“Great value, clean accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for five days unplanned. Clean spacious and comfortable rooms that were regularly serviced. Hit the coldest spell of the year but the room stayed well insulated and warm. Very comfortable bed and good facilities. Why pay more? No breakfast, but some coffee to get you started in the morning. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel for anybody.

I stayed overnight during a family emergency and was happy with the experience. The room was very clean and the front desk staff were helpful and friendly. The room is basic but comfortable.

Also, try Joe's Crab Shack right next door for a great meal.

We stayed for one night. It is generally good for its price.
It is close to Princeton University.
A bit noisy during night and the wall is thin.
It looks like a motel but it is better than a motel.
Good enough for a short term stay.

This was my second time at this particular RRI. I only stayed two nights and had no problems. I chose this location because of it's proximity to Route 1 and 295 (a blessing and a curse as I will reveal later). The front desk staff was friendly - even though it seemed they were doing many tasks at once (answering the phone, checking people in and taking care of something on the computer). As requested, I was given a key to a room that had an iron, a double bed, a refrigerator and microwave. There is a major mall a quarter of a mile away and a great restaurant a few steps away. After reading reviews, i realized that my frequent travels have required me to do advanced research of the hotel and surrounding areas I will be staying at so I know what to ask for. I suggest you do the same! It will make you stay more enjoyable. The only thing i had a problem with was the reason I stayed there - the roads. While the multitude of roads leading into the area allow you to get to many places by car, getting out of the hotel onto the highways is a nightmare, especially during rush hour. You can wait 5-10 min to exit the hotel. At the end of November I will be staying at another RRI in the Washington DC area. I hope it as good as this one.

Room Tip: check out the area via google maps satellite to see what rooms have access to light in the morning.

I would give this room a one star if the front desk woman wasn't so friendly.

We stayed two nights here.

The first night (terrible)

Room 123
1. Mosquitoes swarming, I was bit in many places on my body. Before going to bed we thought they were gnats which was bad enough, but upon getting bites I realized what they really were.

2. Stain on sheets. Possibly not cleaned before we got there.

3. Bathroom floor dirty

4. Broken fridge that made abnormal sounds and sat right next to the bed causing us to have to unplug it.

5. Not their fault exactly. Paper thin walls so we could hear the neighbors having sex all night and later at 4am smokers outside talking very loudly while smoking outside.

6. "Free Wifi" extremely poor signal.


Long story short, no sleep, extremely grossed out. Not happy at all.

We took pics of the bugs and the stains.

We told the front desk and had to repeatedly return to the office to try to get a new room with them saying "one more hour and the cleaning staff will be here" therefore stealing time away from our day because I refused to take a shower in the old gross room.

I was shocked that they didn't offer a discount, comp stay, nothing.

When we finally got our new room (140) it seemed to be of higher quality. The fridge was across the room and quieter. The wifi was of higher signal. No bugs.

My husband had a hard time pulling out of the parking lot in all cases due to the high amount of traffic

Regardless, they should have done more for us. I won't recommend this place regardless of lower price.

My son and I check in and was given a room on top floor...OMG you open the door and the smell of must and something hits you. The bathroom was full of rust, mattress sunk in middle, furniture old with worn upholstery, and chipped paint. I ran back down to front desk and to my surprise they had an attitude because I wanted a refund and refused to stay in such filth. After about 1/2 hr of back and forth and 911 on speed dial to assist in this situation, I got my refund and left. Im an honest reviewer trust me...you don't want to stay here!

Me and my kids stayed over night to go to six flags. First off they only give you two towels and two wash clothes, so I called down to the front desk for more, after waiting over an hour no one ever came so I had to drive to the front to get them. Then the rooms comes with no iron so you have to go to the front desk to get one when I get to the front desk they have no more so we had to wear our clothes wrinkled, mind you the hotel was no where near fully booked. I will never stay here again I rather pay more money and stay some where else.
