My experience at this property was awful. The staff was not equipped to handle basic guest requests in a timely fashion and when presented with problems or complaints the staff has quick and snarky responses rather than a very simple “how can me make this better?” Unacceptably noisy guests and pets in the rooms also added to the overall lack of service. Do not stay here.
We made a last minute decision to go away for the weekend, and decided to stay at the Nassau inn. It was a great choice for our family. We booked a suite since the prices were so reasonable, and we were very pleased with the amenities. The room was spacious and clean. The suite had a mini fridge and sink area along with a table for eating and couches for relaxing. They were very careful about Covid precautions which made us feel safe. The location is smack in the middle of tons of shops and restaurants. And you could also venture a bit outside the main hub to quieter streets and parks. The receptionist (shareen I think?) was very welcoming and kind. I have nothing negative to say; it was perfect.
Friendly staff, wonderful atmosphere, and beautiful surroundings. Great for couples of all ages and families. A true historic feel within the hotel premises and outside surroundings. Princeton University across the street is a big plus.
My family was kept awake until 1 am by a loud wedding in the hotel. The walls and floors were shaking. The management didn't warn us about this during check-in. In our opinion the management acted irresponsibly, especially since these noise complaints have probably been going on for years.
Location was amazing. Right in the middle of everything with lots of shopping and dining options. Rooms were older but charming. Would definitely stay there again. We went for a sports camp and it was a closer walk from the hotel then it was from the campus parking.
Great location and am sure one time a great property. Very tired rooms, shower curtain rod falling off of wall, holes in bathroom wall, air conditioner unit behind curtains so you had to leave them open to get air. Food in restaurant mediocre at best.
Having not stayed at the Nassau Inn for a decade, I decided to return with my son for a weekend trip. Upon check in we met a young man at the desk who was neither warm nor welcoming. He took the details down, was quite keen on telling us about the parking pass ($20 is reasonable, but I was confident in finding lot parking nearby and the young man did not “know anything about that.” I ended up paying $3.50 for parking nearby). I also realized I had forgotten an iPhone charger and asked for one and was told that I could leave my phone in their back office to use their charger. As a constant traveler, I was surprised this could not be accommodated and surprised by the young man and his colleague’s surprise upon being asked (I later found out that one of the only two modern amenities in the room was an alarm clock with contactless charging, which the young man evidently did not know about or think to mention). Our two queen room was in the building across the street, accessible by a 1970s glass domed walkway that is not air conditioned and thus would be a suitable greenhouse. On a hot day, this was unbearable. Our room presented an opposite problem as it was cooked to 65°. The air conditioner was old and the room was so dry we woke up with sore throats. This was exacerbated by the least comfortable mattresses and pillows I’ve ever slept on and me and my son woke up many times through the night. The bathroom was old and had no drinking glasses and the floor was sticky. So why two dots instead of one? The location is unbeatable. That’s it. I cannot return.…
The hotel has an unbeatable location; the rooms need updating and better standards of cleanliness. The linens/pillows are old The staff was mixed; one concierge was very friendly and helpful the next one to take over the shift was not, maybe he was just having a bad day. When we come again we might explore other options in hopes of better cleanliness.
Comfortable rooms separated by walls that efficiently transmit noise from one room to another. Beware of noise from next door or guests who place their underwear on the hallway floor outside their doors.
The Nassau inn is a great historic building in excellent shape, room was clean with just enough amenities. Yankee Doodle a pleasant informal place with very good food. Can't beat the location, nothing like wandering through downtown Princeton for a weekend.
