Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve103 Comfortable bed; friendly staff
The only thing I really didn't like was the design of the bathroom sink. Too high; not enough surface area; sink too close to toilet.
Everything else was fine; everyone was friendly; when I sent my steak back at the restaurant (too fatty), no fuss was made; in fact, they gave me the burger I ordered instead for free, which I would not have expected.
The prices are creeping upward, and this rate is hard for a small company like ours to afford. But all in all, this was a good experience, and I'd probably stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NCtraveler Great parking
Best part of the hotel is the parking lot. Driving a tractor trailer and finding hotel parking in nj can be quite difficult. This lot is easy to access and had plenty of room. Hotel was very good for the money I paid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frequent-Traveller Overall good but had issues with room
Even though I was a platinum IHG member the room choice given was poor... had bugs (ants and other on the desk and bathroom)... my room was also the farthest to elevators a very long walk. They moved me to another room with no bug issues but that was still far from elevators.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lainy Good place to sleep
It is located in a convenient location for business trips. The bed is very comfortable, but other than that I did not spend much time in the hotel. There are some bright street lamps/company next door, and the curtains do not close all the way, so if you have trouble sleeping with the lights on, it might be a bit annoying. Other than that, good place to stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mr.Service A Bad Rep
The customer service received was unacceptable. I was shown incompetence and pride by one not by all, but that was enough. Not matter how bad a hotel's food, decor or location may be, the service provided will always taste better, look better, and seem more pleasant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky430 Hotel is average
Stayed here on a number of occasions over last year.As already stated wireless is really slow. As a platinum member this is one of the few hotels that never offers me a room upgrade.Asking for a room refrigerator is a big deal to them,in fact,on a previous they wanted $10 to provide one.
There are a lot of other hotel options on the same street!

The staff were extremely friendly and polite. However, there were a few issues with my room....one of the closet doors was off the track and made it difficult to open and close the closet; when running the water in the sink it started filling up very slow to drain. The hallway from the elevator to my room was very very hot, by the time I reached my room I was sweating. The food (room service) was adequate, not anything to remember. There were several other small issues, but the staff were excellent!

The front desk staff was welcoming and friendly, and the room was clean. The food on the breakfast buffet was good, and the restaurant opened on time - but half the food wasn't ready. We had to wait 10 minutes, or more, for the itmes we wanted. While getting ready in the morning, I discovered there was no shampoo in the bathroom. I reported this to the woman at the front desk as I was checking out. She didn't seem concerned.

Very pleased. We always travel with our 13lb., 3 year old Shih Tzu. My 1st. floor room provided me easy access to take my pet who is very well trained to potty. We loved the sliding door in our room giving us access to the pool. We also loved the quaint outdoor sitting area outside of our room. Bed was very comfortable. Neighbors were friendly. There could have been a more variety of breakfast foods offered. Overall a beautiful experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ALWSN Busy but quiet
I've stayed at this hotel before and want to first of all thank them for allowing the exhibitors for the Garden State Cat Show to stay here with their cats.
My room was comfortable and reasonably clean but had a rather pervasive and unidentifiable odor--perhaps from the air conditioner but not sure.
Bed was comfortable and the hotel was very quiet at night despite hosting a large family reunion and what appeared to be several tour groups of young people.
My biggest issue was that about 30 minutes after checking in, someone tried to enter my room as they had been given the same room. 15 minutes later, one of the hotel staff knocked on my door to 'see who was in the room.' I ended up going down to the lobby to get it straightened out. When I returned to my room, my keys no longer worked. At that point, I was more than annoyed since it was a long hike to the lobby and the elevators were not speedy.
The sports bar was OK but service tended to be slow. The food was good and reasonably priced.
Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful (despite giving my room out to other guests!).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Txpez Small beds and very worn out
Holiday Inn is always our first choice! This hotel is not near the standards of the typical Holiday Inn. The beds are the small doubles. The area hotels have the larger doubles. The hallways and rooms are very worn. Doors do not close properly. Very dated property top to bottom. Will never return to this property and will do more research on my future Holiday Inn stays. It was difficult to not endorse this hotel because we used our reward points.(have 100,000+ points)
Thank you for your time

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nancyld784 Quiet hotel. Great service.
All the staff were very helpful and very courteous. Would have liked to have outdoor pool open longer hours but it was closed early enough in the evening so it was quiet to sleep. Only had food at the breakfast buffet which had good selection and was good quality. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is convenient to many local businesses but a little difficult to find if you are unfamiliar with the area.

