It was totally unacceptable! We were supposed to stay 6 nights and stayed 3 nights. Second night, guests were playing full blast music until 11pm in the pool area. Reception was called. Nothing done! 2 nights same story all night until 6am! Security is just not doing its job and guests are simply out of control.

Totally disgusting. This is not a hotel it’s a motel and I’m being kind trust me. I don’t even know where to start. So when you first check in they make you give an upfront $250 security deposit. Next the hallway rugs are all stained. One door was being held open by a dirt laundry basket and another by a dirty face cloth wedge under it. Stains everywhere in our room. Bathroom dirty. Listen moms out there it is not safe for your children to stay here. Sonesta ES means extended stay which mean there are really weird people who are actually living here. It is not safe to walk around. You know those crappy motels on the side of a highway. Well this one just photoshopped their website pictures really well. Not one looks like this place. I spent $300 on two sleeping bags, two pillows/pillow cases and two comforters because I refused to sleep in the bed. I bought another $50 worth of cleaning products. Why I didn’t leave? They had $600 of my money that was non refundable. We were just passing through so we just did our best to get through it. Never never again

An awful experience for a joyous occasion . Everything is run down here. The furniture in the two bedroom suite looked like odds and ends leftover from other rooms: mismatched cheap vinyl couch and chair and mismatched sized wooden stools sitting in front of them. Bathrooms were disgusting with hairs on the floors and urine stains on the door. (See pics) The breakfast is awful—brown bananas and green oranges. The high rating is from the past when the place was new. Nothing has been maintained. And their picture of what a room looks like is laughable. Even the attendant at the front desk was aghast when I showed her the bathroom pictures. I would never stay here again.

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay. The unit was clean and spacious. The kitchenette was very well equipped. We did not go for the breakfast, so can't comment on that. The only one complain we had that the slippers have not been provided. There are no any shower caps or tooth brushes. (Even the cheap hotels in Asia would provide such items in every room). Make sure that you pack those small items in your bags. Regardless of small inconveniences, we wold stay there again.

In addition to a bleak breakfast, the hotel only cleans rooms weekly(!), supposedly due to covid (despite it not transmitting on surfaces). Shame because the rooms are spacious but no housekeeping is unacceptable for the room rate. Also wifi didn’t work in the room, and rather than the front desk fixing it, I was told to call the service provider myself.

It has been a trying year for all of us with the inception of the Pandemic and continuing its path into December. We have confronted Covid 19, and stared it in the face. Today we have the hope of the proverbial vaccines. As WE know one of the industries that took a huge hit were the Hotels and Hospitality worlds. I stayed at the Princeton ES Suites in Mid March, and the Sonesta Staff quickly adjusted to our new reality of masks, social distancing, with cleanliness and hygiene practices that have always been part of the Sonesta protocol. Most of us left to where we were from, and we shuttered into our routines in our now familiar virtual world. I was not able to leave México until July and return to Princeton. It is comforting to know that a place like the Sonesta ES Suites Princeton did not loose a beat, and rose up to the challenge: adjusting and excelling in our "Brave New World". The Sonesta was immaculate as usual with an emphasis on cleaning, social distancing, and great service. I felt SAFE and the Sonesta staff never complained while meeting this phenomena head on. I made another trip in August through mid October and more guests were back, and obviously coming in like a "Field of Dreams": If you build it right and treat the people well, they will come to this "Clean Well Lighted Place" that the Sonesta is. I returned to the Princeton Sonesta in December, and the Christmas, Hanukkah, and Holiday decorations were beautiful and appropriate.I have been staying at the Princeton Sonesta for years, and I know everyone by name, and they should all be recognized including their fearless leader and Manager , Bobbie Lal, and Adam her ever excellent Assistant Manager, and all of the Reception and Sales Staff who are consummate pros including: Heiday, Bernie, Tobin, Suren and Katerina and of course Housekeeping lead by Nicole and Carlos, and followed by Aida, and Maria and Greg and George in Maintenance working Tirelessly! And as THEY all Know: I'll be back soon to the Sonesta ES in Princeton.

Very nice, spacious rooms. They had taken some serious steps to keep the property clean and santised during the COVID Pandemic. From clear policies that mandate a room will be unused for 48 hours after every checkout to having disposable pens/screens at front desk, they took all efforts to make sure my worries about staying in a hotel during this pandemic are addressed. The staff as always, is very helpful. The rooms are big, clean and have all the facilities needed to let this be a "home away from home". I've stayed numerous times here (about 20 nights in last year), and haven't had a single reason to complain- ever! That's not been the case with any other place. Even the Sonesta a few miles away at South Brunswick left me frustrated; but not this property. It's been an absolute delight staying here. I highly recommend this property
