This is a gorgeous setting with a lake, trees and a wonderful walking path. You feel like you are living in the tree tops. Kudos to the cleaning crews as the room as well as the common areas are bright and very clean. Great breakfast with lots of options and is kept well stocked all through the breakfast hours. But,...

I stayed at this hotel in February for 2 nights for a local music festival my choir was performing in. The hotel is quite excellent - definitely a high-end Holiday Inn Express. All common areas and rooms were super clean and very nice. There is lots of greenery in and around the hotel, lots of big windows with great garden...

This is a nice hotel with sort of in the woodsy type of architecture with surrounding land and trees. The hotel promises free transportation back and forth from Princeton. The hotel combines with other hotels in the area to provide transportation. However, when we started to leave the hotel to return to Princeton there was no driver and we had...

We stayed here on an overnight before a college tour of Princeton. This was the most affordable hotel I could find in the area. It is close enough to the college that you will not feel totally inconcenvenienced but you will have to drive to get there but only a few miles. The breakfast is better than most hotels that...

I stayed here for one night only but I was comfortable. The beds were soft and house cleaning was superb. Good area but more for conferences not vacation. Nice café on the ground floor. I got eggs. Also, the room has a bed and chair.

... but the pool was closed!! Took the family for a day away from home on a winter Saturday and chose this hotel because of the indoor pool and good ratings the hotel had received. An indoor pool really was the reason for our stay. We checked in and were told by the Holiday Inn staff that the pool, fitness...

Unfortunately, from time to time, the pool area must be closed for routine maintenance....

The room, especially bedding, was comfortable and even nicer than I expected for this type of hotel. However, the hotel leaves one feeling with a rather impersonal feeling. The hallways are very long, and my room was located an inordinately long way from the hotel entrance. The breakfast had several options, including instant oatmeal, cereals, fruit, yogurts, etc. The hotel...

This was a very nice place. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and especially the breakfast buffet. There were many choices from oatmeal to make your own pancakes. The only negative comment is that it was kind of pricey.
