    « Meh... »

    Unimpressive. It's been a week since I stayed at this hotel and the experience was less than memorable. As I recall, everything was just "okay;" nothing special. Breakfast was a little disappointing in that, except for the ubiquitous waffle irons, there were NO hot items available. I also felt that the price charged was too hight for what was offered. The property was undergoing renovations so the dust and debris didn't help and I wasn't particularly comfortable with the lighting in the rear parking lot; I worried that my vehicle might not be safe there overnight. Would I recommend the hotel to a friend? Maybe. But, there are alternatives readily available so I would probably suggest they investigate those first.

    « Unfriendly and rude »

    Went down with me my boyfriend and his daughter for a family trip and to use the inside pool since it's cold out and woke up ate breakfast went back to our room to get all our stuff and pack it in the car put our bathing suits on and the lady at the front desk told us we were not aloud to use the pool because it was ALMOST checkout time now his daughter was in her bathing suit all ready to go even had goggles on and she took them off and started to cry the lady did not care in my opinion they treated us poorly and made a 6 years hysterical cry not so kid friendly! Definitely won't be going back there

    « very friendly staff, pet-friendly hotel »

    We were recently in a wedding nearby, and needed a pet-friendly hotel. The hotel itself is easily accessible and the staff is great. They let us check in early to accommodate our schedule for the wedding, and were always very nice and helpful on the phone. Our room was clean, and it served our purpose perfectly. It was perfect for our one night stay.

    « didnt take the time »

    told the person giving reservation too, that I was going to be checking in late and asked about the pool etc.. never told me we couldn't use after the time etc.. just really unfriendly and upset me since I was bringing my uncle that was 66 years old that has never been away from NY, never has been on vacation, never saw the ocean, and was so excited to use the pool and Jacuzzi and was never able to use it.... he was pretty well upset and discouraged.... I wanted to ring someones neck to be honest!!!!!

    « Dishonest company. Do not trust them with your business! »

    Picked this hotel as a stop between Great Wolf Lodge and Six Flags New Jersey. The hotel was obviously updating as construction equipment was all around. There was a hole in the wall that we noticed upon our arrival at 11pm but at that point were too exhausted to complain. We checked out before 8am. We were charged a $50 fee for the hole that was there when we arrived. I had the following afternoon sent them an email complaining about the hole in the wall and the exposed wires under the AC unit. I spoke to Stephanie, assistant manager and Dawn who were no help and argued about the damage and lied saying I had left my children alone in the room, because every parent leaves their 12, 8 and 1 year old alone while there are drunk people arguing and banging on doors outside while it's the middle of the night. Charge were never reversed. I highly suggest that if you are looking for somewhere to stay you look elsewhere or else you may have a similar experience.

    « Great pool/breakfast..rooms in need of update »

    Rooms are in desperate need of paint job, curtains were filthy. Gave me the creeps, but breakfast and pool made up for it. Pool was warm and relaxing and breakfast had a lot of variety and fresh items. Also staff was friendly and welcoming

    « Great Family Hotel »

    My family and I decided to stay here to be in close range of six flags which we decided to visit twice during our 4 day stay. The hotel was clean, pool was great, breakfast was awesome, and we recommend this to all families!

    Excellent quiet location. Parking available in front of your room on ground floor. Breakfast better than average Best Western. Very close to Interstate exit. Big Wawa across the street. Very comfortable motel. Interesting round pool, check in, breakfast architecture.

    « Just what we needed »

    The front desk was friendly and helpful. The stay was comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic and the indoor pool is always fun. There is also a Wawa right next door. We stay here every time we go to Sesame Place, which is 15 minutes away. We have stayed here on 4 separate visits, and each time was great.

    « Comfortable stay at Best Western Hotel »

    I stayed one night at this hotel, with my two teenage sons and teenage daughter. The room was comfortable, clean, and well kept. The next morning we had continental breakfast, and swam in the indoor pool and tried the whirlpool. Both were luke warm. We would of enjoyed the pool/whirlpool more if they were heated, We stayed at this hotel, since it was only 12 miles away from Great Adventure Amusement park.

    I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and always have had a good experience. The staff is always kind and pleasant in their service and the location can not be any better, being located right off the Jersey Turnpike. Would defiantly stay here again.

