    « More than what I paid for »

    The quality of service and rooms were more than what we expected for the price that we paid. We even had breakfast for the day we stayed. The close proximity to mall and other restarants made it easy for us to go out and eat. Kids did enjoy playing outside and the staff were friendly while my kids were out in the parking out. We asked for additional towels and we got them.

    « Decent Hotel for decent price »

    Friendly staff and clean room; though the room could be updated technology wise. A bigger closet would've been nice as well, at least to keep suit jackets inside the closet without having to open the door. Continental breakfast was plentiful and varied.

    « Helpful Friendly Staff »

    Excellent location, very comfortable beds, fast wifi, clean and spacious rooms, friendly and helpful staff, convenient parking, efficient check-in and check-out, tasty breakfast, outstanding value. Feels like home.


    I enjoyed my stay very much. I knew I had to check out a little later than 11 because I was going to sleep super late and the nice person in the front desk gave me some extra time to get ready and check out . I was really thankful.

    « An excellent find! »

    We stayed there for 16 days and it was such a good experience. I'd totally recommend this to everyone who enjoy of staying in a clean, spacious, quiet and very nice place. The personal is so kind, always willing to help us out with our concerns, special thanks to Raj and his wife from room service who were great with us recommending places to visit around and making us feel like home. I will definitely come back here in a future visit.

    « My Stay »

    The rooms were clean and the staff was nice. Since I don't eat pork, it would have been nice to have other meat options and fresh fruit for for those who have dietary restrictions. Checking in and out was a bit long. The air conditioning unit was very loud in the room. Other than that, I thought it was a good value for the money.

    « Horrifying »

    We arrived at 1 am having booked through The representative said she didn't know if they actually had a room because she was dealing with "crises on the ground." Turned out they did have the room I had paid for. She was very good, but when we got to the room, the sheets were rumpled, hairs and stains on the sheets. Requested another set of sheets--took 45 minutes. Finally went to sleep at 2 am after changing the sheets ourselves. Never again.

    « very good »

    Very good hotel, however the room should be clean up better. The towels were worn out and dirty, but the room service changed them on request. Breakfast the same every day (scrambled eggs, sausages, oat flakes, yoghurt, fruits, tosts, bagels, pastry, waffles, coffee, tea, juice), but everyone finds something to eat.

    « Not too bad »

    I pulled into town late Wednesday night and needed to find a hotel. I haven't stayed at a Best Western in a number of years so I decided to give it a try. The front office was dimly lit and i wasn't sure they were even open. When i opened the door I was greeted by a young man that was extremely present and accommodating. The room was a little out dated but was clean and neat. The bed was a little firm for my liking but overall it was pretty good. I will be traveling back to the Monmouth Junction area in the future and will likely stay at the BW again.

    « Truly is a great Best Western »

    What a wonderful 5 day stay. The staff was just outstanding . The rooms were very comfortable and the price included a full breakfast. I would recommend this Best Western to any one that needs a place to stay in the Princeton, Monmouth Junction New Jersey area

    « what happened/?? »

    the bed was fine.. everything was okay until i found black mold in the bathroom. The front desk was told, and the reaction was like.. hmm, dum dee dum dum....either he didnt care or he knew it was there and still allowed us to use the room.

    « A Nice Stay »

    My family had a great time staying in this Best Western. Comfortable bed, clean and spacious room. Good breakfast. Hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating. Will definitely recommend to others.

    « very comfortable »

    our stay at this hotel was brief but enjoyable. we stayed at this facility before and decided to stay again. The morning breakfast choices provided were tasty and enjoyable. I would recommend this hotel to friends visiting this area.

    « Last minute find, great bargin »

    Needed to land in a clean hotel at the last minute during a business trip in Princeton. Wanted internet access and breakfast included. Got it all at this BW, Got a great price as well through I return again.

    « Nice rooms, small breakfast area »

    The rooms were standard but nice (higher quality sheets than I've had at other Best Westerns). Even though it was an outside entrance, we felt safe and the noise from the highway wasn't an issue. The breakfast area was painfully small and there were people waiting to get a seat. We eventually climbed over people and got food to take back up to our room.

