The room and facility could use a face lift, BUT for the price, we got a lot. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. There was a desk with chair plus an upholstered chair. The TV got hundreds of channels, and wi-fi is free. The breakfast was much better than we had anticipated including fresh fruit salad as well...

Reviewed 21 November 2016

I have no complaints - not even minor ones. Pleasant check-in and check-out. The room was spotlessly clean and very quiet. Everything worked well, including the wifi. The bed and pillows were what seemed to be a little "better quality" than you usually find, making for a great night's rest. That's all we were looking for... Fine job !!!

By American hotel standards, this property is somewhere between old and ancient -- the building, furnishings and fixtures are at least 20 years old. Everything in the rooms is repainted, recaulked, or otherwise repaired, with only the carpets looking presentable. We stayed three nights and our room was serviced NOT ONCE, despite our complaint to the front desk. The included...

Stayed in Clarion hotel for one night. For its price the value is just fine, although the interior could do with a serious update. Princeton is at 10-15m driving distance, big mall with cinema close by. Placed along route from NYC to Boston.

It's a budget hotel. The room could have been cleaner. As a matter of fact, we found an unused condom behind the chair. Obviously the maid had not vacuumed there. The cleaning had been very superficial. The room had a new heat/cool unit but the broken one was still there collecting dust and taking space. The bathroom tub was not...

There are a number of motels on Route One and I decided to stay here because it had access to roads besides Route One. It was great being able to drive to Princeton and get back without having to wade through the Route One traffic. It is an improvement on motels farther down the road like Red Roof. For about...

If you want people looking into your room at night, this is the place. They don't have curtains that close, only sheers. As a woman traveling alone I felt very uncomfortable and had to hide in the corner on the loveseat to not be seen by people walking by. I'm a Choice Hotel member and this was this worst I've...

This is a convenient, reasonably priced hotel near Princeton University. We were in town for a wedding and were looking for a place to crash after the wedding and this hotel did the trick. It is on a main road and is easy to find. We didn’t get to spend too much time at this hotel, but we thought it...

On the 295, we somehow found ourselves on 95 S when we wanted to go N. Not having important devices with us, like a map or a GPS, we had to get off the highway and figure out where we were and what was happening to this road and us on the road. Getting late, I decided not to go...

Arrived very late and was made welcome by the staff. The room was spotlessly mclean, quiet and ready for me. The entrance did seem a little dated in style but comfortable and clean. Bed large and comfortable. Full facilities, very large tv. Bathroom spotless and a lovely cup of coffee available in the room. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Short...
