Positive Reviews

Great Location, Decent Value

This is a handy spot for Princeton University and the surrounding area. Walking distance to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and many other stores and restaurants. If you don't mind a drive of less than thirty minutes, you might enjoy Six Flags and Hurricane Harbor, Sesame Place (for children) or Grounds for Sculpture park. There's a free shuttle to Palmer Square as well (please coordinate pickup times carefully), as well as great Wi-Fi, a gym, and a business center which allows printing. The price is right for this area and provisions.

Substantial Breakfast

This breakfast is a must for anyone with a busy day ahead - the staff here will set you up properly with eggs, pastries, juices, waffles, fresh fruit, bagels, potatoes, sausages, cereal and yogurt - on top of fresh morning coffee!

Friendly Staff

Helpful and courteous, this staff will surely charm you from arrival to departure.

Negative Reviews

Shuttle Service Sorrows

Get clarity on the exact locations, pickup and drop-off times of the shuttle. Some have had driver mix-ups and missed their ride.

Low Quality

Issues of quality are reflected throughout the premises. Hallways need to be cleaned and carpeting changed as it smells very damp and moldy. Many areas seem outdated and poorly lit.

Room Disappointments

Beds are uncomfortable and towels are thin. Shower heads are poorly attached and have weak pressure. air conditioning barely functions and the bath tubs drain so slowly, you may end up standing in dirty water during your shower. Keurig coffee makers may or may not work, so don't get your hopes up. Sometimes the pool is closed without notice.
