Great value, strip mall next door with wholefoods. Clean and confortable.

Great value. Walking distance to shopping and food.

The most dirtiest disgusting smelly ghost kind hotel I’ve ever checked in!!

Really liked the staff and nice breakfast. Property is clean and in a very convenient location.

I’ve stayed here before and stay here because it’s cheap and there’s a Whole Foods next door. This time they forgot to clean my room. I stayed two nights. But the bed is comfortable and the sheets are clean. Idk if I’ll stay here again because it’s worse this time than the last time.

When I checked in they said my Orbitz check in didn't count and demanded a credit card and photo ID. They took the credit card and photo ID into another room and made photo copies of them, came back and had me sign another charge card agreement. At check out when I asked for a receipt they refused, saying that I had booked thru Orbitz so they cannot give me a receipt for the charges. Not happy about lack of credit card & ID security, or the refusal to provide a receipt

The staff was friendly and helpful. The furniture in the room was run down. The wardrobe wouldn't close and the dresser drawers didn't close. There was a gap under the door to the outside.

Staff was helpful and room was clean. Hotel is falling apart. Breakfast was pretty good. It’s a cheap hotel and close to Princeton. Whole Foods walking distance so that was great.

Rooms are nice. A/C heat are quiet. Exterior old, rain leaks into hallways making carpets wet and dirty. Breakfast muffins had ants crawling around them.

Do you tail was quiet and conveniently located close to the mall

Great people very helpful. Great breakfast check in fast

Our five night stay was pleasant at the Clarion. The hotel is located about 5 minutes to any store you need. The room was large, a little over stuffed with furniture. They had a small issue with ants. Could have been the humidity but overall we enjoyed our stay, would do it again!

When I had to check out door couldn’t open I had to miss my exam cause my Id was inside I couldn’t take the abim exam without my Id

There was ants the manger accused my husband of trying to go into a other a room when all he was doing was smoking outside then he called me because he thought my husband was lying about having a room

Biggest problem is the so call fitness facility does not have any weights. Also only one treadmill works. They need to greatly improve the fitness facility or don't advertise it. Carpet throughout is very old and should be replaced.

The location was convenient to where we wanted to be, but there were just too many problems, many of which stemmed from their unwillingness to provide directions. We couldn't find our room, because it required us to go through an unmarked door (if it had been light, we would have seen it led to an outside passage to rooms, but it was dark). The TV controls were mysterious, and I wound up having to reboot everything to make it work. The WiFi had a password, but when I entered it, the responses was "incorrect password" (and yet the desk clerk made it work by entering the same code). And at 8AM we asked them to come back later to make up the room, but they never did. To heat the room to a reasonable 70 degrees, we had to set the thermostat to 55, something which took a bit of trial-and-error to figure out.

I can see why there were no refunds. Poor maintenance and lack of cleaning were not evident until check in. Then it was to late! You think your safe from this checking into a Calarion hotel. Buyer beware.

Family and I came from Ct. For a, visit at Great Adventures theme park. Hotel wasn't too far from park. the kids enjoyed the fact that the hotel had a pool. The king sz room I stayed in was nice as. The bed was a little too firm for me,but overall the stay was pleasant. The staff was excellent .we would definitely stay again Thank u Oh and the complimentary breakfast was very convient
