“Probably the best value in Linden”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

I have always been pleased with Hampton Inns. This one seemed a bit dated. The non-smoking room smelled as if it had been smoked in and then cleaned. This hotel has a reputation for bad internet connections in the guest rooms but we did fine on the 3rd floor. I understand that floors 1-2 would be better and the 4th is a no-go. This is probably the best value in Linden and the staff was very nice. No big problems and I would recommend it again.

wonderful visit. We checked in a bit early, were greeted by a wonderful front desk clerk and given an overview of the hotel and area. We also were helped with directions and hints for our trip up to MetLife Stadium for the game later that night. All in all a very plesent stay. Breakfast in the morning was very good and the kids enjoyed the stay.

the hotel staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel was fairly clean just didn't like the fact that the hotel had so many smoking rooms.. I have never stayed at a Hilton prop with smoking rooms before!!

An absolute delight! Clean place, clean pool, friendly staff. Cathy the GM was amazing & made us feel very welcome. Great restaurants within walking distance, and a new AMC movie theater next door. I highly recommend!

Besides the fact they do not offer any gluten free food at their complimentary breakfast, I would still stay here as the hotel is clean and parking is free. Was gonna stay at the Marriott but they charge you a fee for parking.

We enjoyed our stay overall at this property. As others have said, it has a strip mall and a few eating establishments near by. The hotel is in a central location, however, that comes with a down side.

When sitting by the pool, you smell the odors from the nearby burger king and mexican restaurant. On a hot day you also smell the sealer that was placed on the nearby parking lot. We selected this hotel primarily for the outdoor pool and this is an area that appears to be neglected. The pool was clean and water refreshing, but the landscaping around the pool has been totally neglected. The outside of the building around the pool is showing its age and there are ventilation covers that look as though they have not been cleaned for years. The weeds need to be pulled and perhaps some landscaping outside of the fencing.

Inside the hotel, service at the front desk is available during late afternoon and evening, but on several occasions during the day I either called the front desk and no one answered or stood at the front desk and there was no one available. The manager was in a small office on the phone on two of my visits. After waiting several minutes, it was obvious I was not going to be acknowledged.

During our stay there were many families at the hotel and fewer couples or business travelers. On three of the four days there was a wait for a seat in the breakfast area and if guests didn't clean up their tables, the trash remained. The tables were not wiped down between guests. It was evident there was not enough staff to handle the crowd. By 9:00 many food items were gone and some not replenished, but they promptly closed the doors at 10 am!

The rooms were ample size and as others reported the AC units are loud. On two days I had to call for service to make up our room, one day service was after 4:00. The housekeeping supervisor did personally visit and made sure we had what we needed, after speaking with her. The towel bar was torn off the wall near the tub and removed but ripped wall paper remained. There were stains on the wall paper. This really bothered me the whole stay. The cleaning staff did not attend to the details. At $189 plus tax per night, Edison offers many other options as do other nearby areas.

I would certainly selected another property for a 4 night stay, but for one night if you need to be in this location it would be fine. After a full week, the deficiencies were very noticeable. We traveled in to Edison for our evening meals.

HAMPTON INN- LINDEN, NJ Happens to be a little gem right in the heart of CENTRAL/NORTH JERSEY. From your booking with THERESA and her staff to your room and the way JANICE mandates cleanliness and comfort. This hotel puts CUSTOMER SERVICE FIRST- TRANSLATED: It means they put you and your needs first. Everything you need is right in the area- Movie theater, Restaurants, Transportation, A major highway to take you around NJ or right into NY, WAL-MART/TARGET, and Woodbridge Commons Mall. So go and enjoy and let Theresa and Janice take care of you!