    « Worst stay we have ever had with any hotel chain! »

    We stayed in this Best Western for one night in the end of June 2016. We had 2 rooms booked that were connected. When we went to check in, they gave our room away to someone else that had checked in. They couldn't correct it and wanted to put us on the second floor. We have 2 small children and walking up the stairs with everything is anything but possible or convenient (they didn't have elevators). So they put us in the "test" room. Which was horrible. It was barely clean, smelled, a hole in the ceiling in the bathroom and was on the opposite side of the motel from where our family was staying. They didn't apologize for the mistake, they just said they were training new people and that's how it happened. When we checked out, my husband signed the receipt for the stay. They never ended up charging us. They charged my brother in law (our other guests) twice for our room. When he called to get it corrected, they told him they needed my husbands CC info (which they already had on file) but they apparently couldn't find it. 3 1/2 weeks later, the charge showed up on our debit card. My husband called to find out what happened because they never reversed my brother in laws card. The manager was anything but helpful. They had attitudes and refused to do anything for us to fix it. Finally after a 1/2 conversation with him, they compensated 20% of our stay. Hardly covered the inconvenience we had for the entire time. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Pay an extra $50 a night and go somewhere else in the area!

    « False smoking accusation »

    Watch your bank statements after staying here, we were falsely accused and unknowingly charged $250 for smoking in the room, and we are NOT smokers. We did NOT smoke nor did we smell smoke in the room when we checked out. After an unsuccessful resolution with the manager, we have contacted the bank to try to resolve it.

    « Quality »

    Great Service, comfortable. I highly recommend this Hotel for family travels. Exceptional experience, especially after traveling on the road for hours. Great price and location, will stay here again when I'm in the area.

    « Great Value »

    Excellent value. Staff was concerned about doing a good job, which I found refreshing. I was there for business, and required reasonable internet. I found this to be very good with very good bandwidth and outstanding reliability.The room was nice, and the lobby and exterior very nice. The location was quite convenient for me to get either to points north or west, which, conveniently, was precisely what I needed.

    « mixed up reservation »

    Very helpful freindly the reservation was done wrong but they corrected it when we got there. We had specified a first floor room stating we had handicapp person in party, but was given second floor room. There is no elevator at this hotle. WE made on line they told us they didn't receive any of that information when resversation was placed.

    « Outside Entrance Best Western »

    Outside Entrance to ALL rooms. No desk or desk chair to do office work, no comfortable room furniture. Woman walked a Non- Service dog directly thru dining facility. Coffee was cold during a good part of the day. Breakfast could use more selection. Friendly Staff.

    « very good »

    It is clean and nice. The staff are very cooperative. Pricewise it is reasonable. Location is Good. room has all required facilities. Bathroom size is good as compare to other hotels. Over all it is very good.

    « Good value. Friendly staff. »

    The front desk help was really friendly at this property. I met the owner one morning too. He was also very friendly. The hotel is simple. It a good place for the money. It's right on the highway but it's still fairly peaceful.

    « Good value »

    This motel is a very good value. It is very convenient to Princeton through Kingston and down Nassau Street. The breakfasts are good, the beds are good and the staff is very helpful. I have used it for several years.

    « Great Hotel - Great Staff »

    This is an excellent hotel, great staff, and nice full breakfast. Nice rooms with internet! We traveled for business and pleasure, and needed a warm and friendly place to stay. This was the perfect spot for us to rest and relax during a busy time.

    « Above average affordable motel room with 2 beds »

    Clean, large, good shampoos/conditioners (Pantene) and soaps. The floor rug, beds, and sheets were clean. Bathroom was clean, too. Not just "appearing clean". Nothing crazy amazing but really good and solid.

    « Rooms are nice.. clean and nice maintainace »

    Rooms are really good.. worth a try.. clean... good maintenance... just opposite to BestBuy.. You need anything you can go to DunkinDonuts, target, starbucks, subway all walk away.. alot of place for parking..

    « Nice night »

    The room was just right for my needs. The room was Clean, comfortable and close to where I needed to be. The staff was very nice, and helpful. This was an easy choice, the value was excellent for a night's stay!

    « Suprisingly nice hotel »

    We stayed at this Best Western in April 2016 for 1 night because of a family function. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was quiet and clean. We had free wi-fi, a mini fridge, microwave, hairdryer and a fairly comfortable bed. The breakfast was great with a waffle maker, eggs, sausage, fruit, yogurt, breads, cereal, coffee, tea and more. I would go back and I would recommend it to all.

