"Affordable hotel in Princeton"
I was in Princeton for a one night business trip and I chose the hotel based on its price. However, it did exceed my expectations. Location is very good, next to a shopping center and very close to a mall. The room was clean and it was quiet, even though the hotel is located next to Rt. 1, a very busy highway. I was also surprised to see a Keuring coffee machine instead of the usual hotel coffee makers. Ask for a room with view of the inner courtyard, which is quite nice.

"Great People and Place!"
Fantastic people and place! Mr. Melvin and Ms. Glenda along with other staffs are very cooperative and friendly, always available to assist. Stayed here for 4 nights recently to visit Princeton University. We were able to drive to UPenn (1.5 hours) and Yale (3.5 hours in traffic) from here. GPS address for this hotel is 29 Emmons Drive instead of the South US 1 address to get to the hotel comfortably. The adjacent shopping plaza has a WholeFoods, Dunkin Donuts, Jersey Mike, Marshall etc. that one can walk to. Definitely recommend this to others who wants to visit Princeton University or otherwise. Thanks.

"Needs Help"
I know that some hotels can be a bit "run down looking" if they are not brand spanking new, but....if this is the case, cleanliness is a must! Lobby was the only tidy spot I saw. The hallway was hot and dirty with Garbage overflowing in a can by my room! The room was okay but had a huge stained chair! I thought that could be because the lamp was not plugged in so no one has seen it yet but then every cushion on every chair I saw in the halls and by the elevator had a HUgE stain on its seat! The railings of the stairway were sticky! But most worst was the "cleanup crew" that came in grabbing food away from the customers still finishing their complementary breakfast. They were very rude and aggressive. It was a very uncomfortable thing for my 11 year old and myself to witness.

"Run Away"
Don't walk, run from this hotel! Decrepit furniture in the hallways, drunk evening staff, rude people and the pool was to close at a reasonable time, yet insanely loud people were allowed to swim and wreak havoc!!!! We checked out at 11pm and had a four hour drive home but it was worth not spending another waking moment at this excuse for a hotel.

"Basking in the glories of Princeton!"
The vibe surrounding Princeton is quite high class because the atmosphere of superior quality education pervades somewhat. The influence of the old Ivy League spirit helps to lift all boats around it.

"Safe and Comfortable"
The staff was friendly and accommodating. Housekeeping kept good care of our room and gave us peace of mind that we had a safe, comfortable, and clean place to stay while visiting a family member in a nearby hospital. Whole Foods is next door in the nearby shopping center and there is a restaurant attached to the hotel.

"The place is old and smelly"
We entered in the hotel to a bare floor with carpets ripped off, eventhough they did put a sorry board our first impression was not great, especially after a tiring amusement park trip. Next, we were given a smoking room, the minute we entered we knew it was smoked in. We called at the front desk to give us a non smoking room ASAP as my son has asthama and he had already started coughing within 5 mts. of being in that room. The receptionist insisted it was non-smoking (she thought we are some kind of fools to believe that) but gave us a non-smoking room after a 20 minute wait. No complaints about the new room, it was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also decent. The hotel itself looked an smelled really old. Eventhough we started off on a wrong foot the rest of our stay was pleasant. This was my first time in Clarion and I will try to avoid this hotel in future as much as possible.

"Staye here for a Princeton U Event"
Room we stayed in was so so. Room smelled musty. Bathroom is extremely dated, rusty drop ceiling, heavy caulking repairs, exhaust fan sounds like an airplane. Dark hallways, uneven walking surfaces. WIth all the newer hotels in the location I would most likely not come back to this one.

"You get what you pay for"
We stayed here the night before a sporting event and the place was pretty run down. The free breakfast the next day was nice since we were in a hurry. If you just need a place to sleep in is fine but do not expect anything special. The parking lot is beside a Whole Foods and a Marshall's which is a bonus, especially if you forget something.

"OK option"
There was a strong deororant smell in room, and in other room that we were offered as an option to switch to. The carpet was probably the culprit, as it seemed ancient. A/C not the most reliable. But it was about worth what we paid for it, and the staff were very nice, courteous.

"Sat Date Nite with my Fiancee"
I stayed on Sat over night. There was a light snow storm. The Hotel is under construction/renovations that explains ripped carpet in hallways & etc. Pure Restaurant is connected to the Hotel. There was a mixed crowd, with a live Dj that played a mix of music from R&B to Rap until 2a. The Hotel has a complimentary hot or cold breakfast served until 10a. I would visit again when renovations are complete

"Needs a wrecking ball"
What a mess. The lobby is covered in dust; they claim due to a "renovation." This place is way beyond renovation. It looks like a bomb exploded on the hotel rooms floor in the hallways. Just a complete nightmare. Once I fled the mess to my room, I found it stale and the thermostat was set at 85 degrees! I sat with no shirt on in the bed waiting for the room to cool off because I was too scared (there seemed to be nobody there) to keep my door open to air the room out. I didn't touch anything in the room except the soap, the towels and the sheets.

"Room ok, hotel going through renovation"
There was no indication from Hotels.com that the hotel was being renovated. When we got off the elevator to go to our room we literally had to drag our suitcases through paint and carpet debris. It was difficult at best. The hotel needs the renovation - run down.

Room was 85 degrees when I walked in, and a friend in another room said the same thing. Had to turn on the A/C in January. Construction all over the place - unsightly. Breakfast was eh. the worst was apparently a man wandering through the halls at 4am knocking on doors saying "Housekeeping" trying to harass and break in. Lovely!
