a neighbor's room for nearly 24 hours, the response was that there was no one available to pick it up and it would have to wait for another day. I wouldn't stay here again unless there were no other options.

nice amenities, very helpful staff