    « Visiting Princeton NJ »

    Visiting Princeton U. with child. Nice hotel for the price and included breakfast. Room was clean and spacious. Close to the campus. The only complaint has nothing to do with the hotel. There is a cement divider down the center of the road. Only right turns can be made. Advertising this would be nice. We arrived at 11pm at night and the signs stating this are not illuminated. We almost were killed. Princeton is awesome (except for that road).

    « Weekend Stay »

    Good and nice hotel to stay in this price range. Good continental breakfast option .. Room had everything and arranged nicely however we had issue with 1 room's shower not working with water logging. Post complain no compensation to adjust this discomfort.

    « Old and Rundown »

    In serious need of a complete remodel. Stains on ceiling. Stiff dirty carpet. Peeling paint in room. Door gap so large that the light coming in at night was a distraction (not to mention the bugs that could easily get in). Glad it wasn't cold. I would have froze. Noise from Rt1. Breakfast was terrible (powdered microwave eggs were still cold, limited fruit). Never staying there again.

    « Best Western revew »

    Nice and clean hotel, the people were nice. Bathroom is clean, the parking lot was good and it was not filled up.wen I arrived they treated me instantly and they were very nice to me.If I stay in New Jersey I would come back to this hotel again.

    « Best lodging I had while I was in the area. »

    Due to some unforeseen travel changes I ended up in a part of New Jersey I had never been to before for a few weeks more than I expected. I stayed at quite a few different hotels and motels and this one ended up being by far my favorite. The staff is incredibly courteous. Like they go WAYYY above and beyond what they need to do to take care of you. I had had some car trouble and they let me check in early with barely a question asked. That was just the beginning of many different times I was impressed by everyone I came into contact with during my 5 day stay. The room was very spacious and quite clean, they gave me some extra pillows when I asked due to some major back problems I suffer. Good TV, good Internet speed and connection, excellent breakfast with yummy eggs, bagels and sausage among other things, but honestly the shining star of the whole place was the amazing courtesy and efficiency of the staff. I don't have enough good things to say about them. I know that this may sound like one of those reviews the staff makes themselves, but I'm being completely legit. I was genuinely impressed and touched at the level of care they showed me. It was nice not just feeling like another body filling a bed. I felt like they really did care that I was comfortable and happy and that's rare in this business. I'd recommend this little place to anyone! Tell them Shannon sent you!

    « great spot »

    I decided to stay here because it wasn't too far from the turnpike, and not too far from the city. It wasn't hard to find. There's a target and few other stores adjacent from the hotel. Also gas cheaper in this neighborhood.

    « Friendly Staff »

    Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, free breakfast and internet. Rooms have fridge, microwave. Some even have Jacuzzi bath tubs. Good location, just north of Princeton. Great value for the money.

    « Everything Was Great Except For Breakfast »

    Stayed here one night while taking in some auto racing in Trenton. Very nice facility, easy to find, right of the main drag. Rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable, and staff was very helpful with any questions we had. The only small complaint would be the breakfast they serve. We arrived about 40 minutes before breakfast was over. At that time, most of the items were empty, and we were left with only a choice of cold cereal and waffles. Not once in 40 minutes did we see anyone that attempted to refill the eggs, bagels, or anything else they were supposed to have available. Not a huge deal, but it would have been nice to have more choices. All in all a very nice stay though and I would return here again. I filled out the review Best Western emailed me, and the owner contacted me personally, thanking me for my review. That shows me they care, which is half the battle.

    « Great value »

    The hotel had nce decor and a tasty breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only issue I had was that we could hear some noise through the door connecting to the next room. The beds are very comfortable and clean.

    « Recommend this hotel for your business/leisure trip »

    Front desk staff is excellent and always looking for your best stay in this hotel. This is supported by the housekeeping staff. Every time, I came back to the room and found everything was brought back to original settings. This location of this hotel is also good. A strip mall just opposite to it. I recommend this hotel to everyone and the price also has comparable pricing.

    « Good room, good price, need better plumbing »

    Hot water issues in shower. Need to fix pressure in the shower. snow storm during stay. parking lot not plowed. noisy neighbors but did quiet down at night. And why do I need a minimum of 200 characters to explain my visit. That is moronic trip advisor. make reviews short and to the point.

