“Very nice stay and a good holiday rate.”
Reviewed 24 December 2009

As a Marriott's Rewards member I've stayed at more than 15 Marriott hotels (including Residence Inn, Courtyard, etc.) . This particular hotel was on the low side of the pack - i.e. average. Reasonably clean; reasonably friendly staff; fairly well maintained grounds.

It's just that there was not a great level of detail with respect to most things. Bad fixtures in shower; fitted sheets that didn't fit the king size bed; bad TV reception; *very* uncomfortable furniture. You know - just little nagging things that I don't see at most Marriotts.

If I'm in the area again, and there was a special rate I might go there again, but it would not be my first choice.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for a week as we were travelling for business. One morning we found our car severe damaged while it was parked right next to the building entrance at the hotel property.
We started asking hotel management to help, come and view the damage of our BMW. No response. We even could not get hotel staff to get the police report left alone a discussion about the damages.
Receptionist was very rude and even made a comment about all non americans staying there...
We live in US for over 20 years and work professionally all those years. We came from Europe originally and have an accent, of course.

We found another hotel for the next visit to the area, so can you if you want to stay away from provincial ignorance and rudeness.

I had a friend who was staying there on company accomodation so we stayed with him on our trip to NJ. Our main plan was to check out NY. The front desk wa very helpful when we asked them for directions and other help getting around New york. The breakfat they provided was great. The room also had a mini kitchen which was helpful as we often brought in food and ate at the hotel. The internet facilities provided were great and we could print multiple copies so that was helpful as well. Its very near to the Rutgers campus so can be a plus for people visiting friends there.

This property is located just off the mundane Route 1 in Central New Jersey near the prestigious Princeton University. It pretty is much between the cities of Philadelphia and New York.
The room was outstanding, very clean, with 2 nice flat screens TV’s and fully equipped kitchen.
The complimentary breakfast is outstanding, it has fresh, hot, well presented food, not the stale old doughnuts you would expect in free breakfast situations.
The pool is very nice and clean, beware the Jacuzzi has cold water which makes for a very invigorating experience on hot summer day.
The exercise room is far better than seen in most hotels; it was equipped with all new state of the art treadmills, bench and free weights. The only negative aspect was the locked thermostat which was set to a chilly 60F (16C).
The only drawbacks were the SportCourt (mini basketball/tennis court) which had missing floor pieces, limp netting and a basketball hoop set too high. Also the TV channel selection was restricted; the local stations were only New York stations, No Philadelphia or New Jersey stations.
I was there on a Saturday, so I was unable to avail myself of the BBQ’s and manager parties which are only on Monday to Thursday evenings.

We are a High School Rowing Program participating in the 2009 SRAA Rowing Championships, we had over 80 athletes and parents. The service was outstanding and the rooms and grounds were impeccable. Johanna and her staff were most accomodating to our request for breakfast times and use of their facility.
All of our parents and atheletes had nothing but high praise for the service and accomodations, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back again.
The new addition of the "firepit" out by the pool was a great spot for everyone to gather at night even roasted marshmellows.

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete a review for our Residence Inn "Community" in Princeton - South Brunswick. The Egg Harbor Township Team certainly kept us busy (as any Team would) but you were all a pleasure to serve as a part of our "extended family" for the weekend. I know Johanna and the rest of our Team look forward to your return next year.

Your pre-planning of giving us a request for early breakfast times certainly helped us to help you. It was our pleasure as this is part of what Hospitality is about for us. It is most difficult to receive high marks from so many members of a large group such as yours but we are proud to have accomplished this feat.

Thanks again for your time!

I lived in the Residence Inn on my first trip to the States. The place is nice, comfortable, very clean and serves excellent breakfast. The facilities, gym, laundrette are good and its value for money for a long haul stay.

Staff are very polite, helpful and courteous...i loved every moment of my stay there.

  • Liked — Breakfast....and evening entertainment, snacks
  • Disliked — They could add some games...

This location is showing its age a little, but it was very nice & reasonably priced. The breakfast was really good & the chicken at the manager's reception (Happy Hour) was addicting.

My only problem with this Residence Inn, having stayed at a bunch over the years was the manager's reception & the marketplace. Where was the beer & wine? We didn't want to go out for drinks, but had to.

  • Liked — Good for extended family
  • Disliked — No alcohol at the market or at Happy Hour.

First off, thank you for taking the time to provide your review of our Residence Inn "Community" in Princeton / South Brunswick. I know that those that care enough to provide a review -- especially a good one -- enjoyed their stay enough to care.

Second, now that I am able to reply to your input, I wanted to tell you how excited I am to be able to report that nearly any aspect of the hotel that you refer to as "showing its age a little" has been replaced and/or upgraded. From large LCD TV's (up to 3 in some suites), to all-new Stainless Appliances, to a new Pool, to the new Patio with Natural Gas Grill and Firepit, and the new Parking Lot, etc., the list goes on and on.

We certainly look forward to your return should you be in the area again. I am quite sure the additions and upgrades we have made will also add that 5th "star" to your review.
