"Fine hotel to stay at"
Staff was very friendly and rooms are fine for a couple days of stay. There is also a small shopping outlet to buy food near by and a restaurant right next to it. The only issue was that one of the irons was not in good condition to use, but overall this hotel is what it is for you're money's worth.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean and convenient, good stay!"
Practically brand new room, lots of space, small frig and a coffee maker. located inside a mall with a whole food. The onsite restaurant is fancy, didn't try. free parking. there is a outdoor swimming pool, but looks dusty with lots of leaves floating, didn't try. The courtyard is cute. breakfast has hot items, egg, sausage, as well as fresh fruit and […] muffin. The kids love the waffle maker, yummy! A free shuttle bus to Princeton. have our own car, didn't try. Clean and convenient place for a one-night stay. Will absolutely stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Electrical Fire Waiting 2 Happen!!"
Desk power outlet kept going out, not enough outlets in room, air condition unit 2 close 2 bed, had 2 queen beds-room felt cramped, chest drawers broken, several appliances (fridge, micro wave, tv) plugged into same outlet w/ adaptor, no surge protectors.Genuine Expedia guest review
"30 mins.to Six Flags, NJ"
We stay here just to go to Six Flags, Jackson, NJ. It'a bit too far, but save us $$. One thing is I don't like is the hwy. which you can't make a turn to the other side of your driving. You need to go to the next exit and come back to the hotel. Breakfast is ok, but when it's 9.30 am, they will take everything away to close the breakfast. Pool wasn't […] open while we stayed which it should on Memorial day weekend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel looked a lot nicer online when I booked it than when I actually got there. The first room I was assigned to had a broken lock on the door. I requested a new room because of safety purposes. The comforters in both the first and second room had visible stains and dirt on them. The second room I was in had two light bulbs that were out. Ultimately […] I think this hotel needs some remodeling. The restaurant attached has a great reputation, and along with the prime location, I think this hotel could bring in a lot more business with a little bit of a facelift. Only then would I think about returning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice room, close to Princeton University where we went everyday. Good breakfast. Plenty of room for 2 people.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was fine and the food next door (Pure) was excellent. The issues were related to no outlets working in my room, the room smelling and my hairdryer didn't work. My co-worker stayed in another room where the window was broken (1st floor) and she had to move. We tolerated the stay but won't be coming […] back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Room was modest but clean, property was run down"
The hotel is clean, but that's about all it is. The common areas are not well-maintained. I stayed in an area of the hotel that was hard to find: I had to wind through halls and go though doors and more doors. It looks as if the hotel was once a motel and they added the outer walls to it to make it a hotel. There was a pungent smell in the hallway with […] my room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff were friendly and accomodating. Breakfast better than we expected it would be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay, especially with a pet."
The staff could not have been nicer. I changed my room twice within 15 minutes of checking in, not because of anything wrong with the rooms, but because I was being a bit picky about natural light (I need sunshine and I knew I was going to spend a lot of time in the room working) and because I decided I would prefer a king to two queens. The font desk […] was completely cooperative, handled the changes on the phone, and sent someone up with the keys to the different rooms. This was also a great place to stay with my dog, as behind the hotel there is a large grassy area (maybe an acre) with several trees and about a five-minute walk further back there is a park with an old barge path along a canal that is now a walkiing/jogging path that runs for several miles. You can easily walk to Whole Foods and several other stores in the shopping center next door. My room was quiet, clean, and bright! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Breakfast was really awful. They could make great improvements here in terms of quality and variety. Apart from that, nice hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clarion Hotel in Princeton - great stay"
