Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LG2013 Comfortable, clean, convenient location
The hotel is very easy to get to from major roads. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Not bad at all. The included breakfast was appreciated, but not the best I ever had. There actually are many places to eat within a short drive. A swimming pool or onsite gym would be welcome additions. Overall, not a bad choice for a night or two.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by notsurewhyIbother Well below average for Holiday Inn Express
Well below average for a Holiday inn Express.
I have always considered Holiday Inn as a close second choice when traveling for business. This stay may cause me to reevaluate that... and not in a good way. I'm going to assume you've stayed at Holiday Inn Express before and only mention things that seem out of the ordinary, good or bad (so I'm not going to complain about the high def TV with only low def stations or the horrible cinnamon scented toiletries because that is what you expect from this chain and most hotels in this price range).
-Close to the interstate
-Very comfortable, firm bed with multiple pillow options
-Thick curtains are helpful for day-sleepers
-Internet speeds were acceptable if not fast (I was using during non-peak hours so your mileage may vary)
-Front desk staff was pleasant (surprising in New Jersey)
-High price for a room considering the um... rural and uh.. economically challenged area.
-There is no onsite fitness room/center, you have to drive several miles to a local gym if you want to work out (exactly what a tired business traveler wants: to get back in the car to go get a work out). You may consider this a Pro if you prefer to find a local gym rather than use a hotel fitness center, as you don't have to pay the $10 to Join "Jersey Fitness" for the month.
-The towels were the worst I have seen at a hotel costing more than $40/night. They were rough and often threadbare. This is particularly odd, because every other Holiday Inn Express I've stayed at had very nice towels.
-Even though I let them know at the front desk I was working nights from 7pm to 7am and would be sleeping during the day, on two separate occasions, both when I admittedly forgot the "do not disturb" sign, the cleaning lady was at my door screaming (and I do mean SCREAMING) "HOUSEKEEPING" around 11am. Who needs REM sleep, right?
-Related to the previous, I was told the cleaning folks would be by "first thing" since I was working nights, but they seldom arrived before I went to bed ~8am, so my room was only cleaned about once a week.
-You have to get quarters for the laundry machines. Seriously, just charge me an extra dollar or two a day for the room and don't nickel and dime me with the washing machine and dryer. It isn't about the money, it's about the inconvenience of procuring a roll of quarters to do a couple of loads of laundry every week.
I realize this sounds like a lot of bad points, but I stayed here for over a month, so I had more than the average amount of time to accumulate annoyances with this hotel, so keep that in mind. The hotel wasn't a complete pit, and if you're only staying a short while, the beds are excellent and it is clean, but there are many areas they need to work on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maddie75 convenient location
We have stayed at this Holiday Inn quite a few times as it
is a convenient stop for us on our way south & back up
north. The rooms are always clean & comfortable &
the breakfast selection is very good. Would recommend
it to our friends.

Don't seem to enforce their non-smoking policy. I tried three rooms, all smelly. Finally gave up.

Stayed overnight while making a college visit. Easy access from the highway. The room was comfortable and the hotel was quiet. Staff was very friendly and handled a small issue with the TV very quickly. Son will be attending college nearby so we'll be regular visitors for the next 4 years.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rick45 Nice Hotel, not so great location
W stayed here on the way back home from Georgia. The hotel was clean, room was nice. staff was friendly, but the location was not what I expected. If your looking for a nice restaurant close by, good luck. We ended up getting a sub from the Subway, which was inside the gas station across the street.
Like I said the Hotel was fine, right off the New Jersey Turnpike, but the area was not what I expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MJR1976 Nice Hotel with easy highway access
Overall, it was a nice hotel to stay at. With it's close proximity to I95, it made it very easy to get on and off the highway and easy to get to my appointment the following day. Only drawback was there was no gym onsite, but they made up for that by offering a free membership to the local gym that was no more than a couple of miles away.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kucycay1 Worst Experience
The comforter was like a sheet on the bed. The breakfast was the same thing for the entire week. We actually felt that we were held hostage after we asked on Monday to leave and they said fine, but you will be charged for the entire week.
No one spoke to even say good morning in fact they looked down as you passed the desk. You were not recognized as a Priority Memeber, they was no Managers Reception. Will never stay there again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by work123 Uncleaned bathroom, uncomfortable pillows and dirty iron.
The bathroom still had hair on the floor and did not look like it had been cleaned prior to my arrival. It did look better the 2nd day. The pillows were lumpy, when a call was placed to the front desk asking for non lumpy pillow they were not sure if they had any. It took 30 minutes to get more lumpy pillows. The iron was so dirty that it stuck to my pants and stained them. Another 30 minutes to wait for a new iron. Surprised that housekeeping did not pick up on the iron, it was almost solid black on the bottom. Not satisfied with this Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave57 Easy and convenient
Staff was very friendly, very accommodating, and very professional. Nice genuine people, which isn't easy to find on the road these days. Everything else was standard HI Express fare. Didn't explore the area; just used this for a stopping-off point on a long trip. Quick and easy access on and off 295, Delaware Memorial Bridge and the NJ Turnpike. Cheap gas nearby, too!
