The food was cold. The coffee was terrible. Get a new firm to operate the restaurant.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jason2013ab4 Horrible customer service, don't recommend this place
The hotel, while average, really does itself a disfavor by the horrible front desk staff. When checking in, my card was charged the nightly rate, even though I was staying on points. As a platinum member, I received no recognition. Finally, when checking out, I was promised 500 points. However, it's been one week, and when calling today, they said the points get posted every few weeks. Simply unacceptable. Finally, the voice tone of the front desk staff, both in person, and on the phone, is condescending, like they couldn't be bothered to be of any help I've stayed at many Holiday Inns, but never at this property again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Coach David Need to improve breakfast
The only convenience of the breakfast buffet was that it was on site. The eggs were so so, the pancakes were like cardboard and the oatmeal was very soupy. I did enjoy the bacon & fruit. Hiedi the morning host was very pleasant and polite. I have had comparable and better breakfast at much lower nightly rate hotels. Next time I think I will stay across the street.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by roanton Poor hotel Management
Hotel management not available. Rooms booked as a group not ready at check in time, by 5pm or midnight even after booking months in advance and confirming rooms days before.
Guests did not receive the guest bags which were provided. No indication of our shuttle schedule.
Paid for a shuttle that guests could not take because rooms were not ready. Did not have time to change to make shuttle so they had to drive.
Guests (especially younger members) were over charged; not given the correct rate. Some of my guests who lived closer had to give up their rooms so others could have them. The list goes on.
No one has yet to resolve our concerns and it has been 3 days since our stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Grooms Parents APPALLING SERVICE AND ACCOMMODATIONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our son was married on July 12, 2014. He and his bride had reserved a block of rooms for the wedding guests many months in advance at the Holiday Inn, East Windsor, NJ. As the parents of the groom, we personally reserved five rooms for our elderly relatives from out of state. Our rooms were reserved by phone in May, and we called two to three times in the weeks before the wedding to ensure that our reservations were confirmed for the big day. Check in time is at 3:00. At approximately 4:30 a large group of our guests arrived at the hotel after church and we were told that our rooms were not ready! We had a shuttle scheduled to pick up the wedding guests at 5:00. The lobby was literally filled with our guests. Some needed to get changed, all wanted to freshen up and at least get their bags into their rooms. At around 4:50, we were given just a few rooms, and everyone had to quickly throw their belongings into those rooms and literally run to take the shuttle! The Parents of the bride were so upset about their guests that they stayed behind and drove themselves to the reception! When we returned from the reception at midnight, our guests once again had to wait in the lobby for a good half hour before they sorted the rooms out. When we finally received our rooms we were quite annoyed to find out that they were on all different floors and none of our guests were near each other. As if that weren’t bad enough, when we finally got to our rooms they all had a horrible odor, and in fact, a window was wide open in one of the rooms (presumably an attempt to air it out). Throughout this horrible experience, we received no feedback from any kind of management, since there was none present.
When we checked out the next day, we realized that we and our guests had been charged more than the agreed upon price for the block of rooms. When I asked to speak to a manager, a woman behind the counter identified herself as one. I expressed my dissatisfaction to her and she said she was “sorry”. Well, “sorry” can’t make up for the mortifying experience the parents of the bride and groom had to endure on a once in a lifetime day. We and our guests were not compensated in any way by the “management “of this hotel and their lack of concern was, quite frankly, appalling. They did not even offer an apology on the next day until I expressed my displeasure.
I noticed in the reviews of this hotel that another bride had a similar negative experience on July 1st of this month. The response posted by hotel staff on July 3rd reads:
“We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the inconveniences you and your wedding guests experienced. We are very disappointed to hear this and your comments will be addressed with the entire staff to ensure that this does not occur again. Again, we apologize that this was your experience.
Holiday Inn East Windsor”
Well, P.S., it did occur again, in fact, only 11 days later! That’s some track record!
I cannot think of a single positive thing to say about our experience at the Holiday Inn, East Windsor. In fact, I would never stay at another Holiday Inn, and I’m sure my guests feel the same way!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sunshine247 Close to Six Flags
Overall an average stay. The price is a bit high for what this hotel offers, but it is clean and comfortable and convenient to Six Flags.
The staff is cordial, the breakfast s good, though service was not highly rated. They were not rude, just a bit slow in service.
Overall the amenities were great

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lauren7122014 TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE
A block of rooms was reserved at this hotel for my brother’s wedding this past Saturday. Most of the guests reserved a room many months in advance and some of us even called the week of the wedding to confirm our reservation. There was a significant amount of time between the wedding ceremony at the church and the wedding reception. Due to this fact, dozens of the guests planned to check in and relax at the hotel before the reception. Many of the wedding guests were not even dressed for the wedding and planned to get ready in their hotel room. However, when the guests arrived more than an hour AFTER check-in time, the vast majority of them were told that the rooms were not ready. Dozens, including many elderly people, were standing in the lobby with nowhere to go.
My brother and sister -in-law paid for a shuttle to take guests to the wedding. Due to lack of rooms, most of the guests were unable to take the first shuttle. The second shuttle was unable to fit all of the guests, most of whom still had no rooms. Many people, including the brides own parents, were forced to drive themselves to the wedding.
When the guests returned to the hotel after the wedding checking in was STILL a HUGE inconvenience. Many people were still waiting in the lobby for a room after midnight. When many of the guests entered their rooms they were still unsatisfactory. Non-smoking rooms smelled like smoke, windows were left wide open, etc.
I would also like to note that in addition to the huge inconvenience caused by the lack of rooms, the response from the staff was unacceptable. There was no manager available during the entire ordeal and the staff seemed undertrained and inefficient. Many people were OVER-charged for their rooms and no one was able to do anything to compensate us for our huge inconvenience. We were all completely disgusted. We will never stay in another Holiday Inn again.
