Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kris22Cakes NJ Holiday Inn... not up to par!
Hotel was OK. Pool was awesome and the hotel looked great from the lobby and outside!
rooms were outdated - old furniture and old beds
no microwave or mini-fridge and we were staying for 2.5 days!

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Angel C Very nice stay
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.

After a very long trip this hotel had no whirlpool. Weary travelers certainly welcome a soothing whirlpool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jellen31 Excellent hotel, 1 tiny problem
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.

Would recommend to others riding the Greenway through the area. Close to trail and no hassels taking our equipment to the room.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anext14 Very helpful staff
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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ShadowCM Fantastic Service
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.

Stayed 2 nights using point breaks. Room is nice except carpet needs replacement. They did not clean my room per my request and cancelled key code after 1st night. However, manager was nice enough to reimburse points for 2nd night. No free coffee in the lobby which is a bummer. May stay again if they offer point breaks.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobcat61 Surprise at checkout
This was the second time i stayed at this Hotel. Like the Hotel a lot ! Great Bar! Close to our corporate Office where i need to be once every 4 weeks. I was very much surprised at the check out. i stayed for 3 nights. I had a rate confirmed at the check in , but this rate was only applied for the first night, for the second night the rate was increases by 20$ and then the 3 night by another 20$. I asked the lady at the checkout that i feel i should have been made aware of the increase at check in and she stated that's not company policy.
this was very upsetting and i most likely have to look for another hotel in the future, witch is a shame.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dan1589 Comfortable and quiet room and bed.
The overall room was excellent.
My only complaint was that the sink in the bathroom was set high. It is set on an oversized marble frame which makes its sit quite far from the mirror. The rest of the mirror going to the left is over the toilet. Really not set up well for shaving or even seeing your face.

On one of the two nights I stayed there was no hot water in the morning. I was given an explanation that someone turned a valve off in error. I was told that management would do something for those affected at checkout. When checkout time came the clerk at the desk said they were not compensating customers for the inconvenience. After asking to speak to a manager they offered to take a whopping $10.00 off my bill. Doubt I will come back...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Boundbrooker Good but showing its age
Have stayed here many times as the location and access are very good for purpose of my trips. Rooms are generally clean and comfortable and staff are helpful. Nice to have a lounge on site. Hotel also offers nice banquet rooms and services. Guest rooms are becoming dated. Bathroom in ground floor room was very, very cramped with very insufficient counter top area. Toilet had a crack in base (but not leaking yet). Also the lack of a refrigerator was disappointing. Rewards club complimentary ticket for the lounge no longer can be applied to alcoholic drinks.

Been staying at this property since 2004. Has been my default when out for business due to location.
- beds are too firm
- no soft pillows
- fitness facility has no weights
- and worst is their internet speed, one of the worst
Sorry but I will be staying at other property on my next trip.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CDHR Friendly staff
Very friendly staff at this hotel however the closets in all of the rooms are so annoying and should be repaired. They are all off their tracks and are very hazardous so beware. Almost fell over on me. Otherwise, the room is comfortable and the staff is very friendly. The food from room service is usually pretty good but had a bad experience with rotten Corned Beef Reuben on this stay. They were prompt to refund my money for the sandwich though. Being I stay here often on Business, I would love if the darn closets opened and closed properly!