    « 2nd stay at this hotel- great value »

    We happened to stay in this area two years in a row on our way to NC. The motel is standard fare in the rooms- beds are pretty comfy, with a separate sink area both inside the bathroom and outside in the room which was helpful with kids! The security lock on the door was broken which was not ideal. The pool is indoor and good for kids. The breakfast is good, not usualy busy which is a plus. MYO waffles and pancakes (never seen that before! cool!) and delicious oatmeal along with hardboiled eggs, pastries, and cereal. VERY nice desk staff and clean overall. We would stay here again!

    « Budget hotel »

    This hotel is one of the cheapest in the area and I wasn't thrilled that it had a door directly outside however the room was clean and comfortable and I didn't feel unsafe which was my concern. Breakfast was good also ............,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Hotel is very nice, clean, and decent sized rooms with comfortable beds and pleasant decor. Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful staff. Easy off/on access to NJ Turnpike Exit 7. Exceptionally good free breakfast.

    « Comfortable not Spetacular »

    Comfy rooms, decent location , room sort of hot , bed was nice , good enough for me on short pass thru trip. It could have more restaurants near this location, but the staff was pleasant, and the stay was without incident

    « Very nice stay »

    The Lady who checked us in was very helpful. She even told us, that we have enough points for a free night. Not any of the other Best Western receptionists did this, even they have seen, that we have enough points. Thank you to this receptionist. Location is convenient. Everything else was fine also.

    « Old / awful facilities »

    This is a very old hotel. The layout and facilities are awful. If it were not for the helpful staff, this would have been completely awful. I can't believe I paid that same amount to stay here as a newer/nicer hotel. The place should be torn down and built new. It is well past it's time.

    « Family trip to Six Flags »

    Took my nephews for a Six Flags Great Adventure. Hotel is about 15-20 mins from park. On arrival, assigned room wasn't cleaned. Desk apologized & immediately provided another which was perfect. (Hotel is U shaped, and highest numbered rooms are near busy street.) Room quite satisfactory for our needs. A/C worked well.

    4
    « Perfectly Adequate »

    There are such mixed reviews of this hotel, so we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Yes, it's a budget hotel (and the price didn't reflect that, but the area is expensive), and yes, it's an older style hotel but the beds were sensational, the pillows were great and the staff were super friendly and helpful. You will welcomed well here. The hair dryer in our room only blew cold air and there was no room safe, which is why I couldn't give it full marks but everything else was fine for overnight comfort. The wifi is free and so is breakfast. There is also a pool and laundry facilities. With a few eating places nearby and the Highway right there, it's a convenient location too. We would stay again.

    « They forgot to Maintain their buildings »

    The whirlpool/Jacuzzi had nine jet but only one slightly worked Lots of rusted railing stairs ect Large chip in tub someone tried to repair but it was still rusted. Room was overpriced since the Ramada across the street was thirty dollars cheaper. We choose this one for the hot tub and indoor pool which was poor at best.

    « Great Stay »

    After canceling a reservation across the street with Ramada, I walked in Best Western the young lady had me in a room in less than 30 minutes. When I travel to NJ I will stay there again. Very polite and she work with me to get me the best deal.

    « Trip to NJ »

    Had a very pleasant stay in this Best Western. We have stayed here before and had great service so we use Best Western all the time now. We traveled cross country to Arizona this past year and stayed at Best Westerns all across the country. They were all very nice hotels.l

    « Average Stay »

    The room was exactly as advertised. The price was reasonable.The animal smell in the room was awful. The staff at the front desk was warm and welcoming. If they can get rid of the pet smells this hotel would be great.

    « Small, clean,Friendly »

    The palace is old but well maintain, the front desk staff was very friendly and pleasant will all our request. The room are small but comfortable with two sink, Micro/Ref and they have a small pool but good for family to have fun! The stairs need to be upgraded to go on second floor. Small and clean for family!

    « Friendly Staff, convenient location »

    Manager and staff very accommodating. Have had several extended stays there. Breakfast is great and doesn't run out... Pool is clean and open year round. Rooms very clean. Manager will give you a special deal if you want an upgrade or for extended stay. Great Wifi and Cable. Restaurants all around.... Great hotel for a great little city. Free Laundry machine use.

    « Nice Value »

    Polite staff, the rooms are nice and clean and I stay here every time I visit home(NJ). The price is great for what is offered....the king bed was surprisingly comfy and the shower was nice and hot. I was given a room on the more empty side of the hotel, which means I had an incredible amount of peace and quiet, sans the highway noises. But the big fan/ac/heat unit drowned out the majority of street noise for me. Check out was quick and easy, as was leaving the housekeeper a tip. The person definitely cared about having the room clean before I checked in. If you don't want to spend a lot of money on hotel digs, I would suggest here.

