All the rooms were advertised as non-smoking,yet the entire facility smelled like an abandoned smoke house. Hoteltonight app and Clarion should be ashamed of themselves for charging such an exorbitant rate for the worst hotel in NJ. The first room I was assigned was dirty so I requested for another, but the second room was no better that the first. The entire facility stunk and looked like it had never been vacuumed since the hotel was built. There were no security anywhere, anyone can access the hotel through any of its entrances without a key card.Including through the main entrance, since the guy on duty was always watching episodes when he wasn't dead asleep. The room rate should be priced at $40 instead of $90 per night. still, I won't recommend it for a homeless person who cares about his/her security. And I will definitely not stay here or any other clarion hotels ever, even if the stay was free.

I should’ve known that $100 hotel room would be terrible, but this was really bad. Go to the hotel and the smoke alarm was beeping due to a bad battery. I was able to get another battery from the front desk and fix it myself. That kind of stuff happens. Then I went back to the room and noticed there was not a single towel washcloth or hand towel. Another trip to the front desk. When I got back to the room I noticed there was a significant leak under the vanity that was making the carpet wet. That’s pretty gross but it was also 1230 at night so we just dealt with it. Woke up this morning and somebody hit my car in the parking lot, no note, no message nobody at the front desk. Call to file a police report and they indicated that it had been filed and they had tried to reach me the night before. We heard nobody at our door. This place is dirty, run down and nobody’s maintaining anything. Avoid at all costs.

I stayed at this hotels chain again during a quick trip to Princeton University. This was based on my last trips to Martha’s Vineyard in which I found the Choice properties to be clean and enjoyable. I was to put it frankly, shock at the condition of this property. I found mold in the hallways and my room, along with ripped carpet and an over film of dirt, spots, insect and rodent matter on all items to include the carpet and microwave. Then in the morning on my departure, I found a roach running across the room floor. Yes, there is a free breakfast but I did not eat here for above reasons. The plus side is it is next to a strip mall which has a Whole food and various other stores. There is a nice diner a short walk for a great clean breakfast.
