“Excellent stay at this comfortable hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel! The hotel was exceedingly clean, and the beds were so very comfortable. The pool was beautiful and very refreshing here!

Staff was very friendly and always willing to give a hand whenever necessary. I noted that there was no refrigerator or microwave in the room and I called down to inquire about it. They sent both items up immediately and called back to follow up to be sure.

I highly recommend this location and had an excellent visit here!!

I would not recommend this hotel at all. It's dirty, outdated, and a lady in the bar is not the friendliest person in the world. If you are in the middle of a thunderstorm and have no place to go, give it a try. If you are not desperate, there is a much better hotel just around the corner.

Worst hotel restaurant in over a decade and the worst service in a long, long time. Avoid this hotel and restaurant if at all possible.

I sat at the bar as that doubles as the restaurant. After being ignored for ten minutes the bartender, Jackie, who had been in deep conversation with two friends at the other end of the bar, finally made her way to me. No apology. I ordered a margarita (lousy) and the "Roma Chicken". The chicken was freezer burned, probably defrosted five or six days ago and definitely spoiled. Two bites told me this, the second I spit out. The "baked potato" wasn't. It was microwaved. Their salad bar was filthy and I saw utensils there that weren't clean.

Jackie spent nearly 100% of her time ignoring me and the others around the bar and just talked with her friends. When she finally noticed nearly everything on my plate wasn't eaten I explained what was wrong. She did take the chicken off my bill which I appreciated and thanked her. Basically supper consisted of a microwaved potato.

The hotel is under renovation and I understand that but for what I paid I expected a place considerably cleaner and elevators that didn't make painful noises. Also the wifi is worthless on the fourth floor, it would not stay connected to any device for more than five minutes. I set my iPhone up as a hot spot and used that.

This hotel is on my never to return list. What a hole.

Found this hotel, or should I say my GPS found this hotel while traveling up Jersey Turnpike. Had enough of driving so I found the closest place. Turns out it was 6 miles from turnpike, it's right off the Garden State Parkway. But I'd called, they'd given me a good military/government rate discount price over the phone so I went.
Nice location, has a Wawa and a couple of fast food type places next to it for breakfast.
Lobby looked decent enough, front desk folks were friendly, free water bottles and papers. Was a bit worried when I got off the elevator, carpet in hallway had seen better days, baseboards (or the plastic equivilent) were gone.
Got into room, it was clean, smelled good, bed was comfortable. Had a beer at the bar, it was cheap and cold. Wi-fi worked well for me.
Didn't sample the restaurant, had breakfast at the aforementioned Wawa. Would recommend overall, would also like to see it once they finish renovating.

We, at Save A Yorkie Rescue, held our annual event in Swedesboro and had many families, and their dogs, stay over at the Holiday Inn, and had a great experience. Our founders brought two large cakes and the hotel staff put it in their refrigerator units. Just great service!

For my job we stay at Holiday Inn and HIE. I usually like my stay, but this one was not good. First off, the hotel looks old and run down. Second, I didn't get any internet coverage on the fourth floor. That didn't make me happy. Third, I thought breakfast was okay. It is probably worth the money. If I would choose between the Hampton and the Holiday Inn, I would definitely choose the Hampton and get the HHonors points!

The only impressive thing about this hotel was that the maintenance person showed up in a timely fashion to fix the air conditioning that was not working. Their guest book in the room stated room service was available 6am-10pm. They left out not available from 11-5pm. Breakfast wasn't delivered without an issue and food was subpar. Hotel looks like it is under renovations but not sure.
