Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PATC1 Yes...the bed was comfortable...
I found this hotel to be comfortable, clean, and friendly...however - the pool experience was not good. Apparently, we arrived in the middle of a swimming lesson for what appeared to be local residences, with a very LOUD instructor. The breakfast was generic...would have loved fresh eggs...
Not sure if that will be a routine stop for me.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stpaulworker13 DON'T EXPECT THE ''DO NOT DISTURB'' KEY BLOCKER WILL PROTECT YOU FROM THE STAFF HERE....READ INSIDE
I travel for work a good amount during the year. I stay in IHG hotels, and have stayed all over the country. When I booked a reservation at this location in East Brunswick, NJ I thought it would be a pleasant experience. I checked in on 6-8-2013 at around 23:00 (11:00pm) When I got to the room one of the smoke detectors in the room was making a beeping sound. I called the front desk, and the front desk people came up to look at the Carbon Monoxide detector. It needed a battery, so they took it down with them. In the morning at about 09:00 I placed the privacy Key Blocker, because I did not want anyone in my room. I went down to eat breakfast, and talked to the gal at the front desk. She knew of the alarm issue in my room, and tried to call the maintenence on hand, but he did not answer. I was running late for a meeting, so I told her that either I could install it, or I would be back later and we can have it fixed then. I came back from work to find that the detector had been replaced; which means someone had complete disregard for the Key Blocker, and came in my room. I called the front desk immediately, and was told that the managers son who had done it, and I shoudn't be worried. I explained that it is not who was in there. It is about a guests expectation of privacy. If the tool that is designed to let staff know that you are not to be disturbed is disregarded; then how can anyone ever feel safe here. Otherwise the staff, facility, and food was pretty good here. I just rated so low, so people would know about the invasion of privacy. I will not stay here again. I thought that was like the most high held tradition for hotel staff....

Traveled from NH to Del. to look at UDEL. and needed a place to stop overnight. The Hotel was right off the Highway and very clean, the staff was very friendly. Just what we needed for a one night stay would recommend to anyone needing to stop.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stokil1 Just OK
We stayed here for one night as a stopover on a trip to Washington. I’m not really sure what to say about this hotel; there was nothing really bad, but nothing really good either. We arrived late in the evening (the hotel is a bit hard to find in the dark, tucked away behind another large hotel) on a Saturday night. It was a warm night, and there were a number of young adults hanging around the parking lot and the lobby. We wondered if we had stumbled into a sports team tournament. That being said, the stay was fine. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was standard. Staff was okay. We left by 9:30 the next morning. When we left, the parking lot was almost empty, but it was completely littered with garbage. A worker was out cleaning it up, and I know the hotel can’t control the stupid littering actions of some people, but it did contribute to our overall impression of the place. If I was in the area again, I would probably look elsewhere, I think.

We were traveling from the NE and decided to stay somewhere at the last minute. We wanted to get on the south side of NY to stay the night and called this location. The gentleman was very helpful and the location is one of the best we have stayed. The breakfast had many items and the latest in equipment.

Stayed at the hotel for the Waterfest weekend.
Hotel staff was low key, and had no problem with us hanging out in the parking lot as long as we wanted.

Front desk clerk(Kathy) for morning shift needs to groom her skills and she needs to be little courteous. I myself was once a front desk clerk and used to cover all shifts. Rest all clerks were good, Robert/Mesh and one other guy i don't know the name.

This place was great....I stayed there with 2 friends and we enjoyed our 4 day 3 night stay. The room was excellent everything was clean, and ,up to date. The staff Had the most friendly attitudes, the customer care was top notch, they made sure everything was right and that we had no issues. The location was great, had excess to many restaurants, stores, a mall, movie theaters, and other places. We commuted on the train to NY which was awesome and conveniently located not that far from the hotel. OUR STAY WAS GREAT..... We will definitely be staying there again....

This is our favorite hotel to stay at, while in the East Brunswick area. The staff is very professional and friendly. Always making their guest feel right at home. And very helpful with any request.

Always when staying in New Brunswick we choose the Holiday Inn Express. Wouldn't think of staying elsewhere. My only complaint this time was that the reservations were incorrect and I didn't catch it time to correct before we arrived.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marlow615 Worst experience EVER
We got to motel and the room was HOT! We called the front desk and employee can up a reset air. Room never got below 70 and we had to sleep on top of the covers. Got up next morning and when we went out for the day my husband spoke to mgr and she promised to have it fixed. Well their fix was a room at 69 degrees and still HOT. We told the night mgr when we came in and his response was " we'll see about moving you to a new room tomorrow". Needless to say we checked out the next morning after sleeping in a HOT room again. We had to go to another motel as we were to stay another night. For the price we paid was not worth it! Room 200 sucked!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Veepers Clean and comfortable hotel; Needs more pool towels
We stayed at this hotel with a soccer team of middle-school girls and had a great time. They were able to put our group in a block of rooms that were mostly all together and the kids (and adults) had a really nice time. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the showers had hot water, the breakfast was great and the staff very accommodating.
The only area for improvement would be the pool-towel situation. When the hotel knows it is going to be having several sports teams of kids coming in (there was also a boys' baseball team staying at the same time), they should make an effort to stock enough towels for everyone who uses the pool. Instead, we got to the pool and found a sign that said "we only have a limited number of towels for the pool." This forced us to bring towels from our rooms to the pool -- and we subsequently had to re-use these soggy, chlorinated towels when we took showers later. I feel a hotel of this size and caliber should make an effort to have enough towels at the pool for all the guests who need them.
Otherwise, a great hotel and a great stay! Highly recommended.

This hotel is 100% NON-smoking. Rooms are comfortable and clean and well kept. There is a refrigerator and microwave in each room - and even a coin operated washer and dryer in case you need it. The breakfast room is clean, bright and comfortable and the lady who takes care of it REALLY takes care of it!
Location is convenient, being about 3 minutes off Turnpike Exit 9 - but there is no noise noticed from the highway inside the hotel.

This place is almost brand new. I have paid much more for a much worse experience elsewhere. Great staff, decent breakfast, nice pool. If I have one (minor) criticism it's that the treadmill in the gym is of low quality and not really made for heavy usage. They really need to upgrade it. The bike and weights are fine though.