    « Recently renovated, pleasant, attractive and very very clean. »

    The room has the quality and amenities of a much more expensive accommodation, especially for being very close to Princeton. In my experience it is the best value in the area. Breakfast was excellent, bed was very comfortable, bath is a whirlpool, staff is pleasant and helpful. They even cleaned the snow off my car! I was very pleased, and sorry I could not stay another day or two just to rest. Thank you !!!

    « Snow Storm Stay »

    I have stayed at this location several times in the past during storms. I stayed at the Best Western during the blizzard in order to be able to get to work the next day. The check in staff was very friendly and told me of the changes that had occurred since the last time I stayed. He pointed out where my room was and told me if I had any questions or problems to simply give him a call. The room was clean and comfortable and although the heat took awhile to get to a comfortable temperature, it worked well. Checkout was quick and simple.

    « Excellent value near Princeton, NJ »

    I have stayed at this motel a number of times on business trips to Princeton. It is an excellent value for the price, just a little farther away from town than some other motels, but not a real difference. Rooms are equipped with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Beds are comfortable. Consistent high level of cleanliness and other services. Staff friendly and accommodating--also consistent over several stays in the past 3 years.

    « Great value and clean, comfortable experience »

    The staff were nice and helpful. Clean and tidy throughout the hotel and in the room. Fridge and freeezer actually worked unlike other hotels. Across street from Target with a Starbucks in it as well as Dunkin Donuts. 10 minutes or less from Princeton and very easy to get to. A great value for a no frills and reliable place.

    « Good Location - Good Value »

    This motel is located on US 1, just north of Princeton. It is the best value hotel in the area and it has free breakfast and free wifi. And the front desk staff are friendly and helpful.Some of the rooms even have a jacuzzi tub!

    « New Years Trip »

    I had an excellent experience at Best Western in NJ. I would recommend anyone to may a reservation and stay here. The rooms are clean, the staff is extremely friendly, and the rates are reasonable. The coffee is good too.

    « Very good! »

    We arrived very late but still got a very pleasant welcome. The hotel was very good. People were welcoming, the room was clean and large enough for the family, breakfast was great. Check in and check out were fast and efficient. Thank you!

    « Excellent Staff »

    This review is to thank the front desk staff especially. My company paid for the rooms for me to stay for training from 2011.7~ 2011.10. I sometimes stayed late and worked all the way till the morning. The senior gentleman from the front desk was very nice. He and his wife were always great to talk to, very nice people. He made really great waffles. Thank you guys! All the best to you.

    « Convenient Location - Fair Price - Friendly Staff »

    The free in-room wifi and buffet breakfast along with the good location, comfortable beds and helpful staff make this a good place to stay in the Princeton area. Some of the rooms even have jacuzzi tubs!

    « Stay Elsewhere if you can »

    This Best Western is in need of better cleaning and remodeled rooms. I do not recommend it at all. There are many better places in the area. There is little maintenance done on the rooms from what I can see. The staff was ok. I don't understand why a motel would not make an effort to be clean, well maintained and modern.

    « Clean Motel »

    Many of the previous reviews were correct. This is a motel with exterior doors. The hotel price is good and the motel is very clean. Breakfast and lobby area nice.The motel is under construction and there are ladders and construction material all over.The hotel is on busy hwy 1 which requires u turns.There is a great side road which takes you right into Princeton. Manager is very attentive.

    « Upset »

    It was missing a couple of things and the forgot to give us the wake up call that we had asked for. The shower was complicated to put on and off. The floors and doors creeked . Not enough towels. Only two. No clock readio in the room and we had to ask for one and they did not seem to care about that as well. We have stayed here before and it was not a good experience this time when all the other times we had a great experience.

