I'm admittedly a fan generally of Holiday Inn Express, and this one hit all the buttons. Clean, close to highway, large and well-appointed rooms (microwave and fridge), breakfast as it should be at an HIE. Staff friendly. And folks... when you consider that you're in New Jersey, land of jughandles and traffic circles and inventor of the Jersey barrier, the access in and out of this hotel isn't all that bad! (smiling) (Seriously, I didn't think the in and out was all that tough.) (Though you do need a car to go anywhere but the adjacent other hotels.) The price was excellent, too.

Dear Deejub:

You are absolutely right about NJ and the jughandles! At least our location, as you mentioned, right off Rt 95/NJ Turnpike Exit 9, or Routes 1, 9 & 18, makes access to our hotel easy from any major route/city in the Northeast.

Glad you thoroughly enjoyed our hotel and we look forward to having you stay with us again soon.

My son's soccer team stayed ar the Holiday Inn for a tournament.
The rooms were large, and clean.
The staff was nice and accommodating, especially when all of the team needed extra towels! The complimentary bkfst was good.

Dear fselig:

Thank you for your great review of our hotel. As you know, our hotel has rooms with 1 King Bed or 2 Queen Size beds, which are perfect for teams and groups. Getting the team going in the morning with our complimentary hot breakfast is also a significant value add. And we hope you came back after the game and spent some time relaxing in our indoor pool.

We will share your comments with our staff and look forward to having you stay with us again.

Why pay more at the hotel just beside it when you can get a similar thing within walking distance and an extra plus the parking is free!!! Jorge (pronounced "Gor gay") was fabulous.. Unbeatable customer service and small talk makes one feel at home.

Plenty of parking. Get anything you need to purchase outside the hotel before you arrive as it can be a challenge to get in and out as it can be a traffic maze to find your way to the hotel and back. Was greeted warmly by Jorge at the front desk. Very large lobby and that is not even where they serve breakfast! Breakfast was in a huge room off the lobby! No issues with crowds here!
Two elevators serve four floors. Ice on 1st and 3rd. Room featured nice size fridge and microwave. Room window opened slightly which I like. Beds on the soft side. Bathroom updated and clean. Room lacked electrical outlets and someone had permanently attached the clock cord to the outlet cover thus blocking it from any other use. I hate that!
Internet was fine. TV was direct TV lite not all channels. Smallish TV I think 32" maybe smaller.
Would stay again because my room was quiet!

All the workers there were extremely friendly. They have snack, and drink machines on every floor and ice machines on 2 floors. They have a really nice indoor pool as well, which is located in a warm room so you're not cold. They have a small gym, a meeting room, and a computer room. The breakfast was okay, but not great. Even though they had a good sized selection the good food was gone within the first 20 mins. Also, the drink cups were relatively small. The beds were pretty hard, which is really the only important downfall I see. It's a non-smoking hotel, so if you're not into that, this would be a good hotel for you.

Room Tip: The king rooms have whirlpool tubs.

This is a very well run hotel. The rooms are very clean, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. Check in and checkout is painless. The morning breakfast is not exactly gourmet, and I would avoid the egg selections that dry out under heat lamps. But the cereals are varied, there is toast and waffles available,the coffee is good and there is a variety of juices to choose from also. The young lady that worked the breakfast room was quick to clean and kept the coffee pots filled, and was very pleasant to talk to as well.
The only painful part of a stay here has nothing to do with the hotel. East Brunswick seems to be in a state of continuous construction, so ...even with a GPS or mapquest, it is an accident if you find your destination. Even the sign for Center Boulevard was taken down so you have to guess as to whether you are heading down the correct street. As others have stated in their reviews, there is no place to eat within walking distance, and to go out on Route 18, once again, with detours, road blocks and narrowed roadways, going even 2 miles or so can take forever, and trying to retrace your steps on the way back is harrowing. Again not the Holiday Inn's fault...but, be advised...once you venture out of the hotel, getting around can be a real adventure.

Good hotel overall, no major complaints. Everything fairly new and updated. Room size was adequate but not large. Bathroom also nice, but shower made an annoying high-pitched whine. Did have microwave and fridge which was nice (even though we didn't use them).

Location was OK, but not a lot of food options nearby. Only thing in walking distance is a restaurant and sports bar about 1/4 mile walk up the hill next door to the lobby of the Hilton.

Breakfast area was large, but didn't have any gravy for the biscuits! Gotta have my biscuits and gravy! :)

Overall a good choice. Takes a lot to get 5 stars out of me.