My wife and I had a very nice stay here, the only problem I had was after a day of activity and to wine down a bit by watching TV, about 10 to 12 channels were not working, including HBO. But staffing was great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mochacat67 Staff in need of customer service training
We arrived late and exhausted from our long trip. We had a Penske truck parked along the left side of the building. When we got up to leave, one or two of the employees parked their cars in such a way that we couldn't get out. Twice we inquired with the front desk person about the situation and he didn't care and said there's nothing he can do about it. Upon further questioning and asking for the hotel manager, the manager set things straight for us. As suspected, one of the kitchen employees parked his car directly behind our truck because it was "employee parking" although there was no sign indicating such. The cook proceeded to argue his point with us that we were parked in employee parking and the hotel manager stopped him from talking that way with us. Between the front desk person and the kitchen staff, we feel very strongly that a shake up needs to happen and the staff must understand that we are the paying customers and deserve courtesy and respect. The hotel manager was excellent and deserves praise for how he handled the situation with our truck.

Be very clear when ordering in the restaurant. My husband ordered a plain omelette, and was brought an eggwhite omelette. No time to reorder. Luckily the food is tasty there and he said it wasn't bad.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nekoko AnimeNext weekend hotel suggestions
The room was very nice, but the bed was a bit firm for my taste. The pillows aren't comfortable at all. Please get softer ones.
Also I have a suggestion for future cons... When you know ahead of time that you're hosting an anime convention, maybe consider not booking normal peoples rooms near the con goers rooms (or maybe just reserve the whole hotel for con goers). There was a cranky old lady listening (like seriously going down the hall; ear to door) for noisy rooms and pounding on peoples' doors and calling in noise complaints at like 9pm on the Saturday. That's just ridiculous.

I was in New Jersey for business and the holiday inn was the closest hotel to where I was working, so I was extremely pleased when my stay was much more than I expected. Staff was friendly and helpful, hotel was clean and up to date in appearances, food from jerseys in the hotel was excellent, and there was free wifi which is a must these days and some places still don't offer that. I was very relaxed especially for being on a business trip I definitely recommend staying here

I have been staying with this holiday inn hotel for the past 5 years for the anime convention, Animenext. I have always enjoyed staying here. This year there was a problem with my room. I had reserved two double bed rooms but for some odd reason the system said I reserved. Two (1) king bed rooms. I talked to the front desk staff and they apologized after realizing the error and offered rollaway beds for the trouble at no charge for the whole weekend. I really appreciated their kindness and will always choose this holiday inn for this convention or area visit. Thanks for the great weekend holiday inn somerset- bridgewater. I'll see you next year! :D

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. When I first arrived even though it wasn't check in time I was welcomed immediately and allowed to check in. This was a great feeling as I had just come from a long flight. The room was a fantastic size and the furniture were great.
There were times when the internet wireless was slow but still overall it was great to use. Being able to use it in the room and in other areas like the lobby and the bar was a great addition.
If I were to visit the area again I be happy to come to this hotel and stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MeowMix77 It's a Toss Up
First off, let me begin by saying that the manager on duty the evening I arrived was very polite and very helpful in quickly getting my room key and settled in. The hotel is in a perfect location as well, and make it easy to get where you need to go in the area. The room itself was clean, as was the attached bathroom, and spacious. This is my second time staying in this particular location, and it has been a pleasant visit for the most part each time.
There were downsides to my visit, however:
In the room- the bathroom door did fully close- the knob no longer clicked into place, so there was no locking option.
I had placed a "Do Not Disturb" sign on my doorknob, as it was late when I had arrived. During the night, it was removed by someone, which led to me being awakened by housekeeping three times. I am very displeased by this, and was told at the desk that since it was removed, they had no way of knowing and there was nothing they could do about it. The final time, when I was resigned to getting up and had unlocked my door for room service, housekeeping just began to walk in until I loudly said "Excuse me?"
The final complaint I have in regards to the visit was the food I received. I ordered room service, which had arrived in a reasonable amount of time, however it was nothing like described in the menu. I had ordered the French Toast- described as, well, French Toast. Bread dipped in egg batter, cooked, topped with cinnamon. What I received was three cinnamon rolls. I ordered one scrambled egg, which tasted like rubber. I ended up primarily only eating the bacon I also ordered and my tea for breakfast. It was very disappointing, especially for the cost.
All in all- it's a toss up. It's a good hotel to stay in, especially if you have meetings in that area, and the rooms are very reasonable. There are also great amenities if you need or wish to use them. However, I would not recommend the food, and recommend finding a way to make sure your "Do Not Disturb" sign stays on if you use it.