    « Great acess to the turnpike »

    stayed here on business one night. Great staff with clean rooms and easy access to the Jersey turn pike. Not a lot to eat close buy but the hotel amenities were great. Nice indoor pool!! The mattresses could use some updating.

    « the room was pleasing »

    i came for Friday-Monday as a 'relaxing-get-away' and to 'see-other-sights'... i mainly stay at BEST WESTERN hotels throughout my travels...BEST WESTERN is my primary choice of hotel stays....the room was more than i expected...the jacuzzi was awesome...the swimming pool was nice and 'heated'... unfortunately i only had a chance to visit it once during my stay as i was kept busy with other travels during my stay... i would definitely book this location again

    « Acceptable accomadations »

    This hotel was clean, albeit a bit of a smokey smell in the hallway and had everything we needed for a weekend stay. We really enjoyed the pool. The staff was more than hospitable, Very accommodating and served with a smile!!

    « Overnight stay »

    Overall the stay over night was ok for the price. The room was clean but smelled like smoke for a nonsmoking room! It was a little noisy outside in the morning making it difficult to sleep in. If you don't mind those things then this hotel will do fine r the price!

    2
    « Old and tired »

    Either need to reduce the price a lot or do an extensive renovation. We stay exclusively in BW and most of the time the hotels are less expensive and better quality than this. This hotel is old and tired. The room furnishings have been updated, the bed is comfortable but our bathroom needed renovating. Turned on the heat and an odd smell came out, it was too noisy anyway so turned it off. The smell of chlorine from the pool while eating breakfast is overwhelming and kind of gross actually. It permeates the whole area including reception.

    « Not up to Best Western standards »

    We stayed here one night on our way home from VA to MA...what a mistake. The lobby was nice and the girl that checked us in was very nice. We were in Rm 305...a smoking room which is what we wanted. When I asked where the elevator was, I was told "No elevators...just stairs". Having MS, I was a little hesitant but no choice. The stairs were, to say the least, scary! They are totally rusted and looked like they could fall apart at any time. The room was small...2 queen beds. There were stains on the bathroom ceilings and walls. There were no ashtrays so I called the front desk and asked for 1. I was told "We are out of ashtrays...they are on order...just use a cup". The beds were very soft and uncomfortable...neither of us slept well at all. We did not go to the breakfast...we just wanted to get on the road. We almost always stay at Best Westerns when traveling but this is one that we will not stay at again.

    « OUTSTANDING PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE »

    The Management and staff are a very professional and courteous group. The facility is above and beyond the normal hotel experience. I want to commend all staff for there un-waiving desire to please the customer and the food facility/breakfast is excellent.

    « Just okay »

    This is not a destination hotel by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a good location in terms of proximity to the highway for travel. Room was small but clean, and the bathroom was tiny with inadequate lighting. Best part of the hotel was the continental breakfast.

    5
    « Very comfortable »

    Motel was located within just a few minutes of the NJ Turnpike, and historical Bordentown. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. They had great recommendations for nearby restaurants. Breakfast was quite good. Very pleasant experience.

    « OK for an Overnight Stay »

    We called ahead to ensure the indoor pool was up and operational and had an amiable discussion with the receptionist. Were able to get a discounted rate, which did not show up on multiple search engines. The night and daytime staff were warm and friendly. The rooms (stayed in 228) were a bit worn and there were cracks in the bathtub, along with a somewhat loose bathroom wall outlet. The door needed to be slammed to ensure it was locked. The complimentary breakfast did not serve hot items (aside from waffles/pancakes from self-serve maker); however, it was well stocked and the foods offered were fresh. The juice machine was out of order. A Wi-Fi password was issued at check-in, but we did not attempt access. There were two computer stations in the lobby. The indoor pool & whirlpool were clean and the water warm; however, there were several areas where water was dripping from the roof & door areas (the outside temp was in the teens). The one inconvenient drawback was the lobby, pool, and breakfast areas were in a building separate from the lodging rooms. This meant that you had to either change clothes in the bathroom after using the pool or wrap up and walk back to your room, which was inconvenient in freezing/inclement weather. The location made it a little tricky to get to due to the lack of nearby U-turn areas. It was OK for an overnight stay.

    « Great Staff »

    I always try to book with the Best Western in Bordentown when I have to be in NJ for many reasons. I have to be in NJ on an average of one weekend a month and try to always stay there. The Room is always clean, the manager Dawn is always accomdating, all of the staff is friendly and many options for breakfast. Great place to stay. Steam room is great and I look forward to it every month.

