I booked my room through Hotels.com for a one night stay before flying back home. The best part of the hotel was the proximity to the airport. However, management has done a poor job at maintaining the rooms and the property as a whole. The first room I checked into, had wet carpet, and wet furniture throughout. Furthermore, there was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 March 2017 via mobile

Stayed in Clarion hotel for one night. For its price the value is just fine, although the interior could do with a serious update. Princeton is at 10-15m driving distance, big mall with cinema close by. Placed along route from NYC to Boston.

This hotel had a good location to where we were visiting. So we ignored some of the negative reviews on strange movements and safety concerns there. Staff was good. Breakfast area not so clean as we bodices a cocktail on the day of check out. We had to change rooms due to non functioning airco. Still there was smoke smell...

The entire place is NASTY!!!! Stains and cigarette burns in the bed spreads, one looked like it had blood on it. Stains on the carpet and in the bathroom. It was actually scary to touch anything. TV only had a few channels on it

The only reason I am giving this two stars is because they comp'd my stay, and I appreciated that. I got in very late, and had a full day the following day. I notice the stains on the walls, and they were everywhere. Some of them looked very much like blood splatter of some kind. It was about as gross...

Stayed here for two nights; really enjoyed this hotel. It has an India-ambiance; Eastern Restaurant part of the hotel. Outside is a lovely place to relax, sip coffee, have a smoke, chat... (The view is of the parking lot but there's a unique solitude that can be experienced anyway). A few steps from the hotel is a Mall that has...

The staff here is friendly and receptive. We loved the location (next to the mall). We were bummed the pool was drained but found plenty of other things to do in our down time. There is a small laundry facility, free breakfast and an Indian restaurant attached. It was perfect for us and met our quick traveling needs.

Because I wanted to be at the Prince Junction train station early, I stayed for a night at this hotel. The room was clean, free breakfast was included, and on the premises was an Indian restaurant. Near by was a shopping center, a Wendy's, and a diner. It's not fancy, but I found it worth the price.

The room and facility could use a face lift, BUT for the price, we got a lot. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. There was a desk with chair plus an upholstered chair. The TV got hundreds of channels, and wi-fi is free. The breakfast was much better than we had anticipated including fresh fruit salad as well...
