Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sd2013 Not what I would expect from CP
I used to stay here often as it is very convenient for me. The property is close to NJ Tpk, Yogi's is good for a quick bite and the staff is always very professional. On my last stay, I was informed that they discontinued breakfast for PC Platinum members. The hotel also does not have a refrigerator in every room. I think I will begin to stay elsewhere.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Manu20 Not what I expected for Crowne Plaza
Yogis is great for free breakfast (coupons at check in) and $5 off dinner menu. The food is more than adequate and the staff is very friendly. If you don't want to go out at night you can get what you need on site. PC members get a bottle of water and a few snacks at check in.
Hotel is right on the turnpike so the rooms are very noisy. Fan on heater cycles loudly many times per minute and it is not possible to have continuous fan and heat at the same time. So you either freeze or can't sleep due to noise. In January overnight temps are in the low teens. No duvet/comforter on the "renovated" room beds - I had to ask to have more than a sheet and thin bedspread. I have stayed in other CP hotels and the rooms have Sleep Number beds and big, fluffy comforters.
They have one of the worst gyms I have ever seen at this level of hotel. It looks like the pieces were sourced at a yard sale. Most don't even function. Also no heat in the work out area, I'd estimate the room temperature was about 60 degrees.
Common areas are very dirty, perhaps due to renovation efforts. It makes the hotel look like a construction zone.
Hotel internet is very slow - forget downloading video. For the last 3 weeks I have checked in on Sunday night and have been given a WiFi passcode that expires at midnight, even though I am at the hotel for the week. Why not give out the code for the course of my stay?

Overall great and I stay here often. Always a friendly staff and very helpful. The rooms are clean and efficient. All technology is up to date and the sports bar restaurant has an easy atmosphere with a friendly staff and good menu.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Busman1963 Two Common Things
I find this at many Hotels;
1) The remote and or TV do not work. At this location in particular it took several minutes to reach the discovery channel. Then it froze up and I started over.
2) The exhaust in the bathroom did not work. I like to take fairly long hot showers and moisture was running down the walls when I got out of the shower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BIGTEX 2 stays in 15 days and 3 rooms
Where I live things are just cheaper, so I can't put the value up any higher. Yogi's restaurant has the atmosphere of a Buffalo Wild Wings but with better food. The room was pretty good, bed was a 4 out of 5, plenty of parking, well staffed, treat regular customers good and club members even better, and it is right off of the Turn Pike which is a huge plus driving in Jersey. Only real negative was the fitness room. only one treadmill out of the 8 pieces of equipment functioned and you have to go through the indoor pool area to get there. That being said, the fitness center has no privacy from the pool patrons, only a full length glass window seperates them. Hope this was helpful!
P.S.- Romeos Pizza is only 5 minutes down the road in Jamesburg. All of the food there was good, but Grandma's Pizza which is sold by the slice.....MMMMM MMMMMM MMMM!!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cali63 Right location, helpful staff
We wanted to be near family and there weren't many places to choose from. The staff was very helpful. We asked for an extra blanket and were given a dirty one. Asked for another and that was clean. The pool was dirty and one of the treadmills in the exercise room gave a very bumpy ride and needed repair or readjustment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jdwy Restaurant unorganized
Restaurant staff both at night and in the morning seemed untrained and not really knowing what their role was (exception was the bartender who was fine). As an example, no one greeted you when you arrived for breakfast or provided you with menus until you flagged down one of what appeared to be three servers. No one checked the buffet table; as result the egg container was empty and had to ask to have it refilled. Two of the servers seemed to be rolling silverware in napkins and the third was roaming around aimlessly. For that reason we may not stay there again (this was our third visit)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan87 WTM'12 Competitor review
Stayed the 15th - 19th of November and competed in Worlds Toughest Mudder 2012. The place is very close to the course and provided the ease of being able to get to the event quickly and without delay. The rooms are clean and Housekeeping does a fairly good job. my only annoyance was after WTM'12 I wanted to soak in a nice warm bath...however when I asked the desk for a plug for the tub a maintenance man arrived with a plunger.... needless to say we informed him that we did not need a plunger, but a stopper for the bathtub, so we could fill the tub.... They did not have one, a minor but annoying development.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by averagejoetraveler Not up to par with other Crowne Plaza locations
I have stayed at other Crowne Plaza locations, including the one in nearby Edison, NJ. Overall it is definitely not at the same level as the other locations. I was there for 3 days, and 2 of the days the trash was not emptied, but otherwise the room was cleaned. The access to the hotel is difficult at best. But the biggest disappointment was the restaurant/grill located there. Service is horrible at best, and the whole atmoshpere is kind of like a truck stop.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MRTFlyer Thought Crowne Plaza was supposed to be above Holiday Inn's
This property evidently used to be a Holiday Inn but other than a few cosmetic touches and new TV's, I'm not sure anyone would call it an upgrade!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great service
I like the fact that when i go there its ready and speedy process with a front office manager, Jagdish, that is very well attentive of the costumers and remembers them.
