Very friendly front desk staff at check in. Room was clean, except for food being left in mini fridge. A tad noisy at times. Beds were comfy. Smaller tv than what you usually see. Didn't go to the restaurant/lounge as it was a bit pricey for the ratings it received.

Stayed here for 2 nights while in Princeton. Nothing much to shout about - it has a lounge/club attached whose patrons can be noisy. Even though the hotel seemed empty - they gave me a room which was quite a hike away. The signs inside the hotel are not clear. One of the exits is right next to a dump...

My friends and I stayed there on February 12, 2014. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The Clarion was clean and comfortable. I would recommend the Clarion to others. The food at the restrautant was very good. Maybe a little pricey but it was affordable.

The service was good and it didnt cost me an arm and a leg... Good value... would use this place again... Varun is one of the managers and he was able to get me what I needed! The Pure restaurant and lounge next door offers a great dining option with plenty of craft beers on tap!

Unbelievable bang for your buck with this hotel. Great wifi, flat screen tv, Keurig coffee maker, clean comfortable beds! Staff were amazing and a very beautiful snow covered courtyard. Also great location, Shopping center with wholefoods, marshals, ect next door and across the road from a trader joes and other places. Rare find in this area for the price.

The staff at this hotel was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the night we stayed the boiler broke so we couldn't take showers and the t.v. wasn't working either. This was disappointing as we had gotten a great price on our stay and I'm in the area frequently to visit my in-laws.

My wife and I with our daughters stayed two nights. If it were not for the fact that we had lots of activity away from the hotel we would have cancelled and booked elsewhere. The floors and halls were very dirty and smelled of smoke, the room marginal. Although the property looks nice from the outside, and is located conveniently,...