    « Reservation not honored/ Construction/ Fire hazards »

    I was not given the correct room I had reserved until my 3rd day, and was not advised in advance of the remodeling and construction taking place. All of the furniture was pulled out of the other rooms and piled along the walkway so I had no access to enter/exit my room until they were finished for the day. Along with dealing with the noise, I had two male workers walk in on me in my room because they thought it was empty and wanted to pull out the carpet. I was not given an apology for any of this, only accommodated to the correct room after management noticed me taking pictures of the fire hazard in front of my current room. It was a disaster and I will not be staying there again in the future

    « WORST Night ever!!!!! »

    If anyone else makes the mistake of staying here I am sorry! There is nothing positive to report at all. They had parking and that was it. The room was freezing with no way to control or change temp. The water was warm after 30 minutes. The bed was a ROCK to sleep on. Internet sucked and breakfast was horrible. Stay somewhere else and you will have a better night.

    « Comfortable and Clean »

    Hotel was in the process of updating. Despite that the hotel is clean with nice room though the room itself needed some updating. As Platinum members, we are typically allowed a late check out which was only granted for 30 minutes, not very satisfied with that. The breakfast and hi-speed internet were adequate. Good value for the price charged,

    « Great hotel great service »

    This is an excellent hotel, clean, professional. The staff if friendly, courteous. The room service is great. I found staff to be helpful in finding cheapest taxi in the are. The breakfast is good and they give enough time. Also the coffee shop is a great idea.

    « Clean, Comfortable, & Convenient »

    I'm in the hotel industry & we needed an inexpensive hotel for one night near Princeton. I am very impressed. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, great shower! Wifi is complimentary. Room has a refrigerator, microwave, & coffee maker. The TV has a lot of premium channels too! Breakfast is included as well. Eggs, sausage, waffles, breads, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, & juices! I'd highly recommend this hotel.

    « Clean - Serves a Purpose »

    This is a true motel experience. Gave a very good because for what it is - a motel - it is a very good one. Close to highway 1, lots of highway noise, you park in front of your room. However, did not keep me awake. Bed very comfortable, free wifi, free breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit, pastry, beverages. Same both days. Staff friendly and willing to make sure your stay is comfortable. Clean, and that is important, clean room, clean bathroom. Towels not luxury but not budget threadbare either. Hot water aplenty. This is not a luxury stay. This is the place you stay when you need a clean and comfortable room for the evening. Close to Princeton, but not an area to walk, you need a car. Yes, would stay there again. Got a great price by going right to the website.

    « A good place to stop on the way back to JFK »

    We stopped here overnight when on our way back to JFK for our flight home. It is about an hour and a half from the airport The hotel is quite old-fashioned and in need of upgrading but clean and perfectly comfortable. The staff were very helpful and polite. Breakfast was quite good.

    « Good choice »

    For a stay in the Princeton area, this is a good choice. The rooms are well appointed, there is a good selection of TV channels, with good hot breakfast options, and with a helpful staff. The location is good for any requirement in the area.

    « Comfortable Room »

    Rooms were large, comfortable and well-maintained. The management & staff were polite & helpful. There was a good selection for breakfast including eggs, sausage & waffles. The location for us was very convenient for the places that we wanted to visit. Very good price for this area. If you are visiting Princeton, I'd recommend turning at the first right (Raymond Road) & following it to Rte 29 in Kingston

    « Awesome Staff »

    The staff was amazing. Very friendly and helpful. Location is close to everything. Stores all around. Easy access to the highways. Breakfast available. The rooms were clean and bed comfy. they are remodeling the outside of the building so it may appear to be closed but it's open.

    « Good Experience »

    Service was excellent. Breakfast was good. We slept good. Guest room was clean. The location is easy to find. My wife and daughter like the hotel very much. However, the WIFI in the hotel of Atlantic City was disappointed . The web speed was slow and not stable.

    « You get what you pay for »

    Where do I start? Room 201 had a musty scent, there was damage to the bathroom ceiling around the air vent, the bathroom had an upside down tub affixed to the ceiling (see pictures). There were stains on the sheets for one of the queen beds, and the sink was not inside the bathroom. This motel is right off the highway so it was very noisy. The only plus was that it came with hot breakfast which was ok. The eggs were a little too moist for my taste. The attendant could have been a bit warmer, friendlier

    « Excellent front desk and housekeeping »

    Hotel is located at one of the best location in Princeton. Everything nearby. Hotel staff and housekeeping are excellent. I had stayed there at least three time between July and August. I was satisfied with everything. Breakfast was better than many nearby hotels and the price for the room was also affordable for business and family visit. I will recommended other people to consider it for staying in Princeton and Princeton university.