Attended a seminar in Princeton and found this hotel's rates reasonable and location convenient. Wasn't sure what to expect, based on other reviews, yet found the hotel staff welcoming, helpful, and courteous. the room clean and comfortable, and amenities within and beyond the hotel room more than adequate. I would readily recommend the Clarion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Although the hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful, the beds were very firm and not comfortable. Breakfast was adequate,but the hot food was warm, the juice was warm and cereal was served, but milk was not available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean - but service and comfort a little lacking"
Stale muffins at breakfast. Asked front desk for a place I could get a quick sandwich and he recommended the hotel restaraunt - which turned out to be a steak house that had none - but Wendy's and Quiznos ended up being right next door. Power outlet to the desk had a circuit breaker thrown both nights so my phone and laptop never finished charging. […] Very hard bed. On good note - it was a clean room and location was very good - and was a low price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fair, Not Great"
The Palmer Inn is reasonably priced and conveniently located to Princeton, NJ. It is clean, efficiently run and has a decent breakfast. On the other hand, the halls are narrow (I think a hallway was constructed outside of what used to be an exterior wall; the rooms have windows that seem to have been designed to be exterior windows although they now […] look out to a hallway) and somewhat dark. Our main complaints are that the room was cold and adjusting the thermostat did not help, one of the floor lamps was not functional -- and all hotel rooms lack adequate lighting to begin with -- and the coffee maker had standing water in the receptacle which made me reluctant to use it. For a one night stay while visiting nearby Rider University, it was fine. But I'd look somewhere else for an extended stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Whole Foods and Trader Joes"
The room was fine, bedding comfortable, a smoking room which are rare, heating and shower massage all worked as expected. TV old CRT, but OK - WiFi there but marginal. Fridge and microwave make having great plant based whole food shopping close by nice if in for an extended stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
good hotel close to a mall. could need some update.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Clarion Palmer Inn Princeton, NJ"
3 things were a problem: - free shuttle does not operate on weekends - coffee maker in room was broken - shower diverter was broken so you only got about one third of the water out of the shower head, but your feet get extra cleanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel.... if you have a car"
Very nice little hotel conveniently located close to a few malls, movie theater, restaurant, etc Very helpful staff doing the most to satisfy their guest... definitely not recommended for people expecting to not have to use their own carGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expected a little more"
Hotel has a nice lobby, but an odd layout. Lobby is in the center and there are two wings on either side. I had to go through three fire doors to get to the hall where my room was located, and pass by a large conference room. There was an odd smell lingering in the hallways, though I did not notice this in the room. The bed felt like a piece of plywood […] with springs under it - very uncomfortable. This wasn't the most expensive hotel in the area, but it wasn't the cheapest, either. I expected the beds to be more comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best Value in Princeton Area"
The rooms are set in a nice courtyard surrounding the pool and outdoor tiki bar. The rooms are stocked with great amenities mini-fridge, microwave, drip coffee pot with actual mugs, full couches, and heated bathroom. The breakfast was decent and its location on route 1 makes it an easy find. One word of warning: you may want to skip the attached restaurant. […] My dining experience left me disappointed to say the very least. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love the Hotel"
Excellent rate. The bed was very comfy and the room was fairly large and clean. The only problem with the hotel was the coffee. They skimped on the quality of the beans and it was bitter. I assume it was a robusta blend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"We'll stay here again."
We were pleasantly surprised at what a value this hotel was. The room and grounds were clean, and roomy. The staff was more than helpful in providing directions to our destinations and helping with dining choices. They were all very friendly and courteous. They went out of their way to help make our stay as nice as possible. The outdoor pool was clean […] and we enjoyed watching the kids play in the pool while sitting at a table with an umbrella. The breakfast they put out was nice , the food was hot and good, they had quite a few dishes to chose from. It saved us from finding a breakfast house and an extra food bill. We will go back again.