    « One of the better places in Bordentown »

    I've stayed at The Best Western at least 3 times. When I've lost power or had work done on the apt I have stayed here. Yes, it's dated and probably could use a total overhaul to make it modern. This is only one of about 5-6 motels located directly off the Turnpike in Bordentown. The majority of people who stay at these places are truckers. The room was clean, smelled ok and the bed was ok. There is free WiFi access which was pretty fast. When I was there there was also a washer and dryer. The rooms are adequate for a 1 night stay. It's not luxurious. I had my parents stay across the street in another motel. That place had a dead cockroach in the bathroom, reeked of smoke and was filthy. There are a couple of higher end places off of 206. Or if you want a more modern facility with more ammedities, there are relatively new places off of 95s in Ewing or travel to Princeton. This is by far one of the better places in Bordentown.

    « Poor Quality »

    The check in process was bad, we arrived at check in and was told rooms were not available. We came back 6 hours later and had to wait in lobby for over 20 minutes because no one was at the front desk. When someone came he had no shirt on and said he was the only one working. The breakfast food was not good and very poor quality. The one thing is bed was comfortable. From the outside the hotel is old and dingy looking. The rooms appeared to have some updating done but needed more. The room appeared clean but I was not sure based on the hotels lack of attention to the guest. I will not stay here again. I was with a group and we wanted to all stay together, but going forward I will not compromise the quality I expect. For the price in that area it was only $15 less than Hampton, it was not worth to save $15.

    5
    « Weekly business stays »

    Close to 175 weekly, one night stays, over the last 3 plus years. Have never had a problem. Dawn and the entire staff do an outstanding job. Look forward to staying weekly as long as I travel in the Jersey area. I stay Best Western 100-105 nights a year in New Jersey and continue to do so.

    « Best Tip I Can Provide - Don't Stay Here! »

    The service, upon checking in, from Ben was the highlight of the stay. Everything else went downhill. That said...the bathroom looked clean. The shower tiles were cracked, the fabric on shower curtain was torn...in multiple places. There was dirt, stuff on the carpeting all around the baseboard area. Everywhere, it had not been handled. The bed was horrendous. It felt like I was sleeping on a cement box. I slept in it one night. I was so exhausted after driving 500 miles, I just needed to rest. My hip was dislocated from how hard it was. Seriously dislocated. For the next night, I bought a high air mattress just so I could sleep and hopefully not damage my hip any further. The bed was good. The wall shaking from the banging next door...not so good. On my check out day, I began packing my car very early in the morning, before sunrise. The parking lot was kind of dark in the back. Definitely not well-lit. As I was taking items out to my car, I twisted my ankle between the sidewalk and parking lot. Trip to the emergency room with a fractured ankle now in an air cast with crutches. Had the lighting been better, I would have seen the dip in the pavement. I left items in the room. I went to the emergency room to get my ankle handled. The hotel decided to charge me for another night. They charged my credit card for a full night that I wasn't even registered for. This is credit card fraud. My card company has been notified. Needless to say, the stay at this hotel was a complete disaster. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you look elsewhere because this hotel has nothing good to offer to exhausted travelers looking for a great hotel. Don't bother staying here.

    The rooms are dirty and the beds are worn out. Time to update the rooms and make them fresh again. Never tried the food after seeing the rooms. I was let down as a Diamond member. This property reminded me of a hotel with a number in the name. It sucked.

    « Good value for the money »

    Great staff, Hanna at the front desk was friendly and helpful with where to eat or in our case where to get take out from. Breakfast was good and fresh. Coffee was decent. Pool was relaxing and clean . Only drawback was having to go out in the cold to get back to our room. Rooms were up to date and clean. Food within walking distance. Off major highways . Very happy will return next time I'm in the area .

    I stayed here October 9-10-11 of this year. The motel is well kept and the room we had was very clean. Had a small coffee pot in the room and comfortable beds.

    Decent hotel with nice breakfast. They have a pretty decent looking indoor swimming pool, in which I did not not use on this trip. I would stay there again. The only issue I had was with the bathroom lighting, it didn't come on fully until about 30 min after I first flipped the switch on. The bed, which was King was super comfy, nice variety of pillows. Overall a decent for a standard, no frills hotel

    « Did their best »

    The staff tried hard, but the physical layout of the hotel was creepy and did not give us a feeling of security. Hotel was ok for a one night stop over. The facility was old could use some substantial updating. Whirpool was a "cold whirlpool" something i had not heard of and this certainly added to my dissappointment.
