“Not your typical Holiday Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

I was sort of expecting a second rate hotel. I was so pleasantly surprised. This Holiday Inn was like a luxury hotel. The staff was friendly, attentive and went above and beyond. The hotel rooms (including the lobby and breakfast area) were more than lovely. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to all who are going through or to the area.

Check-in was good but the interior needs updating, The door to the room seem to be on a special hinge that closed fast but the door to the bathroom was hard to close. It also seemed to be on a special hinge or something that make it hard to close all the way. It is right off of I287, which is convenient to hop off and hop right back on again. The hotel is in a middle of a lot of places to eat so going hungry is not an option. The location has a pool but I did not get a chance to check it out. Continental breakfast in the morning is free and is OK (waffles were soggy) but there was a carafe of OJ on the table when you sit down and the variety was good.

This was our first visit to US for a specific purpose . We never felt that we are away from the home. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Everything was made available to us as and when required even at odd time. We thank the staff for making the trip memorable. Sanjay ,Sneha & Mrinmayee , India.

Stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights on business. Everything about the hotel was what you expect from a Holiday Inn. The rooms were OK. Breakfast was good. The wireless was good. Place is getting old and run down - could use some renovation.
The front desk staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Made me feel at home

Room Tip: Stay facing away from the main road and get a higher floor. I had people standing under my window sm...

I've been staying at this hotel for years now, and it's because I know these people who are employed here do their best to make everyone's stay a pleasant one. Conveniently located just off Exit 5 on I 287. Plenty of parking and within close proximity of anything you may need, usually within walking distance, which is handy when parking a commercial vehicle for the night. I'm up and out of there before the complementary breakfast but when checking in, they usually have a bowl of fresh fruit which I can get an apple or pear for the next morning. I like the Ruby Tuesday restaurant situated within the hotel, The room is always clean, and the bed comfortable, although I hated to see the Memory foam-top beds go. Will continue to stay there for as long as my trip take me to that area.

This was my first time staying at the Holiday Inn in South Plainfield. The rooms are roomy and the beds comfy. But the absolute best part of my stay came from the front desk staff. I had bought beer for myself and was going to enjoy one in my room when I realized that I could not open the bottle because it was not a twist off. I went to the front desk to ask for help and the lady said she could open it with her teeth. Now I agreed to this first before she did it (some people might be grossed out about it but it didn't bother me). And sure enough she bit the cap right off my beer. It seriously made my stay!! Next time I'm in South Plainfield for work I will definitely be staying there again!!!!!

I have been here several times. It is right next to I287. Rooms are roomy and clean, staff is friendly, full breakfast great, and there is a Ruby Tusday adjacent to the hotel. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance. There is a wine store around the corner on Centennial Avenue, a Shop Rite little further down the road, and Macys and Walgreens on the other corner.