"Clarion Princeton NJ - good lodging, good price"
We were very pleased with the facilities all around. It was quiet despite being adjacent Route 1, a very busy highway. Well maintained, clean, good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing fancy but does a good job"
Stayed here during my (mainly) business trip in Princeton. About 10-minute drive from downtown Princeton, where Princeton Univ. is located. It's on a major highway (Rt.1) with a bunch of places to eat/shop nearby, and despite being on a major highway the room I stayed was quiet & comfortable. Continental breakfast was included, which was nothing fancy […] but was hearty meal (there was more variety during the weekend). Free wi-fi, fitness room, a little 'business' center, & swimming pool (was more like a pool for kids) -- I believe I got more than what I paid for. Was a nice place with pretty good deal.

"Clarion in Princeton"
A very nice small hotel. Nice breakfast and excellent staff.a few miles from downtown Princeton but a real good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a lovely stay. Pretty clean and quite, beautiful outside walkway, and the staff was friendly and efficient. So nice we came back a 2nd time the next week.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hard to access from the south, but otherwise OK"
We were visiting Princeton -- this was a reasonably good choice for that purpose. Driving on Route 1 is a nightmare, so luckily we didn't have to venture out for food, but the hotel itself is clean and had a GREAT breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clarion Hotel in Princeton"
My daughter and I stayed at the Clarion for a week. Hotel service was good, hotel and rooms were clean, they have a very convenient computer room with a printer, breakfast a little too early, the employees friendly. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Princeton.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
PLENTY OF STORES NEAR BY....NOT SO CLOSE TO THE UNIVERSITY ... SWIMING POOL CLEAN ..NOT TO CROWD OVERHAUL ENJOYABLE STAYGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clarion - not recommended"
Although the staff was nice, it was close to Princeton and the lobby was passable, the rooms were old, dirty and smelly. There was inconsistent hotel security (some doors did not need key access) and a hall with trash was nearby - yuck! With that said, the staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient if Visiting Princeton University"
Very convenient if visiting Princeton University since there is a shuttle that goes there every morning (9am) and comes back in the evenings at 6pm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Off The Beaten Track"
The hotel was satisfactory, but the location is out of the way if you are heading north on Route 95. The room as small but comfortable. The restaurant was closed and there are not a great selection of restaurants in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location & Super Fast "T1" Internet"
The rooms are basic but clean. The location is right next to the mall with restaurants, shoppings and Whole Food store. You could walk from the side street behind the hotel to the mall. Breakfast was great too. It's hot breakfast like eggs, bacon and waffles. The internet is super fast!! Not like most hotels have slow DSL, they have (2) T1 lines. It […] is great value for the money compare to other hotels on highway 1. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"No hot water. Water was Brown"
There was a problem with the hot water supply where the water was contaminated with rust or sewage or something. It was also cold. This lasted all evening and was still cold but cleaner by midnight. The next morning the hot water supply seemed clean but was only luke warm. When we checked out, the day staff pretended she was unaware that there had been […] any problem and did not even offer an apology. The one person on night duty had at least seemed to try and sort the problem out. We were also woken up at 8:00am by the chambermaid asking us when were checking out!! She returned as we were checking out at about 9:30 even though this was well in advance of the required check out time. We also had to endure a noisy refrigerated truck in the parking lot running all night. Will never go there again. We wouldn't recommend it to anyone at the price charged.

"Not good for Princeton University Visitors"
The public NJ Transit bus are awful!!! If you wanna visit Princeton U, find somewhere in walking distance to university. NJ Transit is unreliable and taxi's are expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
J'ai été déçu car ce n'est pas un Hotel mais plus tôt un motel. L'entrée des chambres se trouvent à l'éxtérieur aucun accès par l'intérieur. Seulement le lobby est fermé. L'air climatisé est fermé lorsqu'on arrive il l'allume lorsqu'on arrive devant nous. Enfin que les chambres ne soit pas trop chaudes toutes les portes des chambres sont ouvertes. Allo […] les bébittes ! J'en ai vu aucune mais facille d'accès avec les portes ouvertes. Calfeutrage autour de la porte mal fait alors encore la facille d'accès pour les bestioles. La place semblait propre mais pourrait facilement ne pas l'être. DIsons que j'aimais mieux ne pas le savoir. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Für die Preisklasse erwartet man kein Spitzenhotel, aber Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ist vollkommen OK.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
im Vergleich zu den überteuerten anderen Hotels in Princeton ist das Clarion eine gute Alternative.

Das Hotel hat auch einen Shuttle vom Mo-Fr. Zimmer wurde tgl. geputzt, Frühstück […] war in Ordnung. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

De stad Princeton is bereikbaar vanuit dit hotel zonder US Route 1 te gebruiken, wat tijdens de spits handig kan zijn.

Het hotel is goed onderhouden, schoon en heeft snel in […] ternet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
