Overall, I would rate this hotel 4 1/2 stars. The room was clean and quiet, the staff was friendly. The hotel ( as other hotels have done during the Covid) could have provided a 'grab and go' breakfast. They did not. If you're staying here during the pandemic, best to bring additional food (snacks at least) and beverages.

So so

No coffee or breakfast included and it's very expensive to purchase considering the food is very mediocre and service is super slow. Everything is just moderately okay for the price but I know I could get better someplace else the pool area is gross and the courtyard was under construction no comfortable place to sit

Poor Air-conditioned and very humid room.

Pros: not at all
Cons: every area! carpet clean with shampoo. all bed sheets, molded wall.
The room was very smelled mold or fungus. Thousand of ants crawling to my bags which I put on the carpet floor. The room was looks clean but not really. The air conditioner was not working properly so the room was very humid. It was so humid all my clothes are dampen.

Nice hotel clean and reasonable price.

This hotel was clean which is always my number one priority. The hotel really does look like the pics online. It's neat and the staff was friendly. Our room was comfortable. My only real complaint is that the little Starbucks like cafe was overwhelmed with not enough staff and it took us an hour to get coffee and fast breakfast foods. They were totally unorganized and we got our food after others who came after us. It was a mess. They need more help. And there is no continental breakfast which would have been better.

Not accessible without a car

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close
I arrived in Princeton by train and stayed at the Courtyard because it was close to the campus and train station. However, to arrive on the campus, there is only a jogging trail (unpaved) and there are no shuttles to the campus or train station. The main road is a large highway with no sidewalks. Taxis are around $20 for the 2 mile trip. Not a bad hotel, but if you are staying for the proximity, you might be disappointed.
